‘Today Show’ Rivalry Continues

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The hosts of NBC’s Today Show have an explosive little rivalry amongst themselves.

According to Today sports analyst Tiki Barber, fellow co-hosts Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer may be jealous of his yearly hosting gig for NBC’s Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular, airing Saturday (Jul. 4).

That’s because while he’s sitting pretty hosting the summer program, Vieira and Lauer are stuck hosting the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the fall.

Barber says the weather in New York is warmer for his special and the workload is much more lax.

His show only lasts about an hour and a full 27 minutes of it is nothing but fireworks.

Barber doesn’t even have to talk during the fireworks or give a play-by-play like Vieira and Lauer do with the Thanksgiving floats.

Best of all, he gets to sit back, relax, and leave when it’s over, unlike his co-hosts who must endure the entire four-hour-long Thanksgiving Parade.
