Meredith Vieira on Matt Lauer Mess: NBC Blew It!

by at . Comments

Matt Lauer now has at least TWO people in his corner.

A few days after Kathie Lee Gifford expressed her support for the embattled Today anchor - even offering to run a full page ad in USA Today signed by hundreds of show staff members - Meredith Vieira has now come out and done the same.

Asked by The New York Post whether she will read Brian Stelter’s “Top of the Morning," a book that exposes the ongoing mess at Today, the former co-host said no, adding:

"It’s so personal to me. It’s my friends... Even if [NBC] blew it from a p.r. point of view, you’ve got to move on. I think what is happening to Matt is really wrong.”

And just what's going on with Matt Lauer?

The reporter still has his job, but ratings for his program continue to flounder. Today is consistently defeated everyday now by Good Morning America.

He has come under fire for his role in Ann Curry's firing and many believe he ought to be replaced by Lester Holt or some other option. What do YOU think?

Should Matt Lauer be fired?

Sorry Matt but you should've been fired instead of Ann, Karma is a b$tch you're a has been. Good Morning America.... the Today show is more yesterday than today the show has lost its fizz, flat and tasteless. I would rather watch sesame street than that Today CRAP.. Where in the world is Matt Lauer and when they find you PLEASE STAY THERE, preferably Antarctica

Ann Curry was always better as a news correspondence than a co-host, but if Matt Lauer has the clout he thinks he has, he should have encouraged NBC to keep her in that category. She was skilled, warm and had a real talent interviewing and getting the best out of people.
