Sorry, Scott! Katie Couric's CBS Evening News Replacement Doesn't Bring In The Ratings

scott pelley doesnt bring in the ratings at cbs evening news

Looks like Katie Couric's replacement is JUST getting by…

Last month, we heard that 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley was taking over Katie's CBS Evening News anchor position, and we were feeling pretty good about it.

Now, Pelley has taken over, and his ratings aren't BAD at all…but they're not anything fantastic.

During his first week, Pelley averaged 5.7 million viewers, which matched Couric's average ratings for May. His ratings were a bit LOWER, though, than the average for Katie's substitute anchor Harry Smith.

Ah well! Hopefully he's able to maintain his current ratings at the very least.

Have U been watching Scott Pelley on CBS Evening News? Do U think he's doing a good job filling Katie's shoes?

Early Show Co-Anchor Calls Ray Romano A Sex Symbol

early show calls ray romano a sex symbol

Everybody loves Ray Romano…ESPECIALLY The Early Show!

According to Romano, his TNT show Men Of A Certain Age has a larger female audience than male.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"This is what TNT tells me — sometimes they just tell me stuff to shut me up — but they said that women are — we have a bigger woman (audience)."

Here's what Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith had to say in response:

"I think maybe you guys are actually sex symbols. I think it's a magnet, you're magnets."

Here's what Ray had to say about that:

"That's a sad commentary."

LOLs! You def deserve to be known as a sex symbol, Ray, if for no other reason than your HIGHlarious response and your warm, comforting smile.

Do U think Ray Romano is a sex symbol?

CBS' Early Show Cleans House

cbs early show cleans house

CBS will ring in the new year with an almost entirely new Early Show crew.

Starting Jan 3, anchors Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and weatherman Dave Price will be gone from the show. According to CBS execs, they'll still be working for CBS News on-air…just on different programs.

Here's what CBS News had to say about Harry Smith's new role:

"[He] will shift his focus to hard news with an expanded role as primary substitute anchor on The Evening News with Katie Couric, Face the Nation and Sunday Morning while continuing to report major stories for all CBS News broadcasts."

And here's CBS News/Sports president Sean McManus on Harry, Maggie, and Dave's futures at CBS:

"We appreciate Harry, Maggie and Dave's countless contributions to The Early Show and are looking forward to the contributions they each will continue to make at CBS News."

The only member of the news team who will remain on The Early Show is Erica Hill, who will become a co-anchor with Chris Wragge.

Other new Early Show members include news reader Jeff Glor, who was an anchor on CBS Evening News' Saturday edition and weatherperson Marysol Castro, who was a weather/feature correspondent on ABC News' weekend edition of Good Morning America.

Guess we'll see how things play out with this new team. We'll be sorry to see the old team go, but we're glad to hear that none of them will be out of a job!

Thoughts???

Jessica Simpson Cancels Early Show Performance At The Last Minute

This certainly doesn't help to stop the baby rumors!

Jessica Simpson canceled her performance on CBS' The Early Show after complaining that she got the flu bug and didn't feel like singing. Instead, she just answered a few questions in a quick interview with anchor Harry Smith, telling him, "I won't let you smell my breath right now."

Hmm, could that be a symptom of morning sickness??
