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.

NBC jumped the shark with this gaffe. Now I don’t believe in the show, period. Matt should have left when Couric left. Meredith probably thought Ann always deserved the job in the first place, and felt out of place. Matt and Guthrie are kind of sickening together. I can’t watch them. At least Ann gave Matt and the show credibility, I think because of her genuineness. I was starting to notice how much classier Ann seemed than Matt, and was thinking she would make a good candidate for the evening news, or maybe a good sidekick for Brian Williams because her voice is deep enough for the evening news, unlike Matt’s voice. Matt probably realized Ann should eventually get tapped for the evening news job, so he wanted her out now. I.m.o. Savannah doesn’t have enough personality for morning or evening, and should probably just be used for legal pieces. Also, Savannah's hair looks a little greasy. Ann’s hair always looks fresh. It even looks pretty when its messed up.

Matt Lauer is the lowest of the low.
Cannot for the life of me see why he is a celebrity, he is sooooooooooo Unlikeable and snooty.
True Ann C. was not a good match, but still Lauer SUCKS.
I never could stomach him.
