I think GH's best years of story were 1971 (Audrey accused of murdering Tommy's kidnapper), 1978 (Laura and the David Hamilton murder), 1979 (Heather Webber's LSD switcheroo), and 1980 (the whole Monica-Rick-Lesley triangle hit its peak).  There were alot of good moments in the 90s, like Stone's Illness and death, BJ's death, and the reactivation of the Cassadines, but I don't think the show had two worst years than 1976 and 1977.  Those two years were the ones for "GH" that were the worst by far, with 1991 (Gloria Monty's second stint) coming in third.  1976 and 1977 for "GH" were so bad, it even makes anything after 2000 look like award material, in my opinion.

 

Oh yeah the little I've seen of that period isn't good. Have you rewatched and of the '76 or '77 clips that are on Youtube?

I have seen some 1977 on YouTube, but virtually none of 1976, which is a testament to how bad it was.  Almost whole episodes were devoted to Bobbi Jordan's Terri Webber singing at her club.  The late actress was talented when it came to drama, but, and I hate to speak ill of the dead, her singing caused me to tune out more than once!

Wasn't the 1976-1977 period was led GH to near cancellation, thus bringing Marland in?

Yes.  My mother was a faithful viewer of the show for many years, but after the blood bath that started in 1975, where Henry, Sharon, Lucille, Lee and his wife Caroline, and Jane were written out, my mother stopped watching and had zero interest in the new characters, including the newly created Webber brothers and their sister, Terri.  "I don't know these people that are on now," she complained.  And she never returned as a regular viewer before her passing.

I like Valentin. I want him.

While I do too, I said the same thing about Paul....then he got destroyed. These hacks will grind him to dust in favor of Big Red and the altar they have to Franco like everyone else ...

 

@KMan101...I've been trying not to engage, but I was already cranky from other things, and he hit my last nerve...

 

Laura, Tracy, Monica and Bobbi are at least written for by these 2, but Tracy should be dealing with ELQ, the hospital board,etc.. Bobbi/Monica at the hospital, and Laura has no apparent job. What about the old Deception rumors? Or her old job with runaways?

 

According to SOD, Michael is most ruined character...They don't even use him. The biggest mistake of the year was not making Sobby's kid his.. At least there'd be another Q out there...

Thanks. Goes to show the power of beloved characters & how dangerous it is to treat them badly, or get rid of them.

This saddens me. God, I hope not. They have the opportunity to keep him around longterm, if only they don't turn him into an irredeemable monster.

They had a solid actor in a legacy role and suddenly he was driveling about poor Susan.  BTW--no mention of Susan since, after Tracy and Dillon said they would take care of her....She must be hanging with Lucas...LOL!

And the bizarre thing about Lucas is his mother works at the hospital again! And instead of using Lucas they throw in a random dayplayer doctor.

To them he would just be a dayplayer anyway..

 

His salary per episode may say otherwise... and I'm 100% sure it doesn't 'say' anything they'd like to hear.

    • New soap from Sussman. The first daytime serial featuring a black family as one of the "core" families (around which story lines develop) debuts today (March 21) on NBC (there are two feeds: noon -12:30 p.m. and 12:30 -1 p.m.). The series centers on three generations of two Chicago families -the Marshalls, who are black, and the Whitmores, who are white. Pat Crowley (Dynasty), Taurean Blacque (Hill Street Blues), Joan Pringle (White Shadow), Lynn Hamilton (Sanford & Son), Gail Ramsey (General Hospital) and Andrew Massett (Days of our Lives) head the cast. Generations was created by Sally Sussman (The Young and the Restless), who will serve as executive producer and head writer. The show is being produced at NBC Studios in Burbank, Calif., by her company, Old Forest Hill Productions, in association with NBC Productions. In a recent press interview, Sussman said she did not create the program specifically with the notion of being the first to focus on a black family. "The fact that they are black is almost incidental to the concept of the show," she said. "What we hope to do is to be able to tell stories about all the generations, not to necessarily focus on just the young people or the older people, but to focus between the relationships and the differing classes and their struggles and the way that they are dealing in the 1990's."
    • Roseanne hit #1 the week it took over the Tues 9pm timeslot. It had a rating of 27.7/40. Cosby was #2 25.3/40 The 9.30 follow up Anything but Love was # 7 22.6/34 The competition was In The heat of the Night NBC #21 17.1/25 and the CBS Tuesday Movie #75 6.4/10 Roseanne's success to this point was noteworthy. I think it was the first  show that was moved to a lead in (8/9pm) timeslot in its first season. And one of the few shows to hit #1 in the weekly ratings in its first season. Cosby did it as did Beverly Hillbillies. Can't think of any others. Maybe Laugh In or Marcus Welby?
    • Promo ABC ran when Roseanne dethroned Cosby in the weekly ratings in 1989.  How often were these types of promos done congratulating shows that hit #1? I remember Roseanne saying at the time all ABC gave her was this promo and a stupid cake that said #1 (which she and George Clooney took a baseball bat to) while the male network stars were getting fancy cars and bigger network deals.  Must have been an amazing time for Carsey-Werner though, having the top 3 shows in all of television at this point. That’s a feat I don’t believe another production company has ever accomplished.
