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???
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Synder gave fans at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego a few treats, but none may have been better than the sneak footage that was shown to the audience!
We talked a little about the description of the sneak peek yesterday, but there is no way to describe the atmosphere and mood of the snippet of the film except to say that we're pumped for this movie to come out!
After stirring the crowd into a frenzy with the epic stare down between Batman and Superman, the two actors portraying those awesome comic book heroes, Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, appeared onstage, as well.
And it sure seems like no one was complaining of the choice of Ben for Batman then!
After the footage, Zack whipped the crowd into another frenzy by telling the crowd they had to take off to finish the movie, and that's when a bit of footage appeared from the new film Jupiter Ascending, as well! The Wachowskis' upcoming space movie stars Mila Kunis, and we're definitely pumped for that set-in-space epic!!!
