Morale is low behind the scenes of TODAY and we certainly understand why!
This is the network that botched their exclusive coverage of the Olympics to an extent that #NBCfail was trending on Twitter!
But besides that, their once tremendously popular morning show, TODAY, is under a lot of scrutiny and slipping in ratings Good Morning America!
Mostly, though, the crew seems tired of Matt Lauer.
They know now it was a mistake to replace Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie and they feel like machiavellian Matt is the man responsible.
"The staffers of the TODAY show miss Ann tremendously and feel it was a mistake to replace her with Savannah. Ann had been part of the TODAY show for over 15 years, and her send off was just horribly executed."
Everyone who owns a TV and wakes up before noon concurs!!
The source continued:
"Morale is extremely low and something is going to need to change very quickly before they can get the TODAY show back in first place for good."
In fact, it looks like Al Roker wasn't exactly a lone ranger with his clever dig against his co-anchor.
PLENTY of the show's staffers grow tired of Matt's missteps!
The source confirmed:
"The crew would LOVE Ann back on set, some have even suggested privately that Matt Lauer take a long vacation and see how the ratings would shake out in that scenario."
Now that sounds like must see TV!
