Katie Couric Went on a Blind Date With ... Bob Saget (VIDEO)

Katie Couric Went on a Blind Date With ... Bob SagetIn the annals of "unexpected blind dates," Katie Couric plus Bob Saget is about as unexpected as Jon Stewart and Jennifer Aniston. But both of these things actually really happened. It just goes to show that romance can bloom anywhere. (Well, sort of.)

On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Ms. Couric discussed her first date with Mr. Bob Saget -- famous for being the star of 'Full House,' the host of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' -- as well as for being a surprisingly dirty stand-up comedian. Host Craig Ferguson was intrigued. Did things work out on the date?

... Well, no. They didn't. Although the news anchor did describe Mr. Saget as being "lovably neurotic." This is sort of what we call "faint praise," or "letting someone down easy," though. Who really wants to be called lovably neurotic during a romantic situation? In retrospect, it's unfortunate that Craig couldn't have been the third wheel on the date. He had an excellent suggestion, which he offered to Katie free of charge. "You could have hit him in the nuts with something, and that would have been great."

There was a 0.5 second pause, and then the host added this piece of unnecessary clarification: "Y'know, people in the 'America's Funniest Home Videos,' they always -- get hit in the nuts with things?" Katie gave him a blank-faced stare. " ... Yeah?" she said. There was another short yet deadly pause. " ... Yeah," Ferguson replied. Maybe Ms. Couric and comedians just aren't really on the same page. Too bad! We would have been interested in a Craig/Katie pairing as well.

You must care a whole lot about a rats asses to go on the internet, read and comment on an article that is about two people for whom you don't give a rat's ass.

Ohhh, again they are giving America's cutie doll the spotlight. What a phony she is. They call her a "journalist" when her college degree is English with absolutely no journalism teachings. Her bias shows through like a beacon.

How in the name of common sense does she hang on to the evening newes on CBS? The "cutezie-tootzie" crap wore out a long time ago.

Katie Couric, ain't she just the sweetest little cherrup you have ever seen. That said the woman is a deadly viper ready and able to show her angst and hatetred at a moments notice. She is where she belongs, CBS,you know the media group that brought us the news the way they saw and wanted it reather than the was it was or is. Guys like Dan Rather, Bill Moyers and the ever loving liar Walter Cronkite.
Years after he was off the air he admitted being a liar and reporting his warped and twisted views on the war in Viet Nam. With all her little girl smiles Katie has proven herself to be just another left-wing hack. Your attempt at selling her as Americas sweetheart of the news is pathetic.

Where is Sara and equal representation from the media with all the power?
