The verdict is in: "Days of Our Lives" will be preempted for the entire duration of the 2012 Summer Olympics. As NBC did in 2004, "Days" will be preempted for the 10 weekdays of the Summer Olympics: Monday July 30, Tuesday July 31, Wednesday August 1, Thursday August 2, Friday August 3, Monday August 6, Tuesday August 7, Wednesday August 8, Thursday August 9, and Friday August 10. "2012 Summer Olympics: Daytime" will be airing on all NBC affiliates from 10AM-5PM ET (9AM-4PM CT/MT/PT) each day. Episode # 11894 (airing Friday, July 27, 2012) will be the last episode of "Days" aired until Episode # 11895 airs on Monday, August 13, 2012. Here is the complete airdate schedule of "Days" from now until September 2012:

It's probably for the best. DAYS would likely air during the middle of the night.

And from a business standpoint.... The Olympics > Days of our Lives. It's really a no-brainer.

TPTB really need to give the show an awesome cliffhanger going into the break. Leave the viewers wanting to come back. They also need to take a full month off shooting. This schedule they're on is beyond ridicoulous.

There was really no way around it because of the time difference and when key events were going to be scheduled to air. It is better to preempt it entirely instead of moving it to ridiculous times and having people miss episodes.

In any event, there's no space for anything on NBC's schedule, be it daytime, primetime, or late night.

The Olympics will be airing from 12:35AM-5AM, 10AM-5PM, 8PM-12AM each weekday. The only thing airing on the network besides the Olympics for the 2 weeks is a shortened, 3-hour version of "Today" from 7AM-10AM. That leaves just 5.5 hours a day for local news & syndicated programming (5AM-7AM, 5PM-8PM, 12AM-12:35AM), so everything from "Days" to the whole primetime schedule to "Jay Leno", "Jimmy Fallon", etc.... won't be airing.

Even despite it's awfulness, DAYS was really entertaining the last time it got pre-empted for the Olympics. It's probably too much to hope for something really fun and ridiculous that will pull people back. I remember the "Next time on Days" that Friday looked epic, since this was during the whole captive island storyline. But there's not really anything that epic happening on the show now.

I do home they take a lot of time off, though. Because I agree how far ahead they are in shooting is kinda stupid.

DOOL really was at its all time worst in 2004. The s#it that year was even more dreadful than the last two years of AMC & GL, the vampire stuff on PC, and possibly even worse than Passions was in 2004.

Was the soap pre-empted as much in 2008 as it was in 2004 & 2012?

I still say Days is at its worst when its dreadfully BORING. Like Dena's first run in 2003, the one that upset Brash/Cwikly. And then whatever the hell was going on in during that safe house mess up until before the baby switch started really taking shape.

2004 is awful, awful writing but I'll be damned if I wasn't glued to my screen every day.
