Matt Lauer has just inked a deal that will keep him on the Today show for another two years…at least!
With only a couple months left on his contract, Matt told NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke, News Group chairman Pat Fili-Krushel, and NBC News president Deborah Turness last week that he wanted to stay, according to sources.
Negotiations finalized on Thursday night, and there were hugs and applause galore on the Today show set Friday morning.
This news means that Matt will be going into his 20th year on the show, which Matt is thrilled over:

If it ain't broke, why try and fix it?
Brit Brit was back in court this morning to review her father Jamie's conservatorship over her personal and financial matters, and Judge Reva Goetz has decided to have it continue for the time being.
The pop star and her father both met with the judge separately in closed chambers to discuss the matter, and Goetz reveals:
"I met with him (Jamie) and her (Britney) separately. I had a very nice conversation with her. Mr. Ingham (Britney's attorney) was present."
Another hearing has been set for October 14th.
Inneresting! That seems like a pretty short amount of time!
We wonder what they're looking to accomplish then!

Larry King's corpse will be detached from his seat on Larry King Live a little later than anticipated, because new host Piers Morgan is having difficulty getting his work visa!
Since Morgan is a British citizen, he needs a special visa that allows him to work full-time in another country, and to get your hands on one is apparently not an easy feat!
Because of this, King may be holding down the fort until late October, early November, although CNN maintains that "no date has been announced yet, there's nothing specific at this point."
Can't somebody extradite the process? If they can get effing Lindsanity LOLhan a new passport in a timely manner because she
ruined her old one doing lines of adderall off of it lost her old one, we think a full-time work visa for a legitimate human being shouldn't be too much of a hassle!
