Is Guthrie Out Of Tune With Her Audience?? GMA Destroys Today For Her Official Debut

| Filed under: TV News

Today's Savannah Guthrie Is Out Of Tune

Looks like the news crew has a bit o' lash on their backs!

We can't say for sure whether Today fans are flocking over to Good Morning America because they're disappointed with Matt Lauer for throwing Ann Curry under a moving train but we do know that fans ARE leaving!

Savannah Guthrie and Matt's official welcome party was Monday morning and the ratings, as it turns out, were quite surprising.

GMA crushed Today in both the key 24-54 demographic and in overall viewers!

This is GMA's first Monday win in both categories in OVER FIVE YEARS!

Let's be frank — the Savannah and Matt show is off to a disastrous start!

Still, they're talented news-anchors. We're curious to see when and how the duo can rebound!

What's UR take? Why R U tuning out??

    I'm tuning out. For good. I like GMA. I really liked Ann, but I really DISlike Matt and that is the crux of it.

    I don't know why but Savannah Guthrie annoys the heck out of me. There is just something about her, and I can't place it. I think they should have gotten Hoda Kotb. She's more enjoyable to watch.

    Everyone who didn't realize Matt Lauer was a douchebag before now understands after how he acted towards Anne. Robin Roberts of GMA is so much nicer and has a better personality for TV.

    I have never liked Matt Lauer, and I like him even less after what he did to Ann Curry. GMA's anchors are real people, intelligent and likable, especially Robin Roberts.

    I love Ann Curry but not enough to watch Matt Lauer. I've never heard of Savannah Guthrie. Bring Ann back and replace Lauer.

    I was a Today show, and Ann Curry, fan for years. I've been wanting Ann to take the lead since Katie left. I was heartbroken when they got rid of her after only one year. So every morning I watch the local news on NBC and at 7am I switch to GMA. I don't even really watch it but I want to give them the ratings in the hopes that the Today show execs will realize how badly they screwed the pooch.

    Doesn't make sense - why would anyone pick a great cast including a strong woman (who is going through cancer-like treatments) and a smart co-host, including a group of intelligent yet very likable people over a boring ensemble lead by a cheating & cocky husband? Makes NO sense…
    For real - The Today Show lost the likability factor after this. I never watched it for warm fuzzies, besides when Meredith was on. She was like that great Mom.

    CBS has a very different set-up, and an EXTREMELY well respected anchor. Charlie Rose? Come on! He's great and everyone likes him.

    GMA is just such a great cast. If anything, they know how to pick a group of people.

    I don't have any idea what Matt Lauer does to earn $30 Million a year, but I do know that he, and the rest of the honchos at NBC did their reputations no favors by the way they handled the Ann Curry debacle. It was classless! I happen to like Ann Curry but even if I didn't, the whole "who is Matt sleeping with now and how he wanted his g/f to be the co-anchor, and his wife threatening to leave him if she is" etc…. well i think that these people are really not as important as they think they are. GMA gets my vote and I am tuning out of Today for good. I'm tired of these stupid celebrities who think they are so important when in the scheme of things, they're nothings.
    I have to applaud Ann Curry for the way she handled herself with class and grace.

    Re: jg610 – I also wanted to add that personally I think Matt Lauer is completely over-rated. The group at GMA are far more entertaining and interesting to watch. I think Today threw alot of money out the window with his new contract. Besides, who wants to watch a guy every morning who can't keep it in his pants?

    that's what they get! hope u are listening NBC daytime execs…

    u treat ur "family" like shit, and the audience will notice and make their opinion known

    I have no idea why Matt Lauer is so lauded? He is old, frumpy, uninteresting, and not a face to wake up. I really like Lara Spencer. GMA is so much more upbeat and lively which is what you need first thing in the morning. Not dowdy dude Lauer!!! Get rid of him and watch the ratings soar!!!!

    I don't really know who this chick is but she's not easy on the eye….her features are too severe and sharp and she's kinda ugly….her lips are too thin and mean looking.

    The "Tpday" show has been boring for years. But when Ann left, it was all over. It didn't help to learn that Matt is a hound dog who has screwed anything that walks (and sucks). I heard Natalie Morales is the Rielle Hunter of NBC and has his kid.

    Re: GM – Savannah has no upper lip.



  17. 17

    ah karma…what they really should have done is pair Savannah Guthrie with Ann Curry and get rid of Lauer…then they would have something good…but it's too late now.

    YEAH!!!!!

    I have watched the TODAY show for years, but can say that I specifically tuned in to GMA this week instead to help send a message to the producers that they made a big mistake. I tune into the news in the morning to hear the world and national headlines in the background while I'm getting ready for the day. I really don't care that much about who it is relaying those stories. However, the way the execs & Matt Lauer have acted behind the scenes has definitely lowered my opinion of the show and I have no qualms about switching to GMA.

    Matt Lauer is an ass. He's gotten quite arrogant in his advancing age and frankly, I can't stand to watch him. He's the one that should have gone.

    I don't understand why a normal society would want to promote a phony culture as an ideal society. I've noticed too much phony grins on TV shows for no apparent reason. You got magazines photoshop covers to make people look thinner. Whatever happen to normal and natural? Is the Kartrashians, Jersey whores and the unnatural joker grin our ideal future lifestyle? I hope not. By the way The Today Show and even Good Morning/Afternoon America is so unbearable to watch is due to having same old segments, but the main reason is being over acting majority of the time.

    I'm mad at NBC for their lack of respect to Ann. They barely even gave her a goodbye and Savannah got a montage. Plus, I like Robin Roberts.



  23. 23

    Re: Esin Emko – Totally agree! I think that would have been great and I think our society can handle two female leads at this point. Judging from the comments, I don't think many would miss Matt Lauer. Or maybe Hoda with Ann just because it seems both Ann and Savannah have "soft" energy and you need someone to counterbalance.

    I hope Ann Curry is laughing her ass off right now. It was insane for them to drop Ann. She was perfect and put in her time. GMA is great and loyal too.



  25. 25

    GMA all the way!!!! Matt Lauer is lame and has no likeability factor what so ever!!! Lara Spencer is awesome.

    Re: GM – same here, that show can go straight to hell without Ann.

    I think you should replace Matt Lauer. He acts like he thinks he somebody he's NOT. I don't like him at all now for the way he seemed so cruel to Ann. He looked like he was smiling when she was crying and it was like he was laughing on the inside. I can't stand to see him on TV…..maybe other people feel like me. He's a nightmare to me!!!

    I'm glad the Today Show is going down the drain! What Matt Lauer, et al, did to Ann Curry is unconscionable and the consequences of such behavior is what you get. I blame everyone on that couch who sat there as Ann cried her eyes out. Matt's fake … I care about you was surely seen by Ann. That's why she moved over as he tried to put his arm around her. That's why, as a loyal consumer of the Today Show, I'm going to GMA.

    Bye, Bye

    Please, out with Savannah Guthrie, she looks very distress. Today needs someone hip and vibrant like Maria, the one who perform "Dancing with the Stars" she was pretty, young and funny!!!!

    Maria Menounus would be perfect for the today show. BYE BYE Savannah and Matt

    Re: themundane – I agree, Matt Lauer must be in male menopause, does he think he's infallabe, I hope they replace him, he thinks he's irreplaceable! Also, I think Guthrie is soooo in love with herself it's nausating to listen to her!!!
