Daytime fans might be used to presently seeing actor Wally Kurth as Justin Kiriakis on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but it wasn’t so long ago that the actor played “General Hospital’s” Ned Ashton. And guess what? It looks like he’ll be headed back to Port Charles in the near future!

“I had a nice day in Port Charles yesterday,” the actor tweeted on Wednesday, March 12. “Yes, Ned will be arriving in town soon. Stay tuned. Thanks for waiting!”

At press time, a rep for “GH” had no comment regarding Kurth’s return and first airdate.

Alan Thicke, one of America’s most popular TV dads, has landed his very own reality show for TVGN! And it looks like several stars — including former “General Hospital” actor John Stamos (ex-Blackie) — will be dropping by to add to the zany fun!

Titled “Unusually Thicke,” the 14-episode original reality series follows the former “Growing Pains’” star and his spicy and much-younger wife, Tanya, as well as his dry-witted and opinionated 16-year-old son, Carter, as the family navigates the humorous situations that often happen in their everyday lives.

Cancel your evening plans and grab some popcorn, because ‘Soap Life,’ a documentary chronicling the rise and fall of the American soap opera, was released today!

Available on a variety of platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, Playstation and Vudu, the film explores the histories of soaps like “All My Children,” “One Life to Live,” and “Guiding Light,” attempting to find out why — despite millions of fans and loyal viewers — so many iconic shows have disappeared from the American television landscape.

The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.

Despite the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences declaring last October that the web sudsers were eligible to compete against “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital,” only four actors are on the list: Oustanding Younger Actress pre-nominees Kelley Missal (Danielle Manning, “OLTL”) and Denyse Tontz (Miranda Montgomery, “AMC”) and Outstanding Younger Actor pre-nominees Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King, “OLTL”) and Eric Nelson (AJ Chandler, “AMC”).

“General Hospital’s” Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer) is no stranger to heartbreaking baby loss storylines. As “Guiding Light’s” Lizzie Spaulding, she had to play out the emotional arc in which Lizzie believed her daughter, Sarah, had died in a car accident. And while Rylan is proud of the work she was able to bring as her Springfield alter ego, she’s of the opinion that now having two children of her own (Jackson, 4, and Levi, 2) is making her current baby-loss storyline much stronger.
