  • Another day another interruption

    Here we go. Another day, another interruption of DAYS. Ridiculous. If only there were 24 hour news channels, online streaming, social media outlets, etc... Oh wait, there are. HEY NETWORKS- YOU are the biggest reason why soaps lost so many viewers over the years. You’ve interrupted the soaps for years, stopped promoting, slashed budgets, and then wonder why ratings are terrible.

    What's the big news emergency, now?

      I'm going to assume another C-19 update of some sort.

      I will always remember how the OJ Simpson trial destroyed any attempt for us on the west coast to watch midday soap for an entire summer, plus some. Soaps always get pre-empted. Try doing that to more prime-time shows instead. Those I rarely watch.

        They’d never touch their precious prime time
        Shows

        I was working then and we watched that trial everyday. It was a soap opera, even though the reason for it
        was tragic.

        The networks have interrupted prime time before. It depends on when the event occurs.

        Well, he did faint after choking. He didn't die thankfully and he was our President - the leader of our country so his health does matter.

        Not quite the topic at hand, but I remember being upset when the news interrupted an afterschool special when I was a little girl, I never did get to see the end of it. It was the day Reagan was shot. I recall it well.

          I agree, John Lewis, he is a True Hero and is a worthy of the interruption. This was a man who was willing to give his life in a nonviolent march across the Edmond Pettus Bridge for Civil Rights and for the right to vote. When you are willing to be beaten to almost the point of death for right to be treated like anyone else and to not ever lift a hand to fight back that is a person who should given the right to Lie in State in our Capital Building and I welcome the interruption. I will be watching the proceedings with great respect.

            I couldnt agree more! I would much rather honor a legend like John Lewis than worry about a soap being interrupted..

          John Lewis was one of the most important men the last 50 years I have no problem with the show not being on TV., anyways I'm watching the show on Youtube.

            I’m not arguing his importance. There are plenty of outlets for him to be honored for people who choose to watch. NBC needs to stop interrupted Days unless it’s for an actual emergency

            John Lewis was a sitting Congressman who's history was of significant historical importance. Networks don't interrupt just for emergencies. Some don't have cable as well.

          I’m ok with the interruption, I did want to watch but I’m okay with watching it later. I can rest a little more before work.

            Agreed. Interruptions are inconvenient, but I don't mind them when they're important. There's plenty of ways to watch an interrupted episode anyway.

              Soaps are just cheap content for the TV networks and that’s about it. They don’t really care about soaps and will find reasons to interrupt them when they can.

                Just be prepared it might get interrupted tomorrow and Wednesday for Mr. John Lewis. Im almost sure his funeral will be three days just like John McCain.

                  First off, network interruptions did not bring down soap ratings in their heyday; as for this interruption, it is important. Very important emergencies have interrupted primetime.

                    Lately, it's in the daytime, there has been more news interruptions. Especially when Trump took the office.

                  I also agree.

                  John Lewis is an American hero. Celebrating his life, which he dedicated to the betterment of all mankind, is much more important than watching a soap opera... that will be available on an app anyway. You can watch Days conveniently in the comfort of you own home at anytime. Sometimes, interruptions trump mindless entertainment (which is what the show is written to be).

                    It's really not about if he was more important than a soap or anything else. Is it REALLY all about the breaking news? And even if DOOL is like you said, mindless entertainment, to those it is an escape like other soap operas are still to this day. If it was a deadly emergency or anything else then I would completely understand. The funeral could of been seen on other news networks.

                  Unfortunately, NBC is a news outlet especially in NYC. Yes, John was a legend. No question there.
