the magazine that had me giggling all through my adolescence:
When ABC announced that Katie Couric would be filling in as co-anchor on Good Morning America, the producers of The Today Show knew they had to do something big to counter-program. And they did! Unfortunately, they did something big and stupid, bringing in unqualified V.P. candidate, half-term Alaska governor and intellectual feather-weight Sarah Palin to co-host. Is this bad, desperate TV? You betcha!
I could not have said it better myself!
By the way, could the Today Show now be starting to feel the effects of the "Palin curse?" Maybe.
In what has become one of the most closely watched ratings battles ever, ABC’s Good Morning America with guest host Katie Couric edged Couric’s former show, NBC’s Today, for the first time. On Wednesday, Good Morning America drew 5.236 million total viewers, to Today’s 5.149 million.
When will people ever learn? Sure she may get you so some initial attention, but in the long run being associated with Sarah Palin is like going skinny dipping with an anchor around your neck.
The only place you are going is down. And fast!
