GH has literally been on life support since it moved up an hour earlier from its regular 3pm slot to make room for Katie Couric's self-titled talk show, which was given the pink slip after just two seasons.
But thanks to executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati, they brought new life back into GH with the return of the Nurses Ball and several fan favorites to celebrate its 50th anniversary last spring, which included performances by Rick Springfield (Dr. Noah Drake/Eli Love) and Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones).
After being "Mob Central" for almost a decade, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) sets out to bring law and order back in Port Charles as police commissioner, but her boyfriend Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) is involved in the war that is brewing between Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Julian Jerome (William deVry), Duke and Anna's old enemy who sets out to reclaim the territory that his family lost two decades ago.
However, fans of the reunited Patrick (Jason Thompson) & Robin are going to be disappointed once more, as Kimberly McCullough checks out of GH again after returning last fall as Dr. Robin Scorpio-Drake, a role she originated in 1985 and has been playing the role on/off ever since; an airdate for her final episode has yet to be announced.
GH airs weekdays at 2pm on ABC.
