Disney-ABC Officially Cancels KATIE! Talk Show To End After Two Seasons!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

The ax has finally fallen on Katie Couric’s afternoon talker, Katie!  Soap fans can now have some retribution that 2/3 of all the replacements that ABC, or the Disney/ABC Syndication wing came up with to rebrand their daytime lineup, that saw iconic soap operas, All My Children and One Life to Live cancelled, and General Hospital moved to a new time slot to  acommadate Katie going into their original timeslot in television markets around the country, has all but failed.  The only show to survive this is The Chew!  The Revolution and now Katie have tanked!

According to an official press release today from Disney/ABC and Katie Couric, “While production will continue on Katie through June 2014, we’ve mutually agreed that there will not be a third season of the show. We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the #1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-2013, and we look forward to the rest of the season.”

Couric was expected to give the news to the show’s staff after today’s taping, the last before the scheduled holiday break until January!  Seems like a lot of major changes happens in the final week before Christmas in the daytime biz!  For months, we have been reporting that the cancellation was imminent and now Disney/ABC pulled the trigger!

At present time there is  no replacement for Katie.  Disney/ABC is working on finding something to put in the talker’s place, having recently hired syndication executive Lisa Hackner!  The big hurdle there is if the syndication arm  can mount a new production that fast!  ABC found it continually hard to make Couric’s show economically feasible because of its cost, even with a budget reduction.   ABC stations have already been reportedly exploring local newscasts to replace the talk show next fall, with other programming acquisitions as an option to newscasts!  Starting in January, Couric will do Katie along with her duties under her new deal with Yahoo. After Katie ends in May, she will focus on Yahoo while looking for opportunities in TV!

So, what do you say soap fans?  Are you happy Katie is going to be a-goner? Or, will you miss her talk show? Let us know!

I can’t believe her talk show lasted this long. Katie does well with an ensemble cast. Being on her own just shows how phony she is.

ABC should now learn from their mistakes that cancelling the soaps was one bad idea. They should put OLTL and AMC on in half hour slots and their numbers would soar.
I am shocked The Chew has lasted longer than Katie.

Sorry to crash the party but Katie’s cancellation won’t bring back AMC and OLTL. First, her show was syndicated so her cancellation has no impact on AMC and OLTL. Secondly, even if her talk show had been a network show, chances are ABC would have replaced it with another talk show instead of a soap opera. Thirdly, her show wasn’t cancelled because of low ratings but rather because her contract was too expansive. If her contract had been cheaper with the same ratings, the show wouldn’t have been cancelled. Sorry if my post may offend some, but I’m just being… Read more »

Janet, this may have been a “syndicated” show, but it was produced by ABC/Disney and shown primarily on ABC stations. So, ABC is who needs to come up with something to fill that time slot.

Janet
Guest
Janet

SZima, ABC doesn’t necessarily need to find a replacement to Katie because her show was syndicated. They may leave the show with no replacement as they did when they cancelled The Tony Danza Show a couple of years ago. I don’t know why everyone thinks that Katie had a timeslot. In my market, Katie aired on the NBC station and she didn’t even aired at 3:00pm. She aired at 4:00pm. On my ABC station, it’s Ricki Lake that aired at 3:00pm last year. Now that Ricki Lake has been cancelled, it’s another lame talk show that is airing after GH… Read more »

I am with you, Max, I don’t watch anything in the afternoon BUT GH. I meant it when I said I would boycott any shows that replace AMC & OLTL. It is now time to bring them back, and get your high ratings for those shows, or even combined them for an hour each day. What ABC did was so wrong in every way. All of their talk about people wanting more reality type shows proved them WRONG at every angle and how long is “The Chew” going to last???

Harry

Katie’s Talk Show didn’t really interfere with General Hosp here in Orlando, Fl, as her show was broadcast on NBC at 2:00pm while GH was shown on ABC at 2:00pm. Of course, when Katie was first brought to TV, General Hosp was moved from it’s original 3:00pm time slot which did not make GH’s longtime fans very happy. I personally am now used to watching GH at 2:00pm and hope the ABC network doesn’t change It back to 3:00pm……but I could learn to live with it!!!! I never watched Katie’s Talk Show but wish her all the best!!!!

Harry

I am thinking that The View should be cancelled next due to its abysmal ratings and its horrible co hosts. Barbara Falters has lost it and Dumber and Dumber (Sheri and Jenny) are intolerable. Whoopi is the only sane one on the panel and she looks like she wants to jump out of her skin

I totally agree. Of course, with ABC legal issues with PP I highly doubt we would see OLTL or AMC return to the daytime line-up. I am a OLTL fan, but I want AMC fans to have their show too. I wish ABC could admit their mistake, resolve their issues with PP, and put both shows on for a half hour.

As of now, I only watch GH. Never have and never will watch the chew. The Revolution and Katie fell victim to cancellation and it will continue to happen.

Harry

Yes, for sure and then cancel The Chew and bring back AMC! I am giving up on both GH and Y&R so I need a decent soap to watch.

Talk about Drama….This shows the research arm of ABC, the focus groups and anyone else who had the opinion that Daytime Dramas were no longer viable really didn’t know what they were talking about. Had ABC left their daytime dramas intact and simply brought in capable writers the shows would have flourished, both financially and in the ratings. ABC has found out the hard way–at the expense of fan loyalty and several millions of dollars that cheaper/less expensive programming via talk shows obviously do not hold a candle to daytime dramas.

Katie was syndicated, locally it was on NBC. From what I read the ratings were decent but the production cost was very high due to the ridiculous contract Katie was given. Ratings not high enough to justify the cost of the show. I’m not a Katie fan but I watched her show here and there if she had a good guest. It was decent but not great. However people need to stop thinking their soaps are coming back. It ain’t happening folks. Meredith Viera will be the next show on the syndicated circuit and local stations will pick up her… Read more »

It is a shame Katie has been cancelled. She provided one of the most intelligent talk shows on the air. I am a huge soap fan and would love to see AMC and/or OLTL come back, even if they could do only half hour shows. Katie spent more time on topics, allowing a more in-depth discussion of important issues. I will be sad to see her go.

Awesome Christmas present for us AMC/OLTL fans. The news of her tanking. Any chance of them getting smart and putting OLTL back on air. Unfortunately AMC cast have moved on but I bet they can get some of the cast back from OLTL. Some AMC cast can be moved to OLTL. Get smart ABC/Disney. They pulled Soapnet already, I thought that was suppose to air until 12/31/13.

I am very glad that they finally got rid of Katie. Next they need to get rid of The View and the Chew. They both are bad. There are to many talk shows on. Now on to the soaps. ABC should bring back AMC and OLTL. They can buy back the rights from PP use 2 different studios make them both half hour shows. That way it would save ABC money. It might bring up their ratings for daytime. Also, I am not happy about Soapnet being taking off for good. Disney has just thrown us under the bus. There… Read more »

Soap fans have a lifelong loyalty to their stories and the tv families that theyhave embraced. We will not be told that talk shows or local news shows are what we want…. The olny thing that wll bring back the viewers is SOAPS – daytime drama (scripted – not phony reality nonsense).

Well, it seems to be unanimous, her boring talk show is cancelled and no one gives a rat’s tail about it. ABC-TV ought to settle things with Prospect Park and put back ALL MY CHILDREN combined with ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Have the residents of Pine Valley and nearby Landview intermingle. They don’t have to have two full hour soaps, in addition to Gen. Hospital, but they could trim them down for budget reasons…It will work, fans will watch – but unfortunately it probably won’t happen anytime soon. We could all write to ABC-TV and suggest it, it wouldn’t hurt.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
