I hate wake up with al! The other day Al Roker made a comment about not wanting to watch somew fat man on tv - which is exactly how I feel about him! Does he not remember when he was grossly overweight until he had surgery? He is rude and obnoxious and has totally ruined the weather channel!

I thought I was the only one that sees twc going downhill. Here in Oklahoma weather is often life and death and al roker is a joke. When the storms nuked Tushka last week I used weather underground and local tv. Roker isn't even a meteorologist.... bad joke.

Stepanie's face is cartoonish! Why is everything so BIG? Why is she wearing Prada, and talking like a valley girl?

The weather channel has screwed themselves with this stunt. Al should not be there! He is out of place and needs to go back to the Today show. He adds nothing to the TWC!

Just the name of the show makes me ill.

I wish they would stop with all the extra stuff and stick with the weather. I wanted to see the weather today and they had that annoying guy Jim Cantore doing some show on the USMC, why I have no idea. I turned it off and looked up the weather on my computer. I am about to remove TWC from my programmed channels.

Kuz the north east is getting bad storms, and they care to much about tornado victims. the severe weather expert is ugly.

I share the same feelings with everyone else here.
Ever since NBC took over,TWC has became a big joke.
I remember when I first got attached to TWC in 1997.It was just great. The meteorologists were very professional. That angered me when they laid off almost all of the original OCM's that made TWC what it was. Bill Keneely,Kristina Abernathy,Dave Schartz,ect. I hardly ever tune in myself anymore.
They talk less about the weather. The local forecasts are a joke now too.Just like all,I don't like Al Roker on there either. What a disaster.
Al Roker and Stephanie Abrams teamed up spells disaster. They both annoy the heck out of me.

I can not stand stephanie abrams. who does she think she is?? can we get a before and after photo of her? she really thinks she has gone hollywood now that she is on some terrible show. I hate how she takes every opportunity to talk about herself and how "quirky" and "goofy" and "uninteresting" that she is.

I agree I stopped listening in the morning because of Stephanie Abrahms. They should just let Micke Bettes have the morning show.

The weather channel sucks more every day. It all started when the fired George 5 years ago. It has lost it's way. Just like MTV and Headline news.
It is having a slow death. The people that watch it are of low IQ.

I do not not want to wake up to an old bald black
guy telling me the weather. A nice young pleasant
lady is what is needed. Go back to NBC Roker or get
a real job where you have to work for a living.
TWC could be a good channel if it was like it used
to be. Used to like the weather channel.

My husband and I agree --- we can't stand Al OR Stephanie. Al is rude, obnoxious, not at all talented, and tells me nothing about the weather. Stephanie is just silly. Last week, she said 'the weather is just crazy ..... ooo
from now on, I'm going to say cray-cray instead of crazy.... the weather is just cray-cray.' THAT DID IT. I had to turn it off or throw up.

I cannot believe that TWC allows this. TWC USED to be a classy station--- now I can't wait till Saturday and Sunday when I don't have to put up with Al and Stephanie.

There are so many talented and classy meterologists there ---- Jen and Vivian especially --- they have to be embarrassed.

Isn't there someone, somewhere who will listen to us?
