UPDATE ABOUT FRIDAY 11/22/13 EPISODE OF "DAYS" FOR 1PM ET/12PM CT AFFILIATES...MAJORITY OF ACTS FOUR & FIVE WILL BE PREEMPTED....NBC RE-ADJUSTS ACTS TO ALLOW ALL 21 MINUTES OF COMMERCIALS TO AIR...END CREDITS WILL AIR AS A STAND-ALONE AT THE END OF THE EPISODE

"Days of Our Lives" fans in the Eastern time zone & Central time zone (who get "Days" from 1-2PM ET/12-1PM CT) will be getting a special feed of the show tomorrow, due to NBC News coverage of the memorial service honoring the 50th Anniversary of President Kennedy's death. NBC has rearranged the "Days" acts to make sure none of its commercials get preempted (during the highly-critical November sweeps period). While viewers will get to see all 21 minutes of commercials, a portion of the episode (from around 8-9 minutes) will be preempted for the news coverage of the memorial. Viewers in the Mountain & Pacific time zones will not be affected and will get the regular feed of the episode.

**PLEASE NOTE: The memorial coverage could be cancelled tomorrow if there are bad weather conditions in Dallas.

ET/CT viewers, here's what to expect tomorrow:

TEASER ACT/ACT ONE........1:00:00PM-1:05:32PM

COMMERCIAL BREAK # 1....4 minutes

ACT TWO..............................1:09:37PM-1:16:34PM

COMMERCIAL BREAK # 2....4 minutes, 30 seconds

A combination of ACT 3/ACT 4/ACT 5 will begin at 1:21:04PM
At some point, around 1:28PM, fans will miss around 8-9 minutes of "Days" for news coverage (1:28-1:36:54)
The news coverage should end by 1:36:54PM and go right into


COMMERCIAL BREAK # 3.....3 minutes, 55 seconds

ACT SIX.................................1:40:51PM-1:45:32PM

COMMERCIAL BREAK # 4......4 minutes, 30 seconds

ACT SEVEN...........................1:50:03PM-1:53:35PM

At this point, the show will go to
COMMERCIAL BREAK # 5.....4 minutes

The end credits will then air ..1:57:36PM-1:58:11PM

This is not something I can upset over. Its a nationally historic moment. If they're going to partially pre-empt, I'll take this. They could have done a full pre-emption and had pre-airing coverage with people talking about it for the first 20 minutes. I'm glad they seemed to give DAYS what they could.

Perhaps most of you weren't alive 50 years ago, I was a barely 20 year old new mother far away from home at that moment. I was watching a movie that was interrupted and was briefly upset for the interruption but then glued to the tv for 4 days watching this tragic event unfold. To most of you, it is just history. I met JFK in 1960 as a high school junior and he took time to come over to me and sign an autograph which I still have. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

ArizonaDaze, I was only 5 but I remember it well. I was with my parents in the car when we heard the news on the radio. My employer asked people to share their remembrances of that day on our internal internet and some of the responses have been very moving. This will probably be the last big commemoration because a lot of us who remember that day will be passed on or very old by the time the next milestone comes around.

I wasn't old enough to vote in the 1960 election, but I remember telling my father after I had met JFK that I had met the next president. It was a cool time. We stayed up late the night of the convention so I could see him get the nomination. I really felt he was MY president.

"As the World Stopped Turning"

Below are links to the ATWT live broadcast from November 22, 1963 plus a current NY Times article about the soap broadcast and the CBS Bulletin interruptions. Walter Cronkite's voice only bulletins come at 10:01, 13:08 and then 17:45, interrupting Nancy Hughes (the wonderful Helen Wagner) and then sandwiched among one more show snippet and some very old style commercials.

The Kennedys, John Connally, Walter Cronkite, Helen Wagner...all gone now...all gone. RIP

Personally, I'd feel the same way about this interruption even if I had been alive back then. I was alive to witness the 9/11 tragedy, and that doesn't make me consider interruptions to commemorate that anniversary any less annoying. I just feel that there's a time and a place for news, and that's during shows and on channels that are dedicated to delivering said news. There's certainly plenty of each. Preempting shows to deliver news is always inappropriate, IMO, regardless of the reason.

But that's just my opinion, and it has nothing to do with being disrespectful to any particular tragedy. It's just about being respectful to people who, for whatever reason, don't want to see said coverage, not to mention being respectful to the work that many people put into filming an episode that was meant to be seen in its entirety, not chopped up and interrupted midway through on the whims of network broadcasters.
