An Unscripted Moment From Al Roker On ‘Today’

Unscripted TV can lead to some unplanned moments, as we saw on NBC’s “Today” this morning. Al Roker, Matt Lauer and Tamron Hall were interviewing members of the U.S. Olympic rowing team, and at the end they mentioned the tradition of throwing your teammates in the water after a win.

TMZ caught what happened next, with Lauer saying:

“The tradition here in NY is you throw her in the Hudson River.”

That’s when Roker quickly chimed in … “Which is different than OUR tradition … which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story.”

You can see the video at TMZ. NBC edited that comment out in the official video, below.
