Katie Couric's 'Dreadfully Boring' Show Is A 'Disaster!' ABC Desperate To Replace Her ASAP!

| Filed under: TV NewsKatie CouricSad SadBusiness Blitz

katie couric abc departure near inevitable katie ratings disaster


ABC is fixing to show veteran news anchor Katie Couric to the door!!

Sadly, we don't mean the door to a room filled with gold, precious gems, and an endless supply of Hot Pockets!!

We mean they're considering FIRING her!!!

Her newish daytime talkshow, Katie, has been a ratings nightmare, so this could be the end of her long and glorious run on the small screen!

One studio executive in the know wasn't afraid to dish out cold, hard truths.

The exec revealed:

“[Katie is] an unmitigated disaster. One of the biggest failures ever in syndication. Terrible ratings, no growth, shouldn’t be on the air. Where did it miss the mark? Let’s start with her, she is dreadfully boring. The show offers nothing new to the audience, nothing to say.”

Aww! Katie is obviously a TV legend, but in today's biz NOTHING is more important than ratings and ad revenue!

A source close to ABC was nicer with their phrasing, but basically expressed the same sentiment.

That source admitted:

“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.”

The chances of her show coming back for a third season are virtually nil!!

Poor girl!!!

If these rumors are true, we hope the millions and millions of dollars she's worth holds her over until she finds a new job!!

    Re: Jessi – that would only be too smart, wouldn't it? The good ones never last.
    Katie is a good report. Talk show host? Not sure. However, this probably won't last.

    But Kris Jenner's new show, no matter what people say, will probably be on for 20 seasons!

    i was JUST telling my friend today that i've tried numerous times to watch the Katie show and it's just entirely too boring. she seems dry and the stories she talks about are genuinely good topics. she needs to back to anchoring because she was great.

    Here let me push the truth. The majority of Americans are right of center. Main stream media and networks are far left. Katie is a far left lunatic. She turns off most people as do the networks, ABC, NBC, CBS, pushing the liberal thinking. They may have a platform, but they don't have a root base. That's why other networks are kicking ass. They don't worship at the liberal throne. Ouch! did that hurt you koolaid drinkers. Yes. Yes it did.

    Re: DaVinci – Totally agree. Couldn't have said it better myself!

    Pfft my tivo gets it every day. She's not boring, I still prefer Ellen but she's a close second.

    Huh?! I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone. Her show is amazing! I love her AND the show! If they want to fire her for other reasons, then be honest. But to say that her show is boring?! I don't get it. These producers ought to be ashamed of themselves. They're all contributing to the dumbification of America, by firing the likes of Katie Couric and hiring PimpGRANDmomager (WHORE PROMOTER). If Katie gets fired, I hope she goes back to co-anchoring with Matt Lauer. That was the Dream Team! I would set my alarm and watch from 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m., Monday thru Friday if they put them back together. Katie & Matt would SMOKE Good Morning America!

    I'm with you….bring back Bonnie Hunt.

    I've actually never watched Katie's show, so I can't say anything more.

    I enjoy Katie shows when she is interviewing celebrities, not ordinary people. So many other shows do this but I find Katie to be a fascinating and articulate interviewer who is able to glean information other interviewers do not. When she is doing shows like Swamp People, I feel it degrades the show and Katie. She was going great guns and then got into all this junk that other shows fill their time with and now she is at greater risk of being just one of the stupid daytime talk shows. Let her do what she does best and for goodness sake, keep Matt Lauer (the loser) as far from Katie as possible!!!!

    Agreed .. Katie's voice & robotic "compassion" are very annoying.

  14. dddff says – reply to this


    Katie's show is unwatchable. She is so uncomfortable to watch.

  15. 15

    This is ABC gets for canceling their soaps and trying to cancel GH!!!! Shows that the suits NO NOTHING!!!

  19. 19

    Now she has been on all 3 networks. She was a disaster on the CBS Evening News and now this. That is what you get when you take over the GH timeslot. The only people who are surprised about this latest failure are the ABC programming morons.

    Re: Jessi – I loved the Bonny Hunt Show. Should never have been cancelled.

    Re: janie – Wrongo. Her talk show is on ABC.

  22. Char says – reply to this


    Return the soaps!!!!

  23. char says – reply to this


    Re: Nunya! – I agree with you!!! Bring back our stories!!!

  24. Char says – reply to this


    Re: janie – she is on ABC. They put her on in place of General Hosp. and moved GH to 2:00 And got rid of the other two soaps. which is a shame. I am so sick of talk shows and reality TV> It's just cheap entertainment.

  25. 25

    I haven't liked her show since the beginning! She talks down to people, tries to sound "HIP" when talking to younger guests and is just way to condescending! I tuned in a couple of times only because of the guests she had…but then I just couldn't take the "Katie" part!!!!!

    I think they need to bring back Guiding Light and As The World Turns. I watched them all my life and we don't need more talk shows. I turn them off.

    Re: PM2901
    I don't think that there is a legitimate & authentic reason for disliking Katie, and no dreadfully awful excuse for not liking the show. Many people and causes arrive through her doors, and many positive achievements, information and goodthings are brought to light and where good is accomplished is all that is important. Katie's intense hatred for Johnny Depp is obviously apparent by past remarks about him being a "dirty white boy, and I would like to scrub him with a brush." unquote. I find this talk to be tasteless and rather disparaging, but since I'm not a huge J. D. fan, I disregard it as a 'brain fart.' As for your comments I find it rather bizarre that you speak of some "whore promoter" and I must admit that I am at a loss as to "who" you are referring to "?" I am over 50 so some of the code language that is used by younger individuals leaves me baffled, " '?' " If someone has the gall to say what they say then have the integrity to explain it as well !

    Re: DaVinci
    "Why so confrontational and so political?" Did your bruised ego wake up on the wrong side of 2012?? How in the stars did anyone ever get the impression that Katie was ultra left wing liberal ?? (I must a missed that memo ! ) Don't worry when the 'Koch bros' buy the L.A. Times you will find yourself in Right Wing Tea Party Heaven and Katie will be replaced by Elizabeth Hassleback. Why don't you go crawl back up Rush Limbaugh's ass and come back out when you REALLY have some
