Last week was a great week for General Hospital, and so too were the stories and episodes!  Two of which we had reported on in our Soap Buzz and just as much as we loved them, so did the audience!

According to ABC, for the ratings week of September 9-13th, the Tuesday September 10th telecast of GH featuring complications with Britt’s  (Kelly Thiebaud) baby and a newly-freed Franco (Roger Howarth) proclaiming his feelings for Carly (Laura Wright), ranked as the series’ most-watched telecast in nearly 5 months in Total Viewers (3.00 million), while Wednesday’s episode Sept 11th), revealing Baby Connie as the name that Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (Emme Rylan) chose for their new little bundle of joy, was GHs  =2nd-most-watched telecast in over 2 years in Women 25-54 (1.03 million) – since 4/10/13 and 8/15/11, respectively.

Both these episodes illustrated that good umbrella story and pushing the story forward brings in the viewers, plus seeing characters the audience wants to see front and center also helps along with stellar performances

So what do you think of GH strong showing and numbers? Were you watching last week all the baby drama for Britt, Dante and Lulu, Spinelli and Maxie? And Franco professing his feelings to Carly?  Let us know!

I was watching both days to see @MauriceBenardMB & Sonny’s breakdown story. That’s the problem with naming certain things and leaving out other.

Shay

Well then you had a treat today….Sonny doing the manic was just about the most entertaining I have ever seen him….not generally a fan of MB’s acting style, but he was laugh out loud funny at that party. They should give him more scenes of such levity….it definitely broke that decades old mold that he’s been trapped in..and it was a wonderful and welcome change of pace!!!!! (I especially enjoyed Carly and the “Bensonhurst Babe’s” reaction to his mirth and merriment!!!!)

While I am enjoying the story of Brit’s baby very much and was interested in the name of Lante’s baby, I remain repulsed by the Franco story and especially with the farce of the infatuation between him and Carly. Clearly the story is hated by many fans, even though many apparently are fine with it. I would be surprised if it is bringing new viewers to GH but I’m sure RC/FV will try to spin it that way. For me I can’t watch RH’s scenes as Franco, even though I respected and liked him as Todd.

At this point I am hanging on by a thread to see how the Luke story is resolved in November. Then I think, after thirty years, I’m done. RC’s writing style just isn’t for me. Never watched OLTL and never heard anything about it that made me want to.

Robins return, and the reveal of baby Bens true parentage will cause ratings to go even higher…wait and see…i bet if ratings were calculated by all age groups and both sexes the ratings would be even higher. Meanwhile im still hoping Robin will be an imposter who takes baby Ben and disappears with him after its revealed Ben is Patricks and Robins child(or is he) I still believe my favorite Dr.O has plans for the child and is the person who sent a fake Robin to PC to get her hands on the baby…it probably wont happend but i think this would make a thrilling storyline as Patrick and Britt unite to find the missing child…

Shay

You may not be tooooo far off the mark, jimh….at least in reference to our adored “Dr. O.!!!!” Enough said….

The toddler playing the baby is Asian which makes sense since Brad — Asian — is the father. Doubt Patrick has any Asian in his lineage.

Shay

I didn’t notice any Asian features during “Baby Ben’s” closeup…and he obviously doesn’t have a dark, funky hairdo, either!!!! Definitely not like Brad…..

You are giving tiic of this show right now TOO TOO TOO much credit. They will never think of anything so devious and actually intriguing ,unless they copy it from you.
I have shut the Sonny’s off his meds show, and watched the Britt part on here. It was good. Sorry when Sonny eats the show as he is prone to do, I just don’t’ bother to watch. I still think the baby is Patrick’s or he would have insisted on a dna test.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wish they would use some fans story ideas…not just mine but others ive read that sound even better…Sonny can be a bit too much at times(however i wish certain members of my own family would act more like him when they are off or even when they are on their meds, and unfortunately unlike the tv show i cant shut them out…lol) Also, i feel there is more twists to come in Britts baby storyline. Thanks 4 the reply Janet!!!

Let’s not forget the announcement of Robin returning brought back viewers also. Since many are trying to catch up on GH for Robin’s return.

