Ever since News on the Deuce debuted in late March, local viewers have known they're likely to see something unintentionally funny (or at least uncomfortably lame) within seconds of tuning in. But few moments have been as teeth-grindingly hilarious as one that occurred on last night's broadcast.

At the end of this footage, Parente turned to anchor Kellie MacMullan, who the station has worked overtime to portray as musically hip (see the photo above), and asked, "Favorite Beatles song?"
