TODAY: "The Clash of the Condiments"! General Hospital's AJ and Tracy Visit THE CHEW!

The relish wars go to new heights on today’s episode of General Hospital when Tracy (Jane Elliot) and AJ Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) visit ABC’s The Chew in episodes where the fictional characters of Port Charles appear on the cooking show!

The scenes were directed by General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini in a crossover story between the two ABC branded series.

On Monday: AJ and Tracy face off on the segment “Clash of The Condiments” with The Chew co-hosts: Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Daphne Oz, and Michael Symon all tasting the opposing relish. The big question remains: which relish will be victorious?

So GH fans, what do you think of the concept of having Pickle-Lila being a centerpiece between the two ABC daytime shows?  Do you think it’s a clever idea?  Are you in for the ride? Or, are you on the opposite side of the fence, where you don’t think it’s cool that GH is integrating a story with The Chew, given that The Chew replaced an ABC soap in All My Children?  Share your thoughts!

It will be amusing to see AJ & Tracy battle it out, but I hate that ABC is promoting “The Chew!” on our soap.

This is a chance for General Hospital to get a wider audience so that is a good thing in my book.

But you have to admit that Ron is the master of the “inside joke” He made the “Chew”- Spew- literally. We know that is teh nickname disgruntled soaps fans gave that show. I thought it was brilliant satire. Also loved when named the stage manager at the Chew- Todd, so when he asked Roger’s Howarth new character what his name was, you heard another stage hand calling the name Todd- (looking for the stage manager, but timed perfectly). It too was brilliant. And whole relish war is a satire for their feud with PP. It has gone on bit too… Read more »

Hopefully the Pickle-Lila storyline is kaput now. It’s gone on waaay too long and Jane Elliot deserves so much more than this storyline. I’d like to see Luke & Tracy back at it and Laura getting jealous so we can get back to L&L again somehow!!
Loved when the stage manager called out “Todd!” that was brilliant and seeing RH’s face not flinch. Funny. So love that RH is back!! Missed him.

I hate The Spew and this was just the push I needed to take GH off my Season Pass list. I only started watching GH b/c ABC cancelled AMC and OLTL, and I was on the fence about whether or not to continue. Thanks ABC for making my decision for me. Screw the Chew.

This story has gone in way to long, it’s so STUPID!!! Now The Chew really???? That’s a slap in the face to soap fans!!!! I will continue to Fast Forward this crap!!! It better end soon. ENOUGH RELISH ALL READY!!! It was cute for the 50th but now ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

And it makes no sense- if your company success depends on relish — it really could not have been that great of a company to begin with. The only thing amusing was the relish wars was a way to mock the legal battles with PP– they got a few digs using relish to represent those three actors and whose property was who–but other than that , it lost its charm long time ago. I don’t FF because I am watching the broadcast as it airs- but I do channel surf during those scenes

As soon as they mentioned the Chew on GH, I fast forwarded through any scene with Traci and Nicholas that came on. I have no interest in being slapped in the face, AGAIN, by ABC by reminding us that they cancelled our soaps for this crap! As much as I like GH, if they continue to use it as advertising the Chew, I will stop watching it. Let them cancel it as far as I am concerned, because if they do then PP gets the licensing anyway. As good as AMC and OLTL are on the internet, I can only… Read more »

First , I truly cannot believe that anyone thinks PP’s version of OLTL is better than ABC’s… I just can’t wrap my head around that! Don’t get me wrong…I’m rooting for Prospect Park to succeed…I hope their shows improve (not sure if they coudl get worse)…and I TOTALLY resent ABC for pulling the plug on the soaps. BUT! In all honesty OLTL was a much better show when it was with them. Thus, I have no desire to see GH go that route at this point; would much rather ratings be up for GH so that ABC doesn’t dump them.… Read more »

one thing for sure… they need to rectify immediately…

give Dorian a serious love interest…

they should bring back… Brian Kerwin… as Charlie Banks…

formidable allies, dalliances, … will be elevated without dialogue…

between Dorian and Vicki… this would be easier to keep alive thise magical twosome… Brian Kerwin is a Hot Man.

