GH has to start gaining viewers NOW. These most recent ratings are NOT a good sign for the show, because it needed to take as many viewers as possible to 2 pm as it could. GH is going to actually have network competition with CBS’s The Talk and NBC’s Days of Our Lives, in some parts of the country. GH CANNOT bank on people switching from The Talk and Days to GH. Both of those shows’ ratings have moved up this year, and they are growing their audiences. Remember, ABC can still cancel GH. GAA doesn’t have to be its… Read more »

Chris, I agree with you, And I’ll go further to entreat anyone who has ever enjoyed GH to come back NOW. I would ask you to put aside that which you don’t like and concentrate on what you do. Stories shift, actors come and go, regimes rise and fall; it’s all part of this medium. But if you want even the most remote chance that you will get what you want from GH, you have to watch in both the good and the bad times. I feel this is a good time in GH’s history, but others disagree. That’s fine,… Read more »

Moving GH to 2pm was a dumb move, IMHO. “Katie” should’ve been put at 2pm with GH staying at 3pm. I watch DAYS from 2-3 since I watch Y&R/B&B from 12:30-2pm. So I won’t likely be watching GH much.

I don’t like the time change either… It’s all abc/disney’s fault…They started the ball rollin!!!!!! I never watched the soaps on the other channels..I strickly watched abc….And started watching them with my mom.And have been watching them ever since…

Katie is a syndicated show, not an ABC network show. ABC was not going to give an hour back to local affiliates that would be sandwiched between 2 ABC network hours, so something had to give.

Oh you watch Y&R and B&B… Never watched them .. As i said I liked to watch ABC and nver watced the soaps on the other channels…You must be a loyal soap fan of those two soaps….And I am a loyal soap fan of GH..,And positive thoughts for GH in it’s new timeslot…I don’t have negative thoughts for Gh at all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think a lot of people that tuned into The Talk were people who no longer had OLTL to watch… now they can come back to ABC to watch another excellent soap opera with a few familiar faces added in. I think GH will survive the time switch, but not sure Katie will be great after the first few weeks. used to be a great line up in the afternoons: OLTL, GH and Oprah. I don’t think it’s dumb to move stuff around – they’ve got that time slot that tanks with everything else but a soap. If GH is… Read more »

That’s wishful thinking. I disagree with that and highly doubt that most displaced OLTL fans have been watching The Talk in the last 8 months. Looking at past ratings for the first part of 2011, The Talk was pulling in 2.0-2.5 million viewers regularly even when OLTL was still on the air, same as in early 2012 after OLTL went off. Like it or not, The Talk has cultivated an audience of its own that’s most likely not interested in soap operas. GH CANNOT bank on people switching from The Talk over to GH and I just don’t see that… Read more »

I tuned into “The Talk” because “As the World Turn” was cancelled. I never watched “One Life to Live”, hence why I don’t want “General Hospital” in its timeslot. It’ll fail and get canceled.

Gh won’t fail in it’s new timeslot… We need positive thought not negativiity.,.I watched AMC . OLTL & GH……My other two soaps are gone ..So will alway’s support this soap…,.You are a soap fan & why don’t you support Gh or whatever soap you like to watch…I am here to support my last soap on abc 100% …………………………………………………..I watched the talk once when I was on vacation & that was it…I rather watch drama than a lot of talk and info..,.

Chris – I said a lot, not most. A lot went to other soaps or shows on other channels. (And a lot to me is not as many as Neilson’s counting). I would think many of those that turned to find see Revulsion or GAA have been channel surfing just waiting for something better to be in that slot. Scott – same difference. Your soap was cancelled and you turned into the Talk. I don’t think GH will tank or get cancelled due to a time change — and in my area it is NOT changing times. I hope you… Read more »

To anyone who has a DVR. If you change your recording to “series” your DVR will record any time the show is on, and you don’t have to change any times. I record the SERIES for GH, OLTL, AMC and Brothers and Sisters. So if it’s on Soapnet, ABC or whatever, it is recorded. IE Brothers and Sisters is on ABC sometime Sunday nights I think. It is recorded by my DVR even though I didn’t even know it was on that station.

