The ratings are in for the premiere of Katie and they’re impressive. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Katie’s debut pulled in a 2.8 household rating from the Top 56 markets. It also tied with Dr. Phil’s 2002 debut.
Reportedly, Katie built on General Hospital’s lead in.
Couric, who built on the lead from the recently displaced General Hospital by 12 percent, also bested the season premiere of Anderson Cooper's talk show.
