I can't believe they've shoved the Days marathon to basically an overnight airing.

They keep giving days the shaft with there scheduling right now. It's pi$$ing me off. They don't repeat it at 11 now weekdays. It's only 6pm and 5am for the airings during the week. Now the crappy marathon schedule. They are making it nearly impossible to watch days on there.

I swear, they are purposely making it so that it's either 6pm or not at all. They want us to watch their lil 5-6-7 marathon of OC/One Tree Hill/Days of Our Lives, even though DAYS has nothing to do with the other 2 shows.

I loved having DAYS at 11 and the 6-11 marathon on Sunday was also convenient during weeks I was too busy to watch. They are really screwing over the viewers.

And all this inconsistencies coming up... One OLTL episode being on at a different time so they can have some reality show? I mean, soaps thrive on CONSISTENCY, not just in its storytelling, but its TIMESLOT.

Soapnet needs to remember what happens when soaps are moved around too often. Remember the effect of all the OJ Simpson trial pre-emptions???

Well, first off, I'm mad that my cable provider stopped making SN available without a fuckin cable box.

Second, I'm mad that Soap Talk was canceled.

Third, I'm mad, from the way it sounds this past year, that Soap Net has become the WB with The OC and OTH being added.

Well as of last year, DAYS was the #1 rated show for SoapNet (among same-day episode showings).

Can't imagine the ratings have fallen to far for them.

On the one hand I think it's a good idea to associate shows like The OC with the idea of soap opera.

On the other hand, I want my damn Days marathon on Sunday when I can watch it.

Yeah and this time last year Days was scoring around a 2.5 to a 2.7 hell it was even no.3 in the ratings last year this time. In midst of the NBC drop inratings I imagine Soapnets airing of it lost viewers too

Thanks for that Multi channel link Everyone should check it out,

After all... tomorrow is another day!

OK am I reading that multichannel thing wrong or does that say that SoapNet does better in primetime than MTV does? That seems odd to me.

Hmmm...SoapU anyone?!

I'm not even really pissed so much that they didn't choose me for top ten, but for the fact that alot of their entries were short films instead of what soaps truly should and need to be.

And The OC is SOOO not what needs to be played on SOAPnet.

Every time they reschedule Port Charles, they start the arcs over. Still waiting to see "The Gift."
