Katie Couric Useless to Today Show


I hope you've already placed your wagers, because you're moments from reading the winner of this week's "Fuck You Katie Couric Award." This week, the honor goes to her old haunt, NBC's Today, which has not noticed a slip in ratings since the departure of the dolphin toothed co-host:

In the measurements that mean the most to television executives — ratings and ad sales — NBC's "Today" show appears not to have suffered from the departure of Katie Couric, at least not yet. "Today" beat second-place "Good Morning America" of ABC by an average of 1.3 million viewers in the two weeks following Couric's last show on May 31, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Who needs you now, KC? As long as we've got Roker and the Smucker's "Nearly Dead" report by Willard Scott, we're doing just fine, you old wretch. Your brand of giggly journalism isn't wanted here.

I don't mean that. Katie, come home.

I am 99.9% sure that there is no longer such a thing as "journalism".

Meredith has more talent, class and humor that Katie could ever dream of. I don't know why CBS wanted Katie at all.
