Jenna Bush Hager Debuts As ‘Today’ Co-Host: Smiles, Tears & Maybe Some First-Day Jitters

  • Deadline
Let’s go, y’all! Jenna Bush Hager made her permanent co-hosting debut on NBC’s Today this morning, and if her choreographed kickoff with Hoda Kotb didn’t come off exactly as planned, the rookie seemed to take it in stride.

“We’ve been trying to figure out what our little pregame is gonna be,” Kotb said early on during Episode 1 of Today with Hoda & Jenna. “I think we figured it out just now in the makeup room two seconds ago.”

When Bush Hager asked her co-host if she remembered it, Kotb said, “Yeah.” Only problem was, the newbie maybe didn’t. After they counted to three to deliver the new opening simultaneously, the first word came out right, but Bush Hager stopped as Kotb said enthusiastically, “Let go, y’all!”

“I thought it was, ‘Let’s do this, y’all?’ ” Bush Hager said, looking a little embarrassed.

Grab that Martini shaker and start shaking. The Bad Moms are coming back. Sort of. A third installment of the popular comedy franchise was officially announced at CinemaCon, and it will be titled Bad Moms' Moms.

It is unclear if the original Bad Moms cast lineup of Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn will return. There is no mention of them in this initial report out of CinemaCon from earlier today.

Kelly Clarkson, Pitbull Embrace Imperfection With ‘UglyDolls’
Kelly Clarkson and Pitbull both signed on to “UglyDolls” for the same reason: the film’s endearing message about what it means to be different.

The two artists took the stage during Stx Films’ presentation at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition trade show taking place in Las Vegas. “UglyDolls,” the studio’s first foray into animation, takes place in the town of Uglyville, where colorful sock puppets yearn for the day they meet their perfect human match. The band of dolls, led by Clarkson’s Moxy, gets intimidated after soon discovering Perfection, a town with more conventionally appealing dolls (think Barbie).

“UglyDolls” highlights the importance of acceptance, an especially timely message given the culture surrounding social media.

“These days, you have to take the perfect picture, you have to look a certain way. It’s all about followers and likes instead of leaders and being unique,” said Pitbull, who noted his character,

CinemaCon 2019 Preview: ‘Rocketman,’ ‘Pikachu,’ and Disney Selling Unity After Fox Layoffs

CinemaCon, the annual convention for theatrical exhibitors and the studios that feed them, is also something of a marketing meatgrinder. Across four days in Las Vegas, Hollywood’s biggest studios trot out two-hour presentations of first-look footage, fresh trailers, and plenty of very excited stars. Beyond the shiny surfaces, however, CinemaCon also offers a raft of powerful insights, including exactly which films studios believe in enough to hype in a dizzy conventions setting. This year, however, there are fewer studios to make the pitch.

Disney will make its first presentation since acquiring Fox, while Sony opted to sit out altogether. Warner Bros., Universal, and Paramount will all be on deck to show off their upcoming slates, and mini-majors like Lionsgate and Stx Entertainment will also occupy prime presentation slots.
