NEXT WEEK: The Men Of General Hospital and Kelly Monaco Visit The Chew!

Courtesy/ABC

ABC is once again crossing over the talented performers of General Hospital with the cooking foodie/talker The Chew.  But not on an actual fictional episode of the soap opera,  such as with the Relish Wars, but this time, actors themselves will appear on The Chew!

So, that means on the upcoming Thursday October 24th episode, look for some of your favorite men from Port Charles to participate in some cooking and some chatter along with the one GH gal to keep them company, Kelly Monaco (Sam)!

Scheduled to appear from GH are: Roger Howarth (Franco) Jason Thompson (Patrick), Sean Blakemore (Shawn), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas), and the aforementioned Monaco!

The Chew airs weekdays at 1PMEST on ABC.  And in addition to the GH stars next week, Nashville’s Hayden Panettiere will stop by The Chew on Monday, October 21st and help ‘Chew’ host Clinton Kelly make a Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples and then the duo will play a prank on The Chew co-hosts.

So, are you surprised that the often press-shy Howarth is part of The Chew segment?  What do you think about the gang from Port Charles cooking up a storm on the series?  Will you be watching?  Let us know!

Won’t watch anything that has to do with the Spew. Not when ABC keeps developing talk shows instead of scripted programs. I won’t add my viewership/DVR ratings to their program. No matter who is on the program.

I don’t like The Chew. Never ever watch cooking shows. And never will! The show makes me throw-up. Not to many soap fans like & watch The Chew(silly name)..That’s my opinion..

I definitely won’t be watching. And for those of you who do, which is your privelege, you are just giving ABC daytime the ratings they can use to justify why they cancelled our other soaps. You know the saying…beware Greeks bearing gifts (Trogan Horse). And I’m sure there was a little arm twisting to get at least the boys there…they want to keep GH on and have jobs.

There is nothing ABC can do to make The Chew worth watching. The Chew is a cleverly disguised commercial. The Chew is trash tv.

Rebecca

Gee, if The Chew is “trash tv” in your book, what would you call the likes of Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Steve Wilkos, etc?

Honestly, we need more daytime shows that are fun and feel-good positive like The Chew and much less of the raunchy, despicable, disgraceful crap that I just mentioned.

Kate

The Chew is a commercial. It is boring and contributes the obesity epidemic we have in the US. It is a total waste of time…not a feel good show . Please feel free to put in the same category as Jerry Springer.

People were fat long before the chew…i dont care for the show…but people need to take responsibility for their own actions…they need to take a good look in the mirror and see who is really responsible for making them fat…there was fat people long before tv…people today are LAZY…they depend on fast and convient quick fix meals that were never meant to be consumed often… and adults sit in front of .. we used to find things to keep us active and meals we prepared were often made from scratch and often healthier…we didnt run to some fast food joint as people do today..back when i was a kid we might have eaten out once or twice every two months as a treat but it doesnt seem that way anymore…many dont want to take the time to cook healthy but ive been seeing some change that more people are starting to…like they say ‘Guns dont kill people, people kill people’ and the same rules apply to obesity ‘Tv cooking shows and fast food joints dont make people fat, people make themselves fat’…People are responsible for their own actions especially people who get fat…if i see im at 200 pounds i have the intelligence to know im to blame for that…i dont wait til im 300 pounds and then blame a tv show for it…i know im to blame…im the one who should watch what i eat…now i agree The Chew is boring but who did you blame for the obesity epidemic b4 The Chew ever aired?

Overheating is an addiction as is smoking , gambling, etc. Do you put a smoker who is trying to quit in a room full of smokers? The Chew celebrates food which is ok if it is healthy food but The Chew has very unhealthy food most of the time.

I agree with Kate. The Chew is trash. And it is VERY boring! Carla (oh no)! This show should have been put on the food network. That’s it’s proper place & where it belongs. Who in the heck wants to know how to make fish tacos, please!

The Chew has evolved into a nice show and the hosts are endearing. Soap fans need to get over the cancellations. And contrary to what most soap fans think the Chew gets great ratings with better demographics.

Jessica

I completely agree. When it first came on, I was unsure of how it was gonna be. But, I gave it a chance and I ended up loving it. The hosts are fantastic. Clinton creeps me out with the crafting, lol. I don’t know why, but something about a guy doing crafts just isn’t right. But, it’s a great show. Need to get back into it.

SUSAN M.

Sorry, I never ever watch food programs. Have no interest to watch one . Never watched a cooking show . Why should I start no. Boring… Glad you like it.

It’s cool, Susan. I used to watching cooking shows all the time when I was little. I don’t watch them as much anymore though.

I’m not really thrilled about the crossover because I won’t watch that program. However, I do hope that GH gets the “heck” promoted out of it during THE CHEW, the way they incessantly promoted that show during GH’s Relish Wars storyline. GH has much bigger stars and they deserve to be promoted big-time; not treated like the proverbial red-headed step-child of the network.

Roger Howarth on The Chew ! ? I will believe it when I see it. The only thing that makes sense is that RH may be one of the celebrity buddies of Battalli and MB does a lot of charity work around NYC to help feed people. If not RH must have lost some kind of bet.

I wasn’t planning on watching… until you said “roger howarth”!! I’ll be recording it for sure! He is a hoot!

I won’t watch. Clinton Kelly called soap fans, including me, moron and turds on his Facebook page. GH is the only show on ABC I watch. Sorry Michael I know you don’t like people posting that. P.S. the only reason the Spew’s ratings are up is because it runs into GH’s 2pm time slot.

janet

Linda you are so right. When I watch the dvr I always get a few actual minutes of the chew just before GH .No I will not watch. Clinto should look in the mirror .The morons are the ones who allow him to make complete fools of them on his CANCELLEd show what not to wear !

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
