Home Uncategorized General Hospital’s Last Patient: Katie Couric, Who Takes Their Time Slot

It’s curtains for “General Hospital.” ABC announced today that Katie Couric would get the soap’s 3pm time slot in September 2012. That means that the soap, which started airing in 1963, will join “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” on the scrap heap. Of course, “General Hospital” might get a mild reprieve if ABC’s other soap substitutes at 1 and 2 pm don’t pan out. But in the end, the destruction of ABC daytime dramas is now complete and sealed. It’s a mistake, of course, to have jettisoned decades of loyal viewership for the unknown, and all at the same time. But the party’s over. ABC made their Couric announcement at 1pm eastern, even though it was no surprise. There’s a lot of carping about former NBC chief Jeff Zucker as Katie’s exec producer, but frankly, this is what he does best. The show’s going to be a hit, even if it means “General Hospital” is sent to the morgue.

  1. I almost completely agree with Susie-GA. I do however enjoy the Chew. I completely miss OLTL but now that some of them are on GH it’s better than ever!!! The fact that they are going to move GH for Couric is UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! For what ever reason NBC wasn’t interested in her again now she is invading what was a good station will also make me and all of my GH friends leave PERMANENTLY. I have also watched GH for many many years and will not be happy if I have to watch it on the internet or worse yet it is cancelled. Hello Fox is right!

  2. K. Couric just rubs me the wrong way. Grew up on ABC, but if GH leaves so do I. The reality crap is a fad. They’ve already learned The Revolution was a joke and so is The Chew (stupid name!) The ladie of The View can’t make a point b/c they’re no respect; just an over abundance of opinionated estrogen stomping on each other. Hello Fox!

  3. I am so disappointed with the cancellation of these shows!!! GH has gotten me through alot in my life. It’s my escape for one hour from my busy life!! I don’t want to watch food shows or talk shows how to take care of my kids… There are books and websites for these things. Where can I escape to scandalous, sexy people??? Soap Operas are still very much needed and wanted!!!

  4. I can only hope and pray that with all of the loyal fans of GH we will be able to overthrow this decision and keep GH on the air!!! I’ve been watching for over 5 years and I will be a devoted fan until the very end! FIGHT BACK GH!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Hey this is TYPICAL of ABC. They pulled the switch a-roo with their lies about One Life To Live for MONTHS! saying that the show was A OK!
    Then at the last minute they pull the show. Their now doing the exact same thing with General Hospital.The Chew IS staying, Dr. OZ has the HIGHEST ratings on ABC daytime, its NOT going. and ABC will replace the Revolution with just another crappy low production cost show.Also, General Hospital is not even listed in many of the day time line ups for many TV station outlets after September.
    ABC is again lying to the fans.. like whats new??
    Lie to me once ..shame on me for wanting to believe a corporation would be honest. Lie to me twice? I should of known better then to believe ABC wouldn’t AGAIN doop the fans by looking at what they did the first time around.

  6. I too will boycott abc and only watch General Hospital. Both my grandmothers watched it faithfully, and I really got hooked when I was about ten years old. There is absolutely nothing impressive about Katie Couric, and if GH is cancelled, I will NEVER watch ABC again!

  7. Just can’t get over it. For months they’ve been saying No, it’s GH isn’t going to end. Oh, no we’ve saved GH. Katie Couric – she’s a pretty lady, and I hope it wasn’t her decision to take over GH’s time slot. In my opinion there ought to be at least one day of mourning for GH after it ends…

  8. I have been a dedicated soap fan for many years and will not be interested in KC or anything else replacing GH. I am sure there are many more that will agree with me. Didn’t watch the chew and sure as hell wont be watching whatever that program is that is taking the place of OLTL.My daytime hours will be going over to CBS and NBC after GH is gone.

  9. I am just sick. Those 3 soaps have been a huge part of my life. I have watched them since their inception. I guess now, my house will be cleaner and I will have more time in my day, because I REFUSE to watch any of their replacements. If GH goes, I will never watch ABC again, at any time. The Chew is awful………I don’t want to see people eating all the time, I will not give The Revolution even a chance, and Katie C. needs to go back to NBC, she is terrible. You need to reconsider.

