Talk about burning the midnight oil! Not only do Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker have to get up super early to be ready for TODAY each morning, but Wednesday night they were up super late to spend time with Andy Cohen on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live!" — and no surprise, the results were hilarious.
Here are three great highlights, and bear in mind: Cohen's show can get a little racier than TODAY, so watch out for some light swearing.
1. Al Explains the Not-So-Big Blizzard of 2015
As we all know, in New York City at least, the feet of snow that had been called for never really materialized in the storm that hit earlier this week. But as Roker noted, "If it had happened with two feet of snow and we didn’t tell people, you’d be really ticked as Mastodons were on your front lawn." Point taken!
2. Has TODAY ever “jumped the shark”?
With 63 years on the air, the answer is probably both “yes!” and “no way!” Guthrie admitted she's had her own "jump the shark" moment when she dressed up for a segment as the Julia Roberts character from "Pretty Woman." But, as Roker noted, "You’re on for four hours a day ... you’re gong to have high points and low points, but I think we’ve had a lot more high points than low points ... That’s the best thing, is that we’ve got another show to do [the next day]."
3. Musical tastes vary wildly around the set
A caller to "WWHL's" aftershow asked Guthrie what the silliest disagreement she's ever had with Matt Lauer was, and she 'fessed up: "We have a disagreement every day about music. We like to play music in the mornings just before the show, and he likes some really lame music. Well, it’s not lame, it’s just like not peppy or exciting, it’s like old man music. He likes the song ‘He Stopped Lovin’ Her Today’ by George Jones. … But then I play this like angry woman music."
"You literally want to put your head in a doorjamb," said Roker. "The good part is when it’s over."
