Watch Anna Comfort Lulu on General Hospital! (BONUS VIDEO)




Lulu Falconeri (Emme Rylan) endured every mother's nightmare this week on ABC Daytime's General Hospital. The baby created by one of Lulu and her husband's stole embryos was kidnapped at dagger point by his faux großmutter!

Sorry, Lesley Lu. Dr. Spock never wrote a chapter on how to contend with a scenario such as this. Hell, I don't even think Mr. Spock would be of any help!

Lucky for Lulu, Port Charles Police Commish Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) knows a thing or three about having a child in jeopardy. Watch Anna and Lulu bond over babynappings in a bonus scene from GH after the jump! READ MORE

Days of Our Lives and General Hospital Grab Younger Eyeballs




Younger women can't seem to get enough of diabolical, embryo-snatching physicians and/or a trio of multigenerational Midwestern women attempting to drown a sociopath in a lake. According to a new report from Variety, both General Hospital and Days of Our Lives have seen spikes among younger female viewers over the previous year!  

From the article:

“General Hospital,” for example, has grown from last year by 9% in total viewership (to 3.32 million) but it’s also up by 19% in women 25-54 and by 11% among those 12-34, according to Nielsen. As a result, its median age of 55.5 for the current season is down from 56.1 a year ago.

“Days of Our Lives” is up 10% (to about 3 million viewers), but its biggest gains are among females 12-34; its median age of 57.8 is nearly one full year lower than last year.

“My first day on set he [Burton] came to me and was like, ‘Hey man. You’re playing Stitch, We’re war buddies. Let’s get to know each other.’ And the rest is history," said Carrigan of how he and the soap superstar first bonded. "He’s been amazing from the first day I started, and that’s why I’m still here on the show.” READ MORE
