Sadly, POP has decided to discontinue same day airings of Days Of Our Lives beginning tonight (4/15/16). I imagine the ratings are just too low. The show is down at 1.6 in the national ratings; Y&R is at 3.4, more than twice the ratings for Days.
It was helpful to have Days on at 8 p.m. EST on POP. I will miss it. I do wish there would be an all-soaps channel, but with me in charge of it! One of the things that would be great would be to include the various digital web soaps and get the rights to whatever is available of defunct soaps to broadcast (there must be a way to get around the music rights issues; editing, cutting a few scenes where those issues get in the way, would be worth it to see older soaps episodes.)
I know what you mean, I miss SoapNet. It was a great channel and a real luxury to be able to watch soaps on nights and weekends.
