If the show was unprofitable it would be canceled. Period. Nobody knows what are the real production expenses, nobody knows how much money DAYS makes from advertisers and other venues. Times are bad for sure. But that´s exactly the reason why the network will be even more carefull than just impetuously cancel a show which doesn´t make as much as used, but still is able to garantee a significant amount of viewers in the desired demos, on daily basis, 260 times per year.
In other words, as long as DAYS makes atleast some money and as long as NBC will not be sure they have a cheaper, as much successfull and a longterm! replacement DAYS will stay.
As for the cuts, I think the last few weeks and the new hires pretty much sealed what is NBC´s/Tomlin´s priority. He wants the young demos back and he wants to boost up the twenties, thirties group to make sure of that. That´s the main priority, that´s what TPTB is mostly concerned about. Tony, Anna are practically gone, Steve/Kayla are in the unfortunate position of the third supercouple which can be cut anytime. Kate and Dan are totally isolated and I could see a happy ending and ride to the sunshine for them after the cancer story ends.
I think all the characters who have story right now are save, plus Jarlena and Bope and probably Stefano, as long as Joe stays "reasonable".
