Whether by accident or by design sometimes an actor considered a bit player or non-essential to a TV show’s main storyline becomes an underground fan favorite. Meet Carolyn Hennesy a.k.a. Diane Miller on General Hospital.  Hennesy is one of those actresses who probably gets a lot of people coming up to her and saying, “Didn’t we go to high school together?” or “Weren’t you my brother’s divorce attorney?” The 46-year old classically trained actress looks so …

General Hospital’s Heart Disease Awareness Effort Strikes an Awkward Note

OK, I know it is for a good cause and all but I couldn’t help feeling a bit icky yesterday when one of the characters on ABC’s General Hospital mentioned a brand name product he liked: Campbell’s V8 Fusion drink. This not-so-subtle plug was a result of ABC teaming up with Campbell’s Soup Company and the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women”  effort to raise awareness about the dangers of heart disease in women. The …

Daytime Dish: ‘GH’, ‘One Life to Live’, ‘As The World Turns’

Sarah Brown, the first of four actresses to play the role of Carly Corinthos, will be making a return to General Hospital. Interestingly enough, she won’t be there to take her old spot back (like Rebecca Budig recently did on All My Children).  Brown will be making a splashy entrance as an entirely new character: Claudia Zacchara, mobster Johnny’s sister.  (Don’t try and question how this could happen; Kelly Monaco played a different character on the …

Late Night Repeats for Writer-less Talk Shows

If the Writers Guild of America strikes on Monday as scheduled, you can expect a slate of late-night reruns to put you to bed.  Assuming a last-minute Sunday mediation session doesn’t prevent the 12,000 WGA members from walking out, daily productions ranging from The Colbert Report to Late Night with Conan O’Brien will immediately go into repeats.  So much for November sweeps. The impact will not necessarily be limited to evening fare; daytime chatfests like The …
