    i agree. it helps that he seems uncomfortable and a little out of place in those schmoozy morning "news" shows..the sign of a serious reporter IMO.

    Every TGP thread has a Seinfeld episode that applies to it in one way or another. Let this one be no exception. ;)

    He does a good job reading a teleprompter. Glad you are impressed.

    I like him. He was the local news guy in Chicago while I was growing up. Seems like he injects less of his 'personality' than others, which I appreciate. It's the news after all, not Brian Williams Adventure Hour Tales, J. Peterman style.

    He lost me in 2009 when he said that "....more than 90% of plane crashes happen within 100 feet of the ground".

    Seriously?

    If he were to vanish altogether, I'd be A-OK with that.

    And, no, I DON'T want Williams back.

    A great job of what? Reading off the teleprompter to tell us about the weather? The "world news" isn't news

    His name is Lester Holt, he's a teleprompter reader on NBC.

    The black guy was going out with the Hispanic girl on Seinfeld.

    yea, he's getting his job back. some mea culpas, and some serious soul searching and he'll be golden.

    He's a real reporter. He works his ass off, sometimes going months without a day off. And he's in the field, on the ground, for just about every big story. Sometimes the first one there.

    And he's old school.. the news is the star.

    I think Brian is done at NBC but guys like that land on their feet though... Look at Geraldo Rivera and Keith Olbermann over the years. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back on another network.

    I like Lester Holt okay, but I don't watch that network anyway.

    Lester looks so smart.

    I love Seinfeld, and that was a genius episode.
