Five-time Daytime Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, GH, Avery, Nashville) is back in music city as one of the series regulars of Nashville when the primetime series premieres in its new home on cabler CMT this coming January 5th.

The Nashville gang including: Jackson, Sam Palladio (Gunnar), Claire Bowen (Scarlett), Charles Esten (Deacon), Maisy and Lennon Stella (Maddie and Daphne) were included in the first behind-the-scenes promo shared via CMT’s social media.

Nashville is currently in production shooting all new episodes,  and that is happy news for Nashies who can’t wait till the January premiere!  New co-showrunner and EP Marshalll Herskovitz and Nashville creator and EP Callie Khouri also amped up the excitement for the new season, which is being presented as the “best season yet”.

Will it live up to the hype now that the show is more streamlined with less cast members?

If they can remember Character and music.. first..and tell a story. People fall in love with the Characters. Love Country music,it’s Nashville not LA, Miami or Detroit. Not plot driven/message driven. Characters and relationships not plots, It will be a winner.

Oh, Rose, you sound refreshingly like a lone voice in the wilderness. You’re exactly right, of course. Do you remember the live-action Disney movies of yesteryear, like the ones with Hayley Mills? Those movies, too, are classics because they spent the time–and audiences wanted them to — in developing characters we could care about. No CGI effects, no car chases or explosions every five minutes. Just people we can care about and/or identify with. Let’s hope our NASHVILLE remembers it, too.

I’ve posted my feelings about this before but as thrilled that I am that Nashville is returning, I’m less than thrilled with the changes they’ve already made. I really…really…liked Luke and will miss him a lot. Layla was a very well-written character on so many levels; I’ll miss her presence too. Not sure what’s happenibpng with Connie Britton. I guess if they space out her episodes her absence won’t be as glaring but still she’s the heart and center of the show. Finally, not impressed with the new characters they’re adding from the little I know. Still, will definately tune… Read more »

I agree, Rebecca1. I also feel that Layla/Aubrey was one of the best singers, very distinctive. But I have the same issue with GENERAL HOSPITAL. Too many new or unnecessary characters at the expense of others…and us.

Sigh…very frustrating. We get attached to “people” and poof!

Connie Britton should be there–is she still an executive producer?

It’s on The Country Music Channel, CMT. Are you in the U.S.? You should get it…if not it’s also on Hulu ( I think the next day and probably with a subscription).

Whatever happened to the homeless man Scarlett was working with outside her office? I would like to see him brought back. He had an interesting story line.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
