Not to be outdone by colleague Kathie Lee's same-sex flirtation, Today show host Matt Lauer invited NBC newsman Brian Williams on to cohost this morning. Chemistry and sexual-dynamism as palpable as Kathie's hatred for Hoda.

The boys made blue balls jokes and gently, playfully ribbed each other. Ever the hawk-eyed observer, weatherman Al Roker picked up on the tension, all the way from Miami Beach. So he called the scene in New York "a Whitman's Sampler of man candy" and then had the studio play "It's Raining Men."

Just a reminder: The Today show is on for four hours every morning and is the most popular show of its kind.
