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?

Too bad Katie’s show was cancelled. It had substance. Other talk shows are trivial and vapid.

I think it was pretty crappy that they canceled her show because they can say it was low ratings but I watched it every day

Who make decisions about cancelling shows?. These people should know that they `also have to educate people. Katy “is a lady”. The way she dress, the way she speaks and her intelligent way of conducting her show will be missed. Too bad those young brats that make decisions don’t appreciate this kind of talent . No I will not see the new replacement!
They should be fired!!
