Brian Williams On '30 Rock': NBC Anchor Plays David Brinkley (VIDEO)

Brian Williams cracked up "30 Rock" fans with his sketch on a live episode of the show on Thursday.

The show did one live version for the East Coast and another for the West Coast. Williams, who has made cameo appearances on "30 Rock" before, did a parody of "The Huntley–Brinkley Report" for audiences on the West Coast.

In it, he posed as legendary newsman David Brinkley opposite Alec Baldwin as co-anchor Chet Huntley. The two of them play sexist newscasters who have a hard time understanding that their reporter Jamie Garnett — who was played by Tina Fey — is actually a woman.

"Look honey, you have a dynamite shape, but you're gonna have to shut up and let a man tell us what's happening," Williams said. "Now, is your father or a policeman nearby?"

The episode consisted of sketches, and was based on Kenneth describing his favorite moments on live TV.
