Karma's a bitch, ain't it??
NBC has just fired TODAY executive producer Jim Bell, the genius behind
ethnicity cleansing firing Ann Curry.
In the past few Curryless months it's been clear that it was not the female anchor, but the show's mastermind that caused TODAY's massive ratings decline.
Jim's replacement is NBC News VP Alexandra Wallace — who will be the first woman to helm TODAY in its 60-year history. Yay progress!
This switch-up is especially important to Matt Lauer because, according to a show insider, the veteran anchor will have to take "significant pay cut" if the numbers don't come up.
Here's an idea for ratings gold: Bring Ann back!
