The beloved weatherman has been absent from the NBC show for almost two months after he was  admitted to the hospital twice after blood clots traveled to his lungs. But on Friday, Al looked happy and healthy as he resumed his duties, much to the delight of his co-anchors.

Minutes into the start of the program, Al appeared with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb and the emotions were running high.
