Matt Lauer's birthday: Meredith Viera, Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel celebrate

30 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Today" celebrated some very special moments on Dec. 30. First up, the show celebrated Matt Lauer's 56th birthday with a couple special guests.

Former co-anchor Meredith Viera (who's birthday is also on Dec. 30) called in to the morning show to wish Lauer a happy birthday. Savannah Guthrie, currently on vacation, also left a message for her costar, while Al Roker presented Lauer (via Carson Daly) with a Just For Men kit for the birthday boy's beard.

But the birthday wasn't the only special occasion on "Today." Bryant Gumbel and Jane Pauley helped co-anchor the show while Guthrie and Natalie Morales are off. Coincidentally, Pauley's twins Ross and Rickie also were born on Dec. 30, so they made their TV debut presenting Lauer with his cake.

Is this one of your favorite ways Lauer celebrated his birthday on "Today"? »

Skylar Astin Joins “Glee” and “Revenge” Casts Conrad and Victoria’s Exes

12 December 2013 4:44 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


The Today Show has apologized for a segment about the imposter sign language interpreter at the Nelson Mandela memorial. While discussing the incident, a producer appeared miming his own fake sign language but was quickly shut down by hosts Natalie Morales and Al Roker.

TVLine reports that Guy Pearce will play a love interest for Sean Hayes‘ character on Sean Saves the World.

Guy Pearce. Sigh.

Julie Chen threw some shade in the direction of The View during an interview with Howard Stern and a follow-up interview with Extra. “The show has lost its way is my feeling because they don’t really talk about politics anymore and when they do, no one is really trying to hear what Jenny (McCarthy) is saying.” Every time I’ve tried to watch The View this season, the show has just been a mess. The compelling moments happen by accident.

Ariana Grande Wows At ‘Christmas In Rockefeller Center’

4 December 2013 5:20 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Say what you will about Katniss, but we think that Ariana Grande is the real girl on fire. Ariana rocked Rockefeller Center during the famous tree lighting ceremony on Dec. 4, performing one of her hit songs and a classic Christmas hit!

Ariana Grande, 20, is owning it this holiday season. First “The Way” singer dazzled the frozen Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade crowd with her rendition of “Last Christmas,” then she stunned at the Jingle Ball in Dallas on Dec. 2. But we think her performance at the 81st annual Rockefeller tree lighting was her best outing yet!

Ariana Grande’s Performance At ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’

Ariana looked absolutely stunning as she braved the cold at New York’s Rockefeller Center, performing her hit “Love is Everything” and the holiday classic “Last Christmas.” She showed off her amazing voice, and of course stunning look. She rocked an adorable green cape with red tights! »

Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony Draws Big Stars

3 December 2013 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center in NYC is almost upon us; the television special will air Wednesday, Dec. 4 on NBC.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree arrived at 30 Rock in mid November, where it will remain until Jan. 7. The tree measures at least 65 feet in height with a 35-feet diameter and is traditionally a Norway Spruce. Trees are donated every year to the Rockefeller Center to be decorated and displayed as a massive holiday season tourist attraction.

Once the holiday season is over, the tree will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, a tradition that began in 2007 when the lumber was used to rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The lumber from the tree will then be used to help build a home for those in need.

“We are thrilled that lumber for the tree will once again be used to build homes with Habitat partner families…During »

Alex Kingston is set to reprise her role as Dinah Lance on The CW’s Arrow, TVLine has learned — but will it be for the purpose of a most unexpected family reunion?

Kingston first appeared on the superhero drama during late Season 1, when Dinah returned to Starling City to make amends with her daughter Laurel and husband Quentin as well as posit the theory that their other daughter, Sara, was in fact alive. At the time, that was just shoddily sourced crazy talk, but now… well, we’ll »

'Today' gives a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade sneak peek - watch

25 November 2013 8:21 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

If you're anything like us, one of the highlights of Thanksgiving (in addition to food and football) is the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. "Today" is here Monday (Nov. 25) with a sneak peek.

