Matt Lauer

There is NO BEEF

With Al Roker

EXCLUSIVE

091212_matt_lauer_launch
Matt Lauer does NOT believe Al Roker is trying to sabotage the "Today" show ... despite his crazy antics ... telling TMZ that any talk of a riff between Al and the show is nothing more than a "rumor."

Matt was on his way home from the gym in NYC yesterday when we asked about all of the drama with the "Today" show ... including the fact that rival "Good Morning America" has TAKEN OVER as ratings leader in the morning news war.

"We feel the heat every day," Lauer says ... "but we have for the last 20 years that I've been there."

"We're just trying to do the best show we can do every single day ... and I think we're doing a good job right now ... and I think the cycle will reverse."

As for Al Roker's pattern of bizarre behavior on the air since his good friend Ann Curry was fired from the show ... it's clear Lauer doesn't seem too concerned about the situation.

All-capping the double negatives is a double fail.

Bet they lost viewers yesterday when they did not observe a moment of silence for 9/11. They aired Kris Jenner talking about her new boobs instead. Epic fail!

Hey Matt, did you ever stop and think that it was your fault the ratings fell and not Ann's. How could you mess with Al.

I hope that they get some flap from the public when they decided to talk to pimp mom and her boobs than honor all the people that were killed on 9/11 I will never watch that show again.

Would be a much better show without Matt. The cycle will reverse when Matt is shown the door....

I would not believe one word Matt Lauer ever had to say. He lacks any moral character.

Can't believe the show and him are still on the air. Who in the hell watches this mess anyway? He's an idiot with no hair. BOYCOTT the show, time for something new...with hair!

Good Morning America has copied everything the Today show has done over the years. Like: outdoor audience, Friday concerts..etc. If GMA was original maybe they get a star for being number 1, they just copycats.

The problem with the ratings is Matt Lauer. Will NBC ever figure it out?
