Will Katie Couric Save GENERAL HOSPITAL?

TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan posted some new insider information today from ABC's Times Square Studios. Will Katie Couric's desire for a strong lead-in force the network into keep GENERAL HOSPITAL instead of poorly rated THE REVOLUTION?

Sources close to Couric and her exec producer Jeff Zucker tell TV Guide Magazine that the duo has expressed concern about the disappointing ratings of ABC's The Revolution which, if GH gets the ax, would be the lead-in to Katie when the talker debuts this fall. Couric and Zucker want to see GH get that slot because it's a stronger show, Nielsen-wise, plus Couric does not want to face the wrath of GH fans and risk the chance they'll organize a boycott. Who the hell needs that? So she and Zucker want The Revolution to go bye-bye.
