ABC Refusing to Sell?

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, June 24, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Rumors are growing stronger that ABC has received offers from other networks to purchase All My Children and One Life To Live and has declined to sell both shows. This, despite their previous, public, assurances that they would be more than willing to sell the two productions. If true, the question is why? 

Some say it is because they don't want egg on their face should these shows go on to success elsewhere.  Others say that they want to keep the shows (OLTL in particular) ...

Couric's Deal Near Competion

Posted by ghhshirley on Saturday, May 21, 2011,
Lending further credence to what we have heard about Katie Couric being headed for Oprah's syndicated affiliate slot, as opposed to General Hospital's time slot, the LA Times reports that, Disney Chief Executive Robert A. Iger has been "very involved" in the deal and has been particularly interested in bringing Couric to ABC, in part, to fill the programming void that will be created by the departure of the queen of daytime TV, Oprah Winfrey. Disney's ABC-owned stations carry The Oprah Winfre...

GH: Nancy Lee Grahn Optimistic

Posted by ghhshirley on Saturday, May 21, 2011,
Nancy Lee Grahn is full of optimism regarding the head writer switch. Here is a composite of her tweets, with minor editing for clarity:

"As soon as the new stuff kicks in it's going to be much better, hopefully there will be something for everyone. I think it'll be great. You've no idea how much faith I have in this new shift at GH. Come aboard. We've aborted North Atlantic, gotten off the Titanic, and aboard the Love Boat."

"I knew about Ingo [Rademacher]. He's my friend and I love him. [His ...

GH: Guza's Reaction

Posted by ghhshirley on Friday, May 20, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Word is that it was General Hospital's Executive Producer, Jill Farren Phelps, rather that ABC Daytime head Brian Frons, who was the bearer of the bad news to Guza.  Supposedly, Guza stormed out of the ABC offices right then and there.  This may be where the, "effective immediately", came from in the ABC press release regarding the change in head writers, as well as the lack of public thank you's for Guza's contributions to the show.

GH: Cancelling GH for Katie? Maybe...or NOT.

Posted by ghhshirley on Thursday, May 5, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  As we've previously reported (see two related articles below) , Couric is close to signing a $20 million deal with ABC for a daytime talk show as well as a significant role at ABC News.  Now, TMZ is speculating that Couric's one-hour syndicated show could possibly premiere in September 2012 in General Hospital's current time slot.  OR...that Couric could replace one of ABC's upcoming lifestyle shows,should either fail. Both shows are replacing ABC's axed soaps, AMC and OLTL.

Katie Couric Still a Possibility for ABC

Posted by ghhshirley on Tuesday, April 26, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Despite previous denials by Brian Frons that he has been in talks with Katie Couric, insiders are saying that she now appears headed for a deal at ABC.

ABC has made a big push for a Couric talk show, sweetening the pot. According to TVGuide, one person close to Couric described the ABC move as "a distinct possibility."  An ABC spokesperson refused to comment.

ABC's last minute surge to get Couric may be driven by the loss of The Oprah Winfrey Show on its owned and operated TV stati...

GH: Casting

Posted by ghhshirley on Monday, April 25, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  Apparently GH is casting the recurring role of Javier, who is hispanic, early 30's, sexy intense, dangerous and charasmatic.  (It is said to be short term, 2 to 4 weeks, at least for now.)

In other news, rumors continue that General Hospital may be on the chopping block for the fall of 2012. The only thing that seems certain is that a decision will be made either way by February of 2012.  Meanwhile, GH is facing some deep budget cuts.

NOW is the time to get involved!  See our Save ...

Katie Couric to Replace ABC Soap?

Posted by ghhshirley on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, In : General Hospital Rumors 
Rumorville:  "....sources indicate there’s a strong chance that ABC will put a network daytime slot on the table when the bidding for [Katie Couric's new talk show] begins in earnest as she sets her segue from The CBS Evening News. It’s no secret that ABC intends to pare down its three-hour slate of daytime sudsers (All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live) in the coming years."

"A Couric show could be a high-profile transition for the Alphabet in one of the time slots ...
