I also really want to thank the people in this room, who you can’t see, who are the ones behind the camera, and downstairs in our control room, they’re the ones who make the show happen and make Lester and I look good. You all are the best. You have made me laugh and have made me — or have made coming to work in the morning at the crack of dawn genuinely fun for me. And last but not least, I have to thank the man sitting next to me. I cannot have a better co-host or a better friend.”
