And while I am on the subject...Ann Curry. Ann Curry replaced Meredith Vieira as Matt Lauer's co-host on the Today Show. She was the newsreader and substitute host for years. I like Ann Curry, but she is out of her element. Being both a serious news person and a funny, spontaneous ad libber is not her strength. There is a definite level of discomfort and sometimes phoniness. I don't know what the ratings are for the new CBS Early Show with Charlie Rose and Gayle King, but I would be worried if I were NBC and the Today Show producers. My finger is itching to switch and it may just happen.
Sidebars: Big surprise that Paula Deen has diabetes. Lots of criticism about her holding the news for three years and still making her cheese and bacon burger between krispy kreme doughnuts and the like. I love Paula, but no one could be surprised that if you eat what she makes on any regular basis that your health would suffer. Glee was much better than the Christmas episode. A little bit moving even. Royal Pains begins again tonight, as does American Idol. Enjoy the snow Washington State.
