HomeTVGeneral HospitalSonny Corinthos is About to Go Straight GANGSTA on Jerry Jacks Starting Sept. 10 on General Hospital! (PROMO) Jamey Giddens August 31, 2012 48 Comments OMFG: Entertainment Tonight has released a new General Hospital promo featuring my favorite, badass mob boss Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) vowing to take water-poisoning baddie Jerry Jacks (Sebastian Roche) DOWN! I have chills. Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati said they came to do WORK! Watch the Sept. 10 GH promo after the jump! General Hospital moves to 2 pm EST starting Sept. 10 on ABC. 48 Responses jthawk August 31, 2012 That looks amazing! I can’t wait to see how all of this goes down. It really looks as though they are pulling out all the stops for their time slot moving! I am thrilled to see what goes down. Log in to Reply mipeony August 31, 2012 I always thought that Jerry was more Jason’s enemy than Sonny’s. But I guess, if it doesn’t revolve around the mini-don, it doesn’t happen on GH. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 31, 2012 What there is to see from this promo looks to have some very good production values. (And yes, I know it’s violent, which I guess when dealing with Jerry Jacks, that’s the thing he understands.) Maybe this will be the end of the bully’s mob career and he’ll retire. Oh, wait what am I thinking? Silly me. But I can dream, can’t I?… 0:) Log in to Reply MsAgentProvocateur1 August 31, 2012 [quote=SwanQueen59]What there is to see from this promo looks to have some very good production values.

Once gain little Sonny is about to pull out his big gun :Sp Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 31, 2012 MsAgent-A lot of us would like to forget Peapack, NJ. Unfortunately it still comes back to haunt us. Like a joke with a really bad punchline. liason4real-LOL! This is what the character is still able to do…0:) Log in to Reply really August 31, 2012 I am sure the story would have been exciting if it wasn’t about Sonny, the voiceover made me roll my eyes, Sonny is just a pathetic joke now. I mean he honestly has zero place in it, it should be about Jax and Alexis, Liz and the Qs. I was going to watch but knowing they are going to have a huge focus on Sonny and make him a hero I think I will skip it, especially with the spoiler of Carson. Honestly try to be different then Guza. And if Carson, together or separate have a huge place in this story then I know its a skipper because MB hasn’t put in a decent performance since he reacted to Brenda’s death in the late 90s and LW is the worst actress in daytime and for sure GH. I can’t believe they are wasting talent like IR, SR, NLG, JE, JT and BH by not having them be the focus and instead giving the airtime to untalented MB and LW.

I’m sorry but I just can’t take this seriously. This is how FV and RC plan to do blockbuster September? It really seems like more of the same. Wake me for GH’s 50th anniversary. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin August 31, 2012 I think it looks AWESOME. Im also glad to see a lot of alexis in the promo. Jerry is a delicious villain and then you add in todd, jason, john SO YUMMY. Log in to Reply GHteenybopper August 31, 2012 This promo looks so bad ass, I hope the episodes are just as good as this teaser, I can’t remember the last time GH did a location shoot, so I’m pretty excited for this Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 August 31, 2012 The worst part is “Following The Chew”. What a stupid name and a remind of Brian Frons! Log in to Reply david46208 August 31, 2012 Not a bad promo. Great production values. Log in to Reply Yoryla August 31, 2012 Wow, this promo looks really good! It’s very primetime. And the Sonny thing doesn’t bother me a bit, because the show has had such a good balance lately! We haven’t been overloaded with Sonny, so yes, bring him on Good work FV & RC ! Log in to Reply doctormo77 August 31, 2012 I agree, the promo looks hot! It gives me chills (in a good way) like Guza’s sweeps promos (when Guza was in his prime). The Frank and Ron haters just need to quit. They know it is go big or go home time! Also, Sonny narrating the promo makes sense; Jerry is a threat to everyone especially Sonny’s baby mommas. Log in to Reply titi2289 August 31, 2012 And of course everything is about Sonny again,i ain’t gonna watch it. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 August 31, 2012 Looks awesome!!!! Log in to Reply JasamForever August 31, 2012 This looks AMAZING!!! This is the GH I like and love. Love Sonny in gangsta mode. This will actually tune me into watch live! Log in to Reply pumpkin August 31, 2012 We will see. On twitter NLG said she is filming stuff with I think she said five hunky guys. I am paraphrasing what she tweeted but I am guessing she is playing huge part in this story. Plus the guys of course. I will be happy if Carly stays away. Time for others to shine. These are just my guesses but I am anxious to see what is in store. I am a fan of the writing of this team so I am a little biased. Log in to Reply robertscorpio August 31, 2012 Can all the GH haters just go watch one of the other subpar soaps. This promo is for the GH fans and supporters. Keep it up, RC and FV!!!! Log in to Reply david46208 August 31, 2012 @doctormo77: I’m a hater! But I like the promo. Call me Statler of Statler and waldorf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14njUwJUg1I Log in to Reply Angie Lucy August 31, 2012 I like it. This looks like the GH I used to know. Action-packed and more balanced. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan August 31, 2012 I know Sonny sucks, but the promo looks good. Log in to Reply MadDogLane August 31, 2012 Why does Maurice overact all the freaking time? It’s gotten ridiculous Log in to Reply js3557 August 31, 2012 That looks great! Reminds me of the Puerto Rico story with Sonny and Brenda. Log in to Reply samIShot August 31, 2012 I noticed in today’s explanation of the dead man’s hand, Jerry mentioned that AJ Quartermaine helped him steal the cards. Maybe this leads to AJ being alive as part of this storyline. Maybe AJ had Jerry take Alan to help save his life? Ron loves to write back stories and take storylines from the past and use them to get into WAY more detail…. We all want AJ and Alan back! Log in to Reply days4ever August 31, 2012 This looks awesome to me! As long as Nancy Lee Grahn is front and center I am happy. Log in to Reply BellaDonna August 31, 2012 As much as I dislike Jerry, I’d become a Jerry FF if he’d just take out Sonny once and for all, and then add in Cujo for good measure. At least it’s not Jason coming to the rescue for once, but since this is Jerry who’s wreaking havoc again, it should be Jax who rides in and saves the day. Log in to Reply Divatude58 August 31, 2012 That promo looks freaking awesome…and not just that but it looks freaking interesting. It makes sense that Sonny will be the narrator because, whether you love it or hate it, he is THE lead on that show. That’s his town. And as the premiere mobster, he is the only one allowed to terrorize the people in it. LOL. Log in to Reply thecourt99 August 31, 2012 [quote=liason4real]Sigh.

