Ann Curry Vs. Everyone At The Today Show

| Filed under: TV News

wompwompnbc.jpg

It’s been almost a year since Ann Curry relieved Meredith Viera of her early morning co-host duties at NBC’s Today Show, and it seems the inner whisperings among the cast/crew are that she is about to get AXED.

Apparently, the mighty Matt Lauer can’t stand his co-anchor and believes she has created a boring shell out of a once bright and fulfilling show.

When Viera left the show, Lauer's worth only increased, and in the eyes of many NBC execs Curry's transition into the co-anchor chair was "rocky."

Ouch!

Girl, you have a crazy journalistic track record, what are you doing soft news for, anyway!? Get back to what you're good at!

    Ive watched TODAY since the Jane Pauley/Bryant Gumbel years….and since Ann became host (versus the news desk) I really have found myself missing it more and more. I just don't take her as a credible news reporter, or commentator for that matter…and the show just got a bit too milk-toast for me.



  2. 2

    The Today Show has not been the same since Merideth left. I like Ann in the News role. She does not have the charisma that Kaite or Meridth had brought to the role. I would hate to see her leave, but she is very awkward as a co-anchor.



  3. 3

    I like her. the little anorexic brunette isn't very interesting



  4. 4

    Not a surprise, when they did their spoof on the royal family and Meredith did a cameo, Matt made a big deal of almost tackling her to the ground. Seemed to be absolutely obvious then that he did not like Ann.



  5. 5

    Ann is a reporter, but she does not have the "It" factor. I have stopped watching the show because you know nothing "out of the ordinary" is going to happen.



  6. 6

    Completely disagree. I think Ann has actually taken the show up a notch or two.



  7. 7

    Please stop saying "womp womp" for fuck sakes. It's one of the gayest things you say. And you say some gay shit.

    SILENCE OF THE LAPDOGS:
    -
    Did you know, under new guidelines approved by the Obama administration, US intelligence can now gather and store information about Americans with no ties to terrorism for up to five years?
    -
    In other news, Matt Lauer asks the tough questions of Christie Brinkley about her divorce.

    Love the Today show, but Ann is Boring!! Love her at the news desk, not as co-host. Got to go. Get someone with personality — like Koda (but would miss her with Kathie Lee). They need to change it, starting to lose interest.



  10. 10

    Re: lovatl – oops meant to say Hoda not Koda. :}

    Ann Curry is HORRIBLE. All that giggling, inappropriate touching, "nuzzling-in." And that stupid whisper voice she does when trying to extract something sensitive from a guest. So f****g uncomfortable to watch. Really, really hate her as an anchor. It appears most guests think she's a nut, too. Her seat should go to Natalie….she's perfection.



  12. 12

    The show is not as good since she is on. She is awkward and should stick to the more serious stories.



  13. 13

    I can't stand her, never could. Hope they can her ass.



  14. 14

    Natalie Morales. OR Contessa Brewer has a lot of personality



  15. 15

    Matt Lauer is a complete asshole. And he's bald, yuck.



  16. 16

    i really can't stand Lauer…he is smug, very arrogant and not a very nice person…and I think Ann is just reacting to that.



  17. 17

    She's not that bad actually, but Savannah Guthrie would be more interesting as a co-anchor with Matt Lauer because she actually shows her personality when she speaks to other people and Ann doesn't.



  18. 18

    I think Ann is a great balance to Matt's snobbish persona. She seems like such a genuine person with a heart. I guess having compassion just doesn't do it for the American viewers.



  19. 19

    We want Natalie!! Ann is by far the WORST!



  20. 20

    If Ann's leaving, so am I. I can't stand Matt Lauer and his balding head - so he wants his girlfriend sitting by him? Welcome to her. The Today Show is sh*tty anyway, I can watch Al Roker on the Weather Channel.



  21. 21

    Ann is a little boring but that is better than being a total d-bag like Matt Lauer. I hate how in his face to face interviews he crosses his legs and and intrudes into their"space"with his leg as a means of trying to "own" them. Totally disrespectful! His attempts at provoking come across as offensive. I don't blame Tom Cruise for losing his cool.

