Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Photo: ABC, CBS

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.

Nevertheless not great timing when the soaps are revving up their stories to make you tune-in for not-to-be missed episodes.

So, what are your thoughts on what the Impeachment hearings could mean for daytime dramas in in the weeks ahead? Comment below.

      I agree. The soaps are much more interesting than Trump. Half the time I don’t think he knows or understands what he is saying. He is always so long winded, I think he just likes listening to the soumd of his own voice

      The soaps are more important. We can hear all this on the news. Thats what the news is for. I hate soap getting took off now we miss it coz there is nowhere else to watch it. Yall should show soap some other time when talks from white house end. We want to see the soaps not news. We can see news at news time. Damn its on morning noon and night. Cant we watch our soaps too?

        ——Since– 1789..
        Two Presidents were Impeached:
        Andrew Johnson
        Bill Clinton
        (( both were later acquitted by the Senate.))

        Nixion resigned before he was to face prosecution.

        Trump being held to Impeachment, is a Serious deal.
        He is the 4th president since 1789 to be brought to impeachment= pre-mptions

    Other than DAYS, the three others can preempt and be back on calendar within 6-8 weeks. As DAYS shooting schedule is now 6 MONTHS ahead, preemptions are much more challenging.

    Luckily, the DAYS format never caught on with the other remaining shows. GH sometimes airs some scenes 2 weeks after their shot.

    Most people are working during the times these hearings air. Why not tape hearings for showing in the evening when most people are homes and leave daytime tv alone. I have no interest in watching the hearings and believe it’s a waste of taxpayer dollars $$$$$

    • Harry

      November 11, 2019 at 9:18 am

      I think the public needs to see the proceedings. It’s about upholding the constitution, protecting our Democracy and about checks and balances. No one, not even the corrupt orange one, is above the law. That said, I do wish the 3 Networks could figure out a way to stream the soaps.

      • Violet Lemm

        November 11, 2019 at 11:34 pm

        More like using and abusing the Constitution in yet another of umpteen tries to overturn an election simply because the left didn’t approve of the results. Even GH couldn’t come up with such a sorry spectacle as the absurd Adam-scripted “Schi#+Show” which is coming soon to daytime television, and THAT is saying a lot! Still, there’s no way that the ratings will compare to the “Clinton XXX soap opera” that simultaneously riveted and revolted those of us who were unfortunate enough to have witnessed that absolute obscenity of historical proportions which was actually based upon real crimes having been committed.

          Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to share it Shay. You’re certainly not shy with yours and neither am I. I fully support whomever is elected into office and there have been some I didn’t like but tolerated. Because they respected the office and both governing parties with decency. Trump however has used the office to lie, bully and profit from. And it’s NOT OK. The constant stream of name calling, press bashing and general caustic rhetoric has taken it’s toll. You can’t blatantly make on air statements and then pretend you never said something, repeatedly. He’s bad for democracy and the country in general. He covers his ignorance of governing with nastiness and fake outs. I’m over him. I tried hard to root for him and hope he’d change, but nothing doing. He needs to go. The sooner the better. He caused all of this himself. No one helped him arrive here because he won’t listen to them anyway. Over it. Over him. The man child.

            davlestev1…Trump’s been everything you described and much worse since the beginning and I applaud you for having an open enough mind and being informed enough to change your view.

            What’s sad and frightening is the amount of people who think the impeachment, the hearings…are a waste of time. People vote for someone, support someone, without being informed. I bet if you asked 90% of these people the definition of impeachment or why Trump is being impeached they wouldn’t know. The standard answer is, “because the dems lost and they just want to get him on something and they’re afraid he’s going to win again…” They literally have no idea why this is happening. And the logic is missing. If it was just a case of Republican vs Democrat there would be this chaos EVERY time a Repulican won. There isn’t.

            It’s frightening to think so many vote who have no desire to be informed. For all the cries of ‘fake news” they have the opportunity to watch and listen to testimony…not hear ‘about it” but actually hear it from both sides…but don’t want to. And, yet, they vote. And then those of us who ARE informed have to live with the consequences of an uneducated public.

            Oh, Rebecca1, thank you for saying this. Although I don’t believe this site should get deep into politics, I must admit that a lot of these posts frighten me. Why doesn’t anyone look at the facts? It’s not a partisan issue when a President admits that he wants foreign help to investigate a rival. Forget the quid pro quo. He ASKED for help ON CAMERA for everyone to see. How is that partisan? Anyway, I remember watching the Watergate and Iran Contra hearings and seem to remember, as another poster indicated, a rotating coverage among the networks. Much better system.

