Meredith Vieira's Last Day on 'Today' Show: Sad to See Her Go?

It was Meredith Vieira's last day on the "Today" show this morning and the New York Daily News claims it was all pretty dramatic.

Meredith Vieira's farewell to the "Today" show this morning was understated, in much the same way Kate Middleton's wedding was understated.

The Daily News reported that Vieira's departure took up the bulk of the two-hour program and that the goodbye was drawn out with the over-dramatization of clasping hands, emotional farewells and taped tributes from Jay Leno and Brian Williams.

Do you think Vieira's five-year run on the "Today" show deserved such a drawn-out farewell?

    I was hoping she would leave when she first started on the "Today" show! I never cared for her since she was a co-host on "The View." (Don't get me started on those sickening Liberal bit***s on "The View!") I don't believe that Meredith left "Today" to spend more time with her family. What a crock! She was probably pushed out just like her Lib sister, Katie Couric, was dumped by CBS Evening News! No one EVER LEAVES those kind of coveted jobs willingly. That's the nature of the Beast, television! evening news leaves coveted jobs willingly nature beast television Liberal TV shows

    I've not seen the Today program since the 60's, did I miss something. From the photo above, she sorta looks like she could be John Kerry's ugly sister.

    She's a liberal just like the rest of them. I used to think she was a lady with morals, but then I saw some of her interviews.....
  • GRANDMA Sass 2011/06/09 14:31:06

    I think she called a spade a spade..was not a chicken to voice her opinion..we all have that rite..ya know..ths is AMERICA..how about that FOX NEWS..daaaa..come on one track mind..whose mind is so thick..ya think ths 2 party system is the way of the world..??? ya think its sinking the country ??? YA GOTTA KNOW THERE HASTO BE A BETTER WAY..CAUSE THIS AINT WORKING..I checked my past voting actions...eeeks..the men I voted for..both parties at different times..I thought I did my home work..oh well my voted didnt work out so good..but of course the one who created this HOLY WAR FOR THE PAST TEN YRS.is the WINNER ALLLL THE WAY..ya gotta agree on that..and the man now who is trying to fix the total mess..I never thought he could do it..but sure hoped to God he would..I still feel he is trying..but I think it would take a time period of 20 years to fix it..cause it was so bad..like an impossible situation...God help him..so mr.dum dum..sit back & rethink your blackened mind..Mike

    Is it Mike? Or Grandma? Anyway, you have a good day.
    I'm praying this as far as "O" is concerned:
    Psalm 109:8
    May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.
    BTW, in case you didn't get it by my pink flower, I'm not a MR.

    I never watched the show while she was on. So I can't say that I will miss her. I do think she did an adequate job hosting "Millionaire" though.

    Dear Friends, I don't know people may think about boring ship in her show but I remind smooth seas do not make skilful sailors; for me it is sad when she left as her job is the method & discipline of knowledge are added to talent, the result is altogether outstanding. Thank you all. smooth seas skilful sailors sad method discipline talent result

    I wrongly selected YES. Who cares about Meredith? Her television presence is NOT the event of the century. Could she be anymore boring?

    It's not a news program. I can see how you might be confused but just like Fox...its a program for entertainment only.

    News should not be entertainment. News reporters should report the story, not be the story.
