Worried About Couric's Ratings, CBS Fires Producer, Gives Her a Raise

NEW YORK — With Katie Couric languishing in last place in the prime time TV news ratings, CBS has fired the producer of her show, Rome Hartman, and given Katie a raise.

"It can't be Katie's fault," said a spokesperson. "She's a proven commodity. So, it must the producer's fault! And, because Katie is upset about being in last place, we gave her a raise to cheer her up."

The newscast had fallen below the audience levels achieved this time last year by Bob Schieffer, the anchor whom Katie replaced. Schieffer's producer was Rome Hartman, who has more than 30 Emmy Awards to his credit and has worked with some of the biggest names in news, including Peter Jennings and Diane Sawyer.

"That's true, but it still must be his fault," the spokesman added. "If he could deliver higher numbers for an old, unassuming, veteran reporter like Schieffer and make those other experienced news people look good too, then he should be able to do better with a perky, morning show person with no news background."
