For me, I have always loved Liz with Jason (Billy or Steve). For me it must be a preference in general for Liz over Sam. Jason and Sam are a bore to me, but I know we all have our preferences.

I Agree . about Jason and Sam. This version is even worse then last version.

I second that. I just don’t see any chemistry between them.

Susan < I love Jason and Sam together. I love Nick and Elizabeth together.

Billy Miller and Rebecca Herbst have great chemistry. Kelly Monaco and former Jason, Steve Burton had chemistry. Now that Billy Miller is Jason, the chemstry game changed. I hope TPTB take advantage of Billy And Rebecca’s chemstry instead of trying to force the old chemistry of Steve and Kelly onto Billy…that ship has passed. Also the best ever chemistry that Kelly had with someone has always been Michael Easton, no matter who he is playing. You really have to go with what works.

I have to agree, while I’m not a huge fan of Kelly Monaco, I do love her chemistry with Michael. That man can make anyone likeable. Haha!


Yes he does!

I totally agree with Yvonne’s comments, as well as Michelle’s. The writers would be doing everyone a great service by seeing who has the better chemistry with whom when new actors come on the show. Billy Miller and Becky Herbst bring out the best in each other; I can’t say the same for Billy and Kelly.

I disagree… Billy and Kelly have great chemistry. I prefer Billy in the role… I would rather Liz be with Rick, Frank or in a perfect world a not so dead AJ. Sam and Jason belong together end of story!

Who is Frank?

Donny Darko’s friend who likes to dress up as a bunny?

sorry, meant for it to say Franco…auto correct changed it to Frank for some reason!

No won’t be voting 4 Liason. I’d vote 4 JaSam if they’re in it.

Loathe Liz with Jason. To me her true love will always be Lucky. But until she stops lying to get her way don’t see her working with anyone.

It’s a soap everyone lies. JaLammers need to realize this is a soap and not real life and Lucky was her childhood not her adulthood.


Im sorry but i will not be voting for Liz and Jason. She lied to every one about who Jason really was.And kept it secret for months.Did yall forget that.Jason(Billy Miller) and Sam(Kelly Monaco) belong together.Sorry.Liz has always lied where Jason is concered.Oh if yall will remember Liz could never accept Jasons way of life.The life of being in the mob.Thats why he chose Sam cause she accepted him and everything about him.

Yes, I’m voting for Liz&Jason, what an accomplishment to get a soap couple competing with primetime couples! Every soap fan (except Jasammers of course, lol) should be voting on this poll! It’s great exposure for GH, especially. I am, admittedly, more Liason than Jasam, but I honestly would vote for Jasam if they were the ones on the poll. I’d vote for any soap couple that has the cajones to go up against Clexa! LOL

They’re okay but none of Billy Miller’s GH pairings grab me. They’re a tiny bit better than Jasam but that’s not saying much because those two are a cure for insomnia.

Always been a Liason fan, I loved Steve Burton as Jason and never thought he could be replaced but Billy brought it and I absolutely love Becky and Billy’s chemistry as my liason. liason4life ♡♡♡

Always hated Liz with Jason. I would vote for #jasam though.

Vote jasam hottes couple where u go vote jasam

Jasam!!! All the way!

I loved Liz with Jason when he had no memory and was going by jake, now that he’s ” Jason ” agian I’m sort of turned off by his selfriteous attitude, so he can go back to Sam and be selfriteous and boring together. I prefer Liz to find new love with griffin.

Im voting for Finn and his lizard Roxy…lol


JimL…Finn and Roxie…might as well since we didn’t have any real great daytime romance choices.

I thought romance was what soaps were known for but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. It just seems they miss a lot of steps in between before they “do the thing.” Noted that Anna/Finola said to the shrink in her submission that she and Duke had a real love affair, not just a quickie infatuation that is all too often being passed off as true love.

Is this real? Someone posted that it wasn’t

Yes it is real. It is put out by E! every year. I know some think that Liason fans made it up. Just more misinformation out there.

