Thank the GODS. I've never liked Ann Curry. She's too...something for me. Oblivious, maybe?
 
2012-06-28 09:18:21 AM  
eff the today show, it's been a talkie "People" magazine for years, it's one step up from entertainment tonight and is constantly pandering to their advertisers.

EFFF THAT SHOW

You never notice, in a male-female pairing of co-hosts on a news show, the female has less job security?

Matt Lauer can suck it!
 
2012-06-28 09:21:49 AM  
Don't watch a lot of American TV, and no American "news", because, you know, it's not news.

So what's the dealio with this talking head between the pharmaceutical commercials? Why is this Fark-worthy?

Aside from the fact that the replacement will perhaps inevitably have firmer, higher breasts.
 
2012-06-28 09:22:23 AM  
I was thinking the problem was that doctors had discovered brain matter in Ann Curry's head and she was thus deemed unqualified to host Today.
 
2012-06-28 09:24:15 AM  
She bombed out in her Freshman year.....
 
2012-06-28 09:24:34 AM  
Meh, I like the Today fluff Show. It's news lite to get going in the day and wake up. I can go hard core anytime I log into Fark's political tab.......
 
2012-06-28 09:27:29 AM  
Man she was hot hot hot hot hot. I only watched the show to look at her.
 
2012-06-28 09:27:32 AM  
Was she really worse than Meredith Vieira? Or are we finally finding that it's always better to hire younger good looking people to read from a teleprompter and ask inocuous softball questions to people on book promotion tours?

Except in the case of Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric, Couric left to take a shot at hosting the evening news which she was not right for, Ann Curry has more of an evening news personality which is why she is bad for the today show.
 
2012-06-28 09:29:51 AM  
She's not 140 lbs, is she?
 
2012-06-28 09:30:23 AM  
We haven't watched in months because Ann Curry's voice makes me stabby, but we're watching this morning to hear The Announcement. I really want someone to ask her how this makes her feel, in a fakey soft voice, and add in a couple of "Hm mmm's" in.

I think this makes me a bad person.

You're too kind.

Well yeah, but you also just described almost every "news" show on television right now. Have you watched their competition, GMA, lately? ZOMG A BABY LAUGHING ON YOUTUBE!!

Ann always struck me as someone very smart and kind, but it always sounds like she's forcing a breathy, deep voice. Both she and Viera failed to realize the secret of Couric's longtime success on that show: great legs + short skirts.
 
2012-06-28 09:35:45 AM  
I kind of liked her but she really didn't gel with Matt so bye-bye.
 
2012-06-28 09:36:14 AM  
I might, just might, pay money to see Ann Curry and Conan O'Brien in a porn movie entitled "NBC Screwees Screwing"

/see, 'cuz NBC screwed them both and now they're screwing each other

I'll tell you but I'll have to put down my vintage, wooden headphones and stop listening to this band you've never heard of, and go out and buy one of those "televisions" you all talk about so much, and then watch that insufferable, plebian dreck to get the answer. Though firmer breasts is a safe conjecture.

I'm really going to miss her. There was nothing more funny than watching her come out of her corner swinging in some hard-hitting journalistic slam-dunk story, get backed into a corner by her subject and go down with a one-shot glass jaw buster.

Matt Lauer....I wish he'd get lost trying to hide from them.
Where in the world is Matt Lauer? Matt who?

I could not agree more. The Today Show is seriously the worst piece of crap on TV. And anyone that waits outside the Today show is a moron.
 
2012-06-28 09:54:04 AM  
I am at work when that show is on. I never had a problem with Ann Curry when I saw it. She seem smart and kind of too serious for a fluffy morning show. I know some don't like her, but I don't get it. The woman is fine.
 
2012-06-28 09:54:07 AM  
Ann Curry is awesome. She is intelligent, beautiful, and confident. She is the only Asian host in news, at least that has a significant audience. She is more suited to evening television than morning, especially as she far more capable than Katie Couric ever was. Plus, I have never seen inside her colon, which is a bonus.

/I hope for her final broadcast, as a send-up to Connie Chung and to poke at the underlying anti-asian prejudice of the American audience, she writhes on a piano singing, "I don't know why you say goodbye, I say herro."
 
2012-06-28 09:55:05 AM  
I don't like the Today show. Their colors seem a little off to me. Too soft. Almost patronizing. I watch GMA where I can tell my black people from my white people.

/I know, I know. I am getting ready to take my medication right now.
 
2012-06-28 09:55:15 AM  
I am hopeful that they'll replace her with Savannah Guthrie, who is a goddess.
 
2012-06-28 09:55:52 AM  
I know I'm in the minority, but I like Ann Curry. I'll miss her.

However, I am growing weary of the Today Show. The first hour gives me real news, but after that it shifts toward infomercial for the latest NBC/Universal/Comcast project.

I tried Good Morning America, and it was just an infomercial for the latest Disney theme park, movie, and Broadway play.

CBS Morning? Gayle King? No way. No way, no how.

Meanwhile, the best, most versatile and hardest-working person on the NBC News team will continue to be overlooked.

www2.turnto10.com

The guy does the Weekend Today show, then hosts Dateline at 8:00 the same night, covers the A-team's vacations, does special reports, AND he does the NBC radio news all day.

Lester, you're always going to be a bridesmaid at NBC, they just don't appreciate you there. Jump ship and anchor ABC or CBS.

i really hate to use a biz cliche, but it is what it is...the today show has ALWAYS been morning "news" version of people mag.

I agree. Lester Holt is an excellent reporter, and he can do all kinds of news. He also has a great sense of humor which he uses when appropriate.

I didn't even know Ann Curry had become one of the main people on "Today." I haven't watched that show since Tom Cruise was on there being an asshole.

That's another thing about Ann Curry that annoys me, her "funny" comments. Which are neither funny, nor any sort of commentary on the story at hand.

I want to see Matt Lauer fight Mathew Fox.

I find her shallow and pedantic. She insists upon herself.
 
2012-06-28 10:26:24 AM  
I like Ann Curry; I really like her replacement, Savannah Guthrie. I don't like Matt Lauer, and I only watch about 10 minutes of Today before I have to leave for work, so none of this really impacts my life. So why am I posting here? I don't know. Maybe just to say I really like Savannah Guthrie. A lot.
 
2012-06-28 10:26:41 AM  
Maybe Matt Lauer is your f*cking problem, NBC. Matt Lauer is the type of person who thinks he's funny but he's not, thinks he is interesting but he's not, and the resulting inability to be funny or interesting translates into his being a total douchenozzle as he tries to find a fellow program anchor who actually has a personality. He and Bob Costas have the same problem, no depth. It doesn't help that most women, including Ann, aren't funny or interesting either.
