The View

Earlier today, we reported on changes affecting those viewers who use WATCH ABC to view their favorite ABC programming. In our report, we noted that in order to view the network's shows online or On Demand, viewers would only be able access programming within one week of air if they are a current subscriber to participating TV service providers. This change goes into effect on Monday, January 6. Not in our report was how this change would directly effect ABC Daytime's "The View," "The Chew" and "General Hospital."
On Tuesday, December 31, 2013, Disney/ABC touted its reigning champ WABC-TV as New York's most watched station in 2013 and the number one station in the country. While highlighting the success of "Live with Kelly and Michael," November's "The ING New York City Marathon," "The View," "The Chew," its Eyewitness News broadcasts, and ABC's strong primetime schedule, the company neglected to note the success of its sole remaining daytime soap opera, "General Hospital," on the station.
Scheduled guests for the week of DECEMBER 9-13 are as follows (subject to change):
Christmas is coming a little bit early for fans of Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) this year. The actor is gracing the small screen alongside Jennie Garth (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) in an ABC Family “25 Days of Christmas” film titled “Holidaze.”
In celebration of its "Home for the Holidays" campaign, ABC announced today plans to incorporate United States Veterans in upcoming episodes of its daytime and primetime programming, including "Modern Family," "Last Man Standing" and "General Hospital." Comedy "The Neighbors" will offer a veteran the opportunity to shadow one of their directors as they put an episode together. Meanwhile, "The View" and "The Chew" will support the vets with various themed episodes throughout the holiday season.
The alphabet network is very proud of its sole remaining daytime drama series, "General Hospital," which has increased its total audience and is surging in the key sales demos. The network is also proud of daytime talkers "The View" and "The Chew," which are both achieving increased audiences in demos. "Chew" is also reaching a new zenith in total audience as the talk show attracted its largest total viewer count and women 25-54 demo count in its history.
On Wednesday, October 23, "General Hospital's" Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) will be giving ABC's "The View" a male perspective on the day's hot topics as the daytime star is scheduled to co-host the chatfest alongside Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and Whoopi Goldberg. The Canadian born actor will also be chatting it up with the stars of ABC's "The Middle" as the cast celebrates the show's 100th episode airing that night.