  10. This completely sucks. I have been watching so many other channels except ABC that it is sad. If GH goes then ABC has seen the last of me. The have hurt my heart too many times. They are taking away old friends of mine.

  11. I have been watching GH and the other ABC soaps since I was a young girl. I am now 56 years old. I will not watch Katie…she will fail on ABC just as she did on the other network. ABC instead of keeping the soap tradition and its millions of viewers has instead opted to be just like all the other networks and have nothing unique. Same old, same old cooking shows and news shows that we can watch on any other channel.

  12. I have watched General Hospital since 1974. ABC has now killed off All My Children, One Life to Live and now General Hospital to replace them all with stupid talk shows. I will NEVER watch any of the replacement shows. Can’t stand talk shows. ABC is making a BIG mistake. CBS will now rock my world!

  13. Everybody above pretty well sums it up for me too. Never have liked the ‘pixie’ and won’t watch her. ABC just keeps freeing up more hours for me away from TV, or watching something else. None of the new shows appeal to me in the slightest. ABC’s loss and their own stupidity for killing the genre. Screw them.

  14. This is crap. All these other shows suck, the soaps are real television, katie couric and the rest are lame idiots. Not interesting and Money hungry no talent morons. GET RID OF THESE PATHETIC SHOWS AND PEOPLE. Who’s ideas are these? Those people should go also. maybe you all up there in your big office should try asking us real people what we want! TURN OFF ABC NO MORE ABC ABC SUCKS !!!!!!!!!!

  15. That is it I will be done with ABC come September !!!!! I have watched all 3 soaps since 1978 I will not watch Katie’s show nor do I watch the other crap that took over the soaps.I am very upset with ABC/Disney for doing this to what used to be a loyal fan of this channel !!!!! NOT ANY MORE.

  16. After GH is over, I am boycotting all ABC and related stations and will not watch their shows, which means I won’t see their advertisements, and I hope ABC loses lots of money and goes bankrupt. Shame on them.

  17. UNBELIEVABLE how these exec’s don’t take into account the amount of people that have been avid fans of these shows for as long as they’ve been on. Not to mention that they are putting so many people out of work that have been loyal employees for so long. I hope all three of their new shows crash and burn. I refuse to watch the “P.U.” (chew) as I like to call it. And I too can’t stank Katie and will NEVER watch her. BIG MISTAKE ABC. Think I’ll just be switching networks along with many others that I know.

  18. I will never watch her show. I will stop watching ABC all together. ABC has no loyalty to their fans and deserve no loyalty in return. If everyone boycotts ABC maybe they will get our point. I know for sure I will and have many family and friends who will boycott them also.

  19. KC’s show won’t last. I never watched her before, so why would I start now when she is taking the place of my last soap on air. She is just a host with a big pay check, nothing more. So ABC, I WILL NOT be watching anything during the day. There is not anything else left for me to watch during the day.This is just a crock of bull——.

  20. GOODBYE ABC/DISNEY! I have been a loyal viewer since th 60’s! You use to be the number 1 network! Now you don’t even have a rating with me anymore and don’t deserve one! When did you stop caring about your viewers! Was Walt’s body even cold yet! He must be rolling over in his grave! Walt geniuely cared about us! You SUCK ABC/DISNEY AND YOU ARE GOING DOWN WITH YOUR PATHETIC CHEW/REVOLUTION/KATIE! THEIR REPUTATIONS WILL BE AS GOOD AS YOURS! DOWN WITH ALL OF YOU!

  21. So so sad……. What a disappointment, that the PTB at ABC cant see the value of the daytime soap viewer. I won’t be watching Katie!

  22. we are not going to give up on saving General hostptial this is the show I love watching and I will fight for it and I will never never watch anything that Katie couric does. this is the time for us soaps fans to say we are not going to take anothe soap going off the air.

