The week of January 13, 2020

Two returns are on the agenda. Bradford Anderson is back as computer genius Damian Spinelli. Look for the character to share scenes with Kirsten Storms’ Maxie on Monday, January 13.

Bonnie Burroughs wrapped up her latest stint as Gladys Corbin, after Sonny (Maurice Benard) bought her car and sent her back to Connecticut.

General Hospital History

GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running sudser is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running sudser, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.

The daytime drama outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households! From Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura’s (Genie Francis) gripping romance and wedding, to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH knows how to please their viewers.

Bringing the Drama

More than five decades of gripping drama has kept the daytime sudser on the air as other soap operas were axed. It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). GH airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for air times.
