TV personality Katie Couric can say she’s done it all. She’s been a morning show host on “The Today Show” an evening news anchor on “The CBS Evening News” and a correspondent on the venerable news magazine show “60 Minutes.” Now she’s back to daytime in her own show, “Katie,” which debuted earlier this week. Despite some lukewarm reviews, the syndicated daytime show started off well – its debut garnered the highest ratings for a daytime talk show since “Dr. Phil” debuted back in 2002. And she’s carrying women – the people who matter the most in daytime – by huge percentages over newly minted daytime talk show hosts Steve Harvey, Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst, reports The Washington Post.
So it makes sense that Katie’s first push is to women and, to that end, she’s lined up an impressive group in the next few weeks of her show. She’s already interviewed singer Sheryl Crow, flesh-eating bacteria survivor and multiple amputee Aimee Copeland and singer/new mother Jessica Simpson. TV-shy Barbara Streisand, Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez, Wendy Williams, Demi Lovato, Sofia Vergara and “50 Shades of Grey” author E.L. James will all be joining “Katie” in the first three weeks her show is on the air. With the theme of new beginnings, Katie will explore how women making changes are handling them.
