Craig was less sure, however, asking, “We’re the nonsense people?”
Shenille then pointed the finger at Al and jokingly blamed him, “It’s your fault,” but Al gloated at the veiled insult, retorting, “Thank you. I’m wearing it. I’m very happy. We’re the bullshit!”
The anchors were on the moon
Dylan, who had been on maternity leave for a few months, only returned to the show last week, but it was to a warm welcome from all of her co-hosts.
Savannah Guthrie included shots of herself and Dylan catching up backstage, as well as an emotional of the two locked in a tight embrace.
“She’s back!!!!! So happy to have @dylandreyernbc back home with us,” she captioned her post, with Dylan sweetly replying, “I missed you!!!”

Sheinelle also shared a photo of them together alongside the post, “Guess who’s back tomorrow from maternity leave?! The gang is back together! See you soon! @todayshow @dylandreyernbc.”
Before his first day back, Dylan wrote an emotional message on Instagram revealing that while she was looking forward to getting back to work, she would understandably miss being with her kids too.
She wrote: “Maternity leave is such a blessing and I’m so enjoying the 16 weeks I’ve been able to spend at home with my boys (although some would say that’s not enough…okay!! ) As I prepare to return to work in a week, I am baffled by how much time has passed. Looking back, however, I realize… we squeezed A LOT!!”
