How about 50 and up! We’re NOT dead! So strange that when we were 18 – 49, we counted. We have always been the viewers of the Soaps. Now because we are 50+ we don’t count? Come on – really????? Something needs to be corrected here. Talk about discrimination!!!

By the way, if they counted 50 and up, the ratings would probably be sky high!

I guess they don’t think 50 and over are purchasing consumers!

it’s not just the folks who do the ratings – its all over our so called united states – look at corporate america: most workers in their late 40’s on up are scared of loosing their job because of age – there is just no respect for us anywhere……….i know because i will be 60 next month!!

Too bad all of those OLTL viewers weren’t watching when it actually mattered.

Well this is a first for me, but I really needed to get this off my chest! I have been a daytime fan since the 70s & I grew up watching Another World, Days, & GH. It was a family thing, 3 generations of women in front of a b & w TV watching the “stories”. Over the years we have seen a lot of silly stuff on our soaps, but through thick & thin we have stuck by them. Well in the era of them dropping off like flies, I think that the TPTB should be a little more… Read more »

I have to say that I am extremely disappointed by the writing of Garin Wolf. I expected so much more after they released Bob Guza. But instead of positive changes, we still have an excess of Sonny,Carly, Jason and the mob. ENUF!!!!! If the powers that be at GH want this soap to succeed, revamp it quickly. FRONZIE is waiting to give them their pink slip and to open the door to Katie Couric.

OLTL is doing better in the ratings than GH because it has a better group of writers, actors and storyline. The powers at be value the history and legacy of OLTL. I can not say the same for GH. ABC had to get rid of its powerhouse soap and keep the one its canceling on its own come next june.

The one thing OLTL does that GH doesn’t, is honor their VETS.
For that alone, this show stands out.
Besides, GH is the worse it has been in the 35 years I have been watching it.

HAPPPPYYY HALLOWEENIE!!

I agree with most of everyone up there. Yes, it sucks how this country and its corporations and youth disrespect age. It’s simply a tragedy. Also, One Life to Live IS better than GH and has been for most of the last few years in every way. Soapy, over-the-top storytelling grounded in relatable cross-generational character interactions trumps godfather wannabe mob plots every day of the week. DAYS is improving since the reboot. I’m glad to see Marlena back as the matriarch where she belongs. Speaking of another show that respects its veterans, DAYS is up there with ONE LIFE TO… Read more »

Alicia Leigh Willis On Her Heavenly Return To GH: “What a Wonderful Experience Reminiscing With My Favorite Cast & Crew.”

Yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the surprise return of Alicia Leigh Willis shortly reprising her role of Courtney Matthews, as she escorts Mike (Max Gail) to heaven.

Willis was last seen on GH in 2015 as a spirit and created the role back in 2001.

The actress took to social media and shared:”A little clip of my surprise return on @generalhospitalabc What a wonderful experience reminiscing with my favorite cast & crew.”

Viewers know that as Mike succumbed to Alzheimer’s, he wanted the dignity of not dying in front of his son, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and to shield Sonny from witnessing his death.

But in the story, Mike did not pass on alone; as his daughter showed up to take him with her to the afterlife.

Check out Courtney’s post below.

What did you think of the moment having Courtney be there for Mike at the end of his life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
