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.

Really tired of seeing Matt Lauer as well. Time to can him as well. give the job to Al Rooker...now he's got the personality for being an anchor. I dont know what you ppl see in Matt. Never liked him since day one..hes a fake.

She looks like a cupie doll. A little too cutsie for my tastes. But I'm sure the creature of habit loves her.

They aren't really saying anything. So far it is boring and annoying. I think she looks like she is fake flirting with him just to boost his ego. She seems to giggle at every little cutsey remark he makes, with a big smile on her face. I think an was more serious, so it would tend to make you wonder what was Matt really saying and really up to. You expect to hear something serious. Now I guess he thinks he can coast on amusing Savannah with his little observations and witticisms or whatever.


If you want to avoid all the cutesy drama, read your news instead. Then you don't have to worry about personalities, just worry about the news.

Not watching anything NBC...It wasn't Ann that should have been let go, it was Matt, the cheating liar that will screw anything moving. Hopefully, ABC will continue to win this ratings blowout!!!

Won't be watching just because of his attitude. Can't stand him after what he did to Ann.

Ughhh...hate this show now. Never gonna watch it again. Lauer is as crazy as Tom Cruise. How ironic.Watching HIM is uncomfortable. I feel sorry for Al Roker. He's a nice affable guy. Does he know he's on a sinking ship??
