Ann Curry on Today Show Ratings Decline: Yay!

by at . Comments

Ann Curry couldn't help by cry when she made her final appearance as co-host of The Today Show.

But in light of that program's steady decline in the ratings, sources now say the only tears this reporter is shedding are those of joy.

"Ann feels completely vindicated by The Today Show's poor ratings since she left," an insider tells Radar Online. "She feels she was fired completely unfairly and wasn't given a fair shot at the gig."

Indeed, Savannah Guthrie has taken over for Curry, but Today continues to lose out to rival Good Morning America.

"Ann feels she was made a scapegoat by the network and that it's the whole show that needed an overhaul, not her replacing," added this source, saying Curry is especially peeved at Matt Lauer, who many say was responsible for giving his coworker the boot.

"There's definitely no love lost for Lauer, who she feels threw her under the bus completely."

i have not watched the Today Show since they got rid of Ann Curry. I now tune into GMA and love it. It was horrible the way NBC treated Ann.

(continued) I'll be trying Good Morning America & CBS This Morning. Oh, and the other stale annoying Rokerism is "Sunday, Sunday." Boooooring. And Annette, I wouldn't be worried about Natalie. It looks more like Matt & Savannah are the ones busy making goo goo eyes at each other.

I have been a fan of the Today show for 20 years and Ann was one of the best. What a disappointment, a complete lack of respect for a great reporter, Ann cared, had compassion and a real concern for the people she interviewed. Matt you should be ashamed. You have lost me NBC, I hope your ratings continue to fall.

Ann Curry was a terrific news desk reporter, but she was not a good co host of the show. She and Matt never had the chemistry that Matt and Meredith had. Once Ann joined as co-host, I must say that I watched the Today Show with much less frequency.

I hope Ryan Seacrest replaces you sooner rather than later, Matt. The way you treated Ann Curry is shameful.

The cruelest example of professional execution against someone so clearly smart, unique, special, professional and multi talented. Ann Curry is a class act, replacing her with a 25 year old is stupid and astonishing.
I hope the ratings plummet fast and furious. I will never watch the Today show again!
