Filed under: TV NewsAnderson Cooper

matt lauers boss sticks up for him

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:

Matt Lauer just can't seem to catch a break lately!

The anchor was already under heavy scrutiny for the firing of Ann Curry and the Today show's plummeting ratings, and we're guessing his highly controversial interview with filmmaker John Ziergler concerning Jerry Sandusky isn't helping him win any popularity contests!

But it sounds like some good might come out of this ugly mess, as we're hearing NBC is reaching out to Anderson Cooper to replace Matt!

A source close to the situation claims that the deal could be coming fairly soon, saying:

The super controversial Jerry Sandusky interview aired yesterday on the Today show, and after it received a whole mess of backlash, anchor Matt Lauer thinks that NBC set him up for FAILURE!!

Aww man.

Lauer hosted the 30-minute segment, which featured filmmaker John Ziergler and recordings from the child molester, and while he was interviewing Ziegler, the host looked like he was in an agonizing state.

According to reports, Matt feels that producers PLAYED him:

ann curry robin roberts well wishes forbidden nbc enemy

What the hell is wrong with NBC?

Not EVERYTHING has to be a competition! If Ann Curry wants to wish Robin Roberts well while she's fighting an insanely scary medical problem, well, she should be allowed to. Without your permission. Regardless if you feel like she was trying to "aid the enemy."

That's so offensively asinine that we're about to barf. Aiding the enemy?? REALLY??

Here's what the report said:

Ann Curry Was MORE POPULAR With Today Show Viewers Than Matt Lauer! ALL THE DEETS From The EXPLOSIVE New York Magazine Article HERE!

matt new york article

It's pretty bad when the actual, behind-the-scenes drama is even WORSE than what's being reported in the news!

But unfortunately, in the case of much-reported-upon, devastating drama on The Today Show that left Ann Curry fired, Matt Lauer looking like a real piece of work, and Good Morning America knocking them out of the ratings for the first time in 16 years, it wasn't just bad - it was a downright CLUSTERF-CK.

On top of the news that came to the light this morning which revealed the widely-criticized news anchor fooled ABC into negotiating a deal he never planned to take to secure his position at NBC, as well as a pay-day and assurance that Ann would get let go, the EXPLOSIVE new article in New York Magazine delves even deeper in the complex back-stabbing, paranoia, and shady negotiations that went on at 30 Rockefeller Center…and it ain't pretty!

For instance, even though Lauer, Today Show executive producer Jim Bell, and several NBC affiliates thought Curry was the problem, there was CLEAR internal research that showed that audiences agreed it was MATT who was the less appealing one, as he came off as "aloof, a little bit holier-than-thou and pompous.”

And despite his attempts to appear sad and regretful about the way everything went down,

Well it definitely doesn't look like loyalty is one of Matt Lauer's strengths!

Since the shocking firing of the much beloved Ann Curry, the Today show has been a bit of a mess and Matt has been at the center of all of the drama!

With the show struggling with ratings, there were rumors swirling that NBC's longtime anchor might also be getting the axe. Apparently he heard the gossip, because now we're hearing that he was thisclose to joining ABC!

A source close to the situation says Matt panicked when he heard the rumor that Ryan Seacrest might
