    Wasn’t a Katie fan but am now, it’s a great show. Very well done.

    Households (1.8 rating), Total Viewers (2.344 million)

    GH that same week: (1.9 rating), Total Viewers (2.521 million)

    Is Katie even doing better than The Chew?

  • Max

    Can’t stand her. Love the Probst show though.

  • James

    Katie is a FLOP. She is getting paid I *think* in a 20-50M range…for only 2.3M viewers? Ugh.

  • Sean

    YES!!!! Katie Couric aka Ms. 80 Million is a FLOP! GENERAL HOSPITAL IS KICKING HER BUTT IN RATINGS! GO GH!

  • Bern

    Congrats to Katie I don’t see her TV show unless there’s a guest that I want to see like the JLo episode. Her show reminds me of Oprah but the daytime version of it.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Is Katie still taking surveys of what newspapers celebrities read in the morning? LOL!

    The Sally Show got cancelled for a 1.9 household. Now here is this dumb show coming in lower than that. I say bring Sally back she was my favorite talk show host!

    I couldn’t be bothered giving her show a chance.
    Didn’t think much of the crap coverage of the Queens Jublilee Concert(or whatever it was called), that she was part of, not letting on that they were cutting out some of the better performances. I’d rather watch, Ellen or Anderson, people who act real.
