Hollywood Reporter ^ | 10/9/2013 | Alex Ben Block

Posted on 10/10/2013 6:14:56 AM PDT by dufus

Soft ratings, a huge budget and "disdain" for her female audience — Q Scores report only 10 percent of women view Couric favorably — have the host's Disney/ABC talk show in jeopardy as a renewal decision nears.


TOPICS: Music/Entertainment; Society; TV/Movies
KEYWORDS:

So the inevitable question for me is how can someone who is 57 be perky? Answer: They can't.

She was called “perky” because cute wasn’t an option.

If Disney had any guts they would get Sarah Palin to replace her. THAT would be the ultimate revenge.

She's enjoyed a privileged elitist life for being nothing more than a smile.

Now she should go

I'd be happy to see 99% of the talk shows canceled. Most are totally worthless. They appeal to the stupid and lazy — you know, the ones who vote for Obama.

Instead of all this mindless chatter, let's have programs that educate and inform. Maybe some that actually do something about problems instead of just talking about them.

I think it's some kind of a laxative formulation - you know, the stuff proctologists use?

The term “washed up” comes to mind for some reason.

What ever execs gave her the show in the 1st place should be fired.

It wasn’t too hard to figure out she bomb, the welfare crowd doesn’t get up that early to watch her show

They are probably the same morons that put Keith Oberdork doing the pre-game of the playoffs

First they had some bogus award party to give her acclaim for her nastiness with Sarah Palin.

Then they gave her a news show and ,....plop, it went bust.

And get this....this dumb woman has a column in Woman’s Day when yon fine writer (ME) writes rings around this low-intelligent nothing-burger. Along with millions of other writers cause just cause you were a smiling dumbbell on a dumb morning show DOES NOT MAKE YOU AN EXPERT ON ANYTHING!

Now this.....talk show crapshoot.

Somebody please put us out of our misery and can this beast.

We both graduated from UVA the same year.

I don’t remember her, but she was a BWOC, editor of the Cavalier Daily, etc.

Her show cancellation means she is soon to be on Dancing with the Stars.

I think what should be said about her is what should be said about all these elitist over-the-hill liberals.

"She's still alive?!"

Nothing but a bed spread for those who ran the media and had her in their studios. She was nothing and will remain nothing. Millions of dollars to a gas bag.

The record is a 8.2 crap on the Couric scale.

Compliments of South Park.

I guess going for the "vast" homo audience didn't pan out for her.../s

If not a female audience, what audience did she aim for an daytime talk show?

Dumb, really dumb...

Good. The faster “Perky” Katie Couric’s talk show goes off the air and she's unemployed, the better for America. Katie is a brain dead twit.
