After five weeks of non-stop drama, one of my favorite new television shows, “Political Animals,” is concluding its six-episode mini-series run on USA Network tonight.

Throughout its run, “Animals” has surrounded the lies, the affairs, the betrayals, and the numerous addictions of the Hammond family. As the families matriarch, Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver), the former First Lady and Governor of Illinois, and current Secretary of State, is once again seeking to become the first female President of the United States. While she believes President Garcetti (Adrian Pasdar) is a good man, she feels she can do a much better job in the most powerful position in the world. In the season finale, aptly titled “Resignation Day,” Garcetti throws an unexpected curve ball in Barrish’s plan to resign from his cabinet by asking her to be his Vice President in the next election. This comes as an unexpected twist, considering Garcetti already has a Vice President in Fred Collier (Dylan Baker). Being that “Political Animals” is a primetime political soap opera, things are likely to happen that may end up putting a wrench in Garcetti’s plan in the end.

As has traditionally been the case for the past couple of years, ABC has announced that it will be re-running a previously aired episode of “General Hospital” on Labor Day (Monday, September 3).

Soap Opera Network has learned that the network will re-air the Monday, July 23, 2012 episode of “GH,” which found Anna discovering Luke in a fiery garden shack, Lulu confronting Patrick over his drug problem, Todd challenging Blair over her feelings and Connie paying Johnny a visit.

Full Episode Description:
It appears Luke might expire in the fire he accidentally started when Anna arrives to the rescue.  Their reunion is cut short by Heather. Someone is shot. Earlier, Heather battles Olivia with LSD-filled syringe and injects her with the hallucinogenic.  Dante arrives. Connie pays Johnny a visit and admits she’s keeping Kate from being fully integrated. Unbeknownst to them, the camera Heather planted in the office for Todd is on.  Meanwhile, Michael and Starr grow closer and Starr feels ever more grateful to Johnny for giving her the chance to move on after losing her boyfriend and daughter. Lulu confronts Patrick about his continued drug use.  Patrick confesses that he’s afraid to give the pills up because he’ll have to deal with the reality that Robin is gone.  Todd is stung by learning of Blair’s engagement to Tomas and challenges her to say she doesn’t still love Todd.

“General Hospital” moves to a new time period beginning Monday, September 10 (2:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT/CT). The network promises to thrill audiences in the days leading up to the timeslot switch with lives hanging in the balance and shocking revelations hitting Port Charles. Who survives and who thrives?

On the Friday, August 3 episode of ABC’s “General Hospital” fans were shocked to learn that Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roché) was back! This time the mastermind behind the Metro Court disaster is working with Ewen Keenan (Nathin Butler), and once again Mr. Jacks is playing with the life of Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) – he previously shot her under the guise of Mr. Craig while trying to prove how serious the hostage situation was to those present.

Jerry’s return plays a pivotal part in the upcoming storyline that will help transition “General Hospital” into its new timeslot (2:00 PM ET/1:00 PM PT) on ABC.

In addition to Jerry, fans can look forward to the return of Jasper “Jax” Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) later this month. According to sources, Jax returns to Port Charles in a more favored circumstance as his ex-wife Carly (Laura Wright) comforts him. Rademacher’s first airdate is scheduled for the week of August 20.
