The ratings are out for the week of May 9-13th and it looks like the return of Roger Howarth and great story including the antics of a crazed Marty Saybrooke continued to keep One Life to Live strong and firmly in the number three spot this week.  The soap also garnered an additional 85,000 viewers in total viewers.

On the converse, General Hospital which just fired it’s head writer, Bob Guza with Garin Wolf effective immediately, slid to the number five slot.  Days of our Lives landed at number four and gained the most viewers last week with 250,000.

The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful held steadfast the number one and two positions for CBS Daytime and in total soap viewers.

I hope Garin Wolfe has a chance to bring General Hospital back to it’s former glory. I’m really tired of mob related stories 24/7. Back in the ’80’s and 90’s General Hospital offered a nice balance between mob and hospital story lines with much more cast interaction between most if not all of the cast members. During Guza’s reign, the centerpiece became anything mob related. As a consequence, most of the well known characters were left High and dry or dumbed down to prop the mob stories. I really hope Mr. Wolfe is given the opportunity make GH his own… Read more »

WE need to get OLTL to number 2. It is on the upswing. BandB is on downswing. As great as the numbers look, we have to keep in mind that last year, OLTL was experiencing their lowest ratings. The massive gain from week to week and last year is an improvement, but it can be better. WE have to get the word out that OLTL is on fire, Roger is back, Viki has story, Marty is off her rocker, Jessica thinks she is a boy and hitting on girls, Hottie Cutter is married to a woman who thinks she is… Read more »

I LOVE General Hospital first and foremost. Although I watch OLTL on occasion, and even more so lately with its improved writing, it will never have the same place in my heart as GH. I want BOTH soaps to be saved!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