Anchor Tamron Hall "volunteers" to strap on a "balloon head" in the "Today Show" plaza, turning her into a giant, inflatable pilgrim. She looks ... nervous, hahaha. And then she tries to walk, which is a bit of a challenge.

Meanwhile, anchor Natalie Morales gets the easy job -- she's atop a giant rocking horse that is the oldest element in the entire parade. It's been around for 60 years, wow. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade kicks off at 9 a.m. Et on CBS and 10 a.m. Et on NBC Thursday, Nov. 25. »

25 November 2013 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Picking up a little while after things left off back in 2011, Rio 2 will see the return of Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg as leading Macaws, Jewel and Blu.

The original film netted almost half a billion dollars for Blue Sky Studios two years ago, and the sequel will be the first for them outside of their hugely successful Ice Age franchise, cementing their status as one of the leading animation houses in the industry.

The first full-length trailer landed early last month, and now Fox and Blue Sky Studios have launched a new teaser poster, with Blu and Jewel taking centre stage, looking appropriately parental, about to venture into the Amazon with their three children.

The entire cast of the animated smash Rio returns in Rio 2, and they are joined by a new flock of top actors and musical talents. Rich with grandeur, character, color and music, Rio 2 »

Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey will light up 'Christmas in Rockefeller Center'

19 November 2013 8:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande are among the performers scheduled for NBC's "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" special on Dec. 4.

Toni Braxton, Kelly Clarkson, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, the Goo Goo Dolls and Jewel will also appear on the special, the network tells Zap2it.

Even after all of her concerts and nine Grammy Awards, Blige says she still gets stage fright, particularly before an event like this.

This performance will be live, she says. And singing popular Christmas songs, which everyone knows, just increases the anxiety.

"Because especially with Christmas songs and national anthems, everyone in the world knows these songs," Blige says. "And you just want to get them right; not mess up the words to the national anthem. And you don't want to overdo or over sing a Christmas song that everyone knows."

Blige's 11th album, "A Mary Christmas," dropped last month. As of mid-November, she »

‘Gma’ Vs. ‘Today’: Which Show Had The Sexier Halloween Costumes?

31 October 2013 8:53 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Good Morning America’ and the ‘Today Show’ both had amazing costume themes for Halloween — but which show’s costumes were sexier, HollywoodLifers? Click to see more pics and vote!

It was a star-studded Halloween show for both Gma and Today, since both casts had a celebrity costume theme! Each show had hilarious and provocative outfits — especially since Matt Lauer sported fake breasts in a sexy costume and Lara Spencer was scandalously dressed as Miley Cyrus – on a wrecking ball! Read on for all the details.

‘Today Show’ Hosts Dress Like Iconic Characters From ’80s TV Shows For Halloween

Today‘s theme was classic ’80s TV show characters, and they really ran wild with it!

Nothing was funnier than Matt’s turn as Pamela Anderson in Baywatch, wearing her famous, skimpy red bathing suit — complete with fake breasts, a blonde wig and makeup!

Matt Lauer is Pamela Anderson as 'Today' does 'Baywatch,' 'Laverne & Shirley' and more for Halloween

31 October 2013 7:16 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

The "Today" cast may have outdone themselves for Halloween 2013. They put together costumes for various classic TV characters and it's pretty amazing.

Below, Matt Lauer and Willie Geist are joined by Carmen Electra for a "Baywatch" tableau, Al Roker is Mr. T from "The A Team," Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie are an adorable "Laverne & Shirley," Carson Daly does "CHiPS" with actual star Erik Estrada, and Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford are Wilma and Betty from "The Flintstones."

We think "Today" is an early favorite for best talk show costumes this Halloween, though Ellen DeGeneres is hilarious dressed as Nicki Minaj.

What do you think?

Update: There are now GIFs of Matt Lauer's slow-motion Pamela Anderson run. Outstanding.

With October in full swing and Halloween fast approaching, there's never been a better time to embrace the spooky spirit of the season, and a marketing company behind the upcoming remake of Carrie did just that.
