Katie: Host Katie Couric Says Goodbye to Cancelled Show

Katie TV show last episodeToday, Katie Couric said farewell to her cancelled daytime talk show, Katie, after two seasons. The show was reportedly dropped due to mediocre ratings and high costs.

The final episode’s guests were Morgan Freeman, Susan Sarandon, Valerie Harper, Martina McBride, and Josh Groban. In his first appearance on the show, Groban brought flowers and noted that he’d wanted to appear sooner but had been on tour.

There were also plenty of taped farewells from stars like Betty White, Barbra Streisand, Jimmy Kimmel, and Drew Brees.

In the show’s final moments, Couric thanked her staff and her audience for their support and noted that it felt like the end of an era — even though the era has only lasted two years.

Couric is moving to Yahoo! where she will serve as a global anchor for the site.

What do you think? Did you watch Katie? Did you think it was a good daytime series?

I sincerely miss Katie Couric’s daytime show. This is the time of year that I tend to watch more TV and was shocked to realize that her show was cancelled. What a loss for the viewers! I will miss her inspiring, informative, and entertaining variety of offerings.

We were traveling over the summer and came back to no Katie. We really miss her. Don’t want to watch a panel of women sit around and rehash what has already been said on the View. Don’t want to watch disfunctional families fight with one another. Don’t want one more game show. Just want Katie back. How do they determine ratings? They never ask us.
