Can't stand Lauer. He's long overdue to get fired.
This story is two months old.
And how is this a reputable publication, if you can even call it a publication...
Good, Lauer is a tool.
I wish it was true. I can't stand Matt Lauer. He looks like a Meerkat.
I think Mattie is kinda yesterday. They need a cute airhead to get the girls screaming. I mean, who is their audience but: fraus; welfare queens; caftans and college girls?
They need Willie Geist and someone way better than Savannah "I Look Like A Constipated Tranny With Fivehead" Guthrie" to be the new hosts.
They are literally working day and night building his "private equestrian complex" out in the Hamptons. I can hear them sawing and hammering 7 days a week even in the darkest of winter nights at 7:30 pm. And the day after the blizzard I could hear work going on over there. Matt's in a big hurry to get that place finished.
I noticed this morning they sent Willie to Miami with Al & Savannah, not Matt.
Too bad. He may be a tool, but Matt looks HOT in a swimsuit....
[quote] [R10] Matt has Fridays off as per his contract
That is in keeping with the rich people' unwritten rule --We leave for the Hamptons on Thursday, not Friday like the secretaries who share 10 to a house. And we fly. Seaplane, helicopter, small plane, private jet. We would not be caught touching the ground in places like Wantagh or Islip.
Time for Matt to go. And take a downgrade to local across town. WCBS-2 has an opening resulting from Rob Morrison's speedy exit.
Replace him with Bill Hemmer.
r4 I wish it were true.
Matt is talented and hawt. Don't be a hater. You all sound worse than the time, Blair was made because her retarded cousin upstaged her after she won a school award.
When are they going to understand? Those morning chat/"news" shows have audiences mostly comprised of women over the age of 35. Every time they publicly fire their female 35+ on-air talent and replace them with younger women, they re-enact every older woman's most primal fear. Their audience experiences the firing of Jane Pauley, Ann Curry, et al as a betrayal of THEMSELVES. Of course they abandon the show that just (to their mind) abandoned them.
You'd think they'd have learned their lesson 24 years ago with the Pauley/Norville debacle, but no.
I'm always happy NOT to see Matt Lauer on the Today show. Not there on Fridays? Great!! I wish he would take more days off each week -- like all of them.
