With a new year on the horizon it's inevitable that you'll be seeing a multitude of best and worst lists covering every facet of the entertainment world, and soaps are no exception. In his Best and Worst of 2015 report, TV Guide's Michael Logan has named CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" daytime's best soap, praises "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" for having the best actors and actresses, and calls out some of daytime's current and former writers for insulting viewers with tawdry storylines lacking direction.
Last week "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that there will be plenty of villains hanging around the denizens of Port Charles this fall and he wasn't kidding. While a show rep issued a "no comment" when contacted by Soap Opera Network, actress Robin Mattson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that she is returning to the daytime soap as Heather Webber in the near future. "Heather is returning to GH soon!" read Mattson's Facebook posting. Fans last saw Heather in February, when she was carted off to jail.
In conjunction with the new season launch of "Deadly Affairs" starring Susan Lucci ("All My Children," "Devious Maids") on Saturday, August 16 at 10:00 PM ET/9:00 PM CT, Investigation Discovery has announced the return of its daytime soap block hosted by several adored past and present soap stars. The block consists of encore episodes of some of the network's most scandalous series, such as "Wives with Knives," "My Dirty Little Secret," "Scorned: Love Kills" and "Evil Twins." Taking in the soap block as hosts are "General Hospital’s" Lynn Herring and Kin Shriner, "Days of our Lives’" Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth, Lamon Archey from "The Young and the Restless," Darnell Williams from "All My Children" and telenovela actress Katie Barberi ("Dona Barbara"). The block kicks off Monday, August 25 with "Sinful Secrets Week."
Tuesday, April 1 marks the 51st anniversary of ABC's "General Hospital." To honor its special day, the series is promising viewers plenty of love, life and nostalgia, which includes the re-appearance of two of its most popular and celebrated actresses per a report by Daytime Confidential.
There’s been some behind the scenes buzz that perhaps Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins, “General Hospital”) and Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews, “The Young and the Restless;” Dixie, “All My Children”) recently had a secret wedding ceremony, but it’s a mere rumor no longer: Lindstrom has revealed that McClain is in fact his brand new wife!

"General Hospital" Fan favorites Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara), Bradford Anderson (ex-Damien Spinelli), Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht), Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe) and Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) are heading to Florida this fall as they get ready to party it up with fans in Orlando the weekend of Friday, November 7 through Sunday, November 9.
There have been a slew of stories celebrating soap operas’ recent turnaround in the ratings game as of late, but it’s an unexpected trend worth repeating: Soaps are back, baby! And “General Hospital,” which was marching toward an ABC death similar to “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” is doing particularly well. Soap Opera Network sat down with the sudser’s very own William DeVry (Julian Jerome), who discussed some particulars of why “GH” is on such an upswing. And while he was at it, he revealed some details on what’s to come in Julian’s life, as well!
As previously reported, the annual "General Hospital" Fan Club weekend will take place from Thursday, July 31 through Monday, August 4 at the Sportmen’s Lodge Hotel and Events Center in Studio City, CA. Tickets for the Kick Off Cocktail Party, Main Cast and Blast from the Past – Part II events went on sale last week Monday.
In the 60th anniversary special double issue of TV Guide Magazine (April 8 - 21, 2013), ABC's "General Hospital" secured a four-page spread on its 50th anniversary, but Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) ultimately secured the biggest spotlight of them all. The dynamic duo, in their famous wedding shot compiled of past covers of TV Guide Magazine, received the back cover spot of the mag which features the hit shows from every decade since the publications launch including "I Love Lucy" (1950s), "Star Trek" (1960s), "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (1970s), "The Cosby Show" (1980s), "The Simpsons" (1990s) and "Lost" (2000s) on special collector's edition front cover copies of the celebratory issue.
