Will Katie Succeed with GH as lead-in? TV Columnist has an Opinion
According to Martin, there's little chance of great success for Katie, especially with younger audiences (women), since Katie Couric is no spring chicken herself. He's also of the opinion that there's enough talk on the air and that a new chat offering will hardly make a ratings dent. What he does say is that General Hospital has made a comeback of late, thanks to its new executive producer, Frank Valentini, who took emphasis away from the dark mob story lines and is attempting to bring the show back to its female-driven roots.
You can read Martin's whole article, which also appeared in the Huffington Post, below. You'll also note the many comments from readers, like those of this blog, who are vehemently opposed to more chatter and continue to demand the return of the cancelled soaps All My Children and One Life to Live.
