Al Roker

Search & Destroy Mission

Against 'Today' Show

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

082312_roker_today

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 ...

Al is going to bust Lauer's balls until NBC lets him out of his contract. Once Roker is gone, the ratings will plummet.

Good for Al for finally saying enough is enough with this woman chasing dirt bag and his fake persona. Ann was an awesome real anchor who reported the news not tried to sit and look pretty. Savannah makes me SICK !! Go Al !!

I wish people would TWEET their comments, send letters or emails, it really helps! People have to show how unhappy they are with their viewer power! DON'T watch the show. This should be about busines and it's about personal BS Im going to Tweet this article too

Al is so right.... Really they should have gotten rid of Matt instead of Anne.... Matt thinks he is all that.... Well.... He isnt

That's definitely a "What an idiot" reaction to Savannah's comment, regardless of how you characterize the wax museum comment.

As much as I would love to give Al credit for sticking up for Ann, I don't believe he is at all. The Today Show hosts actually have wax figures at Tussaud's and he has tweeted that even though he loves and misses Ann, his comment has nothing to do with the way Ann was mistreated.

roker is a racist and an A$$ Hole. They should fire him so he can hang out with Ann curry. I wonder if Mrs. roker minds that he is going to lose his job for defending a girl friend

sorry matt lauer - but YOU are the common denominator in failing ratings. the only ones that don't know this is, evidently, the network. curry is far superior to lauer and thinks with only one head.
