Anchor Katie Couric’s cringe-inducing interview with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin may have taken place nearly four years ago, but there still seems to be some bad blood between the two leading women. Even so, the television host, whose new daytime show Katie is set to air later this year, would be happy to have the Alaskan make a guest appearance on the program.

Couric was particularly bubbly and a little sassy on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, where she had some disparaging things to say about Donald Trump’s recent behavior:
“He actually can be a very, very nice person with a good heart, but I think he was just acting like a jackass for a while.”
Couric said that though she’d mingled with the Donald at “events in New York” (Leno said he had too, of course) where he’d been pleasant (Leno noted how polite the Trump children were at such events), she found the whole presidential bid to be “strange.”

Jeff Zucker is back… sort of.
ABC announced today that former “Today” show co-host and more-recently-former host of “CBS Evening News” Katie Couric would be launching a new syndicated talk show on its network, confirming one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry.
Zucker, meanwhile, will produce the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A new documentary called “Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop” chronicles the 32-city standup tour the forsaken late night host launched after his brutal split from NBC. By most accounts, it paints him as sympathetic, wounded, beloved and, yes, hilarious. And while O’Brien is safely settled over at TBS now, the documentary reportedly reexamines the personal pain he went through during the fallout with NBC.
Yep, it’s absolute last thing Jeff Zucker wants to see released right now.
