GH's Ingo Rademacher Clarifies Controversial Tweet: "One Hospital To Kill"!

Ingo Rademacher wraps up his current visit to General Hospital as Jasper Jacks next week on September 26th, but a show source has hinted that the popular leading men may be coming back to Port Charles for more visits down the road!

In the meantime, in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the actor had the opportunity to clear the air in regards to his controversial tweet that he put out in January, when it was announced that then One Life to Live’s Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati were moving over to General Hospital as executive producer and head writer, respectively.

In the tweet, Rademacher seemed to also take to task the handful of actors that were also coming with Cartini to Port Charles.  The tweet in question read, “It seems like the new show should be called, “One Hospital To Kill” Oops to late … I tweeted that.  I’ll take the blame.  Just kidding 🙂 Not.”

Rademacher now tells SOD what he meant by his words: “It was a more of a go at the network because they were killing everything.  I was sitting there one day thinking, this would be appropriate for what they’re doing.  That’s what it seemed like.   Now they did a lot of firing.  It was way overdue for a change there.  So my new name now for the show is ONE HOSPITAL YOU CAN’T KILL.   I think they’re realizing that those talk shows and cooking shows and stuff, it’s just too many of them right now.  You had The Revolution and The Chew and they’re both the same almost.”

“There’s a lot of soap opera fans out there and you really notice it when you get around the country. Everywhere you go people watch the show.  It would be a real shame if they got rid of them altogether.  Maybe people will get more into it now because there aren’t as many choices.  Hopefully, it will pick up more viewers.”

So soapers, what do you think about Ingo’s clarification?  Do you agree?  Would you like to see Ingo back on GH more often? Weigh-in!

I love Ingo– i hope he comes back to GH for good– anything he says is A-OK with me because I know he truly enjoys his time acting on GH and he appreciates his fans !!

I’d love for Jax to once again be a permanent character on GH. Ingo’s a great actor, and the show hasn’t been the same for me since he left.

Ingo’s clarification of the tweet he made in January makes sense. In light of AMC & OLTL being cancelled, it was easy to assume that GH could be next on the chopping block. Fortunately that does not appear to be the case right now–GH is on fire & ABC seems to be taking notice & standing by the show….if only they could have done the same w/ their other soaps! I’ve enjoyed watching Ingo’s return as Jax & will be sad to see him go next week. I hope he will be making more frequent visits to Port Charles!!

Bring him back – bring Melissa Archer to GH, make GH 90 minutes to 2 hrs and combine OLTL with it. Get rid of the Chew and/or Katie Couric!

As much as I’d love to see some sort of combo soap so fans have some of their favorite characters back on screne, going to a longer-than-60-minute-format would kill the ratings; thus, the show. They tried 90 minutes with ANOTHER WORLD when they wanted to spin off TEXAS and it help to kill the show. It never recovered. I don’t want to see that happen to GH.

I would definitely go for a new soap with a combo of characters from cancelled soaps on it.

Not sure if I believe his spin on that one hmmmm. But I love Ingo. He belongs on the GH canvas.

Yes! He should have stayed! In fact he should have never left! He has chemistry with everyone alot of energy and not bad to look at! Can’t blame him for the bash at OLTL crew taking over cause everyone reacted the same way. Now I think it has died down a bit and people are getting used to the EP and HW by looks of the rating and behind the scenes actors say its alot better enviroment to work in then previous. But I satnd by my opinion that along with getting rid of JFP and Guza that Sonny and Jason and Carly should have went not Jax.

susan

sorry remedy i love sonny and jason and can take or leave carly but she is a
main part of gh, so like any other soap u have the good ones and bad ones

but getting rid of sonny would be a bad move for gh

i love maurice aka sonny 100%

and hope Ingo gets to stay or come back

They are not the main part of GH. They are the main cause why Gh lost so many viewers imo. Lets give it a try I say let MB go along with LW with the door open for a return lets see if GH survives. I say it will.

I thought at the time it was a very classless move. Way to backpedal, Ingo. That said, I really like his portrayal of Jax and hope he returns. Soon. He has a lot of chemistry with the cast and he is certainly easy on the eyes. Welcome back Jax!

