Courtesy/ABC

There was great ratings news to share today via an official press release from ABC!

After the ratings for the week of June 2nd to June 6th, General Hospital posted the biggest year to year gains of any program in daytime in Total Viewers (+24% – 3.1 million vs. 2.5 million) and of any daytime drama in Women 18-34 (+24% – 216,000 vs. 174,000), Women 18-49 (+22% – 680,000 vs. 557,000) and Women 25-54 (+20% – 909,000 vs. 757,000)!

General Hospital ranked as the week’s #1 program in daytime among Women 18-49 (680,000/1.1 rating – tied on rating) and placed an ultra-competitive #2 in Women 25-54 (909,000/1.5 rating), rising to 8-week highs in the target demos – since week of 4/7/14.

Also impressive, GH spiked to a 21-week high in Total Viewers (3.1 million) – since week of 1/6/14 – with the week placing among the series’ Top 5 weeks in nearly 6-and-a-half years (dates back to 1/28/08).

Congratulations to the hard working men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes of the ABC daytime drama!

So, if you are a fan of General Hospital what do you think of the impressive numbers and year to year increase?   Share your thoughts below!

CONGRATS!! GH!

The staff at GH are doing an awesome job..
All their efforts have paid off in a huge way..

I predict;

Y&R will be eating GH dust, sooner than later .. 🙂

((the sponsors who mainly bring us our soaps care mostly about the demo numbers, and GH has them ..))

Yeah, great job. I love the PR spin by ABC. GH is up 24% from this time last year when it had only 2.5 million viewers. Anyone remember what happened this time last year? The OLTL 3 came back, a complete disaster replete with relish stories and DVD’s, and the ratings plummeted. So RC/FV and company drive the ratings down a few hundred thousand viewers, and a year later they rebound from their own mess, and it’s a huge gain. OK.

I assume some of the increase is curiosity for Michelle Stafford and some people migrating from Y&R to check it out. The test will be if they stick around.

But be prepared for ABC press releases just like this one throughout the summer. Last June-August, the bad OLTL3 Franco nonsense induced ratings continued for months, so they are bound to be higher this June -August. Nice spin guys.

And again, you are wrong about the demos when it come to daytime. There just isn’t enough in the raw numbers. Being number one 18-49 with only 680,000 does not command high ad rates. Watch the commercials, they are dominated by ads for menopause cream, wrinkle cream, cholesterol medicine, joint medication and products from Kraft, P&G and General Mills that pay the lowest ad rates of all advertisers. Sponsors looking for younger audiences, (movies, telecom, financial, auto etc) .are not flocking to daytime or paying high ad rates. It is all spin.

The only spin here is coming from you, AJQ, or GH50, or whatever name you’re going by this week. GH is doing great and you can’t stand it, cause it shoots a big hole in your spin that the show is going down the tubes. “RIP GH”, wasn’t that what you wrote a few weeks back? LOL, GH couldn’t be healthier!

I see GH50 or should I say AJQ cannot handle when there is good news for GH. Keep on crying, ABC has no reason to spin PR. If they were not happy with the numbers they simply would not send out a release but hey if it makes you happy to post your hate go for it.

Aww snap. You got served!

Evan, if you can’t tolerate any statements/opinions that are less than 100% positive about GH without being rude in return, then I suggest that you go somewhere else or do something else with your free time. This is not a GH-cheerleader thread, and AJQ above has every right to express himself here. Oh yeah, this commenter did something terrible: He actually had the audacity to not gush about how wonderful GH is or kiss Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini’s behinds!

Yes, all things considered, GH is doing fairly well in the ratings now, especially considering how things looked for the show 2-3 years ago, and Ron and Frank deserve credit in that regard for steadying the ship in the big picture.

But you do have to take these network press releases with a grain of salt often because there’s so much spin that you could get dizzy. This was in fact the time last year when GH was dominated by the utter nonsense of the OLTL3 returning and thus, ratings plummeted shortly after the 50th anniversary. The show has simply gotten back to the levels before that sharp drop, thus making the increase larger from last year than it would have been otherwise had it remained more steady from last spring into summer.

