I can see that a lot of people are disgusted with the
weather channel gone Hollywood. It was a great channel 10 years ago. Roker needs to get a job as host on Family Feud with all that phony drivel,and
constant hand clapping. Cantore is so dramatic and
full of himself. He might want to think about getting
a hair piece; he is not attactive. All of the ladies
are fine, though Stephanie is probably coached to try
to be funny. Listen up producers, we don't want the
Gong Show.

Stephanie Abrams is a natural disaster. I can't stand her sense of "humor" and the clothes she wears urk the heck outta me. Her dresses are super short and it looks like she is wearing something from the juniors department. Her dress length should be at least to her knee. Not half way up her thighs!! I also can't stand the ignorant "friday dance party" junk they are doing. It is so stupid!! I have an agenda when I watch the weather channel...and umm, NEWSFLASH!! It isn't dancing! I am in a hurry and getting children out the door to school and trying to get myself and my husband ready and out the door. I don't have time for dancing. If I wanted to dance I'd watch MTV or something! Put some clothes on freak show Stephanie! Do the weather and shut your face!

I am so sorry that "Wake Up With Al" is still on the air. NBC, you took a highly professional weather organization and ruined it. We just wanted the weather from folks who actually had degrees in the field.(pardon the pun)

Wake Up With Al is probably the worst thing that has come to television in this century so far.
Why would I want to start off my day with an annoying, rude "entertainer" posing as a weatherman?! Al Roker needs to be obliterated from TWC; they should fire him and his co-host (Stephanie Abram).
I don't even waste my time checking TWC in the morning anymore. It'd be an absolute waste of energy. I'd rather watch grass grow.

Al has always been a buffoon but at least before he could only be seen on that idiotic morning show. Now he disgraces TWC. NBC is even a worse joke than al.

I just wanted to congratulate The Weather Channel on becoming the next MTV. Do you remember when MTV Music Television started back in 1981, about a year before The Weather Channel began? They were true to their title in that they played music videos 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Then in 1992 they started a show called ďThe Real WorldĒ which had NOTHING to do with music. Until lately you would be hard pressed to watch any music videos on MTV with all of the reality shows and other nonsense that fills MTVís programming schedule and even now their music video offerings make up just a small part of their offerings. Needless to say I donít watch MTV anymore since they have become Music Television without the music. Now I notice that the same thing is happening at The Weather Channel. At first the programs that were shown during periods of quiet weather were kind of nice since the shows actually had something to do with the weather. Then the people running things at The Weather Channel started to run these programs even when there were severe weather events occurring somewhere in the country. At least the programming still had something to do with the weather. Then came From the Edge with Peter Lik. What the hell did this program have to do with the weather? When this show came on I would turn the channel and watch something else because if I wanted to want some Crocodile Dundee wannabe jet around the world photographing landscapes I would have turned on The Travel Channel. Now The Weather Channel has Coast Guard Alaska, Turbine Cowboys, Lifeguard, Ice Pilots, and soon the next Discovery Channel reject, Iron Men. What the hell do any of these programs have to do with the weather? NOTHING, thatís what. A few days ago a thunderstorm with a LOT of lightning and thunder woke my wife, kids, and me so I turned on The Weather Channel to see if the storms were severe and to get some information about what was going on and instead of there being WEATHER on THE WEATHER CHANNEL there were tugs pulling an oil rig. Itís a good thing that my cable provider has a channel with a statewide radar and the radio feed from the local National Weather Service office because if I had to depend on THE WEATHER CHANNEL for my WEATHER information I would have been shit out of luck. From what Iíve read among my friends posts on Facebook they seem to be of a similar opinion and are also choosing to get their WEATHER information from a company where they donít have to watch a small time air cargo operation in Canada.

I can't stand to watch Al at anything. I have to turn the channel when his stupid mug shows up on cooking. Seriously when did he become such an expert on cooking and weather. I wish he would retire.

The quality of the weather channel has officially ran down the leg and soaked into the sheets! Stupid NBC got rid of the professionals and now have on a bunch of arrogant dumb wads that are wasting our air.

I would rather wake up with a chimpanzee than Albert Roker. That mug is frightening. The weather channel gets bypassed when he is on. Pity the girls that have to listen to his big mouth every weekday morning. On top of it you have to see his stupid interviews all the time during the day, and the WUWA splashed across the screen all of the time. There are some credible people on the channel but he is not one. His best position would be selling used cars. I'm sure there is a used car lot near him that could use him. He probably has the suitable wardrobe for it. He was probably the baggage when NBC bought the weather channel.

We live in the Bahamas and my husband and I watch the Wake Up with Al show. I must admit that they have gotten away from the weather. But I think its so unfair to Stephanie Abrams who is truly accomplished in her field. I think she may have no choice but to work with Al. She and Mike were doing just fine!

a priceless comment junior. right on the money. Albert needs to hit the road. He is butt ugly as well as being obnoxious. Needs to get a job maybe selling used cars in Mexico.

I am so glad that I am not the only one who hates Al Roker's and Stephanie Abram's show. They are annoying, not interesting. Those 2 personalities not for prime time show!!! Where is Cantore, Steele, Mitchell, Carfagno, Tesch and the whole old good team of the WTC? Bring them back, idiots, and you will get back your auditory!

Yes, this summer we had wild fires close to Tulsa, there was ash falling from sky, I turned WTC and it was all about thunderstorms in Chicago! So the rest of the country is not important?

Nice to know I'm not the only one who can't stand WUWA. The last time I watched, they were jumping around and doing some weird dance and talking about W.U.W.A.- I guess hoping it would catch on.
Cannot stand Al Roker and his boring jokes and annoying chatter. Stephanie Abrams is almost as bad and Jim Cantore ( with the hands on hips) makes me ill. It's like the clash of the giant egos. I turned the Weather Channel on to follow the Hurricane and it was so bad, I had to check my local weather online. Apparently, TWC could care less about viewers and what they want. Maybe NBC uses it as a tax write-off? hmmmmm
