    I would like to see The Cassidines they are always so much fun and Jerry Jaks. But please I am on the edge of my seat waiting for Rick to return. Read September. I hope so way past time to reunite Ric & Molly! Please please let it be September. And of course our favorite villain Fluke! Who is he? Can’t wait to find out! Please Ric first in September! Love Rick. Not a villain but so much fun & talented. #BRINGRiCBACkNOW. #TeamRic.

    I think Fluke is working for Faith Roscoe. She hates Sonny!

    Bohemien replied

    Yes I agree with you Judy- Faith Roscoe is a great choice for villainess comback. (as long she is still played by Cynthia P) She played the psycho-villain fem fatale to a tee. I just don’t know if there will be any scenes left to chew since it’s usually ravaged by Maura West and now Michelle Stafford (ugh) Cynthia was chilling.
    I liked Helena because she is played by Constance Towers who has a serpentine smile and malevolent glint in her eye. It’s just that I’m tired of the Cassadine redux- it gives me reflux.

    I’m more concerned about his comment of “pushing the envelope”. That usually doesn’t mean in a good way on this show IMO. That said, I’ll be watching and hoping for great writing, casting, acting and production. Wishing all the best for GH and the fans.

    He means more gay story lines.

    I could care less about “pushing the envelope” type storylines. I want more friendships, romances, core families, and respect paid to the returning veterans. As for the gay storylines, that’s fine, but don’t “dumb it down” and write it stereotypical-which is being doneith Brad, Lucas, and Felix. I think that’s really sad and disrespectful. I think the writing has been all over the map and dreadful. DOOL has much more balance and the writers pay close attention to the veteran characters.

    MBmomof3 replied

    Timmm, I hadn’t thought of ” pushing the envelope” meaning “gay”. I have no problem with gay characters or storylines. I agree with @dmr’s take on it. I think TPTB want “shock and awe” and often miss the core of what is great character-driven story. GH is all over the map in their writing, balance and pacing. I enjoy the show, but they are so inconsistent and often miss the mark because they seem to want the next BIG thing. Whatever that is to them.

    Back to what Valentini said, the audience shouldn’t have to be challenged, TPTB at GH should be challenged. JMO.

    Not really sure the show really needs more villains it seems like the town has its quota, but I suspect Jerry Jacks will be back, as well as Heather Weber, perhaps some defrosted Cassadines —- and I’m sure whoever Fluke is associated with or is will be revealed.

    Not sure if I am comforted by Frank’s words that they want to challenge viewers ability to accept, understand and be entertained by this show—when I hear words like that I have visions of the television shows like Lost or Twin Peaks, where you had no idea what was going on, you never sure if you really even liked the show, but dang you were hook, because you wanted to see if it eventually make sense. If he means GH will be becoming like that, a giant puzzle, the Rubik’s Cube of the soap world– that could either be good or bad, depending on how much frustration you can handle.

    Mary SF, we are kindred spirits…i have some of the same thoughts…especially about Lost and Twin Peaks…i loved both shows…got lost watching the very complexed storylines on Lost and i had high hopes that Twin Peaks and its crimes and mysteries couldve been primetimes answer to daytimes Edge Of Night but T.P. was way too strange and confusing near the end!!! I bet some of those villians you mention will show up plus Faison…i figure if Jason returns the man who shot him must be returning too…not sure too about what Frank is saying as well but iits kind of renewed my interest…just hope this time its for the better!!!

    Yes, I totally agree with you. There are far too many villains already!!! And they’re not just realistic, passive aggressive villains one might run into at the shopping mall, they’re villains you’d run into in Gotham City.
    Enough of the over-the-top camp! It ceases to be interesting or even campy if that is all you’re serving up.

    Most likely Helena and Stavros. Not particularly enthused about either one, especially Stavros. He is just a complete maniac…his last appearance was so creepy, I was glad to see him put in the deep freeze. Although Helena is a superb villainess, I haven’t truly missed her. I really wanted to see Dr. O. assume her mantle as “Queen B.”….maybe alongside Victor???? (And speaking of villains, are we ever going to find out exactly what happened to Liesl’s beloved Cesar? Could Victor actually have him hidden away somewhere?)

