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.

  • Tired of Lulu & Elizabeth - Jason Needs His Memory

    I am so tired of GH. I have been watching since I was child with my Mother. The only reason I continue to watch is because of Sonny and Carly.

    I am giving GH 1 week to get its act together about Jason's memory, Lulu whining for being a stupid wife and not see her part in the issues with Dante. Also, Elizabeth has annoyed me. She is so needy. Please write her a male character specific for her. Who is needy. Please let Jason find out who Elizabeth really is and make Jason leave Elizabeth.

    In fact, bring the OLD JASON BACK!!!!!! Pay him whatever he needs to live and stay in LA and raise his family. Sonny needs his right hand man back.

    I am serious, 1 week to fix these crappy story lines or I'm done watching GH.moreless
  • bad writers now

    I'm so sick and tired of the writers of General Hospital. I'm so tired of Liz, I've gotten to the point where I haven't watched the show in two weeks because the sight of Liz makes me physically sick. I will not spend another second watching all of this horrible stuff happening to Sam while Liz is getting all of the good. I'm so tired of Liz being seen as a saint. It makes me throw up a little every time I think of where the writers are going with the show. I really cant stand Valerie either, she is an ugly, pig faced, awful person. No one in their right mind would pick her over Lulu. I will not watch another episode until I get a little hope that things will turn out okay for Sam and Jason as well as Lulu and Dante.moreless
  • The worst reveal ever

    The reveal was the most anti-climactic, lack luster reveal in daytime history. This new Jason was a very poor choice. Even with his new personality, implies he should at least have a personality. He's dry toast.

    I can't stomach Elizabeth's sappy sweetness and someone give her a drink of water. Listening to sticky cotten mouth deliver lines, is like nails on a chalk board.

    Patrick and Samantha, never bought it. No chemistry at all.

    Let me reiterate, the new Jason sucks in this role. He's not the right actor for it.

    Drive him and Elizabeth off a cliff. And have a NEW new Jason show up and it be a power house show again. I've been watching for 30 yrs. its the only Soap I watch. it's turning into a snooze.moreless
  • Not true to reality

    I am getting tired of Elizabeth getting away with so much under handed stuff. It's time she be exposed for the sneeky, skank, that she is. She needs to get a beat down from Sam or Carley for her deceit in the Jason affair. You want us to identify and connect with this show, we try to make it real, however in reality she would get her ass whipped.

  • Not happy

    Valerie- she is gorgeous and she has been made out to be the bad guy from the door making fans dislike her without giving her a chance. I don't like that.

    Jason- if you're going to write about how Sam can't get Jason out of her head- you recast Jason and take a year to reveal him- Why would you not reunite them and why would you not write about him getting his memories back? You're making the fans mad and ratings will go down if you don't reunite them soon. Not 6 months to a year from now but this year!

    The writers need to take the time and visit some of the gh fan pages on Facebook. If there is not a Jason and Sam reunion, fans are going to leave. Simple because it makes no sense to bring him back and make us wait a year for you to keep him with the Jake personality that's attached to Liz.
