While a sex scandal brews at rival CBS over a certain late-night host, NBC has some skeletons in this closet that the network seems to be voluntarily exposing on its own.
Jay Leno on Tuesday night added a brief post-script to a Today
show segment earlier in the day about mentoring. As a result, a shocking secret about Meredith Vieira's early career came to light, prompting a sharp observation on Wednesday's Today
show from her cohort Al Roker that even seemed to shock the good-natured Vieira and the always-stoic Ann Curry.
A good way to start the day with a smile, gang.
