The Downward Spiral

I wonder how long CBS is going to stick with Katie Couric, whose ratings have been lower every week than the previous week. CBS is now mired in third place with last week's viewership being 7.04 million (average) to NBC's 8.56 million and ABC's 7.97 million.

I have to think that the biggest reason for the drop off is their new Free Speech segment which is nothing more than having blowhard conservatives spout off something idiotic. This segment comes along at exactly the same time that viewer are tuning out such people.

It seems to me that the CBS Evening News is trying to become the Fox News of network news. That might have worked a few years ago, but now they are behind the curve, and behind in the ratings.
