FIRST LOOK: General Hospital Promo! It's Sonny Corinthos Vs. Jerry Jacks! Can The Mobster Save Port Charles?

We knew that GH executive producer and head writer, Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati were planning something big to usher in General Hospital to its new time slot starting on Monday, September 10th.

And today, fans get their first glimpse of what will go down in the high action adventure drama that harkens back to the heyday of GH,  starting the week the  lone ABC soap moves to its new time destination.

In this newly released ABC promo to Entertainment Tonight, it’s Sonny Corinthos who is going to try and take on and take down evil Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche) to save his beloved town of Port Charles.  Daytime Emmy winner Maurice Benard as Sonny states in the sneak peek, “When it comes to my city, my family, I will make sure this monster knows — I’m coming for him!”

Now after the jump take a look at the dramatic promo,  and as you will see,  the location shoot that Valentini was touting on Twitter recently is clearly part of the storyline and the all the action!

So, are you excited to see how this all plays out? Let us know!

I am absolutely in love with Frank and Ron. What they have done to improve the most boring of all the soaps is beyond my wildest dreams. I can hardly wait to see what’s coming.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t take this seriously. This is what Cartooni have planned for a “blockbuster September”? Really? It just seems like even more of the same old, same old garbage/nonsense. Wake me when GH is ready to celebrate its 50th and/or nears its finale. RC and FV are so overrated and I can’t believe how some GH fans/cheerleaders and soap sites like this keep kissing their fannies to the nth degree. Yes, a segment of people who’ve been watching the show the whole time and/or watched OLTL may think that GH’s quality has improved. But while vocal,… Read more »

What a downer you are, Chris! You don’t sound like a true supporter of daytime dramas. While you have the right to your opinion, I must ask you not to spoil things for the rest of us. Many of us here have watched and loved all three of the ABC soaps for decades. We are still hurting over the loss of AMC and OLTL and we are holding on tight to GH as the last remaining soap on this network. Of course, nothing is perfect, but Frank V. and Ron C. HAVE breathed new life into this show, and many… Read more »

We need to be positive about GH…I think the promo was really good..Sonny is doing something good & honest…He really cares what happens to Port Charles… Yes GH quality has improved….RC & FV kept GH on the air longer or it could have been gone to along with AMC &OLTL…Be happy you still have a soap to watch…Time will tell & will have to keep watching and see what happens the wk. of Sept.10…..

Its people like you that are not soap fans.I lost my favorite AMC almos a year ago and I would take it with people off other soaps.I stopped watching GH because of all the mob and freezing Port Charles.Now I’m back to watching it and love it.I didn’t watch OLTL but sure enjoy the peole from there on Gh.GH is fantastic now and has me back ,Frank is doing it justic and making into what a soap should be.I went threw Frons tearing AMC apart with his ideas how it should be done and never gripped or tuned out.I’m a… Read more »

Chris – Frank and Ron have improved GH greatly. The pace is faster and more characters have storylines. I really get sick and tired of all the whiners who don’t seem happy GH is still around. FYI I have been watching GH since the days of Steve/Audrey/Lucille and Jesse/Phil. That’s a very long time. So stop whining and just enjoy GH or stop watching all together!

Sorry, but Mo Mumbles Bernard does nothing for me to be excited about when it comes to GH. Change the show’s name to GM (General Mobsters). Until they actually show the inside of the hospital for more than 30 seconds in an episode, it’s really misleading advertising.

The problem with Cartooni is they can’t come up with an original idea to save their lives. And therefore you can see these storylines coming a mile away. Does anyone really think everyone in PC is going to die? Further, Jason and Sonny once again are the “heroes”. YYYAAAAWWWWNNN. This stuff was boring in 1990; it’s just plain sad now.

I think its great. I love how people say “Ron and Frank haven’t changed anything with GH” when in fact the ratings are ten times better which is why the even get to see a 50th anniversary and GH is way more exciting than any soap that’s on right now. There are 4 soaps left. Let’s support them all! Because the same people who “hate the new GH” are the same people who watch everyday. And further more its not that new, Ron is using the past storylines to drive future storylines which is fantastic. What do people want? First… Read more »

You may love GH, but the facts simply do not support your claim. The ratings are NOT “ten times better” (even if you said that as an exaggeration to make your point). The fact is that despite weekly fluctuations, 8 months into 2012 the ratings have NEVER risen above the point they were last year, when they were at an all-time low. And for the most part, GH is dead-last in virtually every ratins category. Without the 2-headed monster of Cartooni, even DOOL has risen in the ratings since the Olympics. And speaking of the Olympics, all of your soap… Read more »

Me – are you serious? Do you realize that Neilsen is being sued for manipulating ratings for shows in oher countries? For that reason alone the true GH/soap fan, which you are obviously not, should not believe this antiquated ratings system. If you can do better than Frank and Ron by all means submit your storylines to them. Go for it, but don’t be condescending to the real GH fans many who, like myself, have watched GH for almost 50 years. I swear you sound like Brian (I hate soaps) Frons.

Well damn Me if you have left the 70’s why are you even in here posting. What does it matter to you what us 70’s folk do? You should be so busy with your “real” life that you wouldn’t have any time to come in here and take time to post. Go watch your real world shows would ya and stop boring us with your views.

Your facts about ratings are based on Neilsen ratings, right? Well, do you know anyone who actually has Neilsen boxes in their home? And do you know how many of them are in key demographics? This is the problem with ratings……we have no clue who is actually watching ANYTHING, including the Olympics! We only know what people with these boxes are watching…that’s it!

So you still watch GH and you are unhappy with the storylines. Seems if you didn’t like it you wouldn’t watch. Soaps are obviously still important to you cause you took the time to get on this site, click on this link, read these posts, and then respond. Thank you for your jaded but nonetheless support of daytime. Even bad publicity is at least publicity 🙂

WOW! GH hasn’t has a decent action Location shoot (the Carnival in 2010 doesn’t count, it was on the ABC Lot) since Puerto Rico in 1994!

Folks, the ratings prove that GH is NOT must see daily TV for many, many viewers. Not to mention that Cartooni are pulling in lower numbers than Guza managed to have in the ratings. They’ve been in change for 6-7 months and have not moved the ratings needle one iota. GH was only given a reprieve because The Revolution tanked so badly, which was not in ABC’s plans. No matter how some fans feel about GH or how “great” they feel the show is now, the numbers don’t lie. Viewers are steadily leaving GH, especially among the key W18-49 demo.… Read more »

Again, you are basing this on a ratings system that hasn’t worked since the 80’s! That is what needs to change, not storylines for GH or any other show on tv!

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
