General Hospital's Kin Shriner on John Stamos, Genie Francis and the Pot-Smoking Eighties

Kin Shriner

It's hard to tell who's more excited about Kin Shriner's February 19 return to General Hospital — him or us! The most beloved third wheel in suds history, Shriner's Scotty Baldwin was married to Laura (Genie Francis) back when she famously fell in love with Luke (Anthony Geary). Will the poor guy finally get revenge? According to an ABC rep, "Scott Baldwin returns to Port Charles as most of the town is gathered at the Haunted Star for a Valentine's Day party and the first person he sees is Luke. Things will escalate very quickly between the two of them." TV Guide Magazine spoke with Shriner — a veteran of 12 serials — about the best job he ever had... read more

General Hospital's Anthony Geary: "We'd Been Living on Death Row"

Anthony Geary

When General Hospital's Anthony Geary won his record seventh Daytime Emmy Award last month, he was understandably emotional — not just over his win, but because of the soap's rise from near-death.

"We were so shaky about a year ago until Frank [Valentini] came on to shore us all up," Geary told reporters at ABC's Television Critics Association fall TV previews Thursday. "We'd been living on Death Row. I think we were all pretty thrilled and excited about being acknowledged for the hard work."

Daytime Emmy Scoop and Fearless Predictions

Anthony Geary

Apparently, we had nothing to worry about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the daytime TV community last month when it was announced that the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards would air Saturday, June 23 on cable channel HLN (8/7c). Up until then, it was widely believed the awards — which no network wanted — would go untelevised or end up on the Internet. But Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, tells TV Guide Magazine that he "always had two backup plans in place — including one with Reelz — if the HLN [deal] didn't happen. We would never have let these awards leave television."

Exclusive: General Hospital's New Head Writer Garin Wolf Looks to the Future

Anthony Geary

Daytime's most controversial — and, now, precarious — soap is ABC's General Hospital and it has a new head writer. His name is Garin Wolf and he's been on the GH team since 1997.

(You'll see his work begin to air the week of July 25.) Can Wolf save GH from being swallowed whole by Katie Couric? Can he redeem child-killer Luke Spencer? Will he cut back on the mobsters?
