Due to President Obama’s White House press conference, ABC executive Nathan Varni and the network have decided to do a full pre-empt in all markets airing today’s key episode of General Hospital.  The episode scheduled for today will air on Monday instead.

Viewers watching the show today, not impacted by the presdential press conference will see an encore episode of The Thanksgiving episode instead.  That encore was originally slated for 12/24.

Moving forward, in an effort to stay on schedule storywise in the New Year, the encore slated for 12/24 will now be an original episode, the Christmas Eve episode.

May sound a little confusing, but we will elaborate further if need be down the line!  Disappointed you will have to wait till Monday for Friday’s cliffhanger episode?  Not happy with your favorite soap operas being interuppted by long news conferences?  Sound-off in the comment section below!

This continuous interruption of General Hospital is ridiculous.! None of this news is so important that it cannot wait. Tired of coming home after work to see that I have taped more Trump nonsense!!!

I wish that they would either preempt an hour earlier during the chew or an hour later during Hot bench. Seems that when GH was on at 3 they still preempt. I swear that have in in for us faithful viewers. Lol
Thanks for the rescheduling for Monday. ABC won’t unlock anything for a week after airing.

Thank you for airing this episode on Monday. Yes, they always seem to choose 2:00p.m. eastern for news conference’s. Maybe they should interrupt Dr Oz. Lol. Thanks again. Very happy.

So sick of soaps getting bumped. Whether it’s something national like the President speaking, or locally they will interrupt for the slightest weather issues, hate it. Unless it is something people need to see immediately, the networks should wait to cover it in the news.

News conferences should be on news channels…i dont mind interuptions when its a tragedy, a tornado warning or a missing child alert ect. but when its just a talk i prefer they wait for the news…GH isnt great but it still has its good moments and i need my daily afternoon escape from the real world!!!

As frustrating as it is to miss my shows, real life politics are always more important than soap operas. I especially believe that now having lived in San Bernardino, and still living relatively close to Inland Regional Center and all the issues surrounding that dreadful day.

JOE!
How dare you come in here and make perfect sense?

Not quite. I can still remember (vividly) in the early 80s when Dan Rather interrupted Guiding Light for 25 minutes to report that there was nothing new to report (about the situation at the embassy in Iran, if I remember correctly).

News organizations at the networks have always been allowed to get away with egregious overreaching where soap interruptions are concerned. Nobody’s going to argue (I hope) that interrupting a soap isn’t justified in the case of something like the San Bernardino shootings; there are clearly certain things of immediate and pressing concern that justify breaking into programming for live coverage. There are also countless instances in which it’s not justified, but the networks and local affiliates do it anyway—and it usually comes down to big egos in the news department and real disrespect for soaps and soap viewers.

I’ve learned to ask myself this question: Would they have interrupted “American Idol” (or substitute whatever the number 1 nighttime program is at the time) for this particular news report? The answer is almost always no. So it doesn’t have to do with how newsworthy a particular event is—that may be a factor, but it’s clearly not the determining factor.

I think you’d be correct to say that SOME real-life events always trump regular programming. But I think it has to be acknowledged that the decision makers don’t always use the best judgment regarding which real-life events should be accorded that status.

Joe, politics are NOT important! Have you watched any of the debates? They are all rich azzholes who have no relation to the everyday taxpayer struggling to make it! Dont get me wrong, if there are world issues and safety issues, hell yes, interrupt the soaps but for him to get on there and blah blah blah is stupid! If anyone was curious what the president said they can certainly check their cell phones or watch the nightly news!

I just want to see Tristin in action 🙂
I really don’t care about Robin
although she did give me a laugh..
Robin was seconds away from her dear, no emotion shown, no panic, no tears, no nothing.
I saw her expression as she would look shopping for underwear at Kmart .. ahhaa!

Looking forward to Tristan! I hope he will be written well to show off his manly magic to take down the bad guys and take no prisoners..
You go Scorpio !!!! whoot whoot!!

I am thrilled general hospital will be played on Monday. It seems every time there is an interruption during the day….it is ALWAYS during general hospital. In order to watch online you need to wait a week for it to air..,at that time it’s too late. I thoroughly enjoy watching GH when I get home from work. Thank you for letting viewer know of ABC’s intentions

Michele

ABC does a terrible job every time they break in with a Breaking news report. GH Losing viewers because of the same breaking all the time. Plus the horrible never ending Jason story line. And bringing dinosaurs back from the dead. New writers continue to be boring.

