ABC Cancels ‘The Chew,’ Expands “GMA” to 3-Hours

'The Chew' Will Remain in Production Through the Summer

ABC News’ “Good Morning America,” will expand to three hours, adding the 1 p.m. hour ET in place of “The Chew” to its daily telecast. After seven seasons, “The Chew” will cease production at the end of this season but will continue to air as planned until September with all-new episodes airing in June. 
 
“Over the past six years ‘Good Morning America’ has solidified its place as America’s No. 1 morning show,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks, and president, Disney|ABC Television. “We believe there is great opportunity for viewers and advertisers in expanding to a third hour.”
 
He continued, “While this is the right decision for our business, it is also bittersweet. For seven years ‘The Chew’ has delighted audiences by delivering innovative food segments in an entertaining atmosphere. We applaud and thank Gordon Elliott, Aimee Householder, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and the entire cast and crew for their great work and amazing run. And we wish them the very best.”

Additional details about the program, including the title and anchors, will be announced in the coming months.

  1. Just how many talk shows can people watch? Honestly, I watch abc for the local news at noon, and General Hospital that’s about it. Should have left the soaps.

  2. Why don’t they just add the 3RD hour 7AM to 10AM then to 1PM timeslot GH at 1PM and local stations have syndie programs at 2PM?
