So what was it about Gloria Monty's second run with the show that made it be less than successful?

I Believe She went Back To GH with The idea to Intro The Eckerts Then Eventually Spin them off but the eckerts werent successful

The Q's Got BackBurned

She Fired Finola Hughes and recast her With Camilla Moore and Then Tristian Rogers Quit

I believe Those Things Got Her FIRED

She had a vision, but her vision was not wanted by the audience. She had this thing for the blue-collar Eckarts, but they were blue collar in the most annoying cliche way with Mama Eckart in the kitchen making her sauce while Papa Eckart sat in the chair wanting to read the paper and be a grouch. The best Eckart was the Eckart by marriage, Nancy. They eventually had a nice little whodunit with her.

I'd have to say the Douglas Marland period was my favorite. He really knew how to do a well rounded show. I'm always puzzled as to why he isn't given as much credit for helping save GH.

Something else I always wondered was how Monty got Pat Falken Smith to come back. Didn't they have a falling out that resulted in a law suit when she left the first time?

In my opinion, the best Head Writer the show ever had was Claire Labine.

The best producer was Wendy Riche.

However, obviously, Gloria Monty's first run was GENIUS and saved the show.

But Claire and Wendy have a special place in my heart.
