Al Roker

Search & Destroy Mission

Against 'Today' Show

8/23/2012 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Al Roker is doing everything he can to undermine the "Today" show ... trashing the anchors, sabotaging live moments ... and it seems to be a part of a plan to avenge the firing of his bestest friend in the world, Ann Curry.

Roker went on the offensive again this morning ... trying to fire off another zinger at Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie during a live segment ... but this time the quip was more of a misfire.

Al was trying to explain why he pulled a weird frozen face for 17 confusing seconds during a live segment last week ... and when Savannah tried to joke about Roker being a perfect fit for a wax museum, Al shot back ... "We ARE in a wax museum, so it all works out pretty well."

Not funny, but it's obvious Al -- who is SUPER TIGHT with Ann -- is so desperate to rip the show ... he's firing off zingers, even if they don't really zing.

It's just the latest in a string of anti-Lauer behavior, which began after Matt railroaded Ann Curry off the show simply because he didn't like her. Last week, Roker accused his colleagues of throwing people "under the bus."

So, we gotta ask ...

Good going Al, except it's not about the anchors. Ted Turner was right. The NEWS should be the star. Speaking of news....look what most reporters missed about scary Todd Akin.
">How could reporters all miss this?

Actually, I think you may have it wrong, TMZ. I think it wasn't a dig, but Roker was referring to the fact that the Today show cast has replicas in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum. There were a couple of segments on it last year, including one where the real Al posed with his wax castmates, then surprised tourists.

Matt Lauer is done, stick a fork in him. Al Roker is a riot! LOVE that look on his face. Savannah Guthrie is a d*uche-HAG and needs to be fired as well. I'm SURE Today Show has lost many loyal viewers by now. I'd rather watch Josh Elliot on GMA!

Well someone should voice their concern and discontent about Ann Curry's firing because she WAS thrown under the bus! The good news is that I think most of us now see Matt Lauer as the cruel and vindictive man that he really is. Today's ratings are down - way down - and Good Morning America's ratings were #1 last week, I believe. I tried watching the Today show last week and it has lost its luster for me. Good Morning America is much more fun and upbeat - what one looks for in a morning show. Glad to see that Karma (with a capital K) is visiting Today, especially Matt Lauer. And speaking of Matt, isn't it time for him to retire and go away? He's turned into a crotchety old coot!
