During the NBC red carpet show before SNL's big 40th anniversary special, Jim Carrey made everything reaaaally awkward by asking Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, "Where are you hiding Brian Williams?"

"Oh, look at the time," Lauer replied as Tina Fey cringed at Carrey's reference to the suspended NBC Nightly News anchor.

"I just want to say something in his defense," Carrey went on. "If the helicopter in front of me gets hit, I'm taking the story."

And THEN former mayor Rudy Giuliani also made a joke at the anchor's expense, making sure it was known he was giving SNL creator Lorne Michaels credit for the joke he made during SNL's first post-9/11 show.
