I suppose this is semi-on topic.
I was recently watching a promo for the new Katie Couric talk show and she talked about having this great " leave it to beaver childhood". I'm happy that she had a great childhood. Yet, I think about Oprah and her past and how she connected to so many people because of what she experience growing up. Katie Couric has had hardships through her life I think her husband died of colon cancer, If I'm remember correctly and that can be very rough. But I often wonder how many people can relate to Katie's "leave it to beaver" childhood that she talks about and what that might do for how the audience relates to her.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
