Kathie Lee Gifford

If Matt Leaves 'Today' ...

We'll Revolt!

5/21/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kathie Lee Gifford
says there will be a "revolt" at NBC if the powers that be allow Matt Lauer to leave the "Today" show, telling TMZ ... she'll do whatever it takes to keep him around.

Kathie Lee was leaving Rockefeller Center in NYC Monday morning when she made it clear -- she thinks Matt has been unfairly demonized in the media in the wake of Ann Curry's firing.

Kathie tells us, she wanted to buy a full page ad in an NYC newspaper defending her longtime co-worker, but Matt talked her out of it.

Bottom line, if Lauer ever gets ousted ... Kathie no happy.

Matt Lauer is good but not good enough to overcome the damage he did to the Today Show. Savanah Guthrie is probably nice but not a good fit. kathy Lee needs to go.
Natalie is a fantastic news person and interviewer and Al is great also.
NBC should listen to their viewers. There is a reason that they are not #1!!!!!

So revolt.. A tantrum can't save Matt Lauer. When he leaves, I'll watch the Today Show again.
