Viewing Single Post From: NHL game cancelled for Fri. 11/23...will "Days" air new episode?
Member Avatar

With today's announcement of the NHL cancelling all games through November 30, there is now a "question mark" as to what will be airing in the "Days" timeslot on Friday, November 23, 2012.

The only statement so far is the one NBC released last month:

EVENT NOTE: If the lockout of the NHL Players' Association continues and causes a delayed start or cancellation of the NHL season, normal Network programming on 11/23/12 will be reinstated.

The "normal Network programming", of course, is "Days of Our Lives."

Right now, I can think of three possibilities:

1. A presentation of "It's a Wonderful Life", which NBC airs several times in December.
2. A new "insert" episode of "Days of Our Lives", which would have to be written quickly and feature mostly flashbacks (and be inserted as Episode # 11966A). This had to be done once before in 1986, with episode # 5364A airing on Thanksgiving Day 1986, the episode consisiting mostly of characters thinking about the past (and hastily being taped the Saturday before Thanksgiving, just 5 days before the episode aired!)
3. A repeat of a classic "Days" episode.

I'll post the decision as soon as information becomes available.
