Tyler Christopher has been put on contract at ABC’s General Hospital, where earlier this year he returned to the role of soulful prince Nikolas Cassadine — and thus a darker cloud now looms over ABC Family’s on-the-bubble The Lying Game.Tyler Christopher General Hospital Contract

“It took us a few months to work out the details, but I signed last week,” Christopher told Soap Opera Digest of his new GH status. “I love the show and I’m having a great time.”

Alas, a steadier presence on the daytime drama would seem to allow Christopher precious little time to reprise his role as The Lying Game‘s lawman Dan — who was of central importance to one of the winter finale’s main mysteries — if the ABC Family drama was on the renewal track.

As of Tuesday, the cabler’s official response remained the same: “No decision has been made about additional episodes.” (Technically, they have until July 15 to make the call.) TLG‘s future, like that of Bunheads, likely will be determined by the success (or lack thereof) of ABCF’s two brand-new offerings, The Fosters and Twisted.

The Lying Game‘s Season 2A averaged 1.3 million total viewers, with 500,000 falling in the cabler’s Adults 18-34 sweet spot. The Twisted series premiere did 1.6 mil/510K, while The Fosters‘ latest episode drew 1.7 mil/480K. In other words, ABC Family’s new series are putting up comparable demos while delivering 20 percent larger audiences. One insider tells TVLine that Twisted currently has the edge in being TLG‘s possible successor.
