HomeTVGeneral HospitalGuza Said What? Regan Cellura October 31, 2008 21 Comments What in Bob Guza hell is going on at General Hospital? First he says the Sweeps Stunt is something never before seen in daytime and now Nelson is reporting that Guza has pushed his big "stunt" back to January of 2009. Is it a Sweeps Stunt if it doesn’t happen during Sweeps or is it just a stunt no one will care about? “You’ve never seen this [storyline done] before on daytime. It’s way cool, super innovative, and will surely get [your] attention.” —GH head writer Bob Guza on moving his previously reported big November sweeps-stunt to January 2009 in Soaps In Depth. Translation: Let me see if I get fired first before I give them my “best” stuff, which I blatently stole from either a movie or a prime-time series. 21 Responses lene91 October 31, 2008 I will watch if they are bring Natalia back as Emily and reuniting Nik/Em! Log in to Reply ssjohn October 31, 2008 The Tornado that just went threw AMC was a sweep stunt before sweeps and we all seemed to care about that. I am looking forward to whatever the storyline is hopefully it will excite me and make me want to tune into GH again, thou the Spencer’s storyline is doing that right now so i hope they keep it up.

I’m not for it… Natty is Emily and I hate old faces returning with new names regardless of their new hair do. Now there were RUMORS that this whole last year, since the B&W Ball, has been a really bad long dream of Nikolas’ brought on by his tumor. Those RUMORS are SOOOOO OLD and I have not seen them in months. Would that be a HUGE Stunt? Maybe…. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 31, 2008 True John but that was a jump on Sweeps… is it better to be early or late to the party? Log in to Reply ssjohn October 31, 2008 But let’s see how much they will have to undo. Deaths: Georgie, Emily , Ephiany’s son (?), Logan, Coop. Shooting: Micheal Kate Children: Scrubs Broken up relationships: CarJax’s Matt hunter’s appearance, All of NS2, all the Laura stuff and alooot more. If they were to do the ‘its a dream’ i wouldn’t be against it but they have to remember all of this stuff. Log in to Reply ssjohn October 31, 2008 January is early jump on February sweeps lol. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 31, 2008 Oh I am not saying they should do it… they would undoubtly screw something up so I am not for it. That was a RUMOR out there way back when. I would much rather Helena (i’m channeling my inner danielle) be behind it than the dream option. I’m just trying to figure out the "stunt." Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 31, 2008 January is early jump on February sweeps lol. A very early jump as Sweeps in 2009 kick off with March Sweeps! They decided to push the Sweeps period that usually happens in February back to March in case there are problems with the digital conversion. Log in to Reply ssjohn October 31, 2008 In case there are problems with the digital conversion I am just waiting for that whole mess to be over, I don’t think there is a ‘in case’ i think there will be some major problems ;-/. I didn’t know sweeps got pushed back thou, thanks for the info Log in to Reply SusieQ October 31, 2008 If they make it all Nikolas dream, do we get to see him coming out of the shower? I might tune in for that -lol! Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 31, 2008 LOL Susie… I doubt they’re going the dream route. Although Guza never ceases to amaze me… Log in to Reply Beth October 31, 2008 Yeah, I don’t try to get into Guza’s mind. I haven’t a had a tetanus shot in a while. Log in to Reply LIASONADDICT October 31, 2008 PLEASE FIRE THIS MAN ALREADY HE IS JUST STALLING TRYING TO SAVE HIS JOB _____________________________________________ NO MORE TEQUILA N DOMINO’S…WOOO-HOOO!!!! Log in to Reply LuvSKate October 31, 2008 WOW, Guza’s strategy – STALL his inevitable groundbreaking flop which he’ll deem sweep of all sweeps resulting in his long overdue firing. Shame on TPTB that go along with it and shame on the fans that keep supporting it. (guess you can count me among them, at least for the moment. My excuse, I’m still in shock over the obsurd all or nothing SKate wedding and aftermath. Guess I am a fool to think that can’t be it???) Log in to Reply Simple C November 1, 2008 I got it! Sonny is going to get Jason pregnant! Log in to Reply hunterforrester November 1, 2008 The show is going to be re-titled MONAVIE HOSPITAL! Log in to Reply katclaws November 1, 2008 Let me see if I get fired first before I give them my “best” stuff, which I blatently stole from either a movie or a prime-time series ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Wow, that was my very first thought when I read that Sweeps was being pushed back! Guza needs to get the big heave-ho. He is ruining any chance that GH has of ever getting a full recovery! jmho Log in to Reply sb_fan November 1, 2008 I think he just has a humongously big ego, and therefore, screwing all of us in the process…not in a good way, I might add. Log in to Reply SusieQ November 1, 2008 Guza pushed it back til 24 and Lost premiere this season – coincidence or brainstorming strategy? lol! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 November 2, 2008 All his s/ls has failed big-time and the fans are at his head to be release and get a new head writer who will give them what they want and listen to them. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply Chrystie-Delancey November 3, 2008 I agree with sb_fan’s opinion of Guza. This guy has a tremendous ego. I remember a year ago he talked about how great the Nik and Emily story would be and how it would be such a great love story that no one had ever seen before. It dragged and dragged and dragged and I found it very unromantic, but that is my opinion. He seems to think that just because no one has ever seen his story before, that is means great storytelling – not always.
