ABC News is rushing to determine just what its upcoming Good Morning America spinoff — GMA In the Afternoon — will look like.  Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott, who regularly appear on GMA doing the hard news and celebrity news segments, and have secondary roles alongside, GMA co-anchors Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos are considered the frontrunners to host the Summer series, that replaces The Revolution, which was canned this past week.   As previously announced, the GMA afternoon edition will air at 2 p.m. in the Eastern time zone and at 1 p.m. in most other areas of the country.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “One other possible difference between the regular morning GMA and GMA In The Afternoon: is that the afternoon edition might call upon ABC News personnel who are not regulars on GMA.  That is especially likely to be true if there is major breaking news and the network does extra programming or goes live during the afternoon period.   it was leaders at the ABC Television Network who came to ABC News and then to GMA with the idea of doing the afternoon version for about nine weeks.”

THR also indicated that ABC morning show’s producers were happy to accommodate the idea as a way to extend their franchise.   “This is a great opportunity to give more exposure to the show and attract new viewers,” said the ABC spokesperson.

So, who do you think should host the GMA summer replacement series until GH gets the timeslot and Katie Couric’s new talker debuts? Let us know!

In NY, we have local news in the 4pm slot that Oprah vacated. So to me that is way too much news: News at 12, game show 12:30. Chew at 1pm, GMA 2pm, GH 3pm, then news from 4-7pm? The NYC tri-state area will be changing the channel. The one good thing about GH moving to the 2pm slot is hopefully it will get pre-empted less often; it seems the 3-4 EST is the prime time for news conferences. 🙂

Sorry but it IS different in different markets. From today’s tv guide on the Comcast (my cable provider) website:

The Dr. Oz Show
“The 3 Silent Killers of Women: Why You Must Know…”
4:00-5:00p | Ch 5 WNYW
TVPG
(Airdate April 16, 2012) Dr. Oz discusses the often unnoticed symptoms of potentially fatal diseases; nutritionist Heidi Skolnik presents healthy cereal options.

Eyewitness News First at 4
4:00-5:00p | Ch 7 WABC
Local news, sports and weather.

Proof enough? I wish I could post a screencap here. Geez people, I know what comes on my DVR at the end of GH everyday!

Just cause something is one way where you live, please do not insult me by saying I do not know what I am saying.

Online for the first time today. It’s not actually the cable companies that decide what airs on which network; maybe Michael can elaborate on that for you. Never watched Dr. Oz – no interest in talk shows at all. I have been watching GH since 1978; my fav soap of them all. Years ago when I was a stay-at-home mom I was able to watch AMC & OLTL; but once my kids were grown and I rejoined the work force I cut out AMC and “taped” OLTL & GH. Time to watch made me cut it to GH only, but… Read more »

Hi Kathy C. I don’t like info/reality/cooking shows on daytime programming…Will not watch this GMA …Another show that will talk you to death………….I use to watch OLTL for a very long time.. I started watching all the soaps with my mom..And have been hooked ever since…OLTL was my number one soap..To me it had the most heart & the hold show they were like a family..Very close knit..Especially Viki……..I have the cast picture of OLTL…Look at it everyday…I watch GH everyday & If I have to go somewhere I record it…Enjoy seeing some of the actors from OLTL..

I Agree with Barbara t on 4/18 at2:26pm… I am only going to watch GH….I am not watching these mindless shows either…………………..They really screwed up daytime programming BIG TIME………….The fight goes on…Don’t watch this crap…Just like we soap fans didn’t watch The Revolution & it got cancelled.. The same goes for these other shows like Katie couric,GMA , ETC….Don’t watch them and the ratings will flop with these shows also..

Call me pessimistic but I think that GMA in the Afternoon and the fifth hour of Today will be the replacements of GH and Days in 2013. Those news shows probably cost even less to produce than talk shows.

I don’t trust ABC as far as I could throw their rat asses. Typically if it sounds to good to be true, it is. They have seen first hand what a group of pissed off soap fans can accomplish (Revolution). If they are playing games again we will have no choice but to sink “Katie” and any other nonsense they shove down our throats. We are the viewers and together we have the power to make or break whatever they do. Hope for their sake they have an above board agenda planned.

Loved this, ” They have seen first hand what a group of pissed off soaps fans can accomplish (Revolution)”. Great Writing. I’m glad that was the name of their show. That name has worked for our agenda in the end. LOL
Good Writing, Thank You.

Katie Couric, Etc.. These kind of shows don’t belong especially on daytime programming…Put them on primetime….Or at 2: 00 inthe morning… No one will be up to watch this crap…………..

I don’t care who hosts GMA In the Afternoon because I will NOT watch it. I want GMA and The Chew to fail. I want OLTL back. OLTL never should have been canceled–and we all know it–the failure of The Revolution proves it. And don’t tell me to get over it and move on. If you want to move on fine, but please respect the hopes and dreams of others. Thank you.

As far as GMA in the afternoon…who cares. I don’t even watch it in the morning anymore since ABC axed my afternoon soaps. I only watch GH, and even their commercials if thats what it takes. I’ve said it before, I don’t trust ABC. One year renewal is just enough to celebrate GH’s 50th.

Doesn’t matter. Soap fans should boycott it. If it does well it could very well end up replacing GH NEXT year. Do NOT Watch!

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
