Reporting the news should not be about the reporter. She is self absorbed and only concerned with her looks and that the viewing audience knows who she had dinner/lunch/whatever with. She is rude to her co-hosts. She interrupts. She cuts people off. She is mean to her co-hosts and gets visibly defensive when she doesn't get her way. Do the producers not see this?
Please take TAMRON OFF!! Or many of your viewers will TURN OFF!!
I can't understand for the life of me how people can be so negative and not see the talent, skill, professionalism, that's topped with natural beauty. I have followed Kathie Lee Gifford since 1991, after the birth of my third child, and I haven't wanted to follow another talk show queen, until I saw and heard Tamron Hall. I am retired now and will not miss her. As a matter of fact, on my DVR I record her, so I won't miss her. I even fast-forward many parts of the Today Show, until I see her. Tamron, if you read these comments, I am impressed with your work and hope other viewers that enjoy your presence will make their thoughts known. Your presence is refreshing and I will continue to 'tune in'.
I'm sure Natalie is so glad to be leaving New York today, simply because she won't have to deal with the drama of Tamron. I've watched the Today Show for many years and every time I see Tamron on the desk I cringe. Camera hog. Giddy, silly high school behavior. Interruptor. Name dropper. I will say she is good solo on investigative reporting, but put her in a group setting and she feels compelled to be the center of the universe. I cannot imagine that NBC executives are blind to this and must be aware of the viewer reaction to her obnoxious behavior. For Pete's sake, PLEASE replace her with someone personable like Sheinelle Jones.
I alwas watch the show when she is on. She brings a happy side to show. Morning shows need all type of people to make a show successful. Also love what Natalie brings to show. She brings a balance from simple to serious.
This morning on Sunday Morning was one of the best shows I have seen on NBC news in the last few years. Willie Geist is very respectful of his panel and allows them to talk. No one is talking over each other. How very refreshing. If only the rest of NBC today show was like that. My favorite-Willie, Natalie, Dylan, Hoda. The rest I could do without.
The Macy's 4th of July Spectacular was ANYTHING BUT Spectacular because of Tamron Hall... she looked so uncomfortable and ill at ease it was difficult to found myself cringing... she is a Narcissist and her BLUNDERING performers names throughout the show, and FUMBLING in her heels... was just as bad as her umbrella comment! Poor Tamron... getting a little rain on her ... she should, she is all WASHED UP!
Watching her this morning again FLOUNDERING through basic reading about Beyonce and her swim was painful to view. I think this summer, for the first time, I will not be tuning into Today!
Watching the Today show on both weekdays and weekends is like being at the kiddie table on Holiday visits with relatives. Nothing of substance or in depth hard news discussions-iust endless babble while they yell and cackle over one another. Extremely unprofessional behavior-no decorum.
Any serious news Journalist would never work for such an outfit which is why I'm amazed that Harry Smith has debased himself to do so-he must be hard up.
The Sunday Today Show new format is an epic fail-again no hard news-unless you want your brain to turn to mush-there is absolutely no reason to ever watch any version of NBC's Today Show.
NBC's ONLY saving grace is Lester Holt-the rest I can do without.
NBC Today Show ditched Natalie Morales for Tamron Hall? Tamron is constantly interrupting, hogs the camera time, dominates any conversation, incapable of staying on topic, and constantly in motion. And if you think we have overlooked her angry looks at and over-talking of Natalie and Matt, you are naive. So much for Natalie was an informed, intelligent and well spoken journalist, had a family, was athletic, conducted excellent interviews and magazine pieces, did a great job of keeping paced guests on track... Guess those characteristics weren't needed because Tamron has none of them. This is a change of life for me. It was a motivator to have Today on TV while starting my day. The absence of Natalie will continue to leave opportunity of the annoying Tamron. All I can say is "Good Morning Bye NBC. I am severely disappointed.
