Apparently, another decision by the ABC/Disney team is not going so well! According to a report today from FOX411 Pop Tart’s News column, “While all television is going through a difficult time and programming is having a hard time finding its niche, Katie’s new talk show does not live up its expectations. Whatever constraints Katie experienced anchoring ‘Evening News’ it is certainly taking its toll, and her return to daytime has backfired.”
Furthermore the item goes on to say that ABC is looking very hard to find a replacement for Katie Couric, “They (staff) are desperately running around approaching talent and offering to train them to replace her as a new daytime talk show host. It’s a number one priority, revealed a source.
Another part of the article relates that an insider is skeptical that Couric’s show will complete its second season. “There is zero chance is goes to a third season. It might not even finish the second.” Right now, KATIE is scheduled in to the fall of 2o13!
What do you think? Happy to hear the news that Katie is not doing so well? Or, are you hoping that the show will get a new lease on life and stay on longer with Couric as a key afternoon talk show host? Weigh-in!
