9 Stars Who Could Replace Billy Bush on ‘Today,’ From Willie Geist to Carson Daly (Photos)

Who will take over Billy Bush’s job co-hosting the 9 a.m. hour of NBC’s “Today”? We have a few possibilities for you.

Billy Bush, you will remember, was suspended by “Today” after a 2005 videotape surfaced of Billy Bush giggling while Donald Trump bragged of sexually assaulting women. So who could replace him?

Harry Connick Jr.

His daytime talk show isn’t grabbing huge ratings, so the singer may be free soon.

Mario Lopez

Look, there are tons of “Saved By the Bell” fans out there, and they’re not going to let the memories go.

Taye Diggs

He’s done Broadway, film, TV, and would give “Today” some real star power.

Carson Daly

The NBC host has already been a fill-in during Bush’s absence. A natural!

Seth Meyers

OK, he’s already got a late-night talk show on NBC. But he wouldn’t be the first host to pull double-duty.

Neil Patrick Harris

He’s hosted everything else already. It’s time for this versatile actor to get his own permanent gig.

Jeb Bush

Look, we’re not saying he’s the most qualified guy out there. But he needs a job.

Willie Geist

He already lost out to Billy Bush for the “Today” job. Time to bring him back.

Jesse Watters

Right. Bad idea.