  23. A Hit My ASS! Katie Couric is a bore…she was a bore on TODAY and a bore on THIS EVENING…I wouldn’t watch her if she was the ONLY thing on at 3,and that was before she took GH’s time slot!

  24. I won’t watch any of the ABC shows and quite honestly will quit watching ABC at all after this!!! ABC — Already Been Cancelled. I wouldn’t watch Katie Couric if her show was the ONLY thing to watch on television!!!

  25. I agree the Katie Couric show is NOT going to be a hit. The fact that she has bounced from show to show to show proves that she doesn’t have the staying power nor the charisma to draw the viewers.

    I do not appreciate the networks telling loyal viewers that we need a change. I love General Hospital and will discontinue watching ABC if they force it off the air.

    I really wish the network execs would listen to their viewers and keep the shows we have come to love.

  26. The shows that will, be a hit would be The Revolution, Katie Courics talk show, and General Hospital. So with the timing, I would put General Hospital on at 1:00, and get of the Chew. That show is going no where, with the ratings it has now. And put on the revolution at 2:00, and Katie’s talk show at 3:00.

  27. That’s it, no more channel 6. The only reason I still watch it now is because of General Hospital. The channel 6 news team with Rick Williams, Karen Rogers and Adam Joseph are great, but there are good reporters on channel 3 and 10 also. Unfortunately, Katie Couric will never be a hit on channel 6 or any other channel. Bad bad move ABC. Why doesn’t any of the higher-ups realize that daytime has been carrying nighttime for many many years, I guess they do, just don’t care…..How many other shows in or after prime time have lasted anywhere close to what the soaps have. I have been watching the three of them since they started. Bad, bad move. These new silly reality shows will maybe last a season, not much more mostly because they are on every other channel to begin with.

  28. I won’t be watching. She comes off so insincere to me and I don’t want to gag while watching television. ;-) This is all so sad to see 3 of the shows that nursed me and my mom through recovery from a very bad car accident in the 80s discarded irreverantly like yesterday’s trash.

  29. I can’t imagine in my wildest dreams that the new show is going to be a hit. She hasn’t managed it yet, despite all of the tries at different approaches. ABC Daytime will be a wasteland as formerly loyal viewers move in droves to other networks that are still in touch with what their viewers want.

    People don’t want talking heads and “lifestyle” shows. They’re a dime a dozen. What people want is an escape from the ordinary, from the depressing economy, from everything going on in the world today. That’s why scripted drama is so important. It offers an hour or so of escape, a break to catch your breath.

    The network that figures THAT out and starts a channel with nothing but scripted drama will make a fortune.

  30. ABC will be targeting primetime next. Reality shows like the ones they killed off AMC and OLTL for are cheaper to produce and my guess is even with Couric’s exorbitant salary, she is cheaper than GH. OLTL was making a huge profit for the network, but greed dictated the quest to lower costs and make MORE profit by airing reality shows. ABC viewers, if you think your primetime sit coms and dramas are safe, think again. Keep a tally these next 6 months, 1 yr, 2yrs and you will see the numbers of NON reality shows decline and reality increase. ABC has made a disasterous mistake in cancelling the soaps which millions of viewers watch. There is a current boycott of ABC day and primetime due to the outrage of these millions of fans. This will only make the boycott stronger and more widespread.

    Really? Are these ABC execs this stupid?

  31. i hope all three shows at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm on ABC poop out… i for one and SO TIRED OF REALITY SHOWS, TALK SHOWS AND FOOD SHOWS… ABC is owned by Disney…. i certainly will not watch anything on abc from 1-3pm…. MY THERAPY WAS WATCHING AMC, OLTL AND GH… It made me forget about my problems… those new shows are a reminder of my problems…. no thanks ABC… i grew up with those shows and thought i would grow old with them… A REAL DISAPPOINTMENT.

  32. I am done with abc. Starting with RYAN”S HOPE, i watched the abc lineup since 1975. When GH is gone that’s it. We should revere the wonderful creations of Agnes Nixon and Gloria Monte which have stood the test of time, created daytime tv, which in turn built up the network. I hope some entity realizes their worth and the millions of fans who are still turning the younger generations on to this important genre.

