Katie Couric’s $20 million deal with ABC is almost complete. Her new deal will have Katie doing a one-hour, 5-day-a-week syndicated talk show, plus do specials for ABC News, 20/20, and a lot of fill-in anchoring. All sounds great for her, but the casualty in all of this? ABC could cancel General Hospital. Which is HORRIBLE NEWS!
It’s all in the rumor stages right now, but if this all goes down I know there will be a TON of soap fans that will be picketing outside of ABC with Katie Couric’s head on their picket sign with a fat bull-eye on her forehead. I hope her deal doesn’t cause the last soap standing on ABC to go under. It would be a crying shame, and a sad day for soaps.
