A Compilation of Diane Sawyer's 'Drunk' Moments on Air During Election Night Coverage — VIDEO


Facebook and Twitter lit up last night over an apparently 'lit' Diane Sawyer at the ABC News election desk. George Stephanopoulos also appears appropriately alarmed while trying to appear totally calm.

Watch the astonishing and entertaining compilation, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. The scared expressions on the other guys' faces was the best part. BTW, Lots to celebrate last night, for us.

  4. I think it depends on how often you actually watch Diane to be able to notice something was "different" last night from her usual broadcasts of the ABC World News. She is able to project that sunny disposition quite well, but last night...she was practically giddy!

  5. Hard to take my eyes off George. So cute when wary.

  8. Seriously..!!
    She's quite obviously exhausted..can you imagine having to cover this
    From early morning to late night several days, months, years in a row.
    Give her a break..and focus on reality

  9. First, yes, she's definitely tipsy (or maybe advance sampling some of that newly legal marijuana?)
    Second, it's quite funny to see the tension on everyone's face.
    Third, big deal. She wasn't drunk, just 'lit'. (I worked with her for quite some time - that's not her when she's tired. That's Diane Sawyer after a drink. Well, 2. But not 3.)

  12. Hey, at least she wasn't Chris Matthews saying (also very late last night) "Thank God for Hurricane Sandy!" (about which he was very remorseful today, the day after).
