In Guthrie’s First Full Week as Co-Host, NBC’s ‘Today’ Has a Fight on Its Hands

Jul 13, 2012  •  Post A Comment

If NBC’s aim in replacing Ann Curry with Savannah Guthrie on the “Today” show was to pump up the morning show’s numbers in its ratings fight with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” the first week has not gone well.

"Today" is poised to lose out to "GMA” for the week, TVNewser.com reports. For the week so far, "GMA" is ahead of "Today" by 360,000 total viewers, and in key news demo of adults 25-54 the ABC show is ahead by 40,000, the story notes.

"Because this is Savannah Guthrie’s first official week as co-host of the morning program, the shows are under extra scrutiny," the article notes. Final numbers for the week will be available Thursday, July 19.

  1. WELL IT’S NBC THEY WILL FAIL THEY ARE LOOSERS!!!! ALL THE WAY!!

  2. Anyone who can’t even spell ‘losers’ correctly shouldn’t throw stones.

  3. NBC News “Management” should again take the bow, (and the hit), for the decision to put Ms. Guthrie in the co-host seat.
    She’s a brilliant legal reporter…not a host. She is, likewise, a suitable sometime fill-in anchor for Brian on Nightly News.
    She is not a host…they’re going to have to go outside their cadre to find the next host.
    NBC needs to rid their executive ranks of the dead weight that is making poor decisions, blowing rating points and burning millions up like white phosphorus paper.
