General Hospital

Show Summary

General Hospital, the multi Emmy Award-Winning drama series hailed by critics as the 'The Greatest Soap Opera of All Time', will celebrate 50 years of broadcasting in 2013. The tradition of passion, intrigue, and adventure takes place in the fictional town of Port Charles, set in upstate New York. The glamour and excitement of those who have come to find their destinies in this familiar seaport town intertwine with the lives, loves, and fortunes of beloved, well-known faces. And, as always, love and danger continue to abound whether on the docks, in the ER, at brownstones, or trespassing on Quartermaine property with contemporary story lines and unforgettable characters. In the past several years, General Hospital has been praised by national organizations for elevating the public awareness of several important social issues. It has received three SHINE awards for its continued contribution to the awareness of sexual responsibility. The Ryan White Foundation presented its 1996 Ryan's Angels Award to "General Hospital" for the moving and thorough examination of HIV/AIDS through the characters of Robin, Stone, and the Nurses' Ball. The show was further honored by the American Red Cross for its HIV/AIDS-related storylines. Several other prestigious awards have been bestowed upon "General Hospital" for confronting sexual child abuse, organ donation, and other social issues as well. The program inspired Port Charles, the spin-off series that premiered in June 1997, and ended October 2003. In 2007 the 3rd spin-off General Hospital: Night Shift premiered which revolves around the interns and the doctors working the night shift at the hospital and ended October 2008. GH has had lots of movie and tv stars (and those in the making) over the years such as Demi Moore, Jack Wagner, Vanessa Marcil, Elizabeth Taylor, Ricky Martin, Rick Springfield, John Stamos, among others, as well as other soap opera stars. General Hospital is the longest-running dramatic serial on the ABC Network, and is the longest-running daytime drama produced on the West Coast. In May of 2000, General Hospital made Daytime Emmy history as the only Daytime drama to ever receive the prestigious Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama series a record seven times, marking the show's fifth win in six years (1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2000). It had also garnered the Emmy Award as Outstanding Daytime Drama Series in 1980-81 and 1983-84. In the 40th Anniversary Special Edition of TV Guide, General Hospital was hailed as the "All-Time Best Daytime Soap." General Hospital was created by Frank and Doris Hursley. General Hospital currently airs Monday-Friday (2:00-3:00 p.m., ET; & 1:00-2:00 p.m., PT) on the ABC Television Network. GH also reruns current episodes at 10pm, 3am, and 10am-as well as a weekend marathon on SOAPnet, the 24 hour Soap Opera Network.

  • Really?!?!

    Ava must die, Kiki needs to be replaced, Jason needs discovering, and Morgan needs help (aka medication). Rick will more than likely be around for a while but thankfully Madeline will now go away (and hopefully never return). I really feel that the new writers will take the storylines in a different direction, and maybe one that will not insult their audiences intelligence with ridiculous and unbelieveable storylines.
  • Ava,, Jason !!!!

    I find it so ridiculous that in only a few months Ava's identity was revealed BUT it's been years && Jason still doesn't know who he is. I love General Hospital i've watched it for over 15 years and i'm so upset with these new plots !! The only diff with Jason is his face right ?? So why can't his family/friends recognize his eyes, his voice, his tattoos, his body built, Patrick did surgrey twice on him, he can't recall his own work !! The way the show is dragging Jason's character is RIDICULOUS !!!! let his identity come out already !!!!moreless
  • Donna mills

    Please take donna mills off the show . She is eerie looking . Her eyeballs look like they are going to pop out of her head. I fast forward past her part. Can't stand to see those wild eyes.
  • Kiki---no more

    The new actress that plays Kiki is really awful. she needs acting lessons. I actually fast forward some of the story line with her in it. The writers also need to rethink what they are having the character think. Blame Franco, not blame Franco. Also this Ava and Morgan thing. Ava need to go. Kill Silas off, finally, he has played 3 different characters. He was better than Ava. . Let Nina and Franco have some happiness. Rick Lansing he needs to go away again. I have grown up on GH, I have watched also since I was a tween. I am 61, this was my mothers favorite show.moreless
  • Kill Ava and Kiki

    So you got rid of John Mcbain made Todd manning completely disappear and brought in a new Kiki who couldn't shed a tear if her life depended on it. Who the hell is writing this crap? I have watched off an on since I was 14 and I'm 60. You allowed Starr manning to change characters and become Kiki then leave and brought in someone who sucks! For awhile I so missed OLTL but am watching the young and restless where the writing makes a little more sense. No more Good guys! What the hell the best good guy is Sonny and he just murdered someone. you have completely changed the characters of lets count them 1. Nikolas 2. Michael. 3. Morgan. 4. Elizabeth. 5. Dante.6. Starr or Kiki And Franco who was Todd is just sad. I guess I'll start watching another soapmoreless
