More screen time for Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski at NBCU. The It Couple of NBC’s Sochi Olympics coverage willnbcs-johnny-weir-and-tara-lipinski-brought-22-pairs-of-shoes-and-10-pounds-of-jewelry-to-sochi__140225210302-575x431 be part of  NBC’s Today  Oscar show from LA on Monday. Kathie Lee Gifford and Al Roker are hosting the split Today show from LA, where Weir and Lipinski will join them to announce their red carpet winners and losers.

A couple days ago, NBCU announced Weir and Lipinski would join the company’s syndicated show Access Hollywood on the red carpet at the Oscars to report on the fashion, with Weir saying he hoped “to bring my own special brand of sparkle to the broadcast,” adding that he and Lipinski “hope to entertain America’s pants off.”

The duo got high marks for their ice-skating commentary for the networks of NBC at the Winter Games, but the two — and especially Weir — were Must See TV for their outfits. Weir and Lipinski told NBC’s Today during the Olympics that they came to Sochi with four suitcases apiece, describing the cases as being the same size as Ford Focuses and Audi S4s. They contained, among other things, 22 pair of shoes, 25 blazers, six pair of leather pants, 10 pounds of jewelry and four fur coats.
