The Today Show Presents: Mor Misérables
Morning ray of sunshine/fourth-hour afterthought Kathie Lee Gifford is writing an 18-minute-long Broadway-style musical that she’ll perform live on the Today Show, along with various Today Show co-hosts. Presumably the storyline for “Not Today and Tomorrow’s Not Looking Good Either” will parody life in the morning news biz.
As easy as it is to mock Kathie Lee (and fun too!), HNTP is going to live up to its name for once and applaud her and the Today Show’s producers for this gambit. It’s a ballsy, interesting move, and it’s sure to produce laughs one way or the other, whether with or at. YouTube hits are guaranteed.
There’s no date set for the live production, but it’s supposed to happen before the end of the year.
