There are so many things that go into the live “Today” show broadcast every single day, and the team at NBC decided to make a musical to show viewers exactly what happens. Earlier today (December 29), Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Matt Lauer, Al Roker and the rest of the cast and crew sang and danced their way through a 14-minute production that was written by Gifford herself.
And as a special added bonus, Kathie Lee’s former on-air partner Regis Philbin came out of retirement to make a thrilling guest appearance.
Each year they pull out all the stops with hilarious Halloween ensembles and this morning (October 31) the “Today” show hosts and crew dressed up as their favorite characters from “Saturday Night Live.”
Matt Lauer went the asexual route and put on a “Pat” outfit while Al Roker and Lester Holt teamed up as The Blues Brothers.
Reaching out to an audience that is in bed before his late night talk show airs, Jimmy Fallon joined Savannah Guthrie on a visit to St. Jude's Children's hospital as part of the "Today" show's Thanks & Giving series.
After doing his best celebrity impressions and dancing to Rihanna songs, the affable host donned a chicken suit and strapped on a guitar to perform for the littlest cancer patients.
Ratings wars are fierce between network morning shows, and the “Today” hosts pulled out all the stops with their Halloween costume selections.
Matt Lauer donned a red swimsuit for his Pamela Anderson “Baywatch” impersonation with Carmen Electra and a David Hasselhoff-dressed Willie Geist, while Carson Daly teamed up with legendary actor Erik Estrada for some “Chips” action.
