TODAY's Ratings, A 13-Year Low

(From The New York Post -- By Richard Johnson)

The view isn't rosy for MEREDITH VIERIA.

Since she left ABC's THE VIEW to join MATT LAUER at NBC's TODAY, the ratings at top dog TODAY have slid to a 13-year low.

ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA has cut the TODAY lead in half and now trails by just 310,000 viewers.

THE CBS EARLY SHOW has made an even a bigger jump percentagewise, although it's still a distant third.

With KATIE COURIC faring badly at THE CBS EVENING NEWS, and ROSIE O'DONNELL who replaced Vieira, already gone at THE VIEW it looks like everybody should have stayed where they were.

We hear the front-runner to replace O'Donnell is comic KATHY GRIFFIN.

And if Vieira stumbles further, look for AMY ROBACH to take her place.

We'd be surprised if CBS boss LES MOONVES wasn't already looking for a loophole in Couric's contract so he could move her to THE CBS EARLY SHOW.
