    Also wasn’t a big Steve Burton or Jason fan. Hope he has fun at YR with his BFF– JFP, and I hope it helps YR ratings go up. Him leaving certainly has helped GH’s ratings!!!

    On to actual soap news, so sad they had Erin Hershey Presly on for just 2 episodes. What a giant waste of a great actress and character. So many GH characters that need to get offed, and they do away with Allison. Also, they didn’t put her in long enough to even really connect Rafe to town. However, I am wondering and excited about where the overall story is going.

  • Deeann

    I dislike Steve Burton very much. Will not watch anything with him in it!

  • Deeann

    And GH is come on, total crap, peeps. Can we be honest here?

  • robert sprague

    young and the restless can have steve burton gh doesn’t need him him leaving gh hasn’t hurt the ratings at all and I new it wouldn’t we have are 80s favorites back heather anna lucy Felicia duke robertnow the great genie francis scotty and frisco just waiting on ron and frank to bring back bobbi

  • Kayla Rae

    I have two words for you, JonnyBoy: Spell Check! Ha!

  • Kayla Rae

    JonnyBoy’s vitriol doesn’t bother me. Neither do Jeff’s disdainful remarks. Quite to the contrary, I consider the source and simply laugh.

  • Kayla Rae

    Steve Burton certainly flexed extremely faint acting muscles on GH. It’s good to hear from you, Jay, that he seems somewhat improved on YR. Maybe he’s taken some acting classes, huh?

  • jonboyelk

    (as I shake my head in perplexity but refrain from striking back) I am also surprised to actually be liking Burton on Y&R. All this time was he really acting at being one dimensional?

  • David

    New Ratings are posted over at the other site soap opera network. Great week for GH gained in total viewers and 18-49. Sadly all other soaps dropped. But great week as GH is on fire. Jack Wagner’s return next week and Genie Francis’s return the follwoing should only increase the ratings. Way to go Frank, Ron, and the GH Cast.

  • David

    I think Jon’s comments are uncalled for he does have some points. W I agree Kayla every week says how bad GH is and how great Days is. She gets nasty about GH but if someone does that with Days she cries victim As I just posted GH continues to post gains. Days had one week of gains but then lost those viewers. So the numbers speak for itself. GH is on fire.

  • soapydish

    So kaylaray can say GH is boring but johnboy can’t say its not? That’s crazy. Lol@the mob hit!

  • Daniel

    Very happy to see Kristen Dimera as well as Chloe back on days…and I’m glad to see them making characters both good and evil more 3 dimensional. As for General Hospital, such a gamble they are taking with the vampire storyline. 10 years ago, Port Charles was cancelled due to a lack of viewers. I don’t recall what the ratings were during their vampire storyline but this was also before vampires became mainstream. Buffy and Angel were still the “go to” vampire shows but since then Twilight and True Blood have resurrected the monster genre to a whole other level so it might work if they bring on the right characters.

  • bobbi jo

    Ooh, yuk…what are you thinking with Rafe and Kate sleeping together? Gross! Him ans Sami belong together. Why do you always let them almost get back together and then create a mess again. I wad hoping Sami was finallygoingto be happy. I also love Nicole, find her someone who will love her forever. Chloe is a big..itch!

  • bobbi jo

    Days rocks! Khloe is soooo evil.you just love to hate her. Been a fan of Days forever. Who knew…Kristen has a soft spot. Those Demearas will surprise you every time. Have to tape my show everyday in case i miss it. Thanks to the cast and crew!
