Courtesy/ABC

More great news for the soaps for the week of January 6th through January 10th!  This time it’s for General Hospital!  In the latest Nielsen ratings research and via an official press release from ABC,  the soap opera garnered its most watched telecast in over six years for last Tuesday’s January 7th episode!

The numbers for the audience that the episode brought in were 3.55 million and that is the highest single episode since November 12th, 2007 of the daytime drama series.

So what was going down on the most watched episode?  Sam (Kelly Monaco) was about to learn about Silas (Michael Easton) mysterious past from Detective Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) and then Silas himself, while Heather (Robin Mattson) was about to kidnap Carly (Laura Wright), while Morgan  (Bryan Craig) came to see Sonny (Maurice Benard) and more!

In addition for the ratings week,  With four week highs, GH ranked as the week’s #1 program in daytime among Women 18-34 (254,000/0.8 rating – tied on rating) and was the #2 program in Women 18-49 (776,000/1.2 rating) and Women 25-54 (1.05 million/1.7 rating).

What do you think about GH having its most watched telecast in over six years?

Love GH and Days…glad they are doing great…rumor is ABC wants OLTL and AMC back to create a two hour daytime mega soap…characters from those soaps would appear on daytimes first two hour mega soap the expanded General Hospital which would air from 2 to 4 five days a week! And if you believe that i have some swamp property down in Florida id like to sell you…lol

Genie left not because they ask her to but because of her mother being ill. I applaud Genie for putting family before GH. No one knows how her mother is doing so I am giving everyone the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Elizabeth
Guest

Um, that was one of about twelve rumors as to why Genie left the show. What made you believe that one in particular – it was no more proven than any of the other ones. Why would Genie have not said to her fans that she needed to leave for some personal business?

Genie is not there because Ron does not like writing for her. Period. Plain and simple. He has made that abundantly clear. He has trampled on the legacy of soaps’ original supercouple time and time again. He relegated Laura to a weak willed woman who felt her only option, other than Luke, was to waffle to her old boyfriend Scotty. Ron is not good at writing for straight up, good, heroic characters. He has a lot of tricks in his arsenal, but that is not one of them. They either come off as stupid, weak, overly noble, or victims. The… Read more »

SO agree with you about TG and Luke… I enjoyed Luke under Labine as well. And for TG to say how much he doesn’t want Luke to be domesticated, well, now he follows Tracy around the Quartermaine mansion like a dog. “Yes dear….” and is the live in vermin exterminator saying stupid things like “Come to papa….” Frankly it’s a downright pathetic ending to a legendary character. Couldn’t care less if Luke were found dead in his Quartermaine bed at this point. And Tracy’s repetitive shtick is just annoying at this point.

Best show in all of tv. I wish that ABC knew it. They never have anything to comment about how awesome GH is. I am a nobody and I can see the damage that they did with their moronish cancellations. Now most their shows last a few episodes. No wonder CBS claims the best in daytime lineup. Why can’t ABC at least try to achieve some kind of respected shows.

It is too weird that everyone numbers jumped that week– I don’t think it has to do with the soaps, but the weather. Wasn’t there a few storms that week? I bet a lot of folks normally at work were catching up their guilty pleasure– when they got a snow day. That would be my guess– because what was on screen on GH wasn’t nearly as good as some episodes in November, so that would make sense– lets see what next week is– when everyone is back to work.

Debbie

I agree with you Mary that the ratings for that day were probably due to people being at home because of the weather. I wasn’t impressed with the episode.

I enjoy all GH’s episodes..It keeps my interest every day. I have no complaints. The stories rock and the ratings prove it. And not because of bad weather everyone was watching that particular day..

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Why do people keep misunderstanding my point. I didn’t say they watched only because of the weather– Of course the weather wasn’t the only reason, but when I see a big spike after the holidays when soap ratings normally dip or stay normal I look for another factor to explain it. And the weather was bad that week which just meant GH fans normally at work or out were able to watch the show– that is a good thing, it means if those fans were not working they would be watching. It proves the genre isn’t dead just that a… Read more »

I find it interesting that they aren’t making public what the last half of the weeks viewing numbers were… i.e., when they switched to the Franco/Carly/Heather crap.

I watch the show because it is great right now and those episodes were some of the best. I don’t believe for one minute the weather had anything to do with it.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Well I just check the ratings for the following week after this one and all the numbers were down for all four soaps, and down in that important female 18-49 group. So if the stories were the reason for the spike, the numbers would have stayed the same, but as I predicted they all fell —so despite what you might like to believe, the weather did help to boast the ratings– more folks at home, equals more eyeballs.

