If Today's Al Roker ever steps down from his NBC morning role as America's weatherman, he'll have plenty to keep him occupied.

Monday, Roker was named host of NBC's prime-time Celebrity Family Feud, scheduled to make its debut July 1. His Al Roker Entertainment's docu-reality series DEA (tonight, 11 ET/PT) premiered on Spike TV last week. The second season of Roker's Food Network series Heavyweights launched March 31.

Roker succeeded Willard Scott as Today's weather anchor in 1996. Despite his burgeoning mini-mogul status, two young children and a packed schedule that includes personal appearances and writing books, he isn't leaving Today.
