‘Katie’ Picked up for Second Season

Disney-ABC has renewed “Katie” for a second season.

“Hosting, producing and launching a show from scratch has been challenging but very rewarding,” said Katie Couric who also contributes to ABC News. “I’m looking forward to working with our terrific team to build on the success of our first season, and continuing to share compelling stories, explore important topics, and create entertaining television for our audience.”

Of 18 talk shows on the air, “Katie” is the sixth most-watched among Households and Total Viewers averaging 2.497 million viewers. Couric’s Manti Te’o interview drew its highest ratings since its debut and was the No. 1 talk show in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia last Thursday.

The questions now are, how many stations will stick with “Katie” in season two and what new stations will she pick up. Stay tuned for that.
