Default Vote Now, Good Morning America, or Today:)

I am watching Good Morning America, which I missed badly,while on the ship last week. Just how much can you take of Cnn international,
anyway. huh?

It sure looks like they redecorated, while I was away. 3 tall hosts stuck behind this tiny table.. One another set, they have books behin the host, 2 are the same, written by Andy Rooney,don't they know he is from a rival network?? Much too busy to have as a backdrop, if all I want to do is read the titles!

So vote now, is your favorite, GMA, or Today, or the also ran Morning show on CBS..

Does Diane or Katie, float your boat? Do you notice Matt's changing hairline, or Charlies snaggletooth? I love both Al Roker,and Spencer Christian, no wait,that was years ago

Coming into our homes for so many years, sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly, which one do YOU turn on in the morning..

GMA all the way!!!!

My favorite on there is Robyn! Ever since she was reading a story once about a celeb wedding, then she got to the part where they revealed were they are honeymooning, and she just stopped the story and said, "I'm not going to read that". " I know you will hear about it, but not from me". It's just not our business!" Way to go Robyn. I've enjoyed her down to earth personality.

Can't stand Katie C. Too fake! Glad they got rid of Brian!

Charlie G: About that tooth! What's up with that? You think he would get it fixed with all his money.

I'm only home one morning a week and if I'm up that early I prefer the Today show. Sure Katie can be a little nauseatingly cute but at least Bryant Gumbel isn't there anymore!

Neither, I watch our local news network.
If any thing is on one of the morining shows, I might watch.
we get the international news from CNN
don't even read a newspaper anymore. to much bad news, especially in the middle east. But, I wont go there with my opinion

Judy guess that means you have been watching steadily for the past few months.

I never see the morning shows. But on the rare occasion that I am home, I tune into the Today Show.

NPR's Morning Edition and the paper. Occasionally CNN's American Morning if there's a story that they're riding that's really news (like this morning, when they had very good hurricane coverage).

All three of the network morning grinfests are beyond my ability to bear, even though two of my old friends still show up on the Today show occasionally. Willie Scott is an old Washington boy, and we used to get into a lot of trouble together in the area's recording studios back in the 60's and 70's, but I gather he's only on once in a great while now, and then just for a couple minutes. He's a dear person, and always has been. One of the true "what you see is what you get" guys, on and off camera. And one of NBC's really fine journalists, Bob Dotson, still does feature stories on Today, and when he alerts me that one will be running that he's especially proud of, I either tune in to watch them or punch them up online. Bob's a friend, and I'm prejudiced, but I think he does human interest features better than anyone on TV today. It's just a shame that they're mired in the muck of the Today show.

Sorry if I'm offending any Today or GMA fans, but my vote is "none of the above."

I'm a GMA fan, have been for ages! I really like Charlie Gibson and actually Diane and Robyn, too!

Seeing as they come on at 7:00 here and I don't go into work until 8 or so I'm able to watch while I have my coffee and cereal!

Today show, but for entertainment, not really for news. I might turn to CNN for news, but I'm with AR - newspaper and NPR for news.

If GMA or Today show starts - I'm late for work So I don't really watch either. When I'm getting ready for work I still continue to flip through the stations from local, Headline News & TWC. But Al Roker since he got his gastric bypass - grates me the wrong way especially how he went on & on about it for months afterwards - real turn off.

You guys have time to watch TV in the morning?
I don't even put on the radio any more, I have to preserve my sanity with silence, because after I get to work, there's no more of it for the rest of the day!

I am only allowed to watch Fox....our nephew works for them in NYC. He does some directing & also travels around doing interest stories. He especially loves doing interviews with some of the music greats. He was in Nashville, a few month ago, & came back with some un-believable stories. Some he could write about & some could not be put on the air! In general, he found the country stars to be very warm & kind people who work hard & like to party hardy....work for me.
