Katie Couric’s ratings are about to go through the roof – for a segment that was never meant to air.

The CBS Evening News anchor has been caught on video making fun of her predecessor, Dan Rather, while preparing for a remote broadcast – playing with her coat and obsessing over her appearance, much as Rather did in a similar video last month.

“I’m going to be like Dan Rather on YouTube,” Couric jokes, as she toys with her coat. “Geez, don’t you think he deserves a little payback?”

As she gets herself together, she exclaims, “This tart is ready to go!”