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Me too Shay…more of our favorite Dr. Mutter and Victor…me thinks Faison will return, especially if Jason is coming back…Jason might remember Faison is the one who shot him and wants revenge…but if Jason doesnt remember and Faison does show up, Victor will program Jason to kill Faison…this is Victors way of eliminating the competition for Dr.Mutter’s heart even if Faison doesnt want her, and people will think Jason attempted to kill Faison because he wanted revenge for shooting him, unaware of Victor’s connection…maybe Faison is Levi’s DunkleDaddy?…with Donna Mills returning as Madalyn or whatever her name is maybe she and Victor will turn out to be Levi’s Dunkle Mutter and Futter…i know its been widely rumored Mac, Jerry or Fluke(like i thought were possible DunkleDaddies)…but there could be a bigger twist: if Nathan turns out to be Victors son, maybe Levi is too…and Dr.Mutter gave birth too him…Levi is Nathans faternal twin brother!…maybe a little farfetched but crazier things have happened on this show…lol…p.s. after my bad week which you are now aware of and why, was in wrong of me to use the word ‘crazy’ in my comments…lol…see, im not going to change…i still have my sense of humor…lol

    Reply

    Shay replied

    OMG, jimh! Perish that thought that our dear Mutter could have spawned that miscreant Levi!!!! To even consider that he could be part of a “Goofus and Gallant” birth duo with James/Nathan is even too far-fetched for Cartini! I have to admit I am flummoxed over whom could have produced the “Dunklemeister” unless he is really Bill Eckert’s son, Sly, but I should hope that if that is not the case, then we get a much more clever twist as to Levi’s parentage. If he is truly not an Aussie after all, that kind of puts to paid the notion that he is a Scorpio or Jacks offspring. And the fact he was so aware of that “Aztec jewelry” info makes me wonder if he isn’t related to someone from the glory days of “Frisco and Felicia?” (Peter, Colton Shore?)

    Dan replied

    Oh man, I agree with you that Robert Kelker-Kelly was so creepy as Stavros the last time. But creepy in a good way, I think, lol.

    When they did such a great job keeping his return a secret, and he showed up out of nowhere in that room with Luke and Laura, my jaw almost hit the floor. That look on his face with the maniacal smile was enough to send chills up and down your spine. He played it like a throwback villain from another era when villains were villains, and not characters that they tried to make cute or clever, just a crazy, sick in the head, bad dude. Would love to see him back!

    Same goes for the incomparable Anders Hove as Faison. Would love to find out what really happened to him, and see him raise more hell for Anna, Duke, and of course Robert, if they can get Tristan Rogers back. So many possibilities.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    @Dan…I could see the point of Stavros lurking about the last time around, because Laura was present, and they needed a gimmick to usher in “NuLulu”….it worked, but only because it didn’t last too long. However, I simply cannot understand Victor’s motive for wanting to revive this insane, loose cannon of the family, when there is a great assortment of other more worthy Cassadines from which to choose. First of all, Mikos, Tony and Alexandria Quartermaine were frozen way back in the Ice Princess days, so it wouldn’t be unreasonable to think they were kept in the cooler all these years. Victor had a direct link to these players, so I could see his sentimental attachment to them and wishing them to be back…of course, some of the original actors in this trio are deceased, but theirs are great roles that could be recast. Also, what about Stephan? I would love to see him return, as well. I even wonder why there is such a desire to reanimate Helena from Victor’s point of view….he is now the head honcho of the clan, and her return will put her back in charge, no???? Just saying….also, I hear you about Robert. This storyline simply doesn’t resonate as much as it could given his glaring absence.

    rebecca1 replied

    I agree Timmm. I love Stavros! He’s a particular brand of lunatic that always leads to some maniacal, crazy out there story…once again I say…bring it on! Could lead to great stories involving Nicolas, Spencer, Britt, Elizabeth, Lulu, Dante…on and on. Plus, Kelker-Kelly plays it so well. Just one smirk and ya know you’re in for a ride!

