Fans are eagerly awaiting the debut of Dreamliner reteaming Easton and St. John  Thus far their collaborations have been nothing short of stellar.

    Michael Easton seems like he has a good sense of humor. I’m sure he’ll be a success at this convention. Heck, I’d like to go just to see what hair products he uses. His hair is awesome! And, like Maura West, all different styles and lengths look good on him. Oh, to be talented AND beautiful!

    I love this guy! So glad they’ve given him a character this 13th time around with a personality. Glad they’ve limited his brooding and replaced it with great zingers and one liners. I also lovebhow the

      I also love how the characters are all crossing over more and aren’t limited to just 3 or 4 in their clique. I love that he’s friends with women(tracey and hayden) and its not about him trying to bed either of them. These types of friendships and relationships exist in the real world ya know? Truly enjoying him now that he’s not just a stick in the mud and not paired with sam.

        Agree with everything you said…yet I feel like a romance is down the road for him with Hayden…though who knows? He and Tracy have a great rapport. ( she’s been looking great these days and though I like this new, amiable Tracy…seems like the days of Quartermaine snark are really gone for good. Sigh, those were some classic GH scenes).

        Love Michael Easton.

    I attended the precursor to Comic Con, Gen Con, back when I was just a teen. LOVED IT! I’ve always wanted to go to the San Diego Comic Con. I’m sure Michael will be treated well by the fans.

      MB…Lucky you! I have had a similar experience. I started going to StarTrek conventions which then have grown to include comics and other sci-fi. I still go. And with StarTrek 50th anniversary celebrations this year Comic Con will be even better.

        Rebecca…I sure what you listed for Comic Con and tons more of our favorites. Nice place to drop out for a while. Dpn’t know if you are into Trek, but it’s stories all centered around the best humans can be, diversity, working together, and hope. Entertainment could sure use a big dose of that today.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.
