Soap fans are always double-checking the schedules during the holidays so they can see if their favorite daytime dramas are actually going to be on or not. We don’t want you to miss a single brand-new episode so we’ve got the rundown of what you can expect over the New Year’s holiday!
THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will be airing a brand new episode on Tuesday, Dec. 31, although it will be preempted on the West Coast due to CBS Sports coverage of The Sun Bowl. However, fans shouldn’t worry too much because, on Wednesday, Jan 1, B&B will be airing a rerun except on the West Coast, where they will be re-airing Tuesday’s preempted episode for the time zone that missed it on Tuesday!
Viewers of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will want to make sure their DVRs are set because the soap will be airing brand new episodes on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. There’s too much drama going on in Genoa City to take a day off!
NBC Sudser DAYS OF OUR LIVES will air a new episode on Tuesday, Dec. 31 to celebrate New Year’s Eve, but will be taking New Year’s Day off so you don’t have to worry about missing an episode that day.
On ABC, GENERAL HOSPITAL will be airing an encore episode for New Year’s Eve, re-running the Dec. 29, 2017 episode where Carly schemed to get Jason and Sam together for New Year’s as Cassandra tortured Valentin and Anna disappeared. Then, on Wednesday, Jan 1, GH will be taking the entire day off, with ABC airing sports coverage instead.
So take note of the schedule changes for your favorite soaps and you can enjoy your New Year’s celebration while still keeping up with all the drama on TV! And of course, everything will return to normal on Thursday, Jan 2. For more news on your favorite daytime dramas, keep reading Soaps In Depth magazine.
