It’s like the Curious Incident of the Host in the Morning Time over here. Only instead of dog murderers, it’s friendly faced men with perfect teeth and impeccable prompter-reading skills. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Billy Bush will be joining NBC’s Today show during its 9 a.m. hour, alongside Tamron Hall, Willie Geist, and Al Roker. Seeing as Live With Kelly and Michael is positioned in direct competition with Today’s 9 a.m. slot, there’s obviously no way Billy Bush could possibly secretly be Kelly Ripa’s new Live co-host, unless *rips Billy Bush’s wig off dramatically*… Oh God, sorry Mr. Bush. Yeah, no, looks like that whole situation is still up in the air.
