"Extra" host AJ Calloway met up with “Today” host Matt Lauer at TIME Magazine's annual 100 Most Influential People gala, where he was being honored, to talk about his recent multi-million-dollar deal to re-sign with the "Today" show.

Lauer revealed to "Extra" that he would like to use his "influence" to end the morning show ratings war. "I'm here to offer a peace treaty in those wars. I want to go back to doing the news… not being in the news."
