GMA’s ‘Unlikely Cast’ Leads ABC to Another Win

ABC’s “Good Morning America” has notched another win, topping NBC’s “Today” for the second time in three weeks. Eric Deggans of the Tampa Bay Times takes a look at the morning show ratings race and concludes that “what ails ‘Today’ is something no interview with a controversial celebrity can cure”:

The fact is, ABC has built a team which viewers find appealing in the most unlikely cast. [Robin] Roberts, a former sportscaster, has an engaging chemistry with cohost George Stephanopoulos, the political guy who still seems a little uncomfortable with the lighter moments required of a morning news anchor. In the world of network TV news, where lasting audience shifts take time, GMA has built up a cast of regulars who have forged a morning habit slowly nibbling at NBC’s lead.
