Meredith Vieira’s Final ‘Today:’ The Write-ups

TV news writers are summing up Meredith Vieria‘s final “Today” show this morning. The highlight had to be the phenomenal live multi-camera, dancing, singing, rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” which brought out the entire “Today” crew.

USA Today:

It was a “blubberfest” on the Today show this morning (Hoda Kotb’s words, not ours) as the team celebrated Meredith Vieira’s last day.

Associated Press:

The broadcast made room for news about the nation’s severe-heat advisories and scandal-ridden Congressman Anthony Weiner’s Twitter woes. But throughout the show, tributes and highlight reels honored Vieira’s “Today” tenure.

NY Daily News:

The only surprise after all the “I love you guys” moments was that the 9-10 a.m. hour didn’t show them all sitting around a campfire in Rockefeller Plaza, having a pajama party and toasting s’mores. But if the tribute went over the top, it was mostly in a good way, and a couple of small things about the show underscored why, in this case, it worked.

Ann Curry takes over as Matt Lauer‘s co-anchor tomorrow. Our interview with Curry, tomorrow morning on TVNewser.
