The network newscast ratings for last week are in and "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric" tied its all-time low in total viewers with an average of 4.89 million tuning in during the five days.

The low was set last June, when ABC also hit its own low. (Ratings records date back to the 1991-'92 season.) Last week, NBC averaged 7.42 million total viewers and ABC averaged 6.51 million. We'll have the full breakdown of the week shortly.

The next time I watch Katie will be on Nov. 3rd, when she reports the massive Democratic election debacle. Of course, that assuming she won’t be off “sick” that evening.

I saw her last night at a Burger king, on TV.

My first thought when I saw her ... wow, she’s getting old.

The Perky one has lost .... her perkiness. Bloom fell off that rose long ago. A pound of makeup on the face.

I better hurry up and use my Couric graphics before she gets thrown off the air.

(Yeah, I know. The MSM would never throw a liberal off the air just because of horrible ratings...)

Unfortunately they can probably hang on until they get their GM-style bailout, or Net-Neutrality forces the truth back underground again.

I knew Katie Couric would be a disaster when she was announced as DR’s replacement.

The thing about the liberal media that really is ridiculous is that they think the answer to more ratings is too be more liberal.

The editors and producers all live in their liberal echo chamber caves completely oblivious to reality.

I haven’t watched network news or CNN for many years. I don’t even watch Fox that much.

Network TV is what it is: propaganda. Nothing more, nothing less.

"Nobody wants to watch Katie Couric"

And the few people who do, are dying. Why? Because the average age of the CBS Evening Newscast is old, and getting older everyday.

I just read a story about broadcast average viewing age, and the four broadcast networks all have average viewing ages in the mid-50's. Whatever it looks like - broadcast television including broadcast news will look MUCH different 15-20 years from now, from what it does today.

I think enough time has gone by that we can safely call Ms. Couric the least popular network news anchor ever. Where’s Howard Beale when you need him?

*Who is CBS news?*

Most people are realizing that its phonetic sound sheds more light on what you are really watching:

“See B.S.”

The only people who watch CBS news are the ones at nursing homes who have lost the remote and can’t change the channel.
