It is pretty hard to make Stephen A speechless. Bet he was close!

Steven A. Smith is right, MB is the man. People can hate all they want on Sonny, but MB is such a fine actor and a total class act. He’s been playing the same character for 21 years and he always makes it interesting, finds new subtleties and not so subtelties to the character.

There are actors on GH for only a year or so who people claim are great and all they do is chew the scenery the same exact way every single time. This man has been making it interesting for 20 years with enormous talent, range and great acting choices.

And as for the “actors” on GH who can’t act and are there for supposed eye candy and hunk value, here’s a news flash, there ain’t a more handsome man on the planet than MB. The guy is a star.

I so agree with you!! Maurice is so special!! Funny how I have never seen a picture of him in his underwear, and yet, he is still the sexiest man on GH!! 🙂

For veteran ESPN watchers like myself, it’s been no surprise that Stephen A. is a GH fan. But, it illustrates a larger problem that soaps continue to have: the invisible male viewer. There is nothing wrong with your “man card” if you enjoy ANY soap. If GH picks up additional male viewers through this segment, all the better

A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

ABC and General Hospital released a promo for the week of December 9th which features Franco (Roger Howarth) undergoing the mind-mapping reversal procedure that would restore his memory from that of Drew Cain’s back to Franco Baldwin.

But, as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is trying to stop Dr. Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) from performing the procedure on Franco by ordering a hit on him.

In the promo, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hersbt) waits by her husband’s side hoping he will return to her and remember the love they share.  As well,  Cameron (William Lipton) prays with her that Franco will come back to them so they can be a family again in time for the holiday season.

Watch the teaser below.

Then, let us know if you are hoping Franco returns and that he is no longer Drew Cain in the comment section, or are you hoping for a different procedural outcome when he wakes up?

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
