Another NBC Station Bumps Days of Our Lives Out of Daytime
In August it was announced that Las Vegas NBC affiliate KSNV would no longer air Days of Our Lives and fans would have to watch it on KVCW, a CW channel. Now The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that fans who watch DAYS on Salt Lake NBC affiliate KSL-Channel 5 will no longer be able to watch it at 2 PM. Instead, viewers can watch or DVR the latest Salem shenanigans at 1:05 AM. Adding insult to timeslot injury, KSL plans to air two hours of Dr. Phil during its daytime block.
Adding to the frustration is that, while Channel 5 can’t find room to air "Days" during the day, it can find room to air "Dr. Phil" twice.
Why is the soap opera off the schedule? I’m guessing it’s ratings-related. But I can’t say for sure, because the folks at KSL have declined to respond to several requests for clarification.
It looks like Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) won't be the only one who has trouble sleeping.
