Remember yesterday, when we related Matt Lauer’s bizarre confessional about over-flooding the NBC toilets, and ruining a perfectly good pair of penny-loafers, belonging to then-stranger (now esteemed colleague) Tom Brokaw? Well, look at how far Matty’s come along since then!

“The departures of Katie Couric and Charles Gibson for evening anchor jobs last year left” Matt Lauer “as the king of morning television,” the AP’s David Bauder writes. “Although the transition to a new “Today” hasn’t been flawless, Lauer has assumed his role with quiet authority and skill. No one really comes close.”

And it’s exactly that sort of “quiet authority and skill” that prompted Matt to wax nostalgic about the days when he soiled the floor of the men’s lavatory! Meanwhile, when asked for his reflections on Gibson and Couric’s decisions to leave morning television, an impish Lauer shrugged and replied, “When you gotta go, you gotta go.”
