IMO,this is a bad move,those little clip is what make me to tune in the next day,especially if i miss 1 or more episodes
I'm with you. I like them.

As a Tanna fan, since my favs are on maybe twice a month, it's good to have the previews to let me know if they are on the next day. Tony wasn't mentioned in any spoilers for the eppy of the 19th. If it wasn't for the Canadian Hoochies I would have no idea he was on. I always tune in for the DOOL previews after I finish B&B.
But see, if I was a producer of the show, I wouldn't want you only tuning in only when Tony/Anna are on. I'd want you tuning in all the time. To make sure that happened, I'd get rid of the next-day previews and leave you guessing, that way you HAD to watch... just incase.

Of course, some people just get on the internet and read the Canadian day-ahead episode summary to find out if their favorites are on, but the majority of soap viewers aren't on these sites and have no clue how to do that. So, yeah...
Exactly. It makes you watch and that will provide a chance for fans of a couple, character, or actor/actress to get to like other characters. That is usually what used to happen. Everyone had their faves but they grew to like others and grew to like watching the whole show because they were forced to watch everyday. There was no previews or day aheads telling them who exactly would be on and so on. Oh how I wish that could happen again. This is a step in the right direction. Now if they could limit spoilers and make it a bit more vague as to what will happen and who is on day to day, things would be much better.