Look, it’s perfectly fine to disagree with someone, but I don’t think it’s too much too ask to do it in a respectful way. I mean, in the grand scheme of things, we’re talking about a TV show, for crying out loud.

Hey Evan, GH50 here, If someone else is using some of my opinions or former ideas and content, good for them. You seem to think you’re very smart, trying to make a connection and imply that only one person can have the same views, but if you can quote directly from one of my previous posts, then I guess someone else can too, makes sense right?

Thanks for also twisting a quote of mine. When I said “RIP GH” I was talking mainly about the quality of the show. It was a post about Nina and the need to bring Michelle Stafford on to try and boost ratings because people were tuning out. And guess what, the week we are talking about. June 2-6, where there was a ratings spike, is MS’s first week. So I guess I was right. Here’s my actual post.

“It’s just so ridiculous, this whole Westbourne.Obrecht insta-nonsense. This should be GH and it just isn’t anymore. Aside from this being an attempt to establish an RC/FV created family as the core of the show, a show that had existed for 49 years before these two got their hands on it, the story and promo is such a desperate attempt to lure Y&R viewers with an actress they know because fans are tuning out due to how bad the quality is. If they come, they won’t stick around long so then there will need to be another stunt, maybe a Ricky Martin cameo, to try and prop the ratings for a few weeks.

RIP GH. It was great knowing you. You were murdered due to a callous disregard and lack of respect for a once brilliant institution. The weapons: a lack of talent and imagination. My thoughts are with you and your fans.”

So there you have it. Ratings are up with some coming for Stafford, like I predicted. The quality of the show is still awful. It’s still all plot with tons of holes and no character development. And let’s see if these people stay. Let’s see if the ratings stay at 3.1 million even a week later,the week of June 9. Let’s see how long they stay there.

As to your point about GH doing great and I can’t stand it, not true. First it really isn’t doing “Great” and I’m a fan. I post on sites like this to air my views and I hope that If I along with enough people point out out flaws and dissatisfaction, maybe people at the show will listen and alter some things.

But thanks for your input. @AJQ feel free to agree with me any time and even quote from me, just like Evan was able to do. And Evan, you can go back to whoever you report to and tell them you’re doing your job working the boards for them.

You are right AJQ, but I don’t think anyone is really paying attention to the actual numbers, other than us. GH has 216k in the 18-34 age group, 680k in the 18-49 demo, and that’s a good thing?? It is an improvement over last year’s ratings for Cartini, but there is no way to spin less than a million viewers in the key demos as a step up for GH. General Hospital stayed on the air because of the numbers it drew in these demos, usually making up half or two thirds of the total viewers. Like you said, the ads for the show aren’t bringing in the big money to pay salaries and overhead.

David, the way I responded to Evan above goes for you too. If you cannot tolerate someone posting a comment that is the slightest bit negative or critical about anything related to GH without being rude in return, then I suggest that you get off this thread right now.

If you truly think that any commenter who conveys any bit of constructive criticism about the show or analyzes the ratings numbers in a less than 100% gushing way is spewing “hate” about GH, then YOU are paranoid and YOU’RE the one with the problem, not anyone else. I’m sure many of these people have watched regularly for a long time, and they’re entitled to express themselves however they choose to without you or anyone else stepping on them.

Again, it’s fine to disagree on things and debate back and forth. But if you’re incapable of doing it in a respectful way, then you have no business being on here. Geez, it’s a TV show!

Hey Nick, did I miss where you were elected the policeman for this page? Where do you get off telling people to stop posting here? There’s only one man that can do that, his name is Michael Fairman, and he runs the site. You talk about other posters being disrespectful and rude, and here you are doing the same thing that you accuse others of. Seems to me like you’re the one that has the problem here, not anyone else.

@GH50/AJQ: That was a very clever line about me going back to who I report to and working the boards, trying to imply that I work for ABC or GH. Lol, I wish I had a great job like that. Sadly, I don’t. But I’ll be sure and go report back to my boss at the office I work at here in New Jersey. Nice try, though.

