Hoda Kotb

Who is Daytime's Most Liked Morning Show Host? (POLL)

Good Morning America's Robin Roberts is the most liked morning show host with a positive Q Score of 29, according to The Wrap. Former GMA weatherman Sam Champion earned a 25 for the No 2. ranking.

GMA's Josh Elliot pulled a positive Q Score of 20 for No. 3. CBS This Morning's Norah O'Donnell was the Tiffany network's most liked host, with a 19 positive Q Score and ranked No. 4. Today's Al Roker rounded out the Top 5 positivity scores with a 14.

In the continued aftermath of the Ann Curry debacle, Matt Lauer's positive Q Score is in the single digits at 7. The good news for Lauer is he doesn't have the lowest positive score on the list, or even his show. Carson Daly had the second lowest score with a 6. Meanwhile, Kathie Lee Gifford wears the crown of least liked morning show hosts with a positive score of 5.

Elaine Stritch Stuns Kathie Lee With The F-Bomb on Today (VIDEO)

Show business legend Elaine Stritch recently stopped by NBC’s The Today Show to promote her new documentary.  However, she drew headlines for a whole other reason when she dropped an “F-bomb” that failed to get bleeped. 
The veteran comedienne used the term to answer a question co-host Kathie Lee asked about Stritch being known for her “big mouth.”  Having been aware of said mouth, the flabbergasted host maybe should have rethought her line of questioning!
Watch the clip below to see Kathie Lee and Hoda look ridiculously uncomfortable.  READ MORE

Babs Denies She and Bill Geddie Were Courting Today's Hoda Kotb For The View

The Today Show may still be feeling Hoda Kotb, but The View’s Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie aren't checking for her! On Wednesday's episode of The View, Walters denied rumors the ABC chatfest was trying to snag Kotb away from NBC’s morning show.

Walters told co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and guest host Scandal's Bellamy Young,

Bill and I have never called her. We have never met her. We have never offered her a compelling deal.  I like her a lot.

Did Hoda Turn Down The View to Stick it Out on Today's Fourth Hour?

Don't expect Hoda Kotb to abandon Kathie Lee Gifford during the fourth hour of Today.  According to Capital New York, Kotb has signed a new contract with NBC that will keep her on Today and allow her to contribute to other NBC news programming.

Kotb was hotly pursued by ABC earlier this year, with the network promising her a high-profile gig on daytime talk stalwart “The View,” as well as a role with ABC News. While we hear the ABC offer was “compelling,” Kotb’s current home apparently offered the better deal.

Matt Lauer is Baywatch's Pamela Anderson For Halloween (PHOTOS)

The hosts of the Today Show dressed up as classic TV characters for Halloween. Al Roker pitied viewers by dressing up as Mr. T.

Everyone's favorite morning lushes, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb dressed up as The Flinstone's Wilma and Betty. Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales rolled around the set as Laverne and Shirley; while Carson Daly had a bit of help from Erik Estrada for his CHiPs costume.

However, it was Matt Lauer's choice of Pamela Anderson circa Baywatch that may have been the most surprising to viewers. He wasn't the only fan of Baywatch. Willie Geist dressed up as David Hasselhoff's character. See more photos and a video from Today's Halloween show after the jump!
