Hagerty will fly to New York on Friday to film a segment for NBC’s “Today” show on Saturday. Hagerty said she was told she would appear between 7:30 and 9 a.m. Saturday.

Word of her latest column first spread Wednesday through the website Gawker, which also played a role in her initial viral popularity nearly two years ago.

Hagerty’s review of Olive Garden spread far and wide after food critic Anthony Bourdain tweeted a comment about his appreciation of her to his followers.

Fascination with her personality and review of chain restaurants grew quickly, leading to Hagerty’s appearance on several national talk shows and the publication of a collection of her columns through Bourdain’s imprint, Ecco Press.
