Speaking to the AP on the day it was announced he'd replace Katie Couric at the CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley said: "I don't do comedy, although I appreciate Brian [Williams]'s comedy very much." It's okay, Scott. You can always do cameos on some laugh-free CBS show, like CSI: NY — or Rules of Engagement. [HuffPo]
