On my morning hop, I found a few updates regarding General Hospital: Night Shift's ratings and news of a possible third season in the works. There has been no official announcement of the third season pick up, however, the ratings look good enough to warrant one.
Solid Returns for General Hospital: Night Shift:
Two episodes two-date, season two of SOAPnet’s General Hospital: Night Shift is averaging a healthy 466,000 total viewers, with a 170,000 key women 18-49. Comparably, this is an increase over the prior four-week time period average by a significant 81 percent in households and 68 percent among adults 18-49.
Night Shift is back exactly where they left off last season! The surprise hit for SOAPnet last year is still pulling in the best numbers the network has ever had. With an 11pm viewing time SOAPnet is exceeding their numbers for that time slot by over 70%.
Look for the network to start production on a third season of Night Shift, that will most likely air in the beginning of the new year.
Also, fans of the Canadian produced MVP can look forward to more new episodes as the show is continuing with production.
Assistant Executive Producer, SOAPnet
No offense to America's TV Guide Channel but when it comes to creating a list of the sexiest stars in soaps, the Canadians have it all over us Yanks. Our pal Nelson Branco from TV Guide Canada has unveiled his list of Soap's 22 Sexiest Stars and all I can say is someone pass me a cigarette!
I just finished watching the first two episodes of Canadian soap import MVP on SOAPnet and I am crazy impressed! After seeing previews of the show, I was intrigued yet a part of me was afraid MVP-jam packed with hopelessly-beautiful babe-izons and buffed studs in white boxer briefs who likely spent more time at the gym than at Summer Shakespeare workshops-might have proven to be more Models, Inc. than Melrose Place, but I am glad to say the land that gave us Degrassi and Maple Syrup doesn't disappoint. MVP is icy hot!
From Damon, the tormented, David Beckham-esque male slut, to she-devil Daddy's girl Molly, to fresh-from-the-farm rookie Trevor (he of the aforementioned boxer briefs), MVP has plenty of interesting characters and juicy plotlines.
At the center of the saga is a classic Cinderella storyline featuring reformed bad guy-turned-team captain Gabe and virginal child care worker Connie. The pair gets off to a promising start before Gabe gets roped into a sex scandal involving Trevor. I won't ruin the surprise since SOAPnet plans to air all three eppys of it's new gem next Friday for the Fourth of July, but I will say I hope Gabe has his face insured! Check out MVP: He Shoots, She Scores Thurs. at 11 pm. ET.
