Katie Couric's daytime career looks secure: Her show "Katie" has been renewed for a second season.

Getty Images “‘Katie’ is the number one new syndicated talk show of the 2012-2013 season and we are thrilled to announce a green light for season two,” said Janice Marinelli, president of Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

"Hosting, producing and launching a show from scratch has been challenging but very rewarding," said Couric.

The series has led other freshman and sophomore daytime talk shows since its premiere in September, and Couric recently scored a coup with the first on-camera interview with Manti Te’o after the college football star addressed the faked death of a fake Internet girlfriend.
