Seacrest And Matt Lauer’s Job On Today
April 6, 2012 by staff
Seacrest And Matt Lauer’s Job On Today, Matt Lauer is staying with “Today,” he confirmed on Friday’s show. “This is my family. I love this job,” Lauer told Ann Curry and Al Roker. “I love working with you guys, all the people behind the scenes. I’m excited. Let’s keep going.”
Curry led her co-workers in applause for Lauer. Lauer’s decision to stay is very good news for the NBC program, which is in a tight ratings race with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“Today” has used stunts this week to keep viewers and the media talking about the program while “Today” alum Katie Couric filled in for a vacationing Robin Roberts at “GMA.” Former Gov. Sarah Palin co-hosted the 8 a.m. hour of “Today” on Tuesday, and “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest joked with Lauer about their futures on Wednesday’s show. Seacrest dismissed reports that he might succeed Lauer.
“I see you doing this for as long as you want to,” Seacrest told Lauer. “So maybe the question is: How long will you be on the ‘Today’ show?”
Seacrest said that he thought Lauer should remain at “Today” for years to come, and that is evidently the plan. With the Lauer announcement on Friday, “Today” found another way to upstage “GMA” and Couric.
Now the big question is: Will Curry be staying with the show? Networks need fall guys, or gals, for tightening ratings. Curry, who succeeded Meredith Vieira, could be blamed for not keeping “Today” in a comfortable margin ahead of “GMA.” But always remember: These programs are group efforts, and Curry has contributed to the 850 straight weeks that “Today” has been No. 1.
