Meredith Vieira will fill in for Bob Costas in prime time -- VIDEO

Lauer: You’re out. Vieira: You’re in.

The former Today anchor will make history Friday as the first solo woman ever to anchor NBC’s prime time Olympic coverage. She’ll be succeeding Matt Lauer, who first stepped in for ailing colleague Bob Costas earlier this week. (NBC says that though Costas’s eye infection has improved, he’s still “not quite ready to do the show.”)

“It’s so funny — I woke up this morning and I was feeling fine. And now my eyes are killing me,” Vieira joked on NBC’s morning show Friday. “I watched you guys [Lauer and Al Roker] attempt the luge. I think I’m going blind. And I’m really worried because I have to go prime time tonight.”


Highlights of Joy Behar's last show on 'The View' -- VIDEO

After 16 seasons, Joy Behar bid farewell to The View today. The hour-long goodbye episode, taped Thursday, was billed as “This Was Your Life on The View” and was hosted by comic Mario Cantone (Sex and the City). In addition to showing taped messages from stars and choice clips — including Behar buckling Tom Cruise onto the couch, her declining fashion advice from RuPaul, her walking away from Bill O’Reilly, and her getting a foot massage from Matthew McConaughey — producers lined up a slew of surprise in-studio guests.

First up was Regis Philbin, who told the story of how Behar really got on Barbara Walters’ radar. As Behar killed at Milton Berle’s 89th birthday party in 1997, Walters leaned over to Philbin and asked who she was. Former View cohost Meredith Vieira was next, and she described the “faint smell of peppermint and gin” on Behar’s breath when they kissed on the show. Cue the montage of Behar kissing female guests. Then Vieira kissing Behar. Behar kissing Walters. Walters kissing Vieira. Philbin kissing Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd. And Goldberg and Shepherd kissing Behar.

Meredith Vieira will not renew her contract to host ABC’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

A spokesperson from ABC parent Disney confirmed that they have shot all of the shows for this season with Vieira, which will air through the end of May.
