Yeah! Yippee! General Hospital is being renewed and the Revulsion - ah, I mean, the Revolution - is being cancelled. This wasn't a huge surprise if you looked at the numbers. Yet, ABC has made such awful choices regarding its daytime, and nighttime, line-ups that it is always hard to guess. Yes, they have had some winners in the evening - Revenge, for example - the losers are outnumbering them. Amongst the losers, I count shows that are doing well in ratings just because of their time slot. Suburgatory is a good example.
Anyway, I'm delighted that ABC saw the benefit of keeping General Hospital on air and I do appreciate the importance of viewership. It is an expensive show to produce and they can't keep it around just for a few fans. So keep the TV on at 3:00 or whatever time GH comes on. Let's show them that we do want daytime drama to survive and thrive!
