It was a “special split edition of Today” this morning, according to Meredith Vieira, who anchored from London.
Well according to the NBC release sent yesterday: “On Monday, June 1 on “Today,” Meredith Vieira will talk exclusively to Susan Boyle live from London about her second place finish on Britain’s Got Talent.”
Needless to say that interview didn’t happen, as Boyle, who placed second despite being favored to win, checked into a mental health clinic last night. Instead, Vieira interviewed judge Piers Morgan during the 7am hour, and sat down with the show’s winners, the dance group Diversity, in the 8am hour.
Meanwhile on CBS, another of the show’s judges, Amanda Holden, co-hosted The Early Show this morning. Click continued to see her discuss Boyle’s condition. Holden also yodeled.
