As the Today Show struggles to get it's swagger back, they are hoping that chewing the fat with the New Jersey Governor will help boost ratings.

NJ governor Chris Christie will co-host the second hour of "Today" when the show comes to the Jersey Shore in a couple of weeks.

The Today Show announced their latest sweeps stunt last week. 

The Today crew would all be traveling together for the first time ever.

Starting Monday, May 20, the Great American Adventure will take Matt, Savannah, Natalie, Willie and Al from coast to coast, visiting five U.S. destinations in a single week.

Chris Christie made news Today when he reveled that he was going to start eating better and exercising.....oh no wait.....he had lap band surgery to try and drop the weight. Not sure how this is news, but for some reason the TV nets think it is.
