Reeve was on to talk about how pharmacies are using drones to deliver prescriptions to patients, but the chatter on social media quickly turned to his fashion faux pas.
Twitter account Room Rater, which has been rating the at-home setups of reporters and celebrity guests video conferencing into news programs, gave him a 7/10 score for the shot -- adding, "Nice room. Nice shorts."
Reeve shared the post, pointing out his embarrassment over the situation:
"I will not be getting hired as a camera operator any time soon," he joked. "Man the more I look at this the more thigh I see. Yikes. We're our own camera operators these days when we broadcast from home."
