General Hospital fans were annoyed previous year when ABC declared that the long-running soap would schedule the next Katie Courics talk show - another sign that GH was able to steer toward rejection. But the journalist may be happy to savior of GH!
Sources close to Couric and executive producer Jeff Zucker, told TV Guide Magazine that the duo are concerned about disappointing scores of ABC's "The Revolution", which, if GH gets the ax, it would be an expression introduced to Katie, as an entertainer debuts this fall. Couric and GH wants to see Sugar get the slot because it is more a show, Nielsen-wise, besides Couric does not want the wrath of the fans of GH and risk that they provide to organize a boycott. Who the hell needs that? So Zucker and she want "The Revolution" to go by.
Will the ABC outfits be conventional to this? They may have no choice. In fact, they could also agree on this point. Our spies in studios in Times Square - the new label for the day - ABC telling us the promise to pre-defined sample is fixed on the ABC schedule, but no one does a handstand on the presently in expansion, including a medical program and a game show. While ABC has technical time (though not much) to replace the more revolution is really looking at that option too risky.
Meanwhile, GH ratings are raising thanks to the "explosive" The departure of Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough), and an influx of new energy from One Life to live crossover stars (Kassie DePaiva and Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson) and the return favorites (Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes, Emma Samms).
