    For years I've watched the Today Show. I don't know why I do it because those cackling hens get on my nerves. They always talk over each other and their guests. Now with Kathie Lee added to it, it's worse! I guess I'm in the market for a replacement.

    What's your favorite morning show?

    No time for a morning show. I wake up, get in the shower, get dressed, and head for the bus.

    I have always watched the Today show except those few times I watched the Early Show to see the Survivor winner get the big check. A friend and colleague stopped watching the Today show not for the national talent, but because the local weatherman on the cut ins was so annoying. He switched over to CNN with Solidad O'Brien and is very pleased.

    I still can't get enough Al Roker and his bad wordplay, and I'm out of the house waaaay before the 10:00 hour so KLG doesn't bother me a bit.

    Morning Joe... nothing else comes close. But I watch a local report to get traffic for my commute. When I get into the car I switch to Washington Journal. I love how CSPAN let's insane callers speak without interupting.

    Does Your Weather Today count as a morning show? Nicole Mitchell was at Sea World playing with Dolphins- and she made me 15min late this morning.

    Malcolm in the middle, Angel or MASH depending on the episodes that are playing on the others.

    CNN News Headlines. Short and sweet. Though I do want to see Robin do some real tragidy live like 9/11. I suspect they would grab an anchor with more gravitas.

    Can someone explain to me the need these shows have to send their weather person on remote and spend more time talking about the location where they are than they talk about the weather? I can't think of anything more mind numbing.

    We have a Season Pass for the first two hours of the Today Show, and I think my wife watches some of it occasionally, but mostly just to see what's going on in the world and the occasional interesting story they highlight. Most days it gets recorded over without being watched at all.

    The one that gets me is when they do stories about rising gas prices.
    Do they report any reasons why? No.
    Do they report any predictions as to future trends? Usually no.

    Do they ask random people at a gas station whether they think prices are high? Yes.

    Not pursuing the "talking to random people at gas stations" tangent, but geez, I can see rising gas prices as I drive into work. Why waste my time with a whole segment on that?

    Favorite morning news used to be a local one(LA) with Lisa Joyner. But she left, so now it's a local one with Jessica Holmes.

    I watch The Daily Show or Conan in the morning before I go to work. Morning "news" shows are too much fluff. If I'm forced to watch something, I prefer CNNHN with Robin Meade...

    I watch the evening news with Brian Williams that I recorded from the previous day. It's news that's twelve hours old, but it's still better than having to deal with Ann Curry.
