    Still in third place, though, yes? I imagine NBC still leads, with ABC not that far behind.

    Anything is better than boring Katie Couric. She was great on morning tv but horrible trying to give serious stories. Her daily show will bomb hopefully.

    I love Scott Pelley. He’s the best thing that ever happened to the CBS Evening News. Where have the CBS been hiding him?
    My husband use to hound me to watch World News so I would know what’s going on in the world but I wasn’t interested. Now that Scott Pelley is on the CBS Evening News I never miss an episode. I’ve learned a lot from Scott listening to the great news he tells. Scott is one of the Great One’s! He’s not only good at what he does but he’s gorgeous, smart and sexy!

    We really like Scott Pelley and watch each evening. If I could meet him in person I would make one request. When he ends with “Fer all of us at CBS…” I wish he would say “for all of us…”. He’s so well spoken and that would sound so much better. He says “fer” a lot, but it’s so obvious as his routine closing remark.
