The temporary extension of Good Morning America featuring Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott, builds on Revolution‘s ratings by more than 40%.
The debut edition of Good Afternoon America ended abruptly yesterday in mid-anecdote from singer Liza Minnelli. Good Morning America has watched its competitors at NBC’s Today stretch their show to four hours in recent years, so it is trying out its own expansion. Good Afternoon America is airing for nine weeks as a summer replacement series and if it does well, ABC may look to find it a permanent home.
With the recent success of Good Morning America, ABC is launching a p.m. spinoff as a summer experiment. The hour-long Good Afternoon America is scheduled for a nine-week run starting July 9.
