Sometimes, when Sara takes questions from fourth hour viewers for Kathie Lee and Hoda, things get a little dangerous.

Like when a fan put the ladies on the spot, asking whom they'd rather date: Al or Matt.

"That is so unkind," said Hoda, who wasn't about to get in hot water for choosing between early-hour studs.

But the ladies are consummate diplomats, and quickly talked their way around the question.

"They're both happily married and we would never date either," said KLG, who then pointed out that freshman anchor Willie Geist should technically have his hat in this awkward ring as well. Although, as they pointed out, he's also happily married.

All in all, they managed to not pick a favorite, or answer definitively. Nicely played, you crafty anchoresses.
