Which soap will celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2023?

While a conference on the history of the soap is being held at Séries Mania on Monday, one of those series is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. And we know them less well in France.

And The Fires of Love For 50 years, CBS shines this year (and this month the series started on March 26, 1973), another soap celebrates its 60th anniversary a few days later on April 1st and it’s about that General Hospital. An important soap created by Frank Hursley and Doris Hursley to “surf” on the wave of success of the medical prime-time series, Ben Casey. In France, this series has tried several times to establish itself under the title central hospitalThen Alliances & Trahisons, but still unprogrammed. She’s a real institution in the US, holding the viewership record for a daytime soap opera 31 million viewers on November 16, 1981 to the wedding of Luke & Laura (almost at the same time, prime time, Dallas returned after the harrowing cliffhanger about the attempted murder of JR).
As of March 31, 2023, the day before her birthday, the series will have 15,198 episodes.