  33. I suggest joining all of the groups that are trying to find new homes for our soaps, doing the tasks and KEEP WATCHING ONLY General Hospital . Do NOT watch the new shows. If GH’s ratings go up, maybe one of the other 2 shows wont survive.

  34. This is the biggest mistake ABC could make. I have been watching AMC, OLTL and GH my whole life. I cannot stand Katie Couric, so I will not be watching her show. I hope ABC realizes their mistake before it”s too late. All they are doing is giving the viewers less of a reason to tune in to their network. The same way they did with AMC and OLTL.

  35. ITA with Angelica … Katie Couric is not a draw. ABC and Disney have apparently put all their eggs in one basket … and everyone knows how foolish that is.

    After GH goes, ABC will never air in my house again. I’ve already moved over to watching the soaps we still have on other networks. After Friday I’ll only be watching ABC for one hour, 5 days a week. Period.

    And now that I know how greedy and ruthless Disney is … they will never get another dime from me.

  36. How dissappointing. I am not a fan of KC,never have been and frankly dont see the appeal at all! Good Bye ABC,been nice knowing you but I will not be tuned in to you any more. Who ever told you that women nowadays need more info and want to change at least something in their lives is giving you bad advice. Some of us are happy with ourselves and believe me if I needed help I would not turn to my TV for it!!!

  37. If Katie Couric takes General Hospital’s place and GH gets cancelled, I will never watch any shows on abc ever! This is so crazy that all of our abc soaps are being cancelled! completely not right! Katie Couric, The Chew and The Revolution are terrible show choices! Too many food shows, talk shows and news shows on tv! Hope these shows are cancelled!

  38. Why is ABC so stupid? Don’t you hear the soap opera fans telling you that they don’t want any talk shows? I will not watch Katie Couric. She flopped on CBS news. Why can’t ABC take her exorbitant salary and bring back the soaps?

  39. Shame on you ABC. You have ruin daytime tv. You will lose many many daytime viewers. I will no longer be watching your stations. I will continue to support GH. I will not watch The Chew or Katie Couric or the Revolution. All I can say is you started a Revolution with your former daytime viewers.. We will never give up we want our Soaps back on!

  40. Sick n tired of this….First they get rid of Another World….Then All my Children , now OLTL…..Do us a favor get rid of the crap…………..like reality shows…..seriously….I have been watching GH,OLTL,ANother World, ALl my children…since I was 9…

  41. ABC IN PLAIN ENGLISH U SUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK…HOW MUCH MORE R U GONNA BREAK OUR HEARTS ?? IVE BEEN WATCHING ALL 3 SOAPS SINCE 1970. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH U PEOPLE ????? ARE U NOT AWARE THAT THERE R PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO WATCH THESE SHOWS????? HMMMM?? MILLIONS AND MILLIONS IN AMERICA ALONE !!! SHAME ON U, U JUST SUCK.

  42. i am a loyal soap fan…i have not watced anything abc except my soaps since april of 2011 and i wont watch anything this channel puts out ever again!!!! please someone with half a brain cell…save this genre!!!

  43. I don’t understand ABC. They are ending an era which many of us just love. I think the people in charge do not understand what they are doing. There is a reason that the soaps have lasted as long as they have. People watch them and have survived. Do you really think these new shows are going to survive over 40 years? I think not. ABC you are going to be loser. Get people in charge who know their audience. Who wants another show about food, news or how you should set your table. People want to get away from reality. So sad.

  44. I agree Margie. Katie was popular only because she was on a popular show. Once she moved over to a CBS news, it was clear she didn’t have the star power everyone thought she did as the newscast continued to suffer bottom feeding ratings. There is no guarantee this show will be a hit but I can guarantee that I won’t watch it not just because she’s replacing GH but because I never liked her.

  45. This has to be the stupidest move Abc could make ..they are canceling our favorite soaps for what? To earn an extra buck! !..I cant stand Katie Couric

  46. Too bad there is not a dislike button.It would clobber the measly likes.
    Disney ruined ABC now networks both suck.

