Oh no he didn't!

I have so much respect for him right now (even though i don't watch the show).
Wonder how this will play out?

I didn't see the show, but even reading the quote made me LOL.

He's got to lose his job, Right? I have no idea how this sort of stuff works on TV, but in the movies they don't like it when a bit actor poops on the "Star", i just don't see any other way out. Maybe Roker wants to leave, and this is a way to up the ratings..I don't know, but i think i'm going to have to watch it tomorrow. Its on Fridays..?
I never watched this show by choice, had a 'Boss' that had to watch it during meetings back in the ninety's, other than that i've never seen it.
But, Matt seems like a D-Bag, and always has to me...

Ironically, they will prove him right if they fire him.

Eh, Roker has his Weather Channel gig. He'll be fine.

They aren't going to fire him, he is the only halfway decent host they have left.

I don't understand celebrity culture.  Especially when people like Al Roker are celebs.
 
That was kind of funny though better than the nod and grin shiate we usually have to choke down.
 
2012-08-16 10:15:51 PM
Maybe they'll replace him with Ollie Williams.
 
2012-08-16 11:12:40 PM
They aren't going to fire him. It was a fair swipe at a Prima Donna host by the class clown of the show. He's supposed to make jokes.

NBC execs are smart enough about any sentence which has a black man and a bus involved.

brap: I don't understand celebrity culture. Especially when people like Al Roker are celebs.


Al Roker is a celeb because he was a jolly, fat man who made jokes that made middle-aged American white women laugh while their husbands went off to another 10-hour workday and left their needs unfulfilled. Then he managed the difficult celeb pirouette from jolly fat man into somewhat creepy looking, somewhat inappropriate pervert, who is still loved by middle-aged American white women, who now laugh because they want his Nigerian rain stick inside of them while their husbands go off to another 10-hour workday and leave their needs unfulfilled.

What I'm saying is... It's good to see Roker nailing Lauer instead of the harem of grandmothers he normally is.

When I work for ten hours a day, it's to fulfill my wife's need for a car and a roof located in a nice part of town that she can put her head under.

Would anyone really care if he was fired? Hes not entertaining and his pencil thin neck holding up that boulder of a head has become a distraction.
 
2012-08-17 01:00:23 AM
I always liked to think that the SNL skit about "Al Roker's Dance Party" had a shred of truth in it. Here's that shred that he's not a total robot. He can be corny but I'd love to see them fire him and watch him try something else... and succeed.

The way that article began, I expected them to say he made a crack about a wet cox and 8 women stroking without catching crabs.

Ann Curry sure wasn't doing anyone any favors with how fake she was in that studio, but you can't ignore the fact Matt owns that place in a big way. I can't imagine what the christmas parties are like.

Al Roker is a pro-DEA, anti-legalization moron. fark him and his pathetic weather forecasting.

Tradition.

Just story telling.
No need for a firing.

You put your wife's head under a car?

HERO for firing a weather guy?

Fire him for generating lots of buzz that will probably get more viewers to tune in to see drama? Oh wait, this is NBC we are talking about. Yeah, they'll fire him.

I doubt Lauer is going to try to take on Roker.

I'm guessing Roker is far more recognized and liked.

Matt Lauer is the dude in all the blinds who's fking all the female anchors, and the only way they get their jobs is through his personal casting couch, right?

I liked her on the old HBO '1st and 10' series, when she was the owner of a football team. But that was about 20 years back or so.
