Katie Couric Announces Her Move To Daytime, But Can She Replace Oprah?

   By drodriguez  Jun 07, 2011

For all of those missing their daily dose of Katie Couric, she has announced that she will be returning to TV very soon. Reuters reports that Couric has signed a deal with ABC to host and produce her very own daytime talk show which is slated to begin in September.

Though the daytime show does not yet have a title, Couric herself tells ABC in an interview that it will be a place where “you can go to make sense of a very complicated world. Smart conversation, those are two words that I would like to aspire to, and also fun conversation.”

The question on a lot of people’s minds now is: Can Katie Couric fill Oprah Winfrey’s shoes now that she will hold the coveted daytime spot?

I wouldn't compare her to Oprah. I'd hoped she'd return to morning news like she used to do, it fit her personality more, she's more spunky than the nightly news allows and that's what makes her shine. A whole hour day time show of her, we have enough talk shows, and while she's cute I couldn't watch a whole hour of her she's too irritating at times.

I don't find her to be personable at all. No one can replace Oprah's show.

Never liked her...never will....Sorry! And...I don't think we need yet another talk show... It's obvious she's trying to fill Oprah's shoes...it just won't happen.

I saw her on Jay Leno last night. I don't think her talk show sounds any different than anything else on daytime tv. I doubt she can take the place of Oprah Winfrey. I think it won't last very long.
