A long time ago in a media world far, far away, Katie Couric was once seen as a competent, likable, down to earth co-host of NBC's "Today Show." She was appealing, smart, and accessible, But success ruined Couric. Over time, she became a Media Diva and a divisive, hysterical left-wing partisan. Whatever your politics, it is impossible to dispute that Couric went Hollywood -- and narcissism is never pretty
In the wake of her chilling metamorphosis, Couric has only met failure. But her latest endeavor, a daytime talk show, is making Couric's time at CBS look like the glory days of a fast-fading career:
While all television is going through a difficult time and programming is having a hard time finding its niche, Katies new talk show does not live up its expectations, a source closely connected to the ABC show told FOX411s column. Whatever constraints Katie experienced anchoring Evening News [it is] certainly taking its toll, and her return to daytime has backfired.
Others in the industry are even less kind. Its an unmitigated disaster, one seasoned studio executive said. One of the biggest failures ever in syndication. Terrible ratings, no growth, shouldnt be on the air. Where did it miss the mark? Lets start with her, she is dreadfully boring. The show offers nothing new to the audience, nothing to say.
When Katie launched in September 2012, and many expected that Couric would fill Oprahs shoes as the ultimate talk show Queen, and although the show is number one in the ranks of first-year talk shows in terms of ratings, it has endured an erratic, overall underperformance. Nielsen Media Research reported that in mid-May Courics show averaged a 1.6 rating/5 share average in households, down 30 percent from the same time period last year.

Kousin Katie needs to retire to spend more time with her money.
Translation - she’s a (rhymes with witch).
Replace her with Sarah Palin.
I love it when I see go by the wayside when changing channels
It’s still is bad to see her for 1 second!
“Over time, she became a Media Diva and a divisive, hysterical left-wing partisan.”
AKA “Olbermann Syndrome”
She’s as popular as Matt Lauer.
She used to be ‘perky’, now she’s just a bitter old bag.
With teeth that look like elephant toenails.
Who gives a rip? Show biz people are nonentities. What have they done worthwhile?
She’s on the same time as “The Five” in our area (DFW).
If you believe in karma bookmark this article.
I have to believe she lost a significant piece of her audience when she sandbagged Palin.
She’s like that “perky” aunt who is discovered to have poisoned a number of people over the years and somehow gotten away with it for a long tim.
LOL. That is hilarious.
How bout we replace ABC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’d rather watch her colonoscopy.
sounds like the perfect replacement for Jay Carney...’cept she’s.....cough cough..............white
