The Today show is currently struggling for ratings, and host Matt Lauer has finally adressed the controversial exit of co-anchor Ann Curry last year.

"I don't think the show and the network handled the transition well. You don't have to be Einstein to know that," Lauer told The Daily Beast. "We were seen as a family, and we didn't handle a family matter well." 

Despite speculation that it was Lauer himself who advocated Curry's departure from Today, Lauer claims he reportedly threatened to resign if the show's executives thought it would be best.
