Well, it appears that Katie Couric’s anti-Trump antics have come back to bite her in the butt.
The far-left host took over Jeopardy for the late Alex Trebek and quite frankly viewers don’t seem too thrilled to have Couric taking over this incredibly iconic show.
During the show’s second week with Couric as the host, Jeopardy saw a 5% ratings dip.
That’s absolutely horrific.
Jeopardy!” ratings dropped another 5% in Katie Couric’s second week as guest host, falling behind “Family Feud” to finish second for the first time since Alex Trebek’s last episodes.
“Jeopardy!” finished with a 5.3 household rating, while “Family Feud” led the week ending March 21 with a 5.4 rating.
Couric was the game show’s first-ever female host. On March 8, she took the baton from “Jeopardy!” executive producer Mike Richards, who himself grabbed it from the game’s legendary champion and current consulting producer Ken Jennings. Next up on the show’s guest-hosting rotation was Dr. Oz, who began his run last week (though many were not pleased he got the gig at all). We’ll know how he stacked up next week.
Jeopardy!” has been on a wild rating ride in 2021. The final episodes for longtime host Alex Trebek, who died in November following a battle with pancreatic cancer, hit season highs in early January. The show pulled in a 6.6 rating across his farewell week, with his final episode on Jan. 8 drawing 14 million viewers, more than any episode in over a year.
Surely her outspoken far-left views aren’t helping her in the ratings department.
As we all know, Couric is a die-hard anti-Trump loon who has had some choice words for his supporters, particularly when she claimed Republicans needed to be “deprogrammed.”
During an appearance, Friday on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” former CBS News anchor Katie Couric rebuked Republicans who failed to vote in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump and suggested the 74 million Americans who voted for the outgoing commander-in-chief need to be “deprogrammed.”
“The question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?” Couric asked.
Her words echoed those of Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, who last week said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that there are “millions of Americans — almost all white, almost all Republicans — who somehow need to be deprogrammed.”
She’s a real peach, huh?
It’s no wonder why no one wants to watch this wretched woman.
