I wouldn't mind if somewhere it was confirmed that there's a replacement lined up. But since it doesn't...:unsure:

I don't think they are going to replace her.

Sharongate, bitches!

There's rumors going around that NBC isn't looking to fill that position, which is worrisome for Days. However, as long as Zucker is still running things at NBC-Universal, it's always worrisome.

This really doesn't worry me, though. We already know once 2009 hits, NBC's dropping DAYS, I don't really think anything at this point short of a miracle will change it, so in a way, this really can't make the situation any more dire than it already is.

Good point Mason. What I'm worried about is whether or not NBC will just decide to drop Days right before or right after the 2008 Summer Olympics.

I think it's a foregone conclusion the situation is dire. I mean, if a replacement is named, then that is a good sign but still I'm not optimistic anymore and that says alot because I always am.

I do think there is a good possibility that Days can end up on Soapnet or something. I think that is all we can hope for at this point. That it airs somewhere after 2009.

I could live with DAYS on Soapnet.

NBC really is run by morons.

Their daytime ratings suck. Its primetime ratings (mostly) suck. It used to be great, but not anymore. Seinfeld is gone. Friends, Will & Grace, Frasier. E.R. will soon be gone.

It's not just DAYS that should be praying for a miracle. It's all of NBC.

This is what I've been saying for MONTHS! I'm glad someone else isn't seeing this through rose-colored glasses. I think March 2009 is even pushing it.

I could very well see the affiliates, whether or not NBC keeps DAYS, dropping it before the 2008 Olympics. That puts DAYS in a bad situation: if affiliates aren't airing the show, ad rates drop, which means the budget drops too, meaning NBC and Sony/Corday won't be able to absorb the cost of production without major, massive cast cuts all at once.

I actually think the fact that primetime is suffering too is actually taking some focus off Days. I mean, I have already read rumors that NBC is begging ER to stay on the air even thought they want to go off on their own. I know NBC would never beg Days to stay but if it can become somewhat profitable I think NBC may take it with the poor state it's in. Unfortunately, the only way I can see NBC keeping Days is if it's around 2.5 and if it undergoes further cuts and that might mean there will be nothing left, at least nothing left anyone wants to see.

Raymond, if I'm not mistaken (where is Steve when you need him, LOL) September was when NBC could legally say yes we are dropping the show, you need to move it, or no we're not dropping it.

So based on that (and I'm not even sure if it's accurate) NBC could very well dump the show at any time, which is why the Olympic coverage concerns me.

Only three shows have held the Thursday at 10:00 PM slot in THIRTY YEARS! That's an amazing feat, but NBC will definitely not be as lucky next year to bring a show on to have the magic ER, LA Law, and Hill Street Blues (I think) had. NBC has lost its magic across the board, I think. NBC should be really grateful for the Office and Heroes (on the decline?).

I beleve so King. It's sad when NBC only has ONE show in the top 20 and its no 18 i think with Deal or No Deal with a 8.0(based on ratings of Oct 14)

This is horrible news.

Of course this only puts another nail in the coffin. Quite frankly, I could tell Days wouldn't last when Passions was cancelled and Zucker made the announcement. And this was before the ratings free fall.

Days budget is no doubt tight, I mean with the low ratings and being at the bottom of the ratings.

And this just makes things worse. I want to be positive, but I can't anymore. Days is gone.

IA Mike. I haven't watched anything on NBC but Heroes since Friends came off the air (and DAYS of course). The fall of NBC has been universal across the board from daytime to primetime, at least for this viewer.

Firing Hogan won't accomplish nothing. It would mean another transition and the show can't survive that either.

The only thing I think any of us can do is hope for the best and enjoy the show, that is those that still find enjoyment in it. I still remain confident the show will find a new home. I just have given up on staying with NBC.

Yeah NBC is really hurting..I would say their only hits are Sunday Night Football, Heroes, and The Office..With Bionic Woman having potential, if it can keep up its ratings...
