Katie Couric CRUSHES Talk Show Ratings!

| Filed under: TV NewsJessica SimpsonKatie CouricSheryl CrowRicki Lake

Katie is a hit!

Katie Couric's new daytime kiki hour debuted on Monday afternoon to the genre's strongest ratings in a decade!

With Jessica Simpson and Sheryl Crow's help, the premiere garnered a 2.8 household rating, which easily crushed Steve Harvey by 87%, Jeff Probst by 150% and (we're a little sad about this next one) Ricki Lake by 250%!

No love for Ricki? We were SO excited for her return to television and really thought more people would be too!

We totally understand and are not surprised by Couric's success, but how is an established icon of daytime talk being beaten by the host of Family Feud and Survivor???

    I tried to watch the Ricky Lake Show but it is boring. I thought we were going to get the Ricky lake show from back in the day!

    Too many talk shows - can't stand katie - won't watch hers no matter what. Same guests and same topics on all the shows - how much fun is it to hear and see others talking all the time - brain numbing after awhile. Time to get up and get out - either working or exercising!!

    I watched "Katie" for the first half hour and that was plenty. I think people tuned in to see what it was like and that's why the high ratings. I don't think it will last.

    I personally thought her show was boring.

    Katie is not a hit. It has been on 1 day and I have never seen any show advertised so much in advance of coming on the air. First, she had no competition, secondly, no one wants to watch yet another talk show. Katie will do no better on this network than she did on the other two.

    I don't think it had anything to do with Katie Couric. I think Jessica Simpson was the big draw.

    I will never watch Katie. I want my soaps back!

    this woman is painfully dull and tedious. She's the talk show equivelant of a QVC presenter…all phoney niceness and politeness. No edge no spontaneity. BLAND TV.

    Re: Dont Hate! – people probably fell asleep and couldnt therefore change channels!

    This will tank for sure. Another liberal talk show host??? Gee that's a unique idea!

    No one cares what this woman has to say and better yet, who cares what Jessica Simpson the lip syncer has to say.

    Too many talk shows already. Do not watch much TV but when I had to, watched GMA, game shows a couple of soaps and Judge Judy (I really like her).

    Personally, I like Jeff Probst much, much better - more of the flavor of Oprah and very inspiring.

    I love Katie but probably won"be watching her show. My friends and I (all seniors 50 and up) have no interest in J>LO or any of these celebrity people. Enough already, we want down to earth people and real life happenings . We have enough with big names in the news and on all of the other shows. There has to be some other things in this world other than how the celebrities live and with who and who wore what to this or that and even worse who is dating who \. We could care. I would rather watch Guiding Light or something on that equal. Too many talk shows already!! Now with Ricky Lake agaiin. Give us a break!!

    Katie is so full of herself she can barely concentrate on her guests. She thinks the whole world loves her - she won't last six months - phony, phony, phony !!

    I found the show really boring- I do not believe that she beat Steve Harvey.All her friends in the media pumping up her ratings.
