Katie Couric Might Call It Quits On Struggling Talk Show Because She Wants A New View!

A new engagement AND a new job?!

That might be what's in store for Katie Couric because we hear she's thinking about bailing on the sinking ship that is her talk show.

Although Katie is only in its second season, it seems it's become obvious that this show isn't exactly going to be the next Oprah. But that apparently could be just fine for Katie because she might have a bigger and better plan in mind!

Even though Barbara Walters maintained for a bit that she wasn't leaving The View panel anytime soon, we did eventually find out her plans for retirement next year. And an insider revealed the timing might be beyond perfect:

"Execs are so concerned about publicly humiliating Katie by canceling her show in the middle of her second season that they want to put her on The View this year to slide into Barbara’s chair."

It seems ABC is ready to give Katie the can because she can't carry a solo show, but at least that can might come with the cushy, silver-lining of The View.

We just hope she's got her boxing gloves cleaned up!

    She's made a fortune, and her career was five times longer than it should have been. Retire Katie! I for one won't miss you!

    I CANNOT STAND KATIE COURIC! OMG. and HOW IN THE HELL DID SHE MAKE IT THIS FAR? SHE HAS A NET WORTH OF 55 MILLION. I DON'T GET IT. IF I HAVE TO LISTEN TO THAT LAUGH ON 'THE VIEW' I'LL NEVER WATCH THAT SHOW AGAIN.

    I didn't know she had that much money? She loves the limelight and being invited to important parties. Once you retire you become a nobody in Hollywood and I think she would fit nicely on the View. I rather see Kathy than Barbara who is on her last hip…if you know what I mean.

    She has bombed on all 3 major networks. I couldn't believe they even gave her another season for her talk show. I can't understand why any of the networks would want her at all. Just get married and retire, Katie. Obviously, American has had their fill of you.

    I like "the Talk" better.

    Her voice and laugh are enough to drive me nuts. Like fingernails on a chalkboard. Let her go to the View. I haven't watched that show in years and don't plan on watching in the future. I love the Talk except when Julie doesn't use a teleprompter. She uses the filler word "like" constantly. She sounds ridiculous for a women her age to speak with such immaturity.
