Pamela Anderson must have had a good laugh this morning when Today show host Matt Lauer burst onto the show dressed up as Baywatch Pam for Halloween. Actually he has nice legs! Our favorites were Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie dressed up as Laverne & Shirley. Schlemiel, schlimazel!

Matt Lauer’s fierce and determined interview with Paula Deen in which he didn’t let her squirm out of a single important answer, brought to mind the rumor that he might be in line to take over Piers Morgan’s show on CNN. Today is still lagging in the sweeps and it seems like no one will ever let him forget about the Ann Curry firing. So a nighttime interview show might be looking pretty good to Matt about now. And Piers isn’t exactly breaking any sweeps or popularity records either.

NBC must REALLY be getting worried about the ratings on the Today show because they had the show’s executive producer make excuses for Matt Lauer to The Hollywood Reporter. Not only is the morning show in a ratings slump, but Lauer’s popularity is dimming fast. The unpleasantly handled replacement of Ann Curry by younger Savannah Guthrie caused their problems. Viewers just won’t forgive tyrannical Matt for dumping Ann and humiliating her. Let’s face it, narrow-minded male producers of the show probably think Matt is the GREATEST, and that females are interchangeable! They were shocked by this turn of events! Did it never occur to them that bald stodgy men surrounded by young beauty queens might NOT be what the public wants to see?

We are SO tired of hearing about how Ann Curry is being forced out of NBC’s Today Show because she and Matt Lauer “lack chemistry.” Actually Matt is concerned that ratings have gone down and rival Good Morning America actually beat them for a few days. Matt had to blame SOMEONE didn’t he? We suggest he take a close look at his lame producers who orchestrate absurdly unhealthy cooking segments on the show- loaded with fat and sugar and salt. These are followed by weight loss exercise segments and alarming obesity health warning segments. How do these anchors keep a straight face? While Matt Lauer has a questionable private life, Ann Curry comes across as decent, honest and very likeable. She’s unpretentious and gorgeous without having the hard edge of a beauty contestant. She’s the reason we put up with those inane cooking and cheezy fashion segments on the show. Ann has suffered brutal criticism for no reason and Matt should have addressed the issue like a gentleman and defended her. This whole episode is disgraceful. She’s a scapegoat and we predict Ann will go on to bigger and better things than Matt Lauer. TEAM CURRY all the way!
Time stood still for a few minutes this morning when Rob Pattinson appeared on The Today Show to promote his new movie “Remember Me.” The big question is: Will this movie be a success in any way like the Twilight series? (Rob plays kind of a James Dean type character.) How much of the Twilight audience went just to see Rob? We predict that Rob will pull in great numbers for “Remember Me” and prove that HE was the driving force behind Twilight.

Tom Cruise successfully made amends with Matt Lauer on the Today show. But nowadays, wherever Tom goes, anti-Scientology demonstrators show up with signs, and they’re getting more creative all the time. They’re always careful to be polite and non-aggressive, and make their points without being offensive. This protestor popped up outside when Tom arrived for his appearance.
