POLL: Which Show Would You Like To See Eileen Davidson On?

GH Takes on Real-Time Format

Well, the cat is out of the bag. The "innovative storytelling technique" that "GH" will be employing for February Sweeps is real-time format. "GH" will tell its story in 16 one-hour-long episodes -- one for every weekday in Sweeps plus the episode that kicked off the story on January 26th.

"This story is an exciting, emotional roller-coaster told like never before in daytime history," said Brian Frons, president, Daytime, Disney-ABC Television Group.

"This is a very exciting time for General Hospital, as we are continually looking for ways to raise the bar in how we produce a daily drama," added executive producer Jill Farren Phelps. "This is an interesting and captivating way to tell a story that will expertly intertwine all of the show's characters together."

So don't miss a moment of it. Or should I say, a real-time hour of it!

Eileen Davidson Scoop

You "kinda" heard it here first. While, I am not at liberty to tell all the details, YET, I can tell you that I'm going to end all speculation that Eileen Davidson (ex-Ashley, "Y&R") might be coming back to "Days" as Kristen Blake.

She won't. At least not in the foreseeable future.

But she has just signed a contract to join another daytime drama. Soon. Only I can't tell you which one. Yet. I'm interviewing her later this week to get the scoop for my Daytime Dial interview column. And when I'm allowed to spill the beans, you'll be the first to hear.

Stay tuned! (And fwd this to your friends!)