Dear Evan and David:
Having read many of GH50’s posts, I developed an ear for his/her tone of voice. AJQ has a different narrative voice. Moreover, it’s not like ALQ wrote anything insulting or outlandish so why would GH50 bother changing names in order to fool people? Finally, GH50 strikes me as the kind of person who doesn’t need to resort to changing names in order to make an assertion.
The one thing these two commentators have in common is they make a lot of sense.

Hey Nick (or whoever you choose to call yourself),

Don’t you ever get tired of repeating yourself after 3 years now? Just take your anti-soap agenda, and go home will you?

Hey Troy,

No sorry, I won’t “go home”. Don’t give me orders. Why should I, simply because YOU don’t like that I didn’t post cheerleader-type comments? This is a free country and a public board. Don’t YOU ever get tired of spouting the same old, tired, (dead-wrong) nonsense/garbage ad-nausem after three years now and exposing yourself everywhere as a complete buffoon?? It must be a gift. Well, we’re beyond tired of your pathetic act on these sites, so it works both ways.

In case you’re unaware, in this world and especially on Internet boards like this, you’ll find commenters with different opinions. If that bothers you and you can’t disagree like a normal person, tough. Your viewpoints are NOT the only ones that exist out there. If you truly believe that any person who makes even the slightest critical/negative comment about GH or soaps in general has an “anti-soap agenda” (LOL) then you truly are paranoid and need help. I didn’t realize that someone had to provide gushing praise in every way or else they’re not a real fan. You desperately need to grow up, man.

To other commenters posting here- Sorry folks, but “Troy Turner” has long had this coming to him. He keeps popping up on numerous soap threads and acting like a jerk, attacking people who present different opinions than his, calling them names, and giving them childish labels like you see above.

Well, Troy the boy, maybe Nick wouldn’t have to keep repeating himself if people didn’t resort to name calling or other sophomoric antics when someone dares to voice a critical opinion about GH. I for one think Nick the Knife rocks, and he is absolutely right on here.

Nick,

It just galls you that I (and others) can see through your anti-soap agenda, doesn’t it? You’re the one that’s been chasing soap lovers all over the Internet for the last 3 years trying to stifle soap lovers-when YOU are the one that’s been proven wrong at every turn. The old saying goes “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, everyone is NOT entitled to their own facts.” Face it, your facts and agenda are wrong. Give it up, and go home

Two Words…Michelle Stafford

Michelle Stafford was probably part of it but there was also a lot of other stuff going on as well.

SO proud to be a General Hospital fan! Not just because of this impressive achievement and their growing numbers, but because of the quality of the show. This past year has been the best it’s been in YEARS and I love watching it every day. Is every storyline, every choice, perfect? No, no soap or primetime show is, but the majority, the show as a whole? The strong dialogue, the action, the drama, the rumor, the romance, the twists and turns? The amazing acting, the returning actors, the use of the ensemble cast? It’s all been brilliant and I love it. Great job to Frank Valentini, Ron Carlivati, all the writers, producers, and crew members, and, of course, the very talented cast, thank you! 🙂

Im glad the ratings are good but im also a bit suprised…im still watching and find it sometimes entertaing but the writing is often confusing and dumb. Anna and Jordan should not be seen discussing the mob in a public park where they can easily be seen, how and why did Rafe suddenly become a drug addict and where has he been all this time, the babys death did bring some grim realism to GH but it wasnt well acted and the baby looked too fake(yeah, i know they couldnt use a real baby), the hitman leaving a room full of witnesses didnt seem right to me, and yes i know he was only to shoot Lucas as a warning to Julian, will Lulu ever see a picture of Harry and realize he is the same man with Fluke which would put her life in danger: maybe she gets pregnant, but miscarries(since gh loves these kind of stories) while confronting Fluke about Harry instead of being smart and telling Dante but this stupid cop gives out to much police info to Lulu which doesnt ring true, T.J. is angry believing his mother is involved in criminal activities but is ok with foster dad Suan who is a hitman for Sonny, Jordan just doesnt seem like an undercover agent: she also looks like Michelle Obama, why was the body of the dead hit man taken to the hospitals 10th floor…is this where the emergency room and morgue located?…Ava killing Connie was pointless since Julians identity became known was no big deal, what happen to Lucys business she was planning, how was Luke not found at Miscavige…wasnt the place thoroughly searched after Scott/FLuke were found and after Heathers numerous escapes ect, Sonny calling Ava a lying mouth and a murderer…what does that make him, how did Nina know to go to Dannys birthday at the park and got around PC so well…is she really crippled…she seems like a volcano ready to erupt but im not sure yet if i like this character or not…Alexis too quick to judge Ric but becomes blind around Julian…Alexis and Tracy need to join the stupid, blinded by love club…jmho!!!

