ABC's 'Good Afternoon America' Pumps Up Numbers for Time Slot -- Despite Dissing Liza B&C
The debut of ABC's "Good Afternoon America" -- a spinoff of the network’s morning show "Good Morning America" -- drew 1.92 million total viewers on Monday, reports B&C.
That's an improvement of 40% in total viewers from the average delivery of "The Revolution" in the same time period, the story says. ABC canceled "The Revolution" in April.
ABC is giving "Good Afternoon America" a nine-week test run. As previously reported, the Monday debut didn't go off without a hitch, as the broadcast ended abruptly in the middle of an anecdote by singer Liza Minnelli.
