Katie Couric wants her show to be taken seriously. A source tells the NY Daily News, “If there is one thing Katie hates more than being called ‘perky,’ it’s being called ‘tabloid’.

Couric has made it clear she wants to be taken seriously at work, and at the studio she has even made fun of our culture’s obsession with celebrity. Katie comes from a world of TV journalists that think appealing to the lowest common denominator — celebrity — is cheap. Jerry Springer-type TV is not something she is interested in. Anderson Cooper vowed to do the same. He hated covering gossip. He even refused to say the name ‘Paris Hilton’ on TV, and look what happened to his daytime TV show — it got canceled.”
