Kathie Lee Gifford’s son Cody is interning at the “Today” show this summer. As TVNewser notes, he’ll be “reviewing movies for his mother’s fourth hour.”

Here’s why Cody — a film studies major — thinks he’s qualified: “I think that as you get older, you know, you kinda — no one’s fault — but you get a little out of touch with contemporary issues, films, and whatnot. Maybe not out of touch, you can be knowledgeable about it, but you’re not really — it’s not your generation anymore. And that’s no fault of anyone’s, but I think I can bring, maybe, a little more awareness and, kind of, a relevancy, that maybe isn’t there with older people.”

Gene Shalit, you’ve been warned.
