New (?) Gig for Katie Couric

by Joy Donovan on September 10, 2012

Katie Couric, center, interviewed both Sheryl Crow, left, and Jessica Simpson on the first day of her new talk show.

Yawn.

I start my day with a capsule and would recommend these to anyone. Honest results, fast. . Our goal is to provide medications at discount rates to everyone who is affected by expensive local prices.

I just turned off Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show. “Katie.” It was boring, and I’m disappointed.

On the Today Show, I liked her a lot. I admired how she could maneuver smoothly from an important news story, interviewing a head of state, to a frivolous feature, making fun of a lighter subject. I think she’s smart, and well, perky. I’m okay with perky.

On the CBS Evening News, I thought she did as well as any of the other talking heads. They read scripts. They think on their feet. They have great hair. She did a fine job with what that job entails–reading and nodding.

But Monday’s new talk show? We’ve seen this all before. Just another steady stream of people sitting in front of a studio audience. Her choice of guests, too, was, um, sub-par, inadequate and dull.

Jennifer Simpson, who is getting pretty close to equalling fingernails on chalkboard for me, traipsed out in ridiculous shoes. Even though they showed a clip of her new Weight Watchers commercial, this blond whose 15 minutes surely is up, allowed as how she didn’t want the commercial to be about weight. That must be a surprise to the people paying her to talk about her weight. 

Then Katie felt the forehead of singer Sheryl Crow, who has suffered through a brain tumor. Oh, and we opened with an oh-so-cute dream sequence with former morning show partner, Matt Lauer. This new (?) talk show was an electronic version of “People” magazine.

Again I yawn. I was over Oprah way before she moved on, and I’m already over this show, too.