    I’d also love to see Stephan back. That would be a great setup of good vs evil brother…or maybe bad vs badder brother whichever way you look at it. I miss Stephan! Would much rather see these two back then Heather…she’s more a fun nut…if they can fit her in the budget then great. If they have to make a choice, I vote for the Casadines…

    Hey, what if Rosalee and Sabrina are related and become roomies involved in a love triangle with Morgan?…just kidding…lol

    Shay replied

    Oh yeah, because placing those two insufferable, irritating, inane (and most of all, completely unnecessary…) nurses together in a single space could only make things better! Definitely not one of your typically bright ideas, jimh….even if it is only in jest! Quite frankly, we could do without either one of those polar-opposite, low-rent she-meeees….neither is exactly a prize for the guys! (Whatever happened to debutantes, models and other assorted GG’s being the young female lead characters on soaps????) I’d even rather see Morgan reunite with Kiki as opposed to cavorting with Sappy or Grossalie!!!! Although on a related note, I was very gratified to see Silas FINALLY read the riot act to La Nina’s obnoxious sidekick……just wish he would have fired her, so she would have been banished from the GH canvas for good!

    rebecca1 replied

    Shay! I do declare…hahha…you should be rooting for the working woman, the non-model, picture perfect starlet…Sabrina is so not “low rent.” She’s an accomplished, very intelligent, compassionate woman…heart of gold. Not the definition of “low rent.” Grossalie? She’s just rude, obnoxious and I’m sure has an agenda. So, in a sense it would be interesting if they were related…cousins perhaps…the good witch vs the bad. I don’t see Sabrina with Morgan; but I can see her with Michael. Just as I can’t see Gross with Michael, but she’s tough enough for Morgan. Where would that leave little Kiki? I’m loyal to my little ex-Starr, so I want her on the show and in love!

    I’ve been wondering why don’t take any shite Silas has been taken Rosalie’s alll along…out of character. It’s also ridiculous that any nurse would come into someone’s home and speak to someone like that without getting the boot immediately. It’s been somewhat for comic relief…Nina and her nurse are both so strange that their entire dynamic, individually and together are simultaneously compelling and repugnant. Just strange…

    As I said in other posts, I think there’s more to her story…and I think Franco and Nina could be one kickin’ couple.

    Shay replied

    @rebecca1….As far as I can see, nearly ALL the of females populating GH are “working women”….no “ladies of leisure” there anymore, except for maybe, Kiki, Maxie (since her “Dunkledude” escapade commenced…) the faux-incapacitated Nina and retired Monica, so in essence, I do root for the majority of them, just not the two in question! (Besides which, I am not sure you can actually term what the uncouth Grossalie does as “work”…scheming lying, snarking, agitating, yes, but there’s precious little real “elbow grease” involved there…) What I was referring to, I guess, was a glaringly obvious lack of sophistication and social graces…..an obvious class distinction(?)….I simply cannot see mixing or mating those two chickadees with the elite population of Port Charles. We’ve already seen Sappy’s pathetic “wisteria woman” attempt at marrying into the upper echelon with Drake Jr., and that failed miserably. I simply cannot envision either one of this down-market duo being a welcome addition to the old-money Quartermaine fold or even nouveau-riche Corinthos clan…….I know, I know, you will consider this notion old-fashioned and snobbish, but hey, there are worse things in this world! That’s just the way I feel….

    Lets hope they can get the rights to the characters back so we can get rid of Kiki and bring back Starr and Todd….don’t care about Mc bain or john…never had my interest…

    Carly and Todd were hot together! Carly with Franco is like a mother figure always taking care of him because he can’t take care of himself! UGH…Such a terrific actor being relegated to such a failure of a character….

    Love me some Todd. The Franco thing was a terrible idea for the awesome RH!

    Christy replied

    not sure that would ever happen… even after all these lawsuits with Prospect Park are over and done with…

    They just need more in-depth story lines for Franco like they did when Carly was kidnapped.

