General Hospital Surges to 2.8 Million Viewers For Five Month High in Total Viewers! #1 Women 18-34 Six Straight Weeks!

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital is on FIYAH!  According to ABC, the week of  September 23 – 27 showed more gains in total viewers for the lone ABC soap opera and highest to date in five months!  Plus, the series remained for the sixth consecutive week the number #1  daytime show for women in the key 18-34 demo.

As fans know,  during that ratings period GH got everything in place for the explosive storylines to bust wide open this week!  Of course, we are talking about the reveal of Maxie and Spinelli being the bio-parents of baby Connie, and the whereabouts of Robin! We expect next week’s ratings to spike this even higher for GH, since the week of Sept 30 is when viewers got some of the reveals they have been waiting for.

According to the ABC press release for week of September 23-27, “GH surged to a 5-month high in Total Viewers (2.80 million) – since week of 4/8/13 – posting double digit increases over the year ago week across all core categories.   Notably, GH  ranked as the #1 program in daytime for the 6th consecutive week in Women 18-34 (262,000/0.8 rating), and placed a solid #2 in Women 18-49 (730,000/1.1 rating) and Women 25-54 (954,000/1.6 rating).”

General Hospital grew by robust double digit margins year to year in Total Viewers (+11% – 2.80 million vs. 2.52 million), Women 18-34 (+44% – 262,000 vs. 182,000), Women 18-49 (+44% – 730,000 vs. 554,000) and Women 25-54 (+31% – 954,000 vs. 726,000).

And it deserves it…i can never wait for the next episode…proof there is an audience for a daytime soap…hope Robin gets attatched to the baby…then when Dr.O get caught she reveals to Robin that the baby(now hidden away) is really Robins(and Patrick) as a bargaining tool to get Anna to release her and drop all charges so we can keep Britts mutter for many years to come!!!

Hey, WHATEVER it takes to keep the magnificently malevolent “mutter from h#!!” on GH’s map!!!…Today’s show was heaping with heavenly hilarity thanks to Dr. O’s extensive, ecstatic, eloquent elocutions!!!! No matter how much screentime the gleefully ghoulish Germanic glam-ma is granted, it is never enough!!! Just witnessing her cool, cunning and calculating character cradling her “creation” (aka, “Cesar Jr.”….) with such creepy caressing was a sheer splendor, not to mention admiring her absolutely apt and astute assessment of “Sapbrina”! About the only false note was Robin’s intrepid take down of the “Teutonic Terror” with her transparent tactic, although it should undoubtedly be a most temporary triumph….obviously it’s not okay to obstruct the outrageously outre’ Obrecht!!! Retribution will be rapid on Robin’s reprieve since “Liesl and Jerry” require her research to remain relevant.

Congradulations General Hospital.
Cartini both are equally amazing they came to us when things
were bleak and we had no hope.
They gave fans the things they have been begging for and wanted for years.

We have Duke back from the dead we have Anna we have Robert we
Have Stories that captivate our hearts and takes our minds to a whole new level,

I’m loving Carly and Franco together their chemistry sets my screen ablaze
I know Carly had amazing ships with Jax and Sonny but her relationship with Franco surprises her it’s very different unique and I just can’t get enough.

Harry

I think that the only reason ratings are up is due to the prospect of seeing Robert and Robin back. I hope Ron doesn’t do what he did last time and just abandon the vets again. GH is improving and is at its best when we aren’t forced to watch the mess that that is Franko, Carly, Sabrina, Morgan, Olivia and Ava (Lips La Rue). I would not say the writing is a hit, rather, fans are anxious to see the their favorites back on the canvas again.

Harry these ratings reflect before Robin was even on screen. She wasn’t on screen until this past Monday, these ratings are for the week before.

The ratings for GH for the last five weeks have been doing great. The vets are on canvas but majority of story has been the Kiki/Michael/Morgan triangle, the stuff with Ava and Sonny, the Lulu/Dante/Maxie/Spinelli baby thing/ Britt’s baby story and Franco and Carly. So all the things you say arent working are the things that have had the ratings up for weeks now.

