Matt Lauer is going to be on your television for another two years.

Well ... I don't know that he's literally going to be there on the TV. That would be kind of weird.

Even though Lauer's "Today" show on NBC has lost its status as the No. 1 morning show to ABC's "Good Morning America," NBC has tacked a couple more years on Lauer's contract.

"I couldn't be happier to be staying," Lauer said in a statement, according to the New York Times.

"He's the best in the business, and there is nobody I would rather have in the 'Today' anchor chair than Matt," NBC News president Deborah Turness said.

Sounds like everyone is happy.

Lauer and former co-anchor Katie Couric became America's favorite morning hosts during the 1990s. But Lauer's reputation took a huge hit in 2012, when he was rumored to be behind co-host Ann Curry's awkward departure, something he denied but didn't really explain.

Lauer's current contract, which was set to expire soon, paid him up to $25 million per year, according to reports that Lauer has said were inaccurate.
