Last week, the NBC morning show star, who joined the weekday Today cast in September of 2018, shared a sweet Instagram of himself and his third-hour costars — Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer — all smiles while on set. Accompanying the touching picture was a caption that gave viewers a glimpse into the cast members' close bond with each other when the cameras stop rolling.
Craig wrote, "Sometimes people ask, 'do you really have as much fun as you seem to on @3rdhourtoday?' @alroker @sheinelle_o @dylandreyernbc make work fun every day."
Reacting to Craig's sentimental post, fans started to gush in the comments section. "I love watching the 'Today' crew. All of you genuinely look like you enjoy working together and are friends outside the studio. When you cry for each other whether good news or bad, I start to cry because I can see the love for each other. You can’t get those raw emotions anywhere on TV except The Today Show. 💕 👏," one viewer wrote. "I love laughing along with you guys 🤩," another said. "You guys chemistry is the best in alllll of TV!! Absolutely love you all!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️," another fan added.
Outside of studio-1A, the Today show cast hangs out from time to time. This past June, Craig, Dylan, Sheinelle and Hoda Kotb all attended the wedding of Al's oldest daughter, Courtney. While sharing Instagram photos from the evening, Craig called the evening "a special night" and said he enjoyed the celebration and seeing his "friend and mentor" Al walk down the aisle.
While at work, it's clear Craig and his coworkers have a blast together. Once when speaking to Good Housekeeping, Al joked about how he, Craig and Carson Daly have thermostat wars with some of the female cohosts — and when they lose, they frequently "sweat like pigs" in their suits. But even still, they're laughing the whole time.
"What I don't think people realize is that we produce four hours of television, every day. We produce more TV than NBC entertainment produces every night ... and it's live," Al explained at the time. "Every show is basically a ballet, a wrestling match, a circus and a newscast all rolled into one."
But what a fun time it is!
