ABC’s General Hospital (GH) happens to be one of those soap operas that seems to have been on the air forever. And, to its credit, this soap has never been afraid of diving into some serious and timely social issues. The show revolves around the many trials and tribulations of a fictional town called Port Charles, including the hospital staff at General Hospital, as well as some mobsters, too. In addition, GH has definitely told a number of the greatest love stories that daytime drama has ever seen throughout the more than 50 years that it has been on TV. Who could ever forget Luke and Laura? And, before the amazingly talented Jonathan Jackson was a country singer on “Nashville”, he was the sexy Lucky Spencer on GH.
The soap premiered on on April 1, 1963, on ABC and then became the longest-running soap opera that Hollywood ever produced plus being the longest-running entertainment show in ABC TV history. In addition, GH still holds the all-time record for Outstanding Drama Series Daytime Emmy Awards wins.

Griffin is growing more and more frustrated with Valentin as Ava begins facing a serious moral dilemma and shows once again that she’s her own worst enemy.