Obviously the producers don’t know anything about DVRs.
Same with Live! With Kelly…my DVR is still recording her show w/o changing anything.

As much as I’d like to see GH survive, I sadly think that the time slot move, one of the first such moves in its entire history, will be disastrous. If GH was faring so poorly in the time slot it occupied for decades, what makes people think that the numbers will be much better an hour earlier? If the content and quality of the show remains as it is currently, this move will be akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

the plus side is now there’s no break in soaps….go right from B&B or Days to GH….when I’m home, I hate that empty hour.

this way when Katie fails, ABC can drop classic soaps in her time slot and it wont cost anything and we’re back in business.

How Katie’s show performs will almost certainly have no effect on GH’s fate. Katie is a syndicated show (NOT an ABC network show) from ABC/Disney’s production arm. The hour where Katie will widely air (3 pm) is being given back to local ABC affiliates. (While it will air on mostly ABC affiliates, it will also be seen on a handful of NBC, CBS, FOX affiliates.) In other words, ABC will no longer program that hour and will program one less daytime network hour as of next Monday, Sept. 10. And even if Katie fails, that time slot will still belong… Read more »

Here it goes for Sept. 10 (Mon.) My cable Co. Has GH at 2:00p.m. on ABC , at 3:00p.m. on Abc IS Steve Harvey & last but not least at 2:00p.m. on Wesh (NBC) is Katie Couric… Katie isn’t on after Gh on my cable Co…

Chris, Don’t buy in to the network propaganda here. Everyone knows that Katie was brought in to kill GH. It just so happens that enough stations didn’t want to buy in that they HAD to go the syndication route. Regardless of which station she appears on in your area-which 95% of the affiliates WILL be ABC affiliates (if you don’t believe me, Michael states that himself)-if she’s doing it on ABC’s dime, she’s an ABC show. You don’t move GH up an hour, “strongly encourage” affiliates to air Katie at 3/2-and expect nothing in return-this is why soapers MUST and… Read more »

if people want to stay positive I suggest they stay far away from the total negativity at SOC..
I think GH will do much better in the new time slot!! 🙂
GH needs all the support a fan can give now, if it is to survive we fans need to rally with support

well, i’m not sure how the time slot change is all over the country but i’m from colorado springs , and GH has always aired at 2 pm and is staying in that same time slot, its actually competing against Katie in this market, and actaully katie follows dool, so its confusing, percentage wise, i guess the change in time is higher,across the country but like i said its not the same everywhere. either way, i’m watching GH.

I don’t know about other parts of the country, but here in both the Baltimore tv market and the DC tv market, GH is STAYING at 3PM!!!!! The networks have been running those time change promotions, and the local stations immediately follow them w/promos that say they’re keeping GH at 3pm………the business of tv makes no sense……..

Christy

that’s what I’d wish our local ABC would do! Fans of GH have obviously heard about or read about the time change -and I just found out today (just by reading tv listings online) that it is NOT changing here either. My local station has only been promoting Katie’s showing coming next week at 3pm.

Those were good! I liked Jane’s the best.
I am hoping to see lapsed viewers return…I am doing my part by posting on social networks and telling everyone I know. If we all do that, maybe we can keep GH from the cancellation bin! It truly has been FANTASTIC lately and just keeps improving.
and Katie won’t even air at 3pm in my area!!!!!

I will be watching Days. GH is boring now, and Days is my favorite soap. I hope that GH moves back to its original time slot, because The Talk and Days will steal viewers. They’ve already grown an audience and upcoming storylines will end up making Days’ ratings skyrocket, which will cause GH ratings to plummet!

Warning! GH is not changing times in all areas! I had already changed my recorder times and then kept seeing ads for Katie on at 3pm after GH… well if GH was moving up an hour Katie would be on at 2pm here… so I checked the tv listing (online) for today – GH on at 2pm and checked for 9/10 and it’s still on at 2pm! So it’s not moving. Think I’ll tape from 1-3 just incase on Monday. My ABC currently has a local show on from 3-4 and is moving that show up into the slot being… Read more »

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

What do you think of GH producing and airing this special episode? Comment below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
