Default Passions is Canceled!!

NBC cancels Passions after 8 years. All I can say is, it's about time. I bet you none of the storylines will be resolved when the show ends. JER is an idiot.

I just read about this at another site, I can not believe it. I'll admit that I don't watch Passions, but they should fired JER as headwriter and found someone else. I feel so bad for the cast and crew of Passions, I especially feel bad for the Passions fans. On a side note, at least it's being put out of it's misery. Hopefully it will go out with a bang.

Sorry for the double post, I should have asked this earlier, but since Passions is cancelled, what's going to happen with DOOL? Is another network going to pick it up or will NBC come up with a new soap opera? I wonder what their plan is for DOOL.

I'm not really surpised by the show's cancellation, as it has always been very low-rated, but its demise does make me worry about the state of daytime serials in general. Once a mainstay on American television, viewership has erroded steadily over the past several decades, with only a handful of soaps that are actually thriving. With Passions gone, DOOL will be the only soap on NBC's line-up, the first time in history the network has only had one soap opera airing...

I'm really not shocked or disappointed in this. Though it's absolutely ridiculous how JER handled this show. It was great and unique at first but then it just got absolutely awful at the end. I quit watching around 2002-2003, but came back sporadically to see if anything got better later on, and also to see a couple episodes when Marla Gibbs guest starred, but I found myself tuning out rather quickly. I mean, seriously, if anyone gets a chance, compare the earlier episodes to the ones that air now. It's really almost like watching two entirely different shows.

I don't know when the last episode is, but I guess Passions will be gone by August of this year.

I'm surprised it lasted this long, don't get me wrong Passions is an alright soap opera, but these past couple of years, it's gone downhill, thanks to Reilly and his horrible. I mean he almost destroyed DOOL, luckily he was fired. Yeah, Passions was his baby, but he should have found a decent writer instead of himself. IMO, his writing is toxic to soap operas.
