General Hospital airs on ABC. It's based in fictional Port Charles, New York.
The show is the longest-running daytime drama produced on Hollywood. It went to a full hour of airtime in 1978.
General Hospital is beloved for its action-paced plots that are quite different from the typical domestic and social issues that had been the sole focus of daytime dramas for decades.
A few years ago, when the series celebrated its 40th anniversary, TV Guide dubbed it "The Greatest Soap Opera of All-Time."
