A loud, unrelenting alarm screamed for nearly four minutes this morning during the best part of Live! With Kelly and Michael—the part at the beginning when they talk about their weekends. The two remained alarmingly graceful and professional throughout.

“So, we’re just supposed to talk?” hollers Michael about 90 seconds into their polite chatter. “Keep talking?”

“Oh, it’s not bad at home?” yells a sarcastic Ripa to a producer off-camera. “OK, good.”

It was as bad at home.
