52 October 24th, 2012 ABC Announces November Sweeps Preview For General Hospital!

ABC issued their official press releases for tune-in for their top daytime and primetime shows during the key November Sweeps ratings period!  Here is what the alphabet network had to say about what is to come in Port Charles!

“November is about family on ABC’s General Hospital, with family secrets that will change what everyone thought to be true, and includes a bittersweet goodbye. The Quartermaine, Scorpio and Corinthos families are shocked as loved ones return in body and in spirit. The truth is revealed about the mysterious Duke Lavery, while Patrick tries to move on with his life. The Quartermaines’ Thanksgiving tradition continues as they give thanks for all that is involved in being a family – the good, the bad and everything in between…the circle of life. The November storylines coincide with the surprising return of fan favorite Sean Kanan. General Hospital airs Monday through Friday (2:00-3:00 p.m., ET).”

So soapers, what are you most excited to see come November on GH? Let us know!

    The return of Sean Kanan is no secret. There is no talk in the release about a farewell to Edward Quartermaine/John Ingle.

    Is it me or doesn’t the press release state a “bittersweet goodbye”?

    It mentions “a bittersweet goodbye” which is obviously the farewell to Edward.

    So of course you will bring Ryan Lavery from All My Children in to meet his “Uncle”? Cameron Mathison would be a shoe in.

    Oh dear God I hope not. Of all the characters they could bring on Ryan Lavery is at the bottom of my list. Sorry. Now David Hayward I could get into.

    I so agree! Ryan Lavery is not even ON my list. The show isn’t big enough for him. :) Half the cast would have to go, to make room for RYAN. I pray that thought will never enter their minds. His arrival just might ruin the show for good.

    The only way I would want to see Ryass Lavery on General Hospital would be pieces, as an organ donor. Not that anyone would want his brain – unless some zombie-snacking was in order.

    There has never been a worse, show-eating character anywhere, and that’s saying something when you think of Sonny Corinthos, Jason Morgan, Phyllis Newman, or Victor Newman. Lavery is still the King of the Douche.

    This show is so good, that I think Gloria Monty must be smiling down from heaven. The writing is amazing and the actors bring it all to life so wonderfully. It is quite literally the Best show on Daytime.

    I respectfully disagree wholeheartedly. Gloria Monty ran a show where the bad guys paid for their crimes, and were not the reigning heroes of the show. Under her watch, villains and murderers were not made into the misunderstood good guys. The moral compass of GH has been missing since Claire Labine left the building. How I long for the heart and humanity she wrote the show with!!

    So basically what you are saying is the mob members should all get what they have coming to them. Given the Mob is basically seen as being the bad guys. So Jason deserved to die, as did Joe Jr, and likewise Sonny and Duke as well.

    Ashlee replied

    I don’t really care how they leave the show…as long as they do. They could ride off on the back of a coffee truck with a mariachi band, they could fall off the docks, they could go in a yellow Submarine for all I care. For all of us fans who have waited for the REAL GH to come back, I would say we have been more than patient. It has been SIXTEEN long, agonizing, shoot-out filled, bullet riddled, blood drenched misogynistic years of the Sonny and Jason Show. Those of you who have liked or enjoyed that….I say youve had it for more than long enough. Now it’s time to move on, and restore the show before its 50th anniversary and hopefully well beyond!

    You don’t see the lying slut and then you don’t watch. Who cares. Obviously you are not a soap fan.

    Reply

    MBmomof3 replied

    Lying sluts are a soap staple. I like Liz a lot. Is she perfect? No, but that’s why I watch. Do I watch when she’s not on? Of course. Not one character does a show make. Heaven forbid we go back to the days of 3 characters as a constant presence on our screens. I hope Liz finds herself a good man.

    Robin’s return just in time for Thanksgiving would be so awesome!!! I miss her and Patrick being together!!! I already miss Jason too even though I know he won’t be back for a little while I hope sooner than later…Another Thanksgiving blessing would be some great news and or happiness for LuLu & Dante as well as for Ms. Elizabeth!!! You all are doing an awesome job keep up the great work with the other story lines!!!

    Alan is sure to make an appearance “in spirit” for Edward’s funeral. (I hope!)

    But if they want ratings: Bring Trevor St. John on as Victor!!

    MBmomof3 replied

    Agree on both counts!

    Reply

    Tina replied

    I agree please bring Trevor St John as Victor to GH. That handsome man is so missed on my screen that it is painful sometime not seeing him as Todd. I have accepted that Roger’s version of Todd is who the TPTB wanted. But I myself loved Trevor and accepted him as Todd and was grateful for the years of entertainment he gave as an actor in his role of Todd. What I loved the most was he did not play him as a cartoon character that I personally see Todd as today.

    The show is fantastic, the writing is suberb. I like that Jason’s body was not found so that is being left open; either for recast or Steve to return at a later date. Something needs to be adcded about John Ingles passing; a Memorial written in or something. To just go on without saying or doing something out of respect and honor for his part in GH is not right at all! And please no pairing of Sam and John. OMGosh no way. His place and heart should stay with Natalie and their child. Get rid of Duke Lavery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Troy Turner replied

    Debbie,

    We all have to remember that these are human beings behind the writers/characters, and they had to go through their own grief process when John died. I’m not sure what GH’s write-to-tape ratio is, but I’d be willing to bet that it’s already been taped-and when we DO see it, it will be something that does John/Edward proud…

    so back when Luke ran over little Jake it was hinted that all was not as it seemed … since i believe AJ is the force behind all the Duke and Jerry evil … i wonder if AJ is behind that too .. he never forgave Jason for taking Michael away …

    There are only two Quartermaines left, how can they do Thanksgiving??

