Thanksgiving was going even more horribly than prior years on General Hospital because this time the Quartermaines were mourning the loss of Edward.

General Hospital Thanksgiving

He was the last member of Tracy’s (Jane Elliot) immediate family and she took his death pretty hard. While they tried to have a traditional turkey dinner, of course, everything went wrong. But somehow… a pizza miracle happened and several pizza pies were delivered, saving the day.

GH History

GH made its debut on April 1, 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, GH is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.

The soap exploded into mainstream media in the early 1980s due to the show’s immense popularity. Daytime Emmy winners Genie Francis (Laura) and Anthony Geary (ex-Luke) appeared on the covers of Newsweek and People magazines. Created by Frank and Doris Hursley, the show is currently helmed by executive producer Frank Valentini and is head written by Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor. The Corinthos, Quartermaine, Baldwin, Collins, Jerome, and Ashford families drive stories today in the show’s fictional hamlet, Port Charles. .

Bringing the Drama

GH has won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series a record 13 times — more than any other soap opera. The show is one of four remaining daytime dramas currently on the air. The other three are Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB).

General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes. For more about what’s coming up in Port Charles, check out all the latest that’s been posted on GH spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
