The weather channel has become a variety show. Cantore is very full of himself and might want to try to get some hair. I'm sure that No Broadcasting Credibility is using TWC as a tax write-off now.Roker should be a host of one of those mindless shows like Family Feud or Baggage. He is not even close to being a meteorologist. Enough of WUMA.

Wake Up With Al is really terrible for all the logical sane comments mentioned on this forum. Funny thing though, last week, I turned into this show on Monday and immediately noticed that Roker and particularly Abrams, were serious for a change. No, stupid idiotic brainless comments. I picked right up on this as it was so atypical for this show. Abrams was actually professional for a change. I thought to myself, the execs at the network must have told them to stop some of the phoney, pretentious, superficial nonsense. I thought wow, just maybe NBC and TWC had some sense knocked into them. Maybe the ad revenues are falling and the "elites" at NBC are waking up. Well, checked back this week and looks like they are back to their phoney, pretentious, unprofessional show...So, off it goes

I will jump for joy when I hear that show is moved (later in the day) or cancelled. I never could see rocker being a weather person. Take back TWC to what it was !

I love The Weather Channel & Wake up With Al is fabulous. My husband & I wouldn't dare miss it. We look forward to watching Al & Stephanie. They are so dedicated & energetic. Jim Cantore is a hero & that Mike Bettis is just pleasant to watch. For anyone who say the forecasts are not accurate, then I'm sorry for your experience, but in Alabama it has been on target. I love this show. Keep it coming Weather Channel.

The Weather Channel is no longer The Weather Channel. It's now just another NBC entity. Looks just like CNBC, MSNBC. Don't get it. The Weather Channel was so successful WHY change what was working? People tuned in FOR THE WEATHER not the news of the day or pitiful programming. If I wanted to see Al Roker, I'd tune into the TODAY SHOW. As many other folks have mentioned in this post, my family and I now tune into our local weather forecast. Very sad. NBC you really messed this one up!
CNBC should go away. Bring back the " GOOD " Weather Channel Al Joker please go away with CNBC !

It has become MSNBC weather. All hype and little reality. Now they are bringing on another "entertainer" and non-meteorologist to do the weather. This format must be working for somebody, because they keep doubling-down on what's not working.

I can't believe that these two IDIOTS (Al Roker and Stephanie Abrams) are still on the air!!!!! They are UNPROFESSIONAL and joke too much, they must be on drugs! Who did they blow to continue to stay on the air?

What the HELL is so funny about weather devastation, destruction of homes, property and peoples' lives???? They are constantly making smart aleck comments, dirty comments, flirting with each other and turning the Weather Channel into a freaking JOKE! I just can't watch it anymore!

How much money do the investors of the Weather Chanel have to lose until they realize that these two MORONS have got to GO!!!! Nobody is watching.

Heartily agree with every comment , the TWC is a joke because of NBC. The nitwits that run that insane asylum have destroyed a very useful program and turned it into mindless pap! Hey that's what overpaid self serving BS artists from the Big Apple do, they try to appeal to the average, the masses . Oh but here comes a fresh NY TV personality that will make all these bad feelings about Roker disappear, Hello Sam Champion! I don't watch because I can't , this channel has been destroyed.

There are so many good people on TWC who I enjoy watching and who I respect . I can't understand why these people are being overshadowed with burnout has-beens that people like me have gone to great lengths to avoid watching! NBC management is corrupt and stupid, they keep proving that over and over again . Roker and Champion are just hapless pawns in the hands of degenerate dopes.

Take care everyone, I enjoyed your validation.

All cable channels have been dumbed down beyond belief. TWC was once an informative and useful tool. Now it's merely another "follow the leader" network that offers a plethora of programming that only a cretin could find entertaining. Seeing what a travesty television has become, it makes me wonder if American's really are getting dumber if they'll tolerate and make time to watch the mind-robbing rubbish that's so prevalent on all channels nowadays.

When will Al Roker just go away and take overstuffed Stephanie with im. You canno get away from the silliness of these two as they do everything but the weather. I refuse to watch the channel until Vivian comes on. The Champion talking head over do is another whole zone I avoid. He and his gang are even worse.

Someone please give us an alternative to TWC please!

Otherwise we do much better with the internet and our local channels.

I can't believe this show is still going on. Yes, weather channel cut their time back severely, but it really deserves to be cancelled. Time for a change of characters. These are overstaying their welcome with American viewers. Especially with the garbage talk.

Roker doesn't even have a degree in meteorology, he needs to GO.

Al sucks. Stephanie really sucks. The whole show is an enigma as to why it even exists. The list of things wrong with this show are to long to list. None of these "personalities" are "entertaining" and the are not supposed to be. Just give me the weather ... preferably without any hamming or drama.

Stephanie Abrams would be better suited tending bar on the lower east side of Chicago rather than faking her faux abilities as a broadcaster ... OF ANYTHING!

Just once I would like to see one of these idiot reporters shoot a piece from a front window table of a quaint little cafe, sipping on a nice glass of Merlot, with the camera looking over their shoulder, out the window, where a hurricane, blizzard, flood, or lava flow is happening and just remarking "well, there's the event. Boy am I glad I'm not stupid enough to be out in that!"
