It’s not easy being one of Sonny Corinthos’s kids. You invariably get shot (even by your dad), end up in therapy, join a cult, try to jump off a roof, or learn he shot your bio dad dead. All in a day’s work.

But this week, we begin to relive it all as we take a walk down Port Charles memory lane with Sonny and his many kids. (He is definitely one prolific mobster.) So far, Avery and Donna seem safe, but we know life won’t be easy for them either — especially with Ava (Maura West) and Carly as their mothers. But now it’s time to remember Sonny. Get a sneak peek in the General Hospital spoilers preview above.
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.
