''The Revolution'' was the second product of ABC's move to cut its [[SoapOpera soap operas]] in favor of cheaper programming; it premiered on January 16, 2012 as a replacement for ''Series/OneLifeToLive''. Although ''The Chew'', a cooking-oriented talk show that replaced ''Series/AllMyChildren'', was better-received and still airs to this day, ''The Revolution'' was an outright flop -- likely because of the fan revolt that resulted from the cancellation of ''OLTL''. By March, it had lost half its viewership in comparison to the former soap; on April 11, 2012, ABC officially canned the series, and its finale aired on July 6, 2012.

Rather than replace it with a new program for the 2012-13 season, ABC elected to move ''Series/GeneralHospital'' up from its traditional 3:00 p.m. timeslot to 2:00 p.m., and give the 3:00 p.m. hour back to its affiliates. 3 p.m. happened to be the recommended timeslot for a new syndicated Katie Couric talk show, which was produced by Disney and mainly picked up by ABC affiliates. ABC was actually considering cancelling ''GH'' instead and having ''Katie'' as a ''de facto'' replacement, but felt that the the poor reception to ''The Revolution'' and the inevitable revolt that would occur if the network [[LastOfItsKind killed off its last remaining soap opera]] (one which also served as a new home for several ''OLTL'' actors and characters), would likely lead to a PR disaster. The timeslot was briefly filled by ''Good Afternoon America'' (a ''Good Morning America'' spin-off) until the start of the new TV season.

A former Creator/{{ABC}} daytime show; ''The Revolution'' was meant as a health and lifestyle TalkShow aimed towards women, produced by J.D. Roth and hosted by a FiveManBand who covered distinct areas of health, fashion, and decoration. As the deck was stacked against Tim and Ty, the series was primarily focused on health topics; each week, the program focused on a viewer on their own "revolution" -- a process which, in the majority of cases, was weight loss. A progress report was shown daily, and the results were presented on Fridays.

* SpinOff: ''The Revolution'' was ostensibly a take on ''Series/TheBiggestLoser'' (J.D.

Ultimately, the show placed a larger focus on the latter.

''The Revolution'' is an Creator/{{ABC}} talk show combined with reality show specializing in health and lifestyle. The producer is J.D. Roth. The hosts are Tim Gunn (style and fashion topics consultant), Harley Pasternak (fitness trainer), Ty Pennington (designer), Dr. Jennifer Ashton (medical consultant), and Dr. Tiffanie Davis (therapist/relationship expert).

The premise of this show is to improve the quality of life in overweight women. The show mostly focuses on weight loss, but it also shows women trying to work on mental health, style, and home environment. There are also segments on exercise, nutrition, fashion, medicine, and psychology.

The formula consists of women sending videos of themselves to the producers through casting calls to show what they want to change about themselves, with their weight being the number one topic. Off-screen, these women get customized plans in helping to achieve their goals. They later appear on the show and present their progress and accomplishments. Their progress and accomplishments is usually shown in a week-long chronological timeline, and later check on their progress again.

This show aired from January 16 to July 6, 2012 on weekdays.

!!Tropes in this series:
* {{Cancellation}}: This happened to the show in only seven months, due to low ratings.
* CelebrityStar: Toni Braxton and Music/DollyParton appeared on this show.
* CutShort: This show lasted only seven months before it got cancelled. Then again, it is a talk show, so there would have been little to wrap up.
* {{Demographic|s}}: This show is apparently aimed at the women 18-49 targeted demographic.
* RealityShow: This show has some elements of it. Women are essentially competing against themselves in losing weight and improving their well-being.
* {{Spinoff}}: Essentially an attempt to bring ''Series/TheBiggestLoser'' into a weekday format, as the people behind that show also produced this one.
* TalkShow: This is what the show essentially is, and it specializes in health and lifestyle.
