Thursday, Nov. 22 is Thanksgiving, and as all soap fans know, holidays can mean schedule changes for GENERAL HOSPITAL, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, DAYS OF OUR LIVES, and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. So we’re here to fill you in on the schedule changes so you don’t miss a single episode of the drama, romance, and excitement on any of your favorite shows!
On Thanksgiving, GH will actually be airing a rerun of a classic episode. And while fans have been complaining recently that the encores they’ve been airing on holidays haven’t really been old enough, this year, they’re reaching all the way back to 2000! “You asked for more classic GH encores and this Thursday, we’re diving into the vault for a special Thanksgiving episode from 18 years ago!” tweeted ABC exec Nathan Varni. “Please tune in to support this special encore Thursday.”
In this classic Thanksgiving episode, Sonny seals a deal with Laura and returns home to comfort Carly. During that time, Carly was played by Sarah Brown, and this was the couple’s first Thanksgiving together. So be sure to tune in, and perhaps ABC will be inspired to air even more vintage episodes on future holidays! Plus, you’re going to want to enjoy it, because GH will be preempted on Friday for sports.
Y&R and B&B will both be preempted on Thanksgiving, but on Friday, Nov. 23, Y&R will be airing a new episode. However, due to CBS Sports coverage of NCAA Football, it will air at 12:30 p.m. ET, 11 a.m. CT, and 3 p.m. PT, so adjust your schedule accordingly. B&B fans can also take Friday off because the soap will be preempted that day as well.
DAYS fans will also get a couple days off from the drama in Salem. On Thursday, NBC will be airing The National Dog Show, and on Friday, NHL Hockey.
So enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends, and be sure to come back on Monday when the daily drama resumes its regular schedule! For all the latest GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
