MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” celebrated its 10th anniversary on air Tuesday, opening the show with a sizzle reel of highlight moments from the past decade.
“Wow, that just gives you a sense of tired tired we all were, at all times,” said co-host Mika Brzezinski after watching a clip from 2008 featuring an expletive. “No f-bombs today.”
There were no f-bombs, but plenty of reminiscing on Tuesday’s broadcast of the popular morning show — broadcast from the iconic Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center where “Saturday Night Live” tapes and regularly lampoons Brzezinksi and co-host Joe Scarborough.

The show began in April 2007 as a replacement for “Imus in the Morning,” which was dropped after host Don Imus made inappropriate comments about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.
The show received national attention early on when Brzezinksi burned a script on air, refusing to lead with a story about Paris Hilton. It’s that kind of spontaneous action and conversation that has kept the show buzzy and popular for so long.
Recently, the show has garnered buzz because of its hosts’ deteriorated relationship with Donald Trump.
This isn’t the first time “Morning Joe” has used the “Saturday Night Live” studio; Brzezinski, Scarborough and company will typically use the space for high-profile political event broadcasts.
During Tuesday’s broadcast, the gang did manage to have some discussion apart from the throwbacks. Check it out in the clip above.
