On Thursday, ABC’s General Hospital reached yet another milestone in its illustrious history. The daytime drama taped its 15,000 episode.

During the tape day, the cast, crew and creatives posed for a photo on set to mark the occasion with cake.

GH’s 15,000 episode will air next month on June 17th.

ABC 7’s entertainment guru, George Pennacchio was on set with a first-hand report, interviewing the likes of Genie Francis (Laura), Maurice Benard (Sonny) and the show’s executive producer, Frank Valentini.

From the sounds of it, the 15K episode will center around the character of Laura, and according to Valentini, “It will be happy, it will be sad, it will be dark, it will be scary, it will be fun, it will be thrilling and it will be exciting, but most importantly it will have almost every single cast member in it.”

Check out the segment and on set report from Pennacchio below.

Now, let us know if you are excited to see the 15K episode of GH via the comment below and congratulate the long-running soap for another historic milestone.

It would be great if he did, but I wouldn’t bet your soul on it.

Now on the other horn, her kids really should be there.

I’d way rather see her hubby, Jonathan Frakes, of StarTrek beam down to surprise her.

He might be busy working. Word here in Hell is that the third & final season of “Star Trek:Picard” is actually going to look more like the 8th season of Star Trek TNG with Riker & the rest of the Enterprise crew on board. Not sure if they’re done filming that or not.

Satan…I’m loving the Picard series. It was fun seeing Riker on it with other Star Trek people…like Seven Of Nine. And Q. Sorry his name has been confiscated by some in-namable group. The recast of the Borg Queen was okay Fairly complicated so will have to watch several times I think. Sorry, I could go on and on.

That’s a fun idea, Rose! And yes, I don’t need to see Luke again.

Genie has to be over the top that she is relevant again and that GH is paying homage to her incredible character. June 17th is marked on my calendar!

Chuckling at the mental slip… I think you mean Genie would be “over the moon.” There is plenty of “over the top” nonsense on GH, but thankfully Genie is usually well clear of it! I’m also looking forward to June 17. And Nancy Lee Grahn is in the photo, so she must be recovered from her surgery, or at least recovered enough to return to work. So good news for her.

Wow! An episode not centered on the Corinthos Crime Clan? Great! I love that Genie is back in a major way. Every time she enters a scene, I find myself smiling and happy. Just like Chase & Brooklyn, Britt, Spinelli, and Diane. Not so much with Michael and Willow, whom he predictably has drained all happiness and empathy from. He’s turned her into a cranky shrew, similar to his mother. I imagine Willow will soon start wearing the clumpy shoes, too.

It’s wonderful that they’re devoting an episode to the legend and icon Genie Francis to celebrate 15,000 episodes, which is an incredible milestone for GH. I look forward to seeing it. But it’s a shame that they have to advertise a special show for Genie to be featured. She should be featured on a regular basis, not a background player for the Spencer/Esme/Nikolas/Ava circus. GH has so many legendary beloved characters that don’t get nearly enough screen time, and instead of writing for those characters, all they keep doing is adding more and more new characters that will inevitably be… Read more »

I maintain my request that General Hospital writers strengthen the characters in the show so that they will confront Carly and stop her in her tracks : Ava and Nina , especially. Nina has been written a tad stronger ; however , Ava is weak. Give these characters more backbone! Plus, if Sonny had grabbed my child as he did Nicholas , that dude wouldn’t have an arm!! Also , why wasn’t Nicholas allowed to protect himself? Let’s do real writing on this show!!!!

Fox Announces Primetime Soap ‘Monarch’ On Fall Schedule

You remember the tawk of the multi-generational musical drama about America’s first family of country music that was supposed to air in January?  Well, eventually due to Covid-19, the plans for its debut got scrapped from a two-night premiere set for Sunday, January 30 as a midseason replacement and kicked back to the fall.

Now, Fox has confirmed that Monarch is indeed on their fall schedule during its annual Upfront presentation on Monday.

The soapy series stars Oscar winner, Susan Sarandon as the Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrall Roman, and her husband Albie Roman played by country singer, Trace Adkins.

In story, Dottie and Albie have created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicky Roman played by Anna Friel, will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

No word yet from Fox on what night of the week Monarch will land on the full fall schedule.  Stay tuned.

So, glad that Monarch will finally makes it debut? Does it interest you … or sound like another Nashville mixed with Dallas retread? Comment below.

The CW Cancels ‘Dynasty’; Show Will End With Current Fifth Season

As some had suspected, with ailing ratings and virtually no promotion, the CW’s reboot of Dynasty has been canceled.  The primetime soap will end at the end of its current fifth season, meaning no season six as die-hard fans and the cast and crew had hoped for.

Dynasty has been a soap on steroids, with snappy dialog, over-the-top storylines, and some wonderful performances especially from series lead, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon).  Elizabeth tweeted upon the news of the cancellation: “SO PROUD OF MY BEAUTIFUL DYNASTY FAMILY!!”

According to Deadline, the show had been kept in production partly because of the revenue it generated with its deal with Netflix.

The cast includes: Daniella Alonso as Cristal Carrington, Elaine Hendrix as Alexis Carrington Colby, Rafael de la Fuente as Sammy Jo Jones, Sam Underwood as Adam Carrington, Michael Michele as Dominique Deveraux, Robert Christopher Riley as Michael Culhane, Sam Adegoke as Jeff Colby, Maddison Brown as Kirby Anders, Adam Huber as Liam Ridley, Eliza Bennett as Amanda Carrington and Grant Show as Blake Carrington.

CW’s Dynasty was the reboot of the classic 80’s ABC primetime version, which aired from 1981-1989, with a modern twist to several of the characters and stories.

So, sad to know there will be no more Dynasty on the CW? Do you think the show could be shopped somewhere else? Comment below.