    Hate that Carly slept with Sonny, which was a total set up of Sonny’s… he wants an excuse to kill Franco to keep him completely silent about who Sonny and Ava killed (separately). I hope he’s got letters to Diane, Anna, Michael and Kiki in case of any accident he may be involved in… “Dear anna, ava was the sniper who tried to kill me and shot olivia instead. AJ stands for Ava jerome and she murdered connie. Ava was in her penthouse with Sonny, when Sonny shot AJ Q. Sonny & Carly have audio recordings of the whole thing. Sonny threatened to kill me if I told anyone…” that sort of thing.

    wouldn’t that be fun to watch….. and just have it be an accident that Franco will recover from, not death, because I don’t care who Roger is playing, he must stay! :-D

    I have been a GH fan for decades and I think Ron & Frank have done an incredible job of bringing ratings up and saving the show. I realize there are many fan factions to please. But do we really need MORE characters on the show – villains or not? The cast is SO heavy already. We see a story and then it disappears for weeks at a time. The show is well written and humorous, but it’s so hard to come back day after day and not have the continuity that one would expect. What happened with Lucy/Scotty/ Bobbie/ Kevin? Where is Duke? What happened to Robin after Victor’s goons took her away? Didn’t she get to go home? Can someone explain why Britt is a doctor and can’t afford a place to live? Where are Max & Diane? Are they together or not? Yes, I am sure it will be interesting to see Helena, Stravos, Not Luke (Jerry?) , Victor, and whomever else back, but what characters will have to be sacrificed for their return? DAYS has done a great job of getting their ratings up but they have kept to a core cast of characters while just introducing a few new characters who are already tied to the canvas. It’s not perfect but at least I am not wondering when I will see an old favorite again and what happened to them.

    I am looking forward to the villains. I am very disappointed that the whole East coast isn’t moving back to 3:00. Atlanta is staying at 2:00 while NY is moving to 3:00. That means I will lose lots of my Twitter pals since we will be watching at different times. GH should have always been at 3:00. The whole East Coast changed to 2:00 before, now it should all change back to 3:00. Haven’t it only change in some markets across the country is stupid and makes no sense at all.

    To “celebrate the move” on 8 stations? Talk about Valentini trying to spin a move that shows ABC has lost interest in his show.

    Ben Sherwood is coming and he’s not impressed. No Chew lead in. No continuity and consistency across time zones. ABC puts a premium on cross promotion, lead ins and social media. They’re preparing GH for the scrap heap and it is deserved. The writing, the quality of the entire show has just reached a point of total amateur hour.

    They’ve had two and a half years to really build some momentum and grow a significant audience with the 50th anniversary hype, Nurses Balls, Vet returns and new castings. And all they’ve done is increase viewership by 15-20% at best in total viewers from Guza and Wolf. In 18-49, Wolf averaged 576,000 viewers in that demo the last six weeks of his reign, a show described as so bad that ABC was ready to cancel it. In the past six weeks, GH has averaged 578,000 viewers in the 18-49 demo. The same as Wolf.

    This show is in trouble. Valentini can bring back as many villains as he wants, he can recast Jason, he can try and make Howarth and Stafford a supercouple. He can try all he wants. If you don’t have talented writers and a talented production team, it isn’t going to matter. They had their shot, regardless of the spin of ABC publicity, they’ve blown it, and ABC now messing with the show’s time slot in just their 8 owned markets may be the beginning of the end.

    The show is not in trouble GH50. If you kept up with the ratings, GH has soared in recapturing it’s audience by huge numbers. It’s also the #1 soap in the key 18 to 34 year old female demos. Your comments are nonsense.

    GH50 replied

    @mellowYELLOW, soared? Did you miss the part of my “nonsense” comments that pointed out that the GH total audience is only up 15-20% from the time under Guza and Wolf, when the show was on the chopping block? Did you miss the part that pointed out that the current numbers in 18-49 are identical to the last six weeks of Wolf?

