If you are a fan of the ABC’s morning show, “Good Morning America,” yet you often miss it because you are a late sleeper (or you forget to DVR it), than you might be happy to learn that a new show, “Good Afternoon America” will premier as an afternoon version of the morning television show. It’s set to run for nine weeks starting July 9th.
The brand new show replaces the 2 o’clock afternoon time slot that once resided with the cancelled talk show “The Revolution” (any ideas on what that show was?). Good Afternoon America will focus on pop culture, celebrities, and healthy and lifestyle news stories. Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer will host the show and use the same stage as their morning peeps.
Good Afternoon America is set up to keep ABC viewers until Katy Couric’s new show debuts in the fall. Lara Spencer expresses her excitement to be on the team stating, “I am beyond excited and honored to be part of this new chapter for the ‘Good Morning America’ family…’Good Afternoon America’ gives us the opportunity to reach a different audience, and better yet, spend a little more time with our morning viewers who want to be part of the conversation and fun we plan on bringing to afternoon tv.”
As a personal fan of the ‘Good Morning America’ show (and yah, I think Josh is kind of cute), I am looking forward to this new afternoon installment.
Will you be tuning into ‘Good Afternoon America;? Do you think it will be successful?
