Panicked NBC Asked Guthrie To Return Early From Maternity Leave

[ Edited ]

According to today's NY Post, NBC was panicking at the Today's show ratings freefall to GMA and asked Savannah to come back early from maternity leave.   Also according to the Post, that didn't help NBC's ratings fall much.  

 

Makes you wonder whether NBC did hire Megyn K. to bolster ratings?   If so, it is probably going to be disappointed.  It seems like the morning show drama never ends!

I don't care who any of them have on, I'm just not a fan. I like  Charlie Rose, so I will occasionally watch CBS, but in the AM my tv is off. I'm sure that it is hard to get the right chemistry for these shows, but they always seem awkward to me.

I agree, I'm not a fan of the morning shows, either. Too many people and too much mixing of important news and garbage news.

@ChynnaBlue  You nailed it.

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

It's so annoying.

 

There's a time and place for serious news AND for humor or entertainment news, but the way they splice them together often feels so inappropriate to me.

I think they are making a HUGE mistake with Megyn K - I think their ratings will plummet when she bumps the 9:00 hour people and comes aboard - at least I am hoping so!  I hate that they bumped Al and Tameron Hall - it was not fair at all.

All the morning shows are odd. I just go to Fox and Friends. Makes me happy to hear the truth.

It's a great day in the neighborhood. Mr Rodgers
