In an interview on Monday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith talked about his coverage of Hurricane Katrina–and about that time he intended to say “block party” on-air, but said something entirely different.

“I have no idea how that happened,” Smith said on-air afterwards. “But it won’t happen again.” Of course, that didn’t stop Meyers from playing the video, which he described as the best on-air “save” ever:

Asked about Donald Trump’s criticism of Megyn Kelly after the Republican presidential debate, Smith defended Kelly’s question:

“I know why we’re a part of the story because Megyn asked a relevant question that the candidate didn’t want to answer…..she said what do you mean by these things and he didn’t really have an answer for that. At some point he’s going to have to have an answer for that just as all the candidates have to be held accountable for all that they’ve done until this point. It’s a part of the process. And that he turned it on her while running from the question was telling for me.”
