Katie Couric Falling From Grace With ABC News And Talk Show! Yahoo Next Stop?

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

It will be some small satisfaction for soap opera fans knowing that the Katie Couric initiative with ABC is completely becoming unhinged! First, as we have reported multiple times through multiple sources her talker, Katie, has all but been written-off by Disney/ABC even before it had finished its first season in the spring.

Now Variety is reporting, that Couric is also headed for an exit from ABC News, negotiating an early end to the “special correspondent” deal that came with her talk show agreement back in 2011.

The entertainment/business news source related, “Couric is poised to shift to a programming deal with Yahoo, which will keep her visible in media circles but nonetheless marks a remarkable fall from grace for the anchor who was once at the top of the TV journo pack. She joined the Disney-ABC fold in mid-2011 after a tumultuous tenure as the anchor of the CBS Evening News.

“There’s been speculation in recent weeks that Couric might not complete her second season of the talker now that it’s become clear her station affiliates, including the core ABC O&O group, are hunting for replacement shows starting in fall 2014. Disney reps, however, have tamped down that speculation. If nothing else, Couric’s hefty eight-figure paycheck is incentive for her to complete the two-year term of her daytime show contract.”

Variety goes on to elaborate on how the departure of The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the beloved soaps All My Children and One Life to Live, with putting Katie into the lineup was an abysmal flop : “Winfrey’s retirement, followed a year later by Couric’s arrival, coincided with ABC’s strategic decision to cancel the network’s long-running soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live. ABC O&O and affiliate stations in many markets have been walloped by the disruptions, which also undoubtedly fueled the anti-Couric sentiment.”

So, what do you think about Couric’s fall from ABC?  What do you think about her locking in a new deal with Yahoo?  And what do you think about how almost 2/3 of supposedly reinvigorated daytime line-up that included The Revolution and Katie,  did not capture the daytime audience?   Weigh-in!

Thank you. This made my night knowing she and the Revolution fell flat on their face. Bye bye and don’t let the door hit you you know where. Please bring back our soaps.

ABC should swallow their pride, admit their mistake and bring back AMC and OLTL at least as 30 minute shows. If they want to keep The Chew at 1:00pm, so be it. But cancel Katie, put AMC and OLTL at 2:00pm and move GH back at 3:00pm.

Yes, PLEASE ! Bring back AMC and OLTL. I like Katie, but she should have stayed with Matt. Actually, she should replace Matt Lauer now that he has fallen from grace.

It’s still a pity that TPTB are so incredibly short sighted that they won’t see the best solution for ratings: bring back OLTL and AMC. It’s so simple!

Arguably Days of Our Lives or Bold and Beautiful deserve to die before AMC and OLTL. AT the very least Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser and Susan Lucci deserve to leave tv when they wanted and not have Tony Geary or Eric Braeden reign – neither who have much class, tact or anything! Not sure Deidre Hall deserves a show either. ironically Slezak, Strasser and Lucci are the few soap legends who have stayed true to soaps. Everyone else for the most part tried their hand on becoming a “big” star. These ladies treaed soaps with respect.

This whole thread is pointless. Because no matters how fans rejoice about Katie’s failure, this doesn’t change the fact that ABC will never revive AMC and OLTL. Period. ABC will just replace the cancelled talk shows with other talk shows.

I’m not saying this to be harsh. I’m just being realistic. Falling talk shows won’t change ABC’s decision regarding AMC and OLTL.

Why should soap fans re-joice in her failure? She isn’t the reason “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” are gone.

1) THE CHEW
2) THE REVOLUTION

Those two shows are to blame, not Couric. She doesn’t even air on ABC in 50% of the markets throughout the nation.

Soap fans can be so insane.

Soap fans can rejoice! Kate’s failure and GH’s success proves that ABC viewers want soaps in the afternoon. There is a chance for OLTL and AMC to return.

She may not air on ABC in every market, but she airs on the ABC stations that count. And it is those top ABC local station managers that forced her out! They need a good lead-in to local news and Couric is not it.

