Ann is the most unwatchable person on TV. She rambles, stumbles, bumbles, interrupts and has no chemistry with Matt. Never should've given her the job in the first place... time to move on and find a 'real' Co-Host.

Well, I didn't like Meredit V. either. I hated her on the view and I didn't like her with Matt. I think the only person who has had any chemistry with Matt was katie, but ironically, I don't like her anymore either. I'm not sure if Savahanna G. is the right person. I think Matt used to like Gretchen Moll, but I don't know where she is now.

I don't hate Ann, I just think that she is too slow and boring. Also, everyday I comment on how terrible her clothing is. She wears funny looking outfits, that are horrible.
I agree with katiebeach as far as Savahanna not being the right one for the job either. Get someone in there that is exciting.

I think Ann is better than the two previous co-host. I think the problem is Mr.Beeker,Bird Legs, Bald head. I don't see any thing about him that is quality.He is a snob and thinks he is better than all of us.How would you like for your co-worker to hate you enough to get you fired.I only watch Today when he is gone.I think Ann was better this week. I always thought they had way to many commercials ,now there will be 35 min or more per hour.Tell Mr.beeker thanks. I don' think S.G. Is the one either.

Please bring back Ann!!! The Today show is so boring, monotonous and lifeless without her. She is the best thing the show has going for it. Ann provides an empathetic perspective in her approach while the others are a bunch of stiffs.

P.S PLEASE don't replace Anne with Savannah Guthrie!! Her voice is annoying and they should think fresh like when they picked Meredith V.( my favorite :))

I agree that Ann is in over her head. They never should have given her the co-host position.

PLEASE do not give the co-anchor job to Savannah G. God, she seems so aloof, seems to give the air that she thinks every man around her is coming on to her.
NO warmth from her!!
Anne is the warmest co-anchor they have had. She is human!

Ann is considered boring because she is not a phony, narcissistic celebrity. Unfortunately, that's what keeps ratings high- self-centered, charismatic snobs like Lauer. Lauer will self destruct because he's risen so high people will eventually pull him down- mostly because he's a cheating adulterer and thinks his "you know what" doesn't smell. Keep Ann - she made it to the co-host spot because she is so likeable and she deserved the spot- it was a decision based on emotions rather than business acumen. The last thing I want to see is Savannah Guthrie- her voice in the morning is worse than chalk on a blackboard. Can't we all just get real?

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.

She is absolutely the best! She is funny intelligent and a master. The ratings will surely drop without her excellent broadcast expertise. Okay I was kidding she is a dolt the whole Today Show should be cancelled. IT SUCKS THEY DONT REPORT A F"ING THING!!!She is a MORON. She could not even pick Illinois out on the map. It's all a joke.
