At the beginning of the show on Monday 7 November, Hoda kicked off the program by announcing: "This is not any Monday, Jenna," to which her co-star replied with: "No, it's not just your typical Monday because we have a big announcement."
Prior to unveiling the news, Hoda explained: "This means a lot to Jenna and myself, and our show and to you too," referring to their fans.
"We are going back to studio 6A! With a live audience!" the two finally announced, revealing that starting the following week, for one week only, fans in New York City will be able to watch the show live right from the NBC studios in Rockefeller Center.

"The thing we love the most about this is that it means you," Hoda said looking at the camera, adding: "[You] get to see us, because we miss it."
Jenna added: "Yes! And we miss y'all. Don't you feel like everybody wants connection? I feel like everybody is going back to church, people are back together, people are going to concerts and shows… So guess what, come hang with us."
"This is something so important to us because there is something about sitting among the people you love," Hoda added.
