    I guess NBC never learned from the "Faye" and "The Montefusco's" debacle...

    The show has been sabotaged ...plain and simple.

    NBC has created the asylum that the lunatics have now taken over.

    Here's my Today Show people they should get rid of:
    •Megyn Kelly (worst ratings)
    •Matt Lauer (leaving soon)
    •Carson Daly (say goodbye to Orange Room)
    •Al Roker (no reason)


    Thanks to Megyn Kelly's arrival on NBC, she has caused Today the worst ratings EVER.

    Even if Kelly is really promoting a clean slate, and her show was absolutely perfect, too many people remember her past and they won't bite for the new Kelly. The question now is, if NBC does abandon ship on MKT, when will it happen? I still say they'll throw in the towel in May (but not before more cringe-inducing moments and a retooled Sunday Night show after the Olympics) to get their moneys worth, but I'll be surprised if they give up at the end of the calander year.
    I'm still waiting for SNL to offer up a spoof on MKT (though in this era of SNL, it's not likely)

    Let me just say that the way Megyn Kelly's show was Today should be how it always is... Opening with a panel discussion of the day's biggest issues whether it is politics or terrorism, etc. It seemed right in her wheel house... She seemed more comfortable, with less arm waving and less awkwardness.

    Oh I caught this gem on the Today Show this morning.



    Not quite up there of President Trump speaking with the President of the Virgin Islands of gaffes but still a big one.

    LOL. Sad as it may be, so many people still don’t realize that PR is a part of the U.S. even if it’s not geographically connected. Hawaii too

    I agree but I think NBC might be grooming Megyn to take Matt's job.
    To me Today show has been losing momentum the past 8 years but this the worse crew on Today show now. Al Roker needs to retire, talk about a played out character. Matt Lauer needs to go he is like a rotted fish.

    And Megyn Kelly is the answer?

    ABC and CBS sure hope so.

    I've been thinking and saying this a while now. Both Matt and Al were there 20+ years and its time to slowly phase them out. They've were good bit now you can see both are not as passionate as they once were.

    I like Megyn Kelly - a lot. I know I don’t represent everyone but I would definitely watch Today with her at the helm. She’s that good.

    They need to get Matt Lauer out of there. He is shrinking down Today show and NBC News. The more they keep him there, the likely that NBC will go down to third place. Today's show shrinking ratings is affecting all NBC news show. Al Roker is old news, he is not a meterologist he is nothing but a senile glorified clown. I go through days where I say to myself get this old clown off my television. I was very impressed with Dylan's coverage during Hurricane Harvey with Lester. I am okay with her being a permanent weather woman.

    The should phase Lauer out after the Olympics, they can rotate male anchors. It won't make much a difference cause Lauer is so unpopular.

    Maybe he is embracing his inner self. Maybe we'll see a Bruce-Kaitlyn like transformation. Good-bye Matt, hello Matilda?

    This is good.


    Just out of curiosity, why do you keep capitalizing words that don't need to be capitalized?

    Not to be a CT person tho does anyone think it's possible that Matt Lauer played a role in what happened to David Bloom?
