These have to be the cutest things I have ever seen!

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 replacement. GH almost certainly CANNOT afford anymore ratings losses, especially in the all-important 18-49 female demographic.

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, but let’s not tune out. Let’s support this show so we can continue to fight for it, for what we want it to be. If we give up now, we give up more than you may think.

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…

Chris
Chris

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.

Susan M.

Did you ever watch GH ????

Susan M.
Susan M.

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For comments on 9/4 at 2:39p.m.

Scott

No. I just post on GH postings for fun. Of course I [unfortunately] watch it. /sarcasm.

Christy

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 as great a show as we all think it is, it should survive no matter when they show it.

susan M.
susan M.

I agree w/Christy………….

Chris
Chris

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 happening. Any way you slice it at this point, I think GH needs a miracle to survive past its 50th anniversary, sad to say.

Scott

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.

Susan M.
Susan M.

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 (on other channels) or just went elsewhere all together. I would think many of those%2

Christy
Christy

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 can record 2 shows. I’d probably buy another DVD recorder if that happened to me.

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.

Robert in Jersey City
Robert in Jersey City

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.

Chris
Chris

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 to the affiliates. They’ll simply move other syndicated/local shows into that hour.

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 WILL make Katie fail…

Watched them all, Jane Elliott was by far the best, liked Dom’s also.

I will be watching GH Sept. 10 at 2:00p.m… That’s a date……………

We all have to have positive thoughts about GH at 2:00p.m…..And no negative thoughts….We all want GH to be sucessful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And prosper !!!!!! I know I do….

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

aria

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.

Troy Turner

These are cute and all, but has anyone actually seen them played on a station, or during the show yet?

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
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.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

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!!!!!

Dmitri
Dmitri

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!

Christy
Christy

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 vacated by GAA.

and I haven’t seen or heard any ads to tell people that GH is not moving times on that station.

su0000
su0000

The ad’s will be run on the networks who will have the time change..
The networks that will not have the time change will not have the change of time ad’s.

Christy

see Sue’s comment above and mine (her’s at 5:42am) my local ABC needs to say ‘we’re not changing times no matter what you’ve heard’

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
