Have you guys been watching the Today show lately? Because it has actually been pretty
It might have something to do with Hoda Kotb, who is temporarily filling in for Savannah Guthrie and has somehow done the impossible and made Matt Lauer likable-ish!
So naturally we have to ask, is she the answer to all of the Today show's problems?
According to an insider at the show, Hoda is ADORED by the crew and her chemistry with the controversial anchor reminds them of the golden days when Katie Couric was still around:

It looks like the Today show could be losing one of their hosts, but it's probably not the one you're thinking of!
Hoda Kotb's contract expires this fall, and aparently she's been having meetings with other studios to let them know that she might be lookin' for a new job soon!
A source says the host isn't looking to leave the show, but they also didn't deny that she's been chatting with other people:

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:

Say it ain't so, Glee!
It looks like after a few seasons of being untouchable, the show is starting to cool down a little. It might not be cause for alarm, but more people are DVRing it instead of making it a must watch to talk about the next day.

But, we aren't losing hope!
