23 March 29th, 2013 MONDAY: Anthony Geary To Appear On The View To Kick-Off General Hospital’s 50th!


Daytime legend and seven-time Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer) will be the very special guest on this Monday’s episode of The View at 11AMEST on ABC.  Monday is the actual date of the 50th anniversary of the iconic ABC daytime drama, having debuted on April 1, 1963!

Geary is expected to discuss his career portraying the wonderfully unpredictable Luke Spencer since 1978, and what to expect all this week on General Hospital in celebration of the show’s Golden Anniversary.

Honoring 50 historic years on ABC, General Hospital is the longest running scripted drama currently in production and the third longest-running drama in American television history. To mark the show’s Golden Anniversary, General Hospital reprises the immensely popular Nurses’ Ball, a fictional charity event complete with musical performances from the illustrious citizens of Port Charles dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness.

OK GH fans, what has been your favorite amount of Luke Spencer’s and performance of Anthony Geary over the decades he has been on the show? Weigh-in!

    Cate replied

    It is never too late. AMC & OLTL are gone, yes. GH needs viewer support. Great that it is getting promotion.


    jim replied

    I agree

    Juliette replied

    Yea, Jim. It seems like quite a few “Llanview” or character named posters are hoping for the cancellation of GH. It is as if they don’t want it on the air because theirs isn’t. Sad. I don’t begrudge them their show. Shame they don’t have respect for ours.

    Llanviewer717 replied

    Agree whole heartedly. I hope GH fans don’t feel they are out of the woods. I would not be surprised if GH was gone by the end of the year.


    jim replied

    Are you wishing for it to be cancelled so you can say say u was right? The network already renewed it til 2014 so it wont be off this year. And if it does get cancelled it wont be the end of the world for me. I just enjoy it while its still here and i enjoy everything else i like while im still here.

    tarlyfan replied

    @llanview717. you should spend more time worry about your OLTL2. Just because it got resurrected doesn’t mean it won’t die again.

    Llanviewer717 replied

    Not at all. I do not wish GH to be cancelled. I have great respect for the cast and crew and commend them for soldiering on over the last few years. I don’t have faith the network.

    GH is being promoted highly.. And that is a good thing for GH..

    All the people complaining and bitchin that ABC was not promoting GH, well, all these talk shows appearances that the cast have been on talking of GH, and there have been many, all the interviews, all the soap magazines in our grocery check-out lanes, is all promotion .. lol .. The Nurses Ball is near a household name !! LOL :)

    GH has a future!! .. HALLELUJAH !!!


  7. heidi says:

    I don’t watch the View. I will watch clips of his visit if I can. I am happy that ABC is promoting GH and recognizing Tony’s years of contribution to GH’s success!!! He is an awesome talent and we are lucky to have him on GH!!! I love GH and want it to have 50 more years!!! Congratulations Tony for getting the chance to review your years on the best soap!!!


  8. tarlyfan says:

    I love Luke too. Don’t watch the view but I surely will tune in to watch this time for Tony.


  9. Dottie says:

    I love GH . I have 3 favorites of this show. Luke, Laura, & Jason. I really hated to see Steve Burton go!! I keep hoping they will hire another actor to play Jason Morgan. Here he was suppose to be the tough mob hitman for Sonny, so how could the toughest hitman die from 1 shot (not even in the heart), and a roll into the harbour? Jason was too tough to die from that so bring another actor in to play that character. Back to Luke, his parts with Laura & them being on the run were my most favorite parts out of the whole 50 years.


  10. Bill says:

    Technically speaking, “General Hospital” is only the SECOND longest running scripted drama, or the longest running AMERICAN scripted drama. “Coronation Street” holds the global record, having begun in 1960. GH has them, however in episodes!


  11. ethel says:

    i have loved the character of luke since he stepped foot in port charles – i was so hoping they would have more than one cast member on to celebrate the 50th anniversary like cbs did for y&r’s 40th………………………………


  12. Loves GH says:

    Fav Luke Spencer moment was when he typed, ” Ice Princess” on computer to unlock weather machine and he twirled all the way around in the air. Thanks for 50 GH!!!


  13. Sue says:

    I love all Tony’s scenes with his acting soulmate,
    Genie Francis. They are magic together!


  14. Nancy says:

    Anything where Luke’s love for Laura is apparent – I love when he’s passionate, funny, jealous, protective, even angry. He has always been able to show a whole range of emotion when he (Tony) works with Genie. Their magic is unsurpassed.


  15. Denise says:

    Love all of you on GH but me getting older and love some of the oldies who are still going strong. I am 50 yrs old now and have watched GH all my life. I wish all of you best of luck and thanks for all the good times GH has given me,……(could have left Katie C off the show though) Roll Tide lol