Martha

David!!
Kisses Love you correcting these people
Yes 5months people not one week 5months Robin hasn’t even been on one month so yea
Obviously Roger Howarth Laura Wright has something to do with it
Also other people that some claim to hate.

Bravo General Hospital!
I was a GH fan since Ricky Martin showed up in town
I loved Sonny and Brenda, Karen and Jagger these pairings and more
Loved Liz’s rape storyline Carly being held by Rick and telling Bobbie she was her daughter.
For a while GH went down hill killing of legendary characters the treatment of stars
I’m glad Frank is in charge and Ron is by his side bringing back our characters
And taking our characters to a whole new playing field…
Something I have to admit to is I had this hatred for
Ron and Frank but they made me eat all those nasty words that I was spewing at them.

They made me actually enjoy Carly with her Franco story
I didn’t know Rodger I thought he was a lackey dull unable to act but when Rodger broke down in Carlys arms at that moment I have become a fan of his and Franco & Carly.

Thank You
Bravo General Hospital

Yes… and YES!!! GH… for me is #1 in every category!!! Would love to see it gain the honor of #1 officially!!!

GH is on fire and it is so great… thanks to the best cast, crew and writers!!! Thanks to RV and FV for stepping in and getting this show to where it should be!!! Congratulations to everyone at GH!!!

I knew Ron and Frank would pull together a show of Gold,
I find myself complaining a lot less then I was when Guza was in charge,
Enjoying more then one character and one storyline there are actually hotter men getting more screen time then Sonny that’s a major plus for me.

I hope Pattrick finds Robin, Silas and Sam get together and
Most of all Franco and Carly get together their chemistry and tortured love story is way to intense and powerful not to go there.

I love all of General Hospital

Alex

Well deserved. nothing can stop Frank & Ron.
I like all the story lines, specially the Robin return, Ava & Morgan ( I wonder where that goes to?) and the most exciting pairing of Carly and Franco. I love it all and I can´t get enough.
Congrats to Ron and Frank for turning this show into MUST watch !!!

Harry
Harry

I just don’t know how they are going to make fans accept that Carly is hot for her the man who orchestrated her son’s rape. I am sorry, but a neat little tumor does not tie things up. Why could they have not written a decent character worthy of Roger’s talent? it’s clear he hates this part as he is pulling in a terrible performance on purpose. Yes, ratings are up due to Robert and Robin’s return, but what happens next? Can Ron sustain those ratings? I am dubious.

Sugarmama

If Jax hired a man to protect Josslyn and she gets raped is it his fault?

Alex

It´s a SOAP. Anything is possible in fiction. That is what makes GH so successful.

Talking about prison rape…. Being in prison is no walk in the park, specially for young men being there for the first time. The chances of getting raped in prison are close to 100% unless you´ve got someone protecting you. (there are tons of movies focussing on violence in prison).
In other words, just being there makes Michael already a victim. Now you can list all the characters who played a part in Michael´s tragedy.
I certainly did not enjoy the hospital rape SL, but it showed the audience how cruel life in prison is.

I´m enjoying the here and now and all the different stories to be told. And I do enjoy RH and LW, the actors entertain me more than any other pairing on the show. If I couldn´t overlook the fact that the SOAP genre is far away from reality, I wouldn´t watch.

Apparently millions of people are enjoying GH as it is RIGHT NOW.

Hope
Hope

Agreed Alex this is a soap not reality and most people are willing to over look this because they know Soaps and Reality is so far apart.
I’m enjoying the Carly and Franco storyline because it’s different and new unexpected
I really love the dynamics between them,
People want new things not the same old stuff it gets boring and predictable after a while.

