Why the People Who Run GH Suck, Part 762
Due to the magic of TiVo (I want there to be an audio accompaniment every time I type that word, like angels in the heavens or something), I don't watch commercials. I think this may be why it took me so long to become aware of Prom: The Musical, and why my understanding of paper towels' absorbency is limited. Anyway, I fast-forward at warp speed, often not even looking. Unless I'm directed to. Reader ElementaryDays commented last night on something and I had to go back and see it for myself. So I did. Now, I'm speechless with Soap Rage.
Dateline: Monday, June 18, 2007. Three days after the portrayer of one of General Hospital's two signature characters won her first Emmy. ABC Daytime runs a "congratulations on your Emmy!" spot . . . For Rick Hearst, who also won a supporting role Emmy. Now, I think his Emmy was well-deserved, and of course the network should congratulate him on the win, but did I mention THAT'S WHERE THE SPOT ENDED? Not a word about Genie Francis. I don't care that she's not on the show anymore--it's not like she was fired, they brought her back knowing it was just for a few weeks (please don't take that as an endorsement of that)--she blew the doors off the place, and for GOD'S SAKE she is Laura, as in OF LUKE AND LAURA YOU MINDLESS, HEARTLESS BITCHES.
