General Hospital Cheats Death as ABC Instead Ends The Revolution Talk Show

The Revolution will no longer be televised — as of July 9 — as ABC has elected to snuff the daytime self-improvement show, our sister site Deadline reports.

As such, ABC’s last remaining soap opera General Hospital, which was at risk of being sent to the morgue upon the September 10 arrival of Katie Couric’s daytime talker, has a new lease on life and will thus live to celebrate 50 years on air come April 1, 2013.

General Hospital Puts Another One Life to Live Vet on Contract

Filling the gap from The Revolution‘s end to Katie‘s debut will be GMA In the Afternoon, a companion show of sorts to ABC’s morning program.

What do you say, GH fans? Are you thrilled to dodge that bullet (unlike pregnant Carly was able to when Sonny popped her in the noggin)?

    I was very upset when All My Children and One Life to Live were cancelled. I didn’t like
    The Revolution and might watch The Chew if it was in a different time slot, maybe on the food channel. I love General Hospital and I am glad that it is not being cancelled.

    I have been watching General Hospital since it started, but the writers have gotten so stupid in their writing because they make smart people appear dumb. This is getting boring, please improve the script or my friends and I will stop watching this show.

    So glad they 86 that show it and the Chew was boring in the beginning and a little better now and I feel better since they integrated OLTL and GH so I’m not so mad anymore but seriously ABC need to find a replacement Jason or find a body cause Sam just make me cry everytime they show her and Danny
