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.

  • ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!

    2.5
    The story line on General Hospital has gotten absolutely ridiculous. It is so farfetched from the reality of normal life that it is of NO interest to people like myself who have been followers of the series for more than 30 years since childhood.



    How many times are they going to bring back Helena Cassadine and the rest of her over-the-top family? ENOUGH ALREADY!



    Bobbi Spencer's plastic surgery makes her look SO UGLY and ARTIFICIAL that I can't stand to even look at the television when she is on the screen. ENOUGH ALREADY!



    Carly and her POTBELLIED self, wearing clothes that are obviously too young for her current middle-aged figure. ENOUGH ALREADY!



    Epiphany Johnson, with her DISGUSTING fat loud-mouthed self, reprehensibly reinforces EVERY Aunt Jemima stereotype of 50 YEARS ago!!! ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!





    ALL OF THE CURRENT STORY LINES ARE TAKING FOREVER TO GET TO THE POINT and REACH RESOLUTION. They DRAG-OUT the unfolding of this MESS of BORING, RIDICULOUS plots & subplots for SO LONG without FINALLY resolving Eva Jerome & her insanity, Jason's return, Robin and her pitifully spineless insanity, the truth of Allen Junior's murder.



    It's gotten SO BAD that I now TIVO the show and when watching it, in addition to fast-forwarding past the DELUGE of commercials I ALSO fast-forward past of MOST of the daily episode as well. In that manner I view the entire daily show in 15 minutes each day, only looking with one question in mind----IS General Hospital GOING TO FINALLY GET PAST THIS AWFUL PLOT STORY LINE AND GET TO A BETTER ONE TODAY, OR AT LEAST GET TO THE POINT OF RESOLVING IT??



    It would be FAR BETTER for the writers to do fewer simultaneous story lines and GET TO THE POINT regarding their unfolding, than to do a plethora of story lines that then TAKE FOREVER to GET TO THE POINT!



    The producers of General Hospital REALLY need to do something, because the current series of shows is AWFUL!!!!!!!!!

    Please solve or bring to an end some of the situations that has been piling up for months on end. In doing so this it will allow you to create new problems with more energy and not be so boring. Also the women in the wheel chair (example) is all over the place, and in everyone's am board with her already.

    Bring her secret to a quick end and let her start on some other Me? Keep it moving.

    Writers please hire me, because I can always tell what is gonna happen next! We are getting bored with the same problems never being solved (NEVER). We already now that Jason is the one that was hit by the car etc, bring an ending to one of the situations instead of adding on a never ending problem over and over, it is getting somoreless
  • The Good Ole Days

    9.0
    What happen to GH begin about love,lies & secrets. Give me the old GH when everyone one was looking for love. Bring back the writers that wrote stories like Luke & Laura, Sonny & Brenda, Alan & Monica, Edward & Lila, Jason & Robin. LOVE that's what GH representative to since I was 12. I'm 43 now & I just don't watch GH anymore. I watch the old classic's on You Tube! Love the oldies!moreless
  • Sickening

    1.0
    3ways are not appropriate on daytime television no matter who wants one. I have watched GH since 1979 and I am heart brokenly sad to say that I won't be watching anymore. At 2pm in the afternoon my grandson asked what was a 3way game? Sick. Absolutely sickening. I under4stand the writers being angry with all of us in the beginning with some kissing. But then to KNOW that the viewers were turn around like small children trying to "one-up" us by throwing in the disgusting slobbery tongue and showing love scenes. YUK I am taking all actresses and actors off of my twitter as well as boycott the show. I hold ABC 100 % responsible for all of this.moreless
  • nina storyline

    1.0
    Why does she get so much air time? She must be cheap? I have watched GH. For 40 years but I think I have finally seen the end. Watching Nina is like watching Nina is like watching nails on a chalk board. The story line is ridiculous. What happen to silese he use to be a bastered? Now he's a milk the stories are crazy.. partnering the J eromes and Sonny to gang up against the Luke lookalike now thats a story.moreless
