“Overslept big time. It’s 6.34am and I’m still in the car,” Guthrie captioned a selfie, just 25 minutes before the cameras were due to start rolling.
As she arrived in the building still undressed for the day, TODAY’S radio program director could be heard yelling out, “Oh Savannah!”
“I know. I can’t even,” the exasperated TV host responded.
At 6.40am, Guthrie filmed her stylist running a hairdryer through her air with only 20 minutes until showtime. “Miracle workers,” she captioned her clip of her.

Amazingly, it took the hair and makeup artists just 14 minutes to get the anchor camera ready.
Finally, just six minutes before the 7am show, Guthrie strolled into the studio and greeted her co-host Craig Melvin.
“This is a miracle,” she said as she joined them at the studio desk. “I’m gonna make it!”
“I can’t believe it,” Guthrie added, while Melvin responded: “It’s amazing.”
After the show began, Melvin took the opportunity to tease his co-anchor about oversleeping.

“Savannah Guthrie rolled in about 15 minutes ago. She overslept. She is normal,” he told viewers.
“15 minutes ago with no hair, no makeup. It was a terrifying sight,” Guthrie joked in response.
“But some miracle workers upstairs rolled me in and I’m very happy to be here.”
After the show, Guthrie shared a sweet text message sent from her husband Mike, who was also amazed she made it on-air.
“You made it AND you look hot,” he quipped in a text.

Guthrie is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of morning television. Earlier this month, the TV anchor revealed she had filmed the entire show with her shirt on backwards.
“Realizing you wore your shirt backwards all morning,” Guthrie wrote on Instagram.
In 2020, the TODAY host also admitted she wore her dress the wrong way while on-air.
“I have to point out, I’m sorry, sometimes when you get dressed in the morning – you all know this – things get backwards,” Guthrie laughed during the show.
