Tucker Carlson had some explaining to do on Saturday when his nap time was interrupted by his job as host of the morning show Fox & Friends.

After host Alisyn Camerota finished reading the top headlines at around 7:30 a.m. ET, the cameras returned to the studio where Carlson was soundly sleeping on the infamous “curvy couch.”

“I don’t think we’re being good co-hosts right now,” Camerota quietly giggled, rousing Carlson from his slumber.

“I know we’re not on television so it doesn’t bother me,” Carlson said as he stretched. “Is this honestly live?”

“In the 15 years of this program, I don’t think that’s ever happened,” co-host Mike Jerrick pointed out.

Carlson explained that he was more tired than usual because he had hosted Sean Hannity’s Fox News show the night before.

“And all of the sudden, I was having these happy thoughts and I dosed off,” he said. “Is this honestly on TV? I’m just going to roll with it.”
