It happens with some frequency on air. In the rush of air time, guests screw up the host’s name. And hosts make a fair number of flubs themselves. Just recently NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called FNS host Chris Wallace “Mike” twice in one sitting before Wallace had enough and corrected him.

Todd could be heard tentatively laughing in the background.