    Number one in 18-34? Y&R has regained its 18-34 audience and beat GH two of the last three weeks. GH is also down in 18-34, under 200,000 viewers where it had been. ABC isn’t keeping GH on the air with its budget for 175,000 viewers 18-34 or 200,000 for that matter.

    You make some valid points but I have to disagree with the production values. The “look” of the show is fine; its the erratic and campy writing that loses me. When this show finally does bite the dust i will wager that these actors will have a heck of a time finding a job. What was Michelle Stafford thinking?

    As someone who has “tuned-in” Since April 1, 1963; I have seen so, so many actors, writers, producers, etc., etc., come and go. That being said; the show today, is the best produced, acted, written GH, since the “Gloria” days of the late seventies. Bringing on FV and RC was genius and I for one, have only been disappointed once since they came aboard. That was this past week with the crap about the three ways they were discussing. And that is totally generational. At my age, REALLY?!?!?!? Any actor that is lucky enough to some to GH now…congratulations. I, for one, like the idea, that an actor is really busy on screen for a week or two, then they get a mini-vacation. It gets interesting. ANYONE, if honest, would have to admit that the Sonny/Carly; Jason/Sam show would get old. My gosh, I am a HUGE Tony Geary fan, and even the Luke/Laura show got old. It is interesting all the time, the stories are great AND some of the lines that come out of their mouths, re: when Britt comments about “Morgan, being a looker” are hilarious. And the idea of putting Frisco and Nina together…you cannot get much better than that. Played by two of the best actors playing CRAZY EVER on soaps, bar none. But mostly, I, for one, would turn the channel if I did not enjoy what was on the screen. And obviously, FV and RC know what they are doing….the rating are on the increase not decrease.

    I too find some of the writing a problem…for example why is Felicia and Lucy taking shooting victim Mac(without even a wheelchair) to the tenth floor of the hospital…no first floor emergency room?…and evertime someone goes up there no matter the health scare whether its a heart attack or gunshot wound the victim is treated by whatever type of specialist is on duty who are never in their office and just happens to be there at the nurses station most of the time…a hospital with no waiting, without an emergency room, where you can see any type of doctor who dont specializes in your ailment but can still diagnose you and treat you…laughable!!!

    Only….youre forgetting one thing….Jax isnt a leering 65 year old murdering psychopath. I wouldnt put it past Ron to retcon it that way…he has destroyed just about every other legacy character on the show…however…the clues have been laid in….Fluke hates Tracy for what she did to his sister. That is Bill Eckert. Unless Ron creates more made up history that no one cares about (Nina, Silas, etc etc etc) then no….its not Jax.

    Johnny replied

    What I want to know…whats with the shootings that have absolutely no impact or long term effect on story?? In the past year alone…AJ…Connie…Olivia…Max…Lucas…Mac…i know im forgetting someone. Even under the Phelps Guza reign of terror we never had that many pointless shootings! Lucas got shot…then was not seen on air for weeks or months…then suddenly he is up and it talking about gay threesomes. I see being shot really kade him examine his life priorities. Now Mac….we wont see him on screen for 3 weeks until he has a band aid on and is recuperating. And when…oh when…did Felicia become such a brain dead dingbat? And why does she over enunciate so much now? I realize it must be hard for her to say her lines as written….theyre so absurd and ridiculous. But to my point….what purpose did any of these shootings serve other than to glorify violence and prop mobsters and murderers??? Olivia got shot in a botched attempt by Carly to kill Franco. A year later Carly is canoodling like a dim witted 16 year old high school girl with the man she tried to murder. You know…there is an easy Iway to explain all of this…if Carly, Olivia, Alexis, and Sam just went out for drinks…and talked about how they love murderers. I can hear Carly saying “I loved Jason. He killed countless people, but he was so hot and nice. And I loved Sonny and he killed lots of people too. But now…now girls…Im with a serial killer and its hot!” Then I could hear some Olivia…”You know…I kept my son away from his father because i thought he was a dementes mobster and murderer…but now 30 years later…as long as I can get that greasy thug in the sack…Im good to go!” Then Alexis…”Girls…I like sociopathic murderers because ai spend half my day on the right side of the law…but when I lay down at night…I just want a murderer to lay beside me and make me feel safe! ” Then Sam would juat get misty eyed and whimper “I miss my murderer Jason.” At least if that kind of a scene was played out…we would have some insight into the psyches of these messed up mob molls who love murderers!!!

