So get your questions ready for Kristen and tweet away!

    Ugh. All the focus on Starr was one of the reasons I tuned out to OLTL.

      She was one of the many reasons I tuned out too. I’m praying that her singing will only be an occasional blip on the show. Now if MamaBlair had sung, I would have enjoyed it!

        She is one of the reasons I have tuned out of GH lately. Too much focus on newbies and not enough on our GH actors.

        No singing from her OR Mama Blair. Blair is better, granted, but NONE good enough!

      Why????????? I see nothing wrong with Starr…She grew up on OLTL……And I like her character..I think she is very sweet…..If you tuned out on OLTL because of Starr you missed a lot of good stories on OLTL…You missed all the other actors & actresses..By tuning out for just one character…David you missed out on OLTL by doing that….Each character gets a turn to be in the spotlight…They focus on each one of them….As I said each one gets their turn to be in the spotlight…

    She was the reason I started watching GH again

    I DONOT LIKE STARR ON GH. SHE WAS ONE OF THE REASONS I LOST INTEREST IN GH, when the CHANGE and cross overs started. I kept the show on EVEN if I (was not )at home to support the show and the ratings, BUT I am not at home to see it, and have to view it on line. I just didn’t have the burning desire to tune in and see Starr, who was being giving a HELLAVA lot of air time. Personally, I didn’tcare for her on OLTL, but that was her show that she started on and was a cast member of. If a person tunes out on GH because of Starr, (here’s the difference) they feel Starr has invaded their space (it’s their fav show/ she’s not a memeber /doesn’t belong). NOW, tuning out on OLTL because of Starr, (was) not really necessary because that was her (environment) WITH….. an expectation as a viewer to see her when we tune(d) in. There was NO expectation to see her on gH. I like the young lady (Kristen), and the character is just ok. As I said long ago, U can find the character of Starr on ANY soaps, (it’s not such a unique character that it needed to be on GH). As far as her singing is concerned, the girl is not the best of singer’s. The only song I like that she sang and sang her heart out was the finale song of OLTL, otherwise the rest were blismal, and I HOPE and PRAY she doesn’t start that singing cramp on gH. Her Mama Blair, I like Blair, but not crazy about her voice either, although its a bit better than Starr’s. It’s Blair/ Kassie’s style, more than the voice that I don’t care for.

      I can’t understand how one little girl can cause so many people to turn off general hospital, If I felt that way about One person on any show that I watched and stopped watching because of that person it would make no sense, because there are other people living in Port Charles. there have been several people on general hospital over the years that I can’t stand like franco, Lisa niles, all the mobsters, but I kept watching, So what is the problem? Is it because she is from One life to live? I like her I have no problem with her, Is she my favorite from oltl? NO, but it will not make me want to stop watching. Hey 1loveabcsoaps, did you go see that thread about the emmys and Ericka Kane?

        No Barb, and I’m just seeing this post. I don’t know HOW I looked over it in my inbox, lol. I have been asking for you. Are you ok? How’s your health? There have been some brewing issues that you haven’t been involved in on here, so I’m wondering, is everything ok, down in paradise there. Please Advise.
        And to answer your question (above) No, I didn’t see the (thread-your wrote) or are you saying threat (not sure) about Erica Kane.

      Unless you a Neilson ratings participant with a Neilson rating box, you don’t have to keep your TV on to support ratings. The only ones that count are the participants with boxes. Their data is then transmitted to Neilson. When they say that a show has 2 million viewers, it doesn’t mean that 2 million people are transmitting data to Neilson. It’s only a small number- like 25,000 who are transmitting data. Those 25,000 represents the over 100 million TV sets in the US. It sounds like it doesn’t make sense but it is scientfic. It’s like an IQ score. The average IQ score is 100 whether you test 1,000 people or 100 million or 500 million people. You have to get a good representation of the population which is too complicated to get into here but the behavior of a small number of people CAN represent the behavior of large numbers of people.

    One of the reasons I believe they brought her on she and her brother were moving to California already and they were looking for a love interest for Michael. I am just glad they kept her as Starr and not brought her on as the new Kristina which had been rumored. I know a lot of people are upset about the crossovers I do not have a problem with that. Over at Y&R MAB has brought faces that were well known from other soaps and made new characters that is a lot more jarring to me. I think her and Chad Duell are beginning to click so I don’t see the problem.

    I love Kristen Alderson and I am pleased they brought her to GH. When OLTL was cancelled I was upset and missed Kristen being on screen. She’s a great actress so long as the writers give her a good storyline! I like some romance thrown in, I get SO sick of the mob storyline! It’ s a soap opera and the viewers I know want to see romance. Bye the way, I do not like the pairings of Molly and TJ or Taylor and Rafe. They should switch them around.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

47th Annual Daytime Emmys Draws Over 3 Million Viewers For CBS Telecast with Return to Network TV

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.
