On Saturday, April 6, “A Special Edition of 20/20 with Katie Couric: General Hospital – The Real Soap Dish” beat out the first original airing of NBC’s “Smash” in head to head combat with the Katie Couric hosted special ranking second in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, behind only the “NCAA Basketball Tournament,” according to TVbytheNumbers.
On Enation’s YouTube page, band member Jonathan Jackson posted a heartfelt message to ABC’s “General Hospital” as it celebrates its 50th year on television. The singer and actor, now portraying Avery Barkley on ABC’s “Nashville,” portrayed the Emmy Award winning role of Lucky Spencer on “GH” from 1993 to 2011 (with breaks in between).
You can expect to see a doctor, a nurse, and…the son of Zeus next week on “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
As previously reported, Jon Hensley is back as Dr. Meade on Monday, April 8, Tuesday, April 9 and Wednesday, April 10.
Maria Russell will portray Nurse Amanda Smith on those same days.
Jess Allen will portray “Hercules” on Monday, April 8.
ABC’s news program, “Good Morning America” was the latest show to feature a special segment on “General Hospital” in celebration of the sudser’s 50th Anniversary. And the resulting fun is a can’t-miss for die-hard fans!
ABC’s “The View” is hosting a very special “Guy Friday” episode, and guess who’s popping in to co-host? The beloved Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing, “Dallas;” ex-Stephen Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”)!
On the show, which regularly features co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, Duffy will help the team tackle subjects like the latest in sneaker fashions and how to talk to your kids about sex. But the highlight will no doubt be when Harrison Ford and Chadwich Boseman join the group to promote their latest film, “42.”
Production on the new ABC Family drama series, “The Fosters” starts today, meaning Sherri Saum (ex-Keri Reynolds, “One Life to Live;” ex-Vanessa Hart, “Sunset Beach”) is back to work! But just what will the actress be doing under executive producer Jennifer Lopez’ command?
Turns out, the actress is playing opposite Teri Polo, and both women play gay mothers raising a mix of multi-ethnic foster and biological children. Since the show takes a hard look at gay marriage and parenting within a groundbreaking premise that addresses the foster care system, mixed racial families and teen issues, it’s sure to be a topic of discussion as the Supreme Court rules on the legalities of the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage next month.
“One Life to Live’s” Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio Vega) has done a slew of gigs since leaving Llanview in 2009, including guest stints on “CSI: Miami,” “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” and “The Mentalist.” And now he’s adding one more show to his resume: CBS’s procedural drama series, “Blue Bloods”!
A CBS spokesperson has confirmed to Soap Opera Network that “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Zack Conroy (Oliver Jones) will crossover to “The Young and the Restless” for two episodes beginning with the Tuesday, May 21 episode. Conroy will begin filming his May sweeps ending stint in the coming weeks. The news was first reported by Daytime Confidential.
In the 60th anniversary special double issue of TV Guide Magazine (April 8 – 21, 2013), ABC’s “General Hospital” secured a four-page spread on its 50th anniversary, but Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) ultimately secured the biggest spotlight of them all. The dynamic duo, in their famous wedding shot compiled of past covers of TV Guide Magazine, received the back cover spot of the mag which features the hit shows from every decade since the publications launch including “I Love Lucy” (1950s), “Star Trek” (1960s), “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (1970s), “The Cosby Show” (1980s), “The Simpsons” (1990s) and “Lost” (2000s) on special collector’s edition front cover copies of the celebratory issue.
For more than 41 years ABC’s “All My Children” entertained millions of viewers each and every weekday, week after week, year after year. Sadly, the network canceled the soap in 2011 and the series aired its then final episode in September of that year. Now, in anticipation of its return on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, April 29, The OnLine Network has released a recap of the series as narrated by Debbi Morgan (Angie Hubbard).
