Matt Lauer Is Getting Fired

According to The National Enquirer, Matt Lauer is going to be fired from the Today Show. I'm not sure if they are right or not, but I do think something drastic needs to happen over there or they are going to be like CBS was in the mornings for 20 years. Way in the back and irrelevant. No one is watching Today anymore and they have tried everything but replacing Matt. Perhaps it is his time to go. It seems like everyone on the show is sick of him or hate him or has slept with him. Maybe that is why they are sick of him and hate him. Anyway, where the story loses me is that they claim that Al Roker is the man who wants to be the next co-host and is being the evil one behind the scenes pushing Matt out of the way.

Even Katie Couric said (indirectly) Matt had to go.

Let Al Roker fire Matt on the air during sweeps and give Anne Curry his job.

If they advertised that it was coming, I think it would boost ratings. I would DVR that. I hate Matt.

*karen* said...

ButterKwup, I might watch that, too!

And I love Al Roker so I might actually tune in if he was the host.

That's what he gets for being glib..........Asshole

discoflux said...

Amen, Vicki. They could have Anne Robinson from the Weakest Link give his exit flourish.

Jane Doe said...

Good. He's a pompous asshole. Team Ann!

Amber said...

Lester Holt all the way! Buh Bye, Matt. *Opens the double doors to allow his massive ego to fit through the exit**

The bigger (they think) they are, the harder they fall...

They need to get back to serious news in the first hour, semi-serious news from 8-8:30, and a bit of entertainment news from 8:30-9. Lose the third hour and spin the fourth hour off as nothing but a boozy Kathie Lee and Hoda frightfest of make-overs and similar crap.

i wouldn't mind roker taking the top job, but i'm not on the ann curry train. she's incredibly stupid and is known for it in the world of real journalism.

Robert said...

He needs to be fired. And NBC needs to seriously come up with and enforce some rational, coherent policy about employee fraternization as well as recognizing Lauer's sexual manipulation and/or harassment for what they've been--if even half the stories about him are true. I'm shocked that so far not one of the women he's victimized have filed suit against the network.

ms snarky said...

I used to like Matt, but he's insufferable.

auntliddy said...

Never watch show, never liked matt, seems the sun has set on his career. Bye, douchbag.

auntliddy said...

And al is not that guy, to fire someone.

ButterKwup said...

I don't feel sorry for the women he has slept with. They did it to get ahead in their careers. Is he a dog? Yes, but these women are not victims. They are just as unscrupulous as he is.

auntliddy said...

Maybe he tricked them, ever think of that?

I think Everybody hates Matt now... He did himself in. Don't feel a bit sorry for him..

skimpymist said...

Fire matt and his mistress. I stopped watching after learning of how much of a douche matt is. I will never forget a picture enty posted of matt and ann doing coverage of the olympics. He was slouching in his seat like he was the top dog. They should bring back ann after he's canned to add salt to his egotastic wound.

MadLyb said...

Good riddance. The man is so unbelievably full of himself.

SusanB said...

From Enty's and the National Enquirer's lips to God's ear. Can't stand this guy.

MalibuBarbie said...

Karma's a bitch Matt...

Me said...

happy thanksgiving ann!

Kewi said...

Watching Al fire his ass would be more entertaining than watching Matt awkwardly bicker in the kitchen with Giada like they just had the worst sex ever.

BobNYC said...

WAY past time for that arrogant mirror man to go. Al Roker needs to go too (sorry!) They need a whole fresh new team in front of the camera and behind the scenes - new producers with fresh eyes.

Next up - Buh Bye Jay!

Tru Leigh said...

No one's happier than Ann Curry.

Dee said...

I love Willie Geist!

Hello karma...

PotPourri said...

Sorry, I can't stand Matt Lauer or Katie Couric. They are both smarmy as hell.

Solitary Angel said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! They should bring Ann Curry on the show to fire his ass!

detown359 said...

Bring on Lester Holt full-time!

wrekehavoc said...

I totally agree Matt needs to go. I would love to see Lester Holt co-host but not sure about Natalie Morales. I hope this rumor is true!

Jennmcn said...

Dancin' a little jig over here! I never liked him, so I stopped watching and what he did to Ann, he's a prick.

PugsterMom said...

What an obvious ego! I liked him a lot when he replaced that other bloated ego aka Bryant Gumbel. Now he wilk become as anonymous as Gumbel. Halleluyah!
