Should Ryan Seacrest Replace Matt Lauer on The Today Show?

According to the Wall Street Journal, NBC executives have approached American Idol host and purveyor of all things Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, about possibly becoming Matt Lauer’s successor at The Today Show.  Talk about a head scratcher.

I grew up watching Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel anchor NBC’s Today. I enjoyed Katie Couric and Matt Lauer’s time together. After Couric left for the CBS Evening News, I welcomed Meredith Vieira’s addition to the morning show. When Vieira decided to leave and Ann Curry took over, the transition was seamless.  I wouldn’t watch Today with Seacrest as a primary host. I’d just spend more time watching Morning Joe or replace Today with Good Morning America.

Well, both are extremely overrated, talentless pieces of shit, so replacing one with the other actually makes sense.

Don't watch it now and sure as hell wouldn't watch if Ryan gets in there.
