Well, I’ve been proven right. Just shy of four years ago, I wrote:
I expect Ms. Couric to enjoy the same success with the CBS Evening News as Geena Davis [did] with Commander in Chief. All the hype about the show will give her great initial ratings which will gradually decline as the buzz wears off.
Couric’s “newscast” drew 1.62 million fewer viewers than did its counterpart on second-place ABC. And over 2.5 million fewer than first-place NBC.
I guess making nice with Joe Biden just doesn’t help you earn the respect of the American people.
