Daytime legend and seven-time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer) will be the very special guest on this Monday’s episode of The View at 11AMEST on ABC.  Monday is the actual date of the 50th anniversary of the iconic ABC daytime drama, having debuted on April 1, 1963!

Geary is expected to discuss his career portraying the wonderfully unpredictable Luke Spencer since 1978, and what to expect all this week on General Hospital in celebration of the show’s Golden Anniversary.

Honoring 50 historic years on ABC, General Hospital is the longest running scripted drama currently in production and the third longest-running drama in American television history. To mark the show’s Golden Anniversary, General Hospital reprises the immensely popular Nurses’ Ball, a fictional charity event complete with musical performances from the illustrious citizens of Port Charles dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.

OK GH fans, what has been your favorite amount of Luke Spencer’s and performance of Anthony Geary over the decades he has been on the show? Weigh-in!

Yea, Jim. It seems like quite a few “Llanview” or character named posters are hoping for the cancellation of GH. It is as if they don’t want it on the air because theirs isn’t. Sad. I don’t begrudge them their show. Shame they don’t have respect for ours.

Agree whole heartedly. I hope GH fans don’t feel they are out of the woods. I would not be surprised if GH was gone by the end of the year.

Are you wishing for it to be cancelled so you can say say u was right? The network already renewed it til 2014 so it wont be off this year. And if it does get cancelled it wont be the end of the world for me. I just enjoy it while its still here and i enjoy everything else i like while im still here.

@llanview717. you should spend more time worry about your OLTL2. Just because it got resurrected doesn’t mean it won’t die again.

Not at all. I do not wish GH to be cancelled. I have great respect for the cast and crew and commend them for soldiering on over the last few years. I don’t have faith the network.

He is an awesome talent and we are lucky to have him on GH!!! I love GH and want it to have 50 more years!!! Congratulations Tony for getting the chance to review your years on the best soap!!!

I love GH . I have 3 favorites of this show. Luke, Laura, & Jason. I really hated to see Steve Burton go!! I keep hoping they will hire another actor to play Jason Morgan. Here he was suppose to be the tough mob hitman for Sonny, so how could the toughest hitman die from 1 shot (not even in the heart), and a roll into the harbour? Jason was too tough to die from that so bring another actor in to play that character. Back to Luke, his parts with Laura & them being on the run were my… Read more »

Technically speaking, “General Hospital” is only the SECOND longest running scripted drama, or the longest running AMERICAN scripted drama. “Coronation Street” holds the global record, having begun in 1960. GH has them, however in episodes!

I love all Tony’s scenes with his acting soulmate,
Genie Francis. They are magic together!

Anything where Luke’s love for Laura is apparent – I love when he’s passionate, funny, jealous, protective, even angry. He has always been able to show a whole range of emotion when he (Tony) works with Genie. Their magic is unsurpassed.

GH Double Wedding Promo: Who Will Tie the Knot? Maxie and Peter? Anna and Finn? Neither Couple?

This week’s it’s the highly-anticipated double wedding of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) on General Hospital, but already things look pretty dismal that any nuptials will take place, or will they?

We already know that Anna and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) have figured out Peter is a very bad guy, Maxie is having second doubts of marrying the guy, someone enters the picture unexpected from the latest promo and the end of last Friday’s cliffhanger, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) got some motherly news for Peter,  and Finn is on a mission to find out if he is the bio-son of Chase (Josh Swickard), and not his father Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and more!

On Monday, ABC released its promo for the nuptials, which does have guests seated at the wedding, but who will show up to say their “I do’s”?

 

In the latest issue of SOD on newsstands now, GH co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared what fans should expect, revealing: “The double wedding is the crescendo and climax of years of stories, secrets and lies – and by the time it’s over, the lives of everybody involved will have been changed forever.”

Watch the teaser below.

Now, let us know: Do you think either couple, Maxie and Peter, or Anna and Finn ,will actually get hitched? How do you think the drama will go down on Port Charles? Weigh-in via the comment section.
