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.

Who let the dog out? Emmy winner Bruce Weitz (of Hill Street Blues fame) is back on General Hospital as hilarious mob don Anthony Zacchara. Though the character has been in prison for the last two years — supposedly with a life sentence — he gets out this week with nothing but evil (and women!) on his mind.
