Matt Lauer doesn’t really care what you think, thank you very much…

Oh to be the morning God that Matt Lauer believes himself to be as calls for his axing grow louder this now amongst twitter followers banging on the pot drum yesterday urging Matt to give it all up and finally call it a day.

With rumors and prompts that Matt Lauer is now a sitting duck and will soon be on his way out (don’t let the door slam on the way out please Matt!), ‘Today show’ viewers it seems can’t hardly wait for the day that Matt is finally no longer on their screens as resentment and disgust with with the former adored King of morning TV.

Most pronounced with disgust for Matt came via twitter where commentators really went to work with debunking Matt.

From his failure to correctly pronounce certain key words in his articulation of yesterday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade live, to even some commenting how old the 54 year old anchor looks , with some even taking a stab at his thinning hair.

Said one twitter follower: ‘Matt Lauer doesn’t age that well. Look at his hair though. I have a picture of him from awhile ago and he looks so much better’, ‘Dear Matt Lauer, RETIRE. YOU LOOK LIKE A CROTCHETY OLD MAN’ and ‘I remember when back when Matt Lauer had hair.’ 

With respect to his presenting style, viewers tweeted:

‘Matt Lauer’s coverage of branded thanksgiving floats is indistinguishable from his coverage of the Olympic opening ceremony’; ‘Matt Lauer should get a lifetime achievement award for saying ridiculous things with deadpan, absolute sincerity. Way to go Matt’ and ‘Is there a device to delete Matt Lauer’s voice while watching the Macy’s parade?’

The increasing unabashed dissent towards Matt Lauer comes pursuant to a reportvia the National Enquirer which says that higher ups at NBC have decided to pull the plug on Matt Lauer as he is increasingly seen as aggravating not only viewers but that of cast crew and executives on the account of clashes he has had with them and the perception he is not a team player with the release of the news that Matt has declined to take a cut on his annual $21 million salary to help save some jobs. At present it is understood up to 500 staff are slated to now lose their job at NBC as the outlet continues to hemorrhage losses.

Losses that many are beginning to believe that Matt Laeur himself is largely responsible for given that his cavalier, arrogant and scheming demeanor (he is thought to really be the catalyst for Ann Curry’s ouster which only had the effect of worsening NBC’s rankings not improving them as some thought) have alienated many viewers, advertisers and of course fellow crew.

As reiterates the UK’s dailymail: A high profile former NBC News executive recently said the show needed a new frontman to turn it’s ratings around.

‘This problem is not going to go away until Matt Lauer does,’ the source said. ‘He’s great, but fairly or unfairly, his brand is damaged.’

Mr Roker, a loyal friend of Ann Curry, has been secretly working towards Mr Lauer’s demise for sometime, according to The Enquirer.

Oh dear. Remember Matt, be careful not to slam the door too loudly on the way out. In the interim let’s hope Matt manages to continue calmly drinking his perfect chamomile lest something untoward should happen to him….

    The last nail in Matt’s coffin was getting Ann Curry fired. True she was not always comfortable in the co-host seat and it showed, but she was adored my literally millions and millions of viewers. They could have simply found her niche and kept her.. but Matt wanted her gone. NBC and Jim Bell were fools enough to listen, and now they are all paying for allowing Matt to run the show.
    – He needs to just pack it up and move over to FOX where they’ll let any asshole with an opinion a voice. ..
