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.

In 1978 when ABC gave the show six months to raise its ratings by two points or else face cancellation, Gloria Monty was brought in to produce. On her first day at the job, she reviewed four episodes that had already been taped and decided they needed to be re-taped at a cost of $100,000. See more »
I just really need some time to think. You know, I need to figure out what to do next. Do I really want to know my father? Do I want to know him badly enough to jeopardize the life that we have, you know, our family, the one that we've made together, just so I can reach out to a stranger? I don't know. And if I don't - you know, if I let this go and I just drop the whole thing, then won't I have regrets?
I wish I had all the answer for you, but, you know, all I can tell you is you got to trust ...

I'm so tired of people saying that General Hospital is just a stale old soap opera. GH has been a staple of ABC's daytime lineup for 39 years. It's 3rd in the ratings and I think that ain't half bad considering it's age. The Alexis, Sonny, Carly triangle is a masterpiece destined to go down in GH's extremly long history. The actors and actresses who portray the characters on the show are fantastic and so are the writers. I get very upset when people say that it's a stale soap. So when GH tries to do something exciting and fun people say that it is not true soap storytelling. Just like the revival of the Cassidines (Helena, Stavros). I thought that that was a great storyline. In closing I would just like to say that General Hospital is on the track to taking back the ratings crown from The Young and the Restless. Your the greatest GH!!!!
