Laura, durn: First Lady to guest-host Today show for an hour

Laura Bush, no stranger to Jay Leno's Tonight Show couch, will co-host Today on April 22nd with "America's First Family," as NBC so modestly puts it.

The First Lady, joined in part by her daughter, Jenna, is scheduled to be on hand during the entire 9 a.m. hour, says the Peacock. She'll supposedly "learn the ins and outs of hosting a morning" show while participating "in several segments and interviews."

Mrs. Bush also will take incumbent co-host Ann Curry on a tour of the family ranch in Crawford and plug the children's book, Read All About It!, she co-wrote with Jenna.

NBC had another odd coupling earlier this season when Nightly News anchor Brian Williams hosted the last new edition of Saturday Night Live before the writers' strike knocked the show off the air for several months.