    Shh, GH50, what are you thinking throwing actual facts and figures out? LOL Don’t you realize it’s not allowed to be truly pragmatic and reasonable when discussing Cartini’s GH? Why would people care that GH can’t even pull in the ratings numbers with only four shows airing, that it once did when it was one of ten shows on the air? It doesn’t seem to register that GH’s numbers in the 18-49 age demo is barely one fifth of what it was during most of 2000-2010. Or that 175,000 in the 18-34 age group isn’t worth the advertisers time or money. The ones ignoring your numbers, or busy with nay saying your facts, are the ones who will say it’s the fans’ fault when the show is cancelled, not Cartini’s fault for failing to produce a show worth watching.

    I agree GH50. And villains are not interesting if they are in majority–if they have no hero to play against. Without sunlight there is no shade, without good guys, there are no villains.
    This show has become so boring with it’s over-the-top camp, that it makes Perry Como Comes Alive Album look exciting by comparison.

    GH is in no danger of being canceled anytime soon. I know some here would love to see that happen, but seriously, enough with the doomsday “sky is falling” scenarios already. Michael Fairman just said in an article on this site last week that the show is on good footing with ABC, and Michael is as tuned into the happenings of the soap industry as anyone. Michael Logan from TV Guide said something similar in an article on the GH timeslot change.

    These are well respected journalists that cover soaps for a living, and there’s been no indication or hint whatsoever from anyone in the know that the show is in trouble. That’s good enough for me.

    I commented below and that’s why I think this change has taken place. I’m sure of it.

    GH50 replied

    Dan- first of all, you’re wrong about people wanting GH to be cancelled just because they talk about the reality that exists.

    Second, You don’t need to drag Michael Fairman or Michael Logan into this as a way to suggest that I or anyone else is discrediting their reporting.

    GH isn’t in danger of being cancelled soon and maybe not at all because they still have an opportunity to improve the show and build up some real numbers. But what is the definition of soon anyway. GH was renewed through 2015. That’s almost a year and a half from now and it will make it through its renewal. So nothing either Michael has said is false.

    But if you think that ABC. like any network, isn’t looking for more profitable alternatives to current programming, you’re wrong. And if they find something that they think will work, that can deliver a decent audience and costs less to produce, they will do it. They already have tried it, notice OLTL and AMC are no longer on the air. They hit with one, The Chew and missed with The Revolution and Katie, but it doesn’t mean they’ve given up. ABC has not all of a sudden developed a soft spot for soaps. It’s a business and General Hospital isn’t killing it in the ratings as much as you or any other cheerleader may wish.

    The fact that the GH renewal is only through 2015 should be an obvious sign. Each of the three other remaining soaps received more long term renewals. You don’t think that is indicative of the situation? That in January 2014 ABC renewed GH only through 2015. Should that really leave anyone brimming with confidence at how dedicated ABC is to keeping it on the air. And at the time the renewal came, GH was doing better in the ratings than it did in the subsequent Spring months and what it is doing currently..

    No one said anything about doomsday or the sky is falling, and GH may very well keep going for a while. But you’d have to have your head buried in the sand not to recognize the reality that GH’s future past 2015 is not guaranteed. The ratings aren’t that great and shifting its time period in only a few markets, changing the lead in, disrupting the continuity that it has across time zones and the social media aspect, should raise questions about how hard ABC is working to make sure it succeeds.

