    Lauer is probably the biggest diva in America right now.

  2. Colu says:

    More MJF!

  3. hoya_chick says:

    HAHAHAHA get him Al!

  4. Fofototto says:

    Team Al!
    How long until Matt makes Today get rid of him too?

    • Kimmy says:

      That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking ! Team Al all the way .

    • marie says:

      I say they get rid of Lauer and keep Al!

    • CleaK says:

      Wouldn’t happen. As misogynistic as NBC/The Today Show is and as stead of a fan base as Al has, he’s perfectly safe. In fact, he’s probably the only one in any kind of a position to call out Lauer. And good on him for doing so.

  5. Phil says:

    Good ol Al. I’ve always loved the guy

  6. Relli says:

    If we could all vote and permanently ban Matt from doing color commentary at the Olympics that woudl be great. Seriously the man said so many stupid things during the Olympics i wanted to run through the TV screen and strangle him

  7. Nava says:

    Al, you are my hero.

  8. OrangeOprah says:

    Oops, Al is going to end going with a new “special” job at NBC like Ann Curry did. It is seriously time for Matt to move on!!

    • RHONYC says:

      i’m sure he could give a rat’s a*s… he’s got his gig on the Weather Channel & i’m sure ‘Wake Up With Al’ is bringin’ home the bacon along with his other assets.

      he & his fam ain’t goin’ hungry no time soon. 😉

  9. RHONYC says:

    OH. SH*T. that was awesome. he is officially a rock star. 😀

  10. Merritt says:

    I love Al, but I rarely watch Today because I cannot stand Lauer. He is horrible. But they seem hell bent on keeping him. Complete lack of personality.

  11. atorontogal says:

    Is there a female VIP in the higher ups Matt is doing? That’s the only answer as to why they are keeping this fool on TV. GO AL!!!

  12. I Choose Me says:

    Relieved to hear that Mayim’s alright and that she’s going to keep all of her appendages.

  13. Kloops says:

    Watch your back, Al!!

  14. NYC_girl says:

    I LOVED Family Ties and MJF. Cosby Show, F.T., and Cheers Thursday night. Good memories of high school and fun times.

    And Lauer is an insufferable bitch.

  15. Genevieve says:

    WOW…Kate Middleton can count the freaking OLYMPICS as 29 appearances/ public service?

    With HM growing older and dear DoE hospitalized AGAIN at 91, it is truly a terrifying reality that the monarchy may fall victim to the younger members of the RF.

    If you could rule a monarchy on the strength of hair extensions and non-stop vacays…then the UK should be in capable hands.

    Dear LORD.

    • Camilla says:

      With the queens death and Charle’s plans to already downsize the monarchy they might as well get rid of the royals altogether. Don’t get me wrong I love the queen but with all this planning to cut the princess royal (the hardest working of them all with the highest amount of time dedicated to charity), prince andrew and edward out it isn’t really fair. They were born to the monarch and I see no reason why they shouldn’t be allowed to be officially apart of the monarchy anymore. However there has been a whole bunch of complaining because Catherine is made to bow to princesses of the blood. It isn’t like the queen made the rules it is how it has always been done. Catherine barely does any engagements nor was she known to be a person who ever liked to work hard.. The public called her waity kaity for 7 years before will put a ring on her finger now they love her. The only person in that family that really deserves the respect and admiration is the princess royal. I never once heard a media report where she complained about being second fiddle to the medias fascination with Diana or even Sarah for a time, like Kate is towards having to bow to Alexandra of Kent and Beatrice and Eugenie. The Princess Royal is the highest of them all and she is humble. Too bad she couldn’t get the crown from Elizabeth. I guess what makes for a good queen is one who has been labeled a fashionista like Catherine. People pay no mind to the Princess Royal because she is dowdy

      • BeccaZ says:

        I don’t like the idea of Princess Anne being pushed aside either. She goes about her business and doesn’t complain. I wonder about Edward and Sophie’s future. They haven’t worked in the public sector in a while. They’ve been working Royals. It does seem cruel to push them off the roster. I guess they can use their names to get jobs, but if they’re doing their part, I don’t see the problem.

        I just think neither William or Kate really want to do this grunt work. Showing up for galas and the Olympics is one thing but going to a small not-for profit to present a plaque is not exactly big time. It also irritates me that the older generation is doing all the work while the youngsters do very little…and they aren’t that young. 30 should be the age for Royal Work. I feel bad for Prince Philip. The man has given 65 years of his life to this work. Let him rest and indulge some of his own interests before he dies.

  16. Dana M says:

    Al’s the best! Love him!

  17. lucy2 says:

    Now THAT is funny. Way to go, Al!

  18. TheOriginalMaxi says:

    LMAO! Go AL!

  19. phoenix says:

    YES!!! Al is awesome.

  20. anonimouse8319 says:

    That’s not what Al said…he said it was a tradition around the Today show to throw each other under the bus…

  21. anonimouse8319 says:

    …and, there wasn’t nervous laughter…they all just plain old laughed…God what a created story…

  22. Kate Kite says:

    I don’t like Matt Lauer-never have. I do LOVE Ann Curry. She’s smart, funny and so, so pretty. Lauer needs to go!!! He’s a dick.

  23. HappyJoyJoy says:

    MEEEOWWW! Good for Al. Call a dick out when you see it!

