With Katie Couric’s "CBS Evening News” floundering in the ratings, staffers resorted to dancing to Michael Jackson’s "Thriller” at a recent pep rally held by executive producer Rick Kaplan – a move former anchor Dan Rather found rather bizarre.

"To say I’m surprised would be understated,” Rather told Fox News Channel’s "Your World.”

"But if they think it will help them, God bless them.”

Rather also said Couric will remain in the anchor chair as long as CBS chief Les Moonves retains his post, noting: "Katie Couric was his hire.”

But more bad news looms for Couric. As NewsMax’s Insider Report revealed, the author of an upcoming book about the anchor promises it will expose a "dark side” of Couric and says she is already "freaking out” about the book.

Ed Klein, author of the bestseller "The Truth About Hillary,” told mediabistro.com: "Beneath the public image of the blithe spirit, there is a life story of great tumult, confusion, conflict, ambition, over-reaching, diva-like behavior and romantic relationships gone bad.”
