General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

As a result of a presidential press conference taking the place of today's, November 5, episode of ABC's "General Hospital" in several major markets, including six of the eight markets that recently moved the show back to its original time slot, the daytime soap opera will be airing in the overnight hours on those impacted stations for what is known as makegoods. This process finds stations re-running a program that may have been interrupted in any significant way in its corrected form at a later time.
Of all the things that have been said on the set of “General Hospital,” the recent “Tony’s Back!” takes the cake. And it’s a phrase that’s not only being said everywhere within the soap world, it’s what was written on the shirts of the “GH” cast and crew members who gathered to surprise Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer) as he finally returned to the soap after a long hiatus and recovery from back surgery!
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!
