General Hospital (commonly abbreviated GH) is an American daytime television medical drama that is listed in Guinness World Records as the longest-running American soap opera in production and the third longest-running drama in television in American history after Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

Concurrently, it is the world’s third longest-running scripted drama series in production after British serials The Archers and Coronation Street, as well as the world’s second-longest televised soap opera still in production.

General Hospital premiered on the ABC television network on April 1, 1963. It is the longest-running serial produced in Hollywood, and the longest-running entertainment program in ABC television history. It holds the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Drama Series, with 11 wins.

I have been watching for about 36/37 of those years!

Everyone gathers for AJ’s burial, today on #GH.

Still not on board with the decision to kill off AJ. Such a legacy character. And he was resurrected not that long ago. To lose another Quartermaine just for some Sonny angst… Not a good decision in my opinion.

You will always be a part of me.

They need to bring Emily back, living and breathing, permanently.

The moment you’ve all been waiting for… The legendary Donna Mills comes to #GH today! #GH50

Who will she be playing? Silas’ mother-in-law, maybe?
