We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: Katie Couric makes her GMA debut, Sarah Palin says hello to the Today show gang, and a peek into the next Aaron Sorkin-inspired cultural touchstone.
What big assignments did temp Katie Couric tackle on her first of five hosting ABC's Good Morning America? Well, why let her perk go to waste on hyping just one single ABC show and have her go behind the scenes of Dancing With the Stars for a segment? OK, so let's set aside the journalism today and focus on the montages. Specifically, this montage of Couric struggling to wake up on time for her big premiere set to The Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" by Wham! (we had to look up that last one, too). That's a pretty '80s soundtrack for a TV host we usually associate with the '90s and early oughts, but we'll roll with it because, well, we can sympathize with early morning blogging demands.
