ABC is going all-out in promoting Vanessa Marcil’s anticipated return to General Hospital. Tuesday the network announced it will air three classic episodes featuring The Men in Brenda Barrett’s Life on August 10. Could this have something to do Jamey’s earlier report about ABC planning to air more “classic episodes”?
In celebration of Vanessa Marcil's return to "General Hospital" as Brenda Barrett on Wednesday, August 11, special Brenda programming takes over on ABC Daytime and SOAPnet the week of August 9. "General Hospital" will own the ABC Daytime drama block from 1:00-3:00 PM, ET on Tuesday, August 10, with classic episodes featuring the men in Brenda's life (Sonny, Jax and Jason).
Producers of the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are pulling out all the stops to get people to tune in this Sunday night (live 9-11 pm ET/PST tape delayed) on CBS. Daytime's eagerly-anticipated, returning daughter, General Hospital's Vanessa Marcil, has been added to the list of presenters, along with Let's Make a Deal's Wayne Brady, Jeff Foxworthy of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and Jeopardy's Alex Trebek.
In other Daytime Emmy news, American Idol's Ryan Seacrest, Donny Osmond, Chubby Checker, Tony Orlando and The Jersey Boys will all be participating in the tribute to the legendary Dick Clark. READ MORE
