Katie Couric Shares Wedding Details on ‘Today’

Couric TodayKatie Couric visited her former show this morning to promote an upcoming “Stand Up To Cancer” telecast and share details from her recent wedding.

“For someone who’s generally fairly hyper, I was incredibly relaxed,” Couric told Savannah Guthrie about her wedding. “It was very small, very intimate…I hate to be shallow, but the weather was perfect.”

“I’m 57 years old; I didn’t want to be in some big confection, kind of floating down an aisle,” she said about her dress. “I picked it like five days before the wedding.”

And the former “Today” host was glad the big day wasn’t crashed—by former co-host Matt Lauer and radio host Howard Stern.

The Ticker: Stand Up, Run Wild, Mogul Find

  • Stand up to Cancer returns for its fourth fundraising telecast Friday, Sept. 5. ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC have committed to airing the telethon. Begun by Katie Couric in 2008, SU2C has raised more than $261 million for cancer research programs.

  • Not only are media moguls descending on Sun Valley this week for the annual Allen & Co. conference, business newsers are too looking for scoops. Look who FBN’s Charlie Gasparino spotted in the Salt Lake City airport.

‘Today’ Anchors Throw Savannah Guthrie a Baby Shower

Savannah Guthrie‘s “Today” show colleagues — Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Tamron Hall and Natalie Morales — threw the expecting mom a baby shower last week at The Glass Houses in Chelsea. Although Morales didn’t attend because she was in Brazil covering the World Cup, Guthrie was feted by NBC’s Jenna Bush Hager, Cynthia McFadden, Contessa Brewer, Dylan Dreyer and Erica Hill, as well as CBS’ Gayle King, ABC’s Amy Robach and Deborah Roberts, and CNN’s Kate Bolduan, who is also expecting

“I have never felt in my life so much genuine joy,” Guthrie said in a speech with her husband, Mike Feldman. “Because when you say that you’re happy for us and you give us a hug or you rub the belly, I know you really mean it.” Watch:

How Long Has It Been Since Charles Krauthammer Watched a Network Newscast?

Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer gave his take on reliable media sources last night. The network news and CNN aren’t on his viewing menu.

“I have not watched a network newscast on any of the three networks in 20 years,” he told Bill O’Reilly. “I gain nothing from it. I know it’s soft news. I know it’s liberal news.”

About CNN, Krauthammer took aim with some humor. “They’re still looking for the Malaysian plane. I think they’ve actually located Amelia Earhart, who’s going to be a new anchor for them. But who watches CNN?”


Evening News Ratings: Week of June 30

EveningNewsNew“World News with Diane Sawyer,” which saw David Muir sitting in Monday through Thursday, was the only newscast to show year-over-year growth in both total viewers and the A25-54 demo compared to the same week last year: up +4% in viewers and up +7% in the demo.

The ABC broadcast also won the week in younger viewers with a +157,000 (+9%) viewer lead over “Nightly News with Brian Williams.” For the 251st week in a row, “Nightly” won among total viewers, but by its smallest gap in 21 months. Just 68,000 viewers separated “Nightly News” and “World News.” The NBC broadcast was down -2% in viewers and down -14% in the demo. The “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley,” which this week sees a new executive producer in former NBC News president Steve Capus, was flat in viewers and down -9% in the demo year-over-year.

All three evening newscasts are based on a 4-day average (Mon-Thurs) due to the July 4th holiday.

Numbers for the week of June 30, 2014:

NBC ABC CBS
• Total Viewers: 7,506,000 7,438,000 5,746,000

Hasselbeck: Barbara Walters’ Farewell Show Was Rosie O’Donnell’s ‘Hello Show’

elisabeth-hasselbeck-295x300As Rosie O’Donnell is reportedly set to return to “The View,” her former co-host and current Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck chimed in this morning.

“Talk about not securing the border,” a vacationing Hasselbeck said via phone on “Fox and Friends.” “Here in comes to ‘The View’ the very woman who’s spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there… not surprising.”

Hasselbeck added that Barbara Waltersfarewell show was actually O’Donnell’s “hello show.”

“Rosie herself told me on-set, while we were mice-ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everyone together, and it was her idea. Would you think that the woman who left the way she did would be producing Barbara’s goodbye show? Here’s the shocker…it was actually her hello show.”

Despite Poor Ratings, Al Jazeera America President Expects Viewers Will Come

Al-Jazeera-America304As Al Jazeera America approaches its one-year anniversary, network President Kate O’Brian predicts more viewers will start tuning in to the struggling network.

“There will be an inflection point when people realize what Al Jazeera does,” she said yesterday at a press tour for the TV Critics Association. “They won’t want the right-leaning, the left-leaning or the infotainment. They’ll come.”

The Hollywood Reporter reports that O’Brian acknowledged some viewers haven’t tuned in because of the network’s Arabic name and Middle East background, but she still believes success is on the horizon. “It’s a well-respected brand throughout the world. We will get there in America. It will come in time.”

But today, Reuters columnist Jack Schafer explains why viewers are shrugging toward AJAM instead of watching.

Why the antipathy? In some ways, Al Jazeera America has out-CNN’ed the old CNN with its plodding, responsible, in-depth and conventional approach to news. “There’s no real estate for partisan bickering” at Al Jazeera America, wrote USA Today‘s Rem Rieder earlier this year. “Its diet of top national and international stories is a throwback to the story lineup on the network newscasts of decades ago.” The channel’s anchors serve no candy, and no whiskey, either. Al Jazeera America isn’t just the anti-Vice, it’s the anti-Fox, and its sobriety makes PBS’s NewsHour seem like a TV riot in comparison. Is sobriety really the direction Al Jazeera America wants to go? As David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun has written, NewsHour lost 48 percent of its audience between 2005 and 2013, indicating that Al Jazeera America is pursuing a class of viewers that’s headed for extinction.

Rivers said Whitfield was being “nasty and opinionated” in her line of questioning. Dave was all ears, until he wasn’t…
