Days of Our Lives to Be Interrupted by the Olympics

by at . Comments

Attention, Days of Our Lives fans:

Beginning on August 11, the series will offer special programming due to NBC's coverage of the Olympics.

Concerned that certain parts of the country might not get to see Days of Our Lives every day during the event, the show will kick off two limited-arc storylines.

"We didn't want to advance our front-burner stories knowing some fans would be missing out," explains Bruce Evans, senior vice president, Daytime and Drama Programming told Soap Opera Digest.

What went down this week on Days of Our Lives? Let's run it all down, shall we?


Oh yes, S A V E Days of Our Lives. I admit you had
a time when the storyline was a little lame but
my goodness you are doing very well now. You are
bringing in some young people and you still have
our favorites too. I love Days and I have been watching it probably since it first started. You
know back then we couldn't record the show so I
worked day shift and my new husband worked 2nd
shift so he would watch it and tell me about the
days events.
Later I became a school bus driver and found out
one of my students' mom liked Days. We had a
satelitte dish (at the time) and I was able to get the show a day ahead of time. I would tell the daughter
what would happen the next day and found out that
the daughter was betting her Mom on what would be
happening and and was making money on my highlights. I have many good memories with Days and I still
watch it every day. PLEASE do not take Days off
the air. I have many friends that wouldn't miss
watching, just like me.
Thanks for listening!!
