Spencer Christian[edit]

Shouldn't Spencer Christian be addressed at least a little more? At least a mention of his tenure there? HarleyAcres 19:37, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

Skyrocket?[edit]

I think the article is embellishing things a little. I mean, could we use another adjective other than "skyrocket" when it comes to ratings? Mike H 11:04, Oct 25, 2004 (UTC)

A.M. American Link[edit]

The A.M. America link sends you right back to the GMA article. Was there supposed to be a separate article regaring A.M. America? --Bdj95 06:54, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Length speculation[edit]

I have found no evidence that ABC plans to increase this show to three hours, all I have found is some vague speculation by viewers, but I work for an ABC affiliate and on the ABC intranet there is no talk of this increase... any thoughts?--Robert Beck 17:55, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Broadcasting[edit]

Could the article include more info about broadcasting? What time is it being aired on the west and east coast? Do they record the show twice (one east coast and one west coast version)? or is it recorded only once? If it is recorded once, is it being shown at the same time as the west coast (e.g. If it records at 7:00 AM EST is it being shown at 4:00 AM PST?) or does the west coast see the same broadcast only 3 hours later (e.g. West coast sees it at 7:00 AM PST even though it was recorded at 4:00 AM PST). If the west coast is shown a recording from 3 hours ago, does anything special happen when there is breaking news (such as switching to a live feed or showing a different show that can handle live broadcasts to the west coast)? Thanks! Eags 15:29, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

I completely agree, some people could really find that info useful. 71.162.160.74 12:18, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

HDTV[edit]

On January 20, 2005, ABC News covered the Presidential Inauguration in High Definition (GMA included). This predates the listed HD premiere by over ten months. MMetro 08:23, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Morning Show Banner[edit]

Please note, I have removed the morning show banner from the article. It seems to be getting messed with a lot currently, with absolutely no discussion, and all the revisions have broken it so that it was floating in the middle of this article's text. I tried overriding it with code in this article to no avail. I've left a note on the template's talk page. Meanwhile, please don't add it back unless it has been fixed or you can force it to be positioned correctly, under the info box and not on top of any article text. Thanks AnmaFinotera 00:24, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Article Assessment[edit]

As requested here, I've assessed the article. I've rated this article at Start Class.due to the severe lacking in citations. It is also missing some important sections, including critical response and production details (beyond just a list of hosts and contributers.

I rated this article's importance as low as it is one of many morning shows available and offers nothing unique or extraordinary to the format. AnmaFinotera 00:24, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Good Morning America Weekend Edition merge[edit]

Based on how much content is on the Good Morning America Weekend Edition article, I feel that article should be merged into this article since that article is not large enough for its own article. Also, the weekend Good Morning America is the same television show as the weekday Good Morning America. —Mythdon (talkcontribs) 00:04, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Done. ViperSnake151  Talk  15:53, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Ratings: 2011 Royal Wedding[edit]

There should be a ratings section...In its regular 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. time period ABC’s “Good Morning America,” anchored live by Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, covering the Royal Wedding from Buckingham Palace, attracted 8.65 million Total Viewers (Source: The Nielsen Company (Live + Same Day Fast Affiliate Ratings) – 4/29/11) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.26.21.217 (talk) 22:32, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

Please include the section where there is criticism, due to its gossip fare. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.134.67.149 (talk) 21:47, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
