Good Afternoon America starts today at 2 p.m. ET. The clip above offers a sneak peek of what to expect. The show replaces a failed daytime talk show called The Revolution, which we’d never even heard of. Hosts are Lara Spencer and Josh Elliot.

Meanwhile, over on the Today show, Savannah Guthrie made her official debut as co-anchor. We’ve got her opening moments in the video below and TVNewser has additional footage of her first day.
