Studio 1A welcomed back a familiar face. Al Roker returned to the Today Show set for the first time since his prostate cancer surgery earlier this November.

The co-host announced his diagnosis on-air at the beginning of the month and underwent surgery a few days later. Since being released from the hospital, Roker appeared on the show once, virtually from home, reassuring his colleagues that he’s been doing well recuperating.

Roker was back in his seat at Today just two weeks after his procedure, leading to a warm welcome from his fellow co-hosts, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin and Carson Daly.

“We’re all together again,” Guthrie cheered. “We can be happy because our Al has returned to Studio 1A.”
