  1. Yep, GH fans really want Franco on the show a lot more than Monica and Alan Quartermaine or Bobby Spencer or Anna Devane....

    Franco really brought a lot of viewers to the show, too.


    I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale. Anyone interested?

  2. Franco is my favorite character in the shows history. And I have been watching for over 20 years.. He is totally nuts and super crazy. Plus, one of the best looking people in the world. General Hospital can do and has done way worse. I like that a famous actor is working on daytime, good for him. CO77X
