'Good Morning America'

Gloat Party

Good Morning America parties for beating the Today show in the ratingsFor the first time in 16 years, ABC's "Good Morning America" edged out NBC's "Today" in the morning show ratings last week -- and this morning, ABC News rubbed it in NBC's face ... throwing a champagne-popping victory party.

All the big swinging chicks at ABC were present ... including Robin Roberts, Diane Sawyer, and Lara Spencer -- in addition to ABC News President Ben Sherwood, Senior EP Tom Cibrowski, former "GMA" host Charlie Gibson, George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion ... pretty much the whole crew.

We're told Robin Roberts toasted the entire "GMA" team, saying, "We're the face of it, but it's all you. Everyone in this building is a team."

We're guessing the "Today" staff got bagels.

How sad, one week out of 16 years and they gloat!! Let them do it for 16 straight years and then let the gloating begin. I will no longer watch any network where Katie Couric is on, have always watched ABC and loved their newscast, but no more until Katie is GONE!!!

Why are the people at GMA bragging? What they accomplished is tantamount to winning the first 1/2 mile, only, in a 26 mile marathon. No one is impressed.

ABC is like the kid you beat in basketball 16 times, then he beats you once and thinks he is better than you.
