| Filed under: TV News


Sad news TV viewers!

As we first reported three weeks ago…

Kathy Lee Gifford is returning to daytime!

The former Live co-host will be anchoring the Today show's 10 A.M. fourth hour, it was officially announced this morning.

Kathy Lee starts next Monday.

Gifford will be going head-to-head with the ladies from The View. We'd rather watch that show any day over Kathy Lee!

    The View's on at 11 am est. How will they be going head to head?

  22. Erin says – reply to this


    Is this the beginning of the apocalypse?

  23. Robert says – reply to this


    Means nothing to me since I will never watch the show…not even when the View is in repeats!!!!!! What a DUMB idea to bring her back!!!!!!!

  24. Olberman does blow says – reply to this


    He does blow, I seen him last night on tv and he is all up Obama's ass. He basically throws everyone elses opinion out the window. I'd rather watch "gulp" Bill O' Reilly then this jerk. At least Bill listens.. a little. Keith Olberman is so pushy on Obama we don't get the truth that be. Obama should be charged for commercial time on The Countdown which airs on MSNBC..

  25. ChrisJ says – reply to this


    Great news! She's very funny and candid…not the uptight Christian that she was unfairly portrayed as when she was with Regis. I'll be watching.

  26. New york Guy says – reply to this


    Honestly, it does not bother me all that much, I am kind of curious. Maybe she has learned her lesson and will keep her mouth shut about her 'Pefect marraige" and Perfect Children" (You just know those kids need therapy!) All the drama sought of made her human after all, I'm hoping she came back down to earth and will do what she does best, just be a host, when she wasn't blowing off steam she was very good at it, here's hoping.

  27. Angela says – reply to this


    Ease up, she is very good at what she does. She has the gift of gab, good sense of humor too. I was and still am a big fan of Kathie Lee's. You'll see, she will do great!!!

    Funny lady, good times………………

  28. Leen says – reply to this


    Watching Brit take a dump is more entertaining than 'The View'…

  29. Lora says – reply to this


    Kathie Lee is the AntiChrist!!
    I'm boycotting the Today show, How about you?

  30. Hippo says – reply to this


    Kathie Lee Gifford is an annoying, obnoxious braggart–second only to Tom Cruise.

    Her bragging about her "great" marriage and family while on Regis was insufferable. That's why The Globe set her husband Frank up for that embarrassing infidelity scandal.

    She might be okay as a host if she would STFU about how great she thinks she is.

  31. june says – reply to this


    why is it sad? I like her

  32. Manhattan Man says – reply to this


    The only people Keith upsets are holier then thou, stick up thier ass Republicans, and I LOVE him for that. He does not mislead Americans he calls out the Republicans for exactly what they are, and they can't stand it. GOOD FOR HIM!!!

  33. Buster Cherry says – reply to this


    Re: KEITH OLBERMANN SUCKS! – Olberman is a major tool of the demorat party. The night of the passport fiasco concerning Obama, he was as breathless as a teenage girl on prom night. He KNEW that President Bush was behind it. When the truth came out within 30 minutes, he dropped the subject all together. He's damn near 50 and has NO DRIVERS LICENSE! Would you say he's weird because he still lives with his mother? I would. BTW, I would rather stare at Kathy Lee's sagging tits than prune faced Jo Behar. She's married? If I were her husband I would be into masturbation.

  34. Please No says – reply to this


    Shut up about your ding dong kids,I won,t be watching this washed up old hag jesus freak

  35. NBCDaytimeSucks says – reply to this


    I wonder how much they have to pay Kathie Lee and where that money is coming from? Are they gonna slash DAYS' budget again? Or just cancel the damn show once and for all?

  36. becky says – reply to this


    You are kidding, right?!! Well. Time to forget saving for retirement and use the money to BUY A GUN AND KILL MYSELF! What next! Wait: Obama wants her as running mate! Idiots all.

  37. uh no says – reply to this


    she wont be going head to head with the view… the view is on at 11 and the fourth hour of today is from 10 to 11. Remember Perez not everone lives in horrible cali… some of us actually live on the east coast.

