Matt Lauer Was '100% Behind' Ann Curry Leaving Today

| Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

Matt Lauer wanted Ann gones

We knew there was a reason the dynamic between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry was so awkward during that last show!

Matt Lauer will most likely deny this to the grave until he retires, but an insider on The Today Show set says that he "is 100% behind Ann leaving."

Ann must have been fully aware of that fact too because we heard the two were so "icy" toward each other that "when the cameras stopped rolling, Ann wouldn't even look at Matt.”

Now the source confirming Lauer's desire to get rid of Curry is saying that "she refused to speak to him all week."

We bet he's glad that she was replaced by Savannah Guthrie pretty quickly. We hope she has better luck sitting next to him at the desk and that Ann has better luck elsewhere!

    I can't stand Matt Lauer; he's so Glib….

  2. 2

    Duh!! We all knew that already. Tell us something we dont already know. Matt is a piece of poop. Sweep him up and throw him away.

    It's too bad Lauer isn't man enough to just admit it and move on. No one buys his good-guy image, so he may as well just man up for once.

  4. 4

    I rather look at Ann Curry getting old on TV than Matt Lauer getting old on TV.

    Wow. I no longer watch Today because of Matt and Savannah. He's a boring wimp and her voice is so monotone!

    I think this was a huge mistake and a PR nightmare. I haven't watched The Today Show in years, it just isn't fun to watch. GMA is uplifting and a great way to start the day.

    Reason they was so icy toward each other was because they were messing around.

    about your previous article "FDA Approves In-Home HIV Test!":
    no it is not a big step forward .
    HIV infection is not like taking a temperature or checking blood sugars in diabetes.
    This is a way for the company to make lots of money on a disease that is terrible and that needs careful medical evaluation from step one.
    How many people do you think will take the test and keep the result to themselves because they feel too ashamed to confide in anyone? How many suicides will there be? Plus it is not 100% sure.

    All the gentleness is gone. Matt is known to be an ego depressed bastard

    Matt is a dirt bag. I lost all respect for him.

  11. 11

    he's a smug arrogant asshole…way too much money for such an ass.
    show drops to 3rd place b4 end of year…then what?

  12. 12

    I like Ann better!

    Everybody on planet earth knows that. She's the only female who had the dignity not to sleep with scuzz bag Matt. Anyone he approves as his co host is going to get the job because she slept with him.

    Matt is gross. Too bad NBC can't figure that out.

  15. 15

    Matt needs to be the next to go… The show is just so stale. The only ones on there that seem enthusiastic on there are Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, and Kathie Lee Gifford, Tamryn Hall. The rest don't give a damn.

    At least Ann walked away with ten million dollars. It's just sad because you actually saw her work hard over the years to get where she is at.

    When I first heard that Ann was getting the boot I thought it was Matt's doing.I like Ann and hope she finds happiness in another job.Good luck to Ann.

    it's super embarrassing people think AIDS is caused by HIV when there is NO relation and anyone with HIV can recover on their own. AIDS is still a mystery of sorts. HIV is like any other flu bug

    I think that Matt Lauer should be ashamed of himself and his behavior. The reason, I believe, behind Today's lagging ratings is his tired delivery, his balding haircut, and his frequent absences from the show. I really wish he would just check out already. Today needs to get rid of Matt Lauer.

  20. 20

    I can see by the comments that I am in the minority here but I think Ann sucked as an anchor. She seemed very sweet and hard working but she stammered through interviews and was very awkward. Good luck to her…

  21. 21

    Haven't watched the show in years, when I do occasionally tune into a morning program (which is not often) it is GMA for me.

    Re: Jackay00

    #1- that has nothing to do with the article
    #2- um….wtf? I'm not sure what crackpot news source you got that from, but it terrifies me that you're trying to spread false knowledge like that around

    Re: Karen62 – You are 100% right.Big mistake,not more Today show for us after all this years

    Thank you Mr.Lauer for making my dream come true,i'm set for life with my 10 million dollars and i don't have to sit next to you any longer.Who said life was easy.

  25. 25

    Sure! Let's put ALL the blame on Ann Curry. I think Matt was worse and should've been let go a long time ago. I'm tired of hearing his monotone voice that sounds like Ben Stein…ZZzzzzzz. I end up changing the channel because he's boring. Of course it's not his fault. Let's replace a female with a younger female but not the bald old man. NBC could've handled things with more grace too on her last day. Not surprised they didn't…look how they treated Conan.

    I love Ann as a person and news person, but she has no personality with this former assingnment. She just does not fit in. But, Matt is an institution that needs to be done away with quickly prior NBC losing all its viewers. His egotism is too much for me to look at - gone is Today - anything else would be better.

    I stopped watching the Today show when Katie dissed President H.W.Bush on camera. That was the last classless straw for me. All of their "talent" on that show are useless brainless suits, that know less about reporting than my dog. They are simply news readers. Which is why I ditched Today years ago. I thought Matt aka Monotone Baldy had retired by now.
