Grease is the word! Everyone has been talking about the 3-hour outstanding performance of the cast and crew that brought Grease: Live to life on FOX on Sunday night.

The ambitious production drew an average of 12.2 million viewers, led by the performances of Aaron Tveit (Danny), Vanessa Hudgens (Rizzo), and Julianne Hough (Sandy).

One of the more notable songs from the motion picture version, “You’re The One That I Want”  which includes the words “electrifying” which was included in the telecast was spoofed on Monday by the Corinthos men of General Hospital!

In a posting on Maurice Benard’s Instagram, Chad Duell (Michael), Bryan Craig (Morgan) and Maurice (Sonny) belt out a refrain, well sort of, from Grease: Live!

Watch the guys after the jump! Then, let us know if you got a kick out of it … and which actor 🙂 would you cast in production of Grease ....  and if you watched Fox’s Grease: Live last night!

CeeCee’s got chills [For Sonny] their multiplying, and shes losing control, by the power Maurice is supplying, its ELECTRIFYING! ELECTRIFYING! [Your husband says] “You better shape up, cause you have a man, and my heart is set on you, You better shape up, you better understand, to my heart you must be true!” Oooooo Ooooo O!

No worries, though. Jude knows he’s the one and only for me. We fit…a little kidding around doesn’t hurt!! HaHa. Can you imagine my falling for Sonny? Right! When elephants next in trees!!
I loooove this. Looove you. Soon.

Hey, CeeCee…’when elephants nest in trees’…LMAO!!!!! Guess what…I’m still laughing!!!!! BTW, CeeCee, it’s too bad that you’re not a female comic (or whatever). I mean…some of your posts are so comical…and you make me LOL!!!!! Thank You.

Thank you, Jay. My jokes are king of corny. And, much of my speechifying comes from old Scotland; thanks to my Nanna and Granda. You should meet my husband, he really is funny. I cannot compare to Harry. Timmm or to jimh. Later, my friend.

Wow! All three of them should quit GH and head straight to Broadway! Is there no end to their talent?!

AWww, Lil’ Angel…I know, I know. But, it’s a spoof….a charicature of themselves. These three are known to put on a silly, stupid, immature act….all in fun. While I want to shoot Sonny with my eyes through the screen; as I said, I do get Maurice’s and ‘gang’ twisted humor. My brain sort of works the same way.
But, I do appreciate your sarcasm. Later.

None of them match Aaron Tveit’s performance. Aaron sang the songs better than Travolta did!

No waaayyy…John and Olivia ARE the number one Danny and Sandy…tv live stage version was ok and i liked the diversity in the casting and i did enjoy-best part was the dancing but the movie version is far more superior!-Why its greased lightning…lol

Oh, my! That’s like saying a two-bit artist paints LA GIOCONDA ( Mona Lisa) better than da Vinci. John Travolta and Olivia Newton John are a classic couple with a classic song.

It was cool. I liked it. They seem to be close and having fun. Thats what life is all about. We throw anger at these guys characters all the time but this reminds us they are human and all three seem to be good guys.

Exactly, Timmm. They are human. As for myself, anyone with a sense of humor is welcome at my table. Anyone who can take a moment in time and monkey around to remind us to laugh at ourselves and appreciate the world’s laughter is food for the soul. A few years ago, my husband dressed up as Rizzo for Halloween. We laugh, we cry, we argue, we love. Later, babes.

Michael : ” the “power” most supplying” Bryan : ” most supplying” Maurice : ” it’s electrifying” is this a spoof … in any way supporting… the Corinthos’ MEN hum drum one of two things damage control…. ( ie: Maurice Benard and Laura Wright last interview ! blech! ) don’t bite the hand that feeds you ? this is not the best part of GH… in any way shape or form the scene in the coffee warehouse… by the docks / waterfront Sonny / Carly / Morgan i’m dumbfounded… there they go again… Carly and Sonny Carly is in Morgans… Read more »

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

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.