Kat

Not upset about the press conference (I get that real life sometimes has to intrude!) just glad I will get to see the episode! I remember in the old days of soap watching, if news broke in, you were just SOL.

Timmm

What would you consider “Real life” that Obama discussed in his conference? Your opinion, I disagree, he wasted precious time in my opinion!

Kat
Kat

Oh please. My point was that I’m glad that there is a way for viewers to see the episode when news preempts. Feel free to try and get someone else to engage in a pointless political argument with you, I’m not interested.

Timmm

I NEVER mentioned politics KAT! I mentioned Obama because he is the president! If it were Bush I would say Bush! It doesnt matter and it probably isnt even the presidents fault! I blame the network for cutting in. This is a soap site, dont start trouble! We voice opinions here we dont sling political mud!

Harry
Harry

The president really ought to get his priorities straight. Has he not been briefed that Robin is about to be killed unless Patrick and the amazing Scorpios can rescue her on time?
Is he not aware that the night is about to get bumpy between Jason, Sam, Lizzy and Laura and hence, everyone needs to fasten their seat belts?
I was fine missing Nina trying to be a poor man’s Lucy Co, however.

CeeCee

Now, you stop that, Harry. Leave Nina alone, or I will find you and hog-tie you!

Shay

Here, here, Harry!!!! Someone truly should get BHO up to speed on the intricacies of GH! Finally—and I do mean, FINALLY!—-there was something truly worth anticipating on the show (The return of Robert….freaking….Scorpio!) and we were left bereft….and on a Friday, no less!!!! That’s simply unacceptable! (And just as a glammed-to-the-max Dr. O. was also seizing the spotlight in her own rapturous moment….by the way, am I the only one who thinks Progressive’s “Flo” could play Liesl’s doppelganger or baby sis? Couldn’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance between them during those recent commercial runs….but I digress!) I’m totally with you on not missing all that excessive, overbearing Nina propping….her too-sudden switch from shunned social “pariah-to-butterfly-of-the- ball” beggars belief, to say the least! However, I’m not sure I would characterize her overly-obvious efforts as attempting to emulate those of the hyperkinetic, self-appointed bossy boots-in charge, Floosy Coe…..I should hope even the nausea-inducing Nina would be aiming far higher than the dubious doings of that ditzy, dress-dropping diva!

Harry
Harry

Cee Cee, for your sake, I want to like Nina–truly I do. But alas, I cannot. I have come to the realization that I am allergic to the sight of Michelle Stafford.
Shay, I have managed to see most of Monday’s show courtesy of Canada and I can tell you that you’re going to love her scenes.
I will give you a snippet of one little scene to which you can look forward: Franco, Lizzy and Dr O arrive at the Nutcracker ball and the photographers take their pictures. Maxie says to Dillon, “Now there’s a good example of what’s wrong with that picture.” Dr O then snaps at Lizzy to stop hogging the spotlight and Lizzy flounces off. Priceless!

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Bravo, Harry! Bravo! Thank you for that!

Now, onto another matter. Because I couldn’t reply to you directly in the SNL thread, I will do so here. I liked your reply: “Isn’t that special!” Also from that same era, I used to love the skits Jon Lovitz did with Tom Hanks when Tom hosted the show. They played a couple of losers who would stand on a street corner and watch the ladies go by, to which they would comment, “Helllo!” “A real beauty!” “Not even a second look!” Etc…. To this day, when I am walking and see an attractive (we’ll say) “person” go by, I always say (to myself or whomever is with me) “Hello!” ” Not even a second look…” These things stay with me … for better or worse…

Happy Holidays!

Shay
Shay

@Harry…..How right you were about Dr. O.! She was indeed priceless, and way too sublime in her otherworldly, Cruella de Ville-styled evening get-up! One thing you can say about Liesl is she certainly isn’t on the same plane of existence as most of those other mere mortals who inhabit Port Charles! Her most healthy sense of self and completely oblivious nature to the rest of the world’s reaction to her is really quite something…not to mention, hilarious! Ms. Gati has promised a special surprise for GH viewers on her Twitter page, so I am hoping today’s episode was simply the appetizer of a full banquet of Obrecht delights….including at least one spine-tingling selection from this sinister songbird’s repertoire of holiday favorites. As for your notions of Nina and your personal reaction to her, I totally get it, Harry. She makes me cringe whenever the camera pans to her, too. The character is just too much of a fish out of water on the GH canvas, and the more machinations that are employed to make her palatable and mainstream, the more annoying she becomes. Let’s face it, just ain’t gonna happen…..

