TODAY host Al Roker shared an evil laugh while taking credit for his "nemesis" sportscaster Mike Tirico losing his audio during his segment on Friday.

The weather forecaster, 65, took over for Mike, claiming it was his plan all along.

The 53-year-old was in the middle of a report when his mic went out and TODAY cut over to co-host Craig Melvin.

He told viewers: "We'll get Tirico's audio fixed, and while we do that, how about we check in with Mr. Roker? He is standing by with a check at that weekend forecast."

When Al's video pops up on the show, he's giving his best evil laugh while rolling his hands like he's a movie villain.

Eventually, he stops laughing long enough to get boast, "My nemesis, Mike Tirico, taken off the air," before returning to his laughter.

Craig jokingly accused him of being behind it all and having "something to do with it."

Al confessed: "I did. The plug is just off camera, but in the meantime, while you try to 'fix Tirico,' let me show you what's happening with—"

The weather forecaster stopped what he was saying when an audio-less Mike returned to the broadcast to laugh and wag his finger at Al.

Before getting into his own segment, Al quickly acknowledged his rival: "I see you Tirico!"

Though he was joking this time, a couple of days ago, Al really did have something to do with messing another person's TV gig.

Earlier this week, he crashed his reporter wife Deborah Roberts' live segment at rival show, Good Morning America.

Deborah was speaking with Robin Roberts about a story focused on helping kids with special needs stay focused as they attend virtual therapy sessions during the coronavirus pandemic.

Her report was interrupted by her 17-year-old son Nicholas jumping in to wave at the camera, and her 65-year-old husband popping up to make funny faces behind her back.

She didn't realize what was happening behind her until Robin pointed it out.

Robin said: "Wait a minute! We have an Al Rocker sighting as well. This is a first."

Deborah laughed it off and pushed them both out of the shot, repeatedly saying "No!"

She continued: "The family is sorta chaotic but it's been a fun time."

Al shared a clip of the funny moment on his Twitter account, warning that the video is proof of "the dangers of broadcasting live on Today Show and GMA from the same house."

Deborah also shared the video and wrote: "Never a dull moment working from home with two network household!"

Al, who joined NBC in 1978, and Deborah, who's been with ABC since 1995, got married in September 1995 and have two children together — Leila, 21, and Nicholas, 17.
