NBC says that blood eyed Bob Costas will be back on the air tonight for NBC's prime time Olympic coverage.
"I'm glad to be back, and I want to thank Matt and Meredith for doing such a good job in filling in,'' Costas said by phone on TODAY Monday. "I really feel bad, especially (for) Matt. Meredith was twiddling her thumbs a little bit, let's be honest, but Matt was doing double duty. Back and forth to the mountains and an hour's sleep, and now he holds so many chips on me on his side of the table. I owe him so many favors. That's the worst part of the whole thing."
