In case you missed it, ‘General Hospital’ was preempted today because of news coverage of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. As a result, the planned episode of GH will now air tomorrow. In addition, ‘Days of Our Lives’ was rescheduled for Friday. So what does this mean for fans of both shows? Read on to find out what the implications are and why you should care.
ABC’s ‘General Hospital’ preempted by news coverage of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump
News coverage of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial has already begun, and ABC’s ‘General Hospital’ will be no exception. This week, the daytime drama has been preempted by special reports on ABC News. Luckily, the show will be back soon. Read on to learn more. We’ll keep you posted.
ABC’s ‘General Hospital’ will return to its usual schedule on January 29, after two weeks of interruptions due to news coverage of the impeachment trial. News coverage of the trial could interrupt daytime programs like Dr. Phil and ABC’s ‘General Hospital,’ but it will be the full impeachment trial that will interrupt the two shows.
GH’s planned episode will instead air tomorrow
Due to ongoing news coverage and two upcoming Jan. 6 hearings, ABC has postponed a new episode of General Hospital on Monday. Instead, it will air tomorrow on WEEKDAYS. Fans can watch the delayed episode on Hulu or catch reruns. But why is an episode of General Hospital delayed? Let’s examine the reasons. In previous episodes, a prisoner named Alexis had sex with Nikolas. The episode, scheduled to air today, will instead be rerun.
Fans of the soap opera have expressed their disappointment with the cancellation. However, fans have praised the show’s recent season and the tragic love story between Stone Cates and Robin Scorpio. Stone was a teenager who died of AIDS. The tragedy of the storyline also forced Robin Scorpio to deal with being HIV-positive. Both of these actors received Daytime Emmy nominations for their work on the show. Moreover, Kimberly McCullough earned a nomination for Outstanding Young Actress for her role in the episode.
GH recasting Michael temporarily
The ABC soap opera General Hospital recently recast the role of Michael Corinthos temporarily. This change was reportedly made after actor Chad Duell decided to leave the show. Robert Adamson will be stepping into Michael’s shoes for a few episodes. He is a former Noah Newman and Young & the Restless alum. GH fans were quick to react positively to the casting decision.
Earlier this month, Robert Adamson, who previously played Noah Newman on The Young and the Restless, was cast in the role of Michael Corinthos. Chad Duell returned to his role on July 7, but Robert Adamson was a recent addition to the cast. Robert Adamson is best known for his role as Noah Newman on Young and the Restless. However, the cast has been shaken up before.
Days of Our Lives rescheduled for Friday
Daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives has been rescheduled to air at 3 p.m. UTC-6 Central Time on Friday, June 11. It was originally scheduled to air at 1 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. on Friday. However, because of the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics, the show has been preempted for several days. The show will resume its regular schedule on Monday, June 14.
NBC has reportedly rescheduled Days of Our Lives to air on a Friday night, so viewers can watch it with their families. The show’s ratings will be updated once the new episode airs. The 2020-21 season averaged a 0.30 rating in the 18-49 female demo and 1.70 million total viewers. NBC’s Winter Olympics coverage prevented the show from airing during this time.
