Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

matt lauer extends contract

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:

George W. Bush's Self-Portrait Captures His Boyish Charm & Not Much Else!! See The Prez's Paintings HERE!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitikGIFs

george w bush paintings today show portraits putin dad landscapes crazy

It's time for today's pop quiz:

What do Adolph Hitler, George Zimmerman, and former President George W. Bush have in common?

If you said, "each enjoys painting!" then you are RIGHT!!!

(Other acceptable answers include "each has a Y-chromosome" and "none of them stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.")

It's true, though - former president GWB is technically an artist!!!

We know this because he flaunted his impressive array of paint-colored canvases in front of Matt Lauer on Friday's Today show!

Curious to see his take on V-lad Putin? The Dalai Lama? The skull of a Texas longhorn?

Ch-ch-check out the rest of his exhibit, The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Dottie Sandusky Goes On TV To Defend Husband & Convicted Child Molester Jerry Sandusky — You HAVE To Hear What She Says!

jerry sandusky dottie today show wife matt lauer interview defends husband

This HAS to be denial, it just has to be!

We can think of no other logical explanation why Dottie Sandusky would go on TV, for a 50 minute Today special, and defend her CONVICTED husband. Especially when she makes it seem like he's the victim. That's just a slap in the face to all the actual, molested, victims out there.

Actually, the more we think about it… we understand that she's probably a victim too. People do seemingly crazy things under duress, and she's probably under a lot of it from a man she married and loved for almost 40 years before finding out his dark secret.

Assuming she really didn't know about it, that is. So Matt Lauer sat across from Dottie as she defended her husband.

She said:

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.

He's baaaaaaaack!!!

After coming down with a nasty case of pink eye, Bob Costas had to take a couple nights off to rest as Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira temporarily took over his Sochi Olympic coverage duties!!

Well, it appears he and his eyes are feeling much better as he's back to his rightful spot in front of the camera! (Despite the fact that his eyes still look infected, albeit, a little less, we guess…)

The NBC reporter returned after taking six days off and began the broadcast by jokingly saying he was filling in for Matt and Meredith, however, he also admitted that

It’s another horrible day for Bob Costas and his pus-spewing eyes.

But it’s a GREAT day for female television announcers!

History will be made later tonight when Meredith Vieira will become the FIRST woman to ever anchor NBC’s Olympic primetime coverage!

Hell to the ye-yah!

Mer just crashed through that glass ceiling like a bobsled crashing into a Sochi maintenance worker!

Vieira will replace Matt Lauer, who has been filling in for Costas while he recuperates from a double-eye infection.

This week marked the end of Bob’s 157 appearances streak as host of the Peacock’s primetime coverage of the Games! Costas has been hosting the Olympics for the network since 1988!

Meredith called into the Today show this morning to express her excitement to have this groundbreaking opportunity. She told her former colleagues:
