Default Rum 101 on the Today Show

The Today Show is planning to have a short Rum 101 segment to air in early May, but of course this is subject to change.

Is the Today show running a series of specials on different types of liquors? Or will it only be rum?

They did Tequila 101 Dec 29 last year. The timing seems curious to me, but I don't make the schedule. From what I've heard they are planning to do other spirits in the future.

I've been told the plan is to broadcast Rum 101 on May 3 in the last half hour. But schedules change so it may be the following day or it may not be aired for some time. Any number of things could delay the broadcast.

Here's to hoping it airs today. I have the VCR recording it right now...I haven't used my VCR to record anything in 4 years!

The Rum 101 segment got delayed until Matt Lauer gets back from his world tour. So it will air some time next month. The producer says he will let me know. At least it hasn't been cancelled.

June 28th is being rumored as a the date Rum 101 is going to air. I won't hold my breath but I'm optimistic that it will be seen in the last half hour. If you miss it live, it will be on MSNBC.com

I just got confirmation from the producer of the segment that it will air in the last half hour of Thursday's Today Show. June 28th. But if something newsworthy, such as Paris Hilton getting out of jail, it could be delayed.

Well, good news, Paris gets out tomorrow...probably around 2 or 3 in the morning (PDT) I would imagine.

That means that Thursday's show should (hopefully) be a go. I'll have to set the Tivo to record it.
