Matt Lauer Fired Today In February?!

| Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz


Has America spoken?! Is Matt Lauer's time on morning Television about to expire?!

The Today show is apparently consistently losing viewers to rival show Good Morning America, and rumor has it that IF the show's ratings do not improve by February, Mr. Matt will get the big, shiny AXE!

One insider reveals:

"News executive Alexandra Wallace has told NBC bosses she will have to replace Matt if the ratings continue to tank…

If viewers continue preferring Good Morning America over the TODAY show that revenue will decrease and cuts will have to be made. Matt’s contract pays him $25 million-a-year.

Alexandra has told her bosses if the show isn’t pulling in more viewers by February, she has no alternative but to fire Matt. The replacement is likely to be Willie Geist."

Ooooo sorry dude.

But hey, Matt can't expect that after years of allegedly being a less-than-stellar coworker to your colleagues — something that became blatantly evident during the weeks before Ann Curry left the show — that people are going to continue watching!

No one wants to see a pompous person making them feel awkward in the morning, and lately, Matt's just one big bundle of cringe-worthy moments!

    Matt's going to have to move out of NYC's Dakota Bldg, the Homeowner's Board doesn't allow worthless unemployed mean people to live there; Yoko Ono is an exception, they actually like her "SINGING"….

    Sweeeet….I would go back to watching if his arrogant butt was gone. Put Al on as host. I miss him since I don't watch anymore.

    Yipee! Why do we have to wait until February? Go get em Alexandra Wallace and Don Nash. We ALL, your former loyal viewers, know he was responsible for Ann CUrry's ouster and therefore NEVER wanted him EVER in our familyroom again. SOme more justice for Ann CUrry. Won't ever return to TS after the way Ann was treated but applaude this necessary action. Karma Matt Lauer! And you should implement the Golden Rule in your life.

    They seriously need to start putting actual news stories on this show. I watched for an hour today while getting ready and NO mention of anything but celebrity houses and human interest.

    Let's hope Matt is gone soon. I am positive he was the driving force in getting Ann Curry thrown out. I hope something wonderful comes along for Ann…….a real person,.

    My husband and I LOVED Ann Curry. Ann appeared to be a friendly caring person, and we couldn't understand why she was fired from the Today Show and Matt Lauer is still on the show. We don't like him at all…..need to send him on his way and be done with it; don't wait til February….just get him gone. Don't know how his wife stands him.
