'Today Show' Hosts Pay Tribute to Broadway with Their Halloween Costumes!

The hosts of The Today Show are paying tribute to the musicals of Broadway with their Halloween costumes this year!

The show’s hosts dressed up on Friday (October 30) at their studio at Rockefeller Center in New York City.

Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb went as Elphaba and Glinda from Wicked, Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dryer were Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart from Chicago, Jenna Bush Hager was Grizabella from Cats, and Craig Melvin and Al Roker were Alexander Hamilton and King George III from Hamilton.

Sheinelle and Dylan did a fully choreographed routine to the “Hot Honey Rag” from Chicago while the other stars all lip-synced to songs from their musicals.

Broadway is shut down right now, so this was the perfect way to pay tribute to the shows of the Great White Way while we can’t see them live.

Saturday Night Live is tackling the dueling town halls between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Saturday night’s episode (October 17) kicked off with a cold open playfully poking fun at the town halls, which made headlines for being scheduled at the exact same time amid protests from Hollywood to stagger the airings.

The skit featured viewers flipping back and forth between the two.

“One town hall was a thoughtful, cogent discussion of the issues facing our country. The other featured President Trump,” the announcer said.

Savannah Guthrie, who earned social media praise for taking the President to task, was played by Kate McKinnon, while Jim Carrey played Biden. g>Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump, and Maya Rudolph played Kamala Harris.

One former cast member recently explained why she doesn’t miss being on SNL.

Savannah Guthrie Is Being Praised for Calling Out Trump During Town Hall

Donald Trump refused to participate in a virtual debate with Joe Biden tonight, so there are two Town Hall events with the candidates that are happening at the same time.

Trump‘s Town Hall is being hosted by NBC and Today‘s Savannah Guthrie is moderating the event, though many have commented on how it feels more like a debate between the president and the moderator.

Democrats are praising Savannah for calling out Trump on some of the falsehoods that he has been spewing, including his retweets of conspiracy theories and his thoughts on QAnon.

Savannah has called out Trump for not having a health care plan ready even though his administration is going to court in November to throw out Obamacare, which will get rid of the guarantee for people with pre-existing conditions. She also called him out on not urging Americans to wear a mask and he says he has no problem with mask wearing.

Donald Trump is putting NBC on blast at the same time as Hollywood stars.

“So you know I’m being set up tonight. I’m doing this town hall with Concast, C-O-N, con, cause it’s a con job,” he said, via Deadline.

“It’s NBC, the worst. Home of Sleepy-Eyed Chuck Todd and some others,” he added.

“I figured, what the hell, we get a free hour on television,” he went on to say, while mocking Today anchor and town hall moderator Savannah Guthrie (“she’s always lovely, isn’t she?”), NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt (“he’s a beauty”) and the town hall NBC had with Biden last week.

“It was a joke,” he said.

“Actually, I’d like to watch him, because I’d like to see if he can make it through the program, he continued.

Savannah Guthrie to Undergo Eye Surgery Which Will Hopefully Restore Her Vision

Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie will be taking some time off to have surgery on her eye, months after her three-year-old son Charley threw a toy train at her right eye causing extensive damage.

The initial injury was a “massive tear” in her retina and retina detachment which cause her to have one surgery back in December.

Now, she will have cataract surgery on that same eye to improve her vision.

“It’s been a long time, I’m super excited,” Savannah said on the air. “I feel like it’s Christmas morning because if they remove this cataract I’ll really be able to see, and I’ve had a hard time seeing.”

About her vision today, she said, “It’s kind of distorted and then it’s got a wavy thing, and now I have this cataract, which is a big blurry spot. Once they remove that blur, I think it will be a lot better.”

She will be taking some time off to recover after the surgery, and added, “Hopefully next time I see you I’ll really see you!”

We are wishing Savannah the best as she prepares for her procedure!

Savannah Guthrie Claps Back After Troll Calls Her Hair 'Unkempt'

Savannah Guthrie is defending her on-air look.

The 48-year-old TODAY anchor clapped back at a troll on Twitter after they said her hair was “distracting” during a recent broadcast.

“@SavannahGuthrie Cmon. With what they pay you, can’t you afford a hair stylist? I love the natural unkempt look but its distracting on @NBCNews national news,” the user wrote on Twitter.

Savannah responded to the tweet, writing, “We are all doing our own hair and makeup during the pandemic. And yes it shows!”

For the past few months, Savannah along with tons of other on-air anchors have been reporting from home during the pandemic.

Savannah Guthrie To Film 'Today' From Her Basement Due To A 'Super Mild' Sore Throat

Savannah Guthrie will be reporting from home when you turn on Today this week.

The 48-year-old anchor and attorney will be staying home after coming down with a mild sore throat, and THR reports that NBC News president Noah Oppenheim also released an email to staff telling them to follow her lead if they also presented with any kind of symptoms.

“Well, this will be a first,” Savannah shared on social media. “I’m going to be anchoring Today from my house! In an abundance of caution, and to model the super vigilance the CDC has asked of all of us, I’m staying home because I have a mild sore throat and runny nose.”

She continued, “This was the advice of NBC’s superb medical team and my bosses. I feel good and am sure I will be back in no time — but during these days, it’s on all of us to be extra cautious and caring of those around us. #loveyourneighbor So see you tomorrow on TODAY – from my basement!”

Earlier in the week, Savannah‘s co-workers, Al Roker and Craig Melvin, were also social distancing themselves after one staff member tested positive for coronavirus.
