    But it still has no network picking it up. I hope, being on a Saturday night when the regular programming sucks, that CBS or NBC will decide to telecast the show. It would really be a shame if it wasn’t on the air…just another slap in the face to the soap fans.

    I am really glad they’re going back to LA and no more of the Vegas crap taking over the show.
