For the 60 million television households still lucky enough to receive SOAPnet via their cable or satellite provider you'll be happy to know (or not) that the network is presenting a nine-hour marathon of party-themed episodes from "Veronica Mars," "One Tree Hill" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" in honor of New Year's Day 2013 (January 1, 2013).
According to a report by the New York Post, ABC is developing a real-life version of its popular daytime soap "General Hospital." A network spokesperson confirmed the Post's report and said that the possible series, which recently began taping at UCLA Medical Center, is in its "earliest, pilot stages," and is intended "either for syndication or maybe cable." Of course, the news has put soap opera fans into a tizzy as they are now worried about the fate of "GH" when they really shouldn't be - yet.