I agree, su. The President interruptions only irritates me marginally. It is what it is. There are worse things….like Seeing Valerie and Sonny (oops, you love him, sorry), or watching Ashley pant after her future son-in-law….hmmmm, let’s see, what else? Oh, watching Andre brainwash Chad…..plaeeeze!! Lol.
I just can’t stand when posters equate/translate disgruntled comments as hate. What is it with this word? It must be the 21st Cenuring word of the millennium. I wish fans would stop using the word.
What bothers me even more, SuzieQ, is the grammatically incorrect expression…”hating on me”. Those words drive me up every wall in my house. And, I have walked them all…LOL. Happy Sunday!!

So grateful to Nathan Varni and ABC for deciding in the interest of GH’s audience–finally!! It seems like an eternity since the network seemed to care enough to postpone an episode that was either partially or entirely preempted. For a long time, the attitude towards viewers was “Oh, well, they can watch on demand, hulu, etc.” Calls to my local affiliate simply fell on deaf ears, saying it was pretty much out of their control to perhaps even air the missed episode overnight. Other viewing alternatives do nothing to help the show’s fragile ratings and pose inconvenience to those who set aside time to tune in. Therefore, it is sincerely a welcome move to afford GH fans the opportunity to watch this particular episode on TV in the manner it should be presented. Thanks again!!

Lin

I believe when the President has a news conference it should be televised. By why not have it during the Chew or during that show after GH? Why always during the GH time? Or wait til after GH to cover, unless it is totally an emergency. My guess is the president and his people are too busy to watch daytime TV. Perhaps someone could tell them to perhaps have the conferences before or after that time. Also, why doesn’t ABC preempt that ridiculous drivel after GH and run GH at 3:00 ?

Dan
Dan

Glad to see the comments here are a lot more level headed than the people on the GH Facebook page that were freaking out like the world was gonna end, and calling the President every name in the book, because their television show was interrupted. Some people need to get a grip and get their priorities in order.

Glad that ABC is doing their best to fix the situation, making sure everyone sees Friday’s episode in its entirety on Monday, and then airing the Christmas Eve show on the 24th. Problem solved, nothing to worry about.

Timmm
Timmm

Well Dan, I wasnt “Freaking Out” when Obama stepped on GH but I wasnt happy. NOTHING he said mattered at 2pm on a Friday! Also, suggesting people get a grip and get their priorities in order is weak. Your priorities are different than mine. You worry about yours, I’ll worry about mine. I certainly can make a rational choice without someone telling me. People invest five hours a week watching GH. They were disappointed. The world didnt end and we will see Robert Scorpio and Co. on Monday.

CeeCee

Those hatriots are just heated because GH has had a lot of progressive storylines including the recent scenes between Tracy, Monica, and Paul concerning gun violence. If they don’t like it, they can spare themselves the one hour a day they switch over from FOX “News” for GH and just leave the TV on that mind numbing station 24/7.

Tristan
Tristan

Matthew, on another soap site there are quite a few getting their knickers in a twist about the gun buyback, saying they resent ABC using GH as an anti-gun platform. GH anti-gun??????? A show that glorifies mobsters and gun violence is anti-gun? This is all just to get more guns into Paul’s hands. Although I personally would not mind an anti-gun perspective after all GH’s glorification of violence, I do not pretend to speak for anyone but myself.

Timmm

EVERY freakin time that president blinks ABC has to carry him live! Like I’ve said in the past, 911 part II, god forbid, yes, cut in BUT for Obama to wrap up the year and say goodbye before he goes on Christmas break, REALLY! I wont even make it about HIM, this is on ABC! Why are you cutting in on GH when this guy had nothing to say and there are 24 freakin hour news channels that can and did carry this blah, blah, blah! Another swift kick in the azz of soap fans!

