Another thing I'm looking forward to in September:
Newtwork Television News!!
So, tonight Katie made her first appearance on the CBS Evening News. It was like a goodbye hoorah for Bob Schieffer. (he seems so gracious and sweet) Did you guys see it? It was so WEIRD to see her on CBS.
Speaking of Katie, did you hear about the slimming scandal? Apparently there are these posters of Katie promoting the new CBS Evening News, and she's been all airbrushed. Note to the wise: If you're going to whip out the airbrush, use it on someone who needs it. Katie Couric looks great and she seems to only be getting better with age. Seriously, put away the airbrush -- or use it on Nicole Richie to add lbs.
And the countdown for "A new day on Today" now stands at 12 days, 9 hours, 2 minutes and 32 seconds. That's straight off Today's front page on msnbc.com. I secretly wish I could stay home from work to see Meredith Vieira's full first day. Oh, and word is "Today" may be going to 4 hours in the future!! (not within the next year or so) Perhaps they will be looking for producers from Pittsburgh who dream of working at NBC by the time they're 30?
