Katie Couric/CBS Negotiation -- DEAD!

5/4/2011 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric's negotiations with CBS to stay at the network to do a syndicated talk show are officially dead -- not gonna happen ... this according to plugged-in sources at CBS.

Our sources say the breakdown occurred because CBS was unwilling to give Katie substantial involvement in the network's news operation.  We're told CBS honchos were willing to give Katie pieces for "60 Minutes," but nothing more -- and Katie wasn't having it.

As a result, Katie will make a clean break from CBS and will not be doing a syndicated show for the network.

We're told ABC is now the likely future home for K.C.

ABC has just signed her. the new show is "Katie's Colon". the show will be part talk show/part animation. once a week, Katie will talk about her colon - how its doing, what it likes to do in its free time, and also show an animated sketch where we journey through her colon with real vivid colors and magical things.

celebrities will also appear and talk about their colon, what they want to do with their colon, and how they keep it healthy. oprah has already been booked to be the first guest.

Couric should do a guest shot on 2 1/2 Men, a CBS show and get a laugh; if she isn't too tight ,now.

She talks out of the side of her mouth, it's really unattractive not to mention disgusting.

This woman reminds me of a nervous, yappy little lap dog. She's not very bright and tries to make up for her lack of depth by asking 'gotcha' questions. She's unattractive and her being on the evening news was asking for failure from the beginning. I never understood the attraction, but then I remembered that this is the network who used fake papers regarding George W. Bush's National Guard service to try to influence a national elections. DISGRACEFUL!

Liberals can't win in the arena of ideas. They have to use "gotcha" questions and fraud to influence voters.

And thats the truth    

AJLind 4 hours ago MoonDust, the quote is "I can see Russia from my house," I believe and yes, it was an idiotic thing to say. Julianne Moore is starring in an HBO movie about her and nails her 100%. Palin is scary even to conservatives. To me she's a complete loser and should never be allowed to run for public office when she quit her job as governor of Alaska. You don't just "quit" public office. If you do that should be your political death warrant. Go away Katie, go away Sarah, you both blow
****************************************************************

Actually, Sarah did not say that, Tina Fey did on SNL.
