George Parker bumped from ‘Today’

Georgeparker_1We just scrolled through all three DVR-ed hours of this morning’s Today show and didn’t see George Parker anywhere. The curmudgeonly author of the AdScam and AdHurl blogs was due for an appearance to talk about advertising, but George reports that he was bumped. He evidently had to make way for more serious news, such as the death of Coretta Scott King, the Oscar nominations and not one but two segments with Al Roker cooking food. He has been rescheduled for tomorrow, apparently at 7:15 a.m. George explains on AdScam: “Apparently Katie wants to spend more time with me on Wednesday and Al Roker wants me to do the weather. So, Matt is pissed. But what can I say?”
