Action News is expanding, both on 6abc and PHL17! Starting September 8th, Action News at Noon grows to one hour. The move is part of the new afternoon lineup on Philadelphia’s most watched television station. Following Action News, The Chew remains in the same timeslot. Then at 2pm, it’s time to play Who Wants to be a Millionaire, with new host Terry Crews. At 2:30p is America’s favorite quiz show, Daytime Jeopardy!. And returning to its original 3p timeslot is General Hospital.
