Matt Cohen, How to Get Away with Murder
As previously reported, actor Matt Cohen ("How to Get Away with Murder") has recently joined the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" in the role of Griffin Munro, Sonny Corinthos' (Maurice Benard) new doctor who shares a past connection with someone already in Port Charles. He'll debut on the Friday, February 5 episode of the soap. In the meantime, why not have your first look at what the new hot doctor looks like standing next to his rowdy patient?
Ashley Jones
If you tuned into today's episode of ABC's "General Hospital," you might have been shocked to learn that the professor Kristina Davis (Lexi Ainsworth) admitted to have been willing to have sex with in order to receive a passing grade was not a man, but a woman! Even more shocking was how the soap was able to keep any hint of who would be portraying the role under wraps. Enter "The Bold and the Beautiful's" Ashley Jones (Bridget Forrester) as Parker Forsyth.

Daytime Snubs Itself Out of Awards Contention

The Casting Society of America
Last week, the Casting Society of America (CSA) presented "The 31st Annual Artios Awards," which honors casting directors for their hard work and dedication to casting television shows and films across the country during calendar year 2015. Sadly, for the first time in as many years, daytime was shut out of recognition by the organization. It only has itself to blame.
After struggling in the fall, ABC's "The View" appears to be turning things around. The daytime talk show, along with network counterpart "The Chew," attracted their largest audiences in a year, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of January 18-22, 2016.
Lynn Herring
Since being brought back to ABC's "General Hospital" in a recurring capacity in 2013, actress Lynn Herring has proven time and time again how viable her role as Lucy Coe is to the legacy of the daytime drama series, particularly in regards to the annual Nurses Ball event. Sadly, the soap hasn't provided the actress with enough story potential for her character, whose married so many men in Port Charles that she rivals only Pine Valley's Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) from "All My Children." Herring recently took to Facebook to share her desire to do more than an average day player appearance on the soap.

Lachlan Buchanan
Fans of "The Young and the Restless'" Lachlan Buchanan (Kyle Abbott) may miss seeing their favorite actor on the daytime drama series on a more consistent basis, now that he's on recurring status with the daytime soap, but at least they'll soon be able to see him in primetime in an upcoming episode of CBS' "NCIS."
CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless" were both up week-to-week in total viewers during the week of January 18-22, 2016, according to newly released ratings data. Showing a dramatic uptick in audience throughout its current iteration, "Let's Make a Deal 2" delivered its largest weekly audience ever. "Let's Make a Deal 1" delivered its best performance since January 31, 2014.
Christopher Sean
