Matt Lauer: "I Have a Lower Q Rating Than Polio Right Now"
Sometimes the best thing to do after months of bad press is find the humor in your situation. That appears to be what Today’s Matt Lauer is trying to do. According to the New York Post, Lauer joked about his plummeting Q Score and The New York Times scathing coverage, at New York’s Broadcast Cable & Film Division event.
“a bit surprised to be asked to host this dinner. If you’ve been following the papers lately, you know it’s been a bit rough for me. These days, I only get asked to host dinners if polio is busy. Yup, I have a lower Q rating than polio right now.”
“Katie has a way of making headlines. Who can forget when she was co-host of the ‘Today’ show? She got a colonoscopy on TV. Not to be outdone, two weeks ago, I got one in The New York Times.”
