'General Hospital' Time Change: ABC Soap Moves On Schedule

Posted: Updated:
"General Hospital" is moving to 2 p.m.

"General Hospital" is heading to a new time.

ABC will shift "General Hospital" from 3 p.m. ET to 2 p.m. ET on Sept. 10, 2012. The show moves to the now-canceled "The Revolution" timeslot and Katie Couric's talk show, "Katie," will air at 3 p.m.

"General Hospital," which cleaned up at the 2012 Daytime Emmy Awards, is the last soap opera standing on ABC. Both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" got the axe in favor of lifestyle programs "The Chew" and "The Revolution." There was a plan to revive the two fan-favorite soaps online via production company Prospect Park, but the deals fell through.

Meanwhile, "The Chew" is sticking around ABC, but "The Revolution" failed to strike ratings gold.

"General Hospital," now in its 49th season, has produced more than 12,500 episodes.
