The best Morning Joe moments are the ones where people forget they're on television. Considering the show is three hours long and never features fewer than 47 panelists, these moments occur pretty much constantly. That's why people like it so much.

Even by the show's lofty standards, today's post-break discussion of late-night comedy was a pip. First Scarborough deems Jimmy Kimmel the "hot late night guy." Then Mika Brzezenski agrees with him. Then Donny Deutsch says Conan O'Brien's "angry act" is getting old. Then Scarborough agrees with him, but not before casually mentioning (twice!) how much Jay Leno "sucked" in prime time. Then everybody gets quiet, because they realize they're on NBC. Then Scarborough makes fun of Deutsch's purple tie.
