Sheinelle Jones is not "anchoring" guest hosts well. Everyone is talking over each other. Laughing, running out to the plaza for fan give-aways. I wonder if producers ever listen to just the audio track. Unintelligible. I switch to MSNBC at 9am.
Star67tayloralee- You may want to check your spelling and grammar before you hit send. Your pathetic rant is not helpful to Miss Hall in the least. It's also another example of how ignorance and divisiveness go hand in hand.
EDIT: Here is one thing you need to know. Ms. Hall was not fired like Ann Curry was. Ms Hall was offered a multi-million dollar and multi-year deal to stay. She QUIT! They were NOT letting her go. She would still have been on air but not at the 9:00 slot. How unprofessional to not even say goodbye to her "so-called" fan base. So don't cry or be angry about her leaving. She did it to herself. We still have Shinelle who is so much more professional than Ms Hall.
fo:It's official, she is leaving both Today and MSNBC. Finally NBC is moving in the right direction
Don't cry for Ms. Hall. She was offered a multi-year and multi million dollar contract and quit in a snit because they took away her 9:00 hour which was as boring as hell. She left after she threw a temper tantrum. She was treated WAY better than Ann Curry who was offered nothing at all. and was made to cry on TV after finding out seconds before going on the air that she was being let go.
You all are nothing more than a bunch of hateful people,they did her wrong they will see will see their lost,i should have known nbc will listen to a bunch of white jealous people over a black successful woman who had high ratings,but she was too pretty too smart and had a good life you all happy about that,self petty at its worse you all could never kill her self pride,she was born with it she might be many things as you all say but a quiter she will never be .now you all can go do your hateful march somewhere else just plain old jealous and you all still dont have nothing to show for fact is that she is a successor at everything. she is not a lost and never will woman is stronger than wind this show is like the Titanic and it will sink and i hope you all be on it,at the bottom waiting with the other crabs.
Ps Tamron Hall you are a blessing to many keep going proud of you
I have watched the Today Show for over 30 plus years but I think i am going to check out another morning news show. I am so upset that Tamron Hall is leaving. She is one of the best Journalist and should be rewarded by NBC and not lost. I will not watch Megyn Kelly. If i wanted to watch Fox I would have watch them. NBC lost Ann C. then Natalie. I keep telling myself one more change and I am moving to another morning show. NBC I am putting you on notice this is the last time!!! Very upset over the changes.
I'm so glad the fluffy and giggly Tamron is gone. Sure she is a pretty face, but that doesn't make up for her lack of professionalism and childlike comments. Now maybe I can find renewed respect for Matt and Al and won't have to leave after the first hour. I was nauseated by her flirty favoritism of Al. What a relief. I hope Tamron learns that women don't have to be girly to get by. Womanly is a far better trait. Give it to us Meghan!
I have always been a fan of Tamron Hall. I felt she was the best in the daytime lineup and would make me occasionally check in to MSNBC during the day. The horrible election coverage which helped get Trump elected made me vow to never put on MSNBC in the daytime again but I sometimes made an exception for Tamron's show. For several years I had MSNBC on all day (and night) before this last election season when they became Trump's puppets. Now, there will be no reason to go back to the network (except for Chris Rachel, Lawrence and Joy Reid). Great job NBC- you've proven your right wing corporate agenda. Megyn Kelly instead of Tamron? Are you kidding? As for the Today Show, I've already switched to GMA. Goodbye.
Every time I see IT ( Tamron ), I change the channel. Point blank. After watching since the 70's, never have I considered watching another morning show until IT showed up. I can't stand the woman.. or whatever IT is. IT talks over everyone and thinks IT is more important than ITs guests. Piss off Tamron, Leave the show so we can go back to watching and actually enjoy the show like we used to. Have you read the comments? 90% of disapproval is because of IT. I'm watching CBS this morning because GMA is a mindless show with brain dead hosts. Get rid of IT and I'll go back to watching The Today Show.
EDIT: GREAT NEWS ! TAMRON IS LEAVING THE TODAY SHOW! -->
BYE-- CYA -- DON'T COME BACK -- Now hopefully The Today Show will be watchable again.
