So last week I was actually awake early enough to witness this trainwreck TV live for the first time.

I couldn't believe how awful this show is. There was a segment called "iHoda" where Hoda talked about what was on her iPod, and then shrieked along with some Shania Twain song about not being woman enough to take my man. And the lyrics ran across the bottom of the screen with a little bouncing Hoda head to follow along. I was :scream: and :eek: at the same time.

All these two do is pour booze down their Botoxed faces and shriek/laugh a lot at every opportunity. I couldn't make it through the entire hour I was so horrified. Why, exactly, is this on TV? Do people actually like this sh*t?

I've seen it occasionally. It's ok, though not must-see TV for me. I don't believe I've ever seen the iHoda segment, it does sound kind of dreadful :lol:

Still, I do admit to having a soft spot for Hoda Kotb, as a fellow breast cancer survivor. And I think she is a real trained journalist. Not sure how she ended up doing this gig with Kathie Lee.

Personally, I like Hoda, but can't stand Kathie Lee :lol:
I think some people watch it for Kathie Lee from her past days on with Regis. To me, she seems obnoxious and all too consumed with herself. :blah:
From Boozeday Tuesday to Winesday Wednesday, :nopryde: to Luis Licari "la la la la la la," :scream:
:yikes: I can't stand the show. :MakesMePuke!:

I love when SNL did/do a skit on them. To a T!

I saw this for the first time on TV last week and couldn't believe it actually existed. I absolutely loathe it but now my roommate keeps watching it and I have this weird reaction where I know I don't want to watch it but I can't look away, like a trainwreck. Or America's Next Top Model.

The show can sometimes by mindless, campy fun to watch. Kathy Lee can often be obnoxious though. She has a habit of constantly making these obnoxious facial expressions that she thinks are funny (and for some reason the crew also ... at least we here their *pretend* laughing in the background, LOL), and she actually believes she's a good singer.

Minor point, but I think that's a Loretta Lynn song. Was it this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_wwP8UZR1o)?

Love that video!!!
But I just checked on the Net and the song Hoda shrieked along to was actually "Any Man of Mine" by Ms. Twain. Apologies to the legendary Ms. Lynn for associating her with the drunken harpies....

Plus, I don't think Twain is the person who should be singing about someone "not being woman enough to take her man."

Too soon?

You're all telling me people spend time watching this inanity instead of doing more productive things like watching Deutsche Welle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd6DoBooeLM) programs, CNBC (http://www.hulu.com/watch/103756/cnbc-originals-the-new-age-of-walmart) documentaries, or the BBC World News (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/world_news_america/default.stm); reading or listening to The Economist (http://www.economist.com); working out (http://www.24hourfitness.com/); or posting on FSU (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum)? Horrors! :drama: :scream:

Well, given that the man in question looked like an unmade bed and let his you-know-what do the thinking, Shania's well rid of him. Sounds like he and the "best friend" deserved each other.

Overedge is to Kathie Lee and Hoda as Rex is to Sandra Lee's Semi-homemade! (can you tell I've been helping my middle schooler with story problems? :P)

:shuffle: You might want to stay out of OTBT once Big Brother starts. :saint:

I catch bits and pieces of this show every once in a while and each time I am :confused: that this is related in any way to the Today Show.

I saw a dreadful Kathie Lee/Hoda where Curtis Stone cooked for them and some of their female friends at Hoda's house on the water. Ok, Curtis is a hottie, but they treated him like a piece of meat. They were making slezoid remarks and cabana boy jokes and talking about his butt when he walked away. All I could think is if it were 2 male talk show hosts and Rachael Ray, the guys would have been asked for their resignations the next day. Ever since then, when I come across them, I switch channels ASAP.

I have no idea who or what the **** Hoda is (unless it is a very short, very badly made-up and -dressed transvestite from a galaxy far, far away....).
