Sure, but with numbers like falling like this how long will she last?
Time will tell, but I don’t think it will be very long before major changes are made to plug the NEW hole in a sinking ship.
*************************
Her Sept. 5 premiere drew 13.6 million viewers, followed by 10.3 million Wednesday, 9.5 million Thursday, and 7.4 million Friday.

No worries, says "Evening News'' boss Rome Hartman.
"I'm not panicked, I'm hugely encouraged," he says. "If anybody's panicked, they need to go back to ratings school. We had millions more people, and millions of different people, watching the `Evening News.'"
It will take weeks, if not months, before any meaningful conclusions can be drawn, Hartman says.

Maybe she ought to do the news topless. She was bragging on Leno one night about how they were "all real".

Let me know if she does...
Tell me too, Pale, I'll miss it. I was part of the 13.6 million on the first night just to see. 5 minutes on the second night to see if it would be a Real National News Cast. What a joke!

Haven’t watched it since.

I didn't see it, any night. I haven't watched a main stream ABC, NBC, CBS nightly national news broadcast for years. They're so damn liberal biased it's sickening.

I already know what little miss liberal couric is all about. I sure don't need a nightly dose of it. If she was the only news broadcaster on the only place to hear news, I still wouldn't watch the little skank.

How did she last with mattie lauer for so long? Because she's as big a piss bag liberal as he is.

Apart from her politics, she sounds like she has a lisp or other speech impediment. It's hard to listen to a talking head who talks like she does for more than a couple of minutes. Is this really the best CBS can do?

Yeah, for sure it’s not a broadcaster voice is it?

Pale: I agree, I just watch to see what she was going to try an pull-off.
Hey, on the first show (Yep it’s a show) she did a thing about Tom Cruises’ new baby. Now, THAT is national NEWS!:laugh:

That's it!!!! You've found a way for CBS to get their ratings share back to the days of old! Abandon the news program, just have good looking babes doing porn!

I'll bet even Rush Limbaugh won't be able to compete with that!

P.S. If "they" are real, then they're the only part of her that are genuine.... she's a plastic phoney baloney fake.... I'll bet her name isn't even Katie Couric, it's probably Gertrude Sloczinksy or something horrible sounding like that.
