If the numbers from the views on the trailer for NBC’s new series, This Is Us are any indication, a smash hit is on the way for the network and for one of its leads, The Young and the Restless Justin Hartley (Adam Newman)!

According to Deadline, this week the trailer for This Is Us which also stars Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, plus Chrissy Metz, Sterling K. Brown, and Susan Kelechi Watson is nearing the 30 million mark for views on facebook as of Friday afternoon.  This is a record for a rookie show for the seven days of upfront week where new trailers for all networks are revealed and posted online.

The This Is Us trailer shatters the record for most Facebook video views posted by the CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow last year (4.1 million), and in addition, the upcoming series bested the trailer for Fox’s Prison Break event series (22 million view) as the most-watched trailer for the entire upfront week.

This Is Us follows an ensemble, some of them sharing the same birthday, whose life stories intertwine in curious ways, is clearly resonating with fans and on social media.  There is a high level of shares and favorable comments to what the audience has seen in this teaser for the upcoming series.

What do you think of the high interest in Justin’s new series, This Is Us? Have you loved the trailer as much as we have and the millions of others from around the globe? We previously posted the trailer here, or make sure to go to the facebook link and up the views, then  comment below!

Thanks. Maybe this show will make it past the first season. At least I hope so for Justin’s sake.

The trailer is really good and the show seems to be a future hit! Justin is too talented to expect him to remain on Y&R. I have much love for daytime craft BUT the money isnt there. JH can always return to Y&R later in life and be a Victor recast!

He would be stupid to leave his day job sometimes shows last five episodes and our cancelled the pilot pick up means zip nights time schedules so much is involved the only show I tape on NBC is Blacklist simply because James Spader is fantastic. By the way the bad haircut was indeed a sarcastic joke but yes I have been disappointed in the writing for Adam I miss the dark side I truly do

k, your right, networks have a quick, sharp knife with these shows! However, this show is testing well. I dont tune into much primetime but will see what this is about. The last time I was fooled was Blood and Oil. Love Don Johnson but the show was horrific! But anyway, Justin is young, he could probably handle both shows for a while? He is featured in the show but is not a lead. That way, like you pointed out, he will have daytime to fall back on if his new show doesnt last.

Ok teachable moment Chris Engender first Adam grown up was not happy with the way his character was vein portrayed had nothing to do with a gay scene which lasted ten seconds ruined his career ! Then comes Michael Muhney very opiated very anal about his job they fire him six months after the gossip about HHK he is gone then we hire a very nice guy nice body turn him into s watered down version of Adam! Now are we all happy now you said Chris was a homophobic and you said Michael was a grouper! Deal with i

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
