General Hospital is on the move this coming Monday September 10th to its new time slot of 2PM EST & 1PMPST/CST, which is one hour earlier than fans have been used to seeing the beloved citizens of Port Charles.  And now, these same citizens face life or death explosive drama at the hands of Jerry Jacks!

In the latest edition of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the series EP Frank Valentini previews the drama in which we learn not everyone in town will survive the week! The episodes will include new insight into Jerry’s master plan, a shooting, and an explosion, in addition to the waterborne poison released on the town!

Valentini said he was thrilled with the outcome of  the location shoot that is the backdrop for next week noting:  “I’m really proud of the team and I am really proud of the actors.  I just think everybody really knocked it out of the park and the audience is going to be really thrilled with the performances from the actors and the story.  It’s really exciting stuff.”

Now after the jump, watch the just released extended General Hospital promo for next week ushering the show into its new time slot.  Then let us know if you are excited to see the story unfold?

There are always ways to watch both nowadays, between DVR, Tivo, or whatever recording device you have, and in the case of GH, you can always catch episodes on ABC.com or YouTube, I’m not sure about DOOL since I don’t watch it. But you don’t have to pick one or the other, you can still watch both.

I cannot wait until next week. I’m so anticipating what’s going to happen to the citizens of PC. It seems that Jerry is always up to no good so it’s just a matter of who’s going to get to him first and finish him off. I love everybody but I’m more anxious to see what’s gonna happen to my beloved John McBain. He’s my all time favorite and I just hope he comes out of this mess unscathed. Lovin me some McBain!!

GH rocks, pissed off about Steve leaving, hope before jason is gone for good he has a reunion with Elizabeth and leaves her pregnant, the storyline that would generate would be awesome, i can picture Sam and Elizabeth coming together for the sake of the baby, and wanting the babies to bond, this time around the baby should be a girl,Gh owes Laison fans this much.

Oh God, please. Hasn’t Elizabeth been pregnant often enough, with enough different men NOT her husband? And you want her left with another child to pawn off on Gran?

No we don’t need that but let’s see Carly has three kids by three different fathers and oh so does Alexis everyone seems to forget that. It seems every time RH was pregnant in real life they thought they had to write it in.

Now this looks like a quality soap! Still concerned on how Jason will be exited. Will some of us get what we have been waiting for……end of Jason and Sam (baby isn’t his or her’s?) Get some quality s/l of Liz, Jason and Jake being back??!!

I cannot believe how good GH has been lately. The team of Ron and Frank have done it again! Brought me back to GH, in front of the tv, not just leaving it on and going about my business. Whats funny is I had a dream, PC blew up and the survivors all moved to LLandview! lol How awesome. But alas, it was just a dream…… Frank and Ron… you have proven yourselves with OLTL, and again with this wonderful storyline with GH. Thank you guys for your hard work, your talents…Keep it going! We are watching! and ……. you… Read more »

That is the most exciting promo I have ever seen for General Hospital. To bad ABC doesn’t pour some money into that promo and promote GH like they do some of their new loser program’s.

LOL.. I should have known they would make it all about Sonny. 🙂 I’ll be waiting to see how that ties in.

It will be nice to see a location shoot though.

I was excited until I saw that they pretty much made that promo ‘ALL’ about Sonny Corinthos, AGAIN. Seriously must 99.9% of the storylines revolve around or involve Sonny and or Jason? So sick of the mobsters at this point they should just rename the darn soap. 🙁

guess you’ll be happy once Jason leaves the show in roughly six weeks.

I’ve got to say that I can not for next week to start. I’ve got to say that I do agree with many I really hope McBain does not get hurt. I hope after this him and Sam have the talk and realize that they want to pursue the relationship. I also want my Liasion back before Steve leaves. So I again hope we see Mcbam finally turn into the wonderful couple that they are.

IMHO Sam and John are boring together! John is very quiet and needs the opposite. How about John and Carly?

I wish they would show that promo in Primetime! We have to see Scandel and Revenge promos. The nightime people should get to see GH promos. Maybe they are showing it?? I do not watch primetime ABC

I know. When and where do they show the promo? I don’t watch ABC daytime other than GH and nor do I watch primetime, but I have to see Revenge, 666, and everything else promoted … including that G– awful CHEW!

No not necessarily happy. Happy that Steve Burton has found another venture that makes him happy. My issue isn’t with the characters it’s more so with having all roads lead back to mob ties, meaning Sonny and or Jason. It’s just to the point I’m like enough all ready. There are other awesome characters on this show, let’s give them something that has absolutely nothing at all to do with Sonny Corinthos, Jason Morgan, the mob. Then maybe I’ll start watching more, I only watch now for Todd.

Carly! Carly. “Carly”

and, it’s ALL, because, of: Jax.

As soon as Carly saw Jax, walk in to the hospital room… She emodied… his wife. Radiant… Lovely… twosome. They inherently know they belong together! I love them.

all things considered… Ingo Rademacher… needs to return full-time… to replace Steve Burton… and be the perfect foible for Sonny.

I don’t understand what so many who complain about Sonny expect. It is quite apparent that Sonny is the face of GH now. Yes he gets a lot of screen time, but it is tapering. It takes time for the mob to go away. It’s kind of like pregnancy weight gain – you didn’t put it all on in one day and you can’t expect to lose it all in one day. They have to clean up the Joe Scully mess which I heard might take several months as he has big plans to takeover Sonny’s territory or something. They… Read more »

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
