POP is the renamed tv guide cable channel…call your cable provider and tell them you want POP…the channel, not coke or pepsi…lol

Jimh..
POP is a rerun channel, the programming is bottom of the barrel and not worth paying for lol
you can watch the soaps on their internet network and other places including DVRing them, recording, or On Demand and others..
No need to pay for POP to watch your soap … 🙂

su0000: Pop is a general entertainment channel but it does offer some really neat original programming (Schitt’s Creek, Big Brother After Dark, frequent entertainment specials) and marathons for Survivor, The Amazing Race and a number of CW shows. 😀

I have Comcast..
POP is on a high pay tier ..
I’m not going to put out $$$$ (to go higher up) to have POP .. lol
POP is a low budget rerun channel that also shows now 2 soaps that I can watch online 7/24
((I believe they are also on – on demand ..

If your cable provider has an ala-carte package, you can just order a smaller number of channels that you’d intend to subscribe and watch,

Anyone know if it’s available on Direct TV?

Hi, Julie.
Pop is on Directv Channel 273 but it is only available in some of the higher priced packages.
Wish Pop would now add General Hospital even though I don’t currently have it in my economy package.
I still miss Soapnet and wish some channel(s) would air classic soaps from the past like Santa Barbara (my all-time favorite), Another World, As The World Turns and One Life To Live.

Yeah it’s on my Direct TV.

IA with whoever said that Pop has become the new Soapnet, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so glad to see Pop value soap operas and re-air classic primetime shows from the ’80s and ’90s. As for DOOL, I can’t wait for all the returning vets, and now it will be easier to watch!

This is why DAYS is no longer available on Hulu.

Since downgraded on Direct TV no longer can get POP. So watch Days on Hulu if miss it during the day, but episode is not until next day. Days doesn’t show on Hulu Plus on TV, have to go to hulu.com on computer which then switches over to NBC.com I noticed when it plays. Although I pay to not have commercials on Hulu Plus, on the internet version that switches over to NBC.com have to put up with the stupid commercials. Don’t think that is fair at all. Think heard NBC is the one that controls this.

I for one am very excited by this news! it would be even more terrific if they air a 50 hour marathon of days like soap net did for general hospital on their 50th

I wish GH would be broadcast on POP along with the other 3 remaining soaps. POP is affiliated with CBS so it’s unlikely, but it would be great especially with all the breaking news interrupting daytime programming.

Julie

I agree!

With Days coming, an NBC show, maybe GH will follow soon. One can hope!

You can tape it on DVR I do that every day most cable companys will give you one or charge a small fee theres so many things to tape

Julie

Wow! That’s great news! Wish they would add GH & old episodes of AMC & OLTL. I have always often thought it would be great to rerun a series from the very beginning. For those of us too young to remember or had to work during years prior to the invention of recording devices! It’s like losing a chunk of memory… I started watching in high school around the time Luke raped Laura on GH…1979ish…along came adulthood, marriage, babies, jobs & couldn’t watch. Started watching again off & on over the years, have been watching faithfully again since no longer working 2005/6ish & I get so frustrated when a storyline has ties or reference to the past of episodes & characters I never got to see! Anyway, that’s my opinion & I hope PopTV considers adding the ABC soaps to its nightly line up like the old SOAP channel, would be great for the entire genre!!!

On Dish Network, POP is channel 117. It does carry some original programming. One of my favorites, the Canadian comedy “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, is on the network. It also aired “Queens of Drama,” a “reality” show about former daytime divas trying to put together a new soap for the CW. Donna Mills headed the cast. Right now, as a CBS-owned network, it broadcasts “Big Brother After Dark” most nights, which I think is the most god-awful thing on television but to each his or her own!

Is “Pop TV” available on streaming devices such as RoKu?
On RoKu I get Netflix, Hulu + and Amazon but of course there is a monthly charge for those.
Does anyone know if Pop TV is available in this manner?

This is great news. I have Pop and now I have a reason to watch it now that Days will be on there. And great timing since the show now has the new head writers’ stories airing and the anniversary coming up!

