They've got the pricey glass studio on Fifth Avenue. They've got the former anchor of NBC's "Today," the morning show gold standard, and the executive producer that kept "Today" No. 1. But once again, on this Monday morning, "Today" is still causing chaos at CBS' "The Early Show." Steve Friedman, the "Today" veteran now running the "Early Show," weaves among producers in the control room, keeping a close eye on the competition on 10 TV screens hanging from the ceiling.

CBS debuted its new team of four anchors on "The Early Show" Monday in its latest effort to compete with more dominant morning rivals. Harry Smith, Hannah Storm, Julie Chen and Rene Syler presided over a typical morning mix of news and makeovers. Smith is an old hand, with nine years as host of an earlier CBS morning show incarnation.

Is it any wonder that the NBC show retaliated last week when it had the chance, stealing the live Mariah Carey concert that CBS had already announced would be the showpiece of its launch today?

Lenny Boyette is a fixture on NBC's "Today." He's not a foreign correspondent, a cameraman or a guest. Still, all the security guards know him and wave when he arrives at Rockefeller Plaza. Even Matt Lauer and Katie Couric shake his hand and call him by name. Boyette is a 57-year-old retired military cook from the Bronx. And every weekday for the last five years, he has stood behind the barricades at the outdoor set to watch "Today" being taped. He arrives between 5 and 5:30 a.m.
