Her promos are boring me to tears. :(( Log in to Reply TV Gord October 18, 2012 Katie has a two-year deal, so calls for her cancellation are pointless. This is par for the course. Anderson Cooper went through a few executive producers in his first season. I am surprised that Zucker didn’t last longer, though, since he and Katie were supposed to be buddies. I’m not blown away by any of the new talk shows, but Katie has some good days. Not enough, yet, but who knows. While I’m a fan of Anderson’s, his show is not getting any better and I think he’s just running out the clock on HIS two-year deal.
