    its a bitch to find a morning show I like. Since Meredith left, i just don't care for the Today show (because of Ann). I HATE CBS's morning show. Gayle King blows and that roundtable crap they use is stupid. Good Morning America is turning into Entertainment Tonight with Lara Spencer. its far too fluffy for me.

    I usually watch an hour of local morning shows, and then Will and Grace. Sad.

    Well, she is on this morning too, and maybe I am reading far too much into this, but she doesn't really look good. She looks rattled or like she has been crying or something....

    I could truly use a life already.

    Hahahahaha - I love you Lynnie! I agree she looked exhausted this morning. I will say that my level of respect for her has risen since she has the guts to keep showing up with all that is going on. Most "stars" would have not shown as they expected. I still don't want her as a co-anchor but this does speak to her character as a person overall.

    I don't watch any of the morning shows unless they are being made fun of on the Soup but I feel for Ann Curry.

    I feel for her, too. Showing up to work every day thinking that your employers don't want you and the public doesn't like you takes a lot of backbone.

    There's Soledad O'Brien's show on CNN. But it's another roundtable format.

    There is CNBC's Squawkbox, which is roundtable format. And all about money. Even if they were talking about the Big O, they would somehow tie it to Pfizer and the performance of Viagra sales.

    There is Fox & Friends. Hahahahahahahahahahahaa!!!!! I Can't believe I just said that!

    do you guys think the today show will see any negative backlash from the way they have been handling this? to me (admittedly i am an outsider, i don't watch morning news shows), this seems kind of rude and crass. and this matt guy seems like a pushy jerk to actively campaign to get rid of this lady.

    With all this, I wonder if she will show up Monday morning.

    I don't like her manner but I don't like to see anyone treated this way. I think she is over her head, acts way too earnest and was a terrible interviewer. I head to CNN or MSNBC.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    i grew up watching today, and have continued to watch.

    when ann took over, my initial thought was that she didn't fit as anchor. in a way i couldn't figure out why she wanted the job bc she seemed more at home covering issues of substance.

    in recent weeks, i gotta say....i am convinced that matt does deserve a lot of the blame for this. i think he's such an arrogant prick he couldn't handle that she's more intelligent than he is, and in response, i think she's been nervous (thus the stammering) and tried to dumb down so as not to outshine her sexist, asshole co-host.

    it kills me to say this on account of i've had a long crush on matt lauer. but damn....i would bet money it's the truth. he's a friggin' douche, he didn't want her there to start with, and damn if he didn't manipulate the entire situation to have her ousted.

    if they do replace her by the olympics, i think the show will be fucked. far too man people remember what a talented journalist she truly is. her fans didn't like her because of her hosting job. they liked her because of her voluminous amount of other work. and, i'm guessing, they admired her class. she's sure showing it now. the ones who look like assholes are matt, natalie, al (bc i have heard he's NOT such a nice guy and therefore can see him stabbing her in the back), and the execs.

    they didn't give her a chance. they deserve blowback.

    I believe they have handled as well as they could. They will keep her on board and put her back into a role that is a better fit for her talents. Matt has a great rep with the staff on the show. They find him to be funny, caring and committed to keeping them in 1st place. Ann was bringing down the ratings so I do not blame Matt for wanting her out. I do not believe it has anything to do with her intelligence vs Matt's. They get paid to get ratings. End of story.

    only an anntard could say this because anyone based in reality knows she stammered and yammered all the years she's been on the news desk (hello, good morning, good morning, hi, hello!). no way in hell she's smarter than matt.

    I think no one is to blame but Ann. This was the wrong job for her and she never did it well.
    If you are doing your job well and one team member is pulling down the others,you'd want that person gone,too. Or at least I would.
    Her personality is not suited to the Host gig. She is not a natural chatty person and has too much reserve to overcome that. Actually,I don't think she should even try, it is just not there. There are so many things she is good at, just not this.
    I do not feel she was shot down by her work pals here. She shot herself in the foot loads of times. She will be kept on by NBC,she will not end up a street person. This is just another step in her career.
