Sonny and Brenda, say it ain’t so!

There’s more bad news for you soap fans, Katie Couric’s potential new ABC talk show may force the cancellation of “General Hospital.

UPDATE: GH will NOT be cancelled…for now. Get the details HERE

So many trusted sources like TV Guide and TMZ are reporting this, and saying Couric is close to signing a $20 million deal with ABC. The deal would include work on ABC News and ’20/20′ specials, fill-in anchoring gigs and a syndicated one-hour talk show.

The show would debut September 2012 and ABC is considering giving the hour of programming space “General Hospital” now has back to its affiliates.

“General Hospital” is the third-longest-running soap on the air, and after January 2012, and if it survives it would be the only soap on ABC.

Once everything is set, Couric would most likely be at the 3pm time slot, trying for Oprah’s viewers.
