TV Guide Magazine

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — TV Guide.com and TV Guide Magazine appear to have reconciled as the two became one once again on Tuesday, June 1.

Best known to its soap readers as the place to catch the latest column from long-time soap columnist Michael Logan, TV Guide Magazine and its online counterpart, TV Guide.com, were separated in the fall of 2008 after Macrovision (then owner of the magazine, website and television network) sold the magazine portion to OpenGate Capital for a mere $1, according to a report by AdAge.com. The separation of the two resulted in the magazine portion launching its own distinctive website, which did not include the legendary guide listings found on TV Guide.com and the magazine itself. The sale of TV Guide Magazine also severed ties between it and the TV Guide Network, which was purchased along-side TV Guide.com in January 2009 by Lions Gate Television. It is unclear at this time as to how or why the magazine had returned into the fold of TV Guide branded material, but as a long-time consumer of the brand either online or in print, it feels like your long-lost brother has returned home after years of neither of you seeing each other and everything is once again right with the world.

Interestingly, Damian Holbrook, a Senior Writer for the magazine, confirmed the re-marriage on Twitter when he stated “it feels so good!” to a follower who noted the re-aligned entities. No further comments have been made by TV Guide Magazine or TV Guide.com staff on Twitter or Facebook, which houses many pages for both staffs. In fact, many of the TV Guide Magazine staff Twitter pages, including that of Senior Critic Matt Roush, continues to link to the old website for the magazine indicating that the change over seems to have been that much more recent than anyone may think.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Sonny Corinthos of ABC’s “General Hospital” (played by Maurice Benard) isn’t perfect and SOAPnet knows it, as the network that was recently dropped by the Walt Disney Company in order to debut kids network Disney Junior in 2012, is scheduled to air a four-hour marathon chronicling Sonny’s relationship with his newly discovered son, Dante Falconeri (played by Dominic Zamprogna), on Sunday, June 20 from 3-7pm ET/PT. Interestingly enough, the network, along with ABC, was originally scheduled to re-air episode #11983, in which Sonny shoots Dante before learning he is his son, on Memorial Day. However, the network pulled the episode late last week in favor of episode #12050. In that episode, Sonny’s adopted son from his marriage to Carly Jacks (Laura Wright), Michael Corinthos III (played by Chad Duell) admitted to killing Sonny’s wife and his step-mommy, Claudia Zacchara, after trying to protect his mother and little sister from Claudia’s clutches last fall.

SOAPnet Marathon Schedule

  • 3PM – General Hospital Episode #2009-11889 (Original Air Date September 11, 2009) – Sonny visits Dante in the hospital and thanks him for saving Morgan’s life.

  • 4PM – General Hospital Episode #2010-11983 (Original Air Date January 29, 2010) – The tension builds as Sonny prepares to kill Dante for betraying him. When Dante realizes what’s happening, he starts to arrest Sonny who pulls out a gun and shoots him. As Dante falls to the floor, Olivia walks in and tells Sonny that he shot his own son.
  • 5PM – General Hospital Episode #2010-11989 (Original Air Date February 8, 2010) – Dante is in the hospital recovering from Sonny’s gunshot and the two have their first conversation as father and son.
