Show Summary

Welcome to the Good Morning America program. For ABC, this was a much more successful morning news series than A.M. America, which had lasted the first ten months of 1975. ABC looked at one of its affiliates, WEWS in Cleveland, and admired the station's very successful news/talk series called The Morning Exchange (1972-1999). Network programming president Fred Silverman oversaw ABC's using The Morning Exchange as a model for their new program. Today the show is anchored by Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos. Ginger Zee gives weather reports throughout the morning, Amy Robach does the news, and Lara Spencer does the lifestyle reports. The show is usally in a battle for #1 with rival morning news show "Today" START YOUR DAY GOOD TO GO!

  • Where's the remote?

    6.0
    7/29/15: I agree with so many contributors below. I thought ABC/GMA had finally figured out that Amy Robach is the right fit for the anchor chair when Robin is gone (which seems to be increasingly frequent). But yesterday and today - UGH! As soon as I hear that gravely voice, I reach for the remote! Lara Spencer is NOT anchor material. She belongs on a more entertainment-based (or gossip) type show, or perhaps she is also good on the garage sale show. I just do not care for her personality or her delivery style. Period. I think she thinks she is "all that", but if so, she's one of the few that feel that way. And, she needs to cut that long-dog hair of hers - it is not flattering to her face. Please use Amy when Robin is away (or Cecelia Vega or one of the other professional news women). Lara is just not the person to anchor your show, and if the "powers that be" at ABC don't get it, they must have their heads in the sand!





    I have to agree with the previous writer. Lara Spencer has never been - nor will she ever be - responsible for any of the success GMA has had. ABC can thank Joan Lunden and David Hartman, followed by Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson or the success of GMA. These anchors were/are solid, professional news reporters, and did not spend their time acting goofy or making stupid jokes and pouty lips to the cameras. Lara has never been anything on GMA other than an entertainment (gossip) reporter, and that's where her talent ends. Period. However, if GMA keeps trying to shove her down our throats as an anchor, she WILL be responsible for their crash in the ratings. Amy is right up there with Diane Sawyer. Her demeanor is polished and professional, her voice pleasant, and she exudes the class one would expect of a news anchor. I also like Ginger - who does a great job with the weather. You don't see ABC trying to make her a news anchor tho'. I have been pleased the last couple of days to see Amy sitting next to George (as it should be) in Robin's absence.





    I think it should be called "LIVE! with George, Robin, Amy, Ginger, Michael and Lara" -- to be followed by the other "Live" show :-/. This no longer resembles a morning new show -- it is more like Entertainment This Morning.



    Clearly ABC-GMA is pandering to the 20-something audience. Their morning "news" show has hardly anything to do with news or what's going on in the world - and way more to do with celebrities, gossip, fashion and rap music (which is not really "music", but more of a blathering of words at a fast pace that you cannot understand). This is what GMA is all about. I wouldn't be surprised to see them start a slate of "celebrity anchors" - perhaps Kim Kartrashian would be a good fit for them! In any case, if you would like to see a calmer, more balanced morning news show I would suggest Today, CBS This Morning or CNN. Their formats are much calmer than GMA, their anchors are more polished and professional, and you don't have to put up with the gravel-voiced Lara Spencer (who the producers of GMA keep trying to shove down our throats as an anchor). Amy - if I were you I would extricate yourself from this pathetic excuse for a morning news show and align yourself with something worthy of your professionalism and poise. You and George are too good for GMA.



    Wonderful to see Amy Robach sitting in the anchor chair next to George this morning. A polished and professional news team Refreshing!



    Finally GMA - an anchor team worth watching! I loved seeing Amy and David together this morning! They are poised and professional, and really elevate the status of your show. Amy is an anchor moving up along the lines of Diane Sawyer - and David, well, what more can you say than perfect - Mr. World News Tonight! Thanks for finally giving us a team worth watching. I agree with the previous reviewer - a breath of fresh air without Lara Spencer oogling the cameras.moreless
  • Lara Spencer AGAIN in Robin's ON GMA????????

    9.0
    After seeing Amy in Robin's chair the last couple of times she has been out, I thought for sure GMA and ABC finally came to their senses and decided not to let Lara Spencer make an idiot out of herself by putting her in that chair with her head cocking back and forth and panning for the camera and showing that she is nothing but a pop news does not belong as a co-anchor at all, but this week, 7/29/15, we are once again subjected to her immature when does this woman's contract run should go get her own antique buying show or go back to celebrity is not suited for the news or co the voice is so GMA make the right choice and put Amy where she belongs when Robin is the co anchor Spencer is sooooooo anoying..........moreless
  • Can ABC really put Lara Spencer next to George S. and not expect George to leave?

    4.5
    I usually have to leave the room whenever Lara is on camera for a "story". Putting her name on the shows opening banner is such an insult to Robin and George. What or who is she doing to deserve even a place on the show much less a banner spot? Amy is so much more polished and pleasant. Please ABC, put Lara back in her slot as a filler program/junk shopping show! She obviously offends so many people you really should act on your viewers reactions .moreless
  • Lara!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Arghhhhh!!!!!!!!

    1.0


    When is Lara Spencer's contract up? I am a woman and all for equality but she does not do a good job at all! Too much attempting to look sexy for the camera. She hogs interviews and I have noticed that although she is skinny, she takes up more space at the desk by spreading her arms and gripping the desk edge. To top it off, she thinks she is funny with her silly puns. I think Dan Harris should be considered as a viable replacement for her. I am not saying she is an unattractive person.

    She is just not the sexpot she thinks she is. Morning news programs can be informative as well as entertaining. Maybe Lara could move to Access Hollywood or ET or one of those other "star studded" shows.moreless
  • LARA?????????????????

    1.0
    I have been watching this show forever. PLEASE, PLEASE get Lara out of the news seat. If you need someone to fill in, let it be Amy, she is polished, poised and beautiful and doesn't need to keep looking at the camera and making strange faces. Lara has a personality adjustment when she sits next to George. She doesn't have the experience and is not the right person to deliver serious news, it just comes out all wrong. I can't understand the producers of this show, get her out of that chair NOW.moreless
