The new Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) hosted online series, General Hospital Now, will finally have its unveiling in January 2015!

The show which ABC is touting as Nancy asking the hard-hitting questions that fans want to know such as ““You are really good looking. Have you had work done?” looks to be a hybrid of late night talk show and sketch comedy! General Hospital Now will feature a panel of celebrity GH fans, soap studs, fun games and an overdose of side-splitting sketch comedy! It will feature many cast members from GH too!

Fans will be able to check it the show via WATCH ABC & ABC.com! And, they can use the hashtag #GHNow when discussing it and more!

Now after the jump, watch the first official teaser for General Hospital Now and then let us know what you think of it?

I test my ”work done ‘ skills..(kidding)
I worked with a plastic surgeon for 8 years and everytime I see work done I smile with a ”caught jah” lol
Nancy asked Duke if he had work done, yes he has and I know where lol an easy one..
OK– I’m ready to watch!! .. most all the GH cast have a great sense of humor and are humorous.. they seem to be a happy group that has a good time.. Hope Roger will be a guest!!
((I wonder if there will be guests from other soaps)

It’s about time they did something like this. They need to have more online shows. They could even bring back OLTL and AMC in some form and put them on ABC.com.

Looks quite fun…and Monsieur Ian Buchanan aka Duke is so good looking, refined, elegant…love him! I have mixed feelings about these types of shows..even when I watch one of your (Michael Fairman) interviews. I so want to get lost in these shows/characters, that I don’t want anything to break that fourth wall. On the other hand, if it’s a good show and the actors I like seem likeable in “real” life…I might just tune in. Either way, I like Nancy and I trust whatever she’s involved in will be good.

Sorry to b off topic…was that a FAIKEson with Dr. Liesl today…i doubt it was the real Faison…he doesnt love Dr.O…Faison is the Luke with Tracy while Jerry Jax was pretending to be Faison pretending to be the Fluke holding a gun on Julian…there are two Flukes in PC while the real Luke is still missing!!!

I don’t know jimh! when “Luke” first walked in with Alexis during Thanksgiving many of us thought Helena had switched the real Luke with Fluke…because she seemed too calm when Alexis and Julian found out where Luke was being held. I was SURE they had switched them! Then today…I thought maybe it really was Luke…his personality was so much more like the real Luke that I’m wondering if it’s an imposter again…why didn’t they have him acting more Luke-like from the beginning! So…if it is the real Luke…I’m wondering if Lord Larry is Fluke…after he escaped from the Q’s he… Read more »

Thanks for your explaination…sounds good…i still fear real Luke is being held and we had seen two Flukes in PC and a FAIKEson and maybe even a fake Larry…the Fluke at Julians is Jerry Jax also pretending to be Faison while the real Faison wore a mask pretending to be Larry while at the Q mansion that Fluke is Anthony Z…meanwhile, that Jake may not even be Jason….i think too much…its given me a headache…lol

Actually, maybe it’s really OLTL disguised as GH! And nobody is who they appear to be! 🙂

You could be right…sometimes it does feel like im watching OLTL and not GH…lol

Honestly? You know what I’d love? And I knowwwwww this would create mad chaos and divide amongst fans who feel the canvas is too big as it is. But, in this day and age of dwindling soaps…I think it would be great to bring MORE fan favorites from other bygone soaps…on. For me, it would be Bo and Nora, Vicki, Tea, even in sporadic appearances. Let Tea or Nora go up against Alexis or Diane…or even be called in to work in conjunction with…let Bo be called in to help Anna…just to keep these characters alive in a crossover that… Read more »

Oh. And Vicki…let’s see…Vicki could give the Q’s a run for their money and mansion…or get back to her working in the diner days and open up a new cozy cafe! yay! or not… hmmmmm….

Id like Erika Slezak’s Viki to somehow be related to the Qs…

she’s too different than them…unless they aged her and brought her in as Lila’s sister…the voice of reason and soul of compassion…until of course she became her evil twin, cousin, sister etc in the many faces of Vicki!

Wow This looks really really good, I will tune in for this. I love Nancy Lee Grahn, she is a terrific actress and looks sexy for 56 years old. Alexis Davis is the boss, love her so much.

The show looks like fun. So, I’ll tune in. But, I hope they also feature some behind-the-scenes GH staff, who people always ask about. GH fans are always asking about Ava’s, Jordan’s, and Duke’s wardrobe. So, it would be nice to have the costume designer on. Maybe even go shopping with one of the assistants!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered that made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their work as an ensemble.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly any words.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
