Luke & Laura married on November 16, 1981. The event was watched by 30 million viewers and remains the highest-rated hour in American soap opera history.
I’m reading a book called Dr. Knowledge Presents – Strange & Fascinating Facts About Famous Brands.
An entry caught my attention:
Why They’re Called Soap Operas
It was popular, and soon other soap brands decided to sponsor the same kind of show. The airwaves because full of afternoon dramas aimed at a predominately female audience. The phrase “soap operas” entered the language to describe these soap-sponsored programs.
While we’re on the topic, if you watch General Hospital answer this….
A couple of years ago when Laura came out of her coma she and Luke got remarried. Everyone thought it was a farce because Luke was married to Tracy Quartermaine. Now that it’s come out that Luke & Tracy were not really married, it makes me think – he is really married to Laura now isn’t he? He can’t marry Tracy without getting a divorce from Laura. Am I remembering things correctly?
Do you watch soap operas? If so, which one?