    I don’t watch the Spew and I won’t watch the Repulsion. I know how to cook. I know how to live my life and don’t need people who don’t know me to tell me how to live.

    Too much reality TV, its overkill. Like Halloween candy too much of it at once or everyday and your sick of it. Not to mention it is not all real…scripted situations.

  47. Does ABC listen at all to the fans?? Spend 15 min on any fb or twitter thread to see just how loved these 3 shows are/were. I dare them to give KC General hospitals time slot and I guarantee it will tank. Also if they do its goodbye ABC for me*

  48. I will not be watchin daytime on ABC. Don’t like this type of programing and it is exactly why I no longer watch Oprah either. I am done with daytime on ABC.

  49. Always hated her and what she did to “news” Now she has aided in the destruction of Soaps. I’m not watching her and I’m not watching ABC anymore.

  50. Pine Valley purloined, Llanview in limbo, and soon, Port Charles to be pulverized! All in the name of making a fast financial buck off trite trendiness that will end in the trash heap. Force-fed food shows, smarmy self-help artifice, and tiring talk talk talk banter will not silence righteously indignant, resourceful fans of scripted drama and creative storytelling!

  51. Well ABC just put the last nail in their coffin. Once GH is gone, so am I. AMC was cancelled, but I still watch (until Friday) One Life to Live and GH. Now I’ll watch GH until Sept., then ABC can have Katie Chew on the Revolution. Thanks, ABC, for ruining three “Daytime Dramas” that have been on for over four decades, two of which I’ve watched since day one. Now I won’t watch ANYTHING on ABC or Disney or any other ABC affiliate. Neither will I be taking grandkids to Disneyland or DisneyWorld. As a small-time gambler, I’ll bet the farm that NONE of the replacement shows will last a year, much less DECADES. Ta-Ta, Toodles, Adios, G’bye ABC. You sure have some real geniuses making daytime decisions (said, dripping with sarcasm). You apparently have no clue how loyal soap fans are. I hope you go belly-up sooner, rather than later.

  52. I have been a loyal fan for 25 years or more. I will not watch Katie and when GH is gone so will I be gone from ABC. I a im a stay at home first time mom who’s husband owns his own business. Apparently ABC doesn’t want my disposable income or my loyalty anymore. Bye bye ABC no #OLTL #AMC or #GH means zero abc for me.

  53. What in the crap is the matter with these people killing off these soaps. I never thought in a million years that my soaps would go off the air. I was hoping my 10 month old would grow up watching the soaps with me like I did with my mom. What a disgrace this is. I’m glad I’m going back to work in February. No mOre taping anything during the day.

  54. This makes me sick. ABC hired those 4 One Life to Live stars, having them move all the way to California (i hope they were honest and told these actors it’s just for a few months..) I think ABC is trying to get the fans off their backs by hiring these 4 fine actors.. We are not that stupid. Frank Valentini came over to GH, I hope he didn’t buy a house either. ABC has a habit of having people move across the country, and then laying them off after a year. I think the AMC cast and crew has a class action suit there, but that’s another story. I hope Mr. Valentini along with the four OLTL actors are not buying homes. This is beyond the pale ending GH this soon after the other two shows. I hope other will join me and no longer watch aBC. I hope some other entity, Bravo, Discovery,AMC movie channel, will decide to buy these soaps. Please buy these soaps, the millions of loyal soap fans will be loyal to whatever network buys our soaps and watch your other shows as well.

