On Thursday, April 28, General Hospital staged an intervention for the character of Luke Spencer (Tony Geary). The character had hit rock bottom due to his alcohol use. During the 3 PM eastern broadcast of the program, there was a pre-emption for a Presidential speech, so I watched the episode in full on the same day SoapNet airing.

Thanks to Soap Opera 451 for the book suggestion entry. Here is a direct link to their entry on it. Boob Tube is a 2010 ebook novel by Mark and Lesleyann Coker. The story takes place in LA in the soap opera industry. The plot is fictional, but inspired by real life.

It has been over 48 hours since the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live have been announced. Hopefully in the next couple of days, I can write about other topics, but for tonight I needed to touch upon this situation again. This entry may not be 100% sane, due to the late hour it is being written, but I felt the need to get out of my system.

Earlier today, it was made official that All My Children and One Life to Live are going off the air within the next few months. The topic has been trending on twitter, go on Facebook or look around message boards and alas it is no longer a rumor. I had scrapped what I was planning on writing and posted this instead. Here are my initial thoughts about this situation.

This week I took time out to read Susan Lucci’s memoir All My Life, which was co-written with Laura Morton. The over 300-page book had some interesting tidbits. In this entry I am going to share some of it and my other thoughts on the book.

This entry is through April 1st episode of All My Children. This past week, Angie Hubbard gave birth to a baby. Sadly the child was stillborn. I’m still processing all of this, but I wanted to write about my thoughts at this point.
