Brian Williams Co-Hosts "Today" Show, Roker Declares: "It's Raining Men!"

Brian Williams filled in for Meredith Vieira on the "Today" show Friday morning, which led to many jokes among the anchors.

Matt Lauer opened the show by describing Williams as "a man who doesn't know the meaning of the word alarm clock," and teased Williams for asking what time the show started.

"That's a Whitman sampler of man candy!" Al Roker joked upon seeing Lauer and Williams in the same shot.

"You are now further into a broadcast than you have been in a long time," Lauer said to Williams after passing the 30-minute threshold. "You holding up? You OK?"

"I only do the half hours usually, but thanks for getting me over that half hour hump," Williams responded. "I've got my water here, I'm good....I feel like I'm getting you off to school!"

Watch this highlights reel put together by the "Today" show, which ends with Roker's declaration that the new theme of the "Today" show is "It's Raining Men," below:
