10 television professionals losing it on air

Sometimes it’s when you shouldn’t laugh that you need to the most.

WHEN YOUR JOB is to be on television, you’ve got to be able to control yourself.

You can’t use bad language, make distracting facial expressions, or get overly emotional in the line of duty.

Occasionally, however, things get the best of everyone.  Sometimes, you just have to let your feelings out.

That’s what happened to these ten television professionals who lost it in the line of duty.
