Katie Couric's New Talk Show Title Sparks Backlash on Twitter, Facebook
Many people were underwhelmed with the news that Katie Couric's upcoming talk show will simply be called Katie.
The show's title and key art, featuring the tagline "The Opportunity Begins September 6th," were unveiled Monday for the show, which premieres on ABC in fall 2012.
But the news was met with less-than-enthusiastic responses from commenters on Twitter and Facebook.
Among the tweets:
Wow. I wonder how long they worked on this title?
Wow! Did they have to pay [brand consultants] Landor 500k to come up w that?
I literally hate sharing a name with this woman.
When *I* get my own daytime TV talk show I'll probably have a more imaginative name than "Jason". Just saying.
Katie Couric Talk Show Will Be Called....wait for it.... 'Katie'
GASP! What a twist. RT @THR: Katie Couric Talk Show Will Be Called 'Katie'
Michele R. Scott
Now that took DEEP THOUGHT!
Hope they focused group that one.
Dare I ask how long it took her to come up with this?
Katie. Conan. Conan. Katie. Letterman has new material if he ever hosts the Oscars again.
And here I thought it would be called "The Yesterday Show".
Nauseatingly unoriginal. I never watched her on the news so I won't be watching her little show.
If she had called it "Oprah" it might have a chance.
Wow! Great name! How long did that take you???
