The ABC affiliate has another big move planned for next fall: Steve Harvey’s new talk show will take over the 3p.m. time slot of “General Hospital.” ABC will no longer program the 3p.m. hour and has opened the time slot for a syndicated talk show from Katie Couric. Disney/ABC says “Katie” is sold to 60 percent of the country. But in Orlando, Couric will air on WESH-Channel 2, which hasn’t announced a time slot for her. WFTV decided to go another direction. General Manager Shawn Bartelt is high on Harvey, who hosts “Family Feud” on WRDQ-Channel 27, WFTV’s sister station. “He’s funny. He’s written extensively about relationships and has that ability to connect with women and talk about the relationships in their lives,” Bartelt said. “He has broad appeal to everyone.” “Steve Harvey” is sold to more than 55percent of the country, NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution said Monday. Bartelt likes her chances with Harvey, the popular comedian. “During daytime you need a show with broad appeal and ethnic appeal if you want to win time periods,” she said. So what happens to “General Hospital”? Soap fans are worried, especially after ABC canceled two soaps in favor of lifestyle shows. “The Chew,” a food program, replaced “All My Children” at 1p.m. “The Revolution,” with Tim Gunn and Ty Pennington, starts at 2 p.m. in January after “One Life to Live” leaves the network. The changes have soap fans asking where “GH” will land. WFTV program manager John Keyes wrote to a fan: “The ABC Television Network is no longer going to program the 3p.m. time slot beginning in the fall of 2012. They have already informed us of that. They have not officially said that ‘General Hospital’ is going away but there will no longer be a3 p.m. ABC Network program provided to us. I do not officially know if ABC will be moving ‘General Hospital’ to another time period or cancellingit.” ABC released a statement earlier this year that the cancellation of “General Hospital” wasn’t inevitable. The statement reads: “Rather it means that in September 2012 we will program our daytime block with our three strongest shows. … The best way to ensure a favorite show stays on the air is to watch it.” WFTV banked on “Dr. Oz” by putting his show in the slot where Oprah Winfrey aired for 25 years. Bartelt said WFTV’s priority was to continue winning the 5-6:30 p.m. news time slots, which the station did in October. “Oz is doing what I need him to do,” Bartelt said. “I would like it to be a little better than it is, but he is delivering women to the 5 o’clock news.” Another change for WFTV next fall: a talk show with “Survivor” host Jeff Probst that Bartelt plans to air at 9 a.m. “He connects with people,” she said. “He’s very concerned about people. He’s not into pretension.” By Hal Boedeker Television Critic Harvey Steve Harvey to get soap slot on WFTV It’s Vegas, baby, as the “90210” gang heads to sin city.

CORRECTIONS & CLARIFICATIONS and it’s always handled so well that I never really had any reason to worry about it.” The episode, called “The First Time,” also finds heterosexual McKinley High couple Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele)having sex with each other for the first time. And the whole thing is set against the backdrop of the Artie- directed (Kevin McHale)production of “West Side Story.” “I think it’s handled very sweetly and very emotionally,” Colfer says. “They’re expecting this big, raunchy, suggestive, brainwashing storyline when really it’s very sweet.” —TheWrap Emmy-winning “Glee” star Chris Colfer says he expects TV watchdog groups to have a problem with Tuesday night’s episode of the show, which features two teen couples having sex for the first time. And the actor says he was nervous about the storyline himself when he first heard what “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy had planned for his character, Kurt, and boyfriend Blaine (Darren Criss). “I absolutely expect to hear from (watchdog groups),” Colfer tells “It’s funny, I always go into this instant panic state whenever they tell me about upcoming episodes, because we always do so many delicate situations on the show. But then I get the script and we shoot it, Sebastian (played by Grant Gustin, left) and Blaine (Darren Criss) star in “Glee.” Bracing for a backlash Celebrities Unpleasant surprise: Late Sunday, rapper Drake’snew album, “Take Care,”leaked almost in its entirety on the Internet.
