500 Weeks Of ‘Today’ In 1st Place: Katie, Matt, Al & Ann Say Thanks

By Brian 

NBC has been looking forward to this press release for a long time:

“President Clinton was in his first term, OJ Simpson was found not-guilty, America was watching Forrest Gump in the movies and discovering the Internet at home. It’s been nearly ten years, an extraordinary 500 weeks, since ‘Today’ began it run as America’s number-one morning news show.” NBC says “Katie, Matt, Al and Ann want to thank the hundreds of ‘Today’ staffers and millions of viewers who have kept the show in first place for nearly a decade.”

> “500 weeks, 2,500 days, over 6,000 hours, one team,” the press release says.
