During the original show up through the 1970s, the show primarily covered Dr. Steve Hardy (John Beradino) and his friend, Nurse Jessie Brewer (Emily McLaughlin). Late in the 1970s, the show was doing badly in the ratings, so a new executive producer, Gloria Monty, decided to move the show's focus away from the hospital and onto material more relevant to a younger audience than the stereotypical "bored housewife", thus bringing in Luke and Laura, (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) and eventually having them marry in a stereotypical fantasy wedding that would not be matched until the real-life marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

When ABC canceled All My Children and One Life to Live and replaced them with the lifestyle shows The Chew and The Revolution, General Hospital was left as the remaining daytime drama on the network. There was speculation that it would be canceled to make room for Katie Courics' new talk show. However The Revolution was a critical and ratings failure, while General Hospitals ratings improved noticeable, which has been credited to former One Life executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took on the respective duties at GH after One Lifes' cancellation. Th Revolution was canceled a few months after its' debut and replaced by an afternoon addition of Good Morning America for the remainder of summer 2012. In the fall GH took over its' time slot and Katie (2012) took over the time slot GH had previously had. See more »
I'm going to get away from Sonny, and somehow we will find each other, ok?
That's wishful thinking, Justus.
Sonny owes me.
You're not really buying into this man-oh-honor crap, are you? How do you think he survived so long? He eliminates anyone who double-crosses him, whether he owes them or not.
It is my choice to help you. If I die in the process, at least I know I died for a noble cause.

i have been a viewer since 1963, watched in black and white, was 13, and still watching. i have seen them come and go on this show and it's still the best one on TV. it has had it's ups and downs and always manages to come out on top. remember Jesse? Audrey and he sister Lucille? that was back in the day! i do so miss the Luke and laura thing. Luke just isn't Luke without laura. Anthony Geary has only improved with age. Luke is all that and more. GH also has the best looking guys and the sexiest, is Jax gorgeous or what? Jason is sooooooooo smooth, and all that too. it will always be hard for the writers to top the original Luke and Laura storyline,it dosen't get any better then that, but they have kept me watching all these years. to every one that is associated with the show, keep up the good work
