This sucks for Sony/Corday Productions...that is a good chunk of money they no longer will receiving from SoapNet/Disney for DAYS broadcasting rights...not to mention Corday Productions also will be losing its portion of the Y&R broadcasting rights as well.
Wouldn't Sony (and Corday) continue to be paid the rights fees until their contract ends? I don't recall the contract timeframe, but just because the rights-holder opts not to show the program doesn't mean their contract is invalidated.

Now, if the contract has ended, that's another story.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

Just wondering if anyone can update me on what the status is of SoapNet going off the air and whether DAYS will be airing until the end.

Also, I was watching Bravo tonight and noticed that they had a random repeat of NBC's "Smash" on at midnight/11 central. Was thinking that after DAYS stops airing on SoapNet that Bravo could easily make time on its schedule for either a nightly DAYS repeat at say like 2 a.m. or maybe a DAYS marathon block sometime on their weekend schedule.

I certainly wouldn't expect a DAYS repeat to find itself in some prime air time, but given how much of the network's schedule is repeats over and over they certainly could make room for it.

What do you guys think?

I would completely agree with that. I have been considering asking the TPTB to air it on NBC late night also, but never considered the Bravo channel. We constantly have interruptions on NBC at 1:00. Great idea to air on Bravo!

Too bad Turner can't buy it and turn it into Turner Classic Soaps.

I don't understand why someone doesn't know the thirst for classic soaps is still out there. Excellent idea.
