Rumors of Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott, "The Young and the Restless") joining the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" have been out there almost as long as rumors of Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis Summers, "Y&R") joining the daytime drama series had been, but sometimes rumors turn out to have major truth to them, especially with Stafford recently joining the cast in the contract role of Nina Clay. Earlier this evening, TV Guide's Michael Logan tweeted, "Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I'm hearing."
When a fan commented on a recent update of the "General Hospital" opening sequence featuring the inclusion of Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay), Nathan Varni, Manager, Current Series, ABC, responded to the viewer with news that there will be multiple new openings showcasing the talented cast of the daytime drama series in the near future. If you're wondering how soon that'll be, a representative for the soap tells Soap Opera Network, "Viewers will start seeing the new openings in early July."
For the week of June 2-6, 2014, ABC's "General Hospital" ranked as the week’s #1 program in daytime among Women 18-49 (680,000/1.1 rating – tied on rating) and placed an ultra-competitive #2 in Women 25-54 (909,000/1.5 rating), rising to 8-week highs in the target demos – since week of 4/7/14, per Nielsen Media Research ratings data.

Actor Robert Gant ("Queer as Folk") is set to reprise the role of David Sherman, the son of longtime Chancellor lawyer Mitchell Sherman (William Wintersole), for mutliple episodes on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" beginning next month, reports Soap Opera Digest.
On Thursday, June 5, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), which oversees the Daytime Emmy® Awards, announced that on Sunday, June 22, its presentation of "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" will mark the first time the organization will have presented the awards show exclusively online as a live stream.
