From Katie Couric's colonoscopy to Matt Lauer's infamous Tom Cruise interview to Ann Curry's tearful last day, here's a look at the biggest, buzziest, and most memorable moments in TODAY show history
Tom Cruise Calls Matt Lauer "Glib," 2005
Lauer's June 23, 2005 sit-down with Tom Cruise started as a run-of-the-mill plug for the actor's latest movie but eventually evolved into a heated, adversarial debate over antidepressants and psychiatry. Tensions escalated quickly, culminating in a fired-up Cruise calling Lauer "glib" and admonishing him to "be a little more responsible" in his reporting. Lauer has said there was a "Cold War period" after that, but the two made nice in 2008 when Cruise apologized for seeming "arrogant."
