Photo: ABC

Finally, good news GH fans! Beginning today on Wednesday January 29th, ABC will begin to resume airing new episodes on on broadcast television in their West Coast territories and areas not impacted by ABC News’ live coverage of the President Donald Trump Senate impeachment trial.

For those whose viewing is still affected by the Senate impeachment trial, ABC is still providing additional opportunities to keep caught up.

Full episodes will be available for viewers each day on ABC.com and the ABC app at 8:00 p.m. EST. The day after episodes air, fans can also watch on Hulu or On Demand.

This current viewing solution during the trial will continue this way until programming can returns to its normal schedule for all.

So make sure to start tuning back in to General Hospital! So, glad to hear there are now ways to watch new episodes of the action in Port Charles? Comment below.

        I just checked and it’s the exact same one that it’s been showing so it’s not new it’s still showing the one where the shooting breaks out

      Totally. I wish they had just left it. It’s not like we’ll die without it lol. And It’s not fair for those who can’t see and don’t want to watch the next day or online.

      Amen to that!!!!!!

      And Central! We won’t get real time episodes either.
      I hate watching on the web, app or on demand because I have to sit through the commercials!

    • Mary Neal

      Why couldn’t it be watched the same night on ABC.COM Instead of the day after, EVERYONE will be caught up..IMO

      so unfair for those on the east coast — all coasts should air at the same time!!!!! ABC is making a big mistake

      • D. G. HICKS

        This is so unfair!! Why don’t they just keep the trial on the News Stations for people that want to watch it??!!

    I’m in Ontario, Canada. How can we see new episodes of GH? Canadians can’t access ABC shows online. If anyone knows, please let me know.

      In Winnipeg I watch it online on CityTV

      • Trish

        January 30, 2020 at 1:23 pm

        Are you getting the episodes after the shooting? That’s the last episode I saw in Ontario last week.

      • Trish

        January 30, 2020 at 3:39 pm

        City Tv showed a new episode today in Ontario. Good news!

    The announcement still seems a little bit vague as to what will actually go out over the air, but if they allow viewing on the abc.com website/app without the fascist cable company paywall, that’s a fair solution. Especially for those of us who don’t watch at the usual broadcast time anyway.

    Considering the episodes are ALREADY 8 days late, there’s no need for the cable oligopoly greed to rear its ugly head here.

    UPDATE: I’ve been told that the 1/21 episode of GH aired today on HellCable in the normal time slot. So let’s hope this is the practice for the rest of the week.

    online is better than not at all

      Amen to that.

    thank god for Hulu and iTunes, I can’t wait to start watching later today.

    Hi, I’m from Canada, I tuned in today and it was a repeat again. So frustrating. Hopefully tomorrow it will be a new one.

    • Satan

      January 30, 2020 at 9:11 am

      You will see a new episode on Friday. ABC still has to catch up with the two episodes aired in Canada last week. So on Friday, everybody’s back on the same page again.

    I was about to cancel my Hulu! Why pay for GH on Hulu, if I’m not getting the service I wanted in the first place. Anything else is optional. Back to my favorite Day time show.

    January 29, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    My understanding is ABC will
    Also air the show at 2:37 AM on the east coast until the impeachment trial is over!

    There’s no super couple that is “must see“ and that pulls me in, like a Sonny & Brenda, or Frisco & Felicia. There is no romance or “love in the afternoon.” Carson is as boring as watching paint dry. Jasam talks in a monotone about the same boring things. Putrid Peter is unwatchable and has zero chemistry with Maxie. The show is unwatchable.

    • Soaphound

      January 30, 2020 at 2:24 pm

      Oh, DMRR, it gets worse. Now we have Brando Corbin, presumed son of Gladys, joining the foray. Gladys?! We need this? Granted, the actor is very handsome. But I want Drew and Hayden back and less of YET ANOTHER Corinthos-centric yarn. Peter? Flush him.

      • DMRR

        January 30, 2020 at 4:42 pm

        You can’t be serious?!? Gladys is so awkward and just pops up, randomly. Who is writing this drivel?

    • Celia

      February 1, 2020 at 2:34 pm

      Sam: Combination of broken monotone utterings and whispered cat-mews, DMRR….can barely follow what she’s whimpering about. I thought Sam was this unconquerable , sleek sleuth; not, “SOS”, maiden in distress….or should I say; Matron?!?!
      Sonny and Brenda a super couple? I wasn’t watching GH at that time. Did Sonny always have THE Napoleonic Syndrome?
      PS—I’ve been catching up on utube, when possible.

      • DMRR

        February 1, 2020 at 7:56 pm

        Sam is one of the weakest, most boring characters, IMO. I grew-up watching S & B in the 90’s. I didn’t like Brenda’s last return, though. It was awkward, and a horrible story.

        • Celia

          February 1, 2020 at 8:25 pm

          TPTB have not aged Sam ( mentally, that is)—-I do believe that’s one of the reasons she is so “ineffective”.
          I consider the character neither interesting nor alluring. I’ve always been of the opinion that the best person to judge a female character ( or women in general) is another woman.
          No charisma……Plus, paired with Burton? The most boring couple—-
          I can’t wait for Nikolas and Ava getting it “together”—–

          • DMRR

            February 2, 2020 at 8:37 am

            YES, agreed!

      • Soaphound

        February 1, 2020 at 8:44 pm

        My word, Celia, how can viewers be invested in JaSam? Two non-communicators who’ve made staring an Olympic sport. Sam was more tolerable with darling Drew. Where, oh where are Drew and Hayden? Instead we have Gladys and Brando? WHO CARES about these people? Meanwhile, Franco, Elizabeth, Cameron, Anna, Tracy, Lucas, even Julian are adrift and that dreadful Peter. I’m reminded of Katharine Hepburn’s line from ON GOLDEN POND: “Bore, bore, bore!” At least Maura West is keeping me tuned in… she’s having a field day with sexy Nikolas.

    What about Nova Scotia Canada.

    • Satan

      January 30, 2020 at 12:39 pm

      CityTV will air a new episode on Friday. Right now they’re waiting for ABC to “catch up” with the episodes that were shown in Canada last week.

  11. Davy

    January 30, 2020 at 12:25 pm

    Try googling your local abc station and general hospital. I did this and found my station is airing gh at 2:30 am. I think other stations are doing this also. Now I can dvr it and zip through the endless commercials.

  12. Sharon

    January 30, 2020 at 12:44 pm

    I’m in Virginia Beach and really over my favorite show (GH) being pre-empted! Amen for Hulu! I feel bad for the people in our time zone that don’t have access to a computer or a Hulu account. Hopefully this circus that is basically being forced upon us on every network will be over soon.

  13. Soaphound

    January 30, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    I’m in California and we had a new episode today, Thursday January 30. Now we have a new lady detective in Brooklyn, and the arrival of… wait for it… Brando Corbin, possibly son of…. wait for it…. Gladys. The actor is hot, but all these Sonny stories leave me cold. What’s next? A long lost sister of Peter the not-so-great? Oy vey!

    • Satan

      January 30, 2020 at 7:42 pm

      Heiny already has a sister. Remember Britch??(She’s not likely to come back soon though, as she just landed a prime time gig somewhere)

    • Celia

      February 1, 2020 at 8:13 pm

      LOL, Soaphound—-or, by soaps’ devine intervention, Dev is, in fact, really Brando’s son? Brando?? What kind of name is that? Gladys must have been a Marlon-fan.
      There must be a reason why Dev and Sonny came “together” in the first place. I had said as much at the outset—there’s a link there.
      All these comings and goings—-soon enough we’ll be regaled with a coronavirus storyline.

  14. David

    January 30, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    It is airing here in Boston late night either 2:37AM or 3:07AM the station said it will vary which isnt great but at least can watch it and at least its also available online and via on demand as well

    I watch GH on Hulu normally and have for the past several years, so this is great news! It’s long overdue from ABC. They should have had this plan in place from the beginning, instead of leaving GH viewers in the lurch. It’s not like anybody didn’t know for a long time that the impeachment hearings were coming. It will take a little while, but eventually everyone will get caught up, regardless of how and where you watch the show. Glad GH is back, it’s been really good over the past few months, in my opinion.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,
