UPDATE: Due to a White House press conference on December 18, the encore episode originally slated for Thursday, December 24, was aired in those markets not impacted by the pre-emption.
The episode originally slated to air Friday will now air Monday, December 21, and in order to stay on schedule for the new year, a new episode will now air on Christmas Eve. Because the episodes will be bumped a day for that week, the Wednesday episode will now air on Thursday. There will still be no new episode on Friday, December 25.
Even doctors and mobsters need a day off!
On New Year's Day, GENERAL HOSPITAL will be pre-empted, but on New Year's Eve, you can enjoy a Port Charles flashback with encore airings of a classic episode.
On Thursday, December 31, enjoy the GH episode from earlier in December when Patrick confronts Sam about her unresolved feelings, Jason puts Liz at ease, Hayden's confession shocks Nikolas and Carly and Michael receive advice on how to help Morgan.
