Easton, Howarth, and Alderson Back to GH...As Different Characters!

The legal mess between Prospect Park and ABC continues and it's creating a lot of drama. According to TV Guide.comMichael Easton, Roger Howarth, and Kristen Alderson will be returning to General Hospital as planned, however they will most likely be playing entirely different characters. While I have been hoping these three actors would return to GH, I can't say I'm happy about the prospect of them playing new characters.

The Wait is Almost Over for AMC and OLTL!

The wait is almost over! All My Children and One Life to Live will be returning April 29th on Hulu and iTunes. For those of you who don't like watching programs on your computer you can watch these shows on your tv if you have a Hulu Plus subscription and a device capable of streaming Hulu (apple tv, xbox, wii, various blu-ray players and tvs). Hulu is currently offering a free one week trial, after that it is about $8 a month. I'm assuming you can still watch these shows for free on basic Hulu but it will require you to view them on your computer. As for iTunes, I'm not sure what the specifications will be for watching these shows, but when I find out I will post details here immediately. In the meantime, here are a few links you will find helpful:

A few hours ago actor Brandon Barash, who plays Johnny Zacchara on General Hospital saddened and confused fans when he announced he was leaving the show to pursue a career in the NBA.

Read his tweet below and decide for yourself:
