I guess Hoda is here to stay on the 4th hour.  Since Jenna Bush wasn't added to the new 3rd hour, I guess she will now replace Kathie Lee.

Will there be no end to Hoda's baby stories?

Baby stories will end.....  then it will be Toddler Tales !

I'm saying this as an Eagles fan, so I may be a little biased, but I thought Hoda was extremely obnoxious when Savannah was paying off their bet in the subway.  I doubt Hoda would have been as gracious if the tables were turned. 

#FlyEaglesFly   

Agreed. She behaved like an 8 year old. I find her over the top antics and freakish smiling annoying.

I am loving the "new" hour three.  No more Megyn Kelly (thank you, baby Jesus).  Just a small collection of experienced television professionals who seem to truly enjoy each others' company, and have mostly interesting things to say.  Loved Craig Melvin's segment this morning on the wall, um, gardens?  (Can't remember the proper name.)  I'm a sucker for any kind of gardening.  What a great idea for adding some natural beauty to the interior, when most of us are frozen out of our balcony and backyard gardens.

I thought Jenna would be immature and annoying , but Hoda does act like a middle school girl ! She is so goofy and immature .

Her smile is freaky and overdone .  It’s hard to hate Hoda because she seems like a genuinely nice person , but she is annoying .

And it looks Kathie Lee is really full forces into trying to be a senior citizen teenager !  There is no reason for her to sit around and not have a life , or dress like an old fart . But, the overdone Botox and surgery,  anorexic body, and her wardrobe  looks silly and sad on her and makes her look even older .

The video is her singing with that country singer yesttqas cringeworthy . Her outfit looked like something a 15 year old would wear !

I wonder when she’ll be pawing at Craig Ferguson for one is the multiple movies she made so she could live out her fantasies of doing him!  It’s actu good that she’s leaving. She is just pathetic lately .

Well, I guess she can't do too much about the overdone plastic surgery at this point. She could certainly eat, get rid of some hair extensions and wear some long sleeves.

Of course she is going to age but she looked amazing when the she first started on the show.

Oh No! What will Hoda do? The Saints lost, but there was a controversial call when everyone seems to think caused the Rams to go to the SuperBowl!

Yesterday she posted s pregame picture of herself with her signature, overdone, annoying big mouth smile before the game .

Since she acted like an overgrown middle schooler when they won, I can’t imagine her reaction now !

It’s too bad if the team was treated unfairly, but at least we don’t have to see weeks of annoying Hoda with her annoying growing going crazy . Although I am sure we’ll have endless “deep” thoughts from Haley Joy and about Haley Joy, since Hoda seems to think she’s some philosopher , or as if her daughter is so out of the ordinary! Kind of like KL and her endless Cody stories !

I used to like Hoda, but now she just drives me crazy.  First of all, Haley Joy tries to escape from her crib every few months and Hoda talks about it like it's the first time.  Second, Savannah first told Hoda that if the Eagles won, she would have to wear the jersey at some point.  Hoda then tells Savannah - you'll have to do this, you'll have to do that and then you will have to blah blah blah.  Turned it into a bigger deal.  To me, it seemed as though Savannah was surprised that Hoda made the bet bigger.

Jenna - used to like her.  I realize that she hasn't had as many life experiences as Kathie Lee, but it's kids, grandparents, kids, grandparents, etc.   I think she is trying too hard.  She interrupts the guests, asks too many questions during cooking segments or "how to" segments when the guest is already explaining.  She talks over her co-workers, won't let them start their stories, etc.  I enjoyed it when Natalie Morales was co-hosting the 3rd hour last month.  Every time Jenna tried to talk over her, Natalie just kept on going.

The network had probably sold tickets to/for a live audience for several weeks in advance.  I suspect they were just letting the clock run out on that.

I don’t watch the 3rd hour, I really don’t care about their opinions on things. Tamron Hall has moved on to ABC in what sounds like an interesting show. The Today show really messed up burning bridges with her, she could have put that show in the 3rd hour.

ugh with all the celebrity kissing up now that it is “awards season”!!

