  1. 1

    BIG MISTAKE getting rid of Ann. I will never watch that show again after what they did to her. Lauer is nothing but an aging, bald, arrogant loser. The mad has 0% sex appeal and absolutely no personality. They let the WRONG person go. Karma sucks, Lauer! Roker said it all….they sure did throw Ann under the bus. :(

    Although I never believe any story that begins with "a source said", it's a safe assumption that since there's widespread disrespect for Matt from the viewers who don't actually know him at all (as shown by declining Today show ratings, public backlash against him, etc), it must be worse for those who have to work with him day-to-day. His arrogance & smugness comes through the tv screen loud & clear - it must be beyond annoying to have to be in his presence every day. So while I don't believe that a "source" said this, I do believe that the environment on the Today show must be tense because of Matt and his massive ego.

    Guthrie has zero charisma or charm. If I passed her on the street, I would not tell her apart from adam, she is so utterly cardboard, plain, boring and forgettable. Ann Curry was one of the greatest assets that dumb balding fuck ever had to coast off of. He is a charlatan, and without real viable talent, his lack of skill is shining through. The charade is up. He is Geraldo, via the 1980's, at best.

    I've always thought Ann was a nice person, but not meant for the lead co anchor chair. She was was so painful to watch every morning. I love Savannah, so natural in every situation and a smart cookie. I'm starting to think however, maybe its Matt that needs replacing. I've always LOVED him, but as they say, "if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you have always got" so maybe change things up even more by getting rid of Matt?!

    Good. That's his Karma for getting Ann fired and making her cry.

    Matt is just a pint sized swinging dick. . . And a huge prick.

    I would take Robin Roberts over the entire crew at NBC. ABC Good Morning America is the best TV in the morning by far!!!!

    Matt Lauer is an stuck up douche bag.

    Do not watch much TV but when my computer crashed two weeks ago I watced GMA among other shows - good crew.

  10. 10

    I think they need to stop blaming one person for the ratings. Did they ever think that GMA's content is just better than theirs?

    The reason that Ann Curry was forced out is that she was freakin' horrendous to watch. NBC's polls showed that their viewers did not like her. While she may be a great legitimate journalist she is an awful morning show host. Perez: you are a fuckin' idiot and I hope you rot.

    I'm proud of Al Roker for finally showing some loyalty to Ann Curry. It's about time. It was a disgrace how they sent her packing and as a former viewer, (I now watch GMA) I hope the ratings continue to fall. Who are Matt and NBC going to blame for the decline in ratings now?

  13. 13

    Maybe, just maybe someone up there on the NBC throne may see the real truth here. How is little spoiled brat Matty going to feel when he finally gets the boot. He can finally see what it feels like to be shit on like Ann was. I hope he gets kicked to the curb and fast!!

    Can't everyone see what's about to happen? Have you seen this really, really HOT, young guy that temps as anchor sometimes on the Today Show, lately? He was on this week. I don't know his name, but I've seen him temp a handful of times. HE is going to get Matt's job and Matt will be out! I'm going to go on the Internet after I post this and see if I can find out that guy's name. He looks like that guy on, "Revenge." The actor who plays Madeline Stowe's son, except the anchor on the Today Show is even better looking than that actor. Matt Lauer is a very smart man. He must know that the powers that be are slowly, but surely edging that guy into Matt's position. And, by the way, Ann Curry is a beautiful, smart, kind, nice woman, but she SUCKED BIG TIME as co-anchor. The only way Matt would be able to keep his job is if they were to bring back Katie Couric. Their pairing was simple MAGICAL! No other network co-anchors had that kind of chemistry and smarts and senses of humor like they had. It was must-see-TV back then.

    I have NOT watched The Today show for a while now! When they fired Ann Curry, I also left! If they get rid of Matt "The Snake" that would be a move in the right direction! Bringing back Ann! That would make me tune in every day!

    In all honesty, Matt is past his prime, he sees this, his audience sees this. As unfortunate as it may seem, it is just time for Matt to take his final bow, and give someone else a shot.

    Re: chrisbee1
    have to agree with you
    I switched over once NBC got rid of Ann
    and I have absolutely no regrets
    they have a great morning team at ABC with terrific chemistry
    and they have perfect balance between light and serious and credible
    never gave CBS a try- don't see how Gayle King fits into it all- other than the executives thinking she would bring Oprah viewers to morning TV

    I stopped watching because kathy lee and hoda are slobbering idiots and annoying as hell. Why would i waste my time watching thier moronic fluff when i can find real news on bbc.com, cnn.com, npr, pbs, aljazeera.net english and others. I dont need a couple of washed up hags telling how to keep my man happy or that asparagus makes your pee smell funny……

    Re: delphidolly – I might take a look if they got rid of those two nitwits, along with matt, a diva bitch in his owe right, and brought back ann, and paired her with jane pauly

    Speaking as a long time TODAY viewer I disagree with a lot of you. Ann was absolutely the worst interviewer ever. Cringe-worthy. I swithed to GMA because of her and now I'm glad she is gone. I don't blame Matt, I blame the nit-wit who promoted Ann right out of a job. She worked her way up the ladder and rather than insult her by bringing in someone to replace Meridith, they promoted her because she had been there a long time. Not a good reason. She was in over her head. The fact that she seems like a "nice" person is not relevant.

    I guess I am the only person who thought that Ann Curry was over the top and quite frankly annoying as co-host. But I am also the person who cheered when Jay Leno took back the Tonight Show!!!

    So when you ask the question today…"Where In The World Is Matt Lauer?" the answer would be "Hopefully out of a job!"

    I'm glad Al made the comment apparently about them throwing Ann under the bus, good for him. I'll be back to the Today show as soon as they fire Matt, and hopefully in a rude manner. If they got Ann back, I'd be happy to watch (as long as Matt is gone).

    Meanwhile, I'm watching GMA. I even saw Lenny in the audience there!

    Re: cariRe: lil ang – No! NO! You are not the ONLY one who thought Ann Curry was a HORRIBLE interviewer!!! She was like nails on a chalkboard! Her "un huhs" and "aww"s during VERY friggin interview made me just cringe and run to get ready for work! Her standard, "How does this make you feel?" type comment made me want to go thru the TV and strangle her!!! Let's see, my child just died in a tragic accident…DUH! you stupid idiot!
    I LOVE Matt and I really like Savannah, Natalie and Al. I don't think Al made that comment in response to Ann leaving. It was an off the cuff comment about something else and he was trying to be funny.
    Glad Ann is gone! She took her money and is definitely singing, "Don't cry for me Today Show viewers". (Insert Madonna singing Evita! :)

    All I know is today, Aug 28th, NBC sent Matt to Florida to cover the RNC and Snoozannah "NoTopLip-Plain as unflavored Oatmeal" Guthrie felt free, woohoo! She put back on her high, high heels since Leprechaun Matt was away. Is it true he was caught cheating with Whitney Houston's stepsister? I'm hopeful the NBC execs will swallow their pride, eat a heaping helping of crow and bring Ann Curry back to save their A$$es.
