Friday marked the exit of Matt Cohen as Dr. Griffin Munro on ABC’s General Hospital.  In key scenes, after getting into an altercation with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), and realizing he has lost his way, the good doc resigns from GH, and decides to head out of town.

In addition on Friday, the CW announced that after 15 seasons it is ending the hit series, Supernatural, which Cohen has also appeared and been a key part of many Supernatural fan conventions.

Series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric Days), and Misha Collins made the announcement in a video posted on Instagram  “We just told the crew that even though we’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles said. “15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to here from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”  The final season will consist of 20 episodes.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired. And @cw_spn announced its final season. I am grateful to all the fantastic casts, crews, and fandoms I have been able meet along the way. It’s all those experiences that have helped me grow into the man I am today.”

DANG IT : as posts have already shared. another character left by the wayside

his scenes w/Ryan… say it all… their were levels of intensity and fraught

had Shelly AND Chris just tapped in to.. they would have seen what we’ve already known

yeah, it’s hard to not NOTICE his VERY good looks… but he manages to do that w/ease

I was so disappointed when Bree Williamson’ Claudette , never returned .

I’m going to miss him he was my fave guy on the show, I hope he returns, I wish they would of made him Anna ‘s son, but I’m grateful they didn’t kill him off. I wish they would of given him a last scene w/ Finola instead of Carly and sonny. now hopefully he will come back down the line.

I hate what they did to Griffin’s character. I’m not happy with the way they wrote him out. But the door is open….

I disliked what they did to Griffin’s character and don’t like the way they had him exit. But the door is open..,

Lin…I’m thinking Griffin could go to a monastery or some spiritual retreat for a while to pull himself together again. Then he could come back to Port Charles a healed man. I can’t help but think that it wasn’t just his last behavior towards Kevin that made him realized he lost himself, but also some guilt over leaving Ava for Kiki the way he did.

I have to “Laud” this man “farewell”

I once likened, him… to Robert Forster… check him out… in “Jackie Brown” w/ Pam Grier.. he played Max cherry… the “likeness” is startling. in one of my favorite “love” story

Matt Cohen has all the Potential to feature

Salute

In a few months he should come back as Lucky, with Gene Farber as Nikolas. Laura needs her sons at her side

If Jonathan Jackson doesn’t want to return, the logical choice would be Jacob Young, who won an Emmy as Lucky and is readily available. No need to go for a 4th Lucky.

I really like the character and the fine actor, Matt Cohen. I wish him great success and know he will do well. Maybe one fine day, he might return to GH. Thank goodness his character was left in a way where he could return.

Best of luck to the actor..That said, his acting was ok at best and the character of Griffin was just dull from day one till the end due to the poor writing regime…This show has needed new head writers for a couple of years now..I still watch because of some solid actors in the cast and the best directors in soaps!!

Can this old lady get her two cents in? Acting, acting? All he has to do is stand there. This guy is hilarious in real life. Saw him on stage, on one of Michael’s videos. I’ll miss him.

God!! Matt is soooo hot!!
Nonetheless, I did not like what TPTB did to his exit scene. Griffin is broken; angry; miserable….I get it. He is still grieving understandable. But, so pitiful??
I just wish his “adieu” had been less painful and more….”til we meet again”-like..
I guess there was nothing left for Griffin, other than watch him capitulate into another fisticuffs scenario.
Happy Trail, Matt…

If TPTB had been even slightly interested in writing from the Devane-Lavery family POV, Matt could’ve gotten an amazing story. So Jean and Shelley wrote him in as Duke’s son then after that, everything went to hell in a handbasket as there was no Justice for a truly dead Duke (as TPTB who are anti-SuperCouple liked to say “dead dead”), Julian did not pay any consequences for killing Duke and forcing him into Turkish prison for perhaps decades (as well as betraying Anna & Duke decades ago). Then to add insult to injury, Griffin was pulled out of Anna’s scenes almost 100% by his pairing with a Jerome, of all people, which made NO sense. Then they brought back Duke as a ghost (gee, thanks?!), brought back the excellent Tonja Walker to reprise Olivia Jerome and misused her, and finally when we are led to believe that Griffin and Anna will finally get scenes together again, Matt supposedly leaves. I don’t blame him if this is the truth. I also think it’s a possibility that he was given little to do while Anna bonded with her unpopular son with Faison and then was dropped to recurring or let go altogether. I mean, that’s how this works, right? There are certain “core” families and actors that are given priority treatment and the rest are left to their own devices. I am proud that of the Devane-Laverys, both KMc and MC have gone off to do other productive things because their characters would continue to languish in this environment as they have done already along with Anna and Duke (and Robert and Holly.) Bye bye Matt and pretty much every good thing that has ever been on this show.

Angelica McDaniel OUT as CBS Head of Daytime As Network Restructures

There has been a swift turn in the CBS Daytime hierarchy.  In news this evening, CBS Head of Daytime Angelica McDaniel has exited the network and her position, following a restructuring which dissolved her position.

According to Deadline:  McDaniel’s position is being eliminated as the network is folding the daytime team into the Current Programming department headed by Amy Reisenbach.”  Angelica had been with the company for nine years.

Reportedly, McDaniel’s last day at CBS was today.  The move by CBS now makes it similar to how ABC handles their soap opera, General Hospital as it is overseen by Vicki Dummer. who oversees all scripted series for the day-pa

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
