Below is the status of the daytime soaps for the US holiday of Thanksgiving in 2016.
are no new soap episodes on either Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November
24 or Friday, November 25. If you watch international soaps, obviously
since they don't celebrate they will air their episodes as normal.
"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: This year the network has the early NFL game on Thursday between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions starting at 12:30 pm ET. On Friday, a rerun of "The Price is Right" is scheduled, with a best of college football special beginning at 1:30 pm with Arkansas versus Missouri starting at 2:30 pm. This means they will not be airing "The Bold and the Beautiful" or "The Young and the Restless" either day.
NBC: Thursday on NBC has "The National Dog
Show" on for two hours starting at 12 pm ET, which is followed by a repeat of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast from the morning. On
Friday, "Days of Our Lives" will be preempted by the New York Rangers
against the Philadelphia Flyers 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.