Didn’t realize the the different governmental agencies both within our country and throughout the world that are there to watch after our interests and keep up our relations with other countries. Very impressed with their professionalism and patriotism. Especially the ladies!

    This could be devastating to the TV soap opera genre. During the OJ Simpson trials, soaps lost legions of viewers who never came back. I am not sure why every network and cable news has to show the impeachment proceedings. I will watch the impeachment proceedings but I would also like to be able to DVR the soaps because for me, escapism is as important as upholding the constitution (now, more than ever). Can’t we have both? Pretty please?

    • Timmm

      November 11, 2019 at 9:08 am

      Harry, these networks dont give a crap about daytime! We have discussed this a couple different times. They do whats best for business. They dont care about loyal followers. Jerry Seinfeld said in numerous interviews if his showed would have premiered in this day and age, his show would have been cancelled. His number were atrocious in that shows first year. He said it took three seasons for it to find itself. The networks would NEVER roll the dice like that anymore. Soaps could have freshened up, used todays technology and had their own outlet but they stayed in the dark ages which puts them in a position to be stomped on!

    • rose

      November 11, 2019 at 11:12 pm

      Harry and Timmm…Geez, just when Anna has come back on GH. And JVParise (ex-Carlos on GH) just got his come-upance on Y&R. But I guess every network also wants to show how important they think these moments in time are for the sake of keeping our democracy intact. And while they can be tedious for the viewer, I think it is almost a civic duty. Just like voting. You make your own impression, get the full comments and not portions or spin from snippets on the news or “experts.” And they are probably not big money winners since there are no commercials from big pharma. So networks should be happy to have their soaps back onto a regular schedule. I for one watch them like the Kavanagh and Mueller ones, and feel lucky we still live in a country where there is the transparency in seeing these proceedings. It gives me a first hand measure of the men and women who question and are being questioned. And some of them are real jerks. Sometimes I pretend they remind me of some of our soap characters…like, well I’ll leave that up to you.

      Only in the Democrat-led House could there be this totally fabricated impeachment-themed “Kabuki Theatre” presentation targeting our president for doing his constitutionally-directed duty to investigate massive wrongdoing by a previous office holder when it was said subject (Biden) who ACTUALLY brazenly bragged and implicated himself on camera of committing the exact crime of which Trump has been falsely accused. Talk about living in a parallel universe…this truly is as surreal as it gets!

      • rebecca1

        November 21, 2019 at 10:45 pm

        Shay. Stop spreading “fake news”. The video of Biden “confessing” was excerpted and taken out of context and not the whole story.

        The Obama administration was fighting corruption in the Ukraine and was asked by US embassy officials to withhold one billion in loans until the Ukraines cracked down on corruption. In fact, Obama and Biden wanted a Ukranian prosecutor to investigate the company Hunter Biden worked for, who only hired Hunter (Biden’s son), unbeknownst to Hunter, so they could appear honest. It was found out the Ukranian prosecutor was corrupt which is why he refused to investigate, and he was ousted. Biden’s son was guilty of nothing. Nor was VP Biden.

        So…VP Biden was instructed to withold aide until Ukranian corruption was ferreted out…unlike Trmp,, who KNOWS the Bidens were innocent, but wanted to cast doubt on Biden for the upcoming Pres election…so for his own personal gain (to discredit Biden) not for the coumtry but his own gain). He withheld aide to an ally, Ukraine, until the new Ukranian Pres agreed to investigate Biden. Zero comparison. The irony of Trumo, with one of THE most corrupt “swamps” to ever slither into the WH…trying to bribe an ally, withold aide hoping to find dirt on a former U.S. President!

        To summarize…Trump asked the the new Ukranian Pres to first “do him a favor” and investigate Biden (when there is zero evidence or suspicion he did anything wrong) because,what a surprise, Biden was leading him in the polls. Of course…he needs a new chant to “lock her up.” He’s hoping for a “lock him up” as he continues to con his way to the top of the swamp he’s swimming in.

At least during Watergate, we had a semblance of truth. NOW? What’s that line from FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF…”I weep for the future.” How right that was.

    ‘So, what are your thoughts on what the Impeachment hearings could mean for daytime dramas in in the weeks ahead? ‘

    LOL, the question should be, what does it mean for the networks that do this?

