I wonder how many CBS suits are floating their resumes now, and at bargain basement prices?

Katie should never have left her cushy job talking with stupid women in the morning....when the men caught her at 6:00 P.M. they were totally turned off.

No thanks. Looks like she's had so much botox/plastic surgery you could bounce a quarter off her face.

And See-BS, if you're interested, I could lie for a million a year. I might not even laugh at your idiotic reporters (much).

Yea, and the morons who selected her are making even more.

Can't say they were not told, but they are sooooooooooooo smart they knew better - Well I guess they were wrong but nobody cares - so deal with it you morons with the big egos and little common sense.

I couldn't believe CBS gave a promo to Katie Couric on the very first commercial break of the game. Talk about desperation...can you believe the money the network gave up to play that spot?

Here's my favorite. She was even behind a show that hasn't been produced in 17 years. This was in a in a major market ;

Couric has lowest week yet; 7th place in LA behind "Mama's Family"

Next, they'll bring in Keith Olberman to team up with Perky to boost the ratings!

Serously...she is already toast.

It's just that they hired her at such a high salary and with so much fanfare that they can't make the change that quickly.

What the heck, go all the way, we can get an Indian H1B in here for $40k-$50k. Sure we wouldn't be able to understand whoever it was, but I don't understand Katie.

CBS will pay Rather, either by lump sum or biweekly paychecks, through November, when his contract is officially up. Since he makes $12 million a year, that was worth arguing about, and CBS executives did argue until Monday.

Reports a month or so previous had her trailing behind reruns of Mama's Family and Green Acres.

It is a good thing that CBS has some successful night programs to pay for the Couric mess.

Katie is a depressing drone as a news anchor. Throw in she's a Bush/America hating commie Liberal and that equals low ratings. I guess you don't always get what you pay for.
