Jimmy Fallon Has Fun With GH Milking Character Reactions During Baby Connie Custody Hearing!

In a hilarious few minutes of Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue on last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host began a comedy bit by saying how upset he was over the online cancellation of All My Children the other week, and so he is now looking for a new soap opera to watch, but also how much he loves his General Hospital! Fallon then says that even on GH, they milk people’s reaction to big news and then launches into a clip from baby Connie’s custody hearing when Maxie is on the stand and Alexis brings up that she was a murderer!

And what ensued was the facial expressions and reactions, one after the other, of the characters in the courtroom without speaking, with the help of some clever editing!  Watch the reactions of Port Charles citizens: Lulu, Alexis, Maxie, Felicia, Spinelli and more! Three of our favorites were Franco and Carly, and Dante!

This was a very fun way for a late night show to pay homage to the soaps, and GH, and to take a look at one of the staples of soapdom  … those lingering prolonged looks and reaction shots!  Watch the Jimmy Fallon monologue that contains the GH courtroom custody drama after the jump at about 1:19 minutes into it! And then let us know, whose reaction gave you the best chuckle?

Funny… but still makes me wonder, if so many people are saying they are fans of the soaps, why is ABC not listening?

Missed opportunity… I would have made it even longer. We had the Maxie/Lulu court case one episode, and the AJ/Connie murder case the day after. They could have used courtroom staring from AJ, Monica, Michael, Kiki, Liz (who also testified against Maxie earlier, and came back for the AJ trial to testify against him), Diane appeared at both trials, Sonny appeared at both, Scott Baldwin…. Plenty of opportunity to stretch it out!

Can’t stand Jimmy Fallon and the bit wasn’t all that funny.
The saxophone was soooo lame and he laughs way too much at his own “jokes,” if you can call them that. I mean, Leno is lame too, but this guy will take the Tonight show off the air for good once he’s in charge.

Pure soap………I love it……….and the fact that he mentioned AMC too…….thanks Jimmy!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
