Couric Anchors “First Ever Evening Newscast in Prime Time”

couric_1-28.jpgKatie Couric anchored the prime time edition of the CBS Evening News tonight at 8pmET, and we twittered the broadcast.

“Welcome to network television’s first ever evening newscast in prime time,” began Couric.

Chip Reid and Anthony Mason were featured in the first block, followed by a lengthy “Katie Couric Investigates” regarding “domestic violence inside the military.”

“I’ll see you tomorrow at our regular time,” said Couric at the end of the broadcast. “Good night.”

It faced some tough competition on the rest of the networks — American Idol on FOX, Lost on ABC and Knight Rider on NBC (well, two out of three).
