When "Nightly News'" anchor Brian Williams checks in with WNBC New York's local team, sometimes the banter isn't all that riveting. In this clip we admire Williams' effort and use of deadpan (re. dental floss: "I'll use it prophylactically, as they say") to save this deflating raft. But, around two minutes and 15 seconds into the seemingly important, yet very uninteresting, segment, "Live at Five" lifer Sue Simmons takes a dive. Could Williams be amused?
