Bad news today for fans of ABC Family’s The Lying Game, it has been cancelled by the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

However, one of its series stars, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, General Hospital) took to his Twitter account to give his fans the update relating: “Sorry TLG fans. We will not be returning for a 3rd season. Thank u for your unwavering support in the past couple months.”   However, this also spells good news for GH fans, who know that recently Tyler signed on to continue with the ABC soap opera.  Might now, his stay be much, much longer?

Former ATWT and ‘Lying Game’ star, Alexandra Chando also took to Twitter to bring the news to her fan contingent stating, “To our awesome #lyinggame fans, thank you for these two amazing seasons. Unfortunately, ABC Family has decided not to bring us back for a third season. We so wanted to do 10 more for you guys! Thanks for your support and keep up with the cast to see what’s next for us!”

So what do you think of the decision to cancel The Lying Game?  Did you enjoy the series? Are you glad that Tyler is back on GH with the possibility of him staying put even longer? Weigh-in!

Big Alexandra Chando fan but never really could get into The Lying Game though I still wanted the show to succeed. The way ABC Family kept taking the show off the air for long periods of time, I knew they were going to cancel it…especially with the success of The Fosters.

Hard to see any show go if you are into watching a story line or a program. That’s where I am hooked on a DVR as I can record and binge watch as time allows just to help keep viewer ratings up on fav programs.

This is why I’m beginning to hate cliffhangers. When the show gets canceled, you’re left hanging.

Still hoping for my Southland movie to wrap that up.

abc’s lying game has to be one of the worst soap operas. Ratings for abc’s new soap opera starring denise richards though is doing very well w/c mustn’t help lying game. It’s too bad though that abc’s new soap opera is getting a lot of racist backlash. Leading char is rejecting a white female who’s throwing herself at him bec he’d rather be w/ African american female. It’s obvious that there’s still a lot of racism w/ backlash to abc’s hit soap opera and racism from cbs summer reality tv show. Yet hollywood keeps recycling storylines and shies away from tackling racism w/ their scripted night dramas and day soap operas. hollywood only tackles homophobia though but doesn’t have any of that fervor against homophobia as it does for racism issues.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