Great news. hoping since the idiot at ABC cancelled soapnet the ratings will go even higher. We need that live ratings. Its the only thing that counts on ratings. I still will never get over any soap fan watching The Chew. After Clinton Kelly called soap fans on his facebook morons and turds and Mario skimmed millions off his staff I wouldn’t give those to guys the time of day.

The Chew’s ratings aren’t real. It piggybacks on GH by spilling over for a minute into GH’s timeslot. It’s a ratings racket for ABC to promote yet one more failing talkshow.
Clinton Kelly and the crew of rejects will be in the junkheap, gone and forgotten long before that happens to GH if there is ANY justice.
Not that we can count on ABC for any justice.

The ratings of The Chew are real. AMC’s last minute also overlapped on OLTL when both shows were on ABC. I know because I always got the ending of AMC when I tuned in at 2:00pm to watch OLTL when both shows were on ABC. Are you going to say that AMC’s ratings weren’t real and that they were robbing OLTL’s ratings. Good grief. Get over yourself boes. You don’t like The Chew and that’s fine.

I LOVE GH. I LOVE THE STORY LINES. I use to watch this show in the late 70’s and 80’s. I caught up with it again last year around march or april and hooked on it again. I wish they could bring Genie Francis back but with a better storyline. I know she wants a better role or a more exciting one. I love Luke… but want to see more of Robin and Patrick and want lucky to come back. I also want Elizabeth Rebecca to have a new storyline. I like her acting..

The Chew piggybacks on GH’s ratings. If you record you’ll notice that in many markets the last minute of the Chew records on the GH timeslot, hence their ratings.
GH is the winner, the Chew is the parasite.

Actualy you would be incorrect on that. The Chew on some days is doing higher numbers than GH. THe only good part for GH is they tend to perform a bit better and jsut a bit better in the younger demographic. People need to get over the hate of The Chew. The show has proven to be a success. Oh and get it through your head AMC and OLTL are not coming back to ABC. Be happy we still have GH.

For whatever the reasons are I am so happy about great ratings results because even though I am having a hard time with the GH writing again, I don’t want to see GH hit the dust.

Youre right Liz. And it is totally due to the writing. As I have stated in other posts Ron Carlivati does not know how to write for “good” characters. It is the way James Reilly used to write. Good characters have to be victims all the time. Thats how we as an audience are to know they are good. It is totally plot driven writing. Character traits are what should drive the story…characters should not be changed and pigeon holed to fit into whatever story the writers want to push. Robin was always headstrong and fought for what she wanted… Read more »

Franco (Roger Howarth) is building an intense character, non-other than RH could have played Franco..

Roger Howarth is a brilliant actor, not Todd Manning..

Heather is not a”cartoon” that is nonsense..

Heather has been lethal, gotta love it !!!

Sabrina has developed into a great character, she is among the high cast!!!
The Sabrina character is being played by a great actress and is Robins better 😉

I agree. In fact, it saddens me that the entire show has become cartoonish. There is very little, if any, reality to it. I’ve watched soaps, day and night time, most of my life and, while they may be a bit outlandish at times, nothing compares to the “high” camp of GH. Camp and comedy is fine, so long as its balanced with true realistic drama. I don’t want to quit my GH habit but I’m becoming less and less interested.

Johnny
Guest

Heather was once a viable character. Despite her crazy, it was balanced. She could have affairs and love interests. As written by Ron, she is a complete cartoonish whack job only there to manufacture suspense. By now, she has brandished her knife on most of the cast, and the Friday cliffhanger of Heather with a knife lost any oomph it ever had about 47 times ago. If Heather was more like Mattson was as Gina…she could be a sustainable character. A funny villainess who could do outrageous things, but was redeemable.

At least Sabrina wasn’t in this episode! She is becoming a real nuisance- just leave with The Frito Bandito and never come back! And why is Sonny once again being a stupid hypocrite, accusing BOTH A.J. and Franco of crimes they didn’t commit as he has gotten away with so damn much? For once I’d really love to see The Manic Mobster really sent up the river! And why hasn’t ANYONE ON THE SHOW realized that “A.J.” also stands for “Ava Jerome”? Come on now!

Historically…soap viewership has always increased in late December and early January. It is the holiday season…people are at home. Kids are out of school. Its cold outside…and people are inside watching tv. It is never a sustained or prolonged ratings spike and what is presented onscreen has little or nothing to do with why the ratings increased. The Nielsen ratings are bous anyway. A small random sampling of what a tv is tuned into in NO way reflects the enormity of what is being watched.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
