NHL game cancelled for Fri. 11/23...will "Days" air new episode?; Plans for 11/23 now up in the air

With today's announcement of the NHL cancelling all games through November 30, there is now a "question mark" as to what will be airing in the "Days" timeslot on Friday, November 23, 2012.

The only statement so far is the one NBC released last month:

EVENT NOTE: If the lockout of the NHL Players' Association continues and causes a delayed start or cancellation of the NHL season, normal Network programming on 11/23/12 will be reinstated.

The "normal Network programming", of course, is "Days of Our Lives."

Right now, I can think of three possibilities:

1. A presentation of "It's a Wonderful Life", which NBC airs several times in December.
2. A new "insert" episode of "Days of Our Lives", which would have to be written quickly and feature mostly flashbacks (and be inserted as Episode # 11966A). This had to be done once before in 1986, with episode # 5364A airing on Thanksgiving Day 1986, the episode consisiting mostly of characters thinking about the past (and hastily being taped the Saturday before Thanksgiving, just 5 days before the episode aired!)
3. A repeat of a classic "Days" episode.

I'll post the decision as soon as information becomes available.

thanks for the info, Jason.

I guess that what NBC airs in this slot will also depend on whether or not Days is preempted on Election Day. I suspect that if that if the episode is preempted then, then they'll air the episode that was originally planned to air the day before so that the episodes will line up again & Christmas/New Years/etc will all air on the right days.

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

They should hand the hour over to Kristian Alfonso to do an infomercial for her jewelry. :laugh:

Yes, that would work out quite nicely for them if that happened!

There is also the question of what will air on New Year's Day if that NHL game is cancelled too.

Knowing the turds in charge we'll probably get a rerun of Melanie's goodbye episode.

I would love to see them take from what Guiding Light did back in 1987 to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The actors, as themselves, introduced classic clips. I would love to see DAYS devote an hour to that. They could really do a variety of classic scenes and it would not be confined by the sorry-ass writers having to come up with some reason for the characters to have a themed recollection around someone's kitchen table.