You got a problem with Jordan looking like Michelle Obama?

No…i have no problem with her looking like Mrs.Obama…i was just commenting on her resembalance…i just feel she doesnt act like a real undercover agent…which i have a problem with…my family voted for Obama!!!

Thanks for clarifying that this in the only assessment you made in your comment that you don’t have a problem with. I thought the same thing, there was a moment when the drug bust went down on the pier that Jordan looked identical to the FLOTUS.

The only way Y&R recovers is to bring back Michael Muhney. Thats it! Viewers of Y&R are pissed. Some I would think are peaking at GH since they snagged Michelle Stafford. Go GH and please write good stories with our veteran actors and include the Q’s!

It’s all Maura West’s fault. Damn her for gluing my eyes to the screen every time Ava appears! What she said in her recent TV Guide interview is right. The writers pack each episode with so much action and plot development that no viewer can afford to miss a single episode. Congratulations to all. Fifty-one years and still going strong!

when will the network programming wizards take notice?

I agree with su0000, GH is doing an awesome job! There have been so many high points throughout the last few years and I thank RV, RC, the extremely talented cast and crew, and even those in the offices for working so hard to make this the best show possible.

Is there room for improvement? Of course. But day after day, year after year, I am so happy to be watching GH and the fantastic show they all work so hard to present us, the viewers.

I wish them continued success!!!

Great news!!! CONGRATS to the cast and crew and for us fan for supporting the show.

I love the way networks come out all giddy with press releases when their programs show great ratings/gain, yet NOT one of the 3 networks will broadcast the Emmy awards either in primetime or even in daytime, especially CBS and ABC, to SHOW their support for their Daytime line up!!!

Very excited for GH. 🙂

With Frank C.@the helm, and Ron as head writer the show has been GREAT.

Congrats GH. Hiring Michelle Stafford was worth it

And it’s been a wise financial decision, too. They only have to pay her in animal parts.

Awesome! GH has been my #1 soap for over 30 years!

Congratulations !!!!! I am so happy for everyone at GH (and for all of us – the fans, as well). Going from “almost” extinction to being on top of their game, and topping the ratings charts in important categories – WAY TO GO, and kudos to everyone in front of, and behind the cameras!!!!! Here’s to many more great years of incredible stories!!!!!

TV Guide’s Michael Logan just tweeted that Billy Miller is going to General Hospital and it’s a done deal. Jill Farren Phelps must be crapping in her diapers. Go GH.

GH continues to collect all the Y&R talent too! BM is apparently heading that way. The gains will keep on coming

Congrats GH cast and crew!!! 🙂 The best soap opera 🙂

Very happy to see the constant improvement in the ratings and numbers like this. You see all the complaining but the constant improvement in numbers and ABC’s press releases prove that to the majority of the audience(i.e. the non internet posters) they are happy with the show. Keep it up Ron/Frnak, cast and crew

SOOOO VERY WELL DESERVED. NO BETTER SOAP AROUND. THEY WERE ROBBERIES BY THE EMMY’S, WHAT A JOKE !!!

from abc ???

How about that Mr Frons? Not so smart to say that soaps are no longer popular or profitable. Congrats to GH but a big mistake by the Academy to give a nomination to OLTL over GH.

yah.. I do not understand that..
GH has doubled its’ viewers, people are tweeter trending it, fans are excited, GH has arisen and arrived and is breathing down the neck of Y&R, yet it was shunned by the emmy judges..
makes no sense, not at all..

