Matt Lauer is not “feuding” with Al Roker, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively shoot down this fake news story. We know from personal experience, as well as from numerous sources at NBC, that this is not true. The claim comes from RadarOnline, which has published a number of inaccurate stories about “Today” […] »

Morning TV viewers have yet to become accustomed to the sight of Megyn Kelly on their screens, but they certainly recognize NBC’s long-running “Today.” To sell Madison Avenue on her soon-to-launch new morning show, NBC is packaging the new anchor inside the familiar A.M. concept.
NBC has already indicated that Kelly’s program will be considered part of the overall “Today” franchise – and is using that to soothe marketers who might fret over supporting an unproven entry in the schedule. “It won’t be like ‘Today’ show ends at 8:59, Megyn Kelly’s new talk show starts at 9 and then ‘Today’ with Kathy Lee and Hoda starts at 10,” says one media buyer familiar with negotiations around Kelly’s new show. “She will be in a very protected spot” that nods to NBC’s bigger morning architecture, this buyer said.
Kelly’s program is part of an ambitious effort by NBC to shake up its morning »

Prince William is now formally known as the Duke of Cambridge, but before his mother, Princess Diana, tragically passed away in August 1997, he was known as "wombat" (well, at least to her, anyway). In a 2007 interview with NBC's Matt Lauer, the prince revealed that "wombat" was Diana's nickname for him when he was a kid. "It kind of stuck with me. I can't get rid of it now," he said. "It began when I was 2. I've been rightfully told because I can't remember back that far. But we went to Australia with our parents, and the wombat, you know, that's the local animal . . . So I just basically got called that. Not because I look like a wombat - or maybe I do." While we still can't decide whether we prefer Diana or Kate Middleton's nickname for William more - they're both really sweet. »

Happy anniversary, Savannah!
On Friday morning, the Today show celebrated co-anchor Savannah Guthrie’s five year anniversary or her “Savannahversary,” as they called it. The show prepared a special video montage, looking back at Guthrie's most memorable moments on air.
Fellow co-anchors Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford, Carson Daly and Jenna Bush Hager expressed their respect and affection for her and celebrated in-studio with Savannah’s favorite milkshakes and cake.
“You make it look way too easy,” gushed co-anchor Matt Lauer.
“I walk into this building and I can’t believe that it’s me,” Guthrie, 45, said. “And they call this work? No way. This is the joy of a lifetime.”
Jenna Bush Hager wrote a touching personal essay on Today.com revealing why her friend, co-worker, and next-door neighbor is so special.

Cheers to another five years, Savannah Guthrie! On Friday, Carson Daly, Dylan Dreyer, Willie Geist, Kathie Lee Gifford, Jenna Bush Hager, Sheinelle Jones, Hoda Kotb, Matt Lauer and Al Roker celebrated her five-year anniversary on NBC's Today. "It's flown by!" she said. "Five years and everything has changed—for the better!" That's an understatement. In half a decade, Guthrie has proven she can interview anyone from Johnny Depp to President Donald Trump. Viewers loved seeing her fangirl over her favorite people in pop culture, like Duran Duran and Pope Francis. And, off-camera, she got married and welcomed two children. Today celebrated Guthrie's many »

Ed Sheeran nearly shut down New York City during his performance at Rockefeller Plaza on Thursday morning.
The 26-year-old pop star put on a mini-concert on the Today show, and according to police who spoke with the NBC morning program, 12,000 fans came out to see him sing, making this one of the largest shows held on the plaza, behind Lady Gaga, who drew a crowd of 20,000 in July 2010.

Fear not, Sheerios — Ed Sheeran hasn’t disappeared from social media completely.
Following his interview with The Sun where the 26-year-old singer stated that he “can’t read” Twitter anymore due to the negativity, fans feared that Sheeran quit the platform completely. However, he clarified with an interview on Today that it’s not the case.
“They made so much of a big deal out of this,” he explained. “I got asked in an interview if I read negative things and I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t even go on Twitter anymore.’ It’s not like I quit it. »

Charlie Sheen is once again being sued by a woman who claims the actor lied about being HIV-positive and exposed her to the virus during unprotected sex.
Sheen is not officially named as the defendant in the lawsuit, but the plaintiff alleges the defendant gave a nationally-televised interview on November 17, 2015 to announce he was HIV-positive — which is the exact day Sheen made his announcement in an interview on the Today show.
The lawsuit also claims the defendant gave a second interview on June 21, 2016 — which is the date Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer for a second interview.
According to the lawsuit, »

It’s been 12 years since Tom Cruise lectured Matt Lauer about antidepressants and psychiatry during a now-infamous interview. To commemorate that notorious interaction, Andy Cohen, host of “What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” recreated the cringe-worthy scene with Lauer as the lead of Cruise.
Before recreating the scene for Clubhouse Playhouse, Lauer emphasized, “I like Tom Cruise. We have a good relationship. We have a good friendship. It was just one little moment, okay?”
Lauer wore a Tom Cruise wig and Cohen acted as the “Today” host as they took turns reading lines from the interview in front of a green screen: “Matt, Matt, Matt…you’re blig. That’s the opposite of glib,” Lauer faintly whispered.
“And scene!” Cohen shouted as he ran off the green screen. Savannah Guthrie, also guest starring on the show, applauded Cohen and Lauer for their performance.
Lauer mentioned again that Cruise was a close pal. “We »

Andy Cohen had Today anchors Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night, and he was eager to ask Lauer to re-create his famous awkward interview with Tom Cruise about psychiatry.
"I've been looking forward to this all week," said Cohen, joking that Lauer was part of the "glib-eral" media, a reference to the "glib" insult Cruise flung at Lauer in 2005.
Before he put on his Cruise wig to impersonate the actor, Lauer said he wanted to clarify that he and Cruise are now on good terms. "I like Tom Cruise. We have a good »

The Today show stars got pretty candid about each other this week. On the NBC program Thursday, several of them shared their first impressions of each other, pegged to a game Zendaya uses to break the ice while getting to know her co-stars. "We had a rough start," veteran co-host Matt Lauer said, gesturing towards weather anchor Al Roker, who like him, joined the Today show in the '90s. "We did," Roker said. "We had a rough start and it's amazing we are dear friends now," Lauer said. "Long story short, we're on the air one time on local television years ago.
