I watched some of this briefly. The early episodes of OC. I was really put off by some of the families, especially one of the mothers and her incredibly rude, nasty treatment of her son, solely because he reminded her of her ex-husband. It was all very nasty and unpleasant. I'm sad this is the future of daytime, apparently in NBC's mind.

Why? is the show that popular?

some of these shows are better than the current crap on the soaps. The NJ housewives were a trip. I wonder if they will have enough episodes though. I know the NJ season was short, like 6 or 7 episodes. NBC can probably go through all the seasons in 3-4 months

No matter which way you look at it, nothing good can come out of this.

entertaining shows in daytime? a lot of good can come from that.

its bad news for soaps, sure, but if the soaps were not near unwatchable there wouldn't be an issue.

i do feel bad for lower level writers, hair & makeup, lighting people, etc on soaps that will lose jobs. But the industry has done it to itself.

This is the first invasion of reality tv into daytime. The networks will be paying attention to how these shows do in the ratings.

No, there was a reality show on NBC a few years ago before Days.

Anyone hear more about this? Is it still happening? Will it only be on some NBC affiliates or should it be everywhere? Ive grown obsessed with the Housewives franchise and have missed all of OC and the first 2 seasons of NYC. Plus Id love to see Atlanta over from the beginning
