Who does Katie think she is? OPRAH?

I find it funny that OLTL and AMC were cancelled for Katie and she had to have GH’s 3pm spot, but now to get viewers she is having a show on GH

Maybe her ratings are slipping…

Agree 100% with MK & Mary.

I cant help feel this is more publicity for her insipid talk show than true support for GH…the damn best show on television or anywhere else!!! But ill show my support for GH by watching it for them and only for them!!!

Can’t believe it’s been 50 years….I have been watching for about 30 years…wow !! Love the show, best soap on Tv, besides Days of Our Lives. So happy Katie is talking about them today, they so deserve it 🙂 Wish them another 50 years 🙂 Congrads to you all on General Hospital….

My 2nd time watching Katie, that when Genie was on.

3rd time – had to see Bradley Cooper on there 🙂

I’ll DVR it to catch later so I can speed through her spots. GH group should of went on the Wendy Williams show. She’s a true fan of daytime soaps. Just hate how ABC/Disney is pushing this Katie down our throats, guess she needs the high ratings.

didn’t see this until “Katie” was almost over – darn it! Anyone know if full episodes of “Katie” are available online? thanks!

I thought this was a great episode! I watch Katie occasionally because she has on some really terrific guests and stories, but nothing will top this episode. From Rick Springfield singing Jessie’s Girl to Jack Wagner crying about his daughter to the trivia contest (I was very proud of myself for answering every question right even though my mother wasn’t even born when GH premiered, let alone myself) to great moments with Finola, Anthony, and Kin. I can’t wait to watch the 20/20 special on Saturday!

Didn’t watch much of it at all because it is on the same time GH is on. Katie’s on at 2:00pm (nbc) in fl………..I didn’t want to miss any of GH!

Jason Thompson is SO friggin adorable and I just love Tony Geary!!
Jack is such a doll and Kelly Monaco & Finola looked so beautiful.. Fun show, wish it was longer!!

Do you know, I actually set my dvr to record Katie today then I came to my senses and said OH HELL NO. Never watched it-never will. How ironic that her show is in GH’s timeslot which I will never get used to-it totally screws up my day when I am off & get to watch GH live. I DO NOT like GH being on an hour earlier, all for Katie!

A bit off the subject, but I read recently about Tony Geary being off GH for ten years. I absolutely don’t remember him being gone that long although I did switch to CBS soaps during most of that time period. I don’t remember how he came back to the show. I guess he & Laura were traveling then & had Lucky but I don’t remember the storyline of him coming back. Can anyone remember? THANKS

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Will Turn Out to Be Adam’s Father?

For weeks, General Hospital has been playing up the anxiousness, anxiety, pressures of a college student named Adam as played by Joshua Benard (the son of Maurice Benard) on the ABC daytime drama series.

Adam and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) have become friends, and along the way she seems to be attempting to put together the pieces of what is going on with this young man. In story, what we have learned as it seems that he is receiving unbelievable pressure from his mom and dad, to ensure he has the best grades in order to become a doctor.

On Wednesday’s episode, after receiving a 97 on his test in a do-over, he called his father.  We don’t hear the voice on the other line, only Adam’s.  Apparently, the father was not happy that Adam has to do a make up test, even though he received a high score.

So, where is this all leading? Is Adam suffering from bipolar disorder or mental illness? Is he talking to anyone on the phone? Or, is he the son of a current character on the canvas, or a new or incoming villain?

Much speculation has been made that Adam might turn out to be the bio-son of Mr, Brennan (Charles Mesure), presumed to be the nefarious ‘Pikeman’. However, Adam had said that his parents were both doctors. Others are assuming he could turn out to be another child of Sonny Corinthos, but Sonny doesn’t know it, and he was raised by some over-achieving well-to-do parents.

Looks like next week, Josslyn and Trina (Tabyana Ali) may be on the case to try to figure out what is really going on with the guy.

So the questions become … do you think this will turn out to be just a random story featuring Joshua Benard? Do you think Adam till be tied-in more to the Port Charles canvas?  Is Joss spending too much time with Adam and and not enough time with Dex (Evan Hofer)?

In addition, Joshua just turned 19-years-old this week on December 5th.  Shout out to another year around the sun.

Share your theories on Adam. what you think is going on with him, and who could be his father, via the comment section. Now below, check out the scenes between Adam and Joss from Wednesday’s GH.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What are Your First Impressions of Charles Mesure as ‘Mr. Brennan’?

There’s a new villain in town and things are about to get turned upside down for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) as General Hospital circles back around to the looming mysterious ‘Pikeman’ story and who was the target of the shooting at the Metro Court that put Curtis in a wheelchair.

Last Friday, and into yesterday’s Tuesday, December 5th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, viewers were introduced to “Mr. Brennan” who has to turn out to be the dastardly “Pikeman.”

If his portrayer looks familiar, actor Charles Mesure has appeared in numerous television series and film roles including: Once Upon a Time, CastleThe MentalistDesperate HousewivesBones and more. Mesure is also British-born, but moved to Australia when he was younger, accounting for the fabulous accent “Mr Brennan” has on GH.


In story on GH, as Sonny was telling “Mr. Brennan’s” minion, Hume that he would no longer run Pikeman’s shipments through his territory, the guy showed up at Kelly’s Diner with an ominous message for Carly (Laura Wright), although she doesn’t know it.

On Tuesday, in his room at the Metro Court, Brennan is upset that Sonny won’t work with him and tells Hume he plans to stay in Port Charles to make sure the shipments to Canada are ready to go. We also learn that apparently the head of the WSB has taken a leave of absence. Brennan reveals that being the director has its benefits. He then says he got rid of Frisco and he can work remotely and now things are falling into place.

Hume asks Brennan who the intended target is in all of this, and he says both Sonny and Anna. “Brennan’s” goal is to force Sonny’s hand to continue the shipments and more. Meanwhile, Curtis on the case as to who is behind his shooting and more.

So, what has been your impressions thus far of GH’s newest baddie as played by Charles Mesure? Let us know in the comment section below.
