    Can’t wait to hear the normal responses of how bad Katie’s ratings are and how it is sure to be cancelled and how bad it is doing.

    Congrats Katie. Glad to see you keep growing. I would love to see the show pop into the top 5 of the syndicated talkers at least once. She has been #6 since her debut.

    And wow 38% higher ratings than Steve Harvey.
