Michael Muhney Jumping Over To General Hospital? – Report

Michael Muhney Jumping Over To General Hospital? - Report

It has been a long month for the fans of Michael Muhney. First they learned that their favorite actor from The Young and the Restless was the next cast member to be fired and then they quickly realized that his ousting was due to allegations of sexual harassment. The weeks between Muhney’s announcement that he was done with the show and now have been filled with petitions, backlash and talk of a serious boycott once the actor’s final scenes air on Jan. 30th. The fans went from demanding that Muhney be rehired to thanking their lucky stars that he was gone from the network that so badly handled the situation and managed to disrespect everyone up to and including their viewers while trying to save face.

So what is next for Muhney? I mean we’ve established that he has a huge, loyal fan base but let’s be serious here – the man has a family to take care of. He needs to work again at some point and his fans certainly don’t want to see his career die because of allegations by a coworker, right? Well, rumor has it that General Hospital is very interested in bringing Muhney to Port Charles. Apparently the alphabet network is the brightest of the bunch and realizes how valuable he is in a variety of ways. Also at this point, the allegations are simply that so they would be willing to give him a chance on their set.

Think about it. Michael Muhney would actually be a perfect addition to the mob underworld that is front and center on GH because he obviously plays dark characters very well. Plus, it is Jill Farren Phelps who ousted him from Y&R and before she was running that show into the ground she was wreaking havoc on GH. She left Port Charles in shambles and also persuaded Steve Burton, one of GH’s most popular actors to follow her to Genoa City. Believe me when I tell you that GH wouldn’t mind welcoming Muhney and his very vocal fans into their fold. If anyone wants to see Y&R’s ratings tank more than Muhney’s fans it would have to be GH’s powers-that-be!

Bringing Muhney onto the Port Charles canvas might be one of the best moves in daytime history, don’t you think? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    If Muhney would ever decide to go to another soap, General Hospital makes the most sense. They’d be foolish not to bring him to Port Charles.

  • Lynne Stanton

    AWESOME!!! I’ll be SSSOOOO there with him!!

  • Debra White

    GH bring him on, he has so much talent. #TeamMuhney!

  • Pamela Schreck Blank

    I look forward to watching Muhney wherever he goes and the new show can count me in as a viewer. My days of the Y&R are very limited till the end of this month without him.

  • Elizabeth Waddell

    I will go with him…

  • Carol R

    I agree 100%! Michael Muhney is a very talented actor and would be a great addition to GH.
    CBS and certain cast members of Y & R don’t respect they fans and we won’t except that anymore.
    Hope you are right.

  • Paula

    Packing my bags for Port Charles!

  • tara

    I’m so there!!!

  • Maria Ferraro Waters

    That would be great!!! I need a new favorite show since JFP ruined Y&R. GH would be so great with MM on the show.

  • Sandra

    I don’t watch general hospital but I definitely would to see MM!! :)

  • Henrietta Boyd

    Oh hell yea but their better be some good writing cause this man dont need no crap stories NO BABY DRAMA PLEASE!!

  • Linda Simpson

    If Michael had a regular role on General Hospital, I would watch it. That is a long time role!

  • Linda Simpson

    Is this something that Michael would want to do ?? If it is, I’m in.

  • http://sojustlikethat.wordpress.com/ omg

    and you know this, how?

  • April Lewis-Askren

    OMG He could so be Jason, that would be awesome!!!!!

  • lucy2010

    I’d say yes, but only if he’s allowed to do outside projects occasionally. I think he is far too talented an actor to be confined to a soap opera career. Even though I only saw the Liz Taylor episode of GH (I think that was GH) decades ago, at least we’d still get to watch him most every day in the interim.

  • Sher

    I have not watched any SOAP other than Y & R (and that is coming to an end), but will definitely star doing so, should Michael Muhney be given a role – anyone who hires him is a shrewd business person

  • ginger

    looks like I will follow him to GH, no more Y&R for me after Jan 30

  • Linda Simpson

    If Michael wants to move to Port Charles, Team Muhney will be right there with him.

  • Linda Simpson

    I used to watch General Hospital years ago. If Michael decides to join the Cast, I will watch but hopefully they would give him a good role and on camera alot. We like our good boy/bad boy, that is what makes him so endearing to us ladies!

  • Sam I AM

    I have said that from the beginning. I would LOVE to see him on GH. Such sweet, sweet victory that would be for MM and the his fans. Y&R is finally put to rest while GH becomes the #1 show in daytime. Disrespect the fans loyalty and we can quickly become loyal to your competition. I pray this is true.

  • guest

    I hope the “powers that be” at GH are reading all of these comments!! Their show could be on the way to #1!
    As for Y&R: You reap what you sow.

  • Nancy

    I have been a loyal Young and the Restless viewer since the show began but I am really upset that Billy Miller and Michael Muhney have left and would not hesitate to
    switch to General Hospital should Michael Muhney join the cast. I have already removed Y&R from my daily
    recording list effective January 30th and would not hesitate to add GH should Michael Muhney join the show.

    I am a highly educated mother of three and I really looked forward to coming home from work and watching Michael
    Muhney as Adam Newman. Not only because he is a superb actor, but because he is able to play such a multidimensional character so perfectly. He is just the right amount of devil and angel and his scenes always keep me interested. I am pretty sure the powers that be on Y&R have underestimated his fans intelligence and loyalty and also the size and passion of his fan base.

