Ron Carlivati did not write that anniversary episode, or the day before or after, all KUDOS go to Our very Own Elizabeth Korte…

p.s. Ron C. is the reason Genie was written off back to Paris in one episode, as he stated that he could NOT write anything for Laura without Luke… I am loving the new Writing Team, never a dull moment + Genie is back on long term contract for atleast 3 more years, possibly more once the 3 year deal, bringing her back home!!! I think WE have the BEST Cast, Crew, Frank Valentini, and NOW a great Writing team!!! By the way, when Ron C submitted reels for Best Writing, his ego didn’t allow for that… He didn’t even… Read more »

I for one am turning handsprings knowing that “Y & R” will NEVER receive a WGA nomination with Chuck Pratt as the Head Writer/Plagiarizer/Hack!!

GH ratings fall so far that RC is fired and GH gets a writing nomination. This is why awards that are decided on one or two episodes for a genre that does 250 a year are ridiculous and meaningless. Just like it was meaningless when GH won last year.

Why only 2 (out of the 4) soaps get nominated?
Why doesn’t WGA Awards nominate all 4 soaps?!

B&B! I love the Maya SL! It’s great to see a soap that is timely and relevant. We don’t live in 1950 — and soaps can’t be stuck their either and survive. All soaps have to evolve and reflect current times or be left behind and die. Younger viewers love SLs that relfect the times — and no current daytime soap can survive without younger viewers because older viewers do not count in the ratings/demos. I am a B&B fan, but congrats to both B&B and GH for these noms!

Just another testament which proves that those who vote on such matters do not watch the shows. GH has been horridly written for the last two years. I heard B&B has been pretty horrid too.
These awards are meaningless.

Wait, Y&R’s Chuck Pratt didn’t get a nomination?? All is right with the world.

If I knew which episode or episodes they are using I might be better able to decide which one I would be rooting for. My guess that BW episode with Luke finding out he killed his mother is the one GH is using, if so, I think they have it hands down, but then again, awards are given for so many reasons, it is hard predict—-

The GH team got nominated not only RC and there was no mistake in letting him go, sorry if your a fan of his work but he was horrible.

Fight Night will definitely have an impact on the lives of the citizens of Port Charles, on the upcoming Thursday, October 29th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Announced by ABC today, along with primetime’s Dancing with the Stars, The Conners, Supermarket Sweep, and America’s Funniest Home Videos, GH is having some ghoulish goings-on for the trick or treat holiday.

Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
