:lol: Why does it matter if you don't watch? That's like being happy a show's canceled that you don't watch.

I could see someone being happy a show he/she doesn't watch get cancelled. Because that opens the time slot for a program that may be liked.

Ahh good point.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

But the show goes on ... and Ann will be stopping by every once in a while to present a story.

(Unless he's hoping Hoda gets the seat on Today and Regis pairs up with Kathy Lee again.)

I for one am sick and tired of Ann Curry's inability to read/speak on the Today Show. She can't get a paragraph out without messing up.

I fully admit that I couldn't do that job, but I'm not a TV performer.

Does she bother anybody else but me?

She must, because there been rumors Hoda Kotb is going to replace her.

I was not an Ann Curry fan, but wow did NBC throw her under the bus or what??? She got only five minutes of air time to recognize her 15 years of service to the Today show, and it was awkward, awkward, awkward on that couch and set!!!!

Yeah... I don't have a horse in the race, as I don't watch any of the morning shows anymore... but it's very rare when success or failure is due to only one person.

If Ann was ill-suited for the show, then someone else dropped the ball in going with her in the first place. A good producer puts the stars of the show in a position to succeed... and part of that means casting people that fit the mold. If Ann was not a good fit from the start, that's as much the people who hired her's fault as it is hers... and you can't blame her for taking a job and hoping she grows into it.
