    Wow what great news this is

    On Today’s “Katie,” “General Hospital‘s” Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) revealed that Rachel Ames, who portrayed Nurse Audrey Hardy since the debut year of the soap (1963) through 2009 (with breaks in between), is returning just in time for the shows 50th anniversary.

    The actress will first appear on the Friday, March 29 episode of the series.

  • Mike

    Can’t wait to see the new ratings. According to the CBS press release Y&R is up 15% in the 18-49, 14% in 18-34. They got a 1.5 in 18-49 for the week. That has been a long time since a soap got that high in the key demo. B&B is even up in the key demos 17% in the 18-34 and 9% in 18-49. And both were up in total viewers as well.

    Will be interesting with those increases to see how all 4 soaps did for the week.

  • Chrisann D

    @David,
    Thanks so much for the great news on the OLTL cast. I am enjoying GH more than I can ever remember. Love Michael as Caleb. He plays a great”bad” guy.

    @Kayla, Really enjoying Days right now.Just hope Sonny and Will get back together.

    Keep loving the soaps!

  • robert sprague

    great news audreys back now I want to see lauras mom leslie back on gh mrs denise alexander bring Jackie tempelton back demi moore that would be great

  • David

    @Chrisann yes Caleb has been one of those great characters. I enjoy him far more than Mcbain. Gh has been something I look forward to every day so much good going on. Feels like the 80s and 90s again with the great writing, stories, and mix of past and current characters. The new character Rafe the actor who plays him does a great job. That kid will be a big star in the years to come.

  • jonboyelk

    Agree with comments about Michael Easton. Who knew he could act? Lose McBain and keep Caleb! Great Y&R scenes yesterday when Summer confessed all to Phyllis. Great job by both actresses. The show needs more of those kinds of scenes.

  • Pat

    With the new team in place (in its fifth month), I think Y and R is in pretty good shape going into its 40th!

    Case in point…Tuesday’s episode was fantastic. Especially the last 30 minutes, which could be their Emmy submission reel for the year.

    The transition from Paul on the rooftop to Nikki again playing the piano was such classic Y and R. It’s been a long time since I sat and watched in awe.

    Paul laying into Summer was GREAT! And to see it register on her face proves we have the old Phyllis back again. She’s no longer screaming in every scene. You can see her emotion again.

    There were so many well written moments…Billy going home just to be with his wife…Nikki and Victor on their couch…Summer and Fen “outside”…Abby visiting her Uncle…EVERYTHING clicked.

    It’s was so nice to see the music (for once) fit into the show, and not be forced, and the show featured vet characters. It was like watching real people talk to each other dealing with life. Classic soap opera.

  • Mike

    Pat, I totally agree. Best episode of Y&R in a long time.

    Paul has always been one of my favorite characters.

  • Kayla Rae

    That’s way cool about Audrey Hardy returning to GH, @David! And, yes, @Chrisann, I too sure do hope that Will and Sonny reunite. I’m confident they will…in time. :)

  • Kayla Rae

    As for myself, I loved the Marlena satanic possession storyline on DOOL years ago. I’m also into vampires and, truth be told, the vampire plot is one of few things I currently find interesting on GH (along with the return of Laura, of course).

  • Zanne

    General Hospital is on fire right now, thanks to the new writers, producers and the addition of Michael Easton and Roger Howarth. Been a big fan of Michael Easton ever since the Caleb days on Port Charles. I hope that ABC and Prospect Park can work out the Michael, Roger and Kristin legal issue and let them stay on GH.

  • Zanne

    For all of you wanting more info on Port Charles, search for Port Charles – Caleb and Livvie and Port Charles – Rafe and Alison on You Tube.