Tamran Hall is an excellent journalist with style, grace and professionalism. She not only is the lead of her own CNN show, but also of her own show on Discovery Investigation . She's too A-list to have to sit next to either homely & BORING Savannah Guthrie or equally homely & BORING Natalie Morales. The reason people on here is because a vast majority of Caucasians have an inherent disgust for ANY Black person no matter HOW TOP NOTCH, they'd rather see the most mediocre Caucasian over ANY high achieving African American. Just like they can't tolerate seeing President Obama. Tamran outshines them all & the ratings will tell the story.
PLEASE consider replacing Tamron Hall. She is so unprofessional, constantly putting her foot in her mouth and annoying the other hosts, especially Al. Who cares if she was friends with Prince? This week defending Kanye and embarrassing Dylan was the limit. Yes, she is a perky, attractive African American female, but surely you can do better. I've been a faithful viewer for over 25 years but you are about to lose me.
Why are they having Tamron Hall host with Matt while Savannah is on vacation?! I can't take it. I stopped watching the 9 o'clock "Tamron Needs Attention" hour, but we can't honestly be expected to tolerate her overbearing lack of professionalism beginning at 7am. What a slap in the face to Natalie who has been there for years. Sigh....
Why have you banished Natalie from the "Throne Table"? This morning ( Wednesday, the 29th) you put her with her back to the camera. Shame on you Tamaron was placed as the lead female anchor. Unfortunately, she is not very smart, nor well enformed, laughs nervously and is too silly. I never know when she is serious. Natalie has presence, is intelligent, and has a good sense of humor. I believe her.
What is going on? Every day you have had somone new at the"Golden Table" for the early part of the Today Show. Is there an audition for Kathy Lee going on ? This is an assumption that she is retiring soon. You should tell the viewers if this is what is going on.
Saturday's anchor chemistry is so awkward, primarily with Craig Melvin who appears to be a control freak with the female co-anchors and is way too serious. Everything is so scripted, obviously, compared to competing shows whoch are much more enjoyable. Dylan Dryer should replace them all on Saturday, she is always cheerful, comfortable, and genuine. Sundays may have just changed to be just Willie Geist, who is a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of them during the week and the weekend. The producers never seem to get it --continually changing the anchors. Maybe NBC should look at replacing producers/management to make real lasting change because they have zero creativity or understanding on their viewers. The shows "BIG" changes over a year ago were unnoticeable, think they added social media commentary and the pot supporting aging partier, Carson Daily. The shows producers appear to have no clear direction. Who is responsible for the constant crappy changes?
I like the show and have been a long time veiwer. The only thing that drives me nuts is the tacky, weird clothes that Savannah wears. She seems like a large boned woman, so these flowery dorky outfits make us notice - not her content, but how
I will change the channel as soon as everyone starts eating. I do not want to watch people talk with their mouths full and smack and lick fingers. its just not polite. Also how is it that you all get to taste $1,000 or more cupcakes etc. It just doesn't work for me. I want to hear news not people eating laughing and talking over each other.
I am not trying to be mean or attack Jenna but the show really needs to open their eyes. She is absolutely terrible in the show. She only has the job because of the Bush name and this really upsets me. She stutters just like her father did. Extremely awkward in her human interactions. I can no longer watch such a good show because of Jenna.
I just saw the interviews with Clinton and Trump by Savannah and I must say that it was very one sided Savannah did not interrupt Clinton the way she did Trump he did not get a fare interview and the way I saw it, Savannah actually attacked Trump I am not supporting either one of these lunatics but this interview was not a fare one I have watched this show for a very long time and I have always felt that everyone on the show was fare and truthful,until today. Savannah, you were not fare
Tamron is just not a good fit. She needs a show where it's just her reading news with zero human interaction. Tamron is so very pleased with herself that she must make it known to the world how awesome she is even if it means going off topic or rudely interrupting her coworkers. I feel bad for the hard working anchors that are forced to deal with her on a daily basis. I just turn the channel even if it means I'll miss out on Tamon's "celebrity" BFF of the week. Yes Tamron, you are just so cool. Go be a celebrity show host. You know it's what you really want to be anyway.
