The perky Katie of "Today" was a concept which worked. News anchor Katie and afternoon talk-show Katie didn't seem to go so hot.
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER speculates that Katie's contract for her talk show won't be renewed for a third year. The ratings just aren't enough to keep going.
It might be time for Katie to stop the detour from her box. She might be able to return to her perky self in some morning show. Good luck, Katie. We missed the real you.