The storylines are silly, and clearly the writers don’t know what to do with the major characters.Initially I disliked, Sony, but even mobsters deserve some normalized family life.Bringing back Michaels birth dad, was done to prop up the Quartermaine family tree and give them and the show a sense of history,but E.J.Monica’s son or the character ‘s acting is flat, and boring at best.Ava, and Franco, I still call him Todd Manning, is the most ludicrous stretch of anyone’s imagination?This is the worst travesty of the entire show.James Franco was the only Franco!!!!!Quit this nonsense of a story, and Laura Wrights talents are wasted on this mess of story.

I have been intrigued with new Franco..
RH is owning his character of Franco and I am waiting for RH to really show off his Franco in a story involving him!! awesome!!

GH has been outstanding in many ways!!!

GH has risen from the ashes!!!! It is reborn and rockin !!

I love RH, he’s hilarious, really don’t care if he is Todd, Franco…don’t care, love him.

Patrick

any hot-blooded person(s)… be it man or woman… in his presence… tantalize…

the prospects are there…

he quips
he reals
he “owns”

Yikes!

anyway… on to Carly…

“?” big question
“!” big WTH… heck is going on?

her character… is being so…. how shall we say this…. written poorly….

she’s “fighting” with Felix – he’s her boyfriend.
she’s acting childish with Ava… over the big party for Kiki/Morgan.
she storms off… AGAIN from Franco’s room… that she’s done w/him

I mean… mother of the year… will stand and fight for…

it’s been months… and she’s still doing the same…. things…

OK… it’s the writing…

but.. it’s like long winded… machinations still the same… OK Carly…

hop in to bed…

that should buy you some time

I’m watching for Spixie. I honestly believe Britt is being over hyped and given to much credit by the soaps media and ABC. I honestly believe most fans don’t give a damn about Britt and wants the truth to come out that its not her baby and then she can leave GH for good. I can’t wait for baby Georgie to be claimed by her real parents Maxie and Spinelli, and she can get away from those imposters!

Patrick
Patrick

yesterdays’ epi… when Britt, Nicholas, and Benjamin left the hospital…

I’ve never seen Britt look more radiant…

ratings be damned.. who are the Nielsons! ? this is one time I’m with them…

hooray for Britt and Maxie…. IMO – DAYS should be #2…. GH #1.
CBS, sad to report… is doldrums… a shell of itself. I must add… Michael Muhney, Adam… is saving Y&R… sadly.. waiting for Sharon to be righted.. ala writing.. seems too far away…

dag! did you see Maxie yesterday… in that black dress… looking so HOT! this girl… has elevated herself.. to woman. and it shows… perhaps… IF I was married to Brandon Barash… i’d be ALL that

man… i was looking at Kelly Sullivan in that funeral print… and SHE”s STUNNING!
Dag! what a loss

I just have to say… if it seems I’m on a ???? !!!! Carly and Sonny spiral… it’s the company they keep…. it’s time for GH to cut their losses…. Michael, Morgan, and Kiki… are achingly unwatchable.

why is it that Felix is THE busybody? Dang! I’d much rather have Brad in the scenery.

I can’t even go their… ie: Sabrina, Patrick, and Emma…. it’s hurry up and wait… for THE return…. Robin McCullough

To each his own. I haven’t watched in weeks.

For me the show is unwatchable. The Franco mess is awful, and although I love Roger Howarth on OLTL I hate him on GH.
I’ll tune in when Robin returns for those scenes only and then back out again.

I’m really enjoying almost every aspect of GH right now! Sad to lose Kelly Sullivan, but impressed how her murder has impacted so many different story lines! Anxious to find out the true parentage of both babies! And if you think you already know…I promise they are wayyy ahead of us! It will be something we didn’t see coming!! Look forward to more Dante & family scenes soon!!

Bradford Anderson and Kirsten Storms have been killing it with their amazing acting during this Spixie baby story. I’m watching for Maxie, Spinellli, and baby Georgie! Britt, Dante, and Lulu do nothing for me and been blah during the last couple of months. I’m also enjoying Emma, Patrick, Anna, Felicia, and Mac.

With the exception of the gays and yet anoher DiMera victory (seriously Stefano…retire) I am loving Days too. Kristen, Marlena, and Nicole could have a spinoff! Their bitchy battles are must see. I also want another drug laced, looped out book club gathering. That was choice!