    Reply

    Bethy replied

    There are three left after Edward’s passing– Monica, Tracy and Michael. Plus, one more wee one will be revealed, and another one is returning (AJ). Also, Ned may not be on the show–at least not YET–but he is a Q too (Brooklyn also, but I am not so sure we’ll see her), as is Skye, via adoption. And perhaps, the ghost of another?
    –based on what I read at generalhospitalhappenings

    MBmomof3 replied

    I’m just thrilled Monica & Tracy are finally getting some airtime and storylines! Love those two no matter who they share scenes with, but especially when they share scenes together. The Quartermaines are GH and it sounfs like we’ll be treated to more Q time.

    I am most excited to see Quartermaine family and friends return for appearances on GH – probably for “Edward Q” played by the late “John Ingle’s” funeral. It will be a very sad episode or episodes, since John Ingle just passed away recently, but we know he is at peace in Heaven with his real beautiful wife. We should see Skye, Ned, AJ and dear Alan in “spirit”!!!!! Perhaps even Brooklyn will make an appearance, her mother Lois – and some other actors who are related to Mr. Q by marriage. Should be a very exciting, although somewhat sad, time for Port Charles.

    ELENI replied

    They will probably have two funerals for Edward and Jason ….
    Meanwhile monica makes a call someone comes back I think its AJ UNLESS THEY RECAST HIM AS JASON ….TIME WILL TELL ….WAIT AND SEE …

    Shirley Miller replied

    So far Jason is presumed dead but I think he is still alive. The Q’s may have a memorial service for Jason since they have not found his body. A J comes back as himself – as we now know – and wants to get to know his son – Michael better. If they decide to recast Jason, I wonder who it will be. Steve Burton plans to come back to Pt Charles on some occasions – the future of Jason and GH should prove to be very interesting!!!!!!

  18. Engrady Pind says:

    I certainly would not mind a Jason recast. Hopefully with someone who has chemistry with Kelly because despite the love scenes that had some fans in raptures over, Steve and Kelly were a big dud. Character-wise, Jason had lots more chemistry with Brenda than with Sam.

    I will be glad to see the end/back of Duke Lavery. He is creepy and totally lacking in credibility. I am really surprised Luke isn’t already using his contacts in Europe to find out about Duke’s activities in recent years.

    I am not looking forward to a return of Jerry Jax, especially as a bad boy love interest for Alexis who deserves better than Jerry. I’d much prefer to see Ned come back and sweep her off her feet. Or how about a return visit from Rick. Recast that role with someone delicious and see what happens. Too bad they used Richard Steinmetz as Joe Jr. because he would have been a credible recast of Rick. I hate it that RS is off the show. He had incredibly hot chemistry with Tracy/Jane.

    OK. When is Lucy Coe coming to town to take over Crimson?

    Do we really have to revisit the Franco crap? That was the most awful character ever conceived for the show. I can’t even bear to watch the actor any more because of that repulsive degenerate character.

    I will be glad to see that back of NuKristina. If we are getting a Starr-Trey pairing I can buy into that because there is chemistry there.

    How soon will Connie be put in a straight jacket? Maybe she can share a room with Heather.

    Duke is a douche I think the writers waiting to see ratings then they will see if he stays ….I don’t like duke @ all.

    they have insane chemistry ….LOL LOL LMFAO ABOUT STRAIGHT JACKET YOU ARE FUNNY ….RIGHT ABOUT STARR AND TREY I AGREE …..

    How can Jason be alive? He was dead long before he got shot at the docks. I swear I haven’t seen that man act “alive” in years.

    And Jason has Duke beat for murders and all along bad guy behavior. And at least Duke doesn’t wear the same teeshirt and jeans for years on end. PEEE UUUU…..

    there was a scene between Tracy & Luke where they said noone ever dies in Port Charles.Jason is too important a character to kill off.These writers are not stupid

  21. liv says:

    Glad they’ll have something for John Ingle’s passing. I’m sure there will be lots of flashbacks and people coming back (in reality or spiritually) for it which will be nice. Also happy about the Q Thanksgiving tradition. It’s nice to see some things come back. Not sure I really care about SK, aka AJ, coming back AGAIN, but it is what it is and we’ll just have to see who knew he was alive and what he’s been up to. I certainly hope there is LESS Sam now. I’m sick and tired of her, eventhough I do like her with McBain. Actually, I’m sick of all the Davis girls. I’m also glad Jason fell into the harbor. Hopefully IF he comes back/is found alive, he’ll actually have his brain back and maybe even Jake with him. I’m certain Robin won’t be back until Patrick has finally moved on or gotten comfortable with dating – it is a soap after all. I want Elizabeth to have a good story possibly with her father coming to town. Luke can leave town and stay gone with Lucky. Duke can have Anna because I always loved them together but this time she can stay police commissioner and have to deal with her love for him and his being the real mob boss. You know – good girl, bad boy – classic love story for soaps! Loved Anna-Duke; Loved Liz-Jason. Tha’s what I’d like – you asked. LOL
