Canoodling is the act of kissing and cuddling, it is not slang for chatting.  The anchor in this video doesn't fully understand this, and he politely asks the weather girl if they can canoodle before she goes into her report.  Her reaction lends to the idea that this was not the first time that the anchor had asked her to canoodle.

Here is what Free Beer and Hot Wings had to say about this awkward cross chat.

Do you get the feeling that he's the repulsive guy in the office who thinks he's hot because he's the anchor... and asks all the chicks out because he knows one one of them is going to say yes?  And, all the new girls are warned not to go out with roofie mcdate rape. - Free Beer
