The Big Three broadcast networks may not value soap stars and their loyal fans like they once did, but cable channel Investigation Discovery is definitely picking up the slack! Starting Monday at 1 pm EST, ID will debut its Days of Our Knives block of tawdry, non-fiction crime stories. The installments will be hosted by some of daytime's most beloved current and former stars such as Kristian Alfonso, Drake Hogestyn, Matthew Ashford, Judi Evans, Jackie Zeman, Lynn Herring, Kin Shriner, Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman.
Days of Our Knives will serve as a daytime counterpart to ID's upcoming primetime series Deadly Affairs, hosted by the biggest daytime soap star of them all, Susan Lucci. Watch the Days of Our Knives promo after the jump!

We Love Soaps: You were here in New York City taping GOTHAM during a blizzard. Did you have any trouble getting in and out of the city?
