Tonight on his facebook page, The Young and the Restless’, Kristoff St. John, cleared up the rumors from today’s post below by Sara Bibel, that the Emmy winning actor was rumored on his way out of Genoa City.

St. John had this to say, “To all my peeps out there, this I must share, cuz I know you care; As of right now, today, I am not leaving The Young and The Restless. I love   my daytime home and treasure it.  I love all you and thank you for your beautiful support.”

Earlier today, Sara Bibel of Fancast, had an item that had St. John possibly departing his role on Y&R to take a role in the new comedy pilot by the Wayan Brothers.  In her post, Bibel stated,  “It is unclear at this time whether this would be a short term leave so he could film the project, or a permanent exit from Genoa City. Neil has not had a major storyline on Y&R for a while.

The character’s romance with Ashley fizzled.  But Julia Pace Mitchell has been cast in the new role of Sofia, Tucker’s CFO, a character who seems likely to be a potential love interest for Neil.  St. John’s unexpected departure could alter the storyline.”

General Hospital

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