To paraphrase Mark Twain-the rumors of GH’S death have been GREATLY exaggerated

Since the 50th and even just before that GH’s demise has stopped being talked about unless your the typical gloom and doom people who only complain about the show.

Congratulations for making my point for me. There is a certain segment of the GH fanbase that secretly wish for the show’s cancellation so they can be proven right. It does my heart good every time to prove them wrong

now ABC needs to bring AMC/OLTL back! even 1/2 each would be good. still 2hour soap block!!

They deserve these numbers. Ever since the new regime took over it has been must-watch. Why? Because the stories are fast-paced and something big happens almost every day. They don’t keep you waiting weeks or months for the payoff most of the time. They also have many, many stories going on so you don’t get bored of seeing the same 10 characters every day for months on end. Also, the cast is fantastic.

They don’t keep you waiting? Are you kidding, Nick D? They not only keep you waiting, the stories sometimes are left on the cliff to hang for weeks on end.
Yes, the show is fast paced, but it is also disjointed and badly paced.
I am convinced that the only people watching have short attention spans.
I get bored because the basic storyboard of good storytelling is not utilized–there is no introduction, rising action, climax and resolution. I think those who watch GH on a regular basis are easily pleased and most likely do not plumb the great books because they lack the patience for it. I watch maybe every two weeks and never a whole show. What was must see TV for the last thirty years has become a burden. I check in once in awhile to check its pulse, and that is it. Most of what I know about GH comes from Twitter feeds and other online soap sites.

finally looks like things are paying off, hopefully the show will stay on track. I’m enjoying all the current storylines, loving the new addition Michele stafford , she’s doing a great job,i’m also loving Jordan, and Anna, talk about girl power, Patrick and Sabrina are breaking my heart. Ava, gurl, you in trouble!, lol, Maura West is badass, the only one i’m not rooting for at al is Julian, he’s proven to be a disappointment, i just don’t see him as Alexis great love, so far he’s coming across like a weasel. I don’t see him as either a villain or anti hero, he’s got some work to do to prove himself, and one more shout out to girl power, Go Molly Go, i hope she takes Julian down.

Congrats! GH is great!

It was Sam Silas and Michelle that’s all…It was a good week…

That is because they have a great cast. But I think the heart felt performance from Teresa/ Sabrina and Patrick Jason Thompson was simply amazing

Congratulations GH.

How about the rest of us who are over 49?? We are the boomers and we have been watching GH since high school! . Why do the ratings people only worry about the younger people watching TV. We are the ones who have the time to watch the soaps. Keep up the good work! I was sad to lose All my Children and OLTL, and I’m glad that some characters from OLTL are now on GH acting as other characters.

Ratings are reported that way because that’s what ad agencies & marketing people need to target their ads. It’s been proven time & again that older people are not as susceptible to advertising as younger people. Ad agencies & marketing companies don’t care about 49+ because in their opinion, they are not seeing substantial returns on their investment when buying ad space for tv commercials. They are the ones who want to know what the age breakdown is of a tv show’s audience, and whether it’s on the increase or decline because they target a specific age group for their ads. Why are ads important to a tv show? That’s where networks make their money! Broadcasting a soap doesn’t bring anything to a network. In fact, it a huge expense. The revenue comes from commercials.

Regardless what some thing his show has made a big turn around and really good to me. Just think this is Nielsen Box holders. Wonder what the real total viewers are.

GH has benefited from soap fans who have lost their shows and, loyal folks that we/they are, they’re watching a subpar production, which is better than none.
I think it’s a toss up as to which show is worse, Y&R or GH – and it’s a shame.

Billy Miller will be a reason to watch, at least until he isn’t. That happens with so much of GH under these two. There can be good parts, good episodes, but the overall show is just a tired cartoon on an endless loop.

The B.S. about these “numbers” is so artificial, such a crock. Look at the numbers OLTL had – as good and sometimes MUCH better. Do you see that show still around??

