The Resume

Why Today might be annoying:

    It brought us Bryant Gumbel.
    It used a chimpanzee named J. Fred Muggs to promote its early shows.
    The people on the show like to rub their personal choices onto the audience (Couric's colonoscopy, Roker's weight loss, Lauer's haircut, etc).
    Its 'Where in the World is Matt Lauer' segments are a rip-off of the Carmen Sandiego game.
    Its spin-off, 'Later Today,' flopped.

Why Today might not be annoying:

    It was the first morning news show and inspired clones such as ABC's 'Good Morning America' and CBS's 'The Early Show.'
    Except for expanding from two hours to three (2000), it never changed its format.
    Several of its correspondents and hosts have gone on to greater successes after 'Today.'
    It is broadcasted from a glass-enclosed studio next to the street, and it occasionally does weather and news reports from outside next to a crowd.
    Through the glass window, one woman flashed her breasts on live TV when a 'Today' camera was panning the crowd (2000).
    Willard Scott did 100th birthday announcements on the broadcast.
    It was ranked #17 in TV Guide's '50 Best Shows of All Time' list (2002).