JOSHUA JOSHUA JOSHEWA…Simply put she sucks. She’s boring. The Sara Palin interview with 60 Minutes should have been enough to make ABC shy away from her. I have absolutely no idea where ANY network got the idea this lady was a valuable commodity. She NEVER has been and NEVER will be. As for the other daytime alternatives it was all left up in the hands of Daytime execs for Disney. They would rather see a show where Ariel interviews Mickey,Minnie,and Donald. It’s Disney. They think everybody wants to view Rainbows and Unicorns rather than deal with reality. SO THERE YOU… Read more »

I don’t have anything against Katie Couric.. I like her, it’s just that I want to see everything on ABC’s Daytime/Afternoon schedule FAIL.. save GH! I want everything that goes into AMC’s or OLTL’s timeslots to fail, those shows should have never been cancelled.. a crime, plain and simple. The Chew has held on, but I suspect it will soon fall as well. ABC should admit they’re wrong, bring those shows back or see everything in daytime fall.

No surprise. Nobody cares about Yahoo anymore, it’s a year or so away from being bought out or going bust. What can you say good about Tim Gunn, Ty Pennington, and the rest? It rarely happens that the most annoying people on TV are on the same show. And Katie? She almost single handedly killed the CBS news. I have said ever since ABC announced cancelling OLTL AMC that the key was the local affiliates and their annual meeting with ABC execs. They are the only group which has the power, outside the Disney board of directors, to fix this… Read more »

You are so correct about the potential power of the affiliates. They need an audience in their markets. Since the almighty alphabet network isn’t help generate one, the affiliates should yell bloody murder.

Sam
Guest
Sam

Thanks for the support. Having been on the inside I have seen how this works. Local affiliates are separate companies from the network. The sell local advertising and have local news departments so they are much closer to the people and their local community than the network. So, unlike the network, they have to care what people in their community think because they depend on ratings and local advertising, also are regulated by the FCC to operate in the “public interest.” Even the stations owned by the network are separate companies, many were once locally owned and are locally managed.… Read more »

Monique is an African American comedienne who became an actress. If you’ve never seen the Parkers a spin off from singer Brandy’s show Moesha then her other big role was the mother of Precious in the movie Precious. If you’ve seen none of these than just do the blank cartoon stare and blink three times and move on.

Talk shows has lost all their popularity, they are a dime a dozen on network and cable.
Talk shows are not entertainment they are cheap filler..

No matter who or what ABC tries to run during those daytime slots, they will fail..
Those time slots have been for soaps for past 50yrs, only an Idiot would believe any talk show survive daytime..
The odds are against it.. Oprah was an exception.

ABC Execs & Shareholders:

This is what happens when you listen to the moronic ideas from Mr. Brian Frons.

What were you thinking???

PS: As far as GH goes…keeping Phelps & Guza for over a decade did you no favors to the destruction of what happened to a once iconic show, let alone your daytime line-up of AMC, OLTL, & GH.

ABC Daytime will never been the same. Frank and Ron are doing their absolute best restoring GH to what soaps were about and reminding people what fun it is to watch soaps and daytime TV again.

IF, ABC did get the soaps back they would never bring them back, never..
why do people continue to believe that ABC would even consider airing the 2 soaps again, it will never happen, ever.. 🙂

Also, ABC will not bring them back and none of the other networks want anything to do with them, none..

It started with Katie on The Today Show. You either liked her and Matt or you preferred GMA. I always thought it was ironic that ABC thought their mainly female audience would embrace her, especially after what they did with our soaps. She’s an NBC type girl, and was too “perky” for CBS nightly news. And they should have considered half-hour AMC and OLTL. I’ve since started watching B&B. Half hours aren’t that bad, certainly better than nothing and PP. And we are getting used to stories moving along much fastest instead of dragging on and on. Since we are… Read more »

I think now might be the time for some creative thinking and come up with another type of programming for the afternoon. But if they did go down the scripted drama route aka as soaps they should create a new half hour one– I wouldn’t mind something different than the same ones we had for 40 plus years. I love the classics, but if soaps are to survive some new ones better start popping up soon, and until I see networks investing in creating new ones I will not be too optimistic about the future of scripted drama made for… Read more »

No one will ever convince me that ABC-TV daytime hasn’t suffered since dropping two iconic soaps from their afternoon line up.

For the sake of conversation, if and that’s one huge if, ABC brings back AMC and OLTL, what makes anyone think that they wouldn’t dump them again.

They ( ABC) have proven that viewer loyalty means absolutely nothing to them.

I was a loyal AMC viewer since it’s debut in January of 1970 and as far as I am concerned ABC is dead.

How’s that for loyalty ABC?

What goes around HAS come around.

I agree in that it would be a good idea to put back AMC and OTL for half hour shows. I believe that the ratings would be pretty good have TVGN put them on for two half hour shows at night. It is the time when most adults can put their kids to bed and relax and watch some adult shows.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Photo: NATAS

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
