Oh dear God! NBC is killing this show! Days has traditionally always been shown in the NYC tri-state area at 1:00, so I doubt a lot of people will follow it to 2:00. OLTL currently airs in that time spot in the NYC area and is currently ahead of Days in the overall ratings, which could hurt Days. ATWT also airs in that time spot and is also ahead of Days, but let's not forget that NYC is the biggest television market in the nation and tends to favor the ABC soaps...|
Most schools in the NYC area tend to end at 2:30 to 3:00, so I don't see how that will tremendously impact ratings. Also, it's summer and it's obvious none of those kids at home are doing anything to help Days' ratings.
I can so see NBC affiliates gradually dropping Days if this time switch isn't successful, which will effectively be the end of Days on NBC. They're playing with fire by switching the show's traditional time spot.
Didn't Days also get a later time spot change in Chicago, earlier this year? That wasn't very effective and Chicago is another one of the nations' biggest television markets.
