Bad To Worse For Katie’s Evening

Uh-oh: Last week’s CBS Evening News viewership was the lowest it has been since at least 1987. It’s accurate to call it the smallest audience for the Evening News in decades — the lowest viewership in 20 years. Last week’s average total viewership was 6,050,000. Katie Couric‘s previous low of 6,157,000 came in March.

Will Katie survive the latest ratings slide?

With the low point coming at the beginning of the all-important May ratings “sweeps,” it’s officially a legitimate question, Gail Shister or no Gail Shister.