Color me impressed! Outside location shoots! Cars! Gun fights! Speed boats! Explosions! This looks awesome. The production quality is incredible. GH actually looks like some primetime action show. Well done, Ron Carvalati & Frank Valentini! Log in to Reply Marcelle September 1, 2012 I’m not even a fan of Sonny, LOL, but that was a great promo. Those location shots look excellent. I also LOVE how basically the entire cast is being utilized. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott September 1, 2012 Kind of reminds me of when they shot in Puerto Rico during the Labine/Riche days. :beer: Log in to Reply BigFan September 1, 2012 GREAT!!!! I love it when Sonny goes Gangsta. After all he is a gangster. I agree that we probably don’t want to see it all the time but Sonny deserves a storyline too. Let those who don’t like the Sonny storylines go join Y & R or maybe even some other TV station that doesn’t have soaps. We love Sonny. Long live GH!!!!!!! Log in to Reply Clifford September 1, 2012 DAMN….me likey! September looks like a great month of GH watching! Bring it!! Log in to Reply GHvetfan September 1, 2012 I wish I had video for that. It sounded OK. Log in to Reply AHeart4Fiction September 1, 2012 As long as I’ve been watching GH (which I haven’t in a while) I’ve never seen a live shot…never. If I wasn’t in classes I would watch live but I’ll definitely watch soapnet the night of. Log in to Reply The_Moustache September 1, 2012 where is J Bernard Jones? i want to hear her thoughts!!

Log in to Reply prenest September 1, 2012 I’m excited GH finally got a PR person first I see news of Steve Burton leaving GH on the front page of msn.com and now a promo on etonline.com wow has to be the most mainstream press they have received in years.

Once gain little Sonny is about to pull out his big gun :Sp[/quote] I would love for someone to put together a video montage of all the times Little Sonny has pulled out his Big Gun and waved it around, making threats. It would be hysterical!! He is the most ineffectual mobster alive. When was the last time he actually shot someone? Carly, in the head, while in labor? This promo is stupid. Sonny should have NO part in this storyline, so why is the promo all about him?

Ha Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones September 1, 2012 ” Is it possible, is it even conceivable, that you’ve confused me with that gang of backward children you play tricks on?” Log in to Reply TV Gord September 2, 2012 That’s a very good promo! Now, they need to blanket ABC Prime Time with it. If they don’t, then soap fans can rightfully accuse the network of not doing everything the could to save the show. They also need to buy ads in magazines such as Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 September 2, 2012 Tsk, tsk, TV Gord. What? ABC D promoting a soap opera?! I can just hear some of the suits (Anne Sweeney, talking about you), saying “Why on earth do we have to do any of that nonsense?” If you want to save at least partial face as well as your a** sittin’ in a nice comfy executive chair, you’ll grit your teeth and promote the h**l out of it. ‘Cause it just might be integral to saving your job after the lousy decisions you’ve made from your lofty position. To say nothing of the absolutely reeking replacement shows you’ve helped greenlight… 0:) Log in to Reply monica186 September 2, 2012 I thought it was exciting and reminds me of the promos from the old days when Laura was constantly in peril and Luke was the action hero. Maybe it will draw back some of the old school old viewers. Let’s hope the show lives up to the promo! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott September 2, 2012 Good one J. Bernard. I love George in that. One of my favorite movies! :beer: Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