Oh, & I generally like Jenna, but her voice is so shaky all of the time. It sounds like she’s going to start crying.

Do you ever watch CBS Sunday morning? There is a coorespondent (I think Rita braver) who is decades older than jenna but has the exact same raspy voice! In fact I thought it was Jenna before I saw it wasn’t.  For some reason I’m ok with Jenna and the raspiness but find Rita’s very irritating.

I'm in the opposing corner. Love Rita Braver and have no problem with her voice. She does a great job on that show. OTOH, I loathe Jenna and think she's a full-blown idiot.

Yes.  I have a LOT of concerns with a CELEBRITY giving health and nutritional advice.  She will have a lot more credibility when she can show me her degree in nutrition.

The only reason they gave it all that time was because it was Jlo, who they worship on that show. Not the mention jlo called hoda out by name so they must’ve been beyond chuffed! I agree the challenge is stupid.  It’s like a test to see if jlo can start a trend and see how far it will actually go. If it was a Minor celeb I doubt they would have even mentioned it.

Very true ! They idolization of JLo  and Beyoncé, among others is nauseating!

It’s hilarious how they get so amazed that a celebrity “looks younger “ than they did five years ago! Gee , it can’t be Botox and other plastic surgery!

And I’ve seen pics of Beyoncé without makeup, she looks like a normal person , nothing special . 

JLo in the other hand did some video lip syncing or something like that with her gross old boyfriend , Casper. She had no makeup on.

Sorry, she looks awfull! Beyond being very unattractive, she didn’t look healthy . I wouldn’t take nutritional advice from her ! She is all makeup and whatever is done to her ! And I’m sure she’s had major work to keep her abs looking good !

Hoda is just immature, and not bright! It’s fine for the third hour on some fluff show , but when she brings this to the news, it’s embarrasing!  Savannah is not my favorite, but after Hoda’s immature behavior with the football game , and now the JLo nonsense. I wonder if she wishes someone else was chosen to do the news with her.

Even Jenna comes across less stupid and silly than Hoda at times !

I thought Savannah was on Keto?  Either way, Hoda needs to tone it down.  She was so annoying this morning with her manic energy.  I'm waiting to see if/when she gets the headaches most people get at first when they give up sugar.  And I love Carson's "what if I just don't want to do it" honesty.  This was something that should have been discussed off screen as to who wanted to do the challenge, not "you're all my friends, so I think you'll do it" kind of attack.

Ewww! They both high!  She could play the witch of the west in the wizard of Oz without needing any make up to do so !

Besides the fact they are “dubsmashing” a song called “white girls anthem” , which mocks white women  for going to Starbucks and wearing yoga pants , which is offensive IMo, she is wearing fur which turns me off right away , but that is just me.

And Jlo without make up is not at all healthy looking , so why take diet advice from here ?  Her  body is most likely as fake as her face is that she paints on!

Carson Daly must have a lot of pull at NBC.  He already has his wife on with her cooking, and today his sister was on making chicken soup or something.  The way she kept saying "chickiiiiiinnnnn" got on my nerves.  I hope this was just a one time appearance, but if she does return, I hope she doesn't make anything with chickiiiiinnnnnn.

I loved the segment with Carson & his sister, at the end I was teary-eyed when he told how his sister moved her family from LA to NYC to live down the street from her brother since they had lost their parents recently & they had only each other.  And Carson makes me laugh with his whole "I am NOT taking part in JLo's challenge"! And was eating donuts in front of Hoda on the 4th hour...I have to admit Carson makes me chuckle.

He quit the 10 day challenge cause of his sister's pot pie, and viewers were asking for the recipe.  And if his wife weren't a good cook, she wouldn't be on the show.

I'm sure there are a lot of good cooks who would love to be on the show, besides his wife and sister.  And I'm also sure that there are plenty of cooks out there who have chickiiiinnnn pot pie recipes.

