The Today Show Looking More Like Yesterday


Tom Touchet, the chief executive behind the “Today” show, has been fired. The network’s biggest money-maker in a ratings slump and feeling the heat from ABC’s “Good Morning America.” and tensions backstage has made the Today Show rather volatile.

The Drudge Report is also reporting:

NBC ‘TODAY’ SHOW EXEC PRODUCER TOM TOUCHET FIRED….DEVELOPING… Tom’s firing had nothing to do with the ratings or tightening numbers with ABC’s ‘GOOD MORNING AMERICA’, a top source claims… Tom has been making changes to move the show into the future, while Host Katie Couric and NBC President Jeff Zucker are trying to keep it mired in the past. ‘If it was about the ratings, NBC as a network is in 4th place and Jeff Zucker would be gone,’ insider claims. ‘It is common knowledge that even before Host Katie Couric signed her new deal – she had lost interest, she hated waking up early, and has been absolutely miserable’...

Would appear that the perky Katie Couric may not be so perky these days.
