Richard Wilkins was caught with his pants down on the Today show on Thursday.
The 67-year-old entertainment reporter was called out by Rod Stewart for not wearing any trousers during their Zoom interview.
‘Well, I have to tell the [viewers]. I’m looking at Richard and he has got a pair of shorts on and you’re only seeing the top half of him,’ the British singer, 76, said.

‘Come on, Richard. Show the viewers your shorts,’ he added.
Richard then stood up to reveal he was in fact wearing a pair of floral shorts, as the Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? star burst into laughter.
It comes after Rod spoke about his first marriage in a new interview with People.
He revealed his marriage in 1979 to wife Alana failed because he had ‘too much living, partying, drinking and shagging to do’.
Busted! ‘Well, I have to tell the [viewers]. I’m looking at Richard and he has got a pair of shorts on and you’re only seeing the top half of him,’ Rod said
The iconic musician, 76, explained his father had warned him that he was too young  to tie the knot.
Upon reflection, Rod admitted his father was right, noting that ‘even though he thought he was ready, he wasn’t’.
‘When I told my dad I was getting married, he said, ”You’re far too young.” He was right. I still had a lot of living, partying, drinking and sh**ging to do,’ he said.

Rod and Alana’s marriage lasted six years. Rod wed for a second time when he was 45, exchanging vows with model Rachel Hunter in 1990.
Rod and Rachel’s marriage lasted nine years, and he said of their time together: ‘When I got married a second time to Rachel, I really thought she was the one — but I got that wrong.’
Rod met his current wife – and love of his life – Penny Lancaster just days after he and Rachel called it quits and they have been happily married since 2006.
