Savannah Guthrie

Officially Co-Anchor,

Lauer Gets Anchor Wood

7/9/2012 5:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


0709_today
Call it morning (show) wood ... but Matt Lauer was SOOOO excited about introducing Savannah Guthrie as his new "Today" show co-anchor ... he could barely sit still.

With a giant "Thank god Ann Curry's finally gone" smile on his face ... Lauer said he was "pleased to be sharing this new day" with Guthrie ... noting, "We're all very happy" about the change.

Guthrie said it's "an honor" to be sitting next to Lauer.

Just don't piss him off.

Matt may be all sunshine and rainbows now, but if Today's ratings continue to tank, he'll have Savannah booted out of that co-anchor chair so fast, she'll leave behind a trail of dust.

And they were 69ing an hour before the show. This "woman" already broke up one marriage and has been married 2x, the next victim is this bald-a$$ cheater. They are sleeping together and he slept with the other lady on the show as well (not Veira). Lauer is the most overrated TV personality in history, even over Snooki.

I don't watch these shows but I like her. I think NBC made a good call.

Savannah did a good job and Matt is good as well. I just wish she would change her hairstyle....not a fan of the hair.

I watched the Today show out of habit for years but switched to GMA because Lauer is just getting so arrogant..
The way they publicly dumped Ann Curry and here he is falling all over this woman is just how I feel about Lauer.
No heart , it is all about him.,

It's sickening how happy Matt is to have Savannah there and to be rid of Ann.

Guess what Matt, you are actually the POS who has brought the ratings down. Ann will have the last laugh. But hey, I would like to see you succeed so I've got a suggestion on how you could boost your ratings. Do another of your stupid segments on 'Where the Hell Is Matt' by traveling to Iran. Hopefully then you'll get stuck over there and never return.
