Katie Couric's Manti Te'o Interview Draws Big Ratings

Katie Couric's interview with Manti Te'o gave her young talk show some of its best ratings ever.

Couric's tough questioning of the football star drew praise -- and viewers.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote Friday that the sitdown drew a 2.6 household rating -- a 30 percent jump from the norm.

Couric said that, after talking to Te'o, she believed that he had not been involved in creating his fake girlfriend -- but that he had been very foolish.
