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!
Over a dozen of your favorite soap stars are set to reunite on cable. No, SOAPnet didn't all of the sudden remember its name. Investigation Discovery is launching a new block of programming aimed at lapsed soap opera lovers! Smartly christened "Days of Our Knives", the cabler's new daytime block will feature scandalous offerings hosted by soapers Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Drake Hogestyn and more!
"After the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live we saw an opening in the marketplace for some of our most popular series," says ID president and general manager Henry Schleiff. "Our tagline at ID is 'Your Guilty Pleasure' and that's a perfect fit for soap viewers, too. Our show titles even sound like they come from soaps — Happily Never After, Dates From Hell, Deadly Women, Wicked Attraction, Who the Bleep Did I Marry?"
Okay, this Schleiff fellow seems like my kinda TV exec! ID will be using their new soap-themed block to promote the upcoming series Deadly Affairs, hosted by La Lucci herself. The series premieres Sept. 8 at 10/9c. Check out ID's full lineup of upcoming programming hosted by soap stars after the jump!

A preview of the play was held May 12 at The Beckette Theatre in New York City.
Written by Susan Charlotte and directed by Anthony Marsellis and Christopher Hart, She’s of a Certain Age also stars Drena De Niro and Lois Markle. Tina Sloan showed up in the audience preview night, to support her former costar. She’s of a Certain Age runs until June 10. See more photos after the jump! READ MORE
While it isn't nice to be happy about anyone being out of a job in this economy, I can't say I'm too upset to hear that Brian Kerwin is reportedly leaving One Life to Live. Charlie Banks started off as an amazing character, and great love interest for Viki (Erika Slezak), but post Jared dying, Kerwin began playing the character as a ham, with an extra helping of cheese grits.
