    Low ratings?

    Fire Katie Couric and replace her with Meredith Viera but keep Matt Lauer

    Still tanking?

    Fire Meredith Viera and replace her with Ann Curry but keep Matt Lauer

    Still getting your ass handed to you by Good Morning America?

    Fire Ann Curry and replace her with with Mat Lauers girlfriend Natalie Morales..... Whoa whoa whoa stop the clock. If you give Morales the job Lauers wife will leave him but in any case make sure you keep Matt Lauer. But we still need a cohost so give it to Savannah Guthie but keep Matt Lauer because no matter what happens...

    ...it cant be Matt Lauers fault.

    Howard knows damn good and well that the buck stops with Matt Lauer...to think that he has no input on who he cohosts with is pound foolish. Howard knows this and would argue this way for anyone other than Matt. Fucking hypocrite

    i can't stand matt lauer...he's one of those people who manage to fail upward (or maybe he has something on one of the network execs).
    there was a time i would have been interested in what happens on network morning shows(they used to be about current events) but they've been dumbed down beyond recogintion...nothing more that mindless drivel for the slow witted.

    Terrific Post!! (and thread)
    I agree that MAYBE..just MAYBE Matt Lauer IS THE PROBLEM :rolleye:...he's so dull ...soooo bored by it all...& clearly he's not getting along with Savannah.
    She's suffering from the "Deborah Norville" syndrome....
    I think BabBaBooey discussed this on the WUS....(yes!! I'm bringing up the WUS!!!) ;)

    Savannah like Deborah Norville filled in for the (female) Anchor co-host and was well liked ..you could just TELL Merideth was on her way OUT and Savannah IN.....just like Norville when she filled in for Jane Pauley...a beautiful blonde that they THOUGHT would boost ratings....
    the public hated Deborah Norville....so did Bryant G...
    So this is the same thing with Savannah Guthrie replacing the much beloved Ann Curry!! "Old Ann"....YOUNG Savannah!
    somehow it all went bad....for Savannah during the Olympics...
    and now she's considered annoying and suffers migrane headaches...she's tooo tall standing next to 5'5" Matt....and Matt finds her annoying...
    she's not so well liked....maybe in small doses but not every day???

    I like that Willy dude better than Matt!! I think he was on Scarborough and was fired? not sure but they make a good team..
    FIRE Matt Lauer!!! Hire Willy !!

    or hire BethO!! SHE's so beloved ....put her in the Anchor chair with Matt!
    Oh...forget it,,,,Matt wouldn't hire "Howard Stern's Wife"....afraid the ratings would REALLY take a dive.....afraid Howard would be controlling things...

    I boycotted the show when Ann Curry was fired!!

    ps...I switched to GMA...I LOVE George Stephenopoulous!!!!!!

    peace & love

    I can't watch any of those dopey morning shows. A bit of hard news, 7 minutes of fluff content, followed by five minutes of commercials. Rinse, repeat. No thanks.
