You're right, she's not the sole reason. The ratings are going down because the show, in general, sucks. Getting rid of one host or another isn't going to fix it either. The people they have anchoring are just a 'small' part of the whole equation. I had heard a senior producer got the axe last week for their Zimmerman fuck up. Sucks to be that person, but I think that might be where NBC needs to do their cleaning. It doesn't matter who you put on the show if the quality of the show's segments continue to be irrelevant, obnoxious, and downright annoying as they continue to be. Example, GMA is catching up because GMA doesn't gush over ridiculously irrelevant stories like the Duggars or some idiot thinking she's the best looking woman on earth and everyone who disagrees is jealous... That kind of crap is why the show is failing, not because of Ann, not because of Matt, but because of what people 'think' America cares about.