I’ve been watching soaps for over 35 years, on and off, but started with GH as a teenager during the Luke and Laura years. I have to say, that despite the weak story lines and lack of any real character development on GH, I really love this soap, for it ‘s pure entertainment value. I try to turn off my brain and just enjoy the fun and great performances. Maura West was so boring as Diane on Y&R, yet wonderful on GH. I love the way she devours every scene she is in. Excited that Michelle Stafford has joined the show, and now the rumored Billy Miller may too:-))). On the downside, I do find they have too many characters now, bouncing around and not seeing our favs for a week at a time. Roger Howarth is sadly underused and I miss Todd every time I see him. I wish the writers would be more realistic…too many things that make you go hmmm. A little more attention to the details and more character development, with this cast and it could be the best soap ever.

Happy for GH. I am grateful for an hour of entertainment that I can rely on day after day, week in and week out. Im enjoying most everything on the show and most every character. I don’t think that there are any characters that I hate (I even like Sonny now that they’ve made him less a hero and more the villain he’s always been). Would like a little more fun on the show and would like to see some of the dropped stories picked up (Milo running Lucy’s healthclub and just who was the mysterious patient that Kevin kept treating for so long?). Happy about the vets getting story even if they aren’t center stage all the time. Best part of the show is Anna. Making her commissioner was the best thing this team has done.

What is this Bull ____________ about the Daytime Emmy Awards not being on TV . . . . Daytime is TV. What about the regular Emmy Awards where are we going to see them? This is an outrage. I can understand not running them at night. Didn’t daytime awards use to be during the day. In any case they could be taped and shown at a different time. I am like speechless. Is there anyone else out there that thinks something is wrong with this? HELLO. TV awards not being shown on TV. What’s up with that?

Nina is going to sneak into Sonnys house and mistakenly stab Carly thinking she was Ava…Ava finds a wounded Carly and picks up the knife just as Sonny walks in…Ava will be arrested for attempted murder…Nina will try to harm Kiki and this is when she’ll learn Kiki is her daughter!

GREAT!!!!! Love it. – You should apply for a writer’s job only go to B&B because they really need you I am so over all this Wyatt and Hope and Liam crap. They are stuck in a rut over there. BUT I really love what you are coming up with for GH. Put it in a book form and I’ll be the first one in line waving my charge card.

I’m always happy for GH’s success ….. however, I will still stand by the fact that we have too many cast members and too many stories just drop off or get picked up weeks later which kind of makes a person lose interest.

General Hospital

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

Photo: ABC

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.

Courtesy/ABC

Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?

Courtesy/ABC

Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Asher Antonyzyn Shares, “I Think That If Jason Doesn’t Get Sent Away Again, He and Danny Will Have a Really Great Connection”

It is clear that Danny Morgan (Asher Antonyzyn), as of right now, has the most character traits of his father, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). When Jason returned to Port Charles and was hiding out at the Quartermaine boat house, viewers saw that Danny wanted to help out his dad as much as he could.

When the two shared a heart-to-heart about Danny’s passions and Jason learned he is turning out to be a sort of adrenaline junkie like himself, the father and son shared a bonding moment.

‘Asher Antonyzyn spoke to Soap Opera Digest about Danny having a lot more to do in story now that Jason is back, and how it has been working with Steve Burton and where he thinks the on-screen relationship can go.

Photo: JPI

When speaking of how Danny is drawn to adrenaline and danger like his father, Asher expressed: “I can’t keep count of all the times that people say, ‘Danny, he’s just like his dad!’ I think that if Jason doesn’t get sent away again, he and Danny will have a really great connection.”

On his screen-time with Steve Burton, Antonyzyn added,  “When Steve Burton was coming back as Jason, I was like, ‘Since Danny never really had storyline with him, maybe I’ll come back out here a lot more and be able to do that with him.’ And then it happened! So that was pretty cool.”

So, do you hope that Danny and Jason’s connection is explored further? Do you think we will watch Asher grow up and become Jason Morgan 2.0? Comment below.
