This morning General Hospital Daytime Emmy winners will be participating in a television exclusive when they appear in segments on the ABC morning show, The View!

After much speculation as to why Daytime Emmy winning ABC talent was not allowed to participate in what has now become a annual post- Emmy tradition on the CBS afternoon series The Talk, where they welcome they welcome last night’s big winners, it all becomes clear now.

The View will welcome direct from the set of the ABC soap opera in Los Angeles newly crowned Daytime Emmy winners: Anthony Geary (Luke), Maura West (Ava), Chad Duell (Michael) and Donna Mills (Madeline)!

If you miss the live airing today at 11AMET/10AMPT, the episode will also be available to watch online daily at 4:00 p.m., ET/1:00 p.m., PT on ABC.com.

What do you think about The View having the GH Daytime Emmy winners on their show live from the set of the daytime drama series and thus not participating on The Talk?  Smart competitive move? Weigh-in below!

somebody at ABC is petty. Why doesn’t abc want everybody celebrating together

You would think that ABC would want as much publicity for the show as they could get, not letting the actors do the TALK does seem petty and really makes no sense. Geary said on The View that he told Valentini that he wanted to explore Luke’s dark side. But Fluke wasn’t Luke’s dark side when the story started and according to Geary, he was informed of the change when he got back from his surgery. Is Geary trying to do damage control after he let the cat out of the bag that the story was changed, ( makes no… Read more »

That is exactly what Geary is trying to do, AJQ. As much as I enjoyed the interview, as Geary did conduct himself with poise, he made a complete turnabout.
I always trust everything you write as being close to the truth as possible. You always point out what many overlook……and, I agree with you.

That is kind of weird, robert.

Didn’t realize Maura had such a sense of humor.
Everyone was great on THE VIEW.
I thought Chad was so cute…he got a little nervous…stumbled a bit when posed a question…how human of him….LOL.

Good question ? Its shows that people at abc are nick pickie and petty. The talk welcome nbc Days winners & why not abc. Very childish

It’s a cross-promotion thing. ABC owns, produces & airs both GH & THE VIEW. Actors from any ABC shows are usually interviewed only on ABC-related talk shows, like Jimmy Kimmel in the evening and THE VIEW in the morning. This is the way it’s been done for a long time because networks do not want to promote a show from a competing network or company. The exceptions are actors from series that air on the FOX or CW networks, which don’t have comparable talk shows in daytime or evening. Their actors & shows are frequently promoted by ABC, NBC &… Read more »

Talk about trying to create controversy out of nothing. ABC has the Emmy winning actors from GH appear on their own network’s daytime talk show, as opposed to the daytime talk show of another network. Nothing petty whatsoever about that. It’s just common sense. Having the GH people on The View was great publicity for the show.

I feel the major networks should be ashamed for not wanting to air the Daytime Emmys. Most of the winners were from one of the three (ABC, CBS, NBC). So many viewers missed the show because of that. The longevity is in daytime, what don’t they get. The View, The Talk, The Chew, next up The Few (fall of the networks).

Lita, if you could see the ratings when the Daytime Emmys were broadcast on prime time, you’d understand. I’ve said it before – TV is NOT a charity. Every single minute of broadcast time is calculated profit for a network. The DE’s aren’t broadcast because the ratings were not good, and advertisers refuse to spend premium dollars for a show that doesn’t hit their most preferred demographic (young adults, ages 18-39). If the advertisers won’t spend the money to support the show, there isn’t a show.

It doesn’t become clear to me. Why are the winners not allowed on the set?

GH is filmed in Los Angeles. I think all the soaps are. But, THE VIEW is filmed in NYC. It’s physically impossible to win the Emmy (the ceremony took place in L.A.) late Sunday night, and show up at THE VIEW’s studio the next morning. To interview all the GH winners, they just did a live telecast from the set of GH because most of the actors (& exec producer, Frank Valentini) were working.

Since, the view airs in New York City and General Hospital airs in Los Angeles, I dont think the winners would have time to fly to LA in time for the interview.

Shameless. Nobody hardly watches the View anymore, so to lure GH fan base to that show in order to see these interviews they ban those honorees from attending CBS celebrations. This isn’t about celebrating GH, this about promoting the View and ABC– not unexpected, but comes across as petty.

It’s to be expected…The View and The Talk are in competition. What really bothers me is that none of the “big three” networks had anything on their morning shows the day after about the winners. I made it a mission to jump from one to the other, and check their online page. They may mention them later, like The View, but still surprising since they all had winners, including their soaps. They do morning after for every other award show…and there are now a zillion of those now. Just another snub of shows that have been airing for years, their… Read more »

P.S. And at least The View is on in the morning, unlike The Talk which completes with, and is on when GH airs is on my market.

I love THE VIEW, Rose….I don’t care how much others hate it. So, okay, THE TALK puts on a good show…but, it is a carbon copy, nonetheless. I like the real thing.
What bothers me the most is how people demean the panel’s intelligence on THE VIEW….or demonize Whoopi. She is a wonderful, charitable and very altruistic human being.
Not one of the ladies on THE TALK can hold a candle to the intellect , humanitarianism and expertise shown by the ladies of THE VIEW.

“CeeCee”

“Thank You”

this season… brought me back to “The View”

YES : LOL

Rosie O has moved on again… but… I am just thoroughly enjoying Whoopie’ chutzpa this season… and …. Rosie Perez… hardly stammers at all… she’s progressed

and YES… I have to prompt…People of color … but these two ladies… make the show, for me… I don’t even mind Nicole… I think it works that “she” is given airtime to “prompt” or “aid” the republican agenda… LOL it still doesn’t come across as any thing i’d consider.
Nicole is actually enjoying herself… imagine that…. LOL

Why wouldn’t ABC want their stars to be exclusively on their talk show The View instead of the competition The Talk. Its a business thing nothing to do with being petty.

Ok , folks Days stars were on the talk too & there from NBC. So what is y’all answer to that Abc supporters. The view has not been the same since Barbara & Joy left.

As I said, no one knows what goes on behind the scenes. Perhaps NBC had no representation, and since DOOL is filmed in LA, as is Y&R and THE TALK, it was easiest to arrange.
I watch all three soaps, DOOL, Y&R and GH…. I love all three. I do not pick and choose…

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
