(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - There's no word if she has the job full-time, but Savannah Guthrie was seated in Ann Curry's former chair as co-host of NBC's "Today" show on Friday morning.

Guthrie sat beside Matt Lauer, discussing stories about the Colorado wildfires and Supreme Court health care decision and later making Fourth of July party decorations and dancing to a Maroon 5 concert. Neither one made mention of her new presence on the show.

She filled in for Curry, who gave a tearful goodbye Thursday as she was cut loose after one year as Lauer's co-host.

NBC hasn't said anything publicly about who will replace Curry full-time, and nothing was said during the first two hours of the show. The show's introduction, which normally announces the show's hosts, omitted that feature on Friday.

The turnover comes as NBC's profitable morning show faces its most serious ratings challenge since the mid-1990s. from ABC's "Good Morning America."