    I don’t believe for one minute that he groped Hunter Kings breasts and not one person has come forward to back up
    this allegation. Some reporters are saying that some actors on the show are backing Hunter however if you read
    their comments and tweets they are merely asking people to stop harassing her and sending her hateful tweets and messages. I agree with them because no one deserves to receive hate or harassment via social media, or anywhere for that matter! I think both she and Michael Muhney are the victims here. I do believe that perhaps Michael has an ego, but he most certainly wasn’t the only one on the show guilty of that. I can also easily imagine him and Eric Braeden bumping heads which would upset anyone who might witness it.

    I have seen a video on youtube of Hunter King skydiving and in this video her top was revealing and her breasts
    were bouncing around and bulging out of her top. The video was about her skydiving experience yet if you read the comments 99% of them were commenting on her bust. Her breasts seem to be a popular choice for conversation and comments and the obsession of many, including TMZ. I have also read that she had a crush on her father on the show Joshua Morrow, my guess is she also had one on Michael Muhney and perhaps she made improper advances towards him. The thing is, we
    probably won’t ever know and we shouldn’t speculate, but accusing and condemning a man for something that he didn’t do is wrong on so many levels. I think that this is what has got his fans so passionate about standing up for him to begin with. I find it kind of ironic that Jeanne Cooper was known for grabbing the behinds of many a male cast mate. She herself admitted it and several of the male actors did as well.

    So in answer to your question, yes I would definitely watch GH if they hired Michael Muhney. I know I speak for many when I say that his talent is an asset to any show, soap opera or prime time. I certainly hope that the rumors are true.

  • Trish

    GH would be crazy not to bring MM on board, while there at it, it would be nice to snatch up Billy Miller as well. GH would be much see TV, cus I would definitely tune in to watch.

  • Fabienne

    I have never watched General hospital.But strangely, I had a peek at it today.If Michael Muhney is hired by GH, this will definitely be my new show.GH can count me as a new
    viewer.That’s just how popular MM is!

  • Sylvia Gillis

    Yes, after 40 yrs of watching Y&R, I won’t watch anymore after 1/30/14. If GH hires Michael Muhney, I will watch GH. It will be difficult to get into at first but, Michael, Maura West & maybe Billy Miller will be worth the effort. It would be a brilliant move for GH, practically assuring them of becoming #1.MM is the best & as far as me breaking my Y&R habit, as Michelle Stafford once said in my presence, “I’m so out of here”

  • Joshua Knight

    Michael Muhney being Fired & Screwed over by CBS/SONY/JFP is nothing but a mistake for Y&R! Why would Muhney even agree to return after all of that.Not to mention his own cast turning against him.Muhney is a Great Actor and deserves way Better! I have Never watched General Hospital.But if Muhney lands in Port Charles so will i

  • studio33128

    Many of the best actors are pains in the ass…Hoffman, Hackman, Beatty, Streep, Grant, and many of them were fired at some point as well. “Real” actors fight for their craft instead of just cash a check. In the end, they are respected for not selling out! Muhney is right in there with them!

  • studio33128

    It’s been a long time since I watched GH, I think Luke and Laura were the hot couple. But if they bring Michael Muhney to Port Charles, I will start watching GH all over again. My DVR is poised to record. BRING MICHAEL MUHNEY TO GENERAL HOSPITAL!

  • studio33128

    News Flash: Thousands upon thousands of fans follow Michael Muhney to General Hospital, declaring Port Charles their new home!!!! We can actually make this happen.

  • vickie

    great news I havent watched general hospital since Luke and Laura days I would tune back in and dumpY&R

  • Cheryl

    I would jump from Y&R to GH for this too. Tired of repetitive stories on Y&R, Victor wins everything, everyone else is pawn and suffers second rate storylines to this dictator. Tired looking retirement age couples still trying to be lead, geeky middle set, untalented newbs I am not interested in. Who wants to see that? Long time Y&R viewer checking out. ABC would be very smart to give MM a shot, I think MM is just waiting for dust to settle and he will be somewhere else. Lift your game Y&R or u won’t be no 1 much longer.

  • Fashaw

    Too bad I don’t like GH.

    I think they laughed because that’s how ridiculous it is. HK’s parents may have tried to get MM out if his job. But it boils down to have their been other comments/reports against him. Stop and think for a second instead of defending him. If he didn’t do it. You do know he could sue HK for false allegations, harassment, being fired while under contract the list goes in. not to mention CBS. Sony. P&G and who else? And if there were no other allegations against him. He’d win. But I don’t see that happening. I see him waking away quietly and looking for work elsewhere.

    read what I posted… it speaks volumes…

  • edwina lee

    Works for me.

  • Michelle

    Quit drinking the koolaid Rick Hearst ws hired on to GH NOT MM..

  • xy&rfan

    I think the idea of MM going to GH would be an excellent idea on many fronts! The primary reason is that they would be getting a top rated and actor and we would be able to see him daily on screen! Regardless of how Y&R and cast/CBS/Sony have disrespected MM and the fans, we do matter! To once again to be watching a show that appreciates their fans and treats their cast well would be a welcome change that we have recently been exposed to. We could do without the off the show, behind the scenes back stabbing, back biting and disrespect. To once again enjoy good writing, with great acting, Michael, Maura, and Nancy Grahn to mention a few would be something that we the disrespected from Y&R truly deserve. The countdown to 1/30 continues…..
