Days of Our Lives: Are the Hours Numbered for the NBC Soap?

Days of Our Lives May EndHang onto your seats soap fans! Dr. Marlena Evans and the Brady and Horton families may be in trouble again — and this time, there may not be an escape!

An industry source has recently reported that NBC is considering canceling the long-running soap opera, Days of Our Lives. NBC has aired the soap for all of its incredible 40+ year run but does not actually own the series.

Word is that NBC feels that the licensing fee it pays to the production company is too high (based on the show’s ratings). If a lower fee can’t be negotiated, the series may end at the end. One source has said that the current contract runs until 2009 but there is a clause in it that would allow NBC to terminate the show as early as the Spring of 2007.

I’ll be on the lookout for new developments. Stay tuned . . .TV Series Finale home page

    There has got to be a way to keep days on the air. Look at all the fans! What can we the fans do? How do we let those that own the show know of our concerns and intense interest in keeping it on the air? Please post this information on the nbc DOOL webpage so the fans can be proactive in keeping this american icon alive.

    COME ON DOOL FANS, LET’S UNITE AND SHOW THEM HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS FOR US!!!!!!!!!

    PLEASE don’t take “days ” off the air, I have watched it for 30 years….no other show holds a candle to DAYS…..It is a good family show….not to much violence…All the people are, “friends” for all these.years..I used to watch “another world” and “the doctors” and they are long gone…..DAYS OF OUR LIVES…is the BEST of all of them. PLEASE keep it on the air!!! Many thanks…also from many watchers, that do not have a computer to send their regrets!!!

    I am a huge Days fan and have been watching Days for about 13 years now. They can’t end Days!!!!! We need to start a petition and send it to NBC. They would be making a huge mistake by taking Days off the air. It is the best soap out there. I can’t even believe that we are having to go through the worrying. Someone needs to tell us if this rumor is 100% true. I need to know!!!!!

    I had a nightmare last night that they cancelled Day’s of our Lives. I googled it today to see if it might be true and to my horror I found that DOOL might really be cancelled. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL DOOL. I would not know what to do with myself. I have watched it for 20 years. I am not sure if there is a rehab I can go to if DOOL goes of the air so save me and everyone else a nervous breakdown and keep Day’s going.
