Paula Deen's loss is the Today Show's gain.
The NBC morning show beat it's rival Good Morning America in the ratings, although it was only for one day.
Ratings showed "Today" got 168,000 more viewers than "GMA" on Wednesday, when Lauer interviewed Deen about the controversy over her use of the n-word.
This is the first win for Today over GMA since Hurricane Sandy last November.
Again...it was only one day, but for the staff at the Today Show, they'll take any good news at this point.
What did Matt Lauer do after his interview with Deen? He played golf at Manhasset’s Deepdale Golf Club.