Every time I turn on the NBC Today show, there is nothing but the cooking segment every day. Give it up people. Are they (NBC producers/management) running out of news and ideas? To watch the whole crew sitting at the table 8:40 in the morning in the studio, eating whatever meal is being prepared in the studio above is pathetic. No entertaining value whatsoever. Combined income for these anchors has to be in tens of millions of dollars. No wonder the show is slipping in ratings. Bring some interesting people/news segments happening around the country and the world. There is plenty of exciting news out there to report. If I want to watch cooking channels I will watch the food network or infomercials, more exciting. Time to retire Matt. 9 0clock slot gets even worse, Totally boring hour of nothing! More cooking segments more empty talk about nothing. No wonder NBC is loosing popularity in the morning shows to ABC. Maybe Megyn Kelly will save the network with some real news hour. The network needs some serious overhaul in the morning shows anchor line up. It's becoming the most boring and expensive cooking show on the planet. Al's jokes are wearing out, he should stick with weather, rest of the crew is totally unwatchable. Wake up NBC! Save yourself millions of dollars, just hire some new fresh faces.
One could compress 3 hours of that hollow show to 30 minutes and still have difficulty watching the full 30 minutes of it. ABC rules!
New update, Tamron is gone! What about rest of the show's crew? Megyn on her own can not improve the ratings for that fading show. Hopefully NBC brass will bring new format, new ideas, new people for the first two hours to bring back the long lost viewers. No more cooking segments please! Time to retire Matt!
I had hopes that the Today show would get it together, I record it every day, it's such a normal in our home. Ive been holding on hoping that instead of only talking to half of America, maybe they would start talking to all of America. A bunch of friends stopped watching, but I kept on, I like Samantha and Matt. I had already stopped watching after 9, can't take Tamron. But seriously just can't watch a completely one sided show any more. There is no reason a news show can't have one Trump supporter and one non Trump supporter on their show. To sit and hear one sided bashing conversations all morning has gotten old. I don't mind listening to different opinions, as long as they have all opinions. The Today show goes out of its way to show why everything Trump does is wrong. When you never point out anything good, it becomes clear your playing politics instead of reporting news. You're losing half your audience, and that's a shame. I'll miss the routine, but not enough to keep holding on anymore.
I really could not understand how the exec producers of the Today show were not believing their own eyes and listening to their fan base. The 9 o'clock hour has been a disaster since Tamron Hall got involved. She poisoned the well for Natalie, turned Al into a blithering idiot and in general lost a significant piece of their loyal audience including me. This has just been plain terrible. It's almost too painful to watch. The Katie Couric visit as well as the recent Meredith guest host spots reminded everyone of how good the Chemistry can be. This week Natalie was back and the old gang seemed to be back in the groove.
Now I get it, you did listen. It remains to be seen whether Megan Kelly can fit into the morning environment but at least Al and Tamron will be put out of their us as well.
Kathy lee and Hoda have great chemistry and even though not my cup of tea, it works for their audience.
I don't think the Todays take group has ever developed as it was born of the Ann Curray disaster.
Like manny, I don't blame Tamron or think that she is a bad person. In TV, you just can't hide it, she doesn't fit and has alienated her coworkers and the fans who have enjoyed Today as a morning respite for many years.
I am so tired of the today show reporting news against President Trump. They are so biased. I have been watching the today show for over 30 years and I have finally had enough. Does anyone know where else we can leave our comments that might get back directly to NBC/the today show?
On the Today Show this morning, on 01/25/17, there were three remote newscasters, Ari Melber, Gadi Schwartz, and Peter Alexander that did NOT or would NOT refer to President Trump using his title of President, he has earned it.
Referring to the President as Trump, only. It's annoying enough that NBC's entire staff of reporters have a blatant distain for President Trump, but when reporters that are rarely on tv, except Alexander who is on daily, refer to our President only by his last name it is the last straw. I do know that NBC does not care if they lose a viewer whom has watched the program for over 40 years but I know I will feel better after posting this and plan to watch one of the other 3 networks from tomorrow forward.
I finally have had enough of The Today Show after many years and have turn to GMA. What a pleasant and refreshing show. Wake up NBC producers. Obviously all these negative reviews are trying to tell you what viewers think of your show. Tamron Hall is the main reason I'm now watching GMA. She is so full of herself. Always watching to see if the camera is on her. Has nothing interesting to say when she interjects her opinion. Get rid of her. I'd love to know the real reason Natalie moved to California but is still with NBC. I have a feeling it had something to do with Tamron.
