I’ll give the devil his due here-this is nice crosspromotion for #GH50

I think every stinkin’ abc show should promote this… it’s quite a feat! 50! Years and still going!

I totally agree, they have commercials on for GH 50 but they should be on primetime!!

i’m dying with anticipation , i can’t wait, its going to be such a great day for all of us GH fans.

i for 1 cannot wait,,,

I for one can’t wait. On April 1, the official Anniversary, it is also my birthday. So.. I took the day off from work, and will be watching and toasting both events. The only sad part.. Mom won’t be here to share it with.

YES, YES, YES, cannot wait for all of it! I am l loving the way they are sliding characters from the past back & weaving them seamlessly into currents stories! Just love every minute every day. So thankful to still have my shows. I am excited to get up every day & watch. I watch every show currently on the air & can’t wait for OLTL to get back on, if I can find the time I’ll try to get back into AMC. It is HARD to keep up with all the shows now that I do not have my trusty tv/vcr player at my new job, BOO HOO! I really scramble on the weekend to catch up but I manage. LOVE THE SOAPS.

Cannot imagine life without them.

WHOOPS, don’t know how that happened, ha.

lol…its happened to me b4

I won’t watch ABC except for General Hospital and Nashville(my guilty pleasure)

The on air show was great today. I loved that Sabrina finally confessed her crush to Patrick and that Epiphany put Patrick in his place.

Kelly Monaco is the perfect person to be feature on 20/20 GH’s 50!!! Not only is she talented, beautiful, she is well known. She’s a great legend and I hope to see more of her on daytime TV.

When, will Kelly Monaco be on 20/20? And will any one else from GH be on too? I can’t wait see it when she is on.

With all this publicity ABC has been getting 4 GHs 50th, theyd be a fool to cancel the show knowing all the attention its given them. But you never know with these networks. Hopefully after the nurses ball ect. the ratings will still be there and the show will eventually be extended past 2014. The biggest suspense will see what happens next after the nurses ball and vets return is over. That will be the real test if FV and RC can keep our interest up. Theyve done an amazing job so far and im hoping that’ll continue as well as my show.

I’ve been thinking about that too… there doesn’t seem to be too much story on the show that doesn’t involve an exiting OLTL cast member or a GH veteran that will be walking out the door. I don’t mind, I love the show and trust RC as head writer… but agree that there’s an element of suspense for when the party’s over. However, at the end of the day, I think the last time I was this invested in GH was back in the mid90s back during Luke/Laura’s original return, the Ward family, etc.

So excited… can’t wait! I love the shows that have the whole cast too!

Does anyone remember Daffy Doodle on GH? Back in the 1980s Laura went missing for some time. Then on a cliffhanger episode we were about to see her return but that was delayed by one episode because some insane writer decided to tease us by doing a short story arc invovling this clown named Daffy Doodle featured in the entire 1 hour. We aggravated fans had to wait the next day to see Luke reunite with Laura. Now im thinking how cool that would be if it happened again. On April 1st is GHs long awaited 50th anniversary. What if we tuned in and instead find the entire episode devoted to the return of Daffy Doodle? And we had to wait the next episode to see the shows 50th? Would you think this a clever nod to the shows past, and a funny APRIL FOOLS DAYS joke, or would you be so irate you’d want to stone the producer and writer for clowning around? LOL!

Never happen.. but I wouldn’t put it past someone to preempt half the hour by a news story about a stolen bicycle… other than the Pope and Sandy, I don’t really see why ‘big news’ always seems to happen during this show rather than, say, Katie or the Chew or something. Now it would be funny if said ‘news interruption’ was a part of the story especially if it was a car chase covered by the Port Charles media … it’d be a clever nod to the whole OJ thing that gets blamed time and time again for being the wrecking ball to daytime.

I know that it would never happen…it was my way of kinda spoofing how some of us our wondering what vets are coming back, and how the writer brings the vets back then we have to wait and see them for another few episodes. Thanks 4 the reply.

APRIL FOOLS…there will be no GH 50th anniversary celebration on April 1. On that day ABC will interupt the entire episode that to announce the return of Brian Frons who will be in charge once again of daytime programing and is replacing GH with a new talk show hosted by JFP. LOL


!!!!!! that would not be a joke, that would be a disaster.

It would be a disaster and dont i know it. Im just having a little fun for a change after reading so much negative stuff.

I hate OLTL and will not watch. I no longer watch GH when The Mannings are on it.

Oh, Suzanne! I will not cry for thee…ill still still be wacthing OLTL with a laptop on my knee. (Not making fun of your decision …its your choice. But hate is a very strong word. I know we cant like everything but isnt there one thing you did like about the show? And dont say when it got cancelled! lol

YES..the incredible actress Susan Haskell, Robin Strasser and Trevor St. John…all of wom RC canned.

You picked some of my favorites. But i dont feel RC is total blame for them being canned as you put it but i did hear Susan wasnt too pleased by the way her character was written and i didnt like that too much myself but RC still did a great with the rest of the show in my book. Makes me wonder if Robin wouldve rejoined PP reboot if RC remained the headwriter if he was really responsible for her departure. Also if he was responsible for Trevor being axed, it seems Trevor didnt care otherwise he wouldnt have return to film that last scene with RC still there. But you never know with these people. Thanks 4 the reply. Wish you well. Jim.

