“CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley is already known by his colleagues to be a very fit guy. Indeed, it was noted in a profile by B&C‘s Andrea Morabito over the Summer that Pelley has a 50 minute workout every day, and that there is a gym in the room next to his office with weight machines and a treadmill.

Still, for TV viewers, the suit hides his fit frame. Until last night, when “60 Minutes” showed Pelley working out with actor Hugh Jackman.

WATCH:

The New York Daily News was blown away by the segment, and collected some of the reactions:

Moments after the segment aired, Twitter exploded with comments about the Pelley’s primetime eye candy.

“Scott Pelley blew my mind tonight. #60 minutes of beefcake,” tweeted actor Rob McElhenney, who plays Mac on the FX hit show “Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

The 55-year-old’s jacked build had female tweeters tonges wagging, and several people said they never imagined Pelley to be in such great shape.

“Raise your hand if you saw Scott Pelley’s hulked-out upper body coming. Does CBS News have an in-house Equinox?” one viewer marveled.
