Ellen DeGeneres mocks TV weather reporting
Last Thursday, Ellen Degeneres' monolog featured a familiar topic: the TV weather report. Her commentary, which laments the dumbing down of weathercasts, is harsh but funny. For example, she complains: "The weather reports treats us like we're idiots all the time. There's a big smiley face on the sun. . . . It's like we're first graders..."
Veterans Day was not the first time DeGeneres poked fun at TV weather reporting. DeGeneres stepped in front of the green screen during a weather segment at Chicago's NBC affiliate this past summer. The Huffington Post reported "Ellen joined weather forecaster Brant Miller for the funniest forecast ever. Well, aside from all the rain."
