ABC daytime show ‘Revolution’ gets cut Q. Is there any chance “The Revolution” might be back? I like the hosts, Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer, when they’re on “Good Morning America,” but “Good Afternoon America” is a bit too much of the entertainment portion of the news. A. This question refers not to the NBC series “Revolution,” which was promoted mercilessly during coverage of the Olympics, but the daytime show ABC tried out after jettisoning a couple of its daytime soaps. The lifestyle series did not appeal to viewers, and was dropped in July in favor of a short run for “Good Afternoon America.” Speaking of which ... Q. I was surprised to read in your mailbag that come Sept. 10 I will not be able to see “Good Afternoon America.” You said that the soap opera “General Hospital” will be at that time. Why? Where will “Good Afternoon America” be in the lineup?



A. “GAA” was announced as a nine-week series, basically filling the 2 p.m. weekday time slot after the demise of “The Revolution,” but only until “General Hospital” moves into it. (“GH” is being moved to make a place for Katie Couric’s new series, which will air at 3 p.m. weekdays on many ABC stations.) But while “GAA’s” departure in September was preordained, ABC has reportedly considered bringing it back down the road — assuming the network is happy with “GAA’s” performance and something else falls by the wayside.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t get

stressed out about the idea of following your intuition by wondering which internal voice is the right one. Intuition often comes in the form of curiosity or interest. Follow that, and you’ll be psychically connected. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Beware of unguarded sharing. You won’t trust those who give too much information, and others won’t trust you if you tell stories that aren’t yours to tell. Loose lips sink ships.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will sense

that there is absolutely nothing to be gained by trying to be liked and selfless. You’ll take care of your own needs and pursue what delights you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have been neglecting what you want, afraid of making others uncomfortable. What if you don’t ask for what’s reasonable? What if you ask for more than you think you deserve? You just might get it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Do you have the sense that someone is messing with you? It might help you to pretend like this person is playing the kind of elaborate game that makes life worth living. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be strongly protective of your loved ones

and will, in your own calm, controlled way, leap to their defense given the least provocation. Do the same for yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though the demands on you are not loud or harsh, they are still abundant. So be as generous and helpful as you want to be, but also know where to draw the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For all of your resistance to the work, you still get it done. So why resist it at all? Submit to the inevitable, and you just might find that you’re actually enjoying it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some days, the hours run like a low-grade fever, irritating in their development; everything makes you mad. Moods like that are signals that it’s time to rest.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you

are very clear about why you want to do something, your choices become more obvious. Just rule out everything that goes against your “why.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your inner drive will be stoked by external events that seem to rally you forward. The attention you get is a reward in itself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). By reading about and experiencing the company of people who are different from you, you get more clarity about who you are. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 7). You’ll get another chance at a dream that’s not been realized. You’ll be considerably more creative in October. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 23, 15 and 19.
