Maybe Days should put the entire cast on recurring and only pay people when they are going to use them..

After hearing how much Days budget was slashed, and after hearing how Corday was in SOD...

I might get bashed for this, but...

I almost wish Days would be picked up by another network. I know the budget would be cut if it did but NBC seems like it doesn't want to cancel it, it wants to cut the budget until there is NO budget!

According to SOD, DAYS' budget was cut by 40% :o
GL territory, here we come!
Great......now Days is gonna be filmed with camera-phones....
Those may be better quality than the hand-helds ;)

I'm convinced the camera work is being done by interns at the moment! It's so bad and the angles are NOT soap opera!

Which means it's now at approximately 520, 000 from 1.3 mill!
The budget was cut 40% which means $520,000 was slashed from the current 1.3 million a week budget.

$1,300,000 (current budget)
- $520,000 (40% cut)
= $780,000 (New budget)

ATWT and GL both have lower budgets and PSNS budget was $450,000

It all hinges on the writing now, which is what it should have been all along.

This is more depressing than the other big DAYS news! I love Bo & Hope. What is DAYS gonna do without all these vets. They (especially Bope) are a huge component of this show IMO.

Exactly.

It's manageable with good writing and actually paying attention to your finances but i have my doubts that can happen with Corday in charge.
