ABC announced plans today to expand its flagship morning show “Good Morning America,” adding a new third hour at 1 p.m. ET/noon CT/PT.
The expansion comes at the expense of “The Chew,” which will cease production at the end of this season. “The Chew” will continue to air as planned until September, including rolling out all-new episodes starting in June.
Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks, and president, Disney|ABC Television, commented: “Over the past six years ‘Good Morning America’ has solidified its place as America’s No. 1 morning show. We believe there is great opportunity for viewers and advertisers in expanding to a third hour.”
