'Today' Show

Savannah in Ann's Chair,

But Mum's the Word

6/29/2012 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062912_guthrie_opening_today_launchSavannah Guthrie was alongside Matt Lauer on "Today" this morning … in the barely-cold chair that once belonged to Ann Curry ... but producers wussed out on making it official.

In fact, the beginning of the show was highly irregular -- the announcer always intros the anchors, not today on "Today."

TMZ broke the story -- Savannah has already inked her deal to replace Ann ... this after Meredith Vieira turned down an offer to return to the show.

Now it's unclear when the announcement will be made. We're told Matt is on vacation next week ... ditto for Al Roker. 

Well, at least there will be plenty of time for the announcer to nail that new open.

Personally I can't understand how anyone can watch this biased, Hollywood gossip show with a tool like Matt Lauer hosting it.

The way he looks at her makes me think something's going on between those two.

This situation has caused me to lose any respect I had for Matt Lauer. He needs to check his ego, and learn to work as a team player.

Who cares about any of this? D bag Lauer won't be happy with anyone. It's only a matter of time before he runs this chick out. Why don't they just get another dude on there so Lauer has someone to make out with after each taping?
