America's favorite weatherman is signing off!

No, we're not talking about Al Roker, but his predecessor Willard Scott — who will retire on Tuesday after 35 years on the Today show and 65 years on NBC!

The 81-year-old's retirement was announced by Matt Lauer on Friday's show.

Scott handed off weather reporting duties to Roker in the 1990s, but stayed on the air for his renowned segment celebrating viewers' 100th birthdays with Smuckers' jelly!

But that's not all Scott is known for — he also played Ronald McDonald in the McDonald's commercials back in the 1960s!

Roker paid tribute to his predecessor, saying:

Al Roker isn't playing!

On November 21, Al posted a series of tweets recounting his awful experience with a New York City taxi.

Apparently, a taxi driver passed by Roker and his 13-year-old son only to pick up a white man a block away. Considering there was no reasonable explanation for the cabbie to make this decision, the weatherman came to the sad conclusion that the incident was motivated by race.

Ugh. Are we really living in 2015?! So awful if this was the case!

Take a look at A.R.'s tweets (below)!

Today marks the first day of the Kentucky Derby and this trio looks ready!

Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir joined Al Roker on the Today show on Friday to flaunt their special looks for the two-day event!

And since the Olympic duo are helping NBC cover the race, they made sure their Derby ensems were flawless.

Tara sported a white lace dress with deep red accents like her belt and chic pumps. Meanwhile, Johnny went for the gold with his gilded accented blazer, chambray top, skinnies, and black boots.

Even Al was looking quite handsome and fresh in his tan suit and plaid shirt! But can you believe he was the only one to remember his hat??

They’re the most important pieces at the Kentucky Derby! We can only hope Tara and Johnny are planning to wow with them later.

Matt Lauer Pokes Fun At Bob Costas' Pink Eyes On The Today Show! Was His Joke Fair Or Foul??

Filed under: TV NewsSilly!HealthOlympicsFunny

matt lauer teases bob costas for pink eye

Ouch! That joke's gotta burn worse than a horrible eye infection!

Bob Costas and his pink eyes made their way to the Today show where he sat down with Matt Lauer to talk about the Sochi Olympics, and with the games quickly wrapping up, the two began discussing travel plans!

Well Matty saw the perfect opportunity to throw a little jab at his fellow anchor when he asked:

"Are you taking the red eye home?"

HA! Get it?? Because Bob's eyes are red! And that's what they call late-night flights!! Well, at least Al Roker seemed to think it was funny…

Costas was a good sport about the whole thing and laughed it off, although his infection clearly isn't gone since he chose to wear sunglasses to cover up his peepers!

Get better soon, Bobby!

Ch-ch-check out the anchor-on-anchor throwdown …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Most & Least Liked Morning Show Hosts! New Survey Proves Which Faces YOU Enjoy Waking Up With!

Filed under: TV NewsPhotos!Carson DalyGIFs

wake up san francisco

Waaaaaake up!

Let’s face it: Danny Tanner & Rebecca Donaldson were HANDS DOWN the best morning show hosts ever!

Too bad they were only on in San Francisco. Annnd were fictional characters on a TV show.

The real early risers on television though just got their reports cards, and their grades prove who viewers like and who viewers find more annoying than an alarm clock!

Q scores are used in the industry to determine a celebrity’s likability. The higher the number, the more people like you!

Tom Hanks is pretty much always on top. He’s like…the Tom Hanks of Q scores.

Oh wait…

Anyway, this year Tommy achieved a friggin’ 50 Q score! Insanely high! The average celebrity score is a 15!

But what we find most fascinating about this new data is how the morning show crews stacked up against each another!

10 years ago, it was NBC and the Today Show that were CRUSHING the competition from 7am to 11am.

Al Roker Goes OFF On NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio For Screwing Up Post Snowstorm! Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity FeudsPolitikNew York

Oh it’s going DOWN in New York City, y’all! And we’re not talking about snowfall!

Al Roker was one angry weatherman this morning live on the Today show, with his sights set directly at Mayor Bill de Blasio!

The sitch in the Big Apple right now is that there’s snow EVERYWHERE! So why aren’t there enough plows out to clean it all up?

Apparently the new mayor blamed the city’s late response on the storm not being forecasted correctly!

Roker was NOT okay with those claims because according to him, NBC and the Today show predicted the storm’s timeline PERFECTLY!

Al chewed de Blasio out, saying:

"They claimed it caught them off guard, that it came in early. No, no, no, it didn't! They should have been watching us!”

Al then compared Bill to former NYC mayor John Lindsay, who never escaped his legacy of not properly responding to a 1969 nor’easter which left 14 dead and 68 injured throughout the city!

Woah… Way harsh, Rokes!

Ch-ch-check out the video of Al Roker putting Mayor de Blasio on blast above!