It’s a long survey with multiple tv couples from primetime. But, you don’t have to answer every matchup. Just pick the ones you like. I didn’t answer for any shows that I don’t watch (which were a lot of them). Liz & Jason were the only daytime couple in the survey.

so cool! that’s awesome for our soaps! have always loved their story. can’t wait to see it continue one day. nothing against the other pairing, really, its just that i want to see more of this story now. always have!

THEY AREN’T A COUPLE ON THE SHOW ANYMORE! And Liz treating Jason like he was one of her sons was a TOTAL BORE. Thank God it’s over, hope it stays that way.

Liason has become my favorite soap pairing since Billy came on the show! He bores me to tears with Sam, the Liason chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS!

I voted for Liz and jason, I would have even if I was not a fan. just cause they were the only daytime couple on the poll.

Jason with Sam, well– Sam absolutely makes me sick, cringe, ufda!
I like Billy/Jason, I really like him but because of stomach wrenching Sam I have to FF Jason .
I just can not, can not have Sam on my screen it is the worst character, ever.
So– until Billy/Jason is far away from Sam I can not watch my Billy 🙁 and that makes me want Sam the next kill-off more than anyone. GH would do much better without that character <—

I'm 100% for Liz and Jason, they were very good together !
LIZ & JASON !!!!


Thank you for publicizing it, Michael.

When Sam put Jason’s son in jeopardy a few years back, that did it for me. I voted for Jason and Elizabeth

LIZ & Jason are not even a couple this is bs and they have no chemistry together you want Liz to pine for a man that has told her repeat lay HE DOENT WANT HER ???? Liz needs to learn NO MEANS NO #jaSam

I have no dog in this fight but must confess that Liz and Jason have a lot more chemistry than Sam and Jason this time around. I am not sure why–who can explain this intangible thing called chemistry?
That said, I want Lizzy to run away from Jason with nary a look back.

When did Jason say No? Plus if you look at the polls there were a lot of couples on there that were not couples. This is a big accomplishment for daytime

Hated Jason with Liz. Especially Billy Miller because Jake Doe was so blah. Really love the chemistry between Billy and Kelly! It is off the chart sexy! I am so happy to finally see Jason Morgan emerging!

Wow…how cool is that! No matter who your soap favorites are, the fact that out of hundreds of couples, down to the top 64, a daytime couple is still hanging in there and representing General Hospital. Way to Go Liz & Jason!!

Agree, great to see a soap couple on the list, regardless of who it may

Liason fans rock!

When a TV show has to write Elizabeth telling a lie in order for JaSam to reunite when they had NO interest in each other says a lot!

The voting is not going their way. So far they only have 30%.

30% is GREAT considering which couple they’re up against. Clexa’s voters are very determined and they are legion, LOL. They won the March Madness e! poll, I believe. I know they were in the final 2.

Isn’t that the poll that Liarson fans got caught padding. Lol.

LOL, I didn’t hear about that .. no, there weren’t any soap couples in the March Madness poll. Jasam was on e!’s Valentine’s poll a couple of years ago though, so I hear

I voted! I emailed the link to my friends and family who watch the show, or used to at least. It’s so cool for Day Time to be represented in this poll ! I think that’s almost more important than who the couple is 🙂

I felt the same way—any recognition this genre can get can only help. Really makes me sad that the numbers for all the shows are as low as they are and that we only have 4 soaps as opposed to the nice handful we used to have. It helps that I do like Jason and Liz as much as I do.

I don’t like Liason – but hell ya I’m voting for the only daytime couple to make the poll… gotta represent the genre!!

Proud to be a Liason fan. Whether it’s Steve or Billy, Rebecca brings first rate classy love in the afternoon!!!!

I so agree!!!

