Here's a shocker. TV Guide Magazine has learned that four-time Emmy winner Jonathan Jackson has decided to leave General Hospital and his role as Lucky Spencer and will shoot his final scenes November 17...
It's time for that annual exercise in hopelessness, pointlessness and foolishness — predicting the Daytime Emmys! I mean, seriously, why do we bother? You can think you have good taste and know award-worthy talent when you see it. You can spend hours upon hours reviewing the reels that each of the nominees has submitted to the judges. And then it can all blow up in your face with three little words: Drew Tyler Bell. Yes, my little soap peeps, anyone can win at the Daytime Emmys (which air Sunday at 8/7c, on CBS). Anyone. So, with that in mind, here we go...

It's been a harrowing week for General Hospital fans, what with the accidental hit-and-run death of 4-year-old Jake Spencer. And things just got a whole lot worse. After the Friday's cliffhanger, we now know that the little boy was killed by his own grandfather, Luke Spencer! Next week, word will spread throughout Port Charles that the free-living Luke — no surprise here — was drinking prior to the accident. TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with the man, the myth, the legend himself, Anthony Geary, to discuss this shocker plot twist. Where does the great Luke Spencer go from here?

Best Soap: The Bold and the Beautiful
How can one show be both gloriously uplifting and dirty as hell? That's the marvel of B&B! After back-to-back Emmy wins as best soap, this CBS serial should make it three in a row thanks to its daring lung-cancer plot involving big mama Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) who nearly chose death over life. Episodes with Stephanie visiting the homeless on L.A.'s Skid Row, and giving them a chance to tell their life stories, made for important and transcendent TV.
