Days Of Our Lives

NBC says it's sticking with DAYS for now!

At today’s Television Critics Association panel for NBC in Los Angeles, Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, addressed the future of the only soap on the peacock network, Days of our Lives.

Greenblatt said, “At the moment, we are happy with its performance. I think it will be on for a while.  Talk about aging shows.  My hat is off to them as they creatively keep these things going. It is the only soap that we have. I think it does relatively well for us.”

According to theHollywoodknow. who also attended the TCA’s, Greenblatt stated for all the cast changes at Days,  that the network had not dictated any of those. “None of those changes have been at our request,” he said.

As to whether or not he thinks the soap might pick up additional audience once the two ABC shows air their finales, he says, “I  think you might be right that some of these [soaps] going away may open up an audience. You may also be seeing this genre going into the twilight years with all the other talks shows and games shows [coming up].”

This show is on it’s way out as well, lack of diversity on soaps are so out right now. Most people are tired of seeing the same type of people get all the intriging story lines while others are used as back ground post.

Well, I for one am not sticking with Days! I’m getting tired of characters being fired, written off only to have them brought back a year or two later. I grew up on the CBS soaps and I really can’t remember this happening there. This is not what this fan wants. September 22 will be the last episode of Days that I will ever watch again. Sorry, Days! SEE YA!!!

To me, the majority of the talk shows are people moaning and groaning about something or promoting something they are doing. That’s not an escape on every day life…Soaps have lasted because people work hard and soaps allow people a chance to relax and watch characters that have been a part of their lives for such a long time. Talk shows are going to get OLD as more and more networks try and replicate the ones that are already on TV. Then, after they have cancelled their soaps, they are going to be scrambling to figure out what to put… Read more »
