I think Rush said 18-20 minutes into the show. I'm waiting as long as I can before switching from Brit (while listening to Mark Levin)...

Just watching some of it now.
The ANTI-Bush bashing is simply amazing.
They find ONE Marine who's 'disappointed' in the President and will vote Demonrat now.

Showing the Armitage interview, 'he feels bad'...

Couric Colon!

What is WRONG with that woman's MOUTH?
Her lips don't meet up properly, she's got some "Greta" lips askew and it's really distracting.

She's also wearing a white blouse...really irritating for her coloring in my humble male opinion...

Sorry, I can't afford the psycho-tropic medicines that would be required after watching the 'perky' one.

18-20 minutes into the show? I guess that is not with commercials...if he's got the last 90sec.

Don't want to watch more than I have too.

My wife is laughing at Couric's outfit, and insists she has had plastic surgery during her leave.

I could not tell, I have not seen her on TV for a while.

You and me both. CBS news used to be a totally biased liberal propaganda vehicle. This version is literally unwatchable.

A rehash of lots of stuff I've heard on his radio show. But, a good rehash on video and delivered to a lot of people who haven't heard it.

Thank G*d, I can turn back to Fox now. I hate to say this, but even Rush can't save this turkey.

Whew! That's for sure. Rush was fine..nothing new but probably news to the normal CBS viewer..

The instant he was through- I switched back to the sanity of Brit!

Someone help me out. I'm in Baltimore and don't see this airing for an another half an hour. How did everyone already see it?

I will say she made an idiotic opening statement saying Al Qaeda had hurt Bush's speech.

All terror, all the time.

I think I'm about to throw up.

Rush done good!

He packed a lot into his 90 seconds. Talked about telephone intercepts, undermining troops is not patriotism, people who are more upset about Abu Grabe than those trying to kill us, we must be united in this war, etc.

He looked good, too. Tanned, open white shirt, dark sport coat, earnest and confident presentation.

Every sentence was an encapsulation of what we say here on FR regarding the WOT. I'm elated many uninformed folks in the rest of the country heard this.

I'm reminded of how many of us heard Rush for the first time years ago. Remember how we said to ourselves...."My God, there's someone on radio that actually thinks like we do"?

Maybe there were some out in TV land who are saying the same thing after hearing Rush's great homily tonight.

This show should be renamed "The Today Show Light". I held my nose and tuned in to see Rush; as expected he was spot-on. The rest (leading up to Rush; I turned it off after him) awful.

I think with all the hoopla and the money they are paying her somebody forgot to put a show together. I've only watched snippets (all I can stand) in the last three days and this show is absolutely TERRIBLE. It's not a news show, it's not an interview show, it's not an entertainment show, it's a poorly thought out mishmash of unrelated junk. If this is the best they have to offer, look out below because the ratings for this monstrosity are going to fall off the cliff.

I look forward to reading what the rest of you think, because I just can't watch it. Something about it just grates on me every second it is on. Murrow is doing about 3,000 RPM right now.

I was the designated watcher at our house. Haven't watched CBS in years and after tonite, I will not revisit any time soon. Katie seems a decent person but honest to God, that was one very weak news presentation. FOX has got CBS so beat. In every category. RUSH was great and his message was all the way pro American and pro patriotism. His was the strongest part of the half hour. FOX and RUSH have got the bar raised so high that it is hard for me to pay attention to the lesser media.

It is miserable, I would rather watch CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, or MTV.

But, Brit still rules. I will continue with him.

Her face looks totally smooth, no wrinkles. Her eyes on Tuesday (I can't stand to watch after that) look sunken and highlighted all around with black, probably eye-liner. Did not look good with her light hair and white jacket. I could have done her up better. What are these people at CBS going for with her look?

I guess to "balance" the Limbaugh section, Katie opened with non-stop Bush bashing. That was just too obvious and really bad.

Rush did well...could have been excellent with simpler words.

It's sad Katie is such a liberal. She's holding her own as an anchor, would be enjoyable to watch if not such a mostly-slanted 30 minutes.

And it's a shame she would let CBS brass talk her into having surgery--her face was fine as it was.

CBS is really missing a grand opportunity here. If they would truly become a balanced evening news report, they would gain and keep a very, very large audience. But I guess their liberal mindset has too strong a hold on them to let that happen.
