    The US commentators (I think it's Bob, Meredith, and Matt?) suck. Beyond suck. Bob's not usually terrible that I can remember (maybe I just forgot), but coverage sucks tonight. Some of the nations get about half a second with their information and people flashed on the screen and then on to next one. And other countries get blathered on about for an entire minute with completely pointless and clueless commentary.

    I'm sorta over Matt Lauer since that Ann Curry debacle. I don't know. Did The Today Show ratings pick up with Savannah Guthrie? I noticed they didn't feel she was good enough to do the games with Matt and felt they had to bring Meredith back.

    Meredith was already contracted to do the Olympics before Ann was ousted. Svannah is there reporting through. The whole Today Show team is there. I don't believe the ratings have increased with Savannah though. They probably will for the next few weeks because NBC has the Olympic coverage. The real test will be to see where they stand after they come back to reality.

    Well, that makes sense, I guess they thought it was Ann that couldn't handle it. I haven't been terribly impressed with Savannah in the last few weeks. Maybe the damage has been done to the show and there's no going back? I bet Matt will be so pissed if his asking price tanks.

    Loved Mr. Bean.

    And I usually think of myself as fairly well-educated but now I feel like an idiot because I've never heard of the country of Nauru. I had to Google it.

    Are you implying that I wish I had that stunning ensemble?

    How about those Czech Republic boots?

    We need some pics in the style threads on this event.
