Time for the results of the TVNewser Challenge. One year ago, we asked, and you answered, making predictions for the Year in TV News. And just to let you, we’ll publish our 2012 TVNewser Challenge tomorrow afternoon.
Where will Katie Couric be working at the end of 2011?
CBS News — 38%
CNN — 12%
Her own syndicated show — 13%
Some combination — 18%
None of the above — 19%
Most of you said she’d still be at CBS News. But by April, she’d decided to leave the Tiffany network and landed a deal with Disney/ABC to develop her own syndicated show — which 13% of you said would happen. She’s also working on projects for ABC News.

0 — 11%
1 — 40%
2 — 43%
3 — 6%
43% of you were right on this one. Two of CNN’s shows: “Piers Morgan Tonight” at 9pm and “Anderson Cooper 360″ at 10pm are in their same timeslots. Although AC360 is a reair of the 8pmET show, which replaced “Parker Spitzer,” which was renamed “In the Arena” in February after Parker left.
