Ann Curry refused on her last week of the Today show to even talk to Matt Lauer.” Insider reveals horror behind NBC’s Today show.

There may have been reason why Ann Curry on her last day of NBC’s the Today show was not too forthcoming with co host Matt Lauer as he leaned over to offer her his condolences.

According to an undisclosed source, US Weekly have just released an articlewhere it is claimed that Matt Lauer was 100 % behind Ann leaving,” something that may strike seasoned TV viewers and devout Today show fans as less than compelling indictment on the highly paid co anchor.

But the source goes further to say so high were tensions between the two (if was by now no secret that Matt Lauer had orchestrated Ms Curry’s departure at the show) that relations were said to be particularly icy and that ‘she refused to speak to him all week.’

Meanwhile the ratings jump that NBC had been looking for has of yet not materialized and might put considerable heat under the assertion that NBC were rash to get rid of Ms Curry.

hollywoodreporter: Preliminary Nielsen data has the June 28 broadcast of Today pulling in 4.31 million viewers, topping ABC’s Good Morning America by 180,000. And though it is a win for Today, that number was shy of the previous week’s average (4.49 million) and the significantly stronger second-quarter numbers (5.03 million).

As for Curry’s replacement, Savannah Guthrie’s first day on the job did not immediately help her series’ ongoing ratings battle with GMA. Fast affiliate ratings have the ABC show topping Today by 398,000 viewers on Friday — preliminary numbers give 4.41 million viewers to GMA and 4.02 million to Today.

Time will tell if NBC chose the right course of action, but judging from the above numbers it seems viewers are none too pleased with the way NBC handled Ms Curry and may have inadvertingly pushed away dedicated fans who were appalled by the supposedly ‘family’ channel’s behavior towards one of its insiders.

    Anne will land on her feet somewhere. NBC made a mistake….if you are going to revamp…then go all the way. Matt should be gone and probably first. That is the only way they will get me to look at the show again.

  • oharamylove65

    OMG-Is NBC serious about Savannah Guthrie, I watched fr 5 minutes and was sickened by her and Matt. I for the first time tuned into GMA, and it is so CLASSY-robyn George Lara are REAL people. Trust me people have never tuned into TODAY to watch Matt, it was to see ANN CURRY and how classy and beautiful she is. NBC you should be ashamed for what you did. I hope to see your ratings continue to drop, and all the best to GMA, where I and probably millions of others will tune into from now on. GOOD LUCK MATT AND SAVANAH as at this point there is nothing you can do to save face. Mondays show was AWFUL, and has continued to drop all week. 25 million a year FOR WHAT AGAIN?????????

  • Linda Degroot

    I agree. His mannerism’s and body language said it all from the get go. He couldn’t stand her and missed flirting with his old gal pal Meredith. What an ego. Haven’t watched the show since they had Palin co-host. What a joke they are and won’t watch it ever again, no matter who they hire!

  • Crewsn

    I will no longer watch The Today Show! Ann Curry is fabulous…I will miss her, but wish her every success that she is deserving of.

  • Bell

    Ann Curry was the best thing about the show. I won’t be watching NBC> What a dirty thing to do.

  • guest

    sounds like they need to get rid of matt lauer, with his baby tantrums the show is losing it’s momentum and they new co-host certainly won’t pull any ratings she is blah, blah…

  • Fluffy2

    Matt is the one that needs to be fired. Ugly inside and out. Why would he have so much authority? Ann was America’s sweetheart and will be missed. A very classy lady with a lot of talent. I will be watching another network.

  • Owe62d

    nbc got it wrongggggggg, matt lauer is the problem. fire him next,now or else.

  • lisofby

    exactly. a case of the evil stepmother and mirror mirror on the wall, whose the hated one of all-m lauer/ louser.

  • Krrowlands

    Used to record and watch The Today show (at least the first couple of hours) every day. Have not watched or recorded it since her departure. We have on intentions of returning to a network with such low ethics.

  • lisofby

    omg! you are so right nmj. that program is terrible for cutting off guests when they get to the heart of a matter, ie the reason to watch!
    i really liked this ann curry from the start, and i thought that matt louser was an ugly condom. seems i was right.

  • Nmjposton

    Ann Curry was one of the top reasons for my watching the Today Show. I have watched this show since “the days of the monkey” and Dave Galloway. Ann Curry IS NOT THE REASON FOR FAILING VIEWERSHIP – PROGRAMMING IS. Rudeness to guests, not given enough time to fully present their wares, ideas, etc. is one of the main reasons. Entirely too liberal and not giving fair time to opposing views, news presented in a much too biased way – all these have caused my lack of interest BUT I ALWAYS WATCHED ANYTHING ANN CURRY HAD TO PRESENT. She will be missed by millions – I for one will not watch as often as previously.
