Why can’t we all just learn to love Matt Lauer?
Kids it’s time to wish NBC’s Matt Lauer a happy birthday as he turns 55 today. That said it’s unlikely Matt will necessarily be in particularly good cheer as he is forced to face the bitter news that your love for him is fast waning.
Said to having to endure strangers now name calling him names on the street and the ever dizzy back and throe nameless sources tipping his imminent demise, the ‘Today’ show anchor is hardly having the most festive season that he could have necessarily hoped for.
In fact so despondent has Matt become with his once hit show ceding viewership to ABC’s ‘GMA’ he’s even now taking to studying how they have managed to beat the pants out of his morning show.
radaronline: According to an insider, the situation has shocked Lauer so much that he’s been reduced to obsessively studying the rival show for clues on how his show has gone wrong. The NBC program which once ruled morning TV has done worse in the ratings since the dismissal of Curry who was replaced as Lauer’s co-host by Savannah Guthrie this summer.
Never mind Matt, things can only get better. Or maybe not? Who knows maybe you might get a surprise happy birthday card from Ann Curry? Or maybe not?
