    Double gag!

  • Cath

    I agreee. Have to remember that General Hospital switches times. :(

    With Katie Couric’s appearance on “The Chew,” (sounds like a love story between a dog and his bone), hosts and other guests should start jotting down the newspapers they read because Katie will be loaded for bear!

  • cc

    At least General Hospital will break up the gagfest. Only show I’ll watch.

  • Matt

    I think I’ll be watching Steve Harvey at 2p, GH at 3p and Ricki or Judge Judy at 4p instead of Katie on Monday. And even if GH and Katie were gonna be on an hour earlier in my market like in most other ABC markets, I’d probably watch Dr. Phil over Katie as well.

    I started watching “The Chew” when it first broadcast…I cannot watch it any longer thanks to Carla Hall. She competes with the other hosts and even tries to compete with the guests…Not sure where her energy is coming from, but she needs to tone it down and let the others shine…Just cannot stand to watch it any longer..

    Double Gag indeed! I tried to watch “The Chew” one day and had to turn the channel after about 5 minutes. I couldn’t stand the cast, all of them talking over each other was more than I could stomach. ABC cancelled my favorite soap, One Life To Live, for a show that they thought would be much more profitable. GOOD CALL! The show tanked after just a few months. They continue to make lousy decisions and continue to ignore their customers. That being said, I will continue to watch General Hospital and ONLY General Hospital. Other than that, ABC is dead to me. Someone at ABC needs to start listening to the FANS and show Ms. Sweeney and Mr. Iger the door!

    Matt says, “I think I’ll be watching Steve Harvey at 2p, GH at 3p and Ricki or Judge Judy at 4p instead of Katie on Monday.”

    Are you an unemployable idiot?
    You plan your entire afternoon around watching TV?
    Read a book.
    Get a job.
    Dude, you’re wasting your life.

  • Yvette

    She will be on her way out just like she did on channel 4. Also very slick of ABC to change the time of GH so we the viewers of GH forget to change the channel and keep her on I don’t think so I will be watching the Steve Harvey or anything but Katie’s talk show

  • Jewell

    ABC is so desperate, they are pimping Katie on GMA, The noon news,The Chew.
    Pisses me iff they said soaps are too expensive to produce yet she is getting 80 million. Get a clue ABC we won’t watch it, people that are not soap fans are sick of Katie..
