Haines posted on her social media accounts: “Ahhhhhh! Not even sure I can find the words to adequately express how excited I am to sit next to @MichaelStrahan as we embark on a new journey at GMA #GMADay… it is (and has been) a dream of mine for a LONG time.”

The program, which was previously announced as the replacement for The Chew, will air at 1 p.m. ET | 12 p.m. CT/PT.  Share your thoughts on the upcoming GMA Day via the comment section below.

I don’t care at all. I don’t watch GMA or The View or The Chew.

Why? Would rather have All My Children or One life to live back to where they belong. Even if it meant just one of them or half hour of each.

Really?!! Michael and Kelly Double, part deux!!!??? Puleeeeese! AMC and OLTL better use of time and interest. Does ABC not realize people are not home to watch this live and will not DVR it or watch it on demand. But Soaps people WILL dvr and watch on demand!!! so soaps are a bit more expensive, but worth it or network now that dvr-d shows are added to ratings. bad move ABC!!!

Great. More phony repartee and endless rehashing of news. Sooo much better than a classic, vintage daytime drama with millions of built-in fans. So glad people are actually PAID to program these things.

I am sorry but I will not be watching ABC GMA. I don’t like Good Morning America. So too many of us Soaps Fans will be boycotting ABC with the exception of GH. Enough Talkers! Talk is cheap! Talk and Reality show are day to day boring.

Didn’t ABC try this already a few years back&it was not successful?
Perhaps they think it will work better with different cohosts.
Time will surely tell.

When Regis left, I quit watching Regis and Kelly because of Strahan! THEN, he shows up on ABC, EVERYWHERE! I tune out! Whats next, AGENT STRAHAN from the DVX? UGGG!

Timmm…I remember when Michael teamed up with Kelly. He just seemed to ambitious and agressive to me. And there was some talk about when he moved to GMA that Kelly was blindsided. So to Sarah Haines who seems nice enough…watch your back.

Oh, and by the way, I’m not interested in another talk show.

Paula Oandasan

No need for another talk show on that network…already has today, meghan, hoda and kathie lee

Really unnecessary programming. Exists only to extend the GMA brand into another network day part. Honestly not sure what a third hour will bring new, and I sense repeat or reformulated fare from the morning. Selection of hosts do not suggest hard news. Daytime is a viable program element. Seems broadcast just cannot figure out what to do with it in a post-serial drama era.

Why in God’s name do we need another hour of news? We have morning news on all networks, plus CNN, MSNBC, and Fox. What are they going to do? Rehash the morning stuff?? How about a retro hour of ABC soaps? Greatest storylines from AMC, OLTL, Ryan’s Hope, Dynasty??? A short lead in from the actors catching us up.

Great idea of a reto hour, or even repeat eras that are found on youtube. Plus the programming is already paid for.

Boycott of ABC is getting easier and easier. Strahan…BLEH, Haines….BLEH. The View is unwatchable, The Chew was vomit-inducing, as is Strahan. They’ve also ruined DWTS. Bring back All My Children, then we can talk.

This is just another experiment by the network to see how much advertising revenue and the desired demographic they can pull in in lieu of faltering ratings and supposed less advertising revenue had by soaps.

Better hope it doesn’t do really well or this new hour will lead into a second as it wipes GH off the ABC map.

I decided to revisit this thread and read all the comments, virtually all of which are negative. Sara Haines got a couple of positive remarks, but Michael Strahan and ABC were roundly skewered. This is telling…

My husband and I are both HUGE fans of The Chew and we are not at all happy that it was shoved out of the line up for yet another hour of GMA. We have never watched GMA in the morning so why would we would watch it in the afternoon? The Chew was a really fun break from all the news programs and reality tv shows & we thoroughly enjoyed it! I’m sure the many Chew fans feel the same way we feel…which is HUGELY disappointed! I think ABC has made a poor decision. Perhaps GMA Day will fail once again and they’ll bring back The Chew…not to sound like a spoiled brat or anything!

Like Michael and Sarah hate the same ole talk show junk. People hawking book, movies and music. We didn’t need another Kelly and Ryan Hoda and Kathy. I can f believe you traded the Chew for this. I won’t be watching. Tired old format. I can do better with my time

Ray

Show is so boring to watch. Can’t believe they cancelled the Chew for this boring show. I don’t like it. It’s Capital “B” boring. Hope it goes off the air soon.
