    Why did they change their time in the first place??? UGH!!!! ;-)

    • Andrew Hass

      There could be a lot of reasons.In the LA market i think GH competes against DOOL.So moving back GH back to it’s old timeslot the 2 soaps won’t be fighting for viewers anymore.As for ABC moved GH to earlier time they probably wanted a good lead in to the Katie Couric show.
