Please don't do it, Katie! This move could mark the end of soap operas as we know it!
Back in April, we were sad to hear that All My Children will be gone forever in September, and One Life to Live will say goodbye in January.
Now, we've learned that Katie Couric MAY be signing a $20 million deal with ABC for a one-hour daytime talk show that would air in General Hospital's timeslot! Nooooooo!!!!!!!
If the deal goes through, Katie's show would start up in September. No word as to whether or not GH would be canceled or put into another time slot, but unfortunately we're NOT optimistic for the show if that happens.
Look, Katie…we understand you're looking for new opportunities now that you've parted ways with CBS Evening News, but soap operas are an extremely endangered species.
Think about it. If you spare GH, you could be a HERO to lots and lots of devoted fans! Enrique Iglesias will sing songs about you! LOLz.
Would U like to see a Katie Couric daytime talk show on ABC? Or would U prefer the continued existence of General Hospital?
