Kathie Lee & Hoda

The fourth hour devolves into a make-out party

It's Saint Patrick's Day in Studio 1A, and apparently, Jerry was the Blarney Stone.

First, the ladies' favorite prop manager got smooched in a funny little sketch Kathie Lee and Hoda made for the upfronts (which are sort of a big party for network advertisers). It was a fake game show called "Smashed" in which they chugged Champagne and answered silly questions. The prize? Smooching Jerry. KLG is a consummate professional, so she fully committed to the kiss. Like, really committed to it.

"Finally, something I want!" she shouted.

Then, when they played the clip this morning, Bobbie was inspired to lay one or six on him. Hoda, alas, stuck to teasing him and making uncomfortable eye contact. Well, happy St. Patty's! Hope you get half the action Jerry did.
