Megyn Kelly Does Her Best Shania Twain Impression During Halloween on the Plaza

By A.J. Katz Comment

For a few minutes this morning, many broadcast and cable morning shows moved away from discussing the Robert Mueller investigation, and got into the Halloween spirit.

Matt Lauer, who has made of a habit of dressing up as a woman on Halloween over the years, went the Dolly Parton route today in honor of Today’s 23rd Halloween on the Plaza.


Lauer’s tribute to Parton was part of Today’s country music-themed Halloween, which came roughly one week after Parton joined fellow country legend Kenny Rogers on stage for his retirement concert in Nashville.

Savannah Guthrie dressed up as Rogers, with Al Roker as Willie Nelson, Hoda Kotb as Blake Shelton, Kathie Lee Gifford as Miley Cyrus, Carson Daly as Billy Ray Cyrus, and newcomer Megyn Kelly as Shania Twain.

It was a “super” Halloween at Good Morning America.

The ABC morning show hosts dressed as superheroes today. Disney owns Marvel Entertainment.

Robin Roberts was Wonder Woman, Michael Strahan was Thor, Lara Spencer was Black Widow, George Stephanopoulos was Clark Kent, Amy Robach was Spider Man, Rob Marciano was Lego Batman, and Ginger Zee was Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Vin Diesel, who gave voice to baby Groot in the movie, shared the similarities he saw between Zee and Groot.

“You know, you two have a lot in common,” Diesel told Zee. “You’re a meteorologist and Groot has a tremendous grasp of quasi-dimensional, super-positional engineering. But he also likes to groove, and we know how much you love to dance, Ginger.”

Mark Ruffalo made an appearance on the program as the Incredible Hulk.


Later, Wyclef Jean put on a special Halloween performance.

And as we hinted at last week, the cast of Stranger Things stopped by to promote the second installment of the uber-popular Netflix series. The cast showed off their anchor skills. Maybe at least one of them could develop a career as a TV newser if this whole acting thing doesn’t work out.

CBS This Morning, on the other hand, did not dress up for the holiday. However, CBS’s Norfolk, VA affiliate did. In fact, the morning hosts at WTKR, Erica Greenway, Blaine Stewart, and Jessica Larche, dressed up the CTM trio of Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell and Charlie Rose.


Fox & Friends briefly got into the holiday spirit too, wearing costumes based on idioms.

Ainsley Earhardt was “a blessing in disguise,” wearing a black sweater with “bless you” spelled across it, along with a disguise mask. Earhardt also brought her daughter on set.

Janice Dean was “it’s raining cats and dogs,” wearing a raincoat and holding an umbrella adorned with furry cats and dogs.

Jillian Mele was “a devil’s advocate,” wearing a judge’s robe and red devil horns.

Steve Doocy was “a million bucks,” and wore a money suit.

Brian Kilmeade “you can’t judge a book by its cover,” and wore a costume of his Andrew Jackson book cover.

HLN’s Morning Express With Robin Meade hosts did not wear costumes, but they presented a number of segments dedicated to Halloween.

Neither CNN New Day nor MSNBC’s Morning Joe rocked Halloween costumes.
