Katie Couric's new talk show "Katie" beat her many daytime rivals, scoring the best daytime premiere in a decade by tying the debut of "Dr. Phil" in September 2002.
According to preliminary numbers, it beat last week's premiere of "Steve Harvey" by 87 percent, Monday's premiere of "The Jeff Probst" show by 150 percent, and Monday's premiere of "The Ricki Lake Show" by 250 percent. It also beat the revamped "Anderson Live" with Anderson Cooper by 115 percent.
"Katie" scored a 2.8 household rating and 8 share in the 56 U.S. metered markets.
The series is executive-produced by Couric and Jeff Zucker, her former producer at NBC's "Today," and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
