    If you’re going to Disney World, you might not be able to watch General Hospital. The ABC affiliate in Orlando, Florida, has announced that it is giving away GH’s timeslot to a new talk show — and not the one from Katie Couric.

    In announcing the signing of Kate Couric to a new talk show earlier this year, ABC also made the secondary announcement that it would be giving an hour of its daytime lineup back to local affiliates. While it wasn’t immediately clear what that would mean for General Hospital, a disturbing new scenario has emerged due to the actions of one of ABC’s affiliates.

    Orlando’s ABC station, WFTV, has announced that it will begin airing comedian Steve Harvey’s new talk show in General Hospital’s timeslot beginning in the fall of 2012. In Orlando, Katie Couric’s talk show, Katie, will be airing on a non-ABC channel.
