HomeTVKatieSteve Harvey Ties Katie in Key Demo Jamey Giddens September 25, 2012 Katie, Talk Shows 6 Comments Katie might be the No. 1 new syndicated daytime talk show, but The Perky One's numbers are continuing to slide from her impressive Sept. 10 debut. According to Broadcasting and Cable, Katie has slid 17 percent to a 1.9/6 rating in households. The Katie Couric-helmed vehicle has also fallen 25 percent among women 25-54. While Katie is dealing with early viewer erosion, rival Steve Harvey managed to tie Couric's show at 0.9/5 among W25-54. To find out how the other new talkies are doing, click here!

With over 1 1/2 years in development- and an 80 million dollar budget, and all that advertising, I’d say Katie has really failed for ABC/Katie. She’s not genuine, her show is trying too hard. At least you know with Steve what your going to get! Log in to Reply TV Gord September 25, 2012 Pretty sad for all of the new talk show offerings. None of them are even approaching the top 25 of syndicated shows. It’s good to see Steve Harvey exceeding expectations. That may be enough to build some momentum. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott September 25, 2012 My beloved One Life To Live is gone cuz of this sinking ship talk show. Sad and pathetic. Log in to Reply TV Gord September 25, 2012 One Life to Live would be gone no matter what. Log in to Reply marybee50 September 25, 2012 Tv Gord-I told you in past posts I would try Live with Kelly,and I did.I’m finding I like her alot more with Michael S.Also,checked out Anderson and Steve H,and I’m finding them,on the most part,pretty entertaining. However,I don’t like The Talk or View.Too many mouthy women. Log in to Reply TV Gord September 26, 2012 I’m glad, marybee50. I know what you mean. I’ve always liked Kelly, but he does seem to soften her rougher edges a little more. I think they’ve got a natural chemistry.
