They get closer to 5 months ahead towards the end of the year. They should probably start taping May Sweeps within the next few weeks.
THIS IS JUST INSANE!!! They shouldn't be getting even farther ahead! They're almost half a year ahead. They need to not speed up in advance of the Christmas break & just let themselves fall back to 3.5 months ahead or so. There really can't possibly be any justification to filming THIS far in advance. If anything, it will hurt them because they can't redirect storylines if fans/viewers are unresponsive to a story or dislike it completely and are very vocal about their dislike. At this point, I'll take them being 3 months ahead, but pushing 5 months is just completely & utterly ridiculous and unnecessary!
It's show "business." NBC budgets out the weeks they work. NBC doesn't want to have to invest much money in a cancelled project, so they have it set to be finished taping in April or so, if they decide to cancel. ABC taped two episodes of Port Charles a day so they could speed up production and be totally done by the time its cancellation was announced.
