Report: NBC kills the daytime soap opera “Passions” for good…

Since NBC cancelled the short lived daytime soap opera “Passions” last year, NBC tried to bring it back to life to bring it back to the tube. Universal Media Studios tried to help the soap find a home. The “Passions” cast and crew were once told to keep the show alive on the internet only but failed at that too. NBC killed the show because simply, no one wants it.

“Passions” is a day time soap opera created by writer James E. Reilly, the series debuted in 1999.

Well, I wonder why no one wants the show. It’s because the show is simply horrible.

Nobody cares for daytime soap operas anymore because all the ratings are so low on them. Rumours are circulating all over the internet that NBC could axe “Days of Our Lives” next year in 2009. The soaps are pretty much the lowest ratings on TV right now.

Honestly though, I don’t blame the low ratings on the bad writing and acting ’cause some of them can actually be real good. I blame the low ratings on these shows because they are shown during the day where people are at “work” or people who don’t work just do things during the day and not stay home watching TV.

If some of these shows were moved to Prime Time TV, I assure you the ratings would go up then.

  1. Yes, Your are absolutley right
    soaps are so cool but the shouldn’t show them in the mornig
    they should not be shown during the mornig, no one can watch them in that time!!
    i think Days of Our Lives should be shown after the Today show not befor it!

  3. I think that Passions was a great show. I honestly hated to see it go when it left NBC. I think for those of you who did watch it as i did from the beginning,you would have liked it. Most of you who have a comment about it probably have never even watched it.The show was a little wacky but thats what set it apart from all of the others.The actors were great.The story lines were great. I just wish NBC would bring it back. I NEVER missed a episode. As for DAYS OF OUR LIVES it is great soap too. Ive watched it since i was 10. NBC would be making a HUGE mistake if they ever let that show go.Although Stefano will be missed, I dont think its going to hurt the show because he had already been gone for awhile before this last time. But you know what they say in salem: THE PHOENIX WILL RISE AGAIN. lol

  5. Kev for you to say Passions was just a bad show is just your opinion, and maybe the opinion of the folks who did not watch! But for the millions, yes I said millions that did watch it was a great show, we loved it, and miss it dearly! What other soap that was cancelled twice and saved twice? None! And I hear there may be a third resurrection; Rumor has it Passions is gearing up for it’s 10th season (on YOUTUBE only), but it is slated to return. We fans will take it anyway we can get it! I juts want you to know; I Love This Show! and I’m still upset with NBC for trying to force all soaps off of their network. Have they not heard of giving the people what they want, Well we are the people, and usually majority rule. As long as that rule applies Passions will be back!

  6. I LOVE PASSION

    for it was the only show that was more close too real life today. it and young&restless.

    they tell the truth as it really is.and there is no FAMILY MEMBERS sleeping around with

    every MAN OR WOMAN in the shows that is just plane Incest and we have too many

    sick PEOPLE around here that do that today in real life and that’s a SIN and against the LAW. I love passion for not haveing that kind of sick mine.Thank you for not beening

    another BOLD&BEAUTIFULLY for that show is truly sickening.

  7. Passions was a woundful show I think you to take a vote , and ask how many people want the show back , and see if it’s worth puting back on. I’m sure the fans will agree the show needs to come back , some people that was kill off needs to come back.
