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.

  • too much mouth

    cannot stand is over other hosts and has nothing of any value to add to any usually end up turning today show off because I just can't stand her non stop really like Natalie, Al and Willy an think its a shame they hardly get a chance to talk because of her
  • The "Tamron Show" must go!!

    Tamron Hall's conceit and attempted dominance of the Today show is disgusting! She is as fake and obnoxious an individual as a TV can hold. How can NBC place her in the spot with so many qualified and exceptional people just waiting i the wings? Listen to your viewers most possibly past

  • if i could i would give it a ZERO

    TODAY if you want to vomit watch NBC

    this infotainment crap has strayed so far from the actual news it cannot be categorized as a news program.

  • Calamity at its best

    I have watched the today show forever now 40 yes! Have to say the mix of cast is staggeringly out of hand. Matt, looks wimpy and scared for his job, Natalie looks like she's taking over Savannah's job, Hall us too silly and overbearing all. Then there's Kathy Lee, whose always got a sarcastic opinion about everything. Good Grief! Looks like scenes from Seinfeld! Come on! Let's be news. If I want comedians I'll watch them at late night. Updates are late! I'm outta heremoreless
  • you unpatriotic, insensitive JERKS!

    How could you possibly cover Quote Together We Make Football? How could you possibly cover quote Cumberbund Goes Gangster? Where did you get your brains? We can tell you have no heart! I slipped between your show and Fox. You scarcely mentioned 911 and Fox covered it completely. I'm embarrassed to have you on the airwaves in the United States of America! I will not watch your network again!
