The average network morning shows pop up on your screens bright and early and are full of overly-chipper hosts. As a result, hard news tends to be mixed with fluff stories. A recent look at morning shows revealed the programs spend a lot of time plugging other projects connected to the network.
The longtime New York Giant and current co-host of Live! With Kelly And Michael confirmed the news on his hit program this morning, telling the enthusiastic crowd that he’s officially part of the team. Don’t get too excited, though, GMA fans.

She’s been diagnosed with breast cancer.
It’s been a lengthy haul for Robin Roberts over the past 12 months. Around this time last year, Roberts left her post on Good Morning America in order to seek treatment for the bone marrow disease myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). At the time, the TV host needed a bone marrow transplant, and her sister was preparing to donate bone marrow to help save her life. After months of recovery, Roberts is prepping to return to ABC’s early morning program full time.

Earlier this month, Good Morning America announced that Robin Roberts was on the mend and would be returning to the hit early morning show on February 20.

Good Morning America host Robin Roberts didn’t have the greatest of luck in 2012, but she has big plans to turn things around in 2013. It’s now been 100 days since she underwent a transplant to help her to beat the bone marrow disease she has been fighting, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and now things are looking up in the New Year. However, it’s looking like it will still be quite a while before the host returns to her early morning hosting duties on ABC.
We’re reaching the final days of the turkey-filled month, and Good Morning America is boasting the ratings win in both total viewers and the 25-54 demographic.

When you have Tom Hanks on your live talk show, you figure it's probably safe not to use a delay in case he happens to drop an F-bomb. Well, Good Morning America is learning the hard way that that might not be the case. In fact, Hanks proved it wasn't this morning when he accidentally let an F-Bomb slip. Watch it ahead!
Robin Roberts may be on leave from Good Morning America as she deals with some major cancer issues and the aftermath of surgery, but at least her seat onstage has not been left to a pair of puny shoes.

Over the last four weeks, Today has actually been losing to GMA in total viewers, although both numbers have been between the 4 million and 4 ½ million viewer marks, so it has been a pretty close race. Now, ABC’s morning show has earned its first weekly win over NBC in 17 years.
Fast affiliate ratings are in for Monday’s episodes of Today and GMA, and the latter has pulled through with the winning spot in total viewers as well as in the 25-54 demographic, bringing in 356,000 viewers more than NBC’s morning show. We could blame the ratings on a bad case of the Mondays if Monday’s episode had not been Guthrie’s first official day as co-host on Today and if the numbers on the other unofficial days Guthrie hosted had not also proved to be pitfalls for Today.