Brenda
Brenda

I’m sad and upset not all my General Hospital favorites are not on
Brenda Jagger Emily Alan Justice Jason Zander Gia Georgie Lucky,
But I’m grateful to still have Carly Sonny Monica Tracy Anna Duke Luke Laura,
I believe Frank and Ron even if they get a lot of greif and upset fans hollering at them they are ultimately responsible for the survival of General Hospital,
I appreciate them for their hard work and their dedication to this shows history and characters.
I’m loving Roger Howarth the most I love the chemistry between Roger and Laura
Carly and Franco as a possible duo excites me I love the history the hardship and the forbidden love POV I have always been a sucker for Carly and her vulnerable side and she’s showing it only for Franco I love that.

We love this show me my 18yr old 16yr old 10yr old and 7yr old daughters my mother that turned
60 on GH50 anniversary watch this everyday something that brings my girls my mom my husband
Closer, we can never get enough of General Hospital.
I’m loving DnA Spixie Lante Siam all couples and characters these stories are well written and the actors are beyond talented, Something everyone agrees on is the Chemistry between Roger Howarth and Laura Wright that Chem is strong makes it difficult to hate them or not want them together it’s pure passion when they look at each other.
Keep these coming Ron and Frank you both are gifts that we cherish very much.

Mary

I’m enjoying Franco/Carly but hope he gets to work with other women and they should bring on his real mother.

Okay I admit it I was skeptical when Ron and Frank took over I thought they were going to bring everyone that was on One Life To Live to General Hospital but they didn’t and I appreciate that,
They brought home Duke Anna Robert Holly Laura Scott Lucy Doc and brought actors from almost every daytime show General Hospital is now a Mega Soap fun entertaining very intense and sure to shake up our afternoons .
I am loving Robin’s story Sonny, Lante/Spixie, The Quartermaines, Morgan and Ava, Silas and Sam
Most of all Carly and Franco he’s new and different for her and I really enjoy the chemistry and dynamics between Laura and Roger.

I agree. OLTL will always be my favorite soap of all time. I thank Frank and Ron for bringing and keeping some of Llanview alive while PP figured out what they were doing.

GH is on fire. Frank and Ron are the best daytime duo soaps have seen in a long time. I know not everything they have done has turned to gold, but compared to other executive producers and head writers out there, they are hundred times better.

Congrats GH. Keep up the great work.

And PP, you better be resolve this issue with ABC and bring back my OLTL soon.

I absolutely think GH can become # 1 in the 18 – 49 bracket, as well as hit the 3.0 million viewer mark, it is incredibly riveting. Kudos to Frank, Ron and their entire team, as well as to all of the loyal fans, who never gave up hope, and continued to watch, and welcome to all the new viewers. I am a fan for over 40 years (been watching since my early teens) and I enjoy revisiting the old characters being brought back, as well as the new character storylines. Way to go GH !!!!

YUP! I’m watching GH 100% for Spixie, The Drake family, Mac, Felicia, Duke and Anna! I can’t wait for Spixie to get their baby Georgie Far away from Lante! Maxie and Spinelli are baby Georgie’s parents and need to raise her. I also cannot wait to see Anna, Duke, Emma, Maxie, Mac, and Patrick to lay their eyes on Robin again!

Yes I think GH can take the #1 spot in woman 18-49! I also think GH can get 3 million viewers. I loved that we saw Robert it was such of a surprise to see him! I’m also loving all things Maxie and Spinelli. I’m glad the truth is out and now Spixie and claim their baby. GH is getting off to a strong start for the new TV season! I hope GH can also average at least a 2.4 in HH, and also be #1 in women 18-49, and women 18-34 for the 2013-2014 TV season.

Wow incredible!
I saw Carly and Franco were on the episode that had 3.million viewers

Roger Howarth and Laura Wright has this amazing pull to each other I just can’t get enough!

I don’t like most of the stories and its obvious a favorite vet of mine currently has no story other than propping newbies and characters this regime will write for not getting a storyline

too many triangles ,long gaps with the bloated cast…..I’m only back for Robin’s return umbrella story but I’m no hater and glad that GH is doing well…and other peeps are enjoying it but I have a lot of problems with the show and ratings./ #s are of no consequence to me.

