TODAY Ratings Are Way Up Since Matt Lauer Was Fired
We gettin’ money over here! What it do, pimpin’?!?!
The folks who watch TODAY every morning ain’t losin’ a wink of sleep over Matt Lauer‘s disgraced departure. According to CBSNY, since Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct, the ratings for the morning show are through the roof!
The folks at Nielsen report that TODAY had higher ratings than Good Morning America all 5 weekdays. That’s a first in almost a year. From Tuesday to Wednesday, ratings rose from 4.2 million to 5.7 million respectively.
To think, NBC could have saved themselves a bunch of money, about $25 million per year, had they just fired him a long time ago lol.
Our guess is that people were tuning in to see how awkward things would be with Hoda and Savannah in the wake of the scandal.
