In the wake of the Colorado shooting, Ann Curry has been tapped to co-anchor  "Today" this weekend along with Savannah Guthrie ... the woman who replaced her as co-host of "Today" earlier this month.

According to NBC, Curry and Guthrie will be traveling to Aurora, CO to provide "special coverage" of the massacre.

Matt Lauer will not be making the trip.

Curry's final day hosting "Today" came on June 28, after weeks of speculation about her ousting. Guthrie was named her official replacement the next day and took her first official turn next to "Today" fixture Matt Lauer on July 9.

This is Ann's forte. Guthrie is an eye candy talking head. Go Ann!

This really looks like NBC desperately trying to stir up drama in order to get ratings

When is NBC going to realize it Lauer and not the women on the show dragging the ratings down. What's his Q rating any one know?

A pitiful attempt by NBC to gain favor with the pissed off American public. Sorry, NBC, but you're going to have to get rid of Matt Laurer, in an equally humiliating manner as you did with Ann Curry, if you want us to watch your show again.

I have watched the Today Show for many years. However, after the way Ann was treated, I changed to Good Morning America. Not going to watch the two-faced people, sitting there smiling, as they stabbed Ann in the back. And, I've just got to say it - Matt comes off as a pompous @$$.

The show has still continued to drop in the ratings, so obviously it was not Ann's fault. Matt is always taking time off for this or that, and the show is boring without Ann. Savannah adds nothing to the mix. Bring Ann back, dump Laur and have Natalie and Ann co-anchor.

Special Coverage? It's over! What needed to be reported has been done.

While it is a tragic event, I'm sure everyone there just wants to regroup and move on and not be bothered with stupid reporters.

special coverage... yeah right

Ann ROCKS! Matt.... not so much *yawn*

Welcome back Ann. We've missed you. Can you please dig and report on what kind of idiot would have a three month old child in a loud theater at midnight? Thank Gid the child has been released from the hospital. The parent(s) should be investigated for child neglect.

After the way Ann was treated why would she come back to do a couple of days of co-hosting with her replacement? She's a better woman than I am... I wouldn't do it. That's like adding insult to injury.

Matt was awful covering the story at the Today show this morning. Now of course they still need Ann to hold Savannah's hand on field reporting. You're a mess, NBC.

I would laugh if the reason is Matt. I am Canadian, and I would watch because Today was good at one time. I don't bother anymore.
