‘General Hospital’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and other ABC Shows Pause Return to Production During Omicron Surge

Photo: ABC

The post-holiday returns of several ABC shows has been delayed due to the ongoing Covid-19 surge from the Omicron variant.

TV Line is reporting on Wednesday that Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie and Station 19, as well as General Hospital have delayed a return to production.

According to the item, GH delayed its return to production from this week, and pushed it until next week.

The Rookie has yet to determine when they will return.

Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 were originally scheduled to return Monday January 10th, but are now slated to come back on Wednesday the 12th.

All of these production re-starts are, of course, pending more of a surge as the situation can be day-to-day.

The production pause was out of an abundance of caution, not because of any specific outbreaks related to any of the shows.

No word yet, how the surge may affect production on the other network series from NBC, CBS and the CW, etc.

If things hold, it won’t be much time difference from the original production re-starts for these shows.

So, glad to know the ABC shows are taking precautions before they return to work? Comment below.

Vaccines aren’t needed in Hell. We’re immortal down here, so a virus ain’t going to do anything to you.

The vaccine mandate is a Disney corporate policy. GH and ABC cannot override that.

Satan -here in the real world vaccine mandates is Disney Corporate policy. Neither GH nor ABC has the power to not follow that policy. Those actors who refuse to go along lose out big time.

Don’t know how old this news is but I’ve already seen the new Rookie last Sunday and S.W.A,T and more ths week. I live in So.Cal, maybe there’s a difference but I doubt it.

I wish YnR would pause production and return with a new E.P and headwriter, Morina and Griffith are tragic. No originality, no vision and the show looks and sounds budget.

So right, Damien. Billy’s pathetic, childish vendetta against Adam is going on, what, eight years now or more. He really thinks HE should run Newman Media? How many companies can he run into the ground and then blame everyone else? I’m SO tired of these repetitive stories. They’re even teasing a Nick & Sharon reunion! Really?

Well, I guess Steve and Ingo are kind of smiling right now. BUT, I dont want to get into a vaccination debate. I have a positive idea with a bit of “Tongue in Cheek” mixed in. Danny Boaz was released from Y&R. He played Chance. Him and Ingo look a bit alike. Why not cast Danny in a new role as the next Jax ONLY call him VAX! Take a little swing at Ingo. Ha ha ha! But seriously, Jax and Jerry could have another sibling floating around out there and Danny Boaz would fit the bill as the new… Read more »

I was thinking Danny could be a recast Lucky. I think they are close in age.

Lucky always had that rogue look to him like Luke. Danny is to much of a pretty boy!

This soap is over the top. So even the fully vaccinated GH cast is getting COVID?? Steve and Ingo are gone so they sure didn’t give it to them. So is GH going to fire every vaccinated actor who contracts COVID?

Mr. Biden and his staff are considering shifting gears and treating the patient and not so much putting an emphasis on the VAX. Meaning, he wants to focus on diluting Omicron to a point where it is a flu-like treatment and mostly treated OTC instead of gumming up hospitals.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