Tabitha Rollins

Wow talk about Spixie being ignored in this article until the last sentence! I was not watching GH to see Lante give Spixie’s baby a fake name! I was watching in hoping that both Maxie and Spinelli smarten up and get “THEIR BABY” away from Dante and Lulu, and raise their baby together as a family!

heidi

Agree!!!

i love GH , its rocking and so is everyone, i’ love the 3 ex oltl in their new roles and can’t wait for Robin to come home and for Anna to become more front and center, the only thing GH is failing missererably at is how they are treating Genie Francis. its sad that Y&R she devil boss fired her, but then for GH to hire her and treat her like an extra is even worse, shame on you FV and RC, this is really insulting.

t I have alternately praised and been confounded by RC’s writing, but this fall he is not even trying. He just dusted off last year’s scripts and changed names to protect the guilty. Where do I begin. Okay…former villain comes to town with a different face to claim mob territory and torment Duke and Anna (2012 Faison, 2013 Julian). Part of the plot involves marrying mob child to one of Sonny’s offspring (2012 Trey/Kristina, 2013 Kiki/Morgan). There is a shooting death of someone Sonny loves (2012 Jason, 2013 Connie). A mob thug gets shot and kicked off the pier (2012 Jason, 2013 whatever the thug’s name was). There is the long ago teenage pregnancy where a mobster was the father (2012 Connie Joe Trey, 2013 Alexis Julian Sam). There are more similarities but I think I have made my point . Besides that, WHY do Ava and Julian keep having conversations in public places saying things like “We can’t let our enemy Sonny Corinthos or anyone else in this town find out that you are the presumed dead mob kingpin Julian Jerome and I am your previously unknown sister Ava Jerome!”. It is beyond ridiculous the way these people talk to each other. And what was with Alexis pouring her heart out to Derek, a complete stranger????? This is a woman who did not talk about her baby daddy for 40 years, then in 2 minutes she basically told Derek “I’m a slut. I have three daughters by three different fathers. One is a mobster, one is his brother, and he other I was a drunk tteenager in he back of a car. Oh and did I mention I’m also a high paid mob lawyer? How about you?”. Alexis would NEVER divulge all of that to a stranger!

So glad you enjoyed it, Patrick, but I cannot take credit for what is not mine….you must thank “Cressida Bonas,” Prince Harry’s latest squeeze….apparently she coined the phrase to describe the greatest height of embarrassment and humiliation, and I loved it so much when I read it that I made a point to save it for those especially applicable occasions….I thought the one with Alexis was befitting of the term!!! (Love it, use it, never lose it…..LOL!)

Elizabeth

Yup. In a nutshell, how many ways can we say LAZY WRITING….

Johnny

YUP. People bashed Guza and Phelps for these types of violent, misogynistic, mob related stories for a decade. And Cartini is doing NOTHING differently. They are even retelling their own recent stories. If anything they are worse because the old regime made no pretense about having or wanting the veterans around. The show HAS many vets hat we rarely see but are clamoring for. Everyone on the canvas is now just an extension of the mob. Why did ABC even fire Phelps and Cuss only to hire another duo who plans to take the show in the exact same direction?

Robbyrob
Robbyrob

This is in reply to Johnny… In my humble opinion, a big NOPE! Big difference here. Phelps/Guza used their mob to only play 3 characters, Jason/Carly/Sonny. No one else existed…oh that’s right, they existed long enough to get killed off (Alan, Zander, Tony, Justus, Emily, Georgie, Rick, Logan (Scotty’s son no less!) and did I mention Jake? I pretty much gave up on GH that whole decade Phelps was in charge. Her only saving grace was the wonderful love story of Robin and Patrick. Frank and Ron have done wonderful things for GH. Sure, growing pains abound and not everything is perfect…but the show is STILL on the air and ratings are climbing! The cast is energized, the production team goes out of its way to surprise the audience (how rare in todays twitter/spoiler crazy world), and the audience is responding for the most part. I haven’t been this excited for GH in quite some time. Give credit to Frank and Ron for even being on Twitter. Can you name any other soap EP/Head Writer that do this? Ron even responds to some very nasty tweets. I love the Jeromes. This story is firmly rooted in GH history. Involves Anna/Duke/Lucy and now brings in Alexis/Sam with Derek and anyone is Ava’s orbit. Also, Julian is the real father to Lucas Jones…who’s gay. Bobbie is his adoptive mother. Would love for him to come back to romance Felix and maybe have mob ambitions (or not) but would love to see how Julian responds to his son. History and character right there! William De Vry and Maura West are very inspired casting moves. What I remember from Guza’s version of the Soapranos was basically each year another mobster would show up to threaten Sonny. Remember Faith? What a joke she was! Bland and with NO history to the show and basically took over. It today’s day and age of mega cost cutting for Ron and Frank to have such a great cast filled with both vets and newcomers is awesome. I’m sure ABC trims that budget pretty good too. Each and every episode is quality and must-see TV. Heck, I want to see more vets too but its a show filled with riches. These characters and actors are out there and NOT being killed off. If your horrified by how AJ is acting, he was first written to shoot Alan in the back by Guza! At least if any violence happens, it is character driven and you honestly see the characters emotions. By all means, you are entitled to your opinion and I fully respect it. I just think Frank and Ron are unfairly demonized for attempting to right a formerly sinking ship (GH) with such few monetary resources that are available in the TV world of 2013. Heck, the internet can’t even sustain the new OLTL. My biggest compliment about GH is that if I can come back and love the show after Phelps/Guza graphically killed off the characters I mentioned… Read more »