Rebecca and Billy are great together! I’ve been watching her since was a kid.Her acting is surpassed! Liaison

Love Jason, Elizabeth, bk as a couple Love them
Reunite them bk together bk on track Jason, bk as a Quartermaine. & Elizabeth, being Mrs Quartermaine love Sam, find a new love. Love Sam, be Elizabeth’s Sister. Love this new twist come to the light. PLEASE,

I think its funny that liason fams are as crazy as her

I couldn’t agree more Terri!! Sam and Jason have always found there way back to each other and anyone with half a brain should see that!!

Right. When the ONLY reason JaSam is together is because Elizabeth had to be written OCC and the duo never once recognized each other says a lot about their so called lurve….

Exactly. Liz was thrown under the bus to make Jasam happen. Even a non-shipper can see that.

I sometimes have to wonder if Liason fans even watch the show. Billy had foggy memories about Sam from the beginning. He was living with Liz and Helena brainwashed him to kill Sam and he couldn’t do it because he had memories about making love to Sam. That was his first memory of Sam which happened before he fell in love with Liz. Seriously, get your facts straight. I am not a Jasam fan either as I am just not crazy about this BM in the role of Jason but it irks me when Liason fans keep spouting off incorrect info like its gospel.

Liz has been known to lie and manipulate to get her man and then regret it and cry and cry when she gets caught. How was this any different?

In any case, I am surprised that they made it to this poll. They have no chemistry and there are so many better couples on the soaps: Patch/Kayla, Abby/Chad, Julian/Alexis, Franco/Nina, Victor/Nikki, Jack/Phyllis etc. etc. The list goes on…..

Sorry I meant Jason, not Billy.

Sorry won’t be voting for a fake couple. There never was a Liz and Jason. Now if There were a Jason and Sam I’d be voting.

Were jasam even a option BC if they were I never saw and highly doubtful to me that liaison was ahead of them with anything all polls I’ve seen liaison comes nowhere close to jasam

Regardless of who you support as a couple support of GH and soaps in general should be first. GH is the only show representing daytime! Vote!

Jason and Sam fans are actively voting for the other couple. Instead of doing what would give GH more exposures . Sad and petty. However, it proves what I have said all alone ng. They to know that Liason is a better couple then JaLame or they wouldn’t feel threatened. I would never vote for JaLamme so if they didn’t vote I would get that but starting a Twitter campaign to vote for the other couple. Makes them Pathetic.

Instead of galvanizing the troops to vote for Liaison, I would rather folks put their energy into getting folks out there to vote…….vote on real issues, real candidates. What a colossal waste of time and energy.

I can’t believe with so many great soap couples these two are the ones that made it to this stage in the voting– they were alright, but hardly the greatest soap couple let alone the greatest on television and considering most of their story happened in 2015, one wonders how they made it this far.

Your mileage may vary, but Liason has been around since 1999!

You have a point, but since the poll is about TV couple 2016 I was assuming they were speaking about this recent incarnation of Liz and Jason-so my original point stands but I respect fan love for any couple on any soap and meant no disrespect — just don’t think they were a couple long enough this year to make this poll, but you’re right I don’t have the whole history of the couple, so I will gracefully accept your correction

I would like to know who they competed against? Is it just the best couple for G.H.?

No, it’s the best TV couple, PERIOD. e!online is a very well-known website, and covers entertainment of all kinds. Liz&Jason was the only soap couple to make the poll. Competing with the likes of Castle, Bones, Outlander, Once Upon a Time, etc.

Billy Miller is great with any onscreen actress, but I like him best with Sam.

Liz and Lucky for the win.

I am so proud of my OTP making the cut for this contest of predominately prime time powerhouse ships! Liason fans never give up and I am thrilled that we can represent daytime in this contest! I just wish that the GH brass would acknowledge this great opportunity! I’m voting!