    In Los Angeles GH airs alongside Days at 1:00 pm…was not happy with the time change when the soaps dropped to 4 and two of the four were competing for viewers. It makes a lot of sense as GH will pick up a lot of viewers that were without the benefit of a dvr(luckily i have the benefit) but now west coast will be able to not only watch both shows but also with an hour break in between. I get it. They’ll benefit and ABC is aware of that i’m quite sure. You don’t mess with a soap that’s gaining viewers and bump it around to drop it. They took the larger markets and will reap the benefits and unwittingly so will Days.

    Reply

    GH50 replied

    That is an explanation for LA and SF, it doesn’t explain New York and Philadelphia moving to 3pm, losing the CHEW lead in and airing an hour later than other east coast markets. It doesn;t explain Chicago that now also loses the Chew lead in and GH did not face another soap at 1pm in Chicago.

    The problem is that ABC moved GH in every single one of its owned markets. That includes Raleigh which is not a larger market.

    if you make a case for some markets, like LA and San Fran, not competing against another soap and they still have a comparable lead in with Rachel Ray, it still doesn’t explain making a change in all 8 markets where the dynamics are so different.

    And GH isn’t really “gaining” viewers. It has gained and lost viewers in the past
    2 1/2 years and is basically stagnant in the range of j2.8 million viewers and the demos are not huge. ABC has watched the show go through ups and downs, they see where it is, and there is no indication that in it’s current form, it has the ability to make big gains.

    The potential for growth in LA and SF isn’t that big. GH does maybe 50,000 viewers in SF, usually under, and Days does half that in the 25,000 range. There isn’t an opportunity for significant gains there, In LA, GH does maybe 85,000-90,000 viewers. Days about the same. How many Days viewers are there really to come over? Not that many. offset that with the potential to lose viewers in NY, a market that can average 250,000 viewers and Philadelphia now moves to 3p where it is now up against shows like Ellen and Dr.oz, who have larger audiences than GH’s current competition at 2p in that market.

    The argument for the west coast isn’t a great one given the numbers and potential for growth and all the other markets have no good, consistent explanation.

    Someone has to be the fake Luke imposter, so it is likely either Faison or Jerry Jacks. Stavros is a bit silly but I’ll accept any story to bring back Constance Towers as Helena. Sorry, but I miss my crazy Heather Webber – and Robin Mattson, who has been on soaps as long as Heather, even though she joined as Heather #3 in 1980; I just wish they’d write the character seriously again and not as silly comic relief and a lunatic without motivation or reason because Heather has been part of Port Charles and GH history since 1976 (when Robin Mattson played her first soap role as Hope Bauer #5 of 7 on Guiding Light for a year), almost 4 decades, and I want to see Dr. Steven Lars Webber, her other son (besides Franco) return, hopefully played again by Steve Reeves, who was also Ryan on Y&R years ago. FYI: Superstar Cher’s real life sister Georganne LaPiere played Heather #1 from 1976-1977 and Mary O’ Brien was Heather #2 from 1977-1979. Unfortunately, I am cynical about soap writers ability to write a villain without going over the line like they did with Heather the day she started murdering people for nothing, became obsessed with Luke out of nowhere and hating people like Sam for not delivering a letter to her son and wanting to destroy her over something so trivial -in the past her sole motivation was getting the son she sold on the black market back and holding onto her husband, Dr. Jeff Webber (Richard Dean Anderson), the only child of original GH character Dr. Steve Hardy (the late great John Beradino)! Seems like soap writers usually write villains “into a corner”, making them unrredeemable where they either need to die, be believed dead, go to jail or a mental asylum like the one Heather comes and goes from so easily….In my opinion, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) on Y&R and B&B was one of soap’s greatest female villains but the writing destroyed her, having her come back with plastic surgery with Phyllis’s (Michele Stafford-now Nina Clay on GH) face and then being killed. If either CBS soap was smart, they’d re-write that terrible forgettable history and bring the “real” Sheila back!

