NBC's 'Today,' March 26, 2007. 'Today' co-host Vieira hit her head on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center Monday during a live segment in which Ferrell was promoting his new ice skating movie.
Vieira and Ferrell were on skates during a segment just before 9 a.m. EDT, with Ferrell showing Vieira some moves he had learned for "Blades of Glory," which opens Friday. In one maneuver, Vieira passed under Ferrell's legs when she fell backward and hit her head.

"Owww, that hurt," Vieira said as a surprised Ferrell helped her get back on her feet. Vieira didn't miss a beat, however, adding, "We'll be right back."

Ferrell asked, "Oh my God, are you OK?"

Vieira returned after the commercial break, on the ice with Ferrell, substitute co-host David Gregory and co-host Natalie Morales, and they replayed the fall from several angles before 9 a.m. A "Today" spokesman said Monday that she was checked out and that everything was fine.
