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.

Roger Howarth???? Wow! When was the last time he gave an interview or spoke to the media? He’s so private and rarely gets booked anywhere.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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 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.

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: 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).

Courtesy/ABC

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
