Matt Lauer To Be Fired by The Today Show?!?

by at . Comments

Has the axe come down on Matt Lauer?

According to The National Enquirer, the veteran Today Show host will soon be fired from the morning program, partly due to its floundering ratings and partly due to his relationships off camera.

"Matt is finally getting what he deserves," says the insider. “His years-long feuds with former co-hosts Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry have taken their toll. Everyone has turned against him and Matt is going to be is going to be ousted."

The Ann Curry firing remains a polarizing issue for Today viewers and producers, with everyone agreeing it was handled poorly and many stating Lauer was responsible for the move.

With Good Morning America winning the ratings battle after years in second place, Today recently announced that Alexandra Wallace will replace Jim Bell as Executive Producer.

The new boss is unafraid to "ruffle Lauer's feathers," reports this show insider, and may very well let go of the main man behind the desk.

Lauer's most likely replacement would be Lestor Holt.

What would you think of this move? Should The Today Show fire Lauer?

Fire Matt. He isn't worth the money he makes or to watch. Bring back Ann Curry. She is sweet, knowledgeable and very pleasant to watch. When Ann comes back I'll come back to Today. Other than Al the rest can go too!

The show is not worth watching anymore. Fire Matt Lauer and the new ones too. It's like a fantasy-land made for the benefit of nobody but Matt Lauer anyway, so I watch CNN ever since Ann left. It makes me wonder why they fired Ann and not Matt. He is just not a likeable anchor and the show's ratings are showing it.

Fire Matt. I met Ann once and she was as nice as she was enjoyable to watch on tv. Ann should get Matt's anchor position and pick her own staff. I dont watch the show after Ann was fired and cant stand the sight of Matt Lauer. Yuck

Matt Layer needs to be fired. HIS SMUG ATTITUDE TOWARDS BOTH COWORKERS AND GUESTS HAVE RUINED THE TODAY SHOW! I stopped watching after his twisted smile while Ann Curry was being FIRED! Get real he is just another over paid jerk laughing all the way to the bank at how blind the Network Executives are to the TRUTH!

it's Al Roker that needs to be fired, he is annoying to say the least.

Thank Goodness! NBC and the Today Show really need to get it together. I haven't watched since Ann's firing. I hope they send Matt off in the SAME manner. So much damage has been done to the reputation of the show I'm not sure I would watch it again, anyway. They need to revamp the whole show, start fresh. Still leaves a bad taste !
