Executives who reportedly attended the meeting included 'Today' executive producer Jim Bell, NBC News President Steve Capus and senior vice president for marketing and communications Lauren Kapp.

The Duggars Are Expecting Baby Number 20 (VIDEO)

DuggarsNot even the threat of pre-eclampsia or premature birth can slow down Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar in their quest to expand their already huge family: They announced this morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) that they are expecting their 20th child together.

Telling Ann Curry that she's three and a half months pregnant, 45 year-old Michelle said "We're due in April and we're just thrilled!" Ever the joker, Jim Bob quipped "We don't know how it happened!" Michelle added, "We are so excited. I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful." The couple had hinted last night on their blog that they'd be making a "special announcement" this morning, but many assumed it would be about another grandchild.

When Curry asked the question that most of us are thinking -- WHY?! -- Michelle said they live by the motto "There's always room for one more." Plus, as Jim Bob says, one kid just moved out to start his own family so there was space available in Casa Duggar.

Watch the happy couple's announcement after the jump.

Giuliana Rancic shocked Ann Curry when she announced live on Monday's 'Today Show' that she has breast cancer. The next day she underwent a double lumpectomy and had some lymph nodes removed, and her husband Bill spoke to Curry this morning about the surgery and how his wife's doing.

Bill said they're both doing okay, and that Giuliana expects to return to work next week. He also thanked viewers at home on her behalf for all their support: "It's definitely helped Giuliana get through this." The two-hour surgery went well and Giuliana is now recuperating at home.

Bill said that although it was "heartbreaking" to see her have to undergo the surgery, "we're looking at this as a gift" because the cancer was detected in the very early stages. He also said it's helped the couple focus on what's important in life.

The sad, tabloid drama featuring Michaele and Tareq Salahi continues to get more national publicity, for some reason. The couple that came into the public consciousness when they crashed a party at the White House and briefly appeared on 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' is making headlines again after Tareq reported his wife missing only to find out that she'd run away with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

Tareq sat down with Matt Lauer for an emotional, uncomfortable 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) interview. Lauer pressed Salahi about why he didn't see this coming. "You recently went to a Journey concert, went backstage, took video of it," Lauer said. "I considered Neal a best friend ..." Tareq responded, "I'm betrayed in my view, by not just my wife, but also by Neal."

By all accounts, Jane Lynch did a smashing job as the host of Emmys. She kept the show moving, threw out some well-placed zingers and most importantly to her, didn't fall on her face. Lynch stopped by the fourth hour of 'Today' (9AM ET on NBC) and talked about the experience with Kathie Lee and Hoda.

Lynch was nervous, but after she got through the opening musical number without any screw-ups, she settled down and found her comfort zone. "The relief started right after the opening number when I didn't take a face-plant ... And then it was fun, I actually enjoyed myself."

Hoda Lets One Rip About Kathy Lee on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Oct 1st 2010 3:50PM
Hoda and Kathy Lee on 'Today'Sometimes it's hard to tell if you're watching Kathy Lee & Hoda on 'Today' ('Today' Weekdays, 7AM on NBC) or the 'Saturday Night Live' parody with Kristen Wiig. And while Kathy Lee is usually the one coining the notable malapropisms, in this clip, Hoda takes a turn.

What Hoda was trying to say was, in a show where people were performing pieces from musicals Kathy Lee had been involved with, Kathy Lee got up and sang well. She belted one out. She knocked it out of the park. She sang with fire and passion. Hoda had literally dozens of phrases to choose from.

Alas, she did not choose wisely, and went with "let one rip." The audience giggled like school kids, and then Kathy Lee made an unfortunate reference to roughage. Just a nice image to carry with you for the rest of your day.

Why Nike Deserves Kudos For Its Tiger Ad

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 8th 2010 2:08PM
Nike is kind of like the Microsoft of the athletic world; often derided and criticized, but wildly successful for reasons no one wants to acknowledge. For instance, I constantly keep buying Nike basketball shoes, even though I know that they're too narrow for my clodhopper feet, because they just look so damned cool.

One of the things they've been able to do so well is put together compelling advertising. And, after the Tiger Woods mess spilled all over the media landscape, there was likely a large segment of those watchers who were wondering what Woods' largest sponsor would do to address the mess. Would they meet it head on or try to avoid the issue?

Well, the met it head on, and in the best way possible. Here is the new Nike ad with Woods, debuting during last night ahead of the Masters:

Today That Kathie Lee Gifford. She's such a rascal.

You've got to hand it to Hoda Kotb, she's such a great comedy foil for Gifford. On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Gifford told Kotb she set up a profile for her on a dating site called "Cougars & Co." In an effort to get her hooked up with the cub of her dreams, Gifford brought three gents into the studio, telling Kotb she had to pick one to go on a date with.

Yes, it was all a prank, but after seeing these two in action on a daily basis, we wouldn't be surprised if Gifford did something like this for real.

President Obama Talks College Hoops with Matt LauerBarack Obama appeared on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) to talk a little college basketball with Matt Lauer. There, it was revealed that the President had picked none of the Final Four teams correctly.

"How's your bracket look?" Lauer asked Obama. Obama replied, "It is completely blown up ... It is a sign that I was paying singular focus on heath care." "That's your excuse and you're sticking with it?" asked Lauer.

Since Obama's college basketball picks have all lost, Lauer asked the President for his revised choice for the team that will win it all. Obama's choice? West Virginia. Changing your college picks in the middle of the tournament? Is this what was meant by "Change You Can Believe In?"
