Due to a White House press conference, ABC’s “General Hospital” will be preempted today, December 20, 2013. As a result, episodes will be pushed back and today’s previously scheduled original will instead air on Monday, December 23. In a statement, ABC says, “We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you’ll tune in Monday for a fantastic episode!”
Despite the push back, “GH” will still air a rebroadcast of the December 2, 2013 episode on Tuesday, December 24. The show will be preempted again on Christmas Day (Wednesday, December 25), while new episodes are still scheduled to air on Thursday, December 26 and Friday, December 27. The soap won’t sync up with its original airing schedule for a number of weeks.
A bizarre story is making national news headlines: Michaele Salahi, notoriously known as the woman who crashed a White House party, and Journey musician Neal Schon are planning a “dream wedding” that will be broadcast on pay-per-view. And the soap opera twist comes in the form of “All My Children’s” Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) acting as host!
Mathison will join Debbie Matenopoulos and Karyn Bryant on Sunday, December 15 to host the special event, which Schon says he’s thrilled to be able to share with fans. “We were approached by a few networks wanting to tape, edit, and then broadcast the wedding as the beginning of a reality series focusing on our lives together,” he explains. “Ultimately, we thought, ‘Hey, why give up creative control when we can do the whole thing live and share the wedding and the music directly with our fans, who have been so incredible.”
