Daytime Drama! Could Katie Couric Bring About The End Of General Hospital?!?!

katie couric could bring about end of general hospital

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?

Oprah Vs Oprah

oprah vs oprah

SPOILER ALERT: Oprah wins.

Looks like Ms. Winfrey may be doing too well for her own good.

Oprah's OWN network is doing so well that it's actually taking away fans from her talk show, which is in the midst of its final season.

Apparently, over its first two weekdays, OWN's viewership has actually gone up during the time slot for Oprah's talk show LOLs.

Team Oprah or Team Oprah?

ABC Picks Up Secret Millionaire!

Filed under: Reality TV

abc-picks-up-secret-millionaire

Oh boy! ABC is trying to show NBC what's what!

The network has officially picked up a new reality series, called Secret Millionaire, set to air on the Sunday night time slot normally filled by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, starting March 6th!

The show, which is based on a UK series, is similar to the CBS reality series Undercover Boss, and will feature successful US business men under cover in some of the country's poverty-stricken areas for a week. On the last day, they will reveal their true identities, and donate large amounts of money to those with whom they spent their time!

Sounds like just a big a tear-jerker as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition! Which means it will be just as big a hit!

Thoughts??

Bummer for Barbara!

ABC has told the cast of The View that they won't be taking Oprah's coveted 4 p.m. time slot after she departs.

Co-creator Barbara Walters could have earned tens of millions of dollars if the show had been sold into syndication!

Babs says:

"We are comfortable and happy at 11 a.m., but 4 [p.m.] is better . . . and more lucrative. And [ABC] thought it was in interesting idea."

But not inneresting enough!!

Too bad.
