The nurses ball was started in 1994 by the great Claire Labine. Is this really the best they could do? 2014 & 2015? Moronic!

LOL… right ? ALL soaps saw an uptick.. in ratings bonanza… and they go with this? b rated stuff. plus overkill on Sonny.. w/ all Carly ?

plain out dud

I do have my own wish list… like @Dan post… for whatever reason.. @ABC chooses not to retell past serial. I never watched General Hospital.. when the most talked about story BJ Heart

that would be FANtastic

I’m with you, Jimh. The earliest Nurses’s Balls were the best! The last several years, boring. I want to see the Nurse’s Ball episode with Monica, Alan and Kevin as babies, singing in high chairs, (don’t remember which year that was), but, it was a memorable scene. If 2014 and 2015 are all they show, I can see fans not tuning in. I miss the good ole days of great GH storylines. It’s gotten a little better, more recently, but still not up to par. Also, is anyone else getting tired of these recent flashbacks about Michael, Chase, Willow, Sasha… Read more »

Through June 12 indicates 3 weeks of all Nurses Ball episodes. Would Frank dare show episodes before he became EP? So far all the Friday repeats have been shows he’s overseen. The ABC/People special on soaps would be a great impetus to rerun a week of preparation for Luke & Laura’s wedding. At the end of the last “fresh” episode on May 21, it would be interesting to have some sort of visual effect of Port Charles shutting down with a “To Be Continued…” graphic. Not sure if a show named after a medical institution can entirely ignore a worldwide… Read more »

I agree with you, Steve, about Frank showing anything before his time with GH. Don’t think it will happen. Newer fans would really enjoy the earlier Nurse’s Ball episodes in the 90s. They were definitely worth watching.

And, also agree about wrapping up the storylines and then showing brand new episodes.

Hope springs eternal!

Apologies if my reply was confusing. I’m talking about the flashbacks during the new Monday-Thursday episodes, NOT the Friday repeats.

They could always do a Jump as Days did, with the time away dealing with the pandemic, resulting in any lost lives of anyone they’d like to get rid of. What a good excuse to clean and weed out. some of the characters not wanted or needed anymore. I can think of a few, but Iam sure they are on contract, and wouldn’t be agreeable to just being dumped.

will everyone return and look the same if and when the show restarts filming…hope nina finds out Nelle is her daughter before shows run out…Micheal having to marry willow is a lame plot device…you dont have to marry someone to win a custody battle…and it could easily be proven Willow and Micheal werent a couple…stupid silly plotting…why not just hire he as a Nanny…No..now Willow will show her true colors…doing it for herself just to be near the baby-lame!!!

Michael, Could you perhaps explain or shed some light on why GH and ABC won’t air any past episodes from before 2014? I read on another site, and I don’t know how true this is, that it has to do with the fees they would have to pay to air those old episodes, royalties to the actors that appeared on those shows, royalties for the music rights, that sort of thing, which would make it cost prohibitive to air. Again, not sure if there is any truth to that. Or is it possible that Frank Valentini is making the choice… Read more »

I don’t have any direct knowledge but it might be something as simple as the archiving wasn’t very well done back in the day. Maybe Frank chooses shows from his tenure because he archived them a certain way and knows how to find them. Right now, if people aren’t working, maybe there’s no one available to search through the older episodes. Just some ideas! Stay safe, everybody.

Steve

Interesting idea, but all episodes since the show went to one-hour in 1978 are saved. And key storylines (I.e. L&L’s wedding, BJ’s death) can easily be traced to air dates.

Much to ABC’s credit, nearly every episode is still available on YouTube.

As for paying royalties… Recently, they re-aired the 3-Carly/AJ’s death episode. The large amount of non-contract performers in that episode would hardly be different than some pre-2012.

I think Satan (below) might have it right… they can’t accommodate the advertisements they are contractually obligated to provide if the shows were longer then. And they certainly aren’t going to pay someone to go and try to edit them down. It has to be easier to stick with shows at the current length.

Well, aside from my previous comments about Valentini’s ego not allowing anything to be seen from before 2012, there’s also something else that happened to the show once he and his pal Ron took over. The show got shorter. Visibly so. There was about 38 minutes of actual episode per hour prior to February 2012. It’s now down to barely 35 minutes…. and given the artificial editing that has taken place during the pandemic to stretch out the number of episodes in the can, even half of that is flashbacks. Some of them from the same damned episode!! And even… Read more »

Dan, your so on it, I to think its odd that GH which has a super rich history is limiting itself by only showing repeats of shows from FV time there. Is the royalties for those shows that much? ABC owns its soaps/ or GH, unlike CBS or NBC, and on top of that their own by Disney, how cheap is Disney if they are putting restrictions on what is allowed to air? I just think its a shame that again GH has limit itself to just 2012 to present time. So yeah, Michael, can you investigate for us?

Yes, it’s odd. Both Robert and Anna are waxing poetic about Holly so you expect a flashback from those days.

Steve
Guest

ABC would have to pay Emma Samms whenever they show any flashbacks of Holly.

Because Robert doesn’t have a set of his own, there’s not a logical place for a still photo (which costs zero) to appear. Anna wouldn’t have one, and Felicia wouldn’t keep one at The Floating Rib.

Davy

I was thinking the same thing! They couldn’t even show a photo of Holly? More recent viewers haven’t a clue who she is. How are they supposed to care?

Well I have been so bored with gh lately….the flashbacks are endless and serve no purpose other than to stretch the show out till the 21st. I won’t be wasting my time watching repeat nurses ball episodes. They were barely watchable the first time.

I wish GH would show the Nurse’s Balls in order from the beginning. Why the 2014 & 15? Let’s see Robin Scorpio and Jason Morgan. Let’s see Alan Q and original Emily sing.

To those who were rejoicing over the orange one’s victory back in 2016? I do not want to be the one who told you so, but damn it, I told you so. We could not have asked for a worst president to “lead” us through this pandemic. I knew he would be an unmitigated disaster but never in my wildest nightmares did I imagine he would be this horrific.

And let the backlash (and accolades) begin… Harry, of course, you are absolutely correct. Yet there have been countless instances since that victory (and even during the preceding campaign; e.g., “grab ’em by the p…y”; mocking a disabled reporter, etc.) that would constitute “I told you so” moments. Every time he opens his mouth (or tweets), he makes matters worse. No empathy. No concern for the dead and ill. No plan. No regard for science or scientists. No consistency. No class. No intellect. No competency. No attention to detail. No moral compass whatsoever. Only a laser focus on getting reelected… Read more »

Harry,et al,
I have never felt so alone, untaken care of by a president who is supposed to lead and protect us, not one that I feel we need protection from
My one little consolation is that he is having that long swab stuck up his nose every day, if he indeed is truthful about his daily testing.
Maybe it will pull that little pea brain out one of those times.

Breaking News

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
