Today Show meteorologist Al Roker has seemingly had enough of his co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin. During Friday morning’s broadcast, Savannah and Craig broke out into song and encouraged Al to join in but he wasn’t having any of it. In fact, the long-time meteorologist glared at the other hosts of the morning show. What had Al Roker so upset? Keep reading to find out.
Tension Among Today Show Co-Hosts
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Al Roker has thrown shade at his co-hosts, specifically Craig Melvin. Al, Craig, Sheinelle Jones, and Dylan Dreyer led a segment in August discussing their personal summer highlights.
As the segment started, the co-hosts were eating pizza and chatting. Craig suggested they mix things up and start with Sheinelle. However, she replied to correct him and stated that the prompter indicated Dylan was to speak first. When Craig seemed to push, Al spoke up and mentioned that they had graphics lined up and prepared for the segment.
“Have you just started this show?” Al asked, dissing Craig on live television. To which Craig replied that he thought it would be “whimsical.” Roker wasn’t impressed.
That theme has seemed to continue into the new season of Today. The latest episode featured a rather uncomfortable moment between Al and his co-hosts.
Why Was Al Roker Uncomfortable On Friday’s Show?
Friday, September 23 had a segment on the late Whitney Houston. This is because the movie The Bodyguard is set to return to theaters for the 30th anniversary of its release. Of course, the clip played on Today included Houston’s infamous song I Will Always Love You. The return of the movie to theaters comes just one month before Houston’s very own biopic premieres.
During the segment, Savannah and Craig seemed to be having a good time. She asked Craig if he could sing I’m Every Woman, another one of Whitney Houston’s greatest hits. The pair carried on singing for a few moments until Craig got a look at Al’s face.
Al Roker looked at the camera with a serious expression and glared at his co-hosts. Craig looked nervous, asking, “No?” He received no response and Al did not participate in the conversation about The Bodyguard or Whitney Houston.