Well they aren’t marketing this very well because it took going to Hulu to watch, finding out I was being diverted to NBC.com, then just being curious enough to find out why and searching Google until I found this article on the 3rd result page. I’m worried because I have a busy enough life that I can’t watch the show every day and Hulu was great for that. I would binge watch several episodes even up to the point of the episode that was leaving the site. Will there still be several episodes on the website? Will my On Demand have several episodes on Pop? I’ve always wanted NBC to have several episodes on their On Demand.

I never understood why TV networks, such as Pop or SoapNet, broadcast same-day episodes. Doesn’t everyone have at least a VCR, a DVR, or Internet access to watch those episodes on their respective network Web sites?

I agree with others that it would be more entertaining to show older episodes of these and other shows. If it was soap operas, I would love to see classic episodes of shows that aren’t on anymore, or older episodes of shows currently still on the air. (Wouldn’t it have been fun to watch 50 classic episodes of Days of our Lives to celebrate its 50 year anniversary?)

If not soap operas, there are plenty of other shows that would be great to see on TV again, that were important parts of pop culture over the years. Murphy Brown? Miami Vice? Sure there are many others.

However, we don’t need to see shows that are already on other networks. How many networks have to show the Golden Girls and act like they are “the” network to rebroadcast these episodes?

I LOVE IT. I HAD BEEN WATCHING DAYS ONLINE ON HULU AND THEY JUST RECENTLY TOOK IT OFF OF HULU AND HAD TO START WATCHING AGAIN ON THE NBC WEBSITE, WHICH BY THE WAY WAS NOT SAME DAY AS IT AIRED. PLEASE KEEP IT AS PART OF THE LINEUP. I HAVE TO WORK AND I LOVE IT WATCHING IT ON ACTUAL TV INSTEAD OF THE COMPUTER.

You can watch it on xfinity demand if you have that. Most of the time I watch it on my iPad or iPhone.

Just want to add I did see the show today during it’s air time at 1 – I may be the only person, but I liked the Rafe/Hope scenes. Perhaps, anything is better than the murder, ugly, dark scenes they have been showing.

Also, Chad was outstanding when he was crying and said good bye to Abby – so realistic, heartfelt, and true emotion. Show was better today than I have seen Ina long time. Keep the romance coming – stay away from murder, violence, meanness.

Blanche McKinney

Please, please restore the showing of Days of Our Lives. I am not watching any of the other things you have put on in its place. I can’t always watch the show during the day, and I really appreciated having it on your channel in the evenings.

Why did POP stop carrying Days of Our Lives? Not everyone can be home during the day. My first blame was COMCAST.. They are getting too big and too expensive
. Can’t POP work something out with them for evening (daily reruns?) It certainly makes one keep looking around for new carriers and user friendly networks.

Thanks for your consideration.

Will Jackée Harry Find Herself In Salem and Days of our Lives?

From out-of-a-tweet from Grammy night come a part for TV and film star, Jackée Harry on Days of our Lives?

As CBS aired the Recording Academy’s annual kudofest, Harry sent out a tweet with a side-by-side image of Grammy icon, Bonnie Raitt, next to DAYS’ Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).

Harry, who is known for her humor and wit in her tweets, expressed: “Has Bonnie Raitt been moonlighting as Maggie from Days of 0ur Lives for the past 20 years?

Jackée, who started her TV career on Another World as Lily Mason, and eventually played Sandra Clark on the sitcom 227, and various other signature roles, next received a tweet in response to hers from DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati.

The head scribe expressed: “No, Bonnie is obviously Maggie’s evil twin. The real question is, when is Sandra Clark going to come visit Salem?

Next, an excited Harry sent back: “Ha!!!! I would LOVE to play with the DOOL cast, Ron.”

On Monday, Carlivati tweeted a GIF of a game show moment with Jackee Family Feud style, that says “Name something you must have in order to live” The answer he tweeted: “A part on Days of our Lives?, Jackée Harry”

See the exchange below:

So, would you like to see Jackée in Salem? If so, what do you think would be a fun part for her to play? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.   

Photo: CBS

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

Photo: JPI

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

Courtesy.NBC

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

Courtesy/NBC

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.
