General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.
With ABC becoming full owner of "The View," after buying out Barbara Walters' stake over the summer, the network announced today that the daytime talker will now fall under the purview of ABC News after more than 17 years under the entertainment division, this despite a drastic makeover this fall with the inclusion of three new hosts joining Whoopi Goldberg on the panel. With the talk show now falling under the umbrella of the news division, “General Hospital" and "The Chew" remain the only entertainment programming airing during the daytime on the network.
Something wicked this way comes: “The Taking of Deborah Logan,” a horror flick starring “All My Children’s” Jill Larson (ex-Opal Cortlandt)! And with Halloween creeping closer, there’s no better time to delve deep into the devilishly delightful (or rather, frightful) details of the film, which is already being heralded as an occult classic. Soap Opera Network caught up with Larson to the get the behind-the-scenes scoop, so read on for the scary details — if you dare!
As previously reported, soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions“), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“Passions,” “General Hospital”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) have signed on for POP's newest reality series, "Queens of Drama," where the ladies will work together to produce a pilot for a new serialized primetime drama series. As the poster above warns, today, October 28, marks the beginning of production for show. Donna Mills (“General Hospital,” “Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place”) will also be taking part with special appearances.
Why stop at being a hot soap actor when you can be a hot soap actor and a hot correspondent for “Extra?” That seems to be the thinking of “General Hospital” star Ryan Paevey (Nathan West), who has stepped into the role of TV journalist for the popular entertainment show, managing to not only snag an interview with “GH” executive producer Frank Valentini, but also to get the scoop on the drama headed toward Port Charles during November Sweeps!
