Something is happening at Katie Couric's house at 2 a.m. every Tuesday.

No, this isn't another icky Larry King story.

New York City police said Thursday they had been called to Couric's Manhattan home several times recently because of 911 calls traced to a phone listed there, according to the Associated Press. Each time, the 911 operator apparently only hears only static, but police are compelled to answer each call.

Come on, Larry. Go get a hobby. Learn how to feed pigeons in the park or something.

Couric told the audience of her talk show about the strange calls this week.

Police say they are investigating whether something's wrong with her phone or if Couric is the victim of a high-tech prankster. Couric called New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to ask advice on what to do, and is awaiting the results of the investigation.

I can imagine that the New York City Police Department has nothing better to do than burn resources on finding out who's crank-calling from Katie Couric's house. It's probably safe to say she can hire a private detective to look into the matter. Or at least guard her phones every Tuesday.

The calls were first reported in a New York Daily News story headlined "Katie's 911 Hell."
