“General Hospital’s” 50th Anniversary commemoration episodes have been bringing the sudser some of its highest ratings in months, and the numbers haven’t stopped soaring! According to a press release sent out by the network, the show’s recent baby and legal drama powered it to a five-month high of 2.78 million total viewers. In addition, the episodes propelled the show to its 2nd-most-watched week in five months in Women 18-49 (665,000/1.0 rating) and Women 25-54 (917,000/1.5 rating), respectively.
ABC’s “General Hospital” is fast becoming the place to be to hopefully find the one it seems as another pair of stars have revealed their real-life relationship status, this time via social media.
Hot on the heels of word that Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara) were an item, and the recent revelation of Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome) and Chad Duell (Michael Quartermaine) hooking up, comes word that Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) and Kelly Thiebaud (Britt Westbourne) are also a couple!
Most 4th of July barbeques entail a few hamburgers and hotdogs getting fired up on the grill, but that wasn’t the case for some Port Charles residents on “General Hospital,” who instead saw Emma’s (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) baby doll, Ariel, go up in flames in place of the typical tasty treats. And the clip, which has Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) throwing the plastic doll off her lap and onto the grill after it tinkles on her, made it onto the website for E! Entertainment Television’s comedic series, ‘The Soup!’ “Not everyone is good with kids,” says Tim Jennings about the clip. “In fact, if you don’t have one and aren’t used to interacting with them, a conversation with a random child can end up feeling awkward. If this ever happens to you, don’t despair. At the very least, it will never be as bad as what happened to Britt on ‘General Hospital’ this week.”
