Sarah Palin & Katie Couric Head Back to Morning TV: Whom Will You Watch?
Both will compete for ratings Tuesday, separately co-hosting Today and GMA
As the recent HBO movie Game Change reminded the public, Sarah Palin had no love for Katie Couric after the infamous 2008 interview, when the vice-presidential candidate was pressed by the TV journalist to name even one newspaper that she read.
But now, the public will have the chance to see Palin and Couric in action again – not exactly together, but on dueling morning shows Tuesday, when both will help co-host the two top-rated network morning programs: NBC’s Today (Palin) and ABC’s Good Morning America (Couric).
On Tuesday, Palin called into Today to speak with hosts Matt Lauer and Ann Curry, saying she was looking forward to being with “you good people” on Tuesday.
“Are you reading some newspapers?” Lauer asked her – making Palin laugh and say: “That’s a fine ‘How do you do?’ Here we go.”
Couric – who recently joined ABC, after years of sitting next to Matt Lauer on Today and then anchoring the CBS Evening News – will be subbing for GMA‘s Robin Roberts. In this humorous video she prepares to wake up early again.
But will you wake up early and watch either of them usher in the morning Tuesday? And, if so, which one will you watch?
