I thought AMC EP Ginger Smith was supposed to be on as well? If she’s not going to be on I’m not going to be tuning in.

With Michael hosting this show each week I worry there’s going to be very little AMC content.

When OLTL comes back from Hitaus in Aug. I hope the new writers change the theme song of OLTL. I feel no connection with the song to OLTL. Hearing it for a while and I still
don’t like it. I like theme song that OLTL had before they went off the T.V. That feels like more like OLTL song to me than the new one .

Will you be having a show on July 4th?

Ellen DeGeneres Signs On To Continue Her Talk Show For Three More Years

After rumors were swirling that Ellen DeGeneres was considering moving on from her highly successful daytime talk show after 16 years, all of that was kiboshed, when earlier this week on Tuesday, Ellen announced herself that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would continue on for three more years through 2022.  DeGeneres inked a new deal to stay put.

In her video announcement to her studio and at-home audience, she expressed: “From the beginning, I said this show was going to be like a relationship. We’ve been through the good, the bad, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ phase. It’s been a lot of fun and 16 years is a pretty good run. Sometimes in a relationship, you need to take a break. But I don’t. You’re stuck with me. I just signed for three more years.”

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

A GH spokesperson told Michael Fairman TV on the change: “We ‘opened it up’ so that we could better feature our amazing cast.  And the back plate of the hospital is to honor our longtime GH fans.  The new music was composed by Paul Glass.”

So, what do you think of the new opening title sequence featuring the slides of the characters/cast in Port Charles, the pace of the new theme, and the retro use of the GH hospital image? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
