When the TODAY anchors are away — our set-builders play!

Staffers remodeled the Studio 1A exterior while TODAY was in London, adding what Matt Lauer called a "monstrous" new LED display screen facing Rockefeller Center. 

But Matt may be secretly loving the new look.

"You know what's good about this screen? That big picture of yourself you've been wanting to hang — it's going to look great there," Savannah joked about Matt.

What else changed? "They also remodeled the hot tub in your dressing room," Matt said to Savannah. 

TODAY.com will investigate that claim a bit later, bathing suits and towels in hand.

Watch the unveil below:
