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 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.

Sucks for us in eastern time zone.

I just checked and the episode they’re showing today is already online

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!

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

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

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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”—–

YES, agreed!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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)

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.

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.

SAG-AFTRA Strike is Over! Actors Union Reaches Deal with Hollywood Studios

After an historic strike of 118 days, SAG-AFTRA has announced they have approved a tentative agreement with the Hollywood studios.  The strike will officially come to an end at 12:01am on Thursday, November 9th.

The ending marks the longest actors strike against the film and TV studios in history. SAG-AFTRA says that its tentative agreement with the studios is worth more than $1 billion over three years and added that it has “extraordinary scope” and “unprecedented provisions”.

The AMPTP in their own statement heralded that the agreement is, “the biggest contract-on-contract gains in the history of the union” and one that represents a “new paradigm”.  SAG-AFTRA shared that the full details of the agreement will not be provided until it is reviewed by the SAG-AFTRA National Board on Friday.

Some of the deal points reportedly are minimums to increase by 7%, plus streaming participation bonuses. In an email sent out to its membership, SAG-AFTRA shared, “We have arrived at a contract that will enable SAG-AFTRA members from every category to build sustainable careers. Many thousands of performers now and into the future will benefit from this work.”  The union also shared in their memo that the new contract has, “unprecedented provisions for consent and compensation that will protect members from the threat of AI.”

The performers union also thanked the Writers union (WGA) for standing in solidarity with them: “We also thank our union siblings — the workers that power this industry — for the sacrifices they have made while supporting our strike and that of the Writers Guild of America. We stand together in solidarity and will be there for you when you need us. Thank you all for your dedication, your commitment and your solidarity throughout this strike. It is because of YOU that these improvements became possible.”

SAG-AFTRA plans to hold celebrations around the country in their different chapters in the coming days.  With the strike coming to an end, actors are again expected to hit the award show circuits and participate in events leading up to it. During the strike, they were not allowed to promote projects that were from the studios that they appeared in.

Daytime soap operas and their actors were not affected by the shut-down, although many soap actors did stand in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in the picket lines throughout the strike. The soaps, as well as unscripted reality shows, game shows, news shows, and non-primetime programs are all under Netcode contracts and were permitted to keep working on Netcode-affiliated projects.  This contract is not up for renegotiation till July of 2024.

So, happy to hear the SAG-AFTRA strike has come to an end? Looking forward to your favorite primetime shows and films getting back into production as we head into 2024, and the award shows circuit to come alive once again? Comment below.
