I'm a little late blogging this, because we were having technical funk nasties yesterday, but it looks like NBC is staying in the daytime soap game, at least for a little while longer. At the TCA panel for the Peacock Network, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt praised NBC's lone sudser Days of Our Lives:
My hat is off to them as they creatively keep these things going. It is the only soap that we have. I think it does relatively well for us.
Greenblatt continued by admitting soaps as a whole could be "going into the twilight years" because of all the stiff competition from talk and game shows, but that for the time being, NBC is pleased with DAYS' performance and he suspects it will be on "for a while."