I like BH and I like Liz, but I hope that this was the last of her with Jasom for a long time. I do not think pairing Liz with Jason has done anything positive for her in a long time. When Jason helped Liz after Lucky “died” there were amazing scenes! When SBu left and came back I thought there were some good Liason scenes, but I have enjoyed each re-pairing less and less since early 2000. Liz can be such a strong character but I do not enjoy who she is now with Jason. There has just always been some big secret or lie that keeps me from really enjoying the relationship. Let Liz be with a leading man where the story and relationship can be about them. I get that GH probably wants to play off of fan wars, but it is at a detriment to the characters and story. Liz has been stuck with being pulled in the middle of Jason and Sam since like 2006. The character is so much more than that so PLEASE, GH, write for that!!!!

As much as I want a soap couple to win, Liz and Jason just don’t do it for me. Since romance is supposed to be a staple of the soaps, maybe the writers should pick up on the fact that “love in the afternoon” has been MIA for a long time.

I am Jason and Sam all the way. Elizabeth had to lie and scheme to get him because his memory was gone. I am so happy Jason and Sam are together.

Sad thing is Michael. Jason and Sam fans are so jealous of the chemistry of Liason and know they are the better couple. That they are campaigning and voting for a couple they don’t even know. So instead of just not voting because it’s not their couple. They are screwing GH chance to get some real exposure. So pathetic!!!! However, it does show how afraid of the chemistry of Liason. Billy and Be key have so much more chemistry then Kelly and Billly. Every non GH watcher I showed clips to agreed. They agree deep down to or they wouldn’t be so threatened. It’s just St so pathetic to start a Twitter campaign to vote again Liason.

I’m just glad someone from daytime is represented I really liked BH/BM didn’t like the s/l but everyone should be happy soap actors are included if that’s your genre then vote for them-you don’t have to love them.

Loathed Liz and Jason gag worthy at best

As of this posting, they’re at 31.7% to the other couple’s 68.3%. let’s vote for them even if you don’t care for them. It would be great to see a daytime couple get some recognition. It all adds up as a win for all in daytime.

I’m not sure but
Liz and Jason are the only daytime couple, yes?

that’s right, that just shows how many dedicated fans they have! And yet, GH has chosen to never give those fans what they want. I know, I know, they can’t have both Jasam & Liason as endgame. But they could have at least let Liason get married and be happy for a little while (and not with a lie between them either!) Those fans have been waiting 16 years, it’s outrageous for GH to deny them for so long. I wouldn’t blame Liasons if they got fed up and quit watching.

I love seeing my favorite soap couple in a poll with primetime faves of mine like Oliver and Felicity and Castle and Beckett. Love it. Jason and Elizabeth are great.

I consider myself an original Liason fan. I loved SB and Becky’s Liason. When Billy Miller joined GH, I was interested to see how his Jason would work with Elizabeth. Immediately I saw great playful and at times sexy chemistry, but the moment it was clear that he was Jason , I knew the story would be unjust. I knew that eventually BM was brought back to GH to reunite Jasam. So the so called love story we got for Jason and Elizabeth was half hearted, tainted with lies and deceit. I could not get on board with the new Liason, because it was all a big setup for a dramatic jasam reunion. It NEVER EVER was about Jason and Elizabeth. I don’t know how the Liason fans could find any joy in them. However, I do think that Billy & Becky work well together. Too bad they were never intended to be. Just think of Liason was the end game and if the writers wrote a true love story for them. It would have been AMAZING.

As for Jasam, well they never were a couple I enjoyed very much. Still I’m not going to say they are boring , well yes they are boring, but Biilly and Kelly do have chemistry. How can they not. Aren’t they dating in real life. It’s kind of unfair that they get the love story, and Liason got the shaft. I hate that because Jason and Elizabeth really did love each other and mutually agreed to part way. Now with the new re-wright of Liason, they have it almost impossible for them to ever be a couple by having Elizabeth deceive him like she did. Talk about crap all over a favorite couple. That said, I will vote for Liason to honor their history and to help a genre I truly love , Go vote all, do it for GH ! Next year your couple may make the list.

Nope jasam all the way

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

Photo: JPI

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to help his clients lose weight; many of them were celebrities. Simmons himself, admitted to at one time to being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.
