Apart from today marking the Nine’s broadcasting debut of the 2019 Australian Open, it was also the first episode of the new-look Today show.

In a desperate bid to rein in rival Seven’s Sunrise in the TV ratings, Nine announced a swathe of changes to Nine’s breakfast program announced over summer.

First to go was Today executive producer Mark Calvert in December, who has since joined Sky News.

Then it was time for Karl Stefanovic to part ways with Today after 14 years, and an announcement by Nine in the new year cleared up who exactly would be staying, and who was going.

However, it appears the gamble of Georgie Gardner and Deborah Knight leading the show alongside Tom Steinfort as newsreader isn’t exactly getting viewers keen to continue tuning in.

In fact, it appears the new line-up has had the opposite effect, if the swathe of social media criticism from the first episode is anything to go by…

Nine declined to comment when contacted by B&T.
