Taylor Berman · 04/19/13 07:04PM

As the scene in Watertown, Mass escalated, news channels were, understandably, confused about exactly what was happening. One brave reporter for New England Cable News admitted as much live on the air, albeit accidentally. As Brian Williams cut to the channel, an unidentified reporter can be heard saying "Oh, you're not listening? Well, I don't know shit."

Ari Emanuel Unhappy With Brian Williams Interview, Sends Furious Legal Letter to NBC

Taylor Berman · 03/24/13 04:46PM

Brian Williams, famed misspeller of names, is in hot water with powerful Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel. It seems as though Ari was caught off guard by Williams's hard-hitting approach during a recent interview with the Brothers Emanuel, including Ari, Chicago mayor Rahm and bioethicist Ezekiel. What was supposed to be a fluff piece to promote Ezekiel's memoir about the brothers instead, according to a New York Post source, resembled something "from Meet the Press."

Brian Williams Talks Nepotism and His Kids with David Letterman

Matt Toder · 05/15/12 11:57PM

On tonight's Late Show with David Letterman, NBC news honcho and Gawker correspondent Brian Williams chatter with David Letterman on a variety of subjects, one of which was his kids. When Letterman suggested that Williams might hire his son, as aspiring sports journalist, Williams joked about that being nepotism. Hey Brian, using your celebrity to connect your daughter to Girls producer Judd Apatow is nepotism too.

How Fate Plucked Allison Williams From YouTube Obscurity and Dropped Her on Her Dad's Friend's TV Show

John Cook · 04/16/12 02:27PM

In making the unending publicity rounds for Girls, co-star Allison Williams has been peddling a YouTube discovery myth: Producer Judd Apatow, the tale goes, happened to come across a video of her singing a self-produced mash-up of the theme song to Mad Men in October 2010 and immediately knew that she was the actress to play Marnie, Lena Dunham's uptight girlfriend.

Brian Williams Uses Bullhorn to Stop Jon Stewart from Mocking His Fire Alarm Snafu

Matt Cherette · 11/30/11 11:49PM

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was forced to address the nation yesterday with the addition of a faulty fire alarm, which blared loudly in the background for nearly two-thirds of the broadcast. Even though Williams remained largely unfazed by the disturbance, the incident served as fodder for Jon Stewart on tonight's Daily Show—that is, until his own segment was interrupted by a loud siren. (I suggest it was Brian Williams, in the kitchen, with the bullhorn.)

Matt Cherette · 11/21/11 11:24PM

One week after conducting an unbearable telephone interview with accused Penn State child rapist Jerry Sandusky on NBC's Rock Center, Bob Costas returned to the program tonight to talk about what's coming next. "There has to be more," said Costas, speculating on both the breadth of the accusations against Sandusky, as well as how much former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno knew about them without ever taking action. "There will be more."

Jimmy Fallon and Brian Williams Slow Jam the Latest Occupy Wall Street News

Matt Cherette · 10/28/11 01:33AM

Brian Williams occasionally stops off at Late Night to slow jam the news with Jimmy Fallon. Since Rock Center, Williams' new primetime show, debuts on Monday and he wouldn't want anyone out there to forget to tune in, God forbid, he paid a visit to Fallon tonight to add some suave sexiness to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Watch them make the musical magic happen—and struggle to remember the name of Kim Kardashian's husband—above.

Brian Moylan · 10/04/11 12:44PM

NBC has pulled the plug on The Playboy Club after last night's episode only attracted about 3.2 million viewers. It was the first show from the fall season to get the ax. Like we didn't see that coming.
