... is that your final answer?

NBC? Are you sure you want to pick D... Meredith Vieira?

Don't you want to poll the audience or call a friend or something?

Aren't you worried that she's too matriarchal for your morning show? Don't you see that she's a crow's foot away from Diane Sawyer? If we wanted to watch an over-manicured socialite glad-handing her guests, we'd watch Good Morning America?

But we don't. We want fun, adventurous, fiesty repartee to wake us up every morning. We want good-natured ribbing and mild sexual tension. We want the cool mom, not the good mom.

Yeah, but at least she's not Ann Curry or Campell "Lithp" Brown.

I have realized now -- alas, perhaps too late -- that my true love is not Ann Curry but Katie Couric. As I brielfy opened my eyes this AM and saw Katie fetchingly holding a chimpanzee and describing him as "the son I never had", I realized my (and America's) loss!! Oh Katie, please come back to us!

But Ann Curry is still beautiful, especially when her hair is long.

I don't know. She might not be so bad after all. I thought the choice was dubious at first too... until she started talking about orgasms at her press conference with Lauer.

"I'm going to have to rein myself in a little," she said. "I had 20 years of news where I never said anything. Now every other word out of my mouth is 'orgasm.' There must be something in between."

I say cheers to Meredith. At the very least, it will make morning tv a little more exciting for a while.

We will witness her struggle to get in good with the rest Today-show gang (Will Al Roker out-talk Star Jones? One wonders about the dynamic that will develop) and to cope with the Rock Center crowd (Will the Couric-loving people on the Plaza stone Viera the first time she steps out there?).

As long as they don't put Alexis Glick back on, I'm good.

Good luck, Meredith. You'll need it.

I love Ann Curry, she has more personality and experience. I don't know why she did not replace Katie curic. Maybe -she's not blonde or 100% caucasion? why wasn't she chosen?

At least Meredith doesn't have to put up with Star Jones or Joy Behar (who's the only person I've ever had the desire to punch in the face through my TV).

I don't know if having Meredith on the Today show is a good idea....she's just as equally self-absorbed as Katie, but she's just as genuine, probably even more so. But at least Ann Curry didn't get placed as the host of the Today show....I think she would do better for the CBS gig than Katie Couric.

Ann Curry paid her dues. She's a professional, she's attractive, and she clearly can do the job and keep the theme of the today show. May be they want to be GMA? Who knows. It does seem Ann got stiffed. Did the network go outside to replace Gumble? They took Matt from the newsdesk. It just doesn't make sense.

I am not poo-pooing, Meridth, but it's clearly a raw deal...But I think Ann is aware that more than anyone. She might have to do something like what Soladid Obrien did in order to get to the next level

Get rid of Ann "Cardboard" Curry! She is the most boring, dull and impersonal personality on the Today Show. Everytime I see her on the show I switch to something else. It's bad enough that she does the news. When she does other spots, it's even worse....Ugh! Dump Ann Cardboard!!

Oh Yes! Ann is so full of herself. She loves ( or can not help) over-talk her guests. It is obvious she and Al and even Matt do not like each other. I would not have her in my living room for a conversation simply beacuse without a script she would not know the time of day. I no longer watch the Today show , curry now thinks she IS the center of attention. Glick was sexy ,smart and fun to watch, Curry is a pain. Today got rid of Joe Woddy( except for voice over) best to pull Curry and replace with a sexy "smart" Hispanic woman. I actually would slap her if given the chance ..

You people are nuts. Ann Curry is wonderfully sexy--I mean REAL sexuality oozing from her brain and body. And now I notice she has abandoned her wedding ring. THAT would be good for all who love her as we would now have a chance!

What happened to your blog?
Did you stop hating Ann? I can't stand her and was looking for a support group online : (

Why not use your real name? Are you afraid of the backlash? While I love Katie, it was her choice to leave the show. Ann has already made a name for herself and doesn't need to "take over" Katie's spot. She's an excellent journalist, a great ambassador, and an all-around, superb humanitarian.

Why don't you stop wasting valuable space and just shoot yourself? You fucking MORON.
