Will The Revolution still be televised? The ABC daytime makeover show — hosted by Jennifer Ashton, Tim Gunn, Tiffanie Davis Henry, Harley Pasternak and Ty Pennington — has had a difficult time reinventing ABC's daytime lineup, only pulling about half the viewers that One Life to Live previously attracted in the timeslot. The Revolution may have to make way for Katie Couric's new talk show, which launches on many ABC stations this fall. But...
ABC's new daytime show The Revolution will debut on Monday, Jan. 16, the network announced Monday.
The Revolution will feature fashion guru Tim Gunn, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition host Ty Pennington, celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, women's health expert Jennifer Ashton and therapist Tiffanie Davis Henrie and focus on providing life-changing tips and tools to transform viewers' lives. The series (airing 2/1c) will also include a weekly highlight of one woman's personal journey over the course of five months.
Reality producer J.D. Roth had a hunch that ABC was close to picking up his new daytime series The Revolution. But Roth says he had no idea until Thursday morning that his greenlight would come at the expense of two soap opera staples.
Thursday's ABC soapocalypse left daytime fans reeling, as the network pulled the plug on 43-year-old One Life to Live and 41-year-old All My Children. Roth, whose new show will take the place of OLTL in January, says he first brought The Revolution to ABC more than a year ago.
