Katie Couric

Katie Couric is in talks to return to Today temporarily to replace co-hostSavanah Guthrie when she goes on maternity leave, according to The New York Post

NBC News is said to also be in talks with others, including Meredith Vieira, the Post reports.

"With the Today show in a good place, we are blessed with great talent and many options to temporarily fill Savannah's chair while she's on leave, but there's no plan yet," an NBC spokeswoman said in a statement. "Stay tuned."

Season MVPs: The year's best

Couric first joined Today in 1991, when she ironically was called on to fill Deborah Norville's spot when she left on maternity leave. Couric secured the gig permanently and remained as co-anchor until she exited in 2006 for CBS Evening News. Couric currently hosts her own talk show, Katie, which ends in June. Couric also has a deal with Yahoo! as its global anchor. While Yahoo! has a partnership with ABC News, Couric's interviews aren't covered by that deal.

Who Earns What: TV's Biggest Salaries

Ashton Kutcher

A lot of people think TV is better than movies these days. For many actors, it certainly pays better. Unless you're able to play a superhero, it's tough to get super-rich from big-screen work, so more actors are moving to series TV. The expanded talent pool has given networks and studios extra leverage in negotiating salaries. "There are so few gigantic stars in features and the rest are not making any money," says one industry executive familiar with this year's deal-making. "That's helpful."

The general rule across the TV business is to keep lead performers on new network prime-time series to $125,000 an episode. (Cable networks are going as high as $150,000.) That's not Charlie Sheen money, but it's not bad. "Times that by 22, [and] you can maintain a pretty good lifestyle based on what you were making in features but now you're not," the executive says.
