WATCH: Dr. Jon LaPook Scrambles to Make His ‘CBS This Morning’ Live Shot

One of the most challenging parts of being an anchor is when you occasionally have to fill just a few more seconds of time, whether it is to get the program to a commercial or, in the case of “CBS This Morning” today… to a guest.

Look behind Charlie Rose in the video below, see CBS News medical contributor Dr. Jon LaPook scramble from the green room, realizing that he was supposed to be on-set. Listen to Rose start to speak verrrrry slooowwwlly, then watch as Norah O’Donnell steps in to fill the remaining few seconds before LaPook took his seat next to them.

Well played, Rose and O’Donnell, well played.
