'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.

my classmate's mother makes $84/hr on the internet. She has been fired for 10 months but last month her check was $8514 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read about it on this site CashLazy.com

I hope their rating plummet after people find out that ABC paid Casey Anthony's lawyer fees and help let a baby killer go free!

So they barely edge them out once in 16 years and they throw a massive party?! No wonder they're almost always second place: they really don't set the bar very high.

Where's KOOKY?    

GMA is the worst excuse for a morning show in the history of daytime TV. Sometimes while the Today show is in a commercial break, I'll flip over just to see what crappy nonsense GMA is spewing. George S. always looks like he's totally out of his element; that Josh whomever guy looks like he's got a chronic eye infection; Sam C. with his annoying guffawing is just creepy; Lara is such a lightweight; Robin's okay, although her condescending voice is tiring. Their news is fluff and they focus on the most superficial of stories. A real indicator as to how this country is headed in terms of the dumbing down of America.

Winning ratings one week means nothing. The question is: Can they keep the ratings up?.... and that answer is. NO.

considering who the Today show has been booking for guests the last few weeks, it serves them right.

Ummm...I wouldn't consider celebrating the fact that you were losing for 16 consecutive years. Besides, you bastids at ABC helped a child killer go free.

I like how there's an article about ABC gloating because they're ratings were up. For once. And then another article explaining how ABC paid for Casey Anthony's trial. Hope you enjoyed the party guys because it sounds like your ratings are about to drop again!! S***bags.