I LOVE the today show but Tamron is cringe worthy. She talk over everyone, stumbles over her lines, is awkward, and makes it all about her. She's so awkward to watch. If you watch her co-hosts when she speaks.. You can often see them cringe.
So happy Natalie is leaving. She is unprofessional, can't properly read the news and has absolutely no personality. Don't know how she lasted this long. Hopefully self-absorbed Tamron will be the next to go. Also, Jenna Bush Hager, now we know how she got the job. You mean to tell me that there isn't someone else, perhaps with a journalism/communications degree that can't fill in besides Jenna?? She's probably a nice person but honestly, my 6 year old niece has better communication skills. There are people out there who actually NEED a job and who would be much better suited and NOT Brooke Shields!! Really!?
Love Al, Willie, Hoda and KLG (although KLG needs to stop interrupting guests). And, please, less segments and more substance. The segments are always rushed through and sometimes cut off for commercials. I'd rather watch a couple of full in depth segments instead of a bunch that are rushed through.
I am so tired of Tamron Hall's shameless self promotion at the expense of everything she touches on Today. Prince tragically dies and it's all about Tamron. There's a tropical storm taking lives in Texas and Tamron has to explain how it affects her. She gets her hands on a selfie stick out on the plaza and sends the show into disarray as she refuses to stop taking shots of herself. Then, when she has news to report she can't manage to read her lines properly from the monitor.
Why is she even on the show? I refuse to believe that there aren't other young black women in television journalism who are better suited to co-anchor the Today Show and do not have the solipsistic world view that afflicts Ms. Hall. She embodies everything that is wrong with what now passes for news programming. This is what happens when the networks foist talentless "personalities" on the viewing public. Tamron should be shown the door before too many more people tune-out Today.
Like many many others, I've watched the Today Show for years but now find I watch it maybe 10% of the time. GMA is so much better. Get rid of Tamron Hall!!! She doesn't fit with anyone or any of the stories. She wants every show to be about her and total focus on her. With no children, no husband or real family, she has no credibility or anything to contribute when talking. You can tell she irritates the team just sitting there trying to be the center of attention. And Matt Lauer is out of date and needs to be moved to something else. Even the team makes fun of him. Where's the strategy behind the where the Today Show is going because the direction and the core team are out of alignment. Once Natalie leaves, it will be GMA 100% of the time until Today Show management can get it back together again (if ever).
This is the worst show on tv. Their interviews are horrible. Must be told what to and what not to say. Matt and Savannah are horrible. Dump them. Keep Al ,Willie and Dylan. Become a real show. The show trys to keep up with the times(wrong). There's so much wrong with this show it is broken. In plain English (IT SUCkS.
I'm grown tired of Ms. Hall turning every on-air item into a piece about her.
She's one of the best newscasters/talking heads in the biz but during interviews, unlike her co-hosts, she's constantly mugging, talking over others and striving emphatically to draw attention to &herself. Please, make it stop!!
I watched GMA for year's and switched over to The Today show because I like Willy Geist and Al Roker, but that Savannah lady needs to go, or I am switching back to GMA. She comes off as so arrogant, can't stand to watch her! Now I hear Natalie is leaving? She is so sweet, and has a personality, unlike Savannah!
Just joined to say Today Show is getting very difficult to watch. Too much fluff and more a gossip show than relevant information. Don't understand why talent less Jenna Bush is getting more air time. Awful presenter and not humorous as she so desperately wants to be but not a serious speaker at all. Can't stand to watch her or listen to horrible voice. Tamron Hall has awful unappealing laugh and speaks over everyone. Natalie Morales is more serious newscaster but she is now leaving. I will be switching to another station as this show has gotten horrible to watch.
What is going on with this show? Get rid of Matt and Savanna!How about Kit Hoover and Billy do they cater to people like personality free Natalie?They dont listen to people thats why they have so much animosity and problems on that show
