While not everyone is a fan of Matt Lauer's -- NBC seems to be. The network just gave the Today cohost Matt Lauer a massive new deal for two more years at $20 million per year. Wow!

A source confirms to Us Weekly that the host has extended his contract, keeping him at the morning show for at least two more years. Lauer joined the Today team back in 1994 as a news anchor. He became coanchor in 1997 and last renewed his contract in 2014.

Multiple sources say the deal was inked months ago. “The new deal will take him well into 2018,” a source told the New York Post.

We're a bit surprised to hear the news because the 58-year-old was heavily criticized for his moderation of the Commander-in-Chief Forum with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in September. Many were outraged that the newsman grilled Clinton about her email scandal but did nothing to fact check Trump on his claims about the Iraq War.

Lauer's reps have not yet commented on the news.
