As a result of the Friday, December 20 preemption, ABC's "General Hospital's" is currently behind in its airing schedule. What that means is that the previously scheduled "Home for the Holidays" themed episode set to air today, will instead air on Friday, December 27. Also shifted is the debut of "GH" newcomer Ryan Paevey in the contract role of Nathan West. The character, who was originally set to debut on tomorrow's episode, will instead debut on the Monday, December 30 episode in scenes alongside Kirsten Storms' Maxie Jones, who seeks to get out of town just as Port Charles gets ready to celebrate the New Year as a result of the recent baby drama and the need to clear her head. In real-life, Storms is headed for maternity leave as she's due to give birth in January to a little girl by husband and former "GH" co-star, Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara).

Wanna see something guaranteed to make you giggle? Then you won’t want to miss the “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) in his new gig as a talk show host! The actor has teamed up with “Y&R” production staffer Greg Edwards to create a humorous show titled “Soaps and Other Stuff,” which features “Y&R” stars answering ridiculous questions, playing silly games and being subjected to a multitude of other antics all dreamed up and acted out by Morrow himself as “host.”
Earlier this year, Soap Opera Network covered the antics of the webseries, "Old Dogs & New Tricks." In light of its recent release on DVD and availability on Hulu, we thought you'd like to catch up with all the fun that features soap stars Thom Bierdz (ex-Phillip Chancellor, "The Young and the Restless") and Ian Buchanan (Duke Lavery, "General Hospital").

In 2014, the stakes will be raised on ABC's "General Hospital," or at least that's what a newly released promo from the network tells you to expect in regards to the ongoing drama surrounding the return of Robin Scorpio Drake (Kimberly McCullough), the rivalry between Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright) and Ava Jerome (Maura West), and the Mob War that now involves Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly's son, Morgan (Bryan Craig).

On Saturday, March 8, 2014, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) will host the 5th Annual General Hospital Fan Build, where fans of the daytime soap opera get an opportunity to spend a day building a home with several of their favorite cast members. The event, which is part of Habitat's entertainment partnership program, was started up by "General Hospital's" Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri) in 2009 as a way to reward fans for their loyalty to the show, while at the same time doing a good deed.

Multiple Emmy-nominee Thorsten Kaye won the hearts of soap opera audiences with his strong portrayal of “All My Children’s” Zach Slater, “One Life to Live’s” Patrick Thornhart and “Port Charles’” Ian Thornhart, but can the actor strike gold again as Ronn Moss’ replacement in the role of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ridge Forrester? It won’t be the first time an actor has walked into the shoes of a major character whose previous portrayer is very much loved in the role, but then again, these aren’t just any old shoes to fill! Soap Opera Network caught up with Ridge’s onscreen dad, John McCook (Eric Forrester), who’s not only been working with Kaye as Ridge since day one, but who’s also quite familiar with the father/son dynamic the two characters have established over the years. Read on to get his take on the bold recasting choice, how he views Kaye’s approach to the role and what’s in store for Eric and Ridge in the weeks ahead!

With the impending debut of Ryan Paevey on Monday, December 30 in the contract role of Detective Nathan West on ABC's "General Hospital," many have noted that they've seen "that guy" before and if you're one of the millions of users that watched Christina Aguilera's "Your Body" music video on YouTube last year, you're definitely on the right track. In the video, which shows Aguilera taking control against a male dominated society, Paevey is spotted flirting with the singer while they play a game of pool before heading to the bathroom for a little fun, but instead turns into something blue!
According to Soap Opera Digest, Daniel Cosgrove has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the newly created role of Aiden. "This is the first time that I’ve ever played a daytime character that wasn’t played by someone else," said the actor to the magazine of his previous roles as Scott Chandler ("All My Children"), Chris Hughes ("As The World Turns") and Bill Lewis ("Guiding Light"), all played by several actors prior to his portrayal.
