Shame On You, CNBC
For hiding your hotties. Margaret Brennan appeared on the Today Show today for the first time, since, well it's been so long I can't remember. And while she of course looked great, while all the regular hostesses did not, it points out that these appearances by the CNBC hotties have been few and far between. And I don't mean Erin Burnett playing news reader on the weekends and wearing pants; that don't cut it. That also doesn't mean Michele Caruso-Cabrera showing up on the Nightly News and then not getting the leg shots. CNBC has got the hotties to go against FBN. OK, they may not win, but they can put up a fight. CNBC/NBC seems either unwilling or uninterested in doing so. It's something that they can do quite easily as well. They've had plenty of opportunities to do so in the past few weeks but they have refused to take advantage. Meanwhile, Liz and Alexis from FBN have made appearances on CBS Early Show and have looked great. Dagen and Go-Go have appeared on the M&J show. CNBC, are you taking notes? Of course not.
Shame on you also for bringing back the chairs, then not doing it for the rest of the week, then bringing it back today with Becky in pants. Guess that's what Kernen meant by "phasing" it back in.
