Everything you need to know about Vieira's first day, in two minutes
WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS THAT DAMN "IT'S A NEW DAY!" SONG THEY'VE BEEN PLAYING IN PROMOS.
You see Meredith being introduced by Matt Lauer, you see her high-fiving the crowd outside, you see her flub one of her lines and get laughed at by Matt and the crew. There's even a giant banner welcoming her to the show. I think the banner reads "Katie Who?" The part where she throws her hat up in the air like Mary Tyler Moore is cool though.
Oh, and you get to see the new set too. My God, what is going on there? The couch set...it doesn't look like the set for a national network morning program, it looks like the set for Wake Up Sacramento or something. Or maybe one of those Lifetime shows where women sit around and talk about relationships and tampons.
