Ann Curry doesn’t care that she’s fired. “I’m here to stay!’

Judging from many of the comments our journal has received of late pursuant to the mess over at NBC many of you have had enough and are on the way out with Ms Ann Curry when she’s eventually given her marching orders. That said now might be a reminder to say that the mess happening daily on our tv screens will probably count for the best entertainment that NBC could ever have ever paradoxically hoped for.

By now it is publicly understood that NBC have decided to give Ms Ann Curry her marching papers because at the end of the day someone has to bite the bullet when a network’s numbers are down. During this time the macabre charade that everything is fine and no one fell on the stage and cut themselves has been replaying itself with sadistic venom for just under a week now and ironically the viewership over at NBC probably hasn’t been higher in recent memory as viewers tune in to watch the nasty game of ‘will Ann Curry self implode live on national TV.’

To date Ms Curry to her credit has kept a very cool head but who hasn’t it now seems is NBC who has been desperately using their friends over at the NY Times to act as their pr minions to do their dirty work. Each ‘press release’ making NBC look by default capricious, negligent, apathetic and mean spirited which at the end of the day they probably are except to the very few who have made it to the insider’s club, ie Matt Lauer.

Who it seems hasn’t made it to the insider’s club and who wont be invited for the foreseeable future is Natalie Morales who probably got some publicist to bemoan to page 6that life is unfair and that she’s going to now find a new home, unless of course she is just saying that and NBC actually fired her pretty self to make way for new blood.

Either way whilst blood was spilling on the dance floor the sight of Joe Manganiello dancing with Ann Curry was probably the best laugh anyone could have taken from the show in weeks and served to remind us all why NBC’s the Today show has been the leader all these years. Of course who will keep that in mind will be Ann Curry as Joe Manganiello pressed his body up against hers, cause at least he understood who the real Queen in the jungle was even if NBC didn’t…

    I think matt and al belong to the good old boys club and shame on matt forgeting ann removed

  • Joe Neve-Rinaldo

    NBC always seems to make the wrong choice, dump Matt and bring back Ann. Try getting rid of Jenna Yager, because she is related to (President) Bush does not make her an expert in the field – seems unfair when so many others need jobs in the field. We are aware that the Olympics are being held in London, but we don’t need to hear on a daily basis about England and the prince and his wife. It gets old! Been watching the Today Show for years and years, now is time for a change to CBS.

    matt lauer is very hard for me to look at, get him a toupe nbc with brains

  • Patty

    Love Ann Curry…she is professional, compassionate, truly cares about the people she interviews, as well as the audience. Will be checking out Good Morning America…Robin Roberts is a class act, just like Ann. Today Show blew it! Good luck, Ann…you will land on your feet!

  • Former Fan

    Shame on NBC – Ann Curry personifies such strong calm and kindness – I’ve watched the show for years and will probably try another morning show now that we know the ‘family’ at the Today show is really a sham. Added to that is that foolish show that features Hoda & Kathy Lee – where is quality TV – do we have to be subjected to these two drunks everyday!

  • NMJPOSTON

    I am afraid that NBC has shot itself in the foot by firing Ann Curry, the best person ever to be on TODAY. Since the days of Dave Galloway, I have watched TODAY – BUT WILL NOT DO SO FROM NOW ON UNTIL NBC AND MATT LAUER PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE TO ANN CURRY. AND THAT WILL NEVER BE.

  • Ann kessler

    NBC is a fraud. I have watched the Today show for at least 20 years, but, no more. The firing of Anne Curry not only was disappointing, but, has brought to light the disingenuous actions of the members of the cast. It was obvious to me for some time that there was ugly politics happening beside the scenes. So sad it was true. No more NBC TODAY for me. There are other very good morning shows

  • Handywill321

    Not watching the today show anymore or sure… How canyou fire Ann curry when you could have got rid of the2 drunks…

  • Psydchdocdavis

    The firing or the resignation of Ann Curry is extremely egregious! NBC shouldn’t have fired her and made her a scapegoat, and if she resigned, NBC should have done EVERYTHING to keep her! She’s beautiful, smart, and an EXCELLENT anchor…much better than that dry, no sense of humor, and boring Lauer. When they ask you back, Ann, you tell them, “No!” This is awful…no more Today Show!

  • Robert

    Matt Lauer is behind this,and you can take tht to the bank!

  • If anyone needs to be “put out on da streets”… it be that brain dead, affirmative action token black boy” Roker. He has the brains of a rock…gives a new definition to “ugly” and no matter how his NBC “handlers” spin him…the “new look” slowly…or quickly…dissolves and there he is again…the continuous blight and detraction to and from any semblance of intelligence and meaning on this deteriorating network.

    To keep him and oust Curry is indicative of profound STUPIDITY! But by now…most everyone knows what the I.Q. of NBC is and will continue to be. They are close to being permanently buried and are in their “death throes” and deservingly so!

  • Golddiggers85

    I guess I’ll be leaving with Ann. She is a class act and wonderful anchorwoman.

  • Skye

    I vividly recall how NBC (Nutjob, Butthead, Corporation) treated the talented Conan O’Brien shortly after hiring him and then giving into pressure from Jay Leno and friends. NBC (National Bitching Central) getting rid of Ann Curry, and not Matt Lauer, confirms my viewership of CBS every morning from now on. Maybe NBC out to fire itself and let the janitors run it.’
