'Today Show' Co-Host Seat Big Headache for Savannah Guthrie

So let the games begin.  And we’re not talking about the Olympics on NBC which is really what that network would like viewers to focus on as the London games get underway.


It’s the continuing decline of the network’s staple, foundational morning show called Today.  Well today the ABC competitive program Good Morning America has found its way to upend NBC’s Today Show as the leader in morning news and entertainment programming.


Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on NBC's 'Today Show'

And that race seems to have take it’s toll on new host Savannah Guthrie already according to the New York Post.  “Migraine Misery on ‘Today'” screams the headline in last Friday’s version of the story in that newspaper.  Seems the new co-host is having some significant medical issues in the form of migraine headaches which is apparently nothing new for Savannah Guthrie.  But with her new duties as the third co-host with Matt Lauer after Katie Couric’s CBS Evening News debacle, the migraines just keep on coming.

An unidentified source told the New York Post “She goes to a doctor two days a week for treatment of the migraines,” this person said in an effort to stab Savannah in the back.  “The pressure of taking over after Ann’s execution is taking its toll,” continued the source.

Well there the story continues.  Ann Curry was tossed from the co-host chair after the ratings for Today kept dropping and dropping like Mitt Romney’s chances of becoming President.  So after she go booted replacing Meredith Vieira Ms. Guthrie was cast the role which is nothing more than putting her tail in the hottest seat on morning television.

Maybe not a good career or health move.
