Dan Abrams and The Bold On-Air Look

Someone's pressing their luck on the hair.jpgThanks be to the tipster who bade us watch for Dan Abrams’ foray into on-air role-playing last week. Our favorite was his English accent during Friday’s “Your Rebuttal” segment, responding in his best English accent to a viewer claim that he was nerdier than Harry Potter: “Wot? Nerdier Than Harry Pottah?” Can you blame us for swooning? Okay, maybe you can, if you’re Anderson Cooper and you’re jealous. Point being, Dan Abrams is much geekier than I am. Hurrah!
