Rob Unleashed: “Pimp” & “B-i-t-c-h’s”

August 28, 2009

American Morning’s meteorologist Rick Marciano treated viewers to a salty version of Rob’s Road Show this morning. Covering the Dog Day’s Festival in Mystic, Connecticut, Rob praised Rufus, the 2006 Westminister Best in Show Champion, as a “pimp” in the “puppy world.” As he was concluding his segment, guest co-host Carol Costello asked, “Rob, you called Rufus a ‘pimp’: why is he a pimp? Rob ribaldly replied, “Well, look at him: come on. Just the way he carries himself and, I’m told, the b-t-i-c-h’s [sic] treat him well.”

As Carol and AM co-anchor John Roberts roared with laughter, Rob added, “That’s what they’re called in the dog world.” Carol riantly replied, “I’m sorry I asked.” Rob jested, “Hopefully, I’ll be back with you in another hour.” Carol playfully commanded, “Go back on that leash, Rob: You need it.” Rob agreed, “Yeah, I do. And, a gag.”

Maybe, AM’s executive producer Jamie Kraft should rename Rob’s Road Show, “Rob: Unleashed!” He might begin to give FNC’s Fox & Friends a real run for the money. Especially, if he lets John and co-anchor Kiran Chetry follow Rob’s lead.

Roberts: Rob’s Tight T-Shirt

August 14, 2009

American Morning weatherguy Rob Marciano displayed his yo-yo technique today and AM co-anchor John Roberts was impressed. Not with his skills but with his presentation!

Promoting an upcoming “Rob’s Road Show” segment (set in Orlando the site of a yo-yo world competition), Rob awkwardly attempted to keep the simple Duncan toy in motion. When he had some success, he gave the thumbs up sign and flexed his biceps in a constricting short-sleeved Polo: AM co-host Kiran Chetry commented, “He got the yo-yo back up to his hand: So, that’s a plus.” Seemingly, ribbing Rob for his gay/straight beefcake appeal,* John jested, “You know, you’re wearing a t-shirt that tight: It doesn’t matter what you do with a yo-yo!”

CNN: Home of AM’s Aphrodite, and, apparently, its Adonis.

* Merely, Google “Rob Marciano.”
