Today fans point out 'awkward tension' on live show after claims Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie are feuding | The SunJuly 12, 2022
TODAY show fans have noticed some “awkward” tension during the live show on Tuesday.
This comes as claims are being made about hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie feuding behind the scenes.
Savannah and Hoda reunited on the morning show on Monday, after quite a bit of time apart.
The former was off on vacation last week, while Hoda was off the week before.
After reports of the pair having issues with one another started circulating, fans have been extra curious to see how the duo would interact once both were back to work.
Now, seeing Hoda and Savannah back on Today together, as well as seeing them with the rest of their co-hosts, viewers pointed out that there appears to be some tension.

While they usually all break off into smaller groups to report from the anchor desk, all the TV personalities came together to sit on two small couches for the pop culture news aspect of the show.
Fans said they all seemed very uneasy during this group segment.
“Y’all all look uncomfortably awkward on the couch,” one viewer said.
They added that only Hoda seemed to be able to look natural and calm.
Another agreed, saying that they “hate the couch” and thinks it should be gotten rid of.

A third blasted Savannah during this segment, writing: “Why is Savannah Guthrie always such a ‘ball hog’ when it comes to attention when the group is on the couch?
“She had to consume time and attention away from Carson [Daly]’s PopStart for her cushion issues? Really?”
The Sun exclusively revealed last month that co-hosts Hoda and Savannah reportedly are feuding behind the scenes.
A source close to production on the Today Show told The Sun that despite their sunny dispositions on-screen, Savannah and Hoda secretly "can't stand each other."
The insider said: "Savannah is the boss. After Matt Lauer was ousted, Savannah grabbed power, and she really wanted Willy Geist in Hoda's role, but his ratings were just not up to par for the network."
"Hoda out maneuvered Savannah and got the spot."
Beyond that, the source added that Savannah "thinks of herself as a real news person," while Hoda is seen as "the lightweight that drank wine with Kathy Lee Gifford."
"Savannah was the White House correspondent before getting the host job, which also explains her love for Jenna since her father was president."
While Jenna is Hoda's co-host, the insider said she plays both sides between the women.
"Jenna and Savannah are the best of friends, and they ice Hoda out.
"Jenna landed the best job on TV with zero experience- no one works people better than Jenna.
"She’s a master at playing the game," the insider added.
Hoda and Savannah made history as the first pair of women to co-anchor the Today show after decades on the air.
During a celebration for the show at The Paley Center last month, Savannah – who shared duties with former Today show anchor Matt Lauer prior to the 64-year-old's firing – spoke about Hoda coming in.
She shaed: "All I know was in that moment, it felt like I could drown if Hoda hadn’t reached down and grabbed my hand.
