This past Friday, as a part of what I can only assume was some attempt at cross promotion, the cast of NBC's Today celebrated an early Halloween dressed as the Peanuts. The result was perhaps the most inexplicably horrifying moment of live television since the Challenger disaster in 1986. LINK:
  1. Meredith Vieira
    D21e54b5 da79 4025 a74c db3e013093c2
    Meredith isn't even on Today anymore. Why put her through this, hasn't she been through enough? If co-hosting a morning show with Matt Lauer for 5 years wasn't enough punishment for a lifetime, NBC covers her in dirt and and fake hippo ears.
  2. Kathie Lee Gifford

    This really is the stuff of nightmares. Can Kathie Lee even breathe? I hope she can breathe? Is this paint toxic?
  3. Al Roker

    One on hand, I applaud the colorblind casting of Charlie Brown. On the other hand, it looks like someone melted Al Roker.
  4. Carson Daly

    Carson Daly is still on television.
  5. The fact that this went through weeks of pitching, meetings, planning and rehearsal and at no point did an executive producer think that this might not be the best idea for a Halloween show
    This must've taken a lot of effort and time from (presumably) smart people. Yet still, this came across so poorly executed. From the dancing, to the sound issues, to the stepping over of lines, to the seething contempt that half of the hosts fail to keep internal, this was an irrefutable mess.
