Thursday, morning television did its best to embrace spookiness outside the realm of boardrooms or Washington, D.C. by dressing in scary, tacky, silly Halloween costumes.
At NBC’s “Today,” which is still being haunted by the ghosts of Matt Lauer and Megyn Kelly, Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly went as Danny and Sandy. Hoda Kotb also channeled John Travolta, but chose Saturday Night Fever over Grease. Classic movies proved popular for the whole show, actually: Jenna Bush Hager and Willie Geist took on Dirty Dancing while Peter Alexander cut Footloose.
ABC’s “Good Morning America”
ABC’s “Good Morning America” wasn’t just Footlose: The whole cast had a 1970s-themed dance party, DJ’d by George Stephanopoulos. Robin Roberts was Donna Summer, Michael Strahan joined the Bee Gees,Lara Spencer was Liza Minnelli and Ginger Zee got to be Olivia Newton-John.
ABC’s “Live With Kelly and Ryan”
On “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest led the team in getting into the (Addams) family spirit…
…and led them to Old Town Road, too.
HLN’s “Morning Express”
Disco made a third appearance during HLN’s “Morning Express,” but so, too, did Pretty Woman and… a mashup of Terminator and Mary Poppins? Watch that one yourself:
HLN’s Morning Express crew can’t decide what to be for Halloween… so @RobinMeade, @BobVanDillen, @JenWesthoven, @KnowlesItAll, @CoyWire, and @AndyScholesCNN combine ALL of their ideas into one epic Costume Party! #HappyHalloween! pic.twitter.com/YGjk5NzL95

Fox News’ “Fox and Friends”
Also on cable, “Fox and Friends” hosts joined forces with Party City for a “patriotic” theme. Steve Doocy was Uncle Sam. Ainsley Earhardt was the Constitution. You see where this is going.
