    Although "Good Afternoon America" showed some gains over the recent performance of ratings eyesore "The Revolution," those gains could only last so long. The ABC News daytime talk show hosted by "Good Morning America's" Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott has also failed to bring in an audience on par with the year-ago airings of the canceled "One Life to Live" after five weeks of ratings data (week of August 6-10, 2012).

    "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.
