Is ABC considering swapping GH with "The View's" AM Timeslot?

In a new article out today in the Los Angeles Times, there are ongoing discussions by ABC to possibly move The View to the afternoon slot currently held by General Hospital when the Oprah Winfrey Show ends its run this coming September.  Here are few excerpts which are troubling for the state of the daytime genre, once again.

“Another option, although less likely, would be for ABC would be to swap The View with General Hospital, which typically airs at 3 p.m. on most of its stations. The risk there is that General Hospital has been running in the afternoon forever and a move to late mornings could severely hurt the show, which is one of the few remaining soap operas.”

“ABC is also studying whether to try to turn The View into a syndicated show. That would mean selling it to individual stations for cash and commercial inventory. ABC affiliates might get upset by the idea of losing the show to the highest bidder, although there is a potential of bigger bucks for ABC and parent Walt Disney Co. The plus side of turning The View into a syndicated show or moving it as a network show is that late afternoon shows have potential to earn more money than shows that run in the morning.

The dangers in all this are fairly obvious. The View is working at a mid-morning chat show. It averages about 4 million viewers and of those, more than 1 million are women 25-54. Winfrey gets a bigger audience and it seems unlikely that The View would grow a whole lot more running in the afternoon. ABC could end up damaging a successful franchise. If it also moved General Hospital as well, it could jeopardize two shows.”

Would anyone tune into GH if its moved to 10AM or 11AM depending on your time zone?

A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

ABC and General Hospital released a promo for the week of December 9th which features Franco (Roger Howarth) undergoing the mind-mapping reversal procedure that would restore his memory from that of Drew Cain’s back to Franco Baldwin.

But, as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is trying to stop Dr. Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) from performing the procedure on Franco by ordering a hit on him.

In the promo, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hersbt) waits by her husband’s side hoping he will return to her and remember the love they share.  As well,  Cameron (William Lipton) prays with her that Franco will come back to them so they can be a family again in time for the holiday season.

Watch the teaser below.

Then, let us know if you are hoping Franco returns and that he is no longer Drew Cain in the comment section, or are you hoping for a different procedural outcome when he wakes up?

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
