Show Summary

Welcome to The Today Show guide, on January 14 1952 "Today" began it's journey as TV's longest running morning news program on NBC, went on the air. It aired at 7:00 A.M. (Eastern Time) as a 2-hour news and information show. For many years it was a 2-hour program from 7:00 to 9:00 ET, until NBC expanded it to 3 hours (7-10 A.M. Eastern Time) on October 2, 2000. On September 10, 2007 a fourth hour was added to the show.

Today was the first of its genre when it first signed on with host Dave Garroway. The show successfully blends national news headlines, in-depth interviews with newsmakers, lifestyle features, other light news and gimmicks (including the presence of the chimpanzee J. Fred Muggs as the show's mascot during the early years), and local news updates. It has spawned several other shows of a similar type, including ABC's Good Morning America, CBS's The Early Show, and the Canadian series, Canada AM. The show is filmed and produced at studio 1A in Rockefeller Center, New York, just across the street from NBC headquarters at the GE Building. The studio is located right next to the street and many times the hosts do the weather or other events from outside. Today was the brainchild of Pat Weaver, who was then vice-president of NBC. Later, he became president of the company from 1953 to 1955, and then served as chairman of the board for another year. The show is currently hosted by Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. Al Roker does weather updates and Natalie Morales reads news headlines. Popular former weathercaster Willard Scott still appears on the show daily doing the 100th birthday announcements he first became famous for in the 1980s.

  • Think about what you say before you say what you think..

    Just want to ask that the anchors on the Today Show use caution when using victimization within a violent or abusive relationship as a tool for relating to others. I'm not sure that the possible freedom one may experience from a sex change would be an appropriate parallel to the possible freedom one may experience when no longer in an abusive/ violent relationship.

    NBC you have now become Today's infomercial show. Don't know who's producing, but GMA got you beat by a long shot. You're losing me.

    To Tamron's credit, I have not heard any racism from her or Al -really! If anything, I've heard her and him downplaying these kind of topics. However, she needs to stop trying to be the Olivia Pope in the Guise; house. She WANTs Willie, but tries to play it off, but she does get her subtle hints and remarks in surrounding him . mentioning he text her over the weekend while he was out with his kids}. Yea, Willie was flirting right back, maybe until Christina caught wind. Now he tries hard to ignore Tamron, but now she made these snide comments to him. Shame on Tamron on the personal shoe bit he made for Tamron and she went out of her way to read the inside and show off the shoe to the point of interrupting others with the deal of the day segment. Sistah' Girl; class is earned not a self righteous entitlement. I remember Tamron from WFLD Fox 32 Chicago days and it showed how she behaved there. Tamron is a bright, smart woman who dummy down for attention (primarily men). Stop acting thirsty boo! Take note: a classy woman doesn't make comments about her dates, she lets one assume (although it clearly shows ur not). A classy woman doesn't wear thigh high -revealing clothes, especially in front of her married male constituents, she's modest. A classy women does not straddle the seat of a chair portraying a playboy pose on TV news show, she exuberate class in her wearing and doing. -although it does appear Tamron does read these comments based upon her corrective measures on tv. She get my ratings, but only to see how she flashes herself both physically and mentally-not a compliment. Tighten it up girlfriend . Men are good readers;, perhaps this is why she's still single. Very disappointing to view her on YOUTUBE covering a PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN2008? braless and appear to enjoy the male host comments about it- not respectable at all. Last, Tamron's skin tone has changed drastically. Case and point, ethnically speaking, legs are darker than the face not the opposite because the face is more exposed to light/sun. I've been watching her skin transformation I feel sad for her -love the skin you in Tam you might find yourr NIGHT in shining armor. Tamron needs to take note from Shienelle -embrace her and not feel a bit intimidated when she's around (it shows). #Nope no hater here, just keeping it real.moreless
  • Today Show has become a Narcissistic Reality Show with constant Talk overs and interruptions

    1.0
    Please bring back Professionals that care about the audience, coworkers and their job vs being Narcissistic and Opinionated



    When did the focus come off the news and guests? It is now allll about the anchors?!?



    The Book Emotional IQ and Dumbing Down of America seems to be Today Show "Mission Statement"



    Interviews are no longer interviews on Today. They are now opportunities for combative and hostile hosts to editorialize and badger guests while promoting Hosts politics, agenda, opinions, likes and dislikes



    Most of the segments seem to try to compete with Entertainment Tonight, E channel shows and Tabloids and gossip





    Perhaps NBC should give Tamron her own show(with her name on everything and everywhere) Imagine how giddy and silly she would be to hear that offer! She is pretending to have Tamron Hall Show anyway





    Psst NBC! Guess "What is trending"? Viewers dislike of Unprofessional and inappropriate behaviors by current cohost. Viewers are annoying by the new format that focuses more on hosts, their likes and their personal opinionS about Politics and EVERYTHING else.





    It is excruciating to hear hosts give their personal opinions about EVERYTHING and interrupt EVERYONE



    I do not believe Tamron or Al are capable of NOT making each news story and segment about them. It is instantaneous. They immediately twist the news or interview to something about THEM!





    They make racist comments. WHY is this tolerated or allowed?!?

    They taunt and mock their cohorts and audience even about off camera talk. WHY is that allowed?





    The hosts talk so much that they almost always have to cut short the actual interview! The cooking segments are ridiculous now.



    The guests body language is also ignored when the situations are awkward due to co hosts being unprofessional and rude.



    I along with many others cringe, have to mute, power off or turn the channel when Al and Tamron make rude, Racist and inappropriate comments. Al thinks he is funny and plays his double standard card daily to veil his comments as 'humor'



    No one really wants to see Tamron be an immature, self obsessed and giddy 'girl' who interrupts and talks over guests and co hosts. Tamron acts very immature. She makes faces, squeals, snickers, snorts and acts as if she is at Slumber party or at Recess. I can imagine how frustrating she was in Classrooms.



    It is cringe worthy!



    Al and Tamron are the epitome of attention seekers/know it alls who think they can say and do anything and get away with it





    This results in making a once great show that was the start of many peoples day into a head shaking and eye rolling routine



    The show is no longer appropriate for children to watch or listen to as there is so much sexual content and other content that is so inappropriate and confusing to children





    When did the focus come off the news and guests? It is now all about the anchors?!?



    If not for Today, Al would certainly be an Elementary School janitor trying to make little children laugh



    Tamron would be be making weird faces and laughing inappropriately at the pick up window when someone asked her where are the napkins or straws. After that she would try working at a Party supply store where she would turn attention on herself, try on items and say "look at me" instead of helping customers.



    You are over paid to read tele promoters with News and interview. You should not be paid to insult guests/co anchors and give your political and personal opinions!



    If not for Today, what else are you qualified to do and at what salary?!?



    Please bring back Professionals that care about the audience, coworkers and their job vs being Narcissistic and Opinionated

  • A little professionalism please

    2.0
    I am at the point with this show that it is almost hope the Network is listening! It's uncomfortable to watch. Al makes weird remarks (ie: yesterday when he told Mel B he was imagining her jumping on a . Today when they were talking about dating or not dating men who drive certain cars. Tamron starting sounding snippy with Natalie, Al got sarcastic with is NOT a show where I want to hear their opinions and scraps with each other. I get enough of that at home with my children! My take on everyone: Natalie is a snob, Tamron is a spoiled brat, Al is a narcissist. The only one who is normal is Willie. I'm not one to write reviews or complain but it is at that guys need to switch it up. HOw about giving Kathie Lee and Hoda more are fantastic!moreless
