Katie Couric, Roger Ailes, Piers Morgan and Matt Lauer Walk Into a Super Bowl Pep Rally…

If it seemed like TV news was particularly quiet this afternoon, it was likely because New York’s Michaels restaurant hosted a pre-Super Bowl “Pep Rally,” and just about everyone was there.

Don’t believe us? Among the attendees were Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, Fox News anchors Brian Kilmeade and Jamie Colby, ABC’s Katie Couric and Andrea Canning, NBC’s Matt Lauer, Brian Williams and Savannah Guthrie, CNN’s Piers Morgan, CBS’ Chris Licht and Gayle King and, just for good measure, Whoopi Goldberg, Star Jones, singer John Mayer, John McEnroe, Cablevision CEO James Dolan and movie tycoon Harvey Weinstein, among many others.

You can see more names at the Michael’s New York Twitter feed.

Update: Our own Diane Clehane was there, and spotted Regis Philbin, Bill O’Reilly, former New York Governor George Pataki and plenty of others. Her report and photos are here.

In other words, it was quite the crowd. Couric and Ailes even had a nice chat, as Niche Media founder Jason Binn noted on Twitter.

“Hi, I’m John Mayer, and I’m the World’s Biggest Megyn Kelly Fan”

kelly_11-14.bmpAll morning America’s Newsroom teased video of John Mayer declaring his love for Megyn Kelly, and just before 11amET, the video love letter was played.

So what does he love about her? “I love the Kathleen Turner circa 1886 1986 rasp. I love your perfect facial symmetry.”

Also, her name: “You know what’s sexy about that? The ‘y.’” Oh, and “She’s a smart lady too.”

As for co-anchor Bill Hemmer, “He doesn’t exist to me,” said Mayer.

“My husband Doug said I was just a little too enthusiastic about that news,” joked Kelly, but she continued, “I think we should double with John and Jennifer.”

We’re still searching for the video (hint, hint)…
