Ann Curry is a Great TV Journalist, she should be put back in that position. As far as the show ratings dropping, maybe because Matt Lauer has become totally Bored with his job!! Maybe the show is dropping ratings because it has become a cooking show and the guest don't even have enough time to show there talents!! Rush, Rush !!!

Ann Curry is not the problem with The Today Show. There has been a slow progression of dumbed-down dullness that has permeated your show over the past 5 -10 years, long before Ann took over as co-host.

The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when you repeatedly had the same bizarre guests such as the crazy Duggar Family on. I do not want to see the weird Duggars or that creepy Donald Trump anymore, so I switched to GMA and found out it was a lot more fun.

First, your show is too long - 2 hours is more than enough time.... any additional time is redundant. Second, the producers who plan the segments should be fired - the segments are gawd awful... for example, those cooking segments, financial tips, and Jenna Bush are not very interesting and are deadly dull. Third, you tend to chase the more sensational stories which is a huge turnoff for viewers who have a brain bigger than a pea.

The only great upgrade for your show has been the Today's Professionals. They are smart, funny and the only bright stars on Today.

Do not treat Ann Curry the same way NBC did Conan. I guarantee that if you do, NBC's reputation and ratings will plunge into the cellar. Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Natalie Morales certainly do not have great personalities -- they appear to be worn out and tired sleepwalkers, so finding yourself a scapegoat will not help you at all.

And, oh yes, I forgot your biggest folly thus far - Sarah Palin hosting the Today Show. That, along with Duggars and Trump returning over and over and over, helped push me over to GMA. Your producers need to be replaced by those who have fresh, entertaining, creative and smart ideas to stimulate your viewers' minds in the morning. Thus far, you just aren't doing that. Don't find a scapeoat for your own shortcomings.
completely agree with you

I neither liked nor disliked Ann. She was just there. But after what the bigshots did, I'm going to GMA tomorrow. Meredith got a two hour party, Ann got 5 minutes. I do wonder if Matt had something to do with it-he did just renew his contract.

How many years has it been since Matt announced that the Today Show was going to 3 hrs (now 4) so they could spend more time on the stories and interviews? Never happened. We are lucky if we get an hours worth of news.

Well, NBC's nightly line up is going to hell, why shouldn't their morning show. Buh Bye!

I really like Ann....didn't like meridith and I already know I don't like savanah. Who's she sleepin' with that she got ann's job. I like Today, but I don't know if I'll watch it with her as co-host!

I have to DVR the show becuase the first 45 mins is the only tolerable part.
The rest is giggle time and doggie makeovers.
Natalie Morales is an airhead and awkward 100% of the time when they have to crosstalk and ad lib.
Anyone else hate Al Roker's "journalist voice" ?
How can he still not read the prompter in a natural way ?

Bring back the beauiful and talented Amy Robach.

Your right! Ann was the best one on the show. She had class and style. Matt Lauer should be replaced!
