Thanksgiving Preemptions 2015

Below is the status of the daytime soaps for the US holiday of Thanksgiving in 2015.

There are no new soap episodes on either Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 26 or Friday, November 27. If you watch international soaps, obviously since they don't celebrate they will air their episodes as normal.

ABC: "General Hospital" will be on Thursday, but it is a rerun from earlier in the year. On Friday, a college football game will air with the teams yet to be announced.

CBS: At least in the eastern part of the US, "The Young and the Restless" will air reruns. The Thursday NFL game between the Carolina Panthers and the Dallas Cowboys only starts at 4:30 ET (the earliest), and the college game on Friday starts at 2:30 with a best of college football show for one hour prior to it, so "The Bold and the Beautiful" will only have a rerun shown on Thursday afternoon.

NBC: Thursday on NBC has "The National Dog Show" on for two hours starting at 1 pm ET, which airs again on Friday evening. Multi-soap opera alum John O'Hurley hosts this event.  On Friday, "Days of Our Lives" will be preempted by the New York Rangers against the Boston Bruins NHL game.

Thanksgiving is a great weekend if you're a sports fan, and a respite for soap fans to do other things. Hopefully you'll have a good holiday weekend.
