Disgraced "Today" show host Matt Lauer is confident he will "be back on TV," insiders told Page Six.
Lauer reportedly told fans at New York's Donohue's Steak House that he's hoping for a comeback nearly a year after being fired from NBC over sexual harassment allegations.
An insider told Page Six that a group of women approached Lauer saying they missed seeing him on TV.
Lauer then told the fans: "I've been busy being a dad. But don't worry, I'll be back on TV."
The former "Today" host didn't go into detail about how he plans to return to television, but this isn't the first time rumors over his comeback have surfaced.
In April, he also was rumored to be planning a return, and in June he was seen having lunch with a former "Today" senior producer.
Lauer was one of many men to be revealed to be an alleged sexual harasser as the #MeToo movement went into full force in Hollywood last year.
He was fired from NBC after more than two decades with the network after accusations emerged that he had exposed himself, made lewd comments to a colleague, and even used a security device to lock women in his office.
A day after he was fired from NBC last November, Lauer responded to the allegations, saying: "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions."
He did not address any specific accusations in his statement, but said "repairing the damage" from his deeds was a "full-time job."
"Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed," Lauer wrote in his statement.
