Former CBS Evening News Anchor and NBC “The Today Show” co-host Katie Couric is jumping networks again. This time she’s signed a multi-million dollar deal with ABC to host a daytime talk show.  Insiders say the show will be “topical with a scaled-back celebrity” element. 

- In other words, Tom Cruise will be invited as a guest but he won’t be allowed to jump on her couch. 

- Execs hope “The Katie Couric Show” will fill the void left by Oprah’s departure… and let’s face it, that’s a pretty big void! 

- And instead of giving away cars, Katie will give every woman in the audience “some perkiness!”