I think Ingo said what he meant the FIRST time around, and that BLUMBLISH he came up with to JUSTIFY it, just don’t make sense. ” One hospital you can’t kill”. Sometimes people need to own up to what they say and believe.

TnT 2.0 Forever
TnT 2.0 Forever

True, he should just own up to what he said and how he truly feels but I guess he doesn’t want to upset his bosses Carlivati and Valentini or their fans. Everyone seems to think that those two are the best thing ever to happen to soaps. If they truly are the best that soaps have to offer, I will have to stick to watching primetime TV. Thanks but no thanks, rapemance and character-assassinating duo Carlivati and Valentini.

I like Ingo, as an actor and person, though I just don’t understand how one can legally name their child “Peanut.” Anyway, not my child, not my business. However, I think he is backpedaling with his new statement. At the end of the day, who cares?

I was glad to see him back and I do hope he comes back more often. He still has the chemistry with Laura Wright, that is for sure.

I also like Ingo and want to see him on the GH canvas more, but I must admit, that I do not really buy the reasoning he recently gave for his January tweet. I think that he was bitter with his being let go, and the new regime bringing in some of their OLTL characters, but now that he has been brought back to GH, he is backtracking a bit. I remember his comments quit well, as I was a bit taken back by them when I first read them, because I did not see Ingo making bitter remarks like that. Don’t get me wrong, if this is really the case, I understand, and he is certainly entitled to his feelings both then and now. However he meant that comment, I wish him well, and hope to see more of him on GH. Long live General Hospital and Ingo working on it !!!

I would love to see more of Jax but only with a good, well written storyline. His frustration seems to be in line with what the fans were feeling at the time as well. Things have DRASTICALLY improved on GH since Frank & Ron took over.

He was right on the money. But I can do without his character especially in reoccuring roles. The Guza regime watered down his character and basically made him a sacrifice to Sonny. He has no story and when he reappears he just rehashes what was done before. Thats boring.
I miss his days as a corporate raider. If he were written in a strong business story that would work but this temporary back and forth between Carly and Sonny is beating a dead horse. Time for GH to move on. If he cant come back for an extended stay with a strong story I say let him keep moving. Soaps need to return to the days when they wrote long arc stories. Today they just toss in characters and momentary plot twists to spike ratings and then they crash. Its lame. (GH has lost over 100K viewers since the toxic water plot ended, lol)
As far as the saturated Talk show market thats a sign of the times. Just like everyone else networks need to tighten their budget belts so Talk shows arent going anywhere. GH 2 hours? Dream on. One Life coming back, dream on again, lol. Leave Melissa Archer where she is. GH is GH not One Life to Live. We’ve got enough fat to trim with Kris Alderson, Erik Valdez, Richard Steinmetz, Kelly Sullivan, and Chad Duel. None of these peeps could act their way out of a paper bag. Can them all and rehire Stuart Damon, John Lindstrom, Lynne Herring, Kin Shriner.
The migration of OLTL charactes must stop. I have no problem with GH hiring actors from any source. But these actors whether they be from OLTL, ATWT,GL, AW or prime time should play new characters tied to GH history not the characters from their former shows. Again this is General Hospital, not a refugee camp for displaced soap characters and story lines. And I know this wont happen because ABC doesnt have the vision, but Id love to see Cartini ( Frank V and Ron C) replaced by Wendy Riche, Felecia Minei Behr and Michael Malone or Claire Labine. GH needs some down to earth producers and writers that respect the dignity and legacy of the medium. Cartini write/produce GH like its an Itchy and Scratchy cartoon. I’ve never seen such ridiculous fluff and embarrassing melodrama attempting to pass as intelligent serial programming in quite a while.

Why do you still watch GH then?

