Literally, General Hospital continues to have more than One Life to Live on ABC, as it will move an hour earlier on Monday, September 10, where it was once owned by OLTL, which ended its 44-year run back in January to make room for The Revolution, which didn’t lived up to the name in terms of ratings.
GH‘s venerable 3pm slot will belong to Katie Couric for her new self-titled talk show.
Currently the longest-running soap opera in production, General Hospital (GH) recently won five Daytime Emmys – including Best Drama, Best Actor for Anthony Geary as legendary Port Charles anti-hero Luke Spencer, Best Supporting Actress for Nancy Lee Grahn as top attorney Alexis Davis, and Best Supporting Actor for departing cast member Jonathan Jackson as Lucky Spencer, Luke’s son and “cowboy.”
Jackson will next star on ABC’s upcoming series Nashville.
GH will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.
