John Stamos Visits His Old Stomping Grounds At General Hospital

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Social media was abuzz yesterday when photos surfaced on Twitter of none other than John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish), who got his early career start on General Hospital, apparently making a visit to the set of the iconic soap opera.

Stamos posted photos of himself, along with Steve Burton, Maurice Benard, Josh Swickard and Kin Shriner.  He stated: “The studs of ! Visit to my old stomping grounds – thanks for the hospitality boys.

This fueled rumors that perhaps, just perhaps, Stamos was making a guest star visit to the ABC daytime drama series, yet there is also the fact that John has been developing a series about fame and excess of daytime soaps in the 1980s based off his time as a young teen star on GH.

So, what do you think John visited GH for? What did you think of the pics by Jim Warren that appeared on social media?  Is Blackie coming back, or is John shooting or doing research for his series in development? Comment below.

I could take it either way….is there any chance he could come aboard for a brief stint and turn out to be Nelle’s biological father???

that’s interesting. I like that. but haven’t we already met her father ? didn’t he sell Nelle’s kidney for Joss? I wasn’t watching the show at the time so I only know through what I’ve pieced together….

Well, it would certainly be a ratings grabber but I think it’d be weird for a character from 30 years ago just to show up, say hey, and leave.. …. but if he was connected somehow, however, that would make sense. They’re mentioning Rick Webber a lot lately and, of course, the GH wiki reminded me that Blackie was supposed to be at the Nurses Ball a few years ago… but apparently had problems with Ron C (it seems everyone did, which is unfortunate) at the time so that didn’t happen.. guess we’ll see ….

do you realise that would make him Carly’s adopted father?

No to Blackie Parrish being Nelle’s father. Remember the man is also Carly’s stepfather (?). I’ve often thought it would be cool to see Blackie back in PC after 30 years in jail. Could he have another connection to current story please. Short term works for me. I’d like to see the character turn his life around.

Probably just doing research. He and Shriner have been friends since they were on the show in the 80’s.

Sorry, but I wouldn’t be interested in seeing him back on GH as Blackie. He’s been gone too long and has no connection to current cast. Plus, they need to write for the talent they already have and we want to see more. He was probably just there for research.

I wasn’t old enough to watch the show when John Stamos was on in the early 80’s. I’ve watched a few YouTube clips, and wow, what a difference in storytelling-same for mid-80’s (when I began watching) and 90’s. Today, we are inundated with out of work “actors” who no one else would hire and terrible storylines.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Renewal Update: Sony and NBC In Talks, Insiders Optimistic While Show Pauses Production

Every year around this time, Days of our Lives renewal has been its own cliffhanger.  With the show taping episodes so far in advance and wrapping their current season, the series paused production and went dark on April 16th, according to TV Line.

Now comes the waiting game and according to a report from Deadline on Wednesday, NBC and Sony are continuing to be in talks to bring the series back for its 57th season. While no one from any camp is officially commenting on the negotiations, their sources are reporting that things do look optimistic, as of now.

The report indicates that in anticipation of a renewal, the producers have been making if-come deals with key cast members in the past few weeks and the writing team is said to be hard at work on potential scripts for the new season.

In the past, DAYS’ renewal had taken several months to pan out, because of how the show’s distributor Sony Pictures Television has to adjust its business model to continue the show without going in the red.

Even though over the years DAYS had declined in the linear ratings, there appears to be a commitment by the studio and NBC to find ways to keep it on the air.

So, are you hopeful that DAYS will survive yet another negotiation for renewal? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys Land Two-Year Deal At CBS; NATAS Reveals This Year’s Broadcast Set For June 25th

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network. CBS also aired last year’s Daytime Emmys amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
