    Howard on Wednesday said internal market research showed that Today viewers hate Ann Curry.

    Listen to the audio:

    But here's the truth, from this week's New York Magazine:

    This story is such old news. How long ago was Curry fired? It was last June. Frankly, I was shocked they gave the job to her in the first place. Her personality just didn't seem to jive with being the cohost of that show. She did a fine job as the newsreader, but she was dry toast and didn't have any flair. She comes across as a very nice lady, but so what? That doesn't make her cohost-worthy on the Today Show. As for Lauer, that guy has been a tool for a while now. He has become pompous which seems to be a natural progression when someone sits at the top for too long. Howard is a perfect example, and look at how Letterman is these days. Letterman is nothing like the guy he was in his prime. He now views himself as royalty. Lauer is the same way. He thinks his job is serious business.

    Don't people see what Howard is doing? He is setting up the long con to why NBC is going to dump him from AGT after this season. Spend months talking about NBC's incompetence by letting their big ratings getters in Lauer and Leno go and he protects himself if NBC goes public after the season that they chose not have him back. If they minimize his exposure in ads and promos and air time on AGT and the ratings go down, he can blame incompetent NBC executives for killing the ratings by not putting him in the forefront of the promotions.

    It is clear that Howard is calculating how he can deflect blame for the inevitable decline in ratings of AGT this summer and allowing him to write the narrative of his exit from AGT after the season if NBC comes out and says that they did not want him back.

    Howard is such a scumbag. Its always about himself and/or his tribe.

    Are they Buchwald clients?
    Are they tribe members?

    In Lauer's case = :oy2: member

    To some executive this meant that Curry is bringing the show down. If she's gone, people will like Matt again.

    Matt Lauer just isn't very appealing.....his complexion is gray and that fuzz on the top of his head makes him seem like a creepy old man...not someone to wakeup to.

    Imagine going to sleep with the big ugly face of Howard at night and being greeted by slimy Lauer in the morning.

    Howard's been getting away with lies like that for years. If you check other sources, you'll find most of what he says is untrue. The biggest lie is that he's an honest person, nothing could be further from the truth.

    This is Howard's MO. I mean listen to him go off about how Leno makes so much money, so why does he have to do commercials? Robin points out Howard's Hamptons buddy Seinfeld was doing the same thing and Howard has no response.

    I'd be embarrassed if Howard was defending me knowing full-well his hypocrisy makes him look like a complete douchebag.
