It looks like Matt Lauer and his NBC boss Steve Capus have egg all over their faces pursuant to the latest preliminary Nielsen ratings just released…not that anyone paying any attention couldn’t see this coming a mile away.
Savannah Guthrie may have made her official debut as Today’s co host this past Monday but it doesn’t seem anyone was really there to take notice, this according to numbers that show NBC clinching only 1.674 million viewers in the prized 25-54 year old age bracket as compared to ABC’s Good Morning America which garnered 1.68 million viewers. To make matters worse, GMA also posted a 356 000 advantage among total viewers(4.425 to NBC’s 4.069 million).
If the numbers are confirmed this would be the first time since February 2006 that GMA would have won in both measurements since February 2006.
Kids I have an interesting feeling there’s going to be the chill of blood Wednesday morning when Matt raises his perfect teacup of chamomile and looks out into the universe and wonders where did he go wrong. Oh dear…
