Katie Couric is maintaining that neither she nor anyone else at CBS is disappointed with her current third-place ranking in the ratings. In an interview with today's (Tuesday) USA Today, Couric said, "Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will The CBS Evening News. It's a process, and being in the middle of the process, while it's sometimes challenging and can be frustrating, that's really in many ways the fun part." As for dropping the daily Free Speech feature last Thursday, Couric maintained that it was not being dropped -- that it was suspended for one day only to allow additional time for her interview with Michael J. Fox. "We never said it was going to run every night," Couric said. "We said from the outset that we're going to try new things and we may adjust and reevaluate."
