On March 24th, 2016, comedian Gary Shandling passed away. I was putting together a tribute as I was on the air, and Siri was listening. Here's the blog from this huge Siri fail.

Gary Shandling's work inspired shows like The Office, 30 Rock, and even Curb Your Enthusiasm. He literally helped change sitcoms forever. I wanted to pay tribute to him, and what better way than to play some of his best stand-up moments during the show?

So, there I am, doing the show, editing Shandling's stand-up between songs,  and I hear my phone fussing at me. It turned out, Siri was listening to me edit AND do the weather. She thought I was asking her a question...the longest question ever!

I wish I could remember what I said instead of succumbing.