Mac has never had any biological children of his own, and this would be a great story. Also, I’d love to see Sabrina and Kevin get to know each other, just to give Lucy screaming fits. Most of all, someone PLEASE give Monica a love interest? She hasn’t had a lover (or a storyline) since Alan was killed off. Killing off A.J. was a huge mistake- what if he had an illegitimate child out there? Maybe Nikki Langton was pregnant when she jilted him at the altar, and she later had his child. Also, remember Lydia Karenin, the girl A.J. ran off to Europe with when he embezzled the ELQ funds? Maybe she had his baby. The possibilities are endless…

    Why would any producer in his right mind want to “challenge the audience’s ability to accept, understand, and be entertained by the show?” How is such a strategy going to engage, or build, the show’s audience?

    As for bringing in more villains this fall, under the current regime Port Charles is already overpopulated with evildoers (Nina, Ava, Liesl, Britt, Fluke, etc.) and idiots (Tracy, Michael, Morgan, Nathan, etc.). Would it be too much to ask for the “creative team” (and I use that term loosely!) to showcase strong, smart characters who the audience can relate to and root for? Yes, evidently it would.

    Roger Howarth : he needs an edge… there’s no devious, there’s no drive…. there’s no triggering ALL HIS being… and he’s got all that…. a simmering guarded mystique edge that throws you in over and with

    Livid : that, Michael, runs ELQ… and yes it’s story dictated… Tracy will get ELQ back… after she’s dumbed down some more. He fired Tracy again!

    it’s pretty clear that GH is grooming the dullest pairing ( Michael and Kiki ) for… ??? hummm Port Charles most heralded coupling…. LOL loss for words.. but… it’s not needed : snore

    ———-

    please, keep Jordan hair straight…. at last, finally… she’s sexier than ever… thanks to that bedroom scene with Sean

    ———-

    we may not get to see that much of Ava, any more… she’s in the top tier of acting troupe on the canvas… let that be understood…..
    but.. she was radiant…. lovely…. pant…. w/Kiki… as they shared Ava birthday… can I say… finally..a familial bonding…

    Tears…. Ava felt the baby moving…. TEARS…. and it was a moving mother/daughter moment…. TEARS

    if Kiki is to be ALL OVER the place…. at least show some signs of maturity…. with her mother… it was growth… because she’s still uninteresting w/Michael

    Wally Kurth’ Ned is so sexy…. for him to help flesh out he Quartermaines… is almost all they need… but I digress….. as stated… so affable to Skye’s tumultuous … The Q’s would be back smolder triumphant… conquer

    For starters if they bring back the CASSADINE FAMILY. They have to bring back Laura, to protect Lulu from them since the we have, Fluke on Gh and there’s no one if Nicolas is leaving the show for 4 months. To protect lulu except for Dante, and we know all know what happend the last time. When she got kidnapped by starvos. And Starvos clocked him over the head. And by that they will keep up the tradition alive of the Cassadine and Spencer fued for years. Which made the show what it is today. And the VILLIANS I really wanna watch again the most: 1.) THE CASSADINE FAMILY- the most of all.
    2.) Jerry Jacks- and bring back Jax to handle his brother. 3,) “AND THE QUEEN OF THE CASSADINE FAMILY”- HELENA.

    I love when they bring back past characters. Would love to see Mikkos Cassadine return (John Colicos passed away but a new actor could take on the roles). Fluke has to be Damian Smith (who appeared to have died but no one stays dead on soaps). It would make sense and bring Luke’s first storyline full circle as Luke brought down Damian’s dad Frank Smith the mob boss in the early 80s. But hopefully we’ll find out soon…

    Tired of these teases and his sickening ideas of returns. Stavros the toothy cartoon is not a great character.

    Frankly villians who are this one note are not needed at all nor are some of his OLTL non characters.

    Characters with a romantic side, shades of grey good and bad as Stefan were needed and are never brought back nor used properly. As for Nick sorry as a Cassadine he is quite dull. The true prince story should have been the expose of Stefan as the one son of Mikkos with Stavros as Helena’s illegitimate being passed off as such. There lies the complexity of a grand story where both Stefan and NIk learn the truth. Nik not the prince at all, Stefan the true heir and yet both having lead the wrong lives and having been deceived. Instead we get poor cartoons. Sadly the producers today are destroying the soaps
