    WOW

  • David G

    This is pretty whack. The Juan character was hated by the majority of the audience and Michael Saucedo is anything but a break out talent in acting. I think it’s obvious that his wife Becky pulled some strings with Cartini.
    This is another ill advised move by GH’s most inept regime. SMH. I wont be watching this junk.

    • Elizabeth Gunther

      Your definition of inept is very different from mine. How is making GH #1 in the ratings inept?

      • David G

        General Hospital hasnt been n umber one in the ratings since 1988. Currently GH rose to number one in the 18-34 demo which is what I expected. The younger generation didnt see GH in it’s grand hey day. They are used to the kind of cartoonish garbage that Cartini writes.
        However YR is number one in total viewers with over 4.7 million. And YR is still number one in the key women 18-49 demo.
        GH has approximately 2.8 million total viewers.
        They are hardly number one. Cartini has been very inconsistent in ratings. They spike up when vets return ( like during the Anniversary) and then they spike down.
        Ratings are spiking now not because of grand writing by Cartini, but because Kim McCollough has returned. Cartini has made more stupid casting and story mistakes than any regime in GH history.
        The fiasco with their pet one life actors was embarrassing and completely unprofessional. The recasting of Roger Howarth as a platinum blonde Franco was just one example. The ignorant plotting of what could have been one of the show’s best adventure plots-Robin’s kidnapping is another.
        Their lame DID story with that god awful Kelly Sullivan. The list goes on. GH has not significantly grown in their over all audience in over 12 yrs now. Back in the late 90s the show could at least maintain 6 million or so viewers, now under Cartini they cant keep 3 million. The viewers GH has is not because of Cartini it’s because the viewers are afraid to lose GH so they cling to it and they take what they can get.
        This past yr Cartini had all the elements to completely overtake YR in over all viewers. All the vets were there including Tony Geary and Genie Francis. But can GH ever get 5 million viewers again-no freaking way. They have not recaptured all millions of viewers they lost since Bryan Frons and ABC turned the show into the sopranos. I’ve followed this show’s performance since the 1970s.
        When they can keep 3 million viewers and when they take at least the number 2 spot in the ratings Ill be impressed. Not until. They are ignorant hacks who have turned a once iconic show into a cartoon.

          Actually David G look at the most recent ratings GH is also number 1 now in 18-49 so you would be incorrect. Since the 18-34 and 18-49 determines what advertiser will pay to advertise during the show they are gong to do what works to bring this audience in.

          Robin’s return wouldn’t be drawing ratings if the story wasn’t well written

          • avidfan

            It isn’t well-written. I have been a GH fan for over 30 years and am appalled at what we’re being asked to swallow. Why is Jerry Jax still alive? He overcame two WSB agents with guns and 2 “master” criminals. Really? Why did Luke leave him alive? Why would Faison agree to do anything Jerry asks?
            I understand the term “youthful ignorance”, but Morgan has taken it to a new level.

          • Bexx The Clown

            Well avidfan based on your comments then Luke spencer, Robert Scorpio, Anna Devane all should not be on canvs amongst some others.
            I consider the Robin return to be extremely well written and the ratings are obviously showing it.

          • Debbie Young

            You think Robin will get back before Patrick & Sabrina get married???

        • LindsayTS

          Y&R is a joke right now, why it is #1 is a mystery to me. The show has been ruined. Long time characters have been ruined. the back & forth between Victor & Nikki, the affair with Lauren & Carmine.

    • Mackenzie

      I agree with you David G, GH hasn’t hasn’t been the same in years. I watch it off an on, but not everyday like I used it to. It’s a very different show from what I was used to seeing years ago. Only a few storylines peek my interest and Juan coming back & Robin’s return aint it. GH has turned into full blown crap. Y&R, B&B, & Days are a lot better than this show.

  • Elizabeth Gunther

    I’m shocked. I wasn’t a big Juan fan, especially in the end, but this could prove interesting.

    • Mackenzie

      Or just be plain boring. To begin with, Juan wasn’t all that interesting. Now he’s back & for what? To confirm that Sabrina is not his cousin, but his sister? I pass! GH hasn’t been right since Ron & Frank took over.

  • Debbie Young

    I feel like they are grasping at straws. Their story lines get dumber & dumber. I hate this LuLu and Maxi, and we all know Brits baby prob belongs to LuLu & Dante. I dont think I watched it when Juan was on there. AND I am about to barf or Morgan & Ava. Wish they would figure that the AG Connie wrote in blood was Ava Gerome not AJ.

  • GH Fan

    Wow, why are so many of you bashing GH? It is an escape from reality. Let your minds relax and enjoy. I give the writers credit. It cannot be easy to keep writing and writing and writing day in and day out. Don’t watch if you cannot handle the ever changing dynamics.
    It is way better than any other soap and we need to promote it so it stays on the air. Please ease up.

    • Nancy Sager

      you are so right that we watch our soaps to escape from our world of reality, but when the story lines are drawn out way to long, we become bored, and frustrated and become uninterested. Enough already……

  • Nancy Sager

    I am 81 years young and have watched GH since it was on. I have watched through all the ups and downs, the good and bad, the good changes and the terrible changes, BUT
    the story lines lately are drawn out way to long to the point of being predictable and boring. I have heard the same dialog from the same actors to many times. The actors they are replacing in the old roles are a joke, and are not believable in the part. PLEASE bring back Jason , allow Robin to reunite with Patrick and Emma, finish this stupid story line with the baby mix up. and get on with life in Port Charles….
