The Highest Rated Soap Opera Episode of All Time

The highest rated soap opera episode ever was a highly anticipated wedding between General Hospital's mega couple Luke and Laura, played by Anthony Geary and Genie Francis. 30 million viewers- a staggering total for daytime- viewed the wedding, which was attended by Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor, who played villainess Helena Cassidine. The mega event took place on November 17, 1981 during sweeps month, of course.

This week, Anthony Geary said goodbye to the soap after a phenomenal run.