  55. I have been watching my “stories” for 30yrs now! Since I was 5 with my grandparents! I made memories with them! I can remember all my favorites by heart and was in labor when Emily got killed on GH! If I wanted real life I would watch the news! And I don’t! I have enough real life and now you have taken my friends away from me! The ones who have more problems then me! Who the heck cares about Katie Couric! How come we don’t have a People’s Choice Awards for daytime anymore? I can tell you that I will miss my stories! But NOT ABC! The only show I like besides my stories is Once Upon a Time! I’m so done with ABC and hope that another station takes it over one day. That you get deleted also! Cause the “people” HATE ABC now! And thats what you deserve:D

  56. Katie, sorry, you may think you’re America’s sweetheart, but taking this spot will make you persona non-grata to soap fans. They will never watch your show. Do you really think we need another daytime talk show? I am so upset with ABC, I will also not be watching anything on ABC. Not there there will be much left. My nighttime shows have all been canceled or are about to be. You’ll be very sorry Katie that you agreed to this time slot. And ABC the fans will be leaving you- but they won’t stop trying to save the soaps. Katie’s show will be going to the morgue very soon, and will not having anyone grieving for it. Not very good for her career. Meanwhile, people will be lamenting and missing our soaps forever- if we can’t revive them elsewhere.

  58. I will not watch Katie now or ever. I’m completely done with ABC. They are too arrogant to care what people actually want to watch and Katie is NOT one of them. Katie, the Spew, and “Revolution” will never be on my television and i hope they choke on their horrible ratings.

  59. FU ABC!! No one will watch her crappy show. She’s not worth the money and not worth loosing General Hospital over. None of these crappy replacement shows are worth loosing our soaps. If ABC doesn’t want to be in the soaps business they should give the rights to someone who does and let them live on somewhere else. What’s the point of bringing over characters from OLTL only to cancel GH???? I will never watch anything on ABC once GH is off the air :'( I have been watching for 20 years.

  60. UNREAL !!! If ANYONE HAS LEARNED ANYTHING, it’s DO NOT alianate the VERY few viewers ABC has left ! COME ON GUYS ! Learn from your mistakes ! WHY NOT put Katie on in WIPE-OUT’s time slot ! That’s the MOST ASSININE excuse for entertainment I’ve ever seen it ! REALLY, ABC…CAN YOU NOT BE TAUGHT ??? WTF?????????????

  61. I already started boycotting ABC except for the soap operas. With One LIfe to Live ending this Friday, I will only be watching General Hospital. When that ends… goodbye ABC. Hundreds of thousands of soap fans are now furious with ABC/Disney and are boycotting. Believe me, they’ll soon feel the pinch if they haven’t already. ABC is just GREEDY. The soaps were making money, but I guess not enough. They didn’t care at all about the fans who have been watching for 40 or more years. I’m disgusted with them. I hope a cable station might pick them up. I do miss some of the abc shows, like Greys Anatomy, Revenge, DWTS etc., but I miss my soaps more and will continue to boycott ABC until the soaps are aired somewhere.

  62. I hate people who are so full of them selves, Katie will not be a hit or will she ever.

    Soaps rule, I was a ABC viewer since Ryan’s Hope to Edge of Night and now you want to go and do reality. Shame on you.

    Hope your rating Blow!!!!!!!

  63. I guess I will watch General Hospital until it goes off in Sept. Then I will not ever watch abc/disney ever again. I hope all your new shows do not do well. I really don’t think they will. Channel 2 and 11 get my viewership since abc does not care about they viewers.. Bye abc

  64. Has ABC totally lost their freaking minds………I have not & will not watched The Spew, and will not watch The Regurtation, and will not watch this……..I will watch General Hospital till it goes off the air because 4 of the OLTL characters are going there, and when they take it off the air, I will switch networks to watch soaps there………And that’s a FACT!!!

  65. All I watch on ABC is OLTL; when that goes off, I will watch GH because they are taking 4 key players to their soap, albeit for a short period of time. Once GH goes off the air, I will no longer watch ABC. If NBC were smart, it would grab these 3 soaps and put them in their daytime line up. They wouldu rule daytime television if they did that. Or Oprah could save her OWN network by snatching up the rights to these shows. The viewership alone would bring people to her channel. It’s a shame that this genre is being put to bed to make room for more drivel. DOWN WITH ABC!

  66. I too will miss the soaps……all 3 of them. ABC & Disney has lost me as a watcher of any and ALL of their shows, As for Katie, I do like her but as someone getting a Colonoscopy!!!!

  67. ABC is cutting their own throat. Take a lesson from Netflix one bad decision can do irreversible damage. You are going to loose alot of viewer and gain angry annoying emails and letters.

  68. disgraceful to eliminate THREE soap operas within a few months of each other
    not one of the new shows will last…you are eliminating shows that had
    40 plus years of viewing to replace with yet another ‘how to’// when to and talk … talk shows . ABC will not be watched in our household; time to move on for us .. ABC should have known better……..

  69. I like Katie….but not enough for her to replace General Hospital!!!! Will NOT support ABC on ANY of their shows that they are replacing our SOAPS with.

    Boycott ABC7

  70. BOY!!! ABC!!! I REALLY DON’T YOU GET IT!!! YOU AREN’T GOING TO BE SATISFIED UNTIL YOU LOSE MOST — IF NOT ALL — OF YOUR DAYTIME VIEWERS!!!… HOW MANY TIME MUST WE TELL YOU THAT YOUR DAYTIME REPLACEMENTS ARE NOT GETTIN IT!!! THERE’S NOTHING ORIGINAL, UNIQUE OR INTERESTING ABOUT THESE BS SHOWS!!! IT’S SOOO OBVIOUS THAT THESE NEW FLOPS YOU CONSIDER SHOWS AREN’T DOING WELL!!! OTHERWISE, WHY WOULD YOU CONTINUE TO POUR “THE CHEW” ADS DOWN THE VIEWERS’ THROATS??!!!… MAYBE — WE VIEWERS — WILL HAVE TO SHOW YOU BETTER THAN WE CAN TELL YOU.

  71. UNREAL! They just announced today the addition of four actors from One Life to Live and cancel it at the same time!?!?!?! What is wrong with ABC? Do they really think Katie will our rate GH, OLTL or anything else???? Bad Decision ABC! You have total morons at the helm!

  72. Let’s just Luke, pushes this Today show has-been down the stairs and and throws her body on the jaged rocks below Spoon Island,

    btw i did’nt watch The Today Show untill Meredith Vieira came ‘casue i HATED KATIE

    so….

    ♪America’s NOT Watching ABC♪

  73. I WILL NOT BE WATCHING KATIE COURIC’S SHOW! The way ABC/Disney is killing our FABULOUS soaps is downright disgraceful. I do not watch The Spew (oops, The Chew), nor will I ever watch the show that is replacing my beloved One Life To Live. I do not watch ANYTHING on ABC except One Life To Live and General Hospital. And, once GH is gone, I will be gone as well. The executives at ABC/Disney should be ashamed of themselves for what they have done to hundreds of people who worked so hard to bring loyal viewers THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT ON TELEVISION. Walt Disney is probably turning over in his grave right now because of the way his empire is being run. He was a truly great man. Too bad no one can say that about ANY of the people who run ABC/Disney now. With a “friend” like ABC/Disney, people certainly don’t need any enemies. I believe they are going to rue the day they killed our beloved soaps. They say payback is hell, and one day KARMA is going to come back and bite ABC/Disney in the butt. And, for me, that day can’t come soon enough!

I believe they are going to rue the day they killed our beloved soaps. They say payback is hell, and one day KARMA is going to come back and bite ABC/Disney in the butt. And, for me, that day can’t come soon enough!

  75. Goodbye ABC. I too have watched OLTL and GH since I had my babies 30 yrs ago. Can’t stand KC, and won’t watch one minute of her. I guess ABC just added more hours to my day, that’s all.

  76. Sorry, but I have to disagree Roger. This show is not going to be a hit.
    People watched the Today show because it was the Today show not because KC was on it. Proof is nobody stopped watching when she left and they sure didn’t start watching the CBS news when she took over. What a collasal waste of $20mil a year for ABC! She is a lightweight tv host not a journalist-There will be nothing new to see here.

  77. My loyalty is with the soaps. I have been a 30+years watcher of G.H. so I’m not switching to Katie. Did not watch her on today, nor CBS news so why start now.
