Katie made it to a second season after all!  The talk show that sort of bumped General Hospital into One Life to Live’s old timeslot on ABC affiliate markets nationwide was officially renewed today by Disney-ABC Domestic Television and announced by Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

Marinelli in a statement related ,”Katie is the No. 1 new syndicated talk show of the 2012-13 season, and we are thrilled to announce a green light for Season Two. Katie is an immensely talented host who has an incomparable ability to connect with her viewers. We also have outstanding station partners and time periods, and look forward to continued success with Katie this year and into Season Two.”

Katie Couric added, “Hosting, producing and launching a show from scratch has been challenging but very rewarding. I’m looking forward to working with our terrific team to build on the success of our first season, and continuing to share compelling stories, explore important topics, and create entertaining television for our audience.”

So soapers, what do you think about Couric’s renewal knowing things also are good for General Hospital? Let us know!

WHY? Oh wait. It’s ABC. They don’t know what’s good if it hit them in the face? Aside from GH and Revenge, ABC is a snooze.

who actually watches this show?…………I wish I can find someone in my circle or
co-workers that watch Katie……….

I just do not care, ABC has burned me bad.

GH is my only ABC show I watch.

I don’t know what ABC is smoking but Katie is not a hit show. Steve Harvey got a people’s choice, I don’t think Katie did. Let’s face it, ABC is not going to admit they are wrong in taking AMC or OLTL to move GH.

I hardly watch talk shows and some of those so called reality shows especially that vulgar Jersy Shore. If J.S. was truly real it seems to me they would have either killed each other by now or b on one of those court shows.(i no its a primetime show but it does air repeats early in the day) NOW a few talk shows are harmless but i rather watch my soaps. When i want the real world ill watch a talk show or the news or turn my tv off and just step outside my front door. But sometimes i need at least 30 min. to an hour a day to escape the insanity of the real world and the soaps, no matter how much their insane but still entertaining stories can be most of the time,allows me that escapism i need. Im just glad that this soap turnaround and higher ratings prove to those who thought that the soaps were as dead as a dinasour that they were wrong and that us viewers were right: We do want our soaps!
p.s. SO NETWORKS, WAKE UP!

It will be cancelled next year. ABC has to try and save what is left of its face. Fact is Katie has not been the number one new talk show consistently. Steve Harvey has bested her a couple of times. She can not retain the lead she gets from GH so they have to give her one more year before they pull the plug and really start licking their wounds when they see the numbers AMC and OLTL will be pulling in on the internet!! Hey Brian Frons, how is your job at ABC going…oh wait you were FIRED!!

She does has experience in interviewing politicians. So I think next year her show will do better. As for right now, it seems like she does better with news stories than with celebrities.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
