Now that Katie Couric has left CBS Evening News, she has more time for fun stuff, like spoofing Kate Gosselin on Jimmy Kimmel’s Primetime Special!

Katie Couric was on the show to promote her new book The Best Advice I Ever Got and discuss her recent deal with ABC, which included a promo for her “new reality show Katie Plus Eighty!
The promo featured Katie using a megaphone to announce dinner to the eighty children swarming her house and a slingshot to serve the masses spaghetti and meatballs. The promo ended with Katie surrounded by the kids, shaking one of them off her leg saying, “Get off me!” No doubt poking fun at Kate Gosselin‘s dysfunctional home life on Kate Plus Eight!

While introducing the reality show promo, Katie joked, “I’m particularly excited about that because I think that’s what really clinched the deal for me…I thought people really deserved an inside look at my life because it’s so fascinating… I definitely want cameras in my house.” Haha!

Katie did say that the real deal with ABC will include contributing to various programs at ABC News and a daytime talk show coming in the fall of 2012. We can’t wait!
