    Why on earth would Disney/ABC issue a press release like this for a show that has already been cancelled? What difference does it make at this point?

    Truthfully, these numbers for Katie are respectable by today’s standards, and if her show was not given such high profile time slots with high ratings expectations on strong stations, it might have been renewed. But that along with her unusually high salary almost certainly sealed her demise.

    I agree Chris esp. about the release of the press release. Makes no sense at all.

    It is clearly one of those cases of cost outweighing the ratings. She is doing better than other shows that were renewed already but her salary and the expectations for her show just were too much.

    Amazed how ABC release a press release on a show they are cancelling but we never heard them say one word about GH. Even one on Kelly and Michael.

  • Mike

    There have been Kelly & Michael releases the last 2 weeks in which they were the #1 talk show in syndication.
