It’s an opportunity for us to delight, entertain, and surprise people on a daily basis. The joy is to have an audience who has watched the show for 60 years; they’re now watching with their kids and grandkids.”

He continued, “Because the stories are on, on a daily basis, they just become a part of people’s lives — and that’s the goal of ABC. We’re very committed to the show. You saw the way that we celebrated the 60th [anniversary with General Hospital: 60 Years of Stars and Storytelling]. We do that because it’s a show we’re very proud of. We remain deeply committed to General Hospital.”
