Well, get ready because ABC is airing a primetime event called General Hospital: 60 Years of Stars and Storytelling to celebrate the show's 60th anniversary.
This special episode will have everything you could ever wish for - fans, cast members, and creators talking about their love for the show, as well as clips from the past 60 years.
Of course, we'll get to see some of our favorite current cast members, including Emmy winners like Genie Francis, Finola Hughes, Laura Wright, and Maurice Benard. But that's not all! We're also going to be treated to some familiar faces from the past, like Emma Samms, Rick Springfield, and Amber Tamblyn. It's going to be a reunion like no other! One really fun moment in the promo video is when the cast, both past and present, share their first memories of watching General Hospital. Can you believe that for many of them, it was when Luke and Laura got married?
That episode back in 1981 brought in a whopping 30 million viewers, making it the most-watched soap opera episode in American daytime television history. Talk about a monumental moment! But you know what's even more amusing? Tristan Rogers, who has played Robert Scorpio for the last four decades, revealed that his very first time watching the soap opera was when he made his first appearance in it. He jokingly wanted to see how bad he was, but to his surprise, he realized he was actually pretty good. Ah, the irony! Now, let's take a moment to appreciate the legacy of General Hospital. This show has brought us so many incredible storylines over the years.
So, are you as excited as we are about General Hospital: 60 Years of Stars and Storytelling? It's going to be a night full of nostalgia, laughter, and maybe even a few tears. We can't wait to see all the cast members reminisce about their time on the show and hear stories about what General Hospital means to them. Make sure to tune in on Thursday night, January 4, at 10/9c on ABC. It's going to be epic!
