NBC is claiming that all the "David Gregory will be dropped from Meet the Press" rumors are completely false.
Of course, NBC does not have a good track record for denying rumors that turn out to be true.
Yesterday, the ratings for last Sunday's shows came out and that fired up the rumor mill even more.
In a week of big news, Meet the Press got its ass handed to them by both ABC and CBS.
HuffPo says that ABC's "This Week" and CBS's "Face the Nation" battled it out for first place in the total viewer category, with ABC pulling well ahead of CBS in the coveted A25-54 demo. "MTP," meanwhile, was stuck in third — not even part of the conversation.
NBC can deny it all they want, but David Gregory is on some very thin ice and the temps are going up.
