Watch Matt Lauer’s Awkward & Icky Interview With Miley Cyrus On “The Today Show”

Alright, I think it’s time to start a petition to ban Matt Lauer from interviewing young famous women on “The Today Show.” It rarely doesn’t tread into uncomfy territory. (Remember when he asked Anne Hathaway about her vagina?) This morning, in between singing her hit songs “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” Lauer interviewed Miley…

Matt Lauer Acts Smug While Interviewing Trayvon Martin’s Parents

I never thought I would agree with Tom Cruise about anything, but dammit if Matt Lauer isn’t the smuggest, most terrible interviewer. On Thursday’s “Today Show,” Matt Lauer interviewed Trayvon Martin’s parents Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton.

Details Of Ann Curry’s Reported “Today Show” Bullying Will Make You Gasp

Poor Ann Curry. She was not only publicly fired from her cohost position on “The Today Show,” but she then had to sit there and weep about it to Matt Lauer — who probably couldn’t wait to see her go. But apparently that was far from the first time the show had humiliated her. Behind the scenes, Ann was reportedly dealing…

Anne Hathaway Handles Matt Lauer’s Icky Question About Her Vadge Flash With Total Class

Eww, Matt Lauer. “Anne Hathaway, I’ve seen a lot of you lately.” Really? The “Today Show” host kicked off his interview with the “Les Miserables” actress with a pervy reference to the bare crotch shots that hit the web yesterday, taken when Hathaway exited a car at the movie’s NYC premiere and apparently wasn’t wearing…

Why Ann Curry Really Got The Boot

If you thought things seemed a little, well, cold between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry on her final Today show appearance, there’s good reason for that, a source tells Us Weekly: “Matt Lauer is 100% behind Ann leaving,” the insider claims.

Ann Curry Says A Tearful Goodbye To “Today”

Not for nothing, but I think Ann Curry is getting the ass end of the donkey here. Sure, her celebrity interview style was a bit uncomfortable to watch, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished journalist with a lifetime’s worth of amazing international news coverage under her belt. This woman is one of our shining stars,…

This morning on “Today,” Matt, Meredith, and Al (do they even need last names anymore?) were introducing a segment about kids running around naked during the summertime. Meredith asked, “At what age does it become inappropriate?” and Matt, pausing to think for a sec, responded, “Sixteen?” Eww? Clip of the awkies moment above!

The Today Show’s Wacky Olympics Coverage

The Today Show’s coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been cracking me up. This morning they featured this troupe of Chinese old women who taught themselves hip-hop dance moves and yesterday morning, Al Roker and Matt Lauer showed off their skills on the dance floor, performing rhythmic gymnastics.
