Today fans confused as three key hosts are absent from the desk following a string of no-shows among entire panel

Today fans confused as three key hosts are absent from the desk following a string of no-shows among entire panel

TODAY viewers have been left confused after three key hosts of the show were nowhere to be seen on Friday.

Al Roker, Craig Melvin, and Carson Daly were all noticeably absent from the NBC programme, as just women hosted the show ahead of the weekend.

Usual hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb opened the show and were joined by Third Hour host Sheinelle Jones instead of Craig.

Meteorologist Dylan Dreyer did the weather on Friday instead of Al, and then all four women sat together on the sofa as Sheinelle presented Carson’s usual slot POPStart.

“So, we’re starting with the National Toy Hall of Fame,” she told her colleagues as they inspected some of the toys on the table.

And during a more serious topic on the show, the ladies invited Anne Thompson into the studio to talk about mindfulness.

Sheinelle began the segment and said: “”We’re back with an issues that faces as many as 40 million Americans, symptoms of anxiety disorders.”

Savannah then added: “When it comes to treatment, antidepressants and therapy have long been the solution but there is encouraging news on another option.

“After a first of its kind clinical trial compared the generic version of an antidepressant and the practice of mindfulness.”

As they handed the conversation over to their guest Anne, she explained how the trial was carried out.

Explaining that those suffering from anxiety will have to put the time in to practice mindfulness, Hoda admitted: “There is meditation that doesn’t take as long as that, and once you learn it, it’s free.

“I recently started meditating and I actually didn’t think I could do it.

“And then you find yourself with a lot of like clarity, and especially on our jobs when you have to be up at the crack of dawn, if you do it before…

“I feel strangely clear when I come in here now, as opposed to before,” Hoda added.

Savannah then joked: “The rest of us just blur on in!” before asking Anne: “But it is true, once you do it and practice, you get better at it right?”

When Anne mentioned studies that have proven people who meditate for an average of 20 years actually increase the gray matter in their brain, Dylan was heard saying: “Wow! Sounds way better than drugs!”


Friday wasn’t the first day this week that Dylan has filled in for one of the usual hosts.

On Thursday’s show, she took Al’s place during the POPStart segment.

She also sat in for Al during the third hour of TODAY, where she was joined by Sheinelle and Craig.

Al has not been on the show for the whole week and none of the co-hosts have given a reason as to why he is out.

Earlier this month, he participated in the Start Today Walking Challenge, which encourages people to walk or run three miles in six weeks.

He had to go to Orlando, FL, for the challenge, and may still be there.

However, fans do not know because the TODAY meteorologist has been very quiet on social media.


Fans have began to show concern for Al as no answer has been provided on his whereabouts.

“@TODAYshow where’s @alroker? He’s the best person on the whole show,” tweeted one fan.

“Hey @TheTodayShow, where is the #68th Sexiest Man In The World @alroker?” asked another.

Al was recently featured in the newest issue of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, as the Sexiest Television Host Alive.
