Although several people can live with the fact that Ann Curry left the 'Today' show, many were quite dissatisfied with the way the NBC show handled her last day on set.
Many more viewers were met with bizarre feelings the next day when they not only saw Savannah Guthrie sitting on Curry's former seat but realized that both Guthrie and Lauer were making no mention or recognition of Curry's absence (indifference?). The co-anchors continued their talk on topics ranging from the Colorado wildfires to the Obama care ruling.

The oust prompted the Latinos Post to launch and online poll and capture to the best of its ability a general opinion of what viewers thought on the new co-anchor Savannah Guthrie.
It could be said that the poll found people were generally dissatisfied with NBC's decision.
