Like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football, NBC just whiffed again!
In the past year, the flailing network needlessly torpedoed Ann Curry's career, completely bumbled the coverage of the Olympics, and even announced the premature death of
astronaut rock legend Neil Young!
Replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with the younger Jimmy Fallon is just about the only thing they did right!!
…Or did they?!

Well a source is saying Ann feels "vindicated," but is fed up with the drama:

A staffer revealed to Stelter:

But, but… Sliding Doors!
Star magazine calculated the 20 Most Hated Celebrities in Hollywood and we were STUNNED to learn Gwyneth Paltrow is at the top of everyone's sh*t list!!!
Sure, being blonde and beautiful and rich and successful and always having the best seat at a Coldplay concert will earn you the ire of plenty, but number one?!
Haters gonna hate, we suppose!
The rest of the inclusions are less difficult to understand

For the past couple of weeks it feels like it's been Matt Lauer vs. The World. But apparently there's at least one person out there willing to stick up for him!
The Today show's executive producer Don Nash rushed to the aid of the highly scrutinized anchor and said the show would suffer without him.
Matt has been under heavy fire recently for multiple incidents, including a controversial interview that featured sound bytes from Jerry Sandusky, and some are even putting the blame on him for the Today show's drop in ratings.
But Don is hoping to clear the air and says he has no plan on getting rid of Matt. In fact, he says everybody LOVES him:
