One thing noticeably absent from the morning show on the network covering the 2008 Olympics — a live bug.
NBC’s Today show aired a two-hour Beijing broadcast this morning that was pre-taped (we hear last night). At 9amET, the show moved to a live show from New York, with Natalie Morales and Al Roker anchoring.
The only mentions of the Opening Ceremony during the broadcast this morning described the event as occurring, “tonight.”
