Since the news broke months ago that Katie Couric’s new talk show, Katie had been picked up by 95% of the ABC affiliates around the country, and that would cause a shift in the time slot for General Hospital, fans were at times confused as to what it meant for their favorite ABC soap. Now today, ABC officially confirms the news that GH will move into One Life to Live’s old time slot beginning September 10th! Here is what the official release stated below:
“There’s never been a better time to “check-in” to ABC’s General Hospital and beginning Monday, September 10, the popular daytime drama moves to its new time period of 2:00 p.m. ET /1:00 p.m. PT/CT, on the ABC Television Network. Fans can now catch all the intrigue and excitement of Port Charles one hour earlier.
General Hospital, the most honored show of the 2012 Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, celebrates its golden anniversary on April 1, 2013. Approaching 50 historic years on ABC, General Hospital is the longest running American soap opera currently in production and the third longest-running drama in American television history. General Hospital was created by Frank and Doris Hursley. Frank Valentini is the executive producer. Ron Carlivati is the head writer.
