Morning Show Wars: Sarah Palin vs. Katie Couric Rematch
Former CBS Nightly News anchor Katie Couric and the one-time Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will face off once again this Tuesday -- only this time it's an NBC-ABC ratings battle.
ABC recently announced that former "Today" host Katie Couric will sit in for Robin Roberts as co-host of "Good Morning America" starting Tuesday through the rest of the week.
On Sunday, NBC's "Today" show countered by announcing that Gov. Palin would co-host their morning program, also on Tuesday. "She'll reveal a different side of her than you've seen before," the network's website said of the FOX News contributor.
Palin told the other "Today" hosts in a phone call Monday that she'd be talking about topics beyond politics, but the discussion would probably turn toward the subject anyway.
The Palin/Couric rivalry began in 2008 after an infamous interview in which the TV journalist pressed the Vice Presidential nominee to name a newspaper that she read.
