This guy has become so arrogant and star struck that he took a network franchise leader into the gutter. ABC now kicks his ass and many local shows like "Good Day Oregon" on KPTV beat both morning shows. When Couric left the set at Rock Center it was over, then came her replacement who held the numbers quite good, the hatchet was Ann Curry who had as much sizzle as a broken waffle maker. Now they bring in this ditz with zero camera appeal and the show is in the dump. Good Morning America is leading with 1.4 million more viewers. The word is, Lauer has created a tense set, wanted Curry gone and got his way, only to be replaced by a minor league talker. This show is in serious trouble. Watch when they laugh it up on set, it looks like the tele- prompter reads LAUGH AND LOOK LIKE YOUR NOT MISERABLE.
