where did you see this?

It's coming from soap central. Why would LM want Days on CBS? He fuckin cancelled ATWT and GL to put his wife's damn show!  There is no room for Days on CBS.

well, as I've said before....as long as ken Corday owns the majority of that show, it will continue to be horseshit...no matter what channel it's on.

IF CBS acquires DAYS, I could see them moving it to the CBS All-Access - the launch of The Good Fight and Star Trek is not enough new content to get people to pay. DAYS really doesn't have much longer to last. It may go the route of Passion on DirectTV. Of course, CBS could license it to NBC - it's not like others don't do it in prime time all the time - FOX does it with their comedies, etc.

CBS will drop Let's Make a Deal for Days, just watch. I like LMaD but I've suspected from day 1 that it's purpose was to be a placeholder until CBS could get Days.

 

The CBS Daytime lineup could look like this (all times ET):
11 am - The Price is Right

noon - local news

12:30 pm - Y&R

1:30 pm - B&B

2 pm - Days

3 pm - The Talk

I've never cared for this version of LMAD. I watched it once and hated it. It would be a slap in the face to ATWT and GL fans if LM were to put Days on CBS.

To clarify, the rumor is that CBS Corporation is acquiring Sony Pictures Television - so this actually has nothing at all to do with CBS the TV network or NBC the TV network. If it happens, I doubt DAYS would be affected at all. The only "big" thing could be a bump in the licensing fee that would drive NBC to drop the show and Sony to cancel.

I could see CBS pushing DAYS on All Access. I don't know if CBS wants the expense of 3 soaps on their broadcast network (although if Days gets higher ratings than LMAD, I could see them pushing the game show off) but I could see them trying to get a well known soap with a built-in loyal fanbase for their digital platform, which they are clearly trying to boost.

Didn't CBS All Access begin original programming with that spinoff of The Good Wife? I think CBS is trying to get competitive with Hulu.

 

ETA--Wait, so Days is not a part of Sony Pictures Television??

This article fails to recognize that in the Victoria Rowell litigation, Sony's own motion stated that it is not a producer of DAYS. Sony is the distributor of DAYS and has a minority interest in the show. 

 

What a purchase of Sony Television by CBS would result in is CBS owning Y&R. CBS would have an opportunity to take DAYS to CBS as a natural transition between distribution company and network but Corday Productions Inc. would remain the owner, unless Ken Corday sold the show, which is hard to predict.

Yes, it is. But even IF CBS buys Sony Pictures Television, the company behind both Days/Y&R, it doesn't mean Days would switch networks. Think of it like prime time: I believe Modern Family is actually produced by Fox but airs on ABC. Same deal here.

The slap in the face to ATWT and GL fans was P&G and CBS slowly letting the shows die, then the disgusting Moonves smugging it up in the press over the shows being replaced by his wife's talk show. DAYS replacing them 8 years later doesn't really compare to me.

Oh, okay.

 

You know if it were a P&G show, they wouldn't hesitate to shove that show on another network.<_<

I didn't know that. Come to think of it, DAYS closing credits have always ended with a Corday Productions copyright and never mentioned Sony (or Columbia before it) within the actual credits - always as a vanity card on its own.

That could just be an agreement between the two entities. As long as Sony gets their cut, they may not care whether their name is on the actual credits.
