You wait for what seems like forever to have a day off from work and watch your soaps as they air… but will they even be on?
Memorial Day this year falls on Monday, May 28th, and Soap Hub knows that it can be very frustrating to sit down to watch some daytime drama and then see… tennis.
Here’s a handy guide to finding out if your soap opera will be airing in its usual slot, airing a repeat, airing later in the day, or possibly not airing at all.
Days of Our Lives
Not only is Days of Our Lives pre-empted on Memorial Day due to coverage of the French Open, but the show will also not air for the same reason on Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8.
Unfortunately, Chabby, Jarlena, Stayla, and the rest of your Salem favorites will have their lives put on hold for a couple days but you can bet that the show’s writers planned for it, so hopefully there will be some pretty exciting cliffhangers to look out for!
The Young and the Restless
Not only will The Young and the Restless be airing in its regular slot, you will get a brand-new episode in the saga of the Abbotts vs. the Newmans, the search for JT as the ladies try to cover it up, and plenty of romance and intrigue.
As General Hospital is apt to do on such days, it will air — but not an original episode. Rather than digging deep into the vault as most fans would prefer, the show is airing the Friday, April 13 episode that showed Robert and Anna searching for Henrik.
The Bold and the Beautiful
Just like its sister show, The Bold and the Beautiful will air a brand-new episode in its regular timeslot. Will Liam have a better handle on his crazy love life by then — or will he still be flipping back and forth between Hope and Steffy?
No matter which show is your favorite or if you watch them all — you can relax in knowing that on Tuesday, May 29, everything will return to regular programming.
