    GH is the best it’s been in years! I couldn’t stand GH under Phelps and Guza. They got rid of all the vets and focused the show around a group of four characters. On any given day, i would rather see Ron and Frank running the show. We now see an entire cast of characters and stories that intertwine with another. They have managed to bring back a few vets in a few month time period. I love the addition of Todd, Starr and John to the stories. I can’t image how horrible a 50th anniversary show under Phelps and Guza. I am looking forward to see Ron and Frank up their sleeves for the next few months and hoping GH survives past their 50th.

    I agree Patrick. Better now than in years. I’m loving GH and will continue to do so for however long we have it. This is the best time I’ve had watching GH in so long. Everyday now I holler out loud, laugh out loud, say “OOOOH” or my mouth drops open at some point in GH. That’s a good soap opera!!! Go Frank V!! Go Ron C!! We love you more that those that don’t.

  • It is over

    If anyone thinks that GH is going to continue they are sadly mistaken. ABC cancels any show. They never let any show develop worth looking at. They are trying to get rid of there core and for what Katie Couric. Who is a liberal. I am not interested in her opinionated show. ABC going to say GH does not have significant # to stay on the air. They should have put Katie’s show at two and left GH alone. No one is interested in another talk show.

    I am so happy General Hospital has not been cancelled. Isn’t it obvious by the popularity of Downton Abbey that people STILL LOVE THE SOAPS?! Keep soaps on. There are too many talk shows and they are redundant! Same guests making the circuits, same topics, blah, blah, blah. Same with cooking shows. We want to lose weight, not learn how to eat more! Enough!!!!!