Screw the Chew, I can’t believe I had to SUFFER through General Hospital with those idiots, HELLO, they killed ALL MY CHILDREN for this mess of a show and if I wasn’t pissed off before, I am really pissed off now, ABC sure loves to rub the noses of the soap fans in the dirt, I will never give in to ABC for taking AMC and OLTL off and changing my daytime viewing, I won’t be giving up watching GH we have to support what soaps are left, But I like ABC less then I did before todays show.

LOL That’s what I was thinking. They sure did SPEW!!!!!!!! At least in that respect they were true to AMC/OLTL and ABC soap fans.

Yes Christy, You are right about that, BARF, BARF, BARF, I hate the CHEW and have no plans on EVER watching it or ABC again, Just General Hospital and that is it, ABC is a dead channel on my TV.

Sorry, Michael, I have to agree with most of these comments. I can’t fully express how much I hated having the cast from The Spew on GH, and how dumb the whole relish storyline is! If this fiasco of an idea does bring GH more viewers, they’re going to need them, after many of the former GH fans stop watching! I feel sorry for Frank V, Ron C, and especially Jane and Sean for having to participate in this whole mess. The illness that the Spew crew “suffered” at the end of today’s episode of GH exactly mimicked how we… Read more »

There’s got to be a better use of the Quartermaine family. This stunt is a major snooze fest. Not watching.

I am sure they had to do the episode plugging The Chew for all the publicity The Chew gave GH’s 50th. I don’t watch or care for The Chew… but I appreciate all the publicity they gave GH’s 50th anniversary and so I think it is only fair to reciprocate. I love anything when Jane Elliot is in it!!!

I would be more happy with a crossover with a show that didn’t have anything to do with the demise of OLTL and AMC… a night time show would be preferable… like Castle!

Did anyone count how many times they said “The Chew” on GH the last few episodes? Must have been at least a hundred!

Refuse to watch GH until Mario “Get over it” Batali and his Chew crew are gone off the show. What a slap in the face to us soap fans to promote this show and put the actors through this insult. I still boycott ABC, except for GH, for taking away our beautiful shows.

For it or against it, at least ABC is doing cross promotions. They are a business, and they have every right to run their business how they see fit. They cant take back what they did under Frons…they can only go forward. I think they are showing that they are behind GH. This show garnered more mainstream press buzz during the 50th anniversary than soaps possibly ever have. I think the storyline is a little wonky…ELQ is supposedly a global business with very diversified holdings…the fact that they are pinning ALL their future hopes on relish is fairly ridiculous and… Read more »

I find the relish wars to be sad. I can’t even call it stupid because the s/l is just so pathetic. All the actors involved in that mess deserve way better, actually the show deserves way better. I don’t know when GH started going down the tube for me, but I couldn’t even make it through the first 5 minutes of today’s episode before I changed the channel.

Well, whether or not the Chew gives GH advertising. that was the most stupidest hour of TV I’ve watched in a long frigging time. I’ve never seen a more awkward group of morons on a talk show and it was painful watching them trying to be funny. I’m sorry, but who the hell eats relish on crackers?? This whole storyline needs to go away and hopefully once they all puked up their pickles, that will be the end of this.

Using GH for ratings, cross-sell, or whatever for The Chew, or the other way around, should always remind us to never trust ABC, ever!

I love the Chew and have been a GH fan for 50 years! Merge them with a little relish. Done with great taste! Thanks.

I didn’t watch the episode because I am still boycotting The Chew at every opportunity. I heard they all got sick. I would have laughed heartily had I seen the episode. I hope they don’t put The Chew on any of the soaps anymore–I even turn the channel if there is a The Chew commercial on. Yuk!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
