AP: ‘Good Afternoon America’ Producers ‘Might Want to Hold on to Their Alarm Clocks’

The debut of any show has the potential to be a little rocky, and yesterday’s “Good Afternoon America” was no exception. In his review, the AP’s David Bauder breaks it down segment-by-segment, noting the “GAA” producers “might want to hold on to their alarm clocks”:

The debut edition of “Good Afternoon America” ended abruptly in mid-anecdote from singer Liza Minnelli, who was being interviewed after performing “New York, New York” in the show’s Times Square studio. Host Lara Spencer interrupted her to wave goodbye.

Minnelli, backed by a band and dancers, performed to tout a new live disc of a 1974 recording. In the interview following, [Josh] Elliott asked her, “What was it like watching Liza Minnelli back then?”

A slightly bewildered Minnelli replied: “I don’t know. I’ve never seen her.”

TVNewser will be on hand for tomorrow’s edition of the show, so look for our story on Thursday.
