Country Star John Rich Steals From the Kinks and Sings Tribute to Hoda Kotb (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Aug 25th 2010 12:30PM
What did Hoda Kotb do to deserve all this attention from country music stars? First, Blake Shelton serenaded Kotb with a love song earlier in the week, and now, John Rich delivers a tribute song written specifically for Kotb on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC).

"I thought, you know, somebody has got to write a song about you and make something happen with Hoda," Rich said, who was sitting in for Kathie Lee Gifford. Then, he launches into a song about Kotb sung to the tune of 'Lola' by The Kinks. Sure, Rich may borrowed liberally from another artist, but, like he points out, it's tough to find things that rhyme with "Hoda."

Kathy Lee is really irritating. I always welcome a new cohost. Hoda Kotb is just fine. Her voice doesn't make my ears bleed like K.Lee and she usually lets the guest speak without a bunch of inane interruptions.

That's right. Worst thing on in the morning!!
Such a relief that Kathy Lee is home fixing Frank his breakfast of milktoast and tea. Poor old feller. He thinks she stays with him for his looks. Remember when she caught him with a girlfriend? Then she finally leaves Regis but NBC is dumb enough to hire her back with poor Hoda Door. Will it ever end?

I bet Hoda is enjoying have some space from Kathie Lee. K.L. is so overbearing and nauseating. How did she ever get that job or any other job? I will not watch it when she is on. I happened to switch to it when this country singer was on.

It is a great show when air head kathy is out of the picture. The guest can actually finish a sentence without Kathy the buttinskie. I only watch the show when Kathy is gone on vacation, she needs to go on a permanent vacation.

The Today Show must be a favorite of TV Squad, since you see more Today Show postings here. The Today Show without a doubt is the worst morning show on TV.

They should win the worst TV show award. What a blow to the Today Show air staff's massive egos.

I can't stand Hoda and Kathie Lee. They are such a waste of good airtime. I keep the Today Show on till them two appear then it's time for Martha.