  38. smokey says – reply to this


    What a great addition, I will watch her over the veiw. The view is getting so old. Whoppie is the only thing the veiw has going for it. I think Kathy Lee will be a fresh fun addition for the summer months. Get with it Perez, the view is over 10 years old.

  39. kait says – reply to this


    Celebrate by having your pits lasered, Kathy.

  40. KEITH OLBERMANN SUCKS!! says – reply to this


    Re: Manhattan Man – Keith Olbermann is for only one person, Barack Obama. His show is a commercial for the Obama campaign. He hates Clinton and Mc Cain. He wants to close the door on Americans who would vote for Clinton or Mc Cain. He even asked Clinton to drop out after New Hampshire , which she won. He wants her to drop out now because of her substantial lead in Pennsylvania, which very well could change the race. He must hate Michigan and Florida because he says voters there shouldn't have a say..UMM I thought we lived in a democracy.. its because Clinton would win in those states too. He is a dictator on MSNBC. No one can question his motives, power and ratings. He needs them because his nemisis , Bill O 'Reilly is tearing him up. Olbermann should of stuck with the sports news on ESPN, because know one cares about his views since he cares none for ours. He needs to go! What the hell is a sportscaster doing telling us how to vote!!! IRRESPONSIBLE NBC!!

  41. chloe says – reply to this


    Kathie Lee happens to be a personal friend of my family and I and she is one of the most lovely ladies I've ever met. Her family is amazing, she is so pure, kind, religious, beautiful and talented. Dont hate! Im so happy for her ;)

  42. Reality Byte says – reply to this


    If Kathie Lee comes on air at 10am and The View at 11am, how exactly is that head-to-head?

    I won't be watching either, so it's moot to me.

  43. please tell me no says – reply to this


    OH HELL TO THA NO. first of all they took off martha at 10 to put on those stupid, screeching bunch of nobody's and NOW THEY ARE GOING TO ADD KATHIE LEE. what the fuck! OMG. i can't even begin to tell you how pissed i am. i was even hoping that indulgent, stupid, superfluous, 4th fucking hour of the stupid Today Show would get cancelled due to no viewers. guess i was wrong. i hate this news. ruined my fucking day.

  44. vs says – reply to this


    Oh, lord not her again. If she mentions Cody one time. Oh, i will not be

    between this and Obama - THE APOCALYPSE HAS STARTED!!!!!

  48. c says – reply to this


    She's not all bad and annoying. Give her a break Perez. She has fought the issues that have fast her (the child labor clothing line drama) and strongly fought against it, as well as being an advocate for disabled children.
    She does more then some of those women of The View (that i do watch as well, nothing much wrong w/ them either). Please lighten up on the lady.

  49. lmao says – reply to this


    After she "left" Live with Regis and Kathy, she said she had so many plans, looks like that didn't work out too well for you Kathy.
    I think she was asked to leave that show, good luck to the Today show with her.

    oh, shush, perez. she is so funny and down to earth. i am happy for her and she will be a great addition to the today team.

  53. terry says – reply to this


    I like her , I prefer her over Kelly Ripa who seems to me to be entirely fake and egotistical. Kathy seems genuine and I wish her well.

    Out of all the real talent out there and the new fresh faces… THIS IS THE BEST THEY COULD DO? Give me a break… like we need to see this old annoying slag back on the airwaves… ugh….

  57. brandi says – reply to this


    yeah, kathie, i'll be watching right after hottopics if it's good.
    i still love ya baby

  58. K says – reply to this


    Does anyone really watch the 4th hour?

  59. Me says – reply to this


    Out of all the real talent out there and the new fresh faces… THIS IS THE BEST THEY COULD DO….


    I agree…Such a has-been. Can’t see she do some behind-the-scene crap somewhere, not on T.V. I don’t think anyone wants to see her “nip/tucked” face.

    FYI…The View is shown at 10:00 a.m. here in the Central Time Zone (you know the saying “Eight, Seven Central.” We get everything an hour early. Brian Williams, 5:30, Entertainment Tonight 6:30, CSI 8:00….Send the kids to another room, our Prime Time is NOT for young kids)

    They must be desperate. Shouldn't she be on a Carnival cruise somewhere?
    Today Show, your demographic search is showing!
    And Ann Curry should go, too. Live tv isn't for her.
    And Willard Scott? Huh? I loves me some old people but….