    This how they started the spiral of loss decades ago with the OJ Simpson BS decades ago… Trumps impeachment is bound to be more boring than watching the police chase that white van for hours, and the audience invested in this doesn’t really have the attention span of those decades ago nor the intelligence.

    The networks may get some ratings, especially with neilson in charge, but should expect drops across the board during-if goes on go long, and after.

    It may be the resugence of soaps, as they finally realize where they went wrong, and try really hard to get back into the game. Time will tell.

    People want to be entertained more than they want to be politicized, dogmatized or brainwashed.

      Not a big fan of Pelosi either, but I’ll take her over the two clowns who keep disrupting these hearings to interject their own agendas…

      Devin Nunes – previously best known for filing lawsuits against a fictional cow.

      Gym Jordan – belongs in prison for his part in enabling a serial child rapist.

      Maybe you should be billing those two… or at least the corporations who bankroll them?

          December 7, 2019 at 9:21 pm

          If anyone were obsessed with the notion of naked pictures of Trump, it would be Adam Schiff! He was absolutely giddy with delight when he was unwittingly punked by a comedian’s recorded phone call purporting to be a Russian agent said to possess such photos. Shifty Schiff couldn’t contain his willingness to “collude” with him in order to get his grubby hands on the so-called “compromat!” That is why DEVIN Nunes kept bringing up the subject….to remind everyone what a slimy, desperate little fool Schiff truly is!

          • rose

            January 24, 2020 at 11:34 am

            Shay…From what I have read, Schiff was not obsessed, giddy, or colluding when the “possibility” of getting nude photos of Trump which were offered by the Russian comic hacks. He said he would accept only if they talked directly to law enforcement and FBI. Or to legitimize it. A big difference than sending his lackey Giuliani to get “dirt.” And even then, I really dislike what the politics on both sides can/are coming to.

    Not a happy camper with my Daytime Soaps and other shows being preempted. My idea is to have a public channel broadcast the impeachment hearings. Think someone else said that. Leave our shows alone! Let people watch what they choose!

  35. The other Lis

    November 13, 2019 at 1:06 am

    All three networks have streaming services. Why not just put the current episodes online until the hearings ends. Soaps routinely draw the biggest audiences on the network apps. They could continue to storylines and draw millions of people to their streaming services and to cable on demand. When the hearings end they can do a week of catch up storyline. It could keep people watching, actors employed and possibly save the genre.

  36. Janet Simpson

We have 24 hour news channels, we can catch the highlights someplace else, if you really want to sit through it all then dedicate A channel to it, but taking all the channels to watch the same nonsense is absolutely ridiculous. I used to care about this country and the government and all that stuff, but it has become so blatantly corrupt and disgusting that only watch the local news for the weather anymore.

      November 22, 2019 at 7:54 am

      Well, the obvious answer to your question is that most football games are on the weekend, and even the Monday & Thursday night games are in the evening when Congress is usually done for the day.

      You’re correct about the news stations though. ABC, NBC, and CBS all have their own 24 hour news channels now, though CBS & ABC’s news channels are in digital format and not carried by cable systems. I’m guessing that most of you mortals have some streaming device capable of viewing those channels by now… Smart TV’s, Roku boxes, phone apps, etc. For that matter, PBS stations probably don’t carry much original daytime programming in between the early morning & late afternoon kids programs, so that would be a good venue for the audience who doesn’t have cable or internet access (if any such mortals still exist)

The choice to watch or not should be mine,should be up to all viewers. I can tell you the main reason I feel this way is because I hate how the left is wasting time on this witch hunt instead of doing the jobs for which they are well paid. I’m a proud supporter of President Trump and always will be, he’s done nothing that warrants impeachment. This exercise is nothing more than an extension of the ongoing temper tantrums of the left because Donald Trump beat their despicable candidate. Also proof positive they are unable to practice what they preach, specifically when they stated ad nauseam during the campaign that Trump supporters will need to accept the results of the election, behave as adults & citizens in support of the President elect! Unfortunately there is nothing I can do to stop their dog and pony show but I should at least be able to decide if I want to watch it. The bullying tactics must end!

    I don’t think they should show all of the proceedings since all most of us want to know is the outcome. This is not a news channel and if folks want to keep up with this there are plenty channels that cover this kind of stuff. Since he has been in office we have missed many episodes. That is not fair to the other programs that people choose to watch. Please stop, because I for one am not watching.