I am loving everything about GH I love that Frank and Ron know what we want even before we ask for it
The Dante/Lulu/Maxie/Spin story I find interesting I love Maxie she’s trying to do the right thing but I don’t think Lulu deserves it at all she was the one that ruined Maxie’s sisters marriage,
Although I don’t think Sonny deserves sympathy I am glad Carly was able to make him take his medication even tho only a few months ago he threatened to kill her and she had to beg him to forgive her, IMHO Sonny is the most abusive man on canvas that are made likeable by his women Carly being one of them.
I love The return of the vets returning Robert Duke Anna Faison Lucy Laura Scott Stefan Nicholas
Scotty Bobbie Noah it’s nice to see the originals the people that made this show golden,
I’m loving Roger Howarth and Laura Wright they have beautiful chemistry and their story just speaks to me I hope Franco is forgiven by Carly it seems like she has but still feels guilty for having feelings for him,
Well I can’t wait till Franco and Carly’s story progresses.
I am loving the overall casting and the writing.
Bravo And Thank you Frank and Ron

GH is my must-see show now with DAYS a close second. Both shows seem to understand that the daytime serial is on the verge of extinction; and to combat that, they have to produce quality products. Neither show is perfect by any measure, but they are far superior to the shows they were during most of the 00’s. Y&R has the numbers but needs creative help. I was once a stalwart fan; and if I bail out on something I was so loyal to, that begs the question: how many more like me are out there? The only reason I can figure why Y&R is still #1 is that CBS has an overall stronger lineup comparatively with better lead-ins. Also, my local NBC affiliate has dropped DAYS from its lineup. I don’t understand how they can call themselves an NBC affiliate but not show ALL of NBC’s shows. It doesn’t make sense to me, but I watch it on Soapnet when I can.

I am definitely skeptical of demo groups, whether they be based on age, background, orientation, etc. As an off-topic social note, it seems the media, the corporations and the government (I think they’re all one personally) look for ways to divide us rather than unify us. I guess it’s all about where the dollar is when all is said and done.

I’m a self admitted former hater of Ron and Frank I wrote them some nasty letters begging them to quit,
Who knew a year later I would be one of their biggest fans and supporter,
I’m loving the returns I’m loving the stories and the characters together and apart
Sometimes I even amaze myself on how much these stories has changed me I’m no longer bitter about
Jason and Sam ending and Carly and Johnny ending.
I’m enjoying more then one character more then one story something I thought was impossible.
Before I say thank you I have to apologize and hope I’m forgiven not just to Ron and Frank
But to Roger Howarth I thought this guy was a Ronald McDonald type of actor a talentless hack that couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag even if his life was on the line I thought he was a clown nothing real and true about his acting but my mind truly changed after that bridge episodes where he was facing off with himself that was the most intense I have ever seen Roger Howarth and at that moment he is indeed one of the best and I was embarrassed that I was such a doubter a a**hat if you will,
I enjoy the chemistry between Roger and Laura maybe even a bit more then Ingo and Laura.
Thank you Frank and Ron for these stories and making General Hospital worth watching
Thank you Roger for showing me what you have to offer and how I was so wrong about you.

This show is number one for me!

I hated Ron and Frank thought they were hacks with pets but they surely proved me wrong
I love what they did and continue to do with General Hospital,
Most of all I love Roger Howarth I hated him at first I didn’t want him anywhere near my Carly
I didn’t think his acting was up to par with General Hospital actors but I changed my mind after the Bridge episode Roger showed that he was more then just a Clown in a crowd full of Professionals but he can do powerful and depth very well,
I love the chemistry between Laura and Roger I believe they have a bit more then Ingo Radamacher and Laura Wright and that says a lot coming from a former Roger Howarth hater and a pro CarJax fan.
Good Job everyone!
Thank you cast crew writers producers

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.
