Katie Couric talk show renewed

No surprise: Katie Couric's daytime talk show has been renewed for a second season. Her daytime show is one of only a few success stories among new entries this season in syndication.

Disney-ABC Domestic Television announced the pickup at a Miami programming convention Wednesday, touting the show as this season's most-watched newcomer, averaging 2.4 million viewers.

"Hosting, producing and launching a show from scratch has been challenging but very rewarding," Couric said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to working with our terrific team to build on the success of our first season, and continuing to share compelling stories, explore important topics, and create entertaining television for our audience."

Couric got a ratings bounce with last week's interview with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o about his phantom girlfriend. Yet freshman Steve Harvey, renewed earlier, ties Couric among the core daytime audience of women ages 18 to 49 for the season to date.

Anderson Cooper is pissed that he didn't go for Regis' job instead of starting his own show.

They have nothing with which they might replace it.

God, her show is terrible - it's frau city.

They are obviously having problems - they are constantly having "staff changes" a la The Rosie Show before that show was cancelled.

Pity she can't find a new husband.

She probably will not get a third season renewal.

Her talk show was not renewed for the 2nd year.

She signed a two year contract. She was guaranteed a second year. They just want to make it sound like she was a success.

It is questionable if she will have a 3rd year. Zucker has gone to CNN, and she has no executive producer right now. Her show is in chaos and ratings are not stellar.

Even though its in New York, they act just as shallow as they do in Hollywood.

When its apparent the ship is going down, all the rats jump ship.

By the way, we all know it is Frau City, that is the only ones who watch her in the first place. But its failing even in Frau Town.

On a related note, "Steve Harvey" has solidified its status as the breakout new syndicated talk show of 2012-13. On the heels of the Endemol USA-produced talker getting an early renewal for next season by stations — including the core NBC Stations group, in January – the show now has been picked up for two additional seasons, through 2016, in more than 65% of the U.S.

“Steve Harvey’s engaging, funny and warm style has been a hit with our audiences,” said Valari Staab, President, NBC Owned TV Stations. “The show has strengthened our daytime lineups and proven to be a strong lead-in to Ellen and, in turn, our local newscasts.”

Steve Harvey got off to a solid start last fall and by the May sweep, it was the #1 new first-run show with women 18-49 and women 25-54 nationally, [italic]topping fellow rookie Katie,[/italic] and was the only new show to build over its lead-in and improve the year-ago time period.

I didn't know this midget balding cunt had a TV show.

R7 is exactly right. And many of the affiliates carrying the show have not been happy with its performance.

I can't sit through even 2 minutes of that Steve Harvey. What the fuck do people see in him.

He's pretty funny on Family Feud, and just nominated for an Emmy for it.