Dear President Obama,

I know Special Reports are important, but you have given two in the last couple of weeks that have interrupted General Hospital…and today was the The Nutcracker Gala fans had been waiting for. Maybe the Gala isn’t as important as some of the world affairs you are dealing with, but for many of us soap fans they are a time out from more serious news.

So suggestion…why not time your afternoon Special Reports to 3pm est. This way no frustrated General Hospital fans wondering about Jason/Liz/Sam, they are not interrupting one of ABC’s good afternoon shows (the others leave much to be desired), and there’s still plenty of time to have your highlights hit the evening news programs.

Thank you Mr. President, and may you and your family have a lovely Christmas.

No matter, who is President, why is GH always interrupted for a news conference? Why can’t it be captioned, on the corner of the TV, as accidents are. I thought this is one reason why cable news was invented. The scheduled news comes on right after GH, anyway. This Friday’s, news conference, was so Star Wars, at the White House, could be on schedule! Interrupt all these “talk shows”, for a change. There is no “story line” to be interrupted.

NEVER happy with a bazillion news channels when my soap is pre-empted. However, I’m glad it will be shown on Monday so I won’t miss it.

I’ve missed SOOOOO many episodes because GH was pre-empted locally but not nationally, so I’m really happy to hear I won’t be missing an ep plus get a new one on X-mas Eve. I can’t recall the episode/storyline, but years and years ago (ok…decades!) I missed out on the reveal of a murderer because of pre-emption. Of course, we have online viewing options now but my TV’s not set up for that and I’d rather not watch TV on my laptop.

Gert

I was an avid All My Children viewer. I recall many special news reports airing at 1:00 in the AMC timeslot. Now it’s during General Hospital. WTH…glad it will be on Monday. News has its time and place…any time but during soap hour.

Good call! Mr. Varni got something right.

Mister Media

With the proliferation of options available today the network should run a crawl advising interested viewers of the upcoming news event and referring them to an online source or related news network. After all, it is the network’s most regular viewers who are being given the short end of the stick. This would not be recommended for breaking news stories but for scheduled events like press conferences it would be ideal.

The numbers of people who watch soaps is a drop in the bucket of the population.

It was the President’s last round up speech of 2015, and even soap fans should listen, be informed as to our nation..

I would think that a speech and/or press conference would get more attention during prime time than in the middle of the afternoon. The majority of people are working during the day. I guess they don’t want to interrupt the primetime shows.

I wish that my local ABC network would air GH on their alternate local channel when they interrupt. They constantly interrupt for local stories such as store holdups, police chases, etc. I have called when they do this but you get a general voice mail box if you want to talk to them. I used to be able to watch GH on youtube but it is taken down if anybody loads it daily.

Going bonkers over missing one episode, to be run later, give some thought to never having another episode..

I can’t remember another three year period (13-15) when GH has been interuppted this much. The problem is that Obama always does his planned press conferences after the lunch hour instead of before the lunch hour. GH gets hit the hardest by this cause they air after lunch while the other three soaps all air during the lunch hour. Y&R, B&B, and DOOL may take one hit in the pacific time zone but GH takes two big hits in the east/central time zones. I am just glad this is Obama’s last year and hope Hillary does her planned press conferences earlier in the day so GH won’t have put up with this anymore. There is no reason why they can’t run a ticker at the bottom of the screen or recap what Obama is saying during the commercials.

Kelly

I am so done with the news and press conferences interrupting General Hospital as if fans of this show does not matter. With today’s Picture in Picture technology and smart programming you would think they would have the respect to utilize technology in a way that gives us a choice choose to continue to watch the episode of General Hospital or watch the news conference by selecting an option with our remote that would take us to a news channel to see the interrupting conference.
UGGG. It is so frustrating. 99.9999% of the time the interrupting subject is one that can wait until the news airs.

I am tired of GH being interrupted on Memphis , Tn channel 24 every time they sign a new coach , player, and stuff that could wait for the local evening news. If it were an emergency I could understand , but it is ridiculus. The worse thing is they don’t let you know at the front end if they will air it later and you can’t watch today’s episode inline until at leas tomorrow. As I said today it was interrupted to announce a new coach again!!! Please notify that these are not emergencies and should not interrupt network shows. Have you ever noticed that sports never get interrupted for this kind of ignorance!!

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

Courtesy/ABC

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