Tamron Hall is decent on MSNBC, but just sucks the air out of the room on the Today Show. She's dim like the previous fashion plate who left, Anne Curry; no playful adlib skills, misses basic fun pop-culture references and brings everything to a standstill whenever playful banter is happening. NOT FUN. In short, the anti-Vierra. (I'd love to see Meredith come back full-time; she always fit in perfectly with Matt Lauer, Al Roker, and the other co-hosts. Sharp, witty, "gets
The Today show has always been my go-to morning show when getting ready for work; it still strikes a fairly good balance between the mostly-serious CBS This Morning (which is my #2) and the stuck-on-a-bus-with-loud-drunk-people atmosphere of whatever is going on at ABC. But chemistry is so important, and Hall is a DUD here.
Come on NBC lets fix this mess on the today show with Tamron Hall, Al Roker and who ever you decide to sit in the 3rd chair at 9, This is beyond awful, Tamron acts like a child, and her outfits are not the fashionista she thinks she is. You are heading down a dangerous road, but it is obvious no one is reading all of these concerns from your watchers, that are tuning in to other channels.
Time to change the channel when she comes on. Too many things to say why I do not like her on the TODAY show. She is so unprofessional in every manner and actually says many stupid things. It's embarrassing. I think Miss Hall does a wonderful job on reporting the news, and that is scripted for her. Please bring Willie Geist back.
Whatever happened to responsible, find all the facts, substantiate, we're not going to run that story until we get at least 2 Woodward and Bernstein? The Today show is a total hack full of unprofessionals who make decisions not based on ethics and truth but on ratings. I think Trump is a disgrace but no one should have to defend themselves against unsubstantiated charges. At one point in the Preibus interview Matt Lauer said "this story is either going to go somewhere or At which point Preibus should have said "That's the whole point: it hasn't gone anywhere yet so your whole line of speculative questioning is premature & pointless until you have an actual story". So unprofessional of Today to run with this line of attack. I'm sure they justify it by saying others are reporting on it... it's out there... so we have to report on it.... Duh. That is speculation by me of course but let's have them respond as they would have Trump respond. It simply solidifies their position as a news followers not leaders. Thanks to Today with the widest audiences having the lowest standards. Today show is a disgrace as so many correctly observe in these reviews.. and the reason so many will not watch .. along with the "Look at Me .. Look at Me" scenes stealing shouting matches for attention among the hosts led by Tamron .. trying to upstage each other by "who can talk the most" then peppering guest experts with preemptive questions that ruin the flow of the presentations. So shallow, annoying and unevolved.
Have watched Today for 50 years and been a loyal fan and supporter of changes in personnel thru the years. I thought NBC had come to their senses in the New Year, but Tamron was back this AM and for the first time I changed the channel. She is so self absorbed and unprofessional. I will be pushing the remote buttons until NBC gets it!!!!
You will get rid of Tamron Hall she is horrible. She is ok when just sticking to a script and reading it as is but when she goes on and on about her personal life that it so boring it makes me want to change the channel. You can tell Al thinks she is a dit-wit too. I was so upset when Natalie moved what a shame she was awesome on the Today show classy asset now we hardly get to see her. Hope you decided to make additional changes not just adding Meghan which I think will be a good start
This show just keeps making more and more bad decisions!!! They have a death-wish, going into the worst ratings now. But they have earned it.
They railroaded Ann C. ( like we wouldn't find out Matt???), bringing in Savannah (hope she had NO part in that previous disastrous political debacle), adding Tamra Is this to be HER SHOW, that is the only explanation for keeping such a self-absorbed unprofessional on the show!, let's add the 2 Bush's to the don't know which one is more who would say ANYTHING for the camera(????), and Jenna, who seems more interested in clearing up her Father!/ historic view (from his horrific presidency) Is this really a platform for Today Show?? Jenna couldn't even remember the movie's name for reference of her interview at the Awards!! YES, she is the new TODAY Journalistic representative....
This past week that Katie has been cohosting with Matt Lauer has reminded me why I quit watching the show. She likes to be in spotlight all the time. She interrupts steady and thinks she's so funny. I started watching Today again when Savannah come on and love her as well as Dillon. Please keep these girls on and keep Katie off.
