Diane Sawyer

Drunk, Tired or Flustered?

11/7/2012 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Diane Sawyer
was the toast of ABC last night. The question -- was she toasted?

A wacky Sawyer, slurring her words and rambling on about nothing, spoke haltingly as she tried to navigate the election returns.

Lots of viewers turned off their TV sets wondering if Sawyer was anchoring with a .12 blood alcohol level -- i.e., she seemed really drunk.

One thing's for sure ... Something very different was going on with her as she clumsily threw to reporters in the field.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.

drunk implies imbibing alcohol.... i highly doubt she was drunk... maybe prescription pills (they're from a doctor so no one considers them as "dangerous drugs" even though they are), or maybe just crashing after a caffeine high with little to no sleep.... maybe she's excited for obama, who knows.... i don't think she was drinking but she was a little off....

she's been a professional way before most TMZ viewers were born, so I don't think she was drunk, she was non stop talking since 7:00 am..what I noticed was the somber atmosphere with ABC when it was announced Obama won. I'm quite certain there was not an open bar during a live show.

For goodness sakes, it was a long day. You sit in one chair from morning till after midnight and see how you feel. She exhausted. You people are so low class. Get is real life yourself. She's 66 years old. What are you doing?

shes been all over diabetes, I believe she just might be diabetic and with the long coverage she may not have gotten the carbs she needed or the protein to sustain those carbs. I have seen it before and lived it to an extent myself.

If she doesn't have a sudden onset of a brain tumor then she was drunk as a skunk! The FCC also says it is illegal to go on the air drunk so perhaps they should be checking into that.