I am very happy that ABC/D is finally giving GH some love.

So happy they’ve started mentioning the Nurses’ Ball again in the show. All the planning talk seemed to drop for a while. Now I can hardly wait to see what happens!

Looking forwaard to GH’s 50th!! Sorry got tired real quick when GH ruined John McBain & Todd Manning characters from OLTL. GH fans may like them but I don’t like them as well as when they were on OLTL so after the nurses ball I’ll say good bye.
Looking forward tho to Rick Springfield, Frisco & Felicia and where is Demi Moore?

Absolutely cannot wait. so excited about the 50th Anniversary and will definitely watch the 20/20 with Kelly M.

GH ought to keep the woman who appeared on yesterdays show as the publisher of Connie’s book. She kicked ass.

Am very excited. But I do have mixed emotions. Happy that I have been there since day one…..but sad that I am that old!!!!!!!

So thrilled the nurses ball is back. They should continue it from here on. So thrilled Lynn Herring us back on GH. The powers to be need to keep her on the show. She is hilarious. Happy 50th GH.

gh is really old for ageist hollywood standards. gh is 50 and yet it still lacks a lot of racial diversity. That’s reflective of tolerant hollywood’s thinking towards racial diversity. Majority of these soaps can’t grasp that and they are dwindling. Thank goodness for a racially diverse soap like scandal. Low rated abc soap revenge has cast yet another white leading char for a triangle w/ emily and daniel. abc’s lone daytime soap gh lacks African american and especially Asian american chars. You’d think abc would have more racial diversity on their soaps considering how scandal’s 18-49 demo is triumphing against all its competition. But of course not bec that would mean more racial minorities on their soaps. That’s typical of tolerant hollywood.

I’m Sam fan!!!!!

And I can’t wait to see KELLY MONACO ON 20/20

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Will Turn Out to Be Adam’s Father?

For weeks, General Hospital has been playing up the anxiousness, anxiety, pressures of a college student named Adam as played by Joshua Benard (the son of Maurice Benard) on the ABC daytime drama series.

Adam and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) have become friends, and along the way she seems to be attempting to put together the pieces of what is going on with this young man. In story, what we have learned as it seems that he is receiving unbelievable pressure from his mom and dad, to ensure he has the best grades in order to become a doctor.

On Wednesday’s episode, after receiving a 97 on his test in a do-over, he called his father.  We don’t hear the voice on the other line, only Adam’s.  Apparently, the father was not happy that Adam has to do a make up test, even though he received a high score.

So, where is this all leading? Is Adam suffering from bipolar disorder or mental illness? Is he talking to anyone on the phone? Or, is he the son of a current character on the canvas, or a new or incoming villain?

Much speculation has been made that Adam might turn out to be the bio-son of Mr, Brennan (Charles Mesure), presumed to be the nefarious ‘Pikeman’. However, Adam had said that his parents were both doctors. Others are assuming he could turn out to be another child of Sonny Corinthos, but Sonny doesn’t know it, and he was raised by some over-achieving well-to-do parents.

Looks like next week, Josslyn and Trina (Tabyana Ali) may be on the case to try to figure out what is really going on with the guy.

So the questions become … do you think this will turn out to be just a random story featuring Joshua Benard? Do you think Adam till be tied-in more to the Port Charles canvas?  Is Joss spending too much time with Adam and and not enough time with Dex (Evan Hofer)?

In addition, Joshua just turned 19-years-old this week on December 5th.  Shout out to another year around the sun.

Share your theories on Adam. what you think is going on with him, and who could be his father, via the comment section. Now below, check out the scenes between Adam and Joss from Wednesday’s GH.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What are Your First Impressions of Charles Mesure as ‘Mr. Brennan’?

There’s a new villain in town and things are about to get turned upside down for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) as General Hospital circles back around to the looming mysterious ‘Pikeman’ story and who was the target of the shooting at the Metro Court that put Curtis in a wheelchair.

Last Friday, and into yesterday’s Tuesday, December 5th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers were introduced to “Mr. Brennan” who has to turn out to be the dastardly “Pikeman.”

If his portrayer looks familiar, actor Charles Mesure has appeared in numerous television series and film roles including: Once Upon a Time, CastleThe MentalistDesperate HousewivesBones and more. Mesure is also British-born, but moved to Australia when he was younger, accounting for the fabulous accent “Mr Brennan” has on GH.


In story on GH, as Sonny was telling “Mr. Brennan’s” minion, Hume that he would no longer run Pikeman’s shipments through his territory, the guy showed up at Kelly’s Diner with an ominous message for Carly (Laura Wright), although she doesn’t know it.

On Tuesday, in his room at the Metro Court, Brennan is upset that Sonny won’t work with him and tells Hume he plans to stay in Port Charles to make sure the shipments to Canada are ready to go. We also learn that apparently the head of the WSB has taken a leave of absence. Brennan reveals that being the director has its benefits. He then says he got rid of Frisco and he can work remotely and now things are falling into place.

Hume asks Brennan who the intended target is in all of this, and he says both Sonny and Anna. “Brennan’s” goal is to force Sonny’s hand to continue the shipments and more. Meanwhile, Curtis on the case as to who is behind his shooting and more.

So, what has been your impressions thus far of GH’s newest baddie as played by Charles Mesure? Let us know in the comment section below.
