ABC cancels 'Port Charles'

ABC announced Friday that the half-hour daytime soap "Port Charles" will air its final episode on Oct. 3. The show does not air on Pittsburgh's ABC affiliate, WTAE.

"Port Charles" premiered in 1997 as a spin-off of "General Hospital."

Letterman back on Friday

David Letterman is going back on the air Fridays.

After a month of the veteran "Late Show" host turning Friday nights over to guest hosts, Jimmy Fallon's stint this past Friday was going to be the last, spokesman Tom Keaney said.

Tom Green, Tom Arnold and Kelsey Grammer had also filled in for Letterman.

"I've worked since I was 11 years old," Letterman, 56, had said on his CBS show. "And I just feel like it's summer now, I'd like to take a day off."

Oddly, Letterman didn't even get a day off. He usually tapes his Friday shows on Thursday evenings, after taping Thursday's show; so he just left work early during this stretch.

Although ratings in the summer aren't watched as closely as those during the regular TV season, "Tonight" host Jay Leno's lead over Letterman has increased in the past month.
