Default Katie Couric....Did anyone else cry this morning?

I'm sitting here watching the Today Show that I recorded and crying like a baby. Did anyone else watch Katie's last show today? What a great run she had and all the wonderful people she has met and places she has gone. Wow!

I did not.
Years ago I used to like her, but as the years went on she began to annoy me. She seemed to have a " Celebrity/Beautiful People " attitude and a superiority complex. Just MHO.

Regards,
Ben

Angela: If you go to the Today site online, you can watch the first hour of the show.

I have a hard time feeling her pain, since she is getting a gazillion dollars for the switch. It must be really, really hard on the poor little thing.

Katie's leaving is the best thing that's happened to "Today" since Bryant Gumble left.

I like Katie but, Hey! All you have to do is turn over to CBS and WaLa..there she will be. I know. It will be in the evening and not on TODAY show but at least you will still get to see her.
I really enjoyed seeing all the different hair styles she went through. Some of them--I was wondering--What was she thinking?

I didn't get to watch much of Katie in the morning, but I like what she has done to make Colon Cancer a hot topic. She might have actually saved a few lives.

Default Katie Couric

No tears, just a little wistful. How many years was she on Today? She has done a lot for colon cancer awareness and I think it is sad to lose your spouse to this silent killer. I did always enjoy the banter between Katie, Al Roker and Matt Lauer.

So it is Meredith Viera taking over? And then Rosie O'Donnell takes over for her on The View? That should be interesting.

Yes Rosie takes over at The View and Meredith on The Today Show. I also watched Meredith's send off yesterday and wasn't impressed. I really like her, but feel her last show was not very good.

What was Barbara Walters thinking putting Rosie on The View? There goes one good show down the tubes. I think the Today show is lucky to have Meredith Viera. As for Katie she is not losing anything switching to another network. She is making a great deal of money .

I had taped the View on Tuesday and looked at when I got home. Rosie is sure NOT a team player and then to give away a 2 day crusie? And then the next day everyone was getting a book or a CD. Where did ABC get the $$ to do this? Or is Rosie giving away this stuff like she did on her own show.
She needs to allow the other woman talk and NOT all about her.

Regarding Katie- again- where did CBS come up with the money to pay for only 22 minutes of airtime a night and even that is not all her. I know she is going to be part of 60 minutes. I miss her on the Today show. It has not felt right since she left the show the end of May.

I feel the same way. i feel the show won't last long as well. Barbra fired one Big Mouth and get another. How crazy is that? I can tell she is dominating the otherrs and that's funny because I don't really care for nor watch the show.
OUCH!
