TV: Jon Snow is Alive, Kelly and Michael Win Daytime Emmy, So Does “General Hospital”


Lots happened on TV tonight and in the TV world:

The biggest surprise: Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan won Best Talk Show hosts. Just as they’re splitting! LOL! Now what will they say? And will Strahan ever win another Emmy?

On HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Jon Snow is alive! The worst kept secret in history is over. Kit Harington never left. He had no place to go. Everyone lied, but it didn’t count because it’s not TV, it’s HBO. It’s also pretend life. Welcome back, Jon!

“General Hospital” won Best Daytime Drama. Why not? It’s pretty good. There are only three others, and two of them are really bad. Their directing team also won, and one of their actors, Tyler Christopher, won Best Actor.

“The Good Wife” had a great scene between Julianna Margulies and Michael J. Fox. Chris Noth gave a great speech.
