Earlier today SOAPnet posted a new promo featuring intriguing moments and mystery on “Days of our Lives” (‘Everyone’s Dark Side Will Be Exposed in the Light of DAYS’) and now the network has published the “General Hospital” equivalent.
Titled “Tides and Tensions Rise,” viewers are asked to “soak up the drama” on “GH” weekdays on ABC. Weeknights at 7:00 PM ET/PT and 9:00 PM ET/PT on the cable network. The promo features sex, lies and murder, which just happens to be a regular occurrence on the soap.
As has been the case for the last several years, ABC will be airing a re-run of “General Hospital” on Independence Day (Thursday, July 4). The episode scheduled to air is the Wednesday, March 27, 2013 episode (#12,773), which found an injured Nikolas injected by Luke as he prepares to search for Lulu on the missing Haunted Star with Dante and Anna’s help. Laura arrives in time to join Luke on the adventure. Meanwhile, Carly debuts the Metrocourt Ballroom to Lucy and Sabrina and Felix find themselves in a tiff as they prepare for the Nurses Ball. Alexis and Shawn get a sweet surprise from Sam, Molly and TJ.
Proving you can’t believe everything you read or see tweeted, earlier this evening a Twitter posting said to be by John Reilly, who portrayed Sean Donely on ABC’s “General Hospital” from 1984 through 1995 and again for a couple of episodes on “General Hospital: Night Shift” in 2008, stated the actor would be returning to the soap after nearly a 20 year absence. The tweet raised the hopes of many fans only to have those hopes get dashed not too longer afterward. A spokesperson for the soap confirms to Soap Opera Network that the tweet was not by Reilly and that the handle is in fact a fake. “Not the real John Reilly,” the spokesperson said.
The newest issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, citing multiple sources, is reporting that there may be truth to reported rumors that Michelle Stafford is leaving Phyllis Summers and “The Young and the Restless” to head to ABC’s “General Hospital.” According to one of the mags sources, “It would be a big coup to get Michelle, and ‘GH’ knows it.” This is of course in response to “Y&R” and “GH” swapping cast members. In January, Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan, “GH”) joined “Y&R” as Dylan McAvoy, and in April, Emme Rylan (ex-Abbie Newman) joined “GH” as Lulu Spencer.
What would a summer on “General Hospital” be like if not for a triangle involving two women wanting a piece of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard)? Have no fear, SOAPnet has released a promo covering the upcoming summer adventures of the mafioso, his two women (Olivia and Connie), his family (Michael and Morgan) and his business.
In addition to the SOAPnet promo highlighting “General Hospital” and “Days of our Lives” airtimes, the cable network has released a promo touting that “Everyone’s Dark Side Will Be Exposed in the Light of DAYS.”
“There’s now more times to watch your two favorite soaps on SOAPnet,” is part of the lyrics used in a new SOAPnet promo highlighting additional airings of both “General Hospital” and “Days of our Lives,” with the former taking over the 7:00 PM ET/PT timeslot previously occupied by “The Young and the Restless,” which, as numerously reported, officially makes its move to TVGN beginning today, July 1. “GH” will continue airing at 9:00 PM ET/PT with “DAYS” airing at 8:00 PM ET/PT and 10:00 PM ET/PT.
Hot on the heels of word breaking that Kelly Sullivan (Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri) would be departing ABC’s “General Hospital” in the near future as a result of her character being written off canvas, the newest issue of Soap Opera Digest reveals that co-star Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri) has renewed her contract with the daytime soap. Ironically, the two portray cousins on “GH.”
Bella Book Productions and Open Books Productions announced today that former “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital” actress, Sarah Joy Brown, has joined the cast of the webs series “Beacon Hill,” which follows the political world in Boston, Massachusetts. Filming is set to begin later this fall in and around Boston.
