Today (also called The Today Show) is an American news and talk morning television show that airs on NBC. The program debuted on January 14, 1952. It was the first of its genre on American television and in the world, and is the fifth-longest-running American television series. Originally a two-hour program on weekdays, it expanded to Sundays (a one-hour program) in 1987 and Saturdays (running for two hours) in 1992. Today is known as America’s favorite morning show, bringing you the latest headlines and expert tips on money, health and parenting.
The Today Show's fun and exciting vibe is filled with a rare combination of audience interaction and news broadcasting. The fact that the show has lasted over 50 years is no surprise due to its diverse large audience. The show's location brings tourists from all over the world. The audience members hold banners and signs in the hopes of showing up on camera, to shout out family or friends from afar. Current hosts will often go up to audience members and ask them where they are from. Celebrities and musical guests will also take photos, sign autographs and talk to the audience as an added bonus.
