"Friday finale," she wrote. "What a joyous moment to step back into the @abcnews Times Square studio for the first time in a year (after a Covid test, of course).

"And join our talented team for a special interview tonight with three stellar women of color. We explore our feelings and concerns about life at this moment. Truly special way to end the week. What has made you feel a bit more normal this week?"

Al, 66, and Deborah have had a tough year, made even harder by his prostate cancer diagnosis

The much-loved TV star shared his journey to recovery with fans after getting the bad news in September 2020.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Al and Deborah opened up about the diagnosis and she admitted: "My heart just sank to my toes. Because it never even occurred to me that there was anything serious. When he said, 'It's cancer,' I just lost it."

She added: "It was very emotional for me. What if he is not going to be here with me much longer? You really let your mind go there, you cherish and you clutch and you hold on."

Fortunately, Al was given the all-clear by doctors in January after receiving treatment.

He's grateful for every day he gets to be with his family, especially for Deborah, who he affectionately calls his "rock".
