Friday morning on Today two of NBC’s most reliable crash test dummies, Carson Daly and Savanna Guthrie, received botulism injections—LIVE!—for the whole world to watch. The segment was about “what you need to know before going under the knife,” which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, given the fact that Botox…
As part of their continued dominance of exclusives in the “Rachel Dolezal says she is black” story, NBC aired a new interview with Dolezal during the NBC Nightly News on Tuesday evening. During it, Dolezal told Savannah Guthrie that she wasn’t sure she could say authoritatively that she is truly related to her…
Does Rand Paul want to be president, or does he want to teach classes on how to interview? I’m starting to wonder after this morning’s appearance on The Today Show, in which he seemed more concerned with lecturing Savannah Guthrie about “editorializing” than answering questions about his record on foreign policy.
In today's Tweet Beat, Taylor Swift hurt herself while doing a domestic task, Ira Glass is getting in touch with his constituents and Savannah Guthrie is not #cray.

After announcing her engagement in May, host Savannah Guthrie took to the Today show Monday to reveal she'd gotten secretly married over the weekend and is four months pregnant. Whoa!
On Friday's Today show, Matt Lauer interviewed Twitter CEO Dick Costolo. While the conversation skimmed the surface of revealing any actual information – Twitter is so hip and cool!

Even when you have the most laissez-faire, No Curfew, "You're-Going-To-Drink-So-Drink-In-The-House-Here's-Some-Patron" liberal Hollywood parents ever, you still want to fly the parental coop. Case in point: For Jaden Smith's 15th birthday this July, he asked Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith if they'd sign the papers…
After working at NBC for 22 years, one day last month, Ann Curry entered the building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and couldn't find her employee badge. Remarkably, this was a problem.
There's trouble brewing at NBC's Today show: With a mix of news, human interest and silliness, Matt Lauer and his cohorts used to be America's number one choice each morning. Now Today has dropped in popularity and ABC's Good Morning America sits on top. What happened? Well, a lot. A lot happened.
Last night, the 11th annual Heart Truth Red Dress fashion show kicked off New York Fashion Week.

This morning on the Today show, Kristen Stewart was promoting the final Twilight movie when she was thrown a personal (and perhaps predictable) question: "Are you back together with Robert Pattinson?" She looked at the floor as she purred, "Funny you mention that." And then:
Jessica Biel is apparently shit-flippingly threatened by the continued close relationship between exes Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz. She wasn't too psyched when they worked together in Bad Teacher, and recently Diaz did an interview in which this happened:
