'Today' Show Flubs Lorne Michaels' Name: "Lauren Michaels"

Lorne Michaels

A graphic on NBC's live show referred to the 'Saturday Night Live' creator as "Lauren."

A graphic on NBC's Today show on Wednesday misidentified Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels as "Lauren."

The flub by a graphics person, made on the East Coast feed of the morning show, was corrected for broadcasts in other time zones and online, the network said.

Today had interviewed Michaels for a story Matt Lauer did on a New York gathering for people listed by TIME magazine as the 100 most influential in the world.

Today and Saturday Night Live, of course, both originate from NBC's Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York.

Watch the segment below (the corrected graphic appears at the 4:11 mark).
