Earlier this week, ABC released some retooling decisions for its daytime lineup. The network is renewing long-time soap, General Hospital coming up on its 50th year. Food talk show, The Chew, which premiered last September and replaced canceled soap All My Children was also renewed though newer health and lifestyle talk show, The Revolution which bowed last January did not make the cut. ABC will end The Revolution in July. In the interim weeks when The Revolution ends and before new talk show Katie starring Katie Couric debuts on September 10, the ABC-owned stations will carry GMA in the Afternoon, a spinoff of the morning daytime program Good Morning America which will highlight many of the same personalities and serve up lighter content and breaking news when necessary.
