ABC executives have concluded that Katie Couric’s daytime syndicated talk show is a disaster and will not renew it come fall, Fox News reported on its website today (Wednesday). It quoted one studio executive as calling it “One of the biggest failures ever in syndication. Terrible ratings, no growth, shouldn’t be on the air. Where did it miss the mark? Let’s start with her, she is dreadfully boring. The show offers nothing new to the audience, nothing to say.” It is a virtual certainty that unless ratings for the show pick up substantially that it will be canceled at the end of its second season in the fall, possibly earlier, said the Fox News report. Programming staff already is “desperately running around approaching talent and offering to train them to replace her as a new daytime talk show host,” said a Fox News source. “It’s a number-one priority.”
