2 May 6th, 2011 CNN reports: Couric deal to ABC which might bump GH is premature!


CNN is reporting today the news that Katie Couric will join ABC for a daytime talk show is premature since CBS has the right to match any network offers. Couric’s representative told CNN on the record Thursday that there is “nothing new to announce.” One source, who asked not to be identified said, “Nothing is going to happen for some weeks until there is clarity as to what CBS will do with regard to matching an offer to another suitor.”

Talks are continuing between Couric and ABC, another source said. Couric’s role at ABC beyond a syndicated talk show still needs to be determined, the source said. The possibility that a Couric talk show would bump the long-running soap General Hospital off ABC’s afternoon schedule is “pure speculation,” the source said.”

    Sounds like ABC’s longstanding view on denying everything is coming into play here…

    maybe if the soaps would bring back as many veterans and major characters as possible,, dead characters are not an issue,the fans would watch,like the old days,some of us have watched soaps sence we were babies on our moms hip,and I remember my mom loved Another World and Days of our lives,and thats how I got started watching and now Im 63,its very sad for me to know the day will come,there will be know more soaps on daytime TV, I have 100′s of tapes that Im putting on DVDs,from the 90s till now,so I can have them years from now and 100s of soap books too,so see I love my soaps, I hate that AMC and OLTL will soon be gone too.
