TV News Halloween Costumes: Who Wore It Best?

The morning shows went all out for their Halloween episodes this morning, dressing up as everything from classic TV characters to 21-year-old pop stars.

This is the 20th Halloween celebration for NBC’s “Today” show and we have seen the cast dress up in some elaborate costumes over the years. NBC went with another example of cross promotion, having the “Today” anchors dress up various “Saturday Night Live” characters.

Willie Geist and Tamron Hall did their best impersonations of Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri, dressing up as the Spartan Cheerleaders. Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb dressed at Wayne and Garth from “Wayne’s World.”

As for Matt Lauer, who usually uses the occasion to dress in drag, we can’t be certain… as he dressed as the legendary gender-challenged “Pat.” Savannah Guthrie, Jenna Bush Hager and Meredith Vieira gave new meaning to the term “Mom Jeans,” although Vieira looked a little too comfortable recreating the “SNL” digital short.

Cooperate synergy was also in full effect on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” with its anchors dressed as celebrities vying for a spot on “Dancing With the Stars.” Robin Roberts dressed as the “Frozen” character Elsa, who was joined by her pal Olaf played by ABC’s T.J. Holmes. Read more

One Bumpy Flight for Fox News’ Maria Molina

Fox News meteorologist Maria Molina had one bumpy flight with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels: so bumpy, she passed out.

“You back with me now?” the flight instructor asked after Molina’s head slammed the side of the F/A-18 Hornet. “Yea, I passed out,” she told him.

Recounting the experience on “Fox and Friends,” Molina revealed her other response to the flight.

“At least you didn’t throw up,” co-host Steve Doocy said to her. “Yea, three times,” she admits. “We just didn’t show it in the package.”


Morning Shows Wear Red For Women’s Heart Health

Anchors and correspondents across the morning shows wore red on the air today for National Wear Red Day, which raises awareness for women’s heart health.

Among those participating: ABC’s Robin Roberts, Ginger Zee, Lara Spencer, George Stephanopoulos and Josh Elliott; NBC’s Natalie Morales, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Jenna Bush Hager; CBS’ Gayle King, Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell; Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Heather Nauert and Maria Molina; CNN’s Kate Bolduan and Chris Cuomo; CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin and Sara Eisen; Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepard and Jenny McCarthy of “The View” and Kelly Ripa of “Live.”

Super Bowl Boulevard Festivities in Full Swing

lara spencer ginger zee tobogganWith just a few days to go until the Seattle Seahawks face the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium, the Super Bowl festivities are in full swing in Times Square. One of the attractions on Super Bowl Boulevard, which runs right past the “Good Morning America” studios, is a 60-foot toboggan run, which Lara Spencer and Ginger Zee raced down on the show this morning (video after the jump).

Zee and Spencer were out there a little earlier than CNN’s Andy Scholes and Christine Romans, who arranged to meet at the toboggan after “Early Start” this morning. But they may have overlapped with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade and Maria Molina, who also participated in a toboggan race thismorning on “Fox & Friends.”

With three days to go until the Super Bowl on Fox, “Shepard Smith Reporting” and “Hannity” will both broadcast from Super Bowl Boulevard today. “The O’Reilly Factor” was scheduled to broadcast from Times Square, but will now originate from his Fox studio.

At the top of his show today, Smith introduced viewers to Super Bowl Boulevard: “I don’t know. The Weather Channel tries to name storms, I guess Fox Sports can name a street of they want to,” he joked.  Watch here.

The Hits and Misses of On Air Kisses

Mike Tobin‘s deflected double kiss on the streets of Boston the other night reminded the “Fox & Friends” crew of another full-on lip lock (at least it looked that way) on the set of the morning show a couple years ago. Gretchen Carlson, Steve Doocy and Maria Molina talked about it on the “After the Show Show.” Johnny Dollar has the video.
