Meredith Viera Outrageous MomentsShe may be one of the most candid hosts 'The Today Show' has ever seen -- when Meredith Vieira takes her final co-host bow we won't only be saying goodbye to a beloved news anchor but to an occasionally crude but mostly hilarious morning show staple who's had us laughing for the past five years.

From talking dirty with James Franco to kicking co-host, Matt Lauer in his "peppercorns" to accidentally firing off a joke, while still on air, about a guest who was struck by lightning, it's Vieira's undying and often inappropriate humor that has raked in the viewers and made her the person that millions of Americans choose to wake up with every morning.
