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 ...

It's nice that he is on Anne's side, but losing his own job isn't going to make things even.

Ann Curry was a no talent condescending imbecile and Roker is just as pathetic. As the saying goes "birds of a feather flock together".
Can't stand either one of em. One down, one to go. Ha!

Not very smart Al but I do admire and agree with your position. I would have problems sucking up to
s_ _t head Lauer as well. Miss Curry...she was a class act.

The question shouldn't be 'is he out for revenge'. It should be "is he justified?"

Al - You're days are numbered. Who needs a weather man when you have the internet to access real-time info? Be happy your over paid arse is still employed. Are you even a meteorologist or just a weather jackas?

No one cares about that nerd Al Roker anyways. Fire him too. He is humorless, has no edge and is a complete fake. I watch the Today Show for Matt Laurer; and no one else.

I used to love Al, now not so much. He has become a really arrogant a**hole.
