TODAY’s Al Roker slammed back at his co-hosts Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer with a scathing comment in an awkward live moment.
The weatherman has recently caused concern among fans as he has returned to work following serious health issues.
But that hasn’t stopped Al, 68, from having his hilarious on-screen banter with his co-stars Sheinelle, 44, and Dylan, 41.
During a segment last week, the meteorologist asked his fellow hosts what their plans were for Valentine’s Day.
But the girls were speechless as they shared a sideways glance and hesitated to answer.
Al was visibly uncomfortable as the group sat in silence, leading him to say, “Okay…”
“Al do you have plans,” someone asked, but Dylan jumped in to say, “We’ve decided we’re not really going to do anything on Valentine’s Day.”
Sheinelle then chimed in: “What are you going to do?”
Al replied: “I only go out for dinner, you know what? We have no children at home!”
The TV star then cackled a loud laugh as he shut down his castmates with a scathing reply.

Despite his cheerful on-screen demeanor, fans have been begging the Today star to take some time off for himself as he juggles multiple television appearances.
On Friday, Al took a moment out of his super-busy schedule to share a few updates with viewers about shows they could find him on.
The beloved weatherman captured a clip and posted it to his Instagram to keep fans updated.
Al captioned his video: “Get ready for @nbcnightlynews with @lesterholtnbc covering severe storms and winter weather, the latest on the Ohio train derailment, @potus @joebiden talking about those hovering object launches and a heartbreaking diagnosis for #BruceWillis.”
He explained what fans could look forward to in the accompanying video.
“We’ll be back live for NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt tonight talking about the snow and severe weather,” Al said in the clip.
“It’s going to be kind of amazing, plus we have the latest on the train derailment and what’s going on with these poor people in Ohio, and an unfortunate diagnosis for Bruce Willis.”
Al outlined all the other topics he would cover on NBC Nightly News.
It sounded like he had a full plate to eat alongside Lester Holt.
After giving an overview of upcoming issues, Al said goodbye.
“Have a nice day and I hope to see you tomorrow morning on Today,” he said, pausing the recording.
Fans were worried Al had spread too thin after hearing everything he was up to.
One fan wrote of Al: “The man who doesn’t sleep!”
Another pleaded: “Love watching you but don’t work too much. Take time to take care of yourself & @debrobertsabc.”
A third fan appreciated Al’s hard work: “Thanks Al! Gosh, what time do you sleep?” and followed her message with a fire and heart emoji.
One curious fan wondered why Al had to go to the studio to work: “I don’t see why you can’t do your forecast from home. Seems cruel to let you go into the studio for such a short segment.”
Al has certainly kept his career on track, although fans want to know he’s also taking some time off for himself.
