Yeah, after the Ann fiasco, I just quit paying attention. Savanna in place of Ann Curry? Really? Really?

/and don't get me started on that stupid Bush daughter
//we have better just starting out reporters in the very small market stations around here

Ann was the best part of the Today show. Lauer's a dick.

Now that we're done with that, can we talk about how smoking hot Amy Robach is?

What goes around, comes around. Ann Curry was one of my favorite things about "Today"; I liked her better than Meredith. I'd been watching for maybe 15 years or so, but stopped when they dropped Ann. Such a shiatty thing to do. I now channel hop while getting ready in the AM; either the local news that runs until 9, CBS Morning Show, CNN with Soledad O'Brien (I liked her on Weekend Today), or MSNBC for some "Morning Joe". I've tried to watch GMA, but it just seems like chaos most of the time.

Now, I DO still watch Today on the weekends; I love Lester Holt. He's the hardest working man in news, I swear.

Whether Ann Curry's personality comes across or not is a matter of opinion; I happen to have really liked her. However, the one thing you could accuse her of was having way too much class for that bunch of idiots.

I only recently started watching the Today show, right around the end of the Ann Curry era. I liked her ok but she admittedly had a poor personality for daytime TV.

But Matt Lauer? I have learned to despise him with the passion of 1000 suns. Yesterday he was interviewing the great Carol Burnett and started asking her all concerned-like, "But how do you feel about today's comics with their swear words and blue humor? I personally feel uncomfortable about this." She looked at him like he was crazy for a minute.

And I just turned it off. She probably got that question 40 years ago, Matt, thanks for checking in with today's hot topics.

I'm i the squealie camp. I quit watching when they so abruptly kicked Ann out of the door. Even when Katie left, she was given a full week of send-offs; Meredith, too. I watched them every single morning for probably over 20 years. No more. They blew it. I'm trying to find my new morning fix, but it's like driving someone else's car and I haven't found my groove yet.
I miss you Ann!!!!

namegoeshere: GMA is the better show. Today just makes me uncomfortable.

They both suck, unfortunately. While one is talking about weddings the other is talking about YouTube videos. They've devolved into little more than a combination of Entertainment Tonight and Buzzfeed.

CBS News This Morning is the only morning news show made for adults, but Oprah hanger-on Gayle King makes it unwatchable.

Ann Curry is one of those people who's so serious about what she does that she makes you think she's not enjoying it. It wasn't until we saw it being taken away from her that we got to see that she really did have feelings about what she was doing. Sort of like Bob Dole, before and after the 1996 presidential election.

czetie: My wife started putting it on in the mornings a few months ago, so I have a question for those of you who have been watching longer. How long has Today been such a shill for the Republican party? Is it an election season thing, or have they always been Fox News Lite?

I don't watch the Today Show and never have, so I can't answer your question about bias. However, I know two Republicans who refuse to watch GMA (my preferred morning show) simply because George Stephanopoulos is on it.

I've watched GMA since I was a kid, back when Joan Lunden and David Hartman were on it. I know Today was popular when Katie Couric was on it, but I was never a fan of hers. And I despise Matt Lauer; he seems so freaking smug.

Madbassist1: This morning I was getting ready for work and "CBS This Morning" was on. Charlie Rose was the freaking host and it appeared for all intents and purposes to be know...a news show. I think that's the one I would like if I had to pick one.

If you can catch them right at 7AM (EST), they run a montage of clips all the current news events. Ususally very well done and segs into Charlie Rose. He does report the news well, but no amount of makeup can help him look like anything other than a corpse.
Which is why I switch quickly over to CNN Headline News for the Robin Meade eye bleach. The inside joke of having a pron star-looking woman report the news never gets old. It's the warm personality.

basemetal: /and don't get me started on that stupid Bush daughter

She's weird looking. I was staring at her face yesterday and staring at it and thinking this is a weird face. I smoke a lot of weed in the AM but still, frickin' weird face. Big

I stopped watching Today in favor of GMA a few years ago.

Today is going to have a rough time with sweeps week if it just happens to coincide with Robin Roberts return.

I really like RR.
