We've chronicled Tony Kornheiser's goofy exploits on PTI in the past. From quoting The Wire, singing Rebecca Black, being baffled by HAM, and attempting to tickle Wilbon, Kornheiser has the unique ability to entertain by bravely commenting on pop culture despite being a bit removed from the youthful demographics from which many of these references are proliferated. In a nutshell, he's your old embarrassing dorky dad or uncle who thinks he is hilarious and he is, but because he's YOUR family member, you disapprove. However your friends encourage him and when someone else's family member falls into this bucket, you eat it up.

Today we had two new Kornheiser gems. He opened the show rapping Sir Mix-A- Lot and later during the live commercial cut in, explained to Barkley his issues with Lean Cuisine as a staple of an attempted diet. Below are both clips.


While PTI can sometimes be a bit of overkill in terms rehashing a lot of topics that are already a bit stale, the show thrives due mainly to the personalities and chemistry of the Wilbon and Kornheiser. With a decade in the books, my question to you is what is the over/under of how long PTI will run for with Kornheiser and Wilbon as hosts ? 12 years? 15 years? 20 years? Rarely in television do you see that type of longevity.
