The program featured congratulations — and a proclamation — from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, President and First Lady Michelle Obama and a cadre of celebrities (Tom Hanks delivered the birthday cake), along with a number of retrospective packages, such as this one:
- Real Cable Host, Fake Anchorman on 'SNL'
- 'Is That The Weirdest Thing You've Ever Heard?'
- NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center Hits 7-Year High in Demo
- NBC News Hires Ben Plesser From CBS
