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?

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! 🙂

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!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
