28 November 23rd, 2013 Jimmy Fallon Has Fun With GH Milking Character Reactions During Baby Connie Custody Hearing!

Courtesy/ABC

In a hilarious few minutes of Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue on last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host began a comedy bit by saying how upset he was over the online cancellation of All My Children the other week, and so he is now looking for a new soap opera to watch, but also how much he loves his General Hospital! Fallon then says that even on GH, they milk people’s reaction to big news and then launches into a clip from baby Connie’s custody hearing when Maxie is on the stand and Alexis brings up that she was a murderer!

And what ensued was the facial expressions and reactions, one after the other, of the characters in the courtroom without speaking, with the help of some clever editing!  Watch the reactions of Port Charles citizens: Lulu, Alexis, Maxie, Felicia, Spinelli and more! Three of our favorites were Franco and Carly, and Dante!

This was a very fun way for a late night show to pay homage to the soaps, and GH, and to take a look at one of the staples of soapdom  … those lingering prolonged looks and reaction shots!  Watch the Jimmy Fallon monologue that contains the GH courtroom custody drama after the jump at about 1:19 minutes into it! And then let us know, whose reaction gave you the best chuckle?

    Funny… but still makes me wonder, if so many people are saying they are fans of the soaps, why is ABC not listening?

    Missed opportunity… I would have made it even longer. We had the Maxie/Lulu court case one episode, and the AJ/Connie murder case the day after. They could have used courtroom staring from AJ, Monica, Michael, Kiki, Liz (who also testified against Maxie earlier, and came back for the AJ trial to testify against him), Diane appeared at both trials, Sonny appeared at both, Scott Baldwin…. Plenty of opportunity to stretch it out!

    Can’t stand Jimmy Fallon and the bit wasn’t all that funny.
    The saxophone was soooo lame and he laughs way too much at his own “jokes,” if you can call them that. I mean, Leno is lame too, but this guy will take the Tonight show off the air for good once he’s in charge.
