Hes gone from hero to zero.
In less than a year, Today show host Matt Lauers likability has plummeted 25%, according to the Q Scores, an influential survey used by companies and advertisers to help make major decisions.
"Is it only 25 percent? Because it actually feels much worse," Lauer told the News.
The shocking Q Score comes on the heels of internal research conducted by NBC brass that had the same findings, The News has learned.
It raises a flag, said Henry Schafer, executive vice president of Q Scores.
If youre [the Today show] you have to figure out what corrective actions you can take to curtail this kind of warning signal.
These morning shows are driven by personalities so theres a real challenge out there for NBC News, he said.

Legend in his own mind.
He’s a big lib as well as a cheap shot artist.
Legend in his own mind.
To me he’s a wussified semblance of a man.
see how lib he stays when bozo takes all his money for redistribution.
Hmmm ..... Matt Liar going to get the Ann Curry treatment?
AL ROKER DISSES MATT LAUER FOR ANN CURRY ON TODAY SHOW http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcD0leBWe1M
People remember how he treated Sarah.
IMHO, once is became obvious that NBC was all-in for Obama this election cycle, it dragged his and everybody at NBC News down. I bet Brian Williams Q rating is in the toilet as well. Lester Holt too. That entire organization is a bunch of Obama news-pimps. Can you imagine what Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews register? Is there such a thing as a negative Q rating?
We conservatives must find a way to economically defeat these smarmy, arrogant biased liberals. They are not very pretty when exposed.
There is ZERO reason to watch the today show to begin with, and yet, Matt Lauer lowers that number somehow.
They obviously don't pay him enough for doing the impossible.
Thanks drewh. “Morning” Joe Scarborough about to move to the big time?
You mean, other than the fact that he’s a dweebish butt-boy for the Obama Regime and the DemRats, is totally obnoxious, and always looks like he was on a week-long bender?
Matt Wower, as Tom Brokaw would say...
Willard Scott used to play Bozo the Clown
His replacement Al Roker IS Bozo the Clown.
What’s shocking is that that no-talent jerk is still on the air.
Lauer and his cronies have made themselves irrelevant. They have alienated more than half the American population with their strong leftist agenda.
Advertisers would be wise to note the disengagement of such a large viewing audience and figure a way (local newspapers one suggestion) to reach the millions who have tuned out socialist media (most for at least the past four (4) years). No one I know watches network TV news. However, many do watch local news and weather. There is a reason Rush Limbaugh has such a high number of listeners each day; people are hungry for the REAL news (that is free of leftist slant).
It should be renamed the “yesterday” show.
We have about 30 family members that hang out here at various times and if some young wife or husband of my kids puts on any liberal SH!T the whole room gets a lecture.
That includes cartoons for my grand kids. Go outside and play. TV is not a babysitter, it is absolute poison.
Metrosexual commie-pinko ... A sorry excuse of a man.
Other than that, I've never had any use for Lauer, or the show he's on.
Can't blame him for NBC's horrible Olympic coverage. It was bad before Lauer, and it will be bad long after Lauer.
He did chase me away from "Royal Pains". Not that it wasn't becoming unwatchable before he guested, but I had no use for it after it was announced that he was going to be on it.
He has the touch.
#13, great job, but where is the honorary member perky Katie?
Didn’t he blow off the moment of silence to honor the 9/11 victims last week, in favor of some dopey set of celeb babes?
I don’t get how anyone can get away with THAT, certainly not in New York, from where they broadcast.
Translation: Matt, you are not pimping the Food Stamp President adequately. We have received calls from Jay Carney, who is not really the sharpest knife in the drawer, and he is complaining. Remember what happened to Ann? I know she tried to be a little more vicious, including letting the spittle fly in a couple of interviews, but that wasn’t good enough. Look Matt, we really like you, but you’re really going to have to step it up. Let’s see some name calling, cutting the interviewee off, making obscene gestures when disagreeing, fake spitting on the floor periodically during the interview, insulting their spouses and children, etc. What we’re looking for is more of a combination of temperament of Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, and Dave Letterman. We know you can do it ... you’re on NBC and you can go any lower, well maybe CNN, but they are overloaded with crap heads already.
Bring back J. Fred Muggs!

Whats that line from Stalag 17...?
"Funny, ain't it? In your own FatherIand, by your own Soldaten"
...couldn't happen to a nicer POS, if he gets canned.
Democrat journ-O-lists don't get any slimier than Lauer:
You think Lauer’s Q rating is bad, just check his network.
Let me put that more succinctly: He’s a dick.
I call him the “human rat.” Can’t stand the guy. He makes me physically ill to even look at.
