Glenn Beck felt so bad about the way former Rep. Eric Massa meandered (and tickled) his way through their hour-long interview on Tuesday that he apologized to his viewers for it. "I think this is the first time I have wasted an hour of your time," the chagrined host said.

But while Beck may have learned one valuable lesson -- next time, spend a few minutes doing research before you book a guest for your full hour just on a hunch that he'll agree with your paranoid conspiracy theories -- he's apparently oblivious to the fact that he often wastes his viewers' time.
