Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

July 30, 2008 -

It's a safe bet that Meredith Vieira wasn't hired to replace Katie Couric based on her singing ability.

On this morning's program, Vieira along with Today Show cohost Matt Lauer, weather guy Al Roker and correspondent Natalie Morales played Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer.

Living on a Prayer lost.

GP: Thanks to reader Adam Muller for the heads-up!

I thought it was awesome!!! The point was that video games can be fun and they looked like they was having a good time. I'm sure they werent airing this to show that the NBC staff is the greatest freaking rock band players. it was for a laugh and I laugh and enjoy every moment of it.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Too bad they didn't play 'More Than A Feeling'.  I've been told that Boston songs have the potential to cure cancer.  With millions of viewers, that could have been a heck of a lot of cancer cured.

A respectable effort, they win half the internet as a prize.

I just wanna throw this in, Rock Band 2's songlist sounds amazing.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Well, at least they had fun.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

It was so funny I was laughing so hard becuase it is so bad.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I can't think of anything witty to say, so I'll just say this:

LOL!!!!!

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I couldn't rag out on people for trying something new.  Gaming is about having fun no matter how well (or badly) you play.

A segment that doesn't portray gamers as monster mass murderers just waiting to pop and highlights adult accessibility and good old(new?) fashioned fun?  We should be overjoyed rather than sneering down our noses like elitest wankers ; )

 

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

terrible, sure, but they were positive and seemed to be having fun.

That was... terrible.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I like the way that of all the non gaming media outlets I've seen play Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Pump it Up or DDR, this was the first time it seemed like they played enough to get the hang of it before playing it live. Usually "Clank clank wail *female anchor screams* clank whizz bonk FAIL!" It's almost as though they genuinely enjoyed it.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

The new rockband has a 'no-fail' option built in.  Switch it on and no matter how bad you play you can still get through the whole song.

The best thing about that video was what appeared to be examples of the figures you'll be able to buy of your characters at the 2:48 mark.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Looked like they had fun, and thats what it is all about

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I don't think the crowd shared their enthusiasm though..

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Bravo to the Today Show for not ragging on video games and actually picking one up and seeing what the fuss is about!  I'm so glad they didn't go off on it like some tool musicians who say "this is rotting our children's minds, why not play a real guitar?"

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

I saw this this morning. Wondering if it would get here. It was really bad. The best part came when some kid was substituted for Matt Lauer. The kid just stood there playing the game, no bobbing or anything.

And yet, not quite as embarrassingly painful as Nintendo's demo of Wii Music.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Agreed.

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

Wow Meredith is going to replace Katie Courich?  Awsome.  She is a class act and I could care less how badly she plays Rock Band.  xD

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

katie courich works for CBS, this was MSNBC. That replacement already happened. If I'm wrong on this just tell me.

Also, I lol'd a lot at this, I was hoping they would wind up failing or something though...

 

 

Re: Meredith Vieira, Today Show Crew Play Rock Band ...Badly

You're right, Meredith replaced Katie on NBC's Today show a long time ago... and Katie went elsewhere.  I wish they had a little closer up shot (and story about) the figureens (sp?) you can make of your rockers... It looked like Harmonix made a quick set to look like Today Show's cast (they were on the TV stand and camera quickly panned by), I kinda wanna see those things.

Sora-ChanI realize that they have ways getting around it, but one reason might be due to earthquakes.04/17/2014 - 4:42am
Matthew WilsonSF is a tech/ economic/ trade center it should be mostly tail building. this whole problem is because of the lack of tail buildings. How would having tail apartment buildings destroy SF? having tail buildings has not runed other cities around the US/world04/16/2014 - 10:51pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the issue is you can not build upwards anywhere in SF at the moment, and no you would not. You would bring prices to where they should have been before the market distortion. those prices are not economic or socially healthy.04/16/2014 - 10:46pm
ZippyDSMleeYou still wind up pushing people out of the non high rise aeras but tis least damage you can do all things considered.04/16/2014 - 10:26pm
ZippyDSMleeANd by mindlessly building upward you make it like every place else hurting property prices,ect,ect. You'll have to slowly segment the region into aeras where you will never build upward then alow some aeras to build upward.04/16/2014 - 10:25pm
Matthew WilsonSF have to build upwards they have natural growth limits. they can not grow outwards. ps growing outwards is terable just look at Orlando or Austin for that.04/16/2014 - 4:15pm
ZippyDSMleeIf they built upward then it would becoem like every other place making it worthless, if they don't build upward they will price people out making it worthless, what they need to do is a mix of things not just one exstreme or another.04/16/2014 - 4:00pm
Matthew Wilsonyou know the problem in SF was not the free market going wrong right? it was government distortion. by not allowing tall buildings to be build they limited supply. that is not free market.04/16/2014 - 3:48pm
ZippyDSMleeOh gaaa the free market is a lie as its currently leading them to no one living there becuse they can not afford it makign it worthless.04/16/2014 - 3:24pm
Matthew WilsonIf you have not read http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/ you should. It is a bit stats heavy, but worth the read.04/16/2014 - 2:04pm
Matthew Wilsonthe issue is when is doesn't work it can screw over millions in new york city's case. more often than not it is better to let the free market run its course without market distortion.04/16/2014 - 9:36am
NeenekoTrue, and overdone stagnation is a problem. It is a tricky balance. It does not help that when it does work, no one notices. Most people here have benifited from rent controls and not even realized it.04/16/2014 - 9:23am
ZippyDSMleehttp://www.afterdawn.com/news/article.cfm/2014/04/15/riaa_files_civil_suit_against_megaupload04/16/2014 - 8:48am
ZippyDSMleeEither way you get stagnation as people can not afford the prices they set.04/16/2014 - 8:47am
Neenekowell, specifically it helps people already living there and hurts people who want to live there instead. As for 'way more hurt', majorities generally need less legal protection. yes it hurt more people then it helped, it was written for a minority04/16/2014 - 8:30am
MaskedPixelantehttp://torrentfreak.com/square-enix-drm-boosts-profits-and-its-here-to-stay-140415/ Square proves how incredibly out of touch they are by saying that DRM is the way of the future, and is here to stay.04/16/2014 - 8:29am

ConsterTo be fair, there's so little left of the middle class that those numbers are skewing.04/16/2014 - 7:42am
Matthew Wilsonyes it help a sub section of the poor, but hurt both the middle and upper class. in the end way more people were hurt than helped. also, it hurt most poor people as well.04/16/2014 - 12:13am
