Actually, They'd All Probably Rather Not

If Dan Rather’s ratings on HD-Net ever start to drift below the blockbuster status I’m sure he’s currently enjoying, network owner Mark Cuban may wish to bring some attractive (and, let’s face it, younger) female talent to offset Rather’s more geriatric demographic, much like CBS did in the early 1990s, when it pared Dan with Connie Chung.

Might I suggest two possible candidates, both recently unemployed, for the co-anchor chair, whose talents will seamlessly complement Dan–and Cuban’s–worldview?

Meanwhile, IowaHawk and Jim Treacher look at saving another modern television benchmark with even higher ratings, before it too, stumbles from its current lofty artistic heights.
