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!

lol

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.

CONGRATS!!

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

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 !!!!

Nope

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

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Courtesy/ABC

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Courtesy/ABC

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

Courtesy/ABC

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Jophielle Love Talks On Violet’s Emotional Scenes with Finn, the Loss of Gregory, and Taylor Swift

During General Hospital’s recent episodes surrounding the death of Gregory Chase (Gregory Harrison), who succumbed to complications from ALS, many in the cast delivered touching performances; including Jophielle Love (Violet).

In story, Violet learns of her grandfather’s passing when she comes home from school and her father, Finn (Michael Easton) sits her down to explain that Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Violet’s reaction was one of devastation and tears.

Michael Fairman TV caught with Jophielle on the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmy Award ceremonies, where she was a nominee for Best Original Song for the song she co-wrote, “Shine.” The track was first heard back on a December 2023 episode of the ABC daytime drama series and is currently available on Spotify and other music streaming platforms.

When talking about the departure of Gregory Harrison, and Violet’s reaction to her grandpa’s passing, Love shared, “Well, I was very tired from the taping of the three-day wedding, so I already had the tears in me. I knew that I was always going to see him (Gregory Harrison) in real life, but I was also very, very sad he was leaving the show. He was such a delight to work with.”

When Violet saw how difficult it was for her on-screen dad, Finn, to cope with with the death of Gregory, Love shared, “It’s hard for Violet, but Michael and I, we still see each other and he’s always happy (in real life). But, those scenes were hard. I was comforting him.”

Receiving her first Daytime Emmy nomination as songwriter was a thrill for Jophielle: “Well first of all, I was jumping up and down and Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) came and told me while I was on set. I was just so excited.”

Photo: JPI

Since pop superstar, Taylor Swift, started at a very young age as a singer and a songwriter, does Love see herself as a mini-Taylor? Jophielle emphatically stated, “I’m a mini Me“.  As to what she thinks of the record-setting Swift’s music, and if she likes her work. Love shared, “Yeah, yeah … so, so…”

What did you think of Jophielle’s performance during the passing of Gregory? And her comments here on Gregory Harrison, Michael Easton and Taylor Swift? Comment below.
