General Hospital’s Bob Guza Jr Out As Head Writer?

March 18, 2011

OMG I really hope all the rumors the General Hospital’s head writer Bob Guza, Jr is out as head writer is nothing but a hoax. This could be disastrous news for GH fans if the man that has penned the show for over a decade really is leaving.

General Hospital  s Bradford Anderson

As a huge fan of the ABC soap opera General Hospital I can attest that head writer Bob Guza, Jr is so unbelievably talented. If he is in fact no longer going to be writing the hit show it makes me nervous about the future of my favorite soap opera. The acting on the show is outstanding there is no doubt about that. However it is the amazing writing that gives the actors such great material to work with and that is thanks to Bob.

I realize I am just a loyal viewer but I have to wonder what the heck is going on over at GH. How can it be that the man who brought us such amazing stories as The Metro Court Hostage Crisis, The Train Crash, The Masquerade Ball at Windermere and crazy Franco could no longer be a part of the show? I was an avid watcher of GH back in the 80’s as a kid then sort of dropped it in the 90’s cause it was kind of blah but then in about 2005 my mom got me hooked again. I attribute it to the great story lines, well that and the super hot guys like Steve Burton and Maurice Bernard.

Like I said there is a lot of speculation that Guza is dunzo at the show, it was first reported by Soap Opera Digest. Don’t expect to get a straight answer from ABC at this time though as they have given the standard “no comment” on what is becoming a very hot topic in the daytime world. However literally minutes ago a GH rep said the Bob is not going anywhere, so who the heck knows what is going on.

I think I have made it pretty clear that losing Bob would be a huge mistake for GH but it isn’t really up to me now is it. I will of course still watch Luke and the rest of the residents of Port Charles even if the rumor does prove to be fact but I have my concerns that the show I have grown to love will just not be the same. That is my two cents now all you GH fans or non-fans give me yours.

    I hope is is leaving. he is the worst writer in the history of daytime tv! He is a hack that can’t complete a story to save his life. He has ruined all the vets on the show!

    I think that if he is fired it would probably have to do with this current story line of jake being killed and his kidneys being given to josslyn whom is battling stage 5 kidney
    cancer. I am not a big fan of this storyline at all and a lot of other comments that I have read are not very pleased either.

    Rachelle from – Were you out of your mind when you wrote that it would not be good for General Hospital if Guza was fired? It’s what most GH fans have been waiting for. The people that they have write these blogs are idiots in their own right and Rachelle from Rightcelebrity is no exception. Put your last name on the articles you write.

    The current Jake story line with Jake, I said Dont let the door hit you….The kid had ties to the Quartermaines which could had led to good storys through the yrs…These stories have gone to far..

    I have to agree… has anyone watched this show for more than 5 minutes? That storyline was BJ and Maxie 15 years ago. Bus crash, transplant. SOUND FAMILY GUZA??? Idiot can’t write a fluid non violent story to save his life. I WANT HIM OUT!

    If he had any say in rehiring Rebecca Herbst and dumping Ingo Rademacher, then good riddance to you, Bob. What a horrible mistake that was.

    Guza has overspent his time at GH. The stories are the most recycled, poorly thought out on daytime. Bob is good at “moments” but not at all with day to day stuff.

    GH Fan Says:

    Seriously? Did you actually write that it would be disastrous news for GH fans if he was gone? Do you actually watch the same show as the rest of us?
