ABC hopes THE CHEW can win over daytime viewers

Brian Frons, ABC's daytime president, said the bulk of women viewers aren't watching soaps. They're watching chat, reality, entertainment and style.

"It was time to look at programming for the majority of women who were watching TV," he said when he popped in on THE CHEW.

When Internet giant Yahoo launches a series of original Web programs starting October 3, Mathison will be helping prospective grooms pop the question in some rather unusual ways -- including one arrival by parachute! -- as the host of ULTIMATE PROPOSAL.
