‘General Hospital’ Time Slot Switch: The Affected Stations Fall Afternoon Lineups


As previously reported, seven of the eight ABC Owned Television (OTV) stations – WABC in New York, KABC in Los Angeles, WLS in Chicago, WPVI in Philadelphia, KGO in San Francisco, KTRK in Houston, WTVD in Raleigh-Durham – along with KSAT in San Antonio will be moving “General Hospital” back to its former time period of 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM CT/PT beginning Monday, September 8.

Since reporting the list of stations making the switch, Soap Opera Network has learned the new afternoon lineups of each station, which includes the expansion of local noon news on WABC, WTVD and WPVI to one hour, CBS Television Distribution’s (CTD) “Daytime Jeopardy!” airing on six of the eight ABC stations and the addition of CTD’s “The Rachael Ray Show” to four of the eight stations making the switch. Of note, “The Chew” will remain in its 1:00 PM ET/12:00 PM CT/PT slot on most of the stations with KSAT being the sole exception. The foodie show will continue airing at 11:00 AM on KSAT. With the exception of KSAT and WLS, Disney/ABC Domestic Television’s (DADT) “Who Wants to be a Millionaire,” with new host Terry Crews (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), will air in a later slot on most of the stations making time slot switches. KSAT and WLS do not air “Millionaire” on their stations in their Designated Market Areas (DMA).
