Below is the status of the daytime soaps for the US holiday of Thanksgiving in 2017.
are no new soap episodes on either Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November
23 or Friday, November 24. 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, college football games will air.
CBS: This year the network has the
late NFL game on Thursday between the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys
starting at 4:30 pm ET, which means reruns of "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless". On Friday, a rerun of "The Price
is Right" is scheduled, as well as a rerun of Y&R with a best of college football special
beginning at 1:30 pm with Missouri versus Arkansas starting at 2:30 pm.
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.
Friday, "Days of Our Lives" will be preempted by the Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins.
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.
