Katie Couric vs. Jane Pauley

I was trying to figure out who would win in a fight between Katie Couric and Jane Pauley when I found out I was going to have to work today.

Working on a Saturday after working a whole week. Can you believe it? It’s what happens when the Network loves the pitch of the new show but has “a few little tweaks” and you’ve got to get them done before Monday.

Nevertheless, in regards to Katie Couric and Jane Pauley I’ve broken it down to skills and personality traits and I think when you’ve read through it all you’ll agree with my final decision.

Katie Couric
Cute +1
Smart +2
Friends with Al Roker (who could help in the fight) +3
Single (with more time to practice) +2
Has a Personal Trainer named Electro +2
Up to Date on Current Events +1
Short Haircut (no tangling) +2
High-Pitched Voice (for ear-damage) +1

Jane Pauley
Has Been Around the Block +1
Up to Date on News Magazine Shows +1
Friends with Bryant Gumbel (who could kick Al Roker’s ass) +3
Older and Wiser +1
Knows how to do the Full Nelson (she learned for a newsreport) +2
Wrinkled-face will catch the light and distract Katie +1
Political cartoonist-husband could provide sharp paper for cuts +1
High pain threshold +3

Final Score:
Katie Couric: 14
Jane Pauley: 13

Winner: Katie Couric

Let the numbers stand alone.

    I no longer watch the Today’s Show, Ie the ‘Katie-let me show you some leg-Show’. She’s run a compliment into an obvious ground. Don’t get me wrong, I like nice legs, but she is so pitifully obvious in her exploiting her leg show !.
    Her interviews.. well that’s another subject, with her “I know that…”… phrase every other sentence. who’s she trying to impress, the interviewee , us, or herself ? ?? Goodbye Today Show… Hello Good Morning America

    I see Katie Couric is playing the ‘ caring hurricane disaster journalist’ with her hip boots, no makeup, tossled hair and trying to be the ” I blend in …see” , look at me “! Come on fake one , give us a break !!!!
