    Did Ann & Matt always have shitty chemistry when she used to fill-in for Meredith or did it just start when she became co-host?

    ^^Rumor has it that Matt, when he re-signed, either asked for Ann to be replaced or had descretion as to who was co-anchoring w/him, and that wouldn't include Ann. Or something like that.

    But only a rumor. I'll be glad for her to see the door.

    Wow! I didn't know she was hated this much. I usually watch Morning Joe. Joe bitches about everything but he amuses me. I never watch Today. Ann was working there before Meredith left. They knew what she was like. If she was so terrible, why did they agree to let her co-anchor?

    While The Today Show is pruning, they should take the time to cut that lushy hack Kathie Lee off. She's a menace.

    My husband and I were talking about this while watching The Today Show this morning....he thinks both Matt & Ann should go, but since Matt ain't going anywhere, he thinks that chick from HLN's Morning Express, Robin Meade or something--would work well w/Matt. He thinks they need some livening up. I agree, but not sure who could do that. They should definitely dump Hoda/Kathie Lee--they aren't fun or entertaining and just talk about the same exact shit that's already been discussed to death the first 7 hours of the show.

    I almost hope they make Natalie Morales the co-anchor.......just to make some heads explode.

    Report: 'Today' to drop Ann Curry

    Ann Curry: Here 'Today,' gone tomorrow?

    The New York Times reports that Curry, who replaced Meredith Vieira as co-anchor on NBC's morning show "Today" last year, is on her way out, with a decision coming as early as next week.

    According to the Times, NBC executives are negotiating with Curry in an effort to find a different position for her, possibly as a foreign correspondent. The Times' Brian Stelter writes that Curry, who is reluctant to give up the position that she assumed a mere year ago, has hired attorney Robert Barnett, who represented Christiane Amanpour during her exit from ABC News' "This Week," to represent her in the negotiations.

    Barnett has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.

    "She got her dream job, and she doesn't want to let it go," one source told the Times.

    The negotiations reportedly began several weeks ago.

    A spokeswoman for NBC declined to comment.

    One source told the Times that the network is hoping to complete Curry's departure by the Summer Olympics, which kick off in July, so the network -- which is airing the Olympics -- can move forward to the Games with a clean slate.

    "They feel real pressure to get it done by the Olympics," the individual said.

    If NBC does decide to replace Curry on "Today," concerns about waning ratings could be at the heart of it. In April, "Good Morning America" beat "Today" in total viewership for a full week, the first time that "GMA" could claim such a victory in 16 years.

    I'm wondering if NBC won't pull Katie back into this, especially since she's not really doing much at CBS. They didn't mind dumping Conan for Jay when ratings slipped, and I'm thinking they might re-install Katie for real.

    Ann will be gone with a graceful exit by July 1. She will get a nice role, where she belongs, doing pieces for Dateline and some Today Show segments. Don't be surprised if she leaves NBC as fast as she can once all contracts and non-competes are satisfied. Ann scored well with viewers in her previous role on the show and many viewers felt she had been screwed when they didn't pick her to replace Katie. Once she got her chance, the viewer polls changed and she has not been well received as seen in the ratings.

    They would love to have Katie back but it is not an option. She is signed with ABC and has a new show starting in Sept.

    I fear it will be Savannah and, IMO, that would be another huge mistake. She is not cute and perky like Katie, or funny and playful like Meredith. As much as we may hate to admit it, the public still wants to see the female counter part as less serious than Matt. They want the female to compliment him but not overshadow him.
