    TV Guide’s Michael Logan just tweeted that Billy Miller is joining GH. This will boost ratings even more. GH is on a roll.

  • GH DAYS fan

    When will DAYS take a lesson from that? The DAYS cast is totally brilliant, but they’re getting such dumb storylines. The head writers are writing the characters in such a stereotypical, flat and dull way that it hurts!!

  • peoples choice.

    Ron is destroying gh. Too many characters. Im so tired of characters no being who they are. Fake duke. Fake anna. Now fake luke when does it stop. Guess its easier writing that way. When you can’t write. Days does a great job on putting a spin on real life stories. Now that’s writing ron.
