Katie Couric's Talk Show OFFICIALLY Canceled! Find Out What Went Wrong HERE!

katie canceled katie couric abc yahoo news deal ratings disaster june 2014

It's official! Katie is kaput!

Disney-ABC just threw in the towel on Katie Couric's daytime talk show! They're pulling the plug after the airing of season two's final episodes next June!

Katie and the network released a joint statement today, insisting the decision was mutual. It read:

“We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the No. 1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-13, and we look forward to the rest of the season.”

Aww! Katie's ratings haven't been stellar, with some folks even calling them disastrous, so this cancellation isn't exactly a huge surprise!

Still, we love Katie — it's sad!

Thankfully, the legendary journalist and TV personality won't be lining up for food stamps. She already reached a $6 mil agreement with Yahoo! to become their global anchor in 2014.

Get that money, gurl!!

Will U be sad to see her show leave the air?

    I'd be cheering and excited to see what fills the spot… if I had a TV.

    Today, I watched it for the first time since February, then I remembered why I quit watching it ten months ago. Katie is obnoxiously pushy. When she asks certain questions, she scowls at the people who she is interviewing like they will be sorry if they don't answer those questions to her satisfaction. The way that she adulates and rubs up to certain celebrities on her show is nauseating. Some of them look at her like she is an overly giddy, obsessed fan who needs to tone it down about a hundred notches and chill out. They may be right.

    what went wrong is that she's a bore. Its really not more complicated than that. And she's not even perky anymore.

    SHE is Immensely Irratating…She hates to be called Perky, But she is either very
    perky, Laughing at everything, even if it's not funny, OR she staring at someone'
    Trying to make them cry, If they don't give her the answer she wants, she'll stare
    and try to break em down…and BORING..can't believe it was the top rated anything…

    I never understood why she was even given a second season. The first season was also a ratings disaster. When she anchored the CBS Evening News, that was rated the lowest of the 3 networks. Why she keeps getting new gigs when no one wants to watch her is beyond me.

    I watched it once on the day People magazine announced Adam Levine as "Sexiest Man Alive". And then "she" (surely her staff) Photoshopped her fiancee's head on Adam's body on the cover of People — you know, because HE is _her_ SMA. I literally groaned and decided to never watch it again. As a reporter, one should report the news — not make it about yourself.

    Who would watch Dr. Phil if he made his counseling show all about himself?

    She is the most over paid person on TV. I still dont get how she failed on CBS. Then ABC paid her a fortune and she failed there also. Now Yahoo is going to pay her millions and no one will watch her at all. She is a great example of how we like to award mediocre talent in this country.

    Re: fsdsssaa – We really do give too much weight to personality. Another example is Rachael Ray, who can't cook!!

    I've never watched any of her programs because I don't live in the U.S. What will put Katie Couric in history books is her interview exposing the idiot Sarah Palin. The world will always be thankful for that.

    Maybe they shouldn't have cancelled AMC and OLTL for her…betting they lost viewership because they upset their target audience!

    the show is boring, she sucks up to guests she knows and she is rude to the one's she apparently does not like. I have never seen any talent in MS. kATIE! ELLEN IS FAR MORE INTERSETING AND FUN you can tell she really gets into her job and entertains. Judge Judy has more charisma!