Remedy

Micheal Malone created the charcter Todd Manning and is a OLTL writer. Frank V was going to follow OLTL with PP online when he was offere the EP of GH at the same time tells you how much he wanted to inherit the mess left after Guza and JFP left. He is doing the best he can to pull GH out of that hole. I used to wwatch GH then I had to tuned out cause GH just plain sucked. Guza and JFP ruined character like Brenda and Jax sacrificed vets like Tony, Bobbie, Laura Scotty Lucy Alan and AJ for three of frons and JFPs favs Sonny, Carly, and Jason which almost destroyed GH thats why they lost fans like me now I am tuning back in cause they want to get rid of that mob element and go back to villians and WSB and OLTL crossovers and thier fans helping GH and ratings. OLTL and GH combined is the future of this soap. GH alone with the same formula it had dream on not going to happen if this soap is going to survive

well personlally i love sonny and jason no matter who is at the helm

have watched maurice benard for 22 ys and steve burton the same
not missed one day even watch it again on soapnet and dvr it also

so you have to support the soap gh if u want it to remain on the air
tony, bobbie, scotty ( who has returned a few times) boring storylinge

lucy gone, alan and aj okay i guess do wish bobbie would return for luke
and lulu as well as laura but things change story lines change and

i guess maurice and steve burton have a huge fan following so thats the way
it is.

have been at daytime emmys seen maurice get out of the limo
and the fans go wild and are crazy about hime
also on the view they commented on him and how popular he is
so sorry but i am a sonny fan

but i do wish and hope you will continue to support gh and the other soaps
on air, but i do feel the mob will be involved so where along the way

Remedy

I respect your opinion but I still feel that they can still go and GH will survive. In fact I think it will continue to get better. The ones I mentioned are just a few that were let go Bobbie/Jackie was rudely dimissed btw. All to give those three more airtime and turn GH into the “godfather” tv series as MB as a Al Pacino. They are overexposed and they have rehashed mob s/ls to death=Boring! That is way it almost tanked in fact it was in last place! Ratings = Viewing and GH wasn’t being viewed with that trio. The only reason they won an emmy was Luke’s intervention nothing to do with those three.I was could not watch my soap GH anymore cause it wasnt GH anymore imo. But I have to thank them cause I started to watch OLTL! The soap that out of the three should have been left on the air imo. I will not support GH if they stay with the same formula. Why would I support a show that I left if the same reasons still remain. JMO. Thanks

——————————————————————————————————————-I don’t follow you. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing, I just DON’T follow you.

Remedy

1loveabcsoaps….There is alot of history here with both of these characters/actors and how they played Todd. I asume U watched OLTL and the character of Todd fromthe beginning 1993 that Rogers Todd is a rapist. Not only did he lead the gang rape on Marty but he tried again and that where he got his scar from Luna. Then he terrorized Nora blaming her for sending him to jail for the rape. Its is known behind the scenes that Roger was very uncomfrontable with turning his character into a romantic lead or a “good guy” because fans on the streey where sayin alledgly “rape me” to him so he always fought that his character never be redeemed and tortured for what he did. even when TBTB wanted th match him with his victim Marty like the next Luke and Laura he left the show over it. They say he only agreed to Blair pairing only. Never to be confrontable with going women to women and have his character to really have great difficulty forming relationships with trust or love because he was his wrost enemy. Tea he paid her to marry him and she fell for him but he was unable to “sleep” with her . He saw her as a poscession and really abuse her. It was not pretty at all. He actually punched her in the face knocked her out era of 1997. He slpet with her once but that s/l was wierd and out of character and the moment he did he regretted it and paddled back to Blair. He left the show soon after that. It was said he was tired of playing Todd. Anyways TSJ took over the role and turned it into his own doing very non Todd things still doing very bad stuff like Knocking pregStar down the stairs something RHTodd would never do to Star and having a relationship with Marty and other women. Something when RHTodd came back as Todd said he would never do and said why didnt you know then it wasnt me?? Anyways TSJ became his brother Victor. RC wrote that to explain thetwo Todds story. Victor was not the rapist so he was able to form relationships and make love to women with ease (Tea says this to RHTodd) whereas RHTodd was not. So U see what I am saying when they might as well left TSJ in the role if they are going to rewrite RHTodd?

