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.

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.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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

‘Port Charles’ Star Jay Pickett Dead at 60

UPDATED:  Just heartbreaking news over the weekend.  Former Port Charles star and soap veteran, Jay Pickett died suddenly while filming a movie.  His cause of death was not immediately known, although in a post on Sunday from Travis Mills it appears to have been from a heart attack. Pickett was 60-years-old.  On Sunday, former co-stars have shared their remembrances while mourning Jay including Michael Easton, Kelly Monaco, Michael Dietz, Marie Wilson, Kin Shriner and more.

In addition to his most remembered role on daytime as Frank Scanlon on the GH spinoff, Port Charles, where he appeared in over 762 episodes, Pickett also appeared on GH replacing Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and came back to the show in 2006-07 in the recurring role of Detective David Harper.  Jay also spent time on Days of our Lives as Dr. Chip Lakin and appeared on primetime’s Desperate Housewives and Queen Sugar countless other TV series and films.

Word of Pickett’s death first came via Facebook from Jim Heffel who is the film’s co-producer, who shared along with these images (see below): “Yesterday I lost a good friend and the world lost a great person. Jay Pickett decided to ride off into the Heavens. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also coproducer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner.”

Michael Dietz, who played Pickett’s on-screen brother, Joe Scanlon on Port Charles shared his grief on the news on Facebook, expressing: “My greatest friend has sadly left this world. We met when we were cast as brothers on Port Charles many, many years ago. He played my big brother on TV but that carried over into real life and an amazing friendship that was one of a kind. He was an incredible husband, father, friend, and godfather to my daughter. Everyone that knew him loved him. I love you, Jay. Keep smiling my friend. All my love to his family, who truly became our family as well. You will be forever missed.”

Kin Shriner (Scott, GH) and Jay’s former co-star at Port Charles shared: “The sudden passing of my pal Jay Pickett Is very sad . He loved acting and Westerns , and when we got together we laughed a lot . R.I.P. Jay”

Kelly Monaco (Ex-Livvie, PC and now Sam, GH) shared on her Instagram:  “My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jay Pickett. If you knew him, you loved him. Words can’t describe…”

Michael Easton (Ex-Caleb/Michael PC, and now Finn on GH) expressed: “Mourning the loss of our friend and colleague. I first met Jay in Margie Haber’s acting class in the late 80’s and was fortunate to get to work with him many times over the next thirty years. He was a wonderful actor but an even better person. My deepest condolences to his wife and his children, his friends and all of his fans. Rest in peace, Brother.”

Marie Wilson (Ex-Karen, Port Charles) shared: “This is one of the most difficult posts I’ve done. My heart is broken to hear that this incredible person has passed. Words cannot described how much you touched my life….your friendship, advice, and support made me feel so grateful and lucky. My first day on the set was with us having a water fight ….and the fun adventures continued from there. So happy to have shared all those moments with you. I will miss you my friend!”

Travis Mills from the film Treasure Valley, in which Pickett was filming at the time of his death, shared on Sunday morning this updated message on Facebook: “Many of you have already heard about the tragedy that happened two days ago. Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack. Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.  As so many of us know, Jay was an incredible man. He was kind, sweet, and generous. He was one of the best actors I ever worked with and it was an honor to collaborate with him. Everyone who met him, even for the briefest moment, could feel his warmth, his wonderful spirit. It is difficult to find the words right now to say more. His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”

Jay is survived by his wife, Elena, and their three children, Maegan, Michaela and Tyler.

We will have more on this continuing story as remembrances for Pickett are shared, and updated on news of his passing.
