‘Today’ Superfan Linny Boyette Turns up on ‘GMA’

Beyond the ratings, here’s one more indicator of the “Today” show losing out to “Good Morning America.”

Page Six reports, “Today” show superfan Linny Boyette has switched allegiances. With “Today” in London, Boyette has been spotted across town at “GMA.”

“He has been there every morning this week,” one ABC insider told us, adding, “we’ve seen him both on- and off-camera.” Boyette even posed for a pic with Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott, Sam Champion and Amy Robach. Ripples were mostly made on a Facebook fan page devoted to Boyette. But it remains to be seen where he’ll wind up post-Olympics.

In 2010, TodayShow.com produced a story on Linny who takes the subway down from the Bronx every morning to watch the show from the plaza. Al Roker calls him “a good luck charm. When we don’t see him, we feel a little off.”

In the piece, Linny says Ann Curry was his favorite. “Everyone loves her and Meredith is #2,” Linny adds.
