Well it had to happen sometime. The talk show episode was absolutely awful! They really stepped in the doo doo this time. Judging by the 95% negative comments on FB, most everyone else hated it too! Hopefully, this doesn't signal the end of the show.
As to the comments about Catherine wearing Captain's bars, she's isn't. The Navy has their own ranking. A single silver bar is a Lt. Junior Grade. Double silver bars are for a Lt. Senior Grade. A gold leaf is a Lt. Commander and a silver leaf is a Commander. A Captain in the Navy wears silver eagles on their lapel.
