    Today is done, get rid of matt laurer the gay boy.

    I seen him holding hands with a man on 3rd ave and 71st

  • cc

    Hope it’s the beginning of a huge downfall for the Today Show.

  • RHONJd

    Go GMA! I hope the afternoon version does well too!

  • Karen C

    Today is getting what it deserves. Ann Curry wasn’t the problem. Matt is the problem. Their ratings are going to fall bigtime.

  • richard


  • DAZZ

    Ann will get another Emmy before ‘Today’ gets one…smh…those goofballs…

  • CaraJay722

    Agreed the problem is Matt Lauer. I switched after the way they treated Anne Curry. Matt is a cheating husband. No respect for the pig.

  • ohiogirl

    I hate to leave Al Roker, but I can no longer stomach the way Ann Curry was treated. No video montage, no ‘I decided to move on’ opportunity, no respct for the most talented woman in TV news. Heartless acts deseve a quick response…I just hope Al jumps ship so I can enjoy his warm, funny spots and weather updates…love you Al!

  • Maryland

    Savannah Guthrie’s first day recieved a 10 MINUTE MONTAGE of Savannah. Ann was given 3 minutes to pack her bags and she didn’t get any video tribute, nothing!

  • john conners

    Yeah GMA……Boo Today….Lauer must go…Capus must go. It’s the programmig stupid !