    This is beyond moronic, if anything these hearings just go on & on but we hear NOTHING from the lying democrats about Joe & Hunter Biden. there is such a double standard just a disgrace. I will never vote for a democrat in the next election, actually maybe ever! They have tried 3 ways from Sunday to impeach a president because they can’t believe the anointed HC didn’t win,of course we should mention all the dirty dealings the Clintons had going on! Btw, whatever happened to their foundation which mysteriously disappeared after she lost! Just bring back our daytime tv & stop this dog and pony show, please!

    Why can’t you JUST put this stuff on CNN and FOX? We have hundreds of channels, why do you have to preempt programs WE want to view when we pay for cable news channels already accessible with impeachment info? What is the point?? We already suffer with THE NEW FALL SEASON FINALE crap. We see 5 new episodes then we’re off until mid-January!! I like my shows on ABC CBS. NBC etc. there is no need to change Regular programming to add NEWS programming that can be found on many other channels. BORING UNNECESSARY

      November 24, 2019 at 8:54 pm

      Theresa, your comment here is incredibly distressing and misguided. This should not be a bipartisan issue. It’s sad that the Republican party continues to put party over country, and while they really know Trump is a threat to national security, they won’t do anything about it because they think they’re winning. In essence, they have proven time again that they are not patriots. How you can watch the compelling and alarming testimony which asserts that yes, Trump attempted to bribe a foreign country in exchange for a political favor and not care is beyond my comprehension. Even his own people testified to that fact.
      Listen to the noble and esteemed Dr Hill when she asserts that the Repugs must stop buying into Putin’s lies. The real winner here is Putin and Trump and the Repugs are his accomplices.

    December 4, 2019 at 10:45 am

    These hearings are just a game for democrats to pretend act & today it’s the Jerry Nadler side show! This is a disgraceful waste of time & an insult to viewers that they are shown on every station. The dems can be assured I will vote for Trump in the upcoming election just to punish them! It’s sad they don’t trust the voters, oh well I guess there is no democracy anymore! When you are home during the daytime & enjoy your soaps it really is sad you have no choices if you don’t want to watch this nonsense. So no daytime to until they bring back the soaps! I wouldn’t watch these garbage partisan hearings since the dems have done nothing but talk impeachment from the day Trump was elected, shame on them!

  127. Satan

    January 21, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    Any network employees who read this board, the Devil has a solution for you…..

    I understand why you feel the need to carry the ImOrangement trial live. Even though ABC, NBC, and CBS all have their own 24 hr news channels (some on cable TV, others on streaming formats) I get it. It’s news.

    Now having said that, there’s no reason to preempt the soaps entirely. All three of your networks have some godawful dragonshit garbage in your prime time lineup which could be easily pushed aside for a while to air the soaps in their place.

    If the idiotic “reality” shows air a few weeks or a few months late, it’s not going to damage those shows in anyway, since there’s no real continuity issues. So take all this Bachelor/Survivor/Voice/Dancing with washed up non stars/whatever it is you guys are polluting the prime time airwaves with at the moment, and replace it with the soaps.

    Hell, you can run the reality crap on “streaming only” if you want. I doubt many people will miss it. But shows that air DAILY will really suffer.

    Or is that the plan? We know how some of the suits feel about any show that actually involves creative process & talented actors/writers.

  128. Denise

    January 21, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    Why can’t networks show soaps on alternate channels that they use now and then.(living well or cozi )

    January 21, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    Have the Dems find their own tv channel and air the hearings on that or since many of them appear on late night tv shows, show the hearings during those time slots! Leave daytime shows alone and I can Bet my stocks(making lots of money) that your tv Ratings airing the trials will not be high, but those viewers who do watch, will be High themselves!

I take a half hour to watch tv a day and, I just feel like they should make a network that anyone can tune into, if they want to absorb themselves in politics. Instead, of cramming it down peoples throats(like mine) who don’t care to watch it! It is taking away what some people enjoy in life. (me time I call it) With all the channels on TV available for people to tune into, they could easily make a politic channel for those who care to tune into this daily bull****, can choose to do so instead of it being someone like me, who don’t give a crap!

    Keep the soaps on. The hearings are a joke. All Presidents in the past have done this, Obama and Bush, Clinton; none of them were faced with impeachment. It is normal practice for all past Presidents. Plus the senate has a Republican majority and will vote it down in the end.
    The soaps are a way for us to forget and enjoy a great fantasy world. Put the soaps back on!

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
