DC is reporting this entire trio got renewed. Frank keeps budget in check but he gets to keep job mostly because of Jean and Shelly and the power of smarttv. These women gave us romance, women over 40 in leading lady stories, family and a wonderful nurses ball. Consistent ratings . ABC is smart if it aint broke DONT FIX IT.

Those of us who are soap fans know that if writers and producers constantly change, it often will lead to bad decisions with story, cast dissatisfaction, drastic changes that alienate viewers, and more likely than not, cancellation.  I have like FV's version of "GH" better than JFP's version.  I am not as over the moon happy with Jelly as you are Jonny, but, all in all, after watching the last few months, I think their writing has improved.  They have found their footing.  So, why then, do you keep saying that Shelly Altman should co-write "Days" or even "Y&R" again?

They gave us dull unwatchable stories and obnoxious characters. Unlike CBS ABC/Disney doesn't care about GH. Another year of mediocre.

Proof no one at ABC gives two sh!ts about this show. 

Exactly!  And ABCd was not going to let Smelly Jelly be Carlivati'd. No point in bringing in new writers for a trash show that no one at ABCd cares about. Frank canned Ron to keep GH from getting canceled but Jelly can't fix this chit when Frank is actually the problem.

Are we going to get fairy dust sprinkled with it?

Funny thing is you praised Jean and Shelly at YR to the high heavens not at GH. Even though u loathed RC u dont even give Jean her due. Honestly Frank has kept the budget in line ratings have been good. Any out of work head writer would love to write GH. I bet u Tomlin and Whitesell would love another round. Keeping things consistent is good. Soapsuds i think u secretly love Jean P u wont admit it. She was head writer of ATWT for nearly a decade. That was by far her longest stint.

More likely Jelly are still employed because no one wanted the gig

 

ETA: Or others were sought but their price tag too much so Jelly kept their jobs.

Oh I am sure that they could find people for cheaper but they don't want to. There are writers on soap forums all across the Internet that could fix all these shows and wouldn't ask for a fraction of what these bozos are getting; however, this genre is like boys club. Only a small few get in. That's why this genre is dying. They don't create enough new blood to keep it fresh. 

 

And Jean/Frank/Shelly can keep on writing GH with their 'smart writing' and kill it off. GH should've died YEARS ago. 

 

Perks of all of this is that this'll most likely be the last job those 3 hacks have. They better enjoy why they can....

Frank might keep the budget in check, but the show looks AWFUL.

I don't remember GH ever looking any cheaper. The sets look like crap, and the lighting isn't any better. Direction is uninspired.

With Mal Young raising YR's game so much, GH never looked worse. The upshot? Mediocre writing seems even lousier on a crummy looking show.

Ranger u simply should have seen Jean and Shelly work at YR to understand the progression of smarttv. It was the closest to a bell YR i had seen in years. They have lots of juicy story planned. These ladies are the saving grace for GH. To say they are miracle workers and they saved GH is an understatement.

The show may as well take it's cancellation slip right now.  Valentini, Varni, Altman and Passanante have been killing the show for months. Howarth, Stafford, Erin,Parisse, and Devry have long overstayed their time on the show. I won't even get into Easton's  how many characters?  Oh yeah, Frank hired his "friend" back....

Mellowing them down has not worked. More mob B.S., Quirky Todd(I mean Franko)just needs to be loved--gaggg!!!!!!!!   Poor Nina just wants to be a mom....Gagggggg!   Joe's non relationship with Sobby is obviously over----Bye!   ?Kiki should have been killed off on the pier.    Jillian?  No words other than "Rabid Julexis Fans"

 

These are among their favorite stories.

 

The show's title is General Hospital...Let's close it down!

 

And that's what it looks like they are going to do.
