She hosted her own talk show on Bravo last year and she's co-hosted CNN's New Year's Eve countdown presentation alongside Anderson Cooper over the last couple of years, but it's her signing on as host of "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" that promises to be one of the most memorable acts by comedian, actress, writer and producer, Kathy Griffin. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced today that Griffin will host daytime's biggest night for the first time on Sunday, June 22.
Fans who've attended the "General Hospital" fan club weekend over the years have had the pleasure of experiencing music by former "GH" star Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky Spencer) and his Enation band. Surprisingly enough, the band, which includes Jackson's real-life brother, Richard Lee, and Daniel Sweatt, have yet to perform in front of a national audience. That will soon change when they perform their new single, "Everything Is Possible," from their upcoming fall 2014 album, on ABC's "The View" and the syndicated/online talk show, "The Better Show," co-hosted by former "All My Children" actress Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe).
For the just concluded May Sweeps ratings period, ABC's "General Hospital" attracted its largest audience in seven years in Total Viewers (3.068 million) and best performance in three years in Women 18-49 (747,000/1.2 rating) and Women 25-54 (999,000/1.6 rating) – since May Sweeps 2007 and 2011, respectively. The soap ranked as the #1 daytime show in Women 18-49 (tied in rating). Further, "GH" stood as the #1 program in Women 18-34 (252,000/0.7 rating), hitting a 4 year high in the demo – since May Sweeps 2010.
For the week of May 12-16, 2014, ABC Daytime ranked #1 in Women 18-34 (199,000/0.6 rating) and Women 25-54 (784,000/1.3 rating) and tied for #1 in Women 18-49 (610,000/1.0 rating), per newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data. The network hit a 10–week highs in Total Viewers (3.2 million) and Women 18-34, and 7–week highs in Women 18-49 and in Women 25-54 – since weeks of 3/3/14 and 3/24/14, respectively.

It’s been a whopping seven years since larger-than-life personality Rosie O’Donnell has been a part of “The View,” but executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie announced today that the actress/comedian is returning to the popular talk show!
ABC's "General Hospital" continues to pace for its best season since the 2006/2007 television season as the series hit four week highs in Women 18-34 (254,000/0.8 rating – tied in rating) and was the #2 program in Women 18-49 (776,000/1.2 rating) and Women 25-54 (1.05 million/1.7 rating). The soap attracted its largest single episode audience in over 6 years in total viewers on Tuesday, January 7 as 3.55 million viewers tuned into the happenings going on in Port Charles. The last time the audience for a single episode was that high was November 12, 2007.
According to a rep for Disney/ABC, as "General Hospital," "The View" and "The Chew" weren't already in the Hulu Plus system prior to the WATCH ABC rule changes, their launch on the service was delayed as a result. It was not fan complaints that prompted their availability as originally reported.
Earlier today, we reported on changes affecting those viewers who use WATCH ABC to view their favorite ABC programming. In our report, we noted that in order to view the network's shows online or On Demand, viewers would only be able access programming within one week of air if they are a current subscriber to participating TV service providers. This change goes into effect on Monday, January 6. Not in our report was how this change would directly effect ABC Daytime's "The View," "The Chew" and "General Hospital."
On Tuesday, December 31, 2013, Disney/ABC touted its reigning champ WABC-TV as New York's most watched station in 2013 and the number one station in the country. While highlighting the success of "Live with Kelly and Michael," November's "The ING New York City Marathon," "The View," "The Chew," its Eyewitness News broadcasts, and ABC's strong primetime schedule, the company neglected to note the success of its sole remaining daytime soap opera, "General Hospital," on the station.