Alexis.

high strung.
high spirited.

she’s the personification of frigid angst.

she couldn’t keep a man to save her life…. so she boldly quotes high virtue and moral.

her legalese keeps her busy to ignore “her”

LOL.

don’t get me wrong… I love her daughters.

it’s just that.. I laughed when… Derik was talking with Anna/Duke… and there was saint supreme justice Alexis looking down from the 2nd floor at the hospital…

ie: just like she ranted and raved to Shawn about his misdeeds… left him flatulence

lol… for all it’s worth… Alexis

I want maxie and spinelli to claim that baby of theirs!

Caitie

I’m pleased that GH is experiencing a solid uptick in the ratings and I will agree that the combined baby stories have created some good interest – although I very much question that the naming of baby Connie was as much of a key part of this interest as the press comments would indicate. Yes, on the Sept 11 episode, the reveal of her name gave us a heart-warming and heart-breaking scene with MB and the baby at the very end. But that was the very end of the episode, and it was all that came before which created and sustained interest (and ratings) in this episode.

For many, the highlight of this episode was the beautifully written and acted exchange between Maxie and Anna (another example of how the Maxie/Spinelli aspect has been THE key to the success of this particular baby story so far). We also saw strong, character-driven, plot-promoting scenes between Monica and AJ, AJ and Michael, Nikolas and Britt and Maxie and Britt. We saw cute baby scenes with the Falconeris where we were won over while watching a handsome man (Dom/Dante) enamored with his new tiny leading lady bundled in pink. We enjoyed another good moment between Dante and Anna, one where plot was developed without sacrificing the characters or the moment. And we saw the drama of Sonny’s confrontation, a confrontation which made the closing vision of Sonny and baby Connie even more poignant.

I know PR has to focus on one point, but, IMO, there was so much more to choose in this episode, one which I enjoyed more for characterization and for meaningful conversations than for one specific plot point.

I completely agree. This is off topic but would add that for me, as a long term viewer, I turned off most of GH this past Summer. I couldn’t stomach the constant propping of the Franco and Kiki characters. I have come back to viewing recently and have been impressed with a lot of actors, especially KS and BA as Maxie and Spin.

I’m enjoying Maxie and Spinelli. I love that Spixie is getting more airtime as of late, and I hope it continues. I can’t wait for Maxie and Spinelli to drop the bomb on Dante and Lulu that the baby is theirs and they want their baby. I’m also enjoying Sonny and his meltdown.

janet

I like Maxie but she needs to take her daughter because the kid should not be related to the drunk driver who killed his grandson, and didn’t care, AND the mobster who kills everyone ,and causes his kids untold pain and horror. This baby should not have that horror of a name and Dante the dirty cop for a father. Maxie needs to step up and realize this. Britt also gave her kid the grandmother from hell. Dr.O. These babies will grow up with the same things against it. I don’t care what the ratings say. this show is going to hell in a handbasket. All the characters who were brought back for the NB are gone or appear once a month. Sonny made me turn the show off for years and here he is eating the show again. Bye Bye.

I am LOVING everything about “GH” right now, from Sonny’s bipolar storyline, to the Michael/Morgan/Kiki trio, Franco and Carly, Dante/Lulu-Maxie/Spinelli-Britt/Brad/Patrick-etc. Baby drama, Silas and Sam, Alexis and Julian Jerome storylines, and just anxious for Luke, Laura, and Robin to all return and all that entails!!! “GH” is great and that is the reason for the ratings!!!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Courtesy/ABC

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?
