Katie Couric crushes rivals
Katie Couric won the battle of the new daytime TV talk shows, scoring the highest ratings for any such debut in 10 years.
"Katie," the nationally syndicated lifestyle venture from the former CBS news anchor and "Today" show host, crushed the premieres on Monday of Ricki Lake and "Survivor" host Jeff Probst, as well as the one by comedian Steve Harvey last week, according to early Nielsen ratings.
Featuring interviews with singer Sheryl Crow and Jessica Simpson, "Katie" was first in its time period in the top TV markets of New York and Los Angeles, and first or second in the 13 other biggest U.S. cities.

Couric's 2.8 household rating was 250 percent higher than that of Lake, and 150 percent higher than Probst's. A single ratings point represents 1 percent of the estimated 115.9 million television households in the United States.

I give her a lifetime pass for embarrasing that creature from Alaska.

Barbra Streisand is going to be a guest on Katie's show next week.

Yawn. Who cares?
Her audience is unemployed people or old, retired people. Be still my undesireable demographic heart.

R3, I do give her lots of credit for that, but I just can't watch her show.

I agree. After that interview, the entire planet knew Palin was an idiot.

You mean she did not flash her colon on her first show?

Steve Harvey was hilarious today. He had a gay decorator on and had the gay panic act down pat.

Why no love for Wendy Williams? She had Scissor Sisters on her first show this season

Wow! You really hit on something here. No doubt, everyone at DL hates her. So glad you brought that to everyone's attention.

Her ratings have tanked since her debut. The show is such a low-rent copy of Oprah...

Are the production values low rent, too?

I'm watching the Barbra Streisand show right now. Barbra needs a stylist - STAT! She looks like an idiot in a shirt and tie with a long skirt and boots. Oy.

What's wrong with DL these days?! Barbra Fuckin Streisand was on Katie today and there's not a thread of its own about this?! Or the very least 100 posts here about how she was dressed, how her face looked, her attitude or, most important, the fact that she will be singing live with her son, Jason, in concert next month?! Puzzling and disheartening.

r22, we are tired of both Barbra Fuckin Streisand and Katie Fuckin Couric being foisted upon us.
