Matt Lauer is so rich people cant relate to him anymore. Just like Howard.
you may have hit on a possible reason....people who watch these stupid shows also read gossip columns and watch extra. after awhile hearing about celeb parties in the hamptons and this celeb hanging out with that celeb, the schlub sitting at home begins to resent the smugness emanating from a matt lauer or a katie couric.....and that's a good thing. it becomes a matter of not identifying with the hosts.