I get what you’re saying and these are some very astute observations. But to me they are prime examples of why I dont like Cartini. They always attempt to revisit history with the intent of respinning it. That is ambitious, but its also dangerous in a medium where fans watch these stories for decades. It can work but it has to be done with care, thought and respect. To me Cartini always do it to create sensational stories but they dont take the proper care to not insult the audience that watched the original story.
In the final analysis of the tale of 2 Todds, they just wanted an excuse to bring RH back to the role of Todd to spike ratings. They had to wipe out a decade of story and marginalize an actor who had become enormously popular in the role ( TSJ). In the end they ended up alienating tons of fans and just kicking a gifted actor to the curb all for ratings.
It’s all too haphazard for me. Of course I watched the story to see how it would play out because I was a huge fan of RH in the beginning. But I found the entire affair to be convoluted and rather silly in the end. It was just good to see RH again.

What you all said. Maybe Ingo meant what so many thought he did when he tweeted it in January, but I would think that he definitely means what he says now.
Tweeting your instant thoughts can get a bit dicey at times.

Whatever, the past is that past, and I’d love to see him back on GH full time and in a great storyline. The guy has talent and the character is just as good.

I had the ultimate pleasure of meeting Ingo at one of his last fan events in NY back in October 2011. Yes, we would all love to have ‘Jax’ back on the canvas full time, myself included. He has been my favorite guy since ‘Lois’ burst open his office doors and he was standing there playing that arcade game where he was shooting at the ducks! With that said…. when Ingo was talking to us about his leaving the show, selling the LA home and moving full time to Hawaii with the family, he was beyond thrilled. His heart is in Hawaii and he was SO happy to be raising the family there, as he said, at least for a few years. He said he would love to come in and out when story line dictated. I feel some ‘Jax’ is better than no ‘Jax’. And all that really matters is that he’s really happy with the family in Hawaii.

He meant what he said and although I do like Jasper Jax, I do not like him. He had no idea what he was getting when he made that comment and the show is the best on ABC or any other network for that matter. Y&R is in the toilet and I just cannot hardly wait every day to see my show. Love it.

I hope he come back again, and again but now, I hope they bring back the original Aussie Tristan Rogers. How come everybody visit has been longer than his? He was only around for 4 freaking days, And Robert Scorpio is legendary and led GH through out the 80s when Luke/.Laura had left the building. It’s time to bring him back and for a long stay.

I certainly love Ingo/Jax on Gen Hospital and would be open to his returning to Port Charles whenever the soap looks like he is needed. Would love to see him and Carly reunited. I love Johnny but think he should be with someone else – maybe one of the new nurses. Also find Jax and Sonny’s ongoing “feuds and dislikes” very interesting.

Yes, it’s wrong that he’s not on GH all of the time rather than “visits.” He’s just one of the people of Port Charles – and having him gone is wrong on lots of levels. They’ve made huge improvements with the show – adding him as a ‘keeper’ again would be appropriate and another right action to take.

I adore Ingo and his character Jax is why I have watched GH for so long. I want Jax back on GH. He is needed. Not as a door mat for Carly but the character that I fell in love with. The charming, loving, best man on the show character. The strong corporate raider, business man that loves his family more than anything. GH needs this kind of character. Jax/Ingo should have never been off of GH. Happily I think the new regime has finally seen that Jax is needed.

i agree tiffany ABC sucks only watch GH no prime time shows at all

but will watch kelly aka sam on dwts until she gets booted offf

but all the dwts need remember she was the 1st winner of the 1st season
and abc never points that out i guess cause she is on a soap opera
all they support is the athletes and the olympic or gold medal winners which is
fine but you would thinkbut they would support her being on a ABC show
and the 1st time winner dont you think? but i guess soap opera are not
a big selling point to the promos for abc

so we all soap fans need to vote and support kelly and hope all soap fans do

Bring Jax back full-time. But let him be more like the “old” Jax, cocky, funny, adventurous, great businessman, as well as a loyal family guy. Plus, there is going to have to be a new, major family dynasty since the Quartermaines are falling on hard times. I like him with Carly way better than Johnny. The Johnny/Carly matchup never did it for me unless Johnny is designated “cougar” bait on GH.

Dancing with the Stars Juniors

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Photo Credits: CBS, JPI, ABC

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!

For archived and past episodes of Soap Nation Live, you can go to the official show page on Spreaker.com here.

Now, listen to the broadcast with Joshua, Hudson, and Joe above, and then let us know via the comment section below what was your favorite moment in the broadcast.