  64. Mariah says – reply to this


    The View is on at 11

  66. Kathy's Manager says – reply to this


    Meredith Viera is so stupid- the inaccuracies of her statements are mind boggling. I had to stop watching the Today show even for the 15 minutes I could have it on- Meredith mispronounces words, misuses words, is pushy and makes everyone else look uncomfortable. She is like the whiney, annoying girl in every high school that thinks she's smart, but only looks lame when she tries to compete. I know Matt Lauer must want to kill her. Kathy Lee can at least TALK. And she is a very quick thinker, unlike poor Viera. The View is one of the worst shows on television. Who wants to watch the vicious Joy Behar, who is not funny but mean? Or that woman who thinks the world could be flat? Or the plastic Babwa? Whoopi has something to say every now and then, and I don't know why Elizabeth even came back from maternity leave because she gets so much crap for speaking her mind. I"ll turn on the radio in the morning.

    the gab rags reported this 4 weeks ago. great inside info, Mario.

  68. 4:20 says – reply to this


    Perez sez: Gifford will be going head-to-head with the ladies from The View. We'd rather watch that show any day over Kathy Lee!

    AMEN! I would rather listen to John Tesh music than that hag!

  69. Theresa says – reply to this


    I think she's only going head-to-head against the view on the west coast, the view is on at 11 on the east coast. but still, ugh.

  70. Michi says – reply to this


    This makes me extreeemly happy.


  71. Barb says – reply to this


    ICK. Sucks too because it'd be nice if we COULD watch the View instead. It's on here on the east coast at 11am, the fourth hour of today starts at 10am, so I guess no TV for me for an hour a day. :)

  72. Tropics says – reply to this


    Good Gawd, what dumb ass put this hag back on TV? Getting rid of her was the best thing Reg ever did. Maybe they thought Today needed a right winger fundie to balance out the uber lib Meridith V. They are way wrong. The world is sick to death of these neo-con religous creeps.
    Hey Kathy, your husband is fucking the baby sitter! LOL! Praise Jeebus.

  73. Lora says – reply to this


    Re: chloe
    I feel sorry for you, Kathie lee a close friend? you should get out more, use your time wisely, help out @ a shelter or something. You need a new friend, cause w/ a friend like her you will go to hell faster than the rest of us heathens.

  74. Slick Willey says – reply to this


    WHORE !!!!

  75. Linda says – reply to this


    Oh please say it isn't so! Kathy Lee Gifford …the great "I Am" The TODAY SHOW just lost another viewer.

  76. Claire Randall says – reply to this


    Not me. Sherry Shepherd has a head full of sawdust. The dumb comments she comes out with are enough to make a person with normal intelligence cringe. I never watch The View now with her there. On the other hand, Whoopie is one intelligent lady who is totally watchable.

  77. nana says – reply to this


    I am sorry, but NBC should have taken a poll before they hired Kathy Lee to host the fourth hour of the Today show. I always watch it in the mornings, but sometimes turn the channel in the fourth hour to watch The View. Now I will most likely turn the channel everyday since Kathy Lee is on it. This could be a big mistake.

  78. oh please says – reply to this


    How can she be going head to head with the ladies of the View, when the View doesn't come on until 11 AM eastern time?!?!!??!!

  79. Marky says – reply to this


    I don't think that your demographic information (fat, bitter, aging queens) is the target demographic for these types of shows, so I'll bet neither NBC or ABC could care less what you'd rather watch.

  80. sorry says – reply to this


    I know this is a bit off topic, but I can't stand Kelly Ripa, FYI. And, I don't understand what is everyone's problem with Kathy Lee G? I mean, that whole celebrity deathmatch with Howard Stern is just insane! Why did he hate her so much? I'm sure she will do a terrific job on the Today Show. Back to Regis and Kelly, I used to DVR that show, but I couldn't even stand watching it for 5 minutes. Their conversations were always so boring and so were their guests. The View and their hot topics are what I will continue to be watching! YOU GO BABWA!!!!!

