Those victimized by the IRS might read this & think,

They might be on to something here. Today show “faces” have been committing suicide with their careers there for decades, Pauly, Gumbell who?

People could go there and commit suicide on live TV for 3 hours. This could be HUGE! The new format could bring back the Today Show from the brink. It would open up a perverse generation of new sponsors to the show.

Funny but every time I surf tv and inadvertently stop on “Today” I also want to slit my wrists.

Well, at least he wasn’t holding a gun to his head and holding a sign that read, “You’re Next Lauer.”
