ABC rolled out its new daytime show Monday, and the initial results may have the network rethinking whether it was a good idea to cancel its long-running soap operas.
The new talk show "The Revolution" premiered to a 1.9 rating/5 share in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets, TVmediainsights.com reports. That was down from the lead-in hour, which averaged 2.4/6.
In the same time period one year ago — when the now-canceled soap opera "One Life to Live" was still airing in the slot — the average rating/share was 2.3/6.
"The Revolution" is a lifestyle reality/talk show hosted by Ty Pennington, Tim Gunn, Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry, Dr. Jennifer Ashton and trainer Harley Pasternak.
