General Hospital Releases Its 56th Anniversary Episode Promo

Next week, General Hospital continues on as the longest-running daytime drama still on the air, when it turns 56.   To make the occasion, the soap opera will celebrate with a special episode to air on Tuesday April 2nd.  (As we know, GH premiered on April 1, 1963).

Now, ABC has served up a promo and reveals that in story: “The people of Port Charles come together and celebrate the life of Gail Baldwin (the late Susan Brown). It’s our 56th Anniversary, don’t miss out! #GH56”

In a post on social media, the series says to join them for a special episode that “celebrates the history and legacies of GH.”

From the looks of it, Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Monica (Leslie Charleson) are chatting about the anniversary of the hospital, and what a kick to see former on-screen nemesis, Dr, Lesley Webber (the returning Denise Alexander) and Dr. Monica Quartermaine walking the hallways of GH chatting about old-times. Later, Bobbie says to Scott (Kin Shriner), “Look at us.  We’re still here after all this time.”

Check out the teaser below.  Then let us know if you are happy to know that GH plans to turn 56 by putting the spotlight on some of the longtime and beloved characters via the comment section.

Well, the promo wasn’t too thrilling but I am always happy to see the vets played more. They anchor the show. It was by their work that the show was able to remain with us for 56 years. I am looking forward to seeing how this story involving Gail plays out. I hope it was longer effects than Helena’s Will did. That was dropped like a hot potato.

Soaps are families to viewers. So wonderful to see the upcoming episode will remember that. I watched religiously in the 1970s and 1980s and 1990s. I found the stories lacking some since admittedly. But to see the vets back reminds me of the families we find in our stories. And how those vets should and do remain vital.

I’m happy that there’s a GH to tune into everyday, and here’s to more decades of GH.

Today I feel compelled to give some kudos to GH for honoring its rich history in promotion of its 56th anniversary and using the passing of Gail Baldwin as the catalyst for the celebration. It’s refreshing to see Monica, Lesley, Bobbie, Laura, Scotty, and Felicia. Yet it’s nauseating to see the predictable ending of the commercial with the despicable and omnipresent Sonny, placing a taint on the festivities…

Still, I will tune into this particular episode on this one particular day, making a return of my own as a former decades-long viewer to this, my once-favorite show. After all, they’re throwing a bone to the long-time viewer, and usually such treats are slim pickings!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