Can you imagine if all of them were on the challenge - who would eat the food the guests cooked?  Even Al takes a bite or two to give an opinion.  Hoda has her bowl of steamed broccoli to keep her going:/  TBH, I would have attacked that mountain of pastries:)

Jenna needs to learn not to pronounce the letter “t”!  She pronounces worse like “important “ as  “impordand”. , which is annoying !  If your going to work in broadcasting, learn to actually pronounce words correctly! That along with her raspy voice that sounds like she’s about to cry at everything  is hard to take on a daily basis !

I think Hoda  and Jenna  are both nice,  but together on a daily basis they would be awful. 

The sad part is, Hoda is in her 50’s , and she should be able to work with a younger , less mature cohost . But, she’s not smart, and she’s so immature herself , it’s awful when she has a young cohost like Jenna every day.

i think Carson would actually make a good cohost for Hoda

The impordant thing is Southern, so I’m not surprised that Jenna speaks that way.  But what is really bothering me is the Millennials who can’t say the letter L or the letter T if it’s in the middle of a word.  They say code for cold, they say mouain for mountain buin for button and on and on.  Do these young women need speech therapy or are they just lazy in talking.  Is it a result of verbalizing only on social media rather than actually talking?  We have a young reporter here who couldn’t find the letter L with both hands.  For her it’s tunno instead of tunnel.  Professiono instead of professional, vehico instead of vehicle.  And I don’t get why these deficiencies aren’t corrected in journalism school.

Why did Kathy Lee push her leaving to April when she’s never on in the first place?   If she wanted to start her new career now, which I can’t see being a success, why didn’t she say goodby before Christmas?

Funny how it was so important for Craig Melvin to put up a picture of his WIFE's cheese tray totally taking the time away from the poor woman who was there to actually SHOW how to make hers, which have garnered much social media interest, so much that time ran out and we were left with only a salami river.....

That was his gift to the poor wife as he leaves her and the kids for Super Bowl week-end.....

Probably because Kathie Lee has been around long enough to know to honor her contract and commitments.  Being gone for most of January has been a thing for most of her time on the show.  She negotiated her deal and NBC agreed to it, extended vacations and all.  Besides, leaving during the hubbub of the holiday season would create less *publicity* than leaving in the beginning of April.

Success is defined so oddly these days.  Entertainment is so fractured and niche-y.  There is a market for the shtick that KLG has.  It won't win awards or have mass appeal, but if it's done well, she won't go broke anytime soon.

Yes , she finally didn’t look like a 60’year old trying to be 18!

I like Jenna as a substitute in small doses , but after a steady diet is her and Hoda , I appreciate KLG’s experience and her ability to host . 

Jenna and Hoda . may be nice people , but they are one note and afternoon  not very interesting.  Both are constantly trying to be deep about their babies and toddlers .  And Jenna sounds like she’s ready to cry every other minute with her raspy voice .

 Jenna has no skills for interviewing . She constantly interrupts guests and can’t pronounce simple words ! It’s a good thing daddy was President our she’d never have that job . 

i never realized how much KLG carries the show until she was gone and annoying Hoda had to take the lead . 

They need someone male or female who’s experienced and doesn’t spend the time talking about babies and sappy quotes for an hour !

I agree that Kathie Lee is skilled at being a talk show host . I just can’t stand the Christian preaching .   

I had to laugh when she basically said she loved Nashville because  no one even talked about the election in November when she was there !  

I do get that sometimes the constant  need to talk politics is too much, and I have to turn it off. But rich , white people basically being stressed because people are resisting racist politicians now is a bit annoying . I’m sorry if Kathie Lee and others who don’t experience the hate and the result of racist policies are uncomfortable when people talk about it  , but people will speak up and talk about what is important to them .  

It’s always interesting how some like Kathie Lee do great charity work , but don’t want to think about the  children and families being hurt that some feel are not entitled to humane treatment , because they’ve been demonized. It’s great  to take trips to the holy land, but sometimes you have to do more than go to charity balls and wear a gown, or throw money at a problem, and actually be uncomfortable and speak out about injustice.  For someone who is posting bible verses everyday and also talks about her faith non stop to not speak out about  treatment of kids who some literally say they don’t care about , is interesting .
