    On June 6, 2011, ABC finally announced (after months of rumors) that it had signed a deal with former "CBS Evening News" anchor Katie Couric to host a new daily syndicated talk show, and that said show would replace veteran soap opera "General Hospital" in the 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT/CT timeslot. While initially the decision brought fear to soap opera fans, who only two months prior learned that ABC Daytime's two other veteran soaps ("All My Children" and "One Life to Live") would be replaced by two new food and lifestyle centered talk shows ("The Chew" and "The...

    "General Hospital" is the only soap opera left on the ABC Daytime schedule and is also the longest running dramatic series in the networks history. Unfortunately, the soap is facing the same cancellation danger that its former network counterparts ("All My Children" and "One Life to Live") faced just over a year ago before ABC officially announced the two would go off the air in a press release. Before any decision on the future of "GH" is ultimately made, the drama series is showing an uptick in key demos and viewership. READ MORE

    As previously reported, ABC soap opera "General Hospital" will lose its coveted 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM CT/PT timeslot beginning in September 2012 when the network hands the hour back to its local affiliates. The move will leave ABC's daytime lineup with just three hours left to program with "The View" already secured in the 11:00 AM ET/10:00 AM CT/PT slot. New talk shows "The Chew" and "The Revolution" will go head-to-head with "General Hospital" when it comes to the almighty dollar (ie. which show brings in enough income relative to cost) in a battle for the remaining two hours...

If I were to tell you that because ABC scheduled the series finale of "AMC" during the first week of the 2011-2012 television season that the soap would remain in the season-to-date rankings until...
