Today was Today show anchor Meredith Vieira's last day on the program. It was a very solemn occasion where they took time to recall her important moments like dancing with the Rockettes, falling down while ice skating, being attacked by Robin Williams and Russell Brand, polishing Colin Firth's trophy, and interviewing world leaders like Barack Obama and Miss Piggy.
Donald Trump's latest stop on his pretend presidential campaign that's solely designed to boost ratings for The Celebrity Apprentice was an interview with Meredith Vieira on this morning's Today show, where he discussed Barack Obama's birth certificate. He now has his own "investigators" in Hawaii digging around for it, and they "cannot believe what they're finding." That's hilarious. How is that not hilarious? Mitt Romney only wishes he'd thought of this first.
Taping in Rockefeller Center sure is dangerous, and not because of all the annoying tourists. Today while taping in the outdoor plaza, a crazy person hopped the barricade and lunged for hosts Meredith Vieira, Al Roker, and an android known as the Willie Geist 3000. Don't worry, no weathermen were injured in the making of this film.
Glenn Beck appeared on Today this morning to defend his violent rhetoric, telling Meredith Vieira that he was only joking—just like Jon Stewart! Tonight, Stewart tried to make sense of the comparison before inviting Beck on his show.
This morning on Today, the show's anchors took dressing up for this weekend's holiday to the extreme. Superman, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber were among their choices — and Tina Fey and Will Ferrell came dressed as their Megamind characters. But nothing was as, er, surprising as Natalie Morales' Justin Bieber.
Isn't it great when the Today Show slips up? This morning while introducing a segment aptly titled "I Love My Children. I Hate My Life," Meredith called New York magazine's Jennifer Senior a "single mom." That's when things got tense.
This morning, Meredith Vieira interviewed a thirteen year-old girl who is a possible accomplice in a beating that resulted from a text message war. She mentioned some of the language used, including one word not appropriate for television.
