That said, I’m glad “Katie” didn’t murder GH and it’s been saved because I would hate to not watch.

Log in to Reply Jon August 28, 2012 I MAY watch the Streisand episode but other than that, hell no, mostly because I can’t stomach Gummy! Log in to Reply vannyishere August 28, 2012 Kill me but as a woman I like the fact that the first month she’s focusing on these types of guests. It would be great to see an over 50 segment, as so many women are discounted after they are 50 as if their life is over. Many women use 50 as a benchmark for major lifestyle changes Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 August 28, 2012 Too me Katie is fake and disingenuine. It’s a race to be the next Oprah. Didn’t Jane Pauly have a similar show that tanked? ABC Daytime is probably logging a lot of prayer time with this one. Log in to Reply harlee490 August 28, 2012 Absolutely! I will be watching, I’m excited about her show. All the demeaning comments present & past about her show but I for one will support her show as I am for Anderson Cooper. Log in to Reply nysam August 28, 2012 Other than Streisand none of these names are big enough “gets” to help Katie be a ratings champ. Log in to Reply pumpkin August 28, 2012 Well, I am a news buff so I am anxious to hear what the person who contracted that virus has to say. I also think women can do a second chapter if they have their health. I have lost soaps and moved on to other soaps. There is no choice. The networks are going to look at bottomline. I know some of my friends who moved to movies or they watch metv which has lineup of past shows. They did not turn to the current soaps on right now. I did, but they did not. It is what it is. Log in to Reply brettyboy August 28, 2012 NO NO NO. I can’t believe Daytime Confidential is supporting this. It is a soap replacement, whether the times have been shifted or not! Log in to Reply shirls429 August 29, 2012 >) There is now way i’ll be watching witchy Katie Couric sorry guys but,she is a poor excuse for a Daytime talk show. Log in to Reply Lulu in the sky August 29, 2012 I am with you on that one Jon… I will watch the epi with Ms. Streisand but the rest is just…hi…been there, done that. Over and over again actually. Log in to Reply TomZulawski August 29, 2012 I’m so talk showed out, if I ever see another reality show or cooking show, or medical show for the rest of my life, I’ll be so okay with that. I want some escapism, give me a good drama to lose myself in for an hour a day and I’ll be happy. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 29, 2012 Katie Clorox needs to retire!! Boring heifer!!!
