They can promote Silverman having faith in Days all they want, but it doesn't make any difference. Everything is ultimately Zucker's decision, who has made it clear that Days might not live past 2009. |
Zucker is still the head of NBC-Universal, Silverman just oversees the day to day operations of the television division. In other words, Zucker is Silverman's boss and whatever Zucker wants is going to happen.
NBC is switching Days' timeslot in the major markets, the show has lost nearly 800,000 viewers from a year ago, advertisers are noticing this and starting to offer up less advertisements. It's a whole chain of reactions that NBC themselves set up years before. With the show losing viewers and advertising revenue, and productions costs always going up, NBC is setting themselves up for Days to fail. Not to mention, Days is their last existing soap and they've been anxious to get out of the soap business for at least 15 years now.
Part of me thinks Days would be better off on another network, but it isn't guaranteeed that another network will carry the show, when NBC decides to dump it. But you can be sure that Days probably wouldn't be in all this trouble if it were a CBS or ABC soap.