    BTW have you ever noticed how little content there acually is in an hour of "The Today Show" it's all bumpers, teasers and tons of commercials with about 10 minutes ofcontent per hour. For this Laurer is paid Millions a year??? WTF?



  22. 22

    I actually love ann curry! I enjoy watching her every morning! I think shes a spitfire and fun, maybe a bit serious, but that doesn't bother me! I like her!



  23. 23

    Re: Esin Emko – I think you nailed it.



  24. 24

    Sorry to say, but Ann is Major Snoozefest! She's so boring. I've noticed her at times try to be fun and loud, but then she retracts and returns to her low tone of voice. From the beginning, I knew she wasn't a good fit for the role.



  25. 25

    We were faithful Today Show watchers for over 15 years, but once Curry took over as anchor, we switched stations. She is insufferable. She has absolutely no charisma, and no ability to conduct interviews. She is way out of her league in that position. Since when does being around for a long time entitle one to ascend to a co-anchor role on the highest-rated morning show? Whoever put her there is an idiot. She needs to go, and the sooner the better.



  26. 26

    I LOVE ANN! COULDN'T STAND MEREDITH.

    Ann Curry is not good. I have no idea what she's like as a PERSON (and neither do any of you . . .) but at this JOB, she is extremely difficult to watch. She reads insincere and does more talking than listening during her interviews. The "whisper voice" she uses in the sad interviews is very difficult to watch/listen to, and she often tells the interviewee/victim how they "must feel."

    I am not a hater - I just do not like watching her and change the channel when she comes on the show. She was absent the last few shows and I enjoyed it much more!

    I like Ann. I think she's very sweet and the nicest person on the show. I think she's genuine, which none of the others are, and perhaps that is why they are jealous of her. Perhaps she's not relaxed because she knows the others are out to get her? Ann goes to all the crazy places…. hello…Kilimanjaro, Antarctica! She does the most dangerous stunts, I freaking LIKE her!

    Ann Curry is such phony, can't stand her constant gushing over everything, even the weather. Her forced smile & laughing is insufferable & she talks over all the guests. Never really paid that much attention to news anchors until Ann. She's totally irritating!

    I lost all respect for Ann Curry the moment she touched Brad Pitt's face during a Today Show interview on location in Cannes. That crossed a line. No real journalist caresses the face of an interview subject, and the stunned look on Brad Pitt's face suggests he was more than uncomfortable with her gesture. Ann Curry reeks of phoniness and insincerity to me. She was a horrible fit, but I'm sure the show felt obligated to replace Meredith with her. I find Savannah bland and insubstantial, but that's begun to be a good description of The Today Show.

    Re: Nancy16 – Great Nancy's think alike…this is exactly what bothers me about her too. That soft voice and the way she stares at Matt makes me uncomfortable so I can't imagine how he feels. I miss Meredith. :(

    Ann Curry is such a sweet heart. I met her and she's just an overly caring, touchy, mom type of person and that's just her personality. Her personality is not what they should have in the co-anchor spot though. They need a bubbly person that can joke around again.
    But Ann is not horrible! She's fucking awesome when they are "caring" stories, or ones that make you cry…

    I love Ann. a real class act. she should not have to endure such unprofessionalism if there is an issue with her in the anchor seat, there is a way to handle it with integrity. Let's act like respectable adults kids. If she leaves the show entirely, GMA here I come. This show has lost it's finess and professionalism with the way it's handled the leak in the this possible change of anchors. Oh yes, you give Matt a big raise, to feed that big,snotty ego!

    Savannah is not a good choice. Hoda would be the best replacement.

    I've always watched Today Show even when I'm out of the country. I like Ann. She's genuine and caring.
    Matt is snobbish. I really don't care if he stays or not.

    The problem isn't Ann. It's GMA. They're just pointing their fingers at her. Poor Ann.

    I like Deborah Norville's take on the issue.
