The Biz: Why Soaps Are Bubbling

Susan Flannery, Lesley-Anne Down

Like a popular dead character suddenly coming back to life, the rising ratings of the remaining daytime dramas are a major surprise of the TV season.

All four soaps are seeing growth in total audience and at least one of the younger demographic categories (women ages 18 to 49 and women ages 18 to 34) that are important to advertisers. On CBS, The Bold and the Beautiful is up 12 percent in total viewers this season, giving the show its best start since 2007, while The Young and the Restless recently had its largest weekly audience since... read more

General Hospital Scoop: Who's Staying, Who's Going?

Genie Francis and Kin Shriner

Table for three? Right this way! ABC has announced that ousted General Hospital stars Michael Easton, Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson, who left the soap several weeks ago due that contract mess with Prospect Park, will all return on May 10. No plot deets are available yet, but it does have us wondering who will remain on this gloriously over-stuffed show, especially now that the 50th anniversary craziness has peaked, and the Nurses Ball is a camptastic memory. What's to become of Laura and Scotty and Bobbie and Lucy? Is looney-tunes Brenda on her way out? Is Frisco too pissed to come back? And will Blackie Parrish ever get out of the slammer and return to Port Chuck? TV Guide Magazine got the 411 from head writer Ron Carlivati.

Genie Francis, Anthony Geary, Kin Shriner

All that's missing are the mullets. A trip to the General Hospital soundstage these days feels like an express pass to the 1980s, especially during the filming of the big fan-fave event known as the Nurses Ball. The red-carpet soiree — airing April 5, 8 and 9 as part of the soap's 50th anniversary celebration — has Rick Springfield returning as Dr. Noah Drake, who will take to the stage and rock out "Jessie's Girl." Off on the sidelines, Frisco (Jack Wagner) is trying to woo back his Reagan-era love Felicia (Kristina Wagner), while Anna (Finola Hughes) is once again in the arms of her Duke (Ian Buchanan). And look, it's the long-lost Nurse B obbie (Jackie Zeman)! Fitness guru Richard Simmons, another '80s fixture in Port Charles, is on hand as the charity gala's pushy choreographer. But not even he can get these oldies sweatin'.

Never in my life would I think I'd be doing this well and would be getting these marks and comments," Jenkins tells TVGuide.com. "But I'm not concerning myself too much with scores or trying to [maintain a streak]. You can't think about that."
