Geist ER

A dinner party at Savannah Guthrie‘s home over the weekend turned bloody for Willie Geist.

Geist split open his finger while trying to open a bottle of Bourbon.

“They come in, he is holding his hand, a big towel,” Guthrie sai this morning on “Today.” “Blood… it’s a gusher, and they say, ‘girls we’re going to urgent care.’” Geist and his family were visiting Guthrie, her husband Mike Feldman and their new baby. Willie ended up getting seven stitches. “It’s a long story…there were some problems with the wax,” Geist said.

Savannah Guthrie and Baby Vale Make Surprise ‘Today’ Visit

New mother Savannah Guthrie brought a surprise guest to “Today” this morning.

Walking in with her seven-week old daughter Vale, the morning show’s co-hosts swarmed Guthrie, husband Mike Feldman, and the well-tempered infant. After a whole lot of fawning over baby Vale, Guthrie passed the baby over to co-host Matt Lauer. “She may be pooping,” he said. Later, Lauer interviewed Guthrie on her first weeks of motherhood.

9/11 Coverage, 13 Years Later

The news networks have been providing live coverage of the 13th anniversary of the the 9/11 attacks.

The commemoration began at 8:45amET this morning with a moment of silence to mark the moment the attack began. NBC’s Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw, sitting in for Savannah Guthrie on “Today,” anchored an NBC News special report. “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos anchored a special report during “GMA” and “CBS This Morning” brought in NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton and former CBS News correspondent, John Miller, who is now Bratton’s aide at the NYPD, for their coverage.

As it has for the last 12 years, MSNBC is running NBC News programming, anchored by Matt Lauer, Katie Couric and Tom Brokaw, as it happened on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. Interspersed with news of the day, CNN and Fox News have been marking that morning with remembrances and marked moments — when the first two planes hit the two World Trade Center towers, when the third hit the Pentagon, when the South Tower fell, when the fourth plane crashed into a field in Shanksville, PA, and finally, when the North Tower collapsed at 10:28amET.

Chuck Todd‘s farewell to MSNBC wasn’t seen on MSNBC. The end of “The Daily Rundown” was pre-empted this morning by remarks from British Prime Minister David Cameron. But Todd recorded it anyway (after the jump). In it he talked about how TDR came to be: “It was a show that MSNBC president Phil Griffin, Savannah Guthrie and I conceived over lunch in Washington one day.” Todd thanked Griffin for not “micromanaging us. He let us be the driving force. Not a lot of executives do that.”

Earlier in the show — and this did make it on TV — Todd was surprised first by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest and then by his former co-host Savannah Guthrie, who Skyped in from maternity leave.

Katie Couric Won’t Be Guest Hosting ‘Today’

Couric TodayThe New York Post says Katie Couric won’t be returning to “Today” after all during Savannah Guthrie‘s maternity leave.

We hear NBC offered one-day stints to Couric and other special guests, including Jane Pauley and Barbara Walters. But Couric turned it down, saying she wouldn’t accept a one-day role. Well-placed NBC sources say Couric insisted on a longer relationship of up to two weeks. One insider said, “Katie wanted a longer stint on ‘Today’ to help promote her Yahoo role. But it wasn’t what NBC had in mind, and they refused.”

Couric demurred when we asked her at Barbara Walters‘ going away party if a “Today” fill-in was in the cards. Couric appeared on the show last month, to talk about the upcoming Stand up to Cancer event, as well as her wedding. Couric, who co-hosted “Today” for 15 years, famously had a fill-in stint on rival “Good Morning America” in April 2012, when the two programs were neck and neck among morning show viewers.

Savannah Guthrie: ‘I Feel Like Life Just Started’

Calling in to the “Today” show this morning to describe her first two days of motherhood, Savannah Guthrie said she feels “like life just started.” The “Today” show anchor and her husband named their first child Vale, which means “valley by a stream.”

“‘Today’ viewers had totally convinced me we were having a boy. So I think I really was shocked when they said, ‘it’s a girl.’ We looked at each other, and we had a few names on the girl list, but we had not really settled on it at all,” Guthrie said. “So all afternoon we were just trying to think of names. Vale had always been on our list of the names we liked, so we just kind of went for it.” Watch:
