ABC Official Annoucement on Good Afternoon America Daytime Summer Replacement Series!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

I am sure we were all envisioning a day when One Life to Live is back on the airwaves, in our heart of hearts.  But soap fans and viewers won’t be seeing that on ABC.   First, audiences had to deal with the OLTL’s disastrous replacement, The Revolution, which in turn was canned by the network because of horrendous ratings.  And now it is being replaced for the summer by the previously announced GMA in the Afternoon series.   So today, ABC made it official with a press release with details about the summer series.

Here’s the info:   “Beginning Monday, July 9, ABC News will air a one-hour extension of  Good Morning America for nine weeks entitled Good Afternoon America.  The program will be anchored by “GMA’s” Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer, with Sam Champion, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos joining in with special appearances. The energetic, fast-paced program will feature the most-talked about celebrities, performances by the biggest names in the music industry, the latest pop culture news, plus original entertainment, lifestyle, health, workplace and consumer reporting from an all-star list of contributors and other members of the ABC family.

“It’s tremendous that ‘GMA’ has this opportunity to extend its reach and bring something new to the afternoons,” said co-anchor Josh Elliott. “It is gratifying to play a role in it, and we genuinely hope our audience will come along for the ride.” Co-anchor Lara Spencer added: “I am beyond excited and honored to be part of this new chapter for the Good Morning America family.  Good Afternoon America gives us the opportunity to reach a different audience, and better yet, to spend a little more time with our morning viewers who want to be a part of the conversation and fun we plan on bringing to afternoon TV.  Good Afternoon America will air from 2:00-3:00 p.m., ET and will be taped at “GMA’s” studio at the crossroads of the world, the heart of Times Square.”

All we can say soapers is make sure to keep watching General Hospital!  We know many of your have read rumors on certain message boards, that there is  some concern that an alternate plan in the works that could nix GH in the future to make way for Good Afternoon America.  The point here is:  if only ABC would have left OLTL on,  GH would have had an appropriate lead-in. And point two, if GMA can be a better lead-in for GH, it should help their ratings, but will it give the suits other ideas?  The jury is out!   So what do you think about Good Afternoon America?  Will you tune-in?

I promise GMA will have no viewers and here the hell we go again. What is going to happen when GMA has nothing? I am so sick of ABC.

If GMA has nothing, then GH should replace it, followed by Katie. Then we boycott Katie and she fails. It’s either soaps in the afternoon or nothing.

Me too all soap fans. No one is going to watch GMA in the afternoon. They will probably have even lower ratings than the Revoltion!!! We want our soaps back not some stupid cheap substitutes that no one wants and no one watches! We want our daytime afternoon line up back that we have had for decades AMC, OLTL, and GH in that order. If they want to put Katie on at 4 pm that is the only way she will get any lead in ratings! Just because GMA in the afternoon doesn’t have an audience does not mean GH… Read more »

ditto – me too! I wrote a couple emails to my local ABC affliate asking them to please keep GH on in the fall – got an General Hospital newsletter from about.com which gave all the address. Guess ABC was having meetings with the affiliates yesterday and today asking if they’d like to have an hour of GH or GMA in the afternoon for the fall lineup… yes, here we go again! I don’t watch GMA in the morning and hell no, not going to watch it in the afternoon. ABC is just all the same kind of programming all… Read more »

You know we fought a good fight and got abc/disney to keep our general hospital, One of the head people at abc said let the best show win, well the revolution was cancelled, now their lying their replacing that stupid show for another waste of time show. I’m glad I continued to boycott abc because I want one life to live back I know that’s not going to happen and I hate to say this but I believe all this back stabbing abc/disney has done to us soap fans never stopped when gh was renewed their lying to shut us… Read more »

ABC doesn’t care how good the ratings are, if they plan on cancelling GH , they will! OLTL had great ratings & it’s gone! If GH makes it to next year it will be a miracle! They don’t want any soaps! And I can’t stand Lara Spencer either!

barbara t
Guest
barbara t

Lipstickcat, I believe you are right. I can’t stand lara spencer either. abc sure trashed their day time line up. When and if they cancel general hospital there will never be any reason to watch their news, talk, celebrity filled afternoons I hate shows like that, I love my soaps.

I don’t get it either, Why people watch the chew, even the name is dumb, I can’t see any woman wanting to watch those idiots making food and talking stupid uninteresting crap for a long hour, Boring. I want drama, I want our soaps.

david
Guest
david

Agree with your comment below about The Chew. The success of The Chew undermines the soaps. It leads executives to think people will watch any cheap crap. If The Chew had crashed like The Revolution, GH would be safe. The Chew should choke on itself and die. Only soaps after 12 pm or nothing.

bert

i agree. lets boycott the chew and good afternoon america. i really love duets and revenge but nothing else at night on ABC. If they can GH, I will give up duets and revenge until they bring back an afternoon soap.

No matter who or what ABC airs, they will never take the place of a 75 yr old genre!!!! Like replacing “Children”, there is no substitute! I think the only reason the stars are taking jobs on new shows is for a paycheck since you destroyed their life and their steady income with no concern for anyone or anything but the ABC financial dept. GIVE AGNES BACK HER SHOWS, so someone else can jack their stations ratings and we will even help promote and sponsor the sponsors products!!!!!

I am VERY AFRAID of this show! One one hand if it’s got good ratins and is a good lead-in for GH, then this could mean the good ratings would make affiliates want to pick it up rather than GH come fall. ANYTHING ABC programs in the afternoon I will not watch, except General Hospital. I am way too afraid for my soap to give legs to anything else, and so should everyone! Do NOT watch GMA, it’s a trap!

Seriously, We are screwed, In september when they put that katie show on what happens to general hospital? Abc/disney is going to get rid of it their messing with the soap fans again, That’s why they only renewed it for one year, So they can cancel in 6 months, I hate to say this but I said don’t trust abc and I was right. I say we boycott this garbage cheep news show we continue the boycott watch general hospital we have to get the ratings up even higher don’t think the lead in matters the mouse kingdoms mind is… Read more »

WELL..the public spoke and told ABC We do not like the “REVOLUTION”. it was cancelled.. so apparently the PUBLIC better get their feelings made clear and tell them WE DONT LIKE ANOTHER DAYTIME TALK SHOW either. RATINGS are the only thing that really SPEAK to the powers that be at ABC.

In a word, “No”. I have no interest in this new program. I am one of those OLTL fans who refuse to watch anything on ABC anymore. I have no need for any ABC programming since they took OLTL off the air.

I think we all better boycott GA America, just like we were boycotting the Revolution And the Chew! ABC needs to see by ratings that these kind of shows are Not going to get the ratings that our Beloved One Life To Live did!!! And this will also help to keep GH on! If ratings for GA America are good ABC will just want to can GH!

Heather
Guest

You don’t need to be a genius to figure out that Good Afternoon America is more than just a summer replacement. It is an actual test to become GH’s replacement. If this thing gets ratings similar to The Chew and The Talk, you can kiss GH goodbye. That’s why it’s imperative for all soap opera fans to strongly boycott this thing, while strongly supporting GH.

barbara t
Guest
barbara t

That’s exactly what it is, that’s why we have to do to good afternoon america what we did to the revolution. I knew abc was playing head games with us soap fans that’s why I never backed off the 3 emails a day to abc and I will not watch anything on abc/disney except General hospital.

lipstickcat

Why are people watching The Chew? It’s a horrible, disgusting show! The Revolution is going but The Chew lives on! Why? Unfortunately, ABC is just using GH as a filler until they find some garbage nobody wants to put on in it’s place. It will be lucky to make it to next year.

barbara t, I have SOMEWHAT felt bad for the folks at The Revolution when their show was cancelled because they probably didn’t know that they were going to replace a soap opera when they took their job at The Revolution. But I have no sympathy whatsoever for Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer. They both are very well aware that GAA is set to kill to GH. Elliott and Spencer each make huge salaries a year and it makes me sick that they want more, all this at the expense of a soap that has aired for nearly 50 years. I… Read more »

Can’t think of anything worse than Good Afternoon Amercia, except maybe the Chew. Agree it is absolutely the worst show ever-horrible, embarrassing. I don’t feel bad for the Revolution people-that show is almost as bad as the Chew. None of them deserve to be on tv at all.

Afternoons are for SOAPS period.

I can most assuredly tell you and everyone within the ABC network that I will not be watching
GMA either in the morning or afternoon, or Katie Couric or any program that is
broadcasted by ABC other than General Hospital. I will continue to boycott 100% and I know I speak for many, many loyal fans of the soap opera genrue. The Repulsion Revolution didn’t last longer then two hoots in the holler and I guarantee nothing you add to the line up besides OLTL and AMC and GH will make it either!

Probably not. If I’m awake when I get off night shifts I don’t watch GMA, I watch CTV’s CanadaAM show.

Soapwise, I catch B&B (for Crystal’s storyline) via the CTV iPad/iPhone app, and GH via YT b/c CTV no longer carries GH – and we can’t stream the ABC iPad/iPhone app in Canada, nor the ABC website streaming (thanks to geoblocking). No working DVR/PVR atm.

Seriously I dont think we ever won the first battle. Abc/disney was trying to keep us quiet while they planned a new way to attack the soap fans. They gave General hospital 1 year that’s nothing if they were committed to keeping it in their daytime line up they would have renewed for a longer time. The boycott continues, we watch general hospital nothing else. What we did to the revolution we do to good afternoon america. HERE WE GO AGAIN.

Christine

You are probably right. After the Tivo debacle and everything else I have witnessed, I am just disgusted with the ABC network. It’s just sickening. I don’t trust them at all. They probably will cancel GH by September or December. They make me so mad.

“I am sure we were all envisioning a day when One Life to Live is back on the airwaves, in our heart of hearts.” You got that right, Michael!

I will NOT watch GMA PM. It does NOT “bring something new to the afternoons.” It’s the same, repetitive talk about celebrities and other trendy, useless crap. Let this show fail. Let Katie fail. Except for GH, let everything fail in the afternoons on ABC until some form of OLTL returns somewhere.

GH is going to need to keep stepping it up, just because Revo was cancelled and GAA is “supposedly” only 9 weeks doesn’t mean ABC won’t get rid of GH if GAA shows even the slightest hinge of success.

OOOOH! Can’t wait not to watch. How boring-I quit watching GMA years ago-it has gotten so “celebrity” driven, same thing with the Weather Channel. By that I mean the anchors/hosts act like it is their show-so cutesy/flirty/funny-NOT. Everyone wants to be a celebrity. They forget what they are supposed to be doing-providing info. not the silly antics they have come up with.

Entertainment used to be provided by television dramas/comedies-NOT “reality” crap and 4-5 hrs a day of GMA/Today Show. God. Something get a clue & revive our soaps.

Since One Life to Live was canceled, the only ABC show I watch is General Hospital I even gave up my prime time favorite Modern Family. I loved Lara Spencer on Antiques Road Show but , I will not watch the new show. The only Spencers I care about are on General Hospital. I am still lost at two O’clock but , I will not watch One Life to Live’s replacements.

Michael,
I have yet to find an ABC press release that announced GH’s renewal. It has been reported in the media when the Rev was cancelled, but ABC has made no official announcement re GH. That has made me suspicious of their direction. Do you know of any official ABC announcement on their plans for GH?
Thank you, MBmom

It’s ABC’s show so it is not a “renewal.” They are just deciding not to cancel it … just yet. It is very suspicious, isn’t it?

MBmomof3

Thanks. That does make sense. But you’d think if they planned for the show to make it to their 50th anniversary they would try to get a little press for it. How many shows make it to 50?! I wish I ran ABC/D 🙂 or at least their PR Dept.

You would ABC caught a clue based on their failed lifestyle shows they produced to “save money”. How is it saving money when you lose more money cancelling a show that viewers clearly didn’t want. GMA in the afternoon will suffer the same fate as the show that was cancelled when it replaced an iconic show. Yup ABC truly does not want people watching their network. Their attitude is we need to get over it, we will just as we will get over not watching their crappy shows. Karma is the bitch that Erica Kane raised it to be!

The success of The Chew hasn’t helped the soaps. If The Chew had failed as badly as The Revolution, GH would be safe. The Chew needs to fail too. Only soaps after 12 pm or nothing. If ABC is going to broadcast garbage, they might as well broadcast nothing and save money. After the failure of The Revolution and the loss of OLTL, the idea of GAA is insulting and offensive.

I don’t watch either network morning news show, and I won’t watch this in the afternoon. How much news can possibly reported?

I completely agree. I was a lifelong fan of GL & ATWT and I just cried at the loss of “my” shows; I didn’t speak out. I think ABC got a rude awakening after the slaughter of OLTL. They lost over a million viewers over the course of a weekend. Yup, you’d better believe in this economic climate, corporate America has people watching that stuff. Whether they were selling tampons, diapers, cat food, detergent, or cereal; someone was pissed off at the loss of the 2:00 pm (est) viewers.

I still can’t believe my soaps have been replaced by this cheap, “blah, blah, blah” junk. I don’t even watch my ABC affilliate news or programming because of this direction. And I let them know it.

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

General Hospital Shifts Production Restart Date

On Friday, ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital has now determined to push back their production restart date given the escalating number of cases of the coronavirus as the pandemic has worsened in Los Angles County.

According to Deadline: “GH is now targeting the week of July 20 to resume taping. The situation remains fluid as new infections have been soaring in Los Angeles.”

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