  81. Marcela Orellana says – reply to this


    I hate that bitch……….

  82. view watcher says – reply to this


    Those in the central time zone are lucky that The View does come on at 10:00 so we can change the channel.

  86. Vu says – reply to this


    Oh god . . . . just when I thought it was safe to turn on the TV. I absolutely cannot stand this woman.

    I couldn't stand her bragging about her husband or her kids - she was pimping them out constantly!!

    Looks like I'm switching over to GMA.

  87. Rayne Wright says – reply to this


    As long as it's not evening prime-time. She makes me itch she is so "quick."

  88. Daniel says – reply to this


    ewww….that used up skank needs to keep to herself. no one wants to see her burnt out ass anymore….go home kathy lee…dont you have a sweatshop to manage? ugh

  89. Rachel says – reply to this


    I usually turn off The Today Show at 9. I will definitely tune in when Kathie Lee is on. She's entertaining. I'm impressed that the other ladies on the show are welcoming her, because she will take the spotlight. All the ladies are pretty likeable- except Ann Curry - YUCK. total phony- and before you say, "what about Kathie Lee?!" .. Kathie Lee at least gets the fact that people think of her as a phony. She almost seems to have fun with it. She doesn't take herself so seriously, and I like that.

  90. nellpost says – reply to this


    why don't you like her? too much hate will make you sick!

  91. Denny says – reply to this


    Kathy Lee Gifcunt sucks. Anyone who likes her should really be taken out back and shot. Thank god I'm at work during that time, and don't have to sit and listen to that gash talk about her washed up life and career. I can only imagine what fucking Amy Grant song that bitch will sing on air first. God, I hope Frank fucks around on her again. Cunt!

  92. Daryl says – reply to this


    Kathy Lee is the DEVIL……an hour of hell that I'll be sure to avoid.

  93. EWinWashDC says – reply to this


    Disaster! What is NBC thinking? Don't they recall that rating shot UP when she left Regis Philbin. I like the Today Show, but will only be Tivoing/watching up to 10am from now on. I hope the ratings tank from 10 to 11am.

  94. The View, ah er, I mean the Today Show says – reply to this


    The Today Show lost its way a few years ago. Look at Matt Lauer. Like a desperate guy who didn't read the fine print of his contract. That show used to be about news of the moment that was relevant and important. Now it's produced by 20-somethings who think we all need to pick out baby names and strollers. We don't you fucking retards and you're losing thousands and thousands of adult viewers with brains and not baby drool. Kathy Lee and Hoda et al are just another attempt to View-ize this show. It's completely unwatchable.

  95. Keith Oberman Needs Straightening Out! says – reply to this


    Re: Buster Cherry – Buster Cherry, that was fucking hysterical, I loved it! And I am a Democrat who "used" to think Keith Oberman was a bright guy until the last six months of the repeating Obama masterbation video every night that is his show. We get it! You like him. Or you like Bush, I am not sure which, but we sure as hell know you hate Hillary, Keith. I mean, that is one thing to hate on Hillary ad naseum, but no driver's license and he's living with his mother? No offense of course, but is this true? It just adds to the mountain of mystique that is Keith Oberman and for the love of god, throw in a Hillary bone once is a fucking while, Keith! Pretty funny.

  96. deanna says – reply to this


    I LOVE Katy Lee. Can't wait to see her again each and every morning.

  97. Kathie Big Mouth Cow says – reply to this


    Old hag. I don't think she is capable of closing her mouth. Just loves the sound of her own voice and attempted jokes at Frank's expense.
    I am now protesting the Today Show.

  98. red says – reply to this


    I don't like her either but she will be a big improvement over the crazy left wing witches on The View.

  99. John says – reply to this


    I LOVE KATHIE LEE!!!! She's funny, witty and real. She knows who she is and where she stands. She said in an interview that she loves the gay community and their support. I guess you're the exception though.

  100. Heather says – reply to this


    Why, why, WHY would NBC do something so stupid?!