    Best Colour Commentary ever:

    “would you call the colour grape or aubergine?”
    Clairee Belcher

    • Unbeweavable says:

      I was buying a new purse the other day and I said “Oh I love the purple accents” and the lady behind the counter said “oh it’s aubergine!”. I then talked Steel Magnolias with the sales lady. That was fun.

    • Kc says:

      Kay, that is the funniest comment I have read in a long time.

    • CM says:

      I had a great chuckle at your comment. I love ‘Steel Magnolias’.

  25. bea says:

    What’s Matt doing wearing a BRIGHT COLOR?! Or is that rule only for the ladies?

    He is charisma-less.

  26. RHONYC says:

    it’s also such a victory how Al laughs off Lauder’s dicky attempt to ‘reprimand’ him by saying “Mister R-o-k-e-r” (kinda like Agent Smith says ‘Mr. Anderson’).

    f*cking douche. 😡

    check sec :20

  28. DoMaJoReMc says:

    Does Chad Ochocinco’s mistress give anyone else that Casey Anthony vibe?

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah I can see that. This woman has two kids yet she’s spending her time tracking Chad’s availability on Twitter so she can hook up with him. Maybe not quite as despicable as Casey but pathetic nonetheless.

  29. JudyK says:

    Haaaaaaa…It took a minute for Matt to catch that and then his face went suddenly SULLEN.

    He SO deserved it.

  30. the original bellaluna says:

    Thank you, Al, for showing both Matt & NBC your opinion. 🙂

    Of COURSE Chad has a mistress! At least one or two..


    Mila, just stop. Methinks you dost protest too much.

    Oh, Kendall, you delusional little thing, you!

    Get well soon, Mayim.

  31. BaZaam says:

    Ya know, Hawkeye used to call Frank Burns “Ferret-face.” If ever there was a more appropriate heir to the title, it’s Lauer. For the life of me, I simply cannot fathom why NBC keeps the weasly character on the show — I loathe the guy, and it looks like a whole BUNCH of other folks do too. Oh, and I’m a guy — but I think it’s reasonable for me to add that I can’t believe for a minute that he’s drawing in female viewers…. just sayin’, ladies.

  32. Messenger says:

    i think matt is a big enough boy to withstand a little ribbing from the rokester…nobody knows all the reasons curry was let go, but there was probably more than one. imo she was the one that looked unprofessional on air. shunning his attempt to end the situation gracefully. crying and wishing she had had more time to prove herself etc etc. i understood it but it was hard to watch.

  33. skinanny says:

    change the station. So over Matt Lauer!

  34. Constantine says:

    Al Roker for President!! Americans adore the truth, therefore, we love Al Roker for being the only one to stand up for Ann Curry. Perhaps now, Pat Fili-Krushel, NBC’s newly hired Alpha Female over News, will go on and fire those two morons, Jim Bell and Steve Capus before they conspire against Al Roker and do him in. We love Al’s subconscious for slipping out right on time. Matt the Ratt Lauer and Snoozannah Guthrie should both be reassigned to Outer Mongolia!

  37. sonde says:

    Finally someone on the network who is genuine, has some integrity and knows a good newscaster was thrown off the show!
    You go on Al Roker!

    Sorry but since NBC has cancelled many of my shows and they did this to Ann Curry, I don’t watch anymore.

  38. Unbeweavable says:

    GO AL! That was awesome. And it was so funny how Matt and Savannah tried to stifle the fun with their “Mr. Roker” B.S. Hahaha.

  39. Aud says:

    And true.
    Lauer is a douchebag.

  40. Cleveland Girl says:

    If Al and the rest of the gang would have stood up for Ann, maybe she would still be there! THEy knew she was in over her head, and let Matt be the bad guy! She was awful as co-anchor. THE END.

  41. kibbles says:

    My opinion of Al rose tenfold. Hope more NBC workers “crack jokes” and come forward with stories of diva Matt.

  42. Mario says:

    I’ve never liked Matt Lauer, he always seemed like a gigantic prick and he behavior has confirmed it. I also can’t stand his hair, everyone acted like it was so sexy when he did that to himself and to me it just looked like he aged 30 yrs and not in a good way.

  43. kitty-bye says:

    Cheers! Spare us from having to see ML on TV!

  44. Mac says:

    Matt Lauer needs to watch his a$$.

    Up til now Lauer probably thought of himself as untouchable.

    If Al is now willing to essentially call him a snake on the set of Today then there might also be others who feel that Lauer is owed some payback.

  45. INeedANap says:

    Read the article about the Duchess of Eyeliner. Apparently, every sport she watched at the Olympics counts as an event! That is the cheapest cop-out I’ve seen yet to make that useless woman seem like a hardworking royal.

  46. CM says:

    Kudos to Al for telling it like it is. I don’t really watch morning shows. I never have, and I don’t think I’m alone. What really bothers me about Anne Curry being fired, is that she was blamed for the ‘Today’ show’s bad ratings. How very sexist and scapegoat-ish of NBC. That makes sense. I’m sure the drop in ratings has nothing to do with Today’s lack of interesting topics, people watching cable, and the change in our culture that promotes lifestyle, self-help, and empowerment TV.

  47. Al is my hero now! says:

    Wow, that took a lot of guts to say that. That is confirmation of Matt’s ways.

  48. jferber says:

    Don’t forget that Lauer has cheated on his wife for years. He’s a balding has-been who “thinks who the hell he is” (a Bronxism I love).
