Matt Lauer Bans The Today Show Crew From Appearing On Piers Morgan!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsPiers Morgan


We guess even though even though the general public - and even some of his fellow staffers - aren't too happy with him, HE is STILL calling the shots around the set of The Today Show!

Even though the entire cast was invited to appear on Piers Morgan Tonight a week after their competition besting them in the ratings, Good Morning America, did so, it was apparently Matt Lauer who once again decided that NO ONE would be sitting down with the Brit on his CNN show…all because he didn't want to be asked about being behind the firing of Ann Curry!

An insider explains:

"Producers contacted the executive producers of The TODAY Show to discuss the possibility of having Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales and Al Roker appear on Piers Morgan's show as the cast of Good Morning America was on his last week. Matt told the executive producers he didn't think it was a good idea for them to appear on Piers' show because he didn't want to get asked about Ann Curry. Ann is turning out to be a thorn in Matt's side and he thinks it's unfair he has been portrayed as being responsible for her being fired from the show. Matt doesn't want to do any press for the time being and feels the show has nothing to gain by doing group interviews, so the invitation was turned down. [He is] hoping that coverage of the presidential political conventions will put TODAY back on top in the ratings. It really irks him that since the Olympics, GMA has beaten his show in the ratings."

Hey! He can be irked all he likes, but actions have consequences!

And we think one such consequence is the sour taste he left in viewers' mouths after the mess he caused this summer!

Frankly, we doubt he was worried about Piers questioning him about Ann Curry as he was about what Al Roker might have to say about the entire debacle!

We don't buy NBC's statements about his "under the bus" comments for a SECOND!

What do U think?? Who else is curious to see how this all plays out?

    Gosh you need to proof read, your writing is shocking!

    Comcast who bought NBC needs to do a complete over hall of The Today Show. I hope CBS beats them in ratings also. It would be so funny if they fall into 3rd place.

    Get rid of all of them except Al Roker. Who is NBC blaming for the falling ratings now?

    Success sucks it ruins quality of life while delivering status. What's the point?

    It's well documented how sloppy Matt Lauer is in his personal and "professional" life and how Matt's peen salutes every woman he's ever been around. Wonder if Matt was inappropriate with Ann Curry and his ego couldn't take her rejection? Just saying. That would explain Matt's wrath against Ann. Ann Curry is much more attractive and sexy than shiny headed Matt Lauer.

    Ann Curry sucked, no denying that. She was horrible. BUT…who the fuck does this guy think he is?! I hope he suffers the exact same fate as Curry. They need a total clean sweep and to start fresh because GMA is better by a longshot!

    So Matt has now changed job titles from lame talk show host to dictator.

  11. 11

    does anyone really care about that arrogant shit???

  12. Shen li says – reply to this


    Laughable! Mr Dictator w/have what's coming to him!
    He indeed will reap what he sow! Guilt is written all over
    him! Truth be told once again!

    Until Lauer AND Guthrie are gone, I'll be watching GMA. Or does NBC not care if its public is worth listening to. Or maybe it would cost NBC too much money to buy out Laures contract!!?

  14. 14

    I would pay to watch Matt lauer squirm! I hate him after what he did to Ann Curry!
    I stand firm in my refusal to ever watch The Today Show EVER again, as long as that asshole is one the show! I will not ever read the guide to see who is on the show…………..I am surprised at my self, I am not on who usually holds a grudge, but this grudge is NEVER going away!

  15. Linda says – reply to this


    Matt Lauer? Payback is a B_ _ch as he is finding out now. Time for someone to stick a pin in that over inflated ego fold him up and put him away, again IMHO.

  16. Sandra Daeschler says – reply to this


    You know I never cared for Matt Lauer on the today show! He comes across as the superior being on the show .It appears that everyone else on the show is afraid to say the wrong thing in his presence! "Ugh" can't stand him and Savannah is a conceided power freak! There was nothing wrong with Ann Curry except Matt made here nervous! Matt needs to go! He is a male ____ _ _ g!!

  17. pinny stillman says – reply to this


    matt is a mutt………i hope he dies a horrible death…oh yea, right after ann takes over his seat and his ho takes ALL HIS MONEY AND SUITS……..YEA

  18. MattsGottaGo says – reply to this


    Matt need to be fired, and quickly! I too won't watch the Today Show until he's been fired. I've been adding to the winning numbers of GMA since they fired Ann.

  19. Goldengurl says – reply to this


    I watched the Today Show since I was a teen. I'm 65 now, and after all those years, I found out how easy it is to "stop on a dime" and switch to Good Morning America. The way Ann Curry was treated was SHOCKING!! Cruel. If they ever replace Lauer and Guthrie I 'may' consider watching again, but in the meantime I'm learning how informative and fun the Other morning shows are. CBS is good too, as well as HLN's morning news. All three are way better than the "Today Show". !

    Re: Jan – I wish that there was a real competitive alternative to Comcast/Xfinity here in Baltimore City, MD. I would drop Comcast/Xfinity like a hot potato if their was.

  21. UB says – reply to this


    Not surprised he turned down that interview for "the gang" so instead, I see they have co-opted Jay Leno into having Ann Curry's replacement (Savannah who?) as a guest tonight. Gee whiz, if people only got to know her they'd forget all about the public execution of Ann Curry that was carried out on national television. Bullsh*t. Haven't watched Today since that day and I'm glad their ratings are still falling.
