 USATODAY.com - Vieira gets through her first 'Today'   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Not a great morning, mind you, but Meredith Vieira's first day on the Today show easily was good enough to make you think NBC chose wisely when it picked her to replace Katie Couric on this signature broadcast.
(Like Couric before her, Vieira skipped the show's final hour.) Viewers have come to expect this kind of overly effusive, gooey self-absorption at TV entrances and exits, but that doesn't mean they like it.
Vieira always has projected a down-to-earth, no-nonsense likability, and as soon as she stops pushing — and Today stops pushing her at us — that quality likely will reassert itself.

Vieira can follow Katie Couric's footsteps and pretend to be unbiased to viewers while asking overtly tough questions to conservative guests and throwing soft balls at liberal guests.

 60 Minutes | Don Hewitt | Meredith Vieira | pop : ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Vieira was a rising star at CBS and the mother of a newborn baby boy, Benjamin, when she joined 60 Minutes two years ago as a part-time correspondent, filing 10 or 11 stories a year instead of the 22 reported by her male colleagues.
Though Vieira has been asked to fulfill her reported $500,000-a-year contract and come up with ideas for a new role at CBS, her position on the network's highest-profile series is gone.
Vieira, 37, who is married to former CBS News producer Richard Cohen, had some reason to think Hewitt would accommodate her-only last fall CBS rearranged its schedule with a great show of enthusiasm in response to Connie Chung's desire to have a baby.
