Passions is being cancelled


So this is a dark day, NBC has decided to cancel Passions. Running since 1999 this soap has never been afraid to run stories dealing with the supernatural and the forces of good and evil. Passions was put on the chopping block to make room for another hour of the Today Show. Passions will run til the end of the summer supposedly. In anycase I just wanted to put it out there make sure to tell NBC of your displeasure in a kind manner (that is if you are a fan). Anyway the image is courtesy of NBC. I can't express my deep sadness and sorrow that a great show will be leaving Daytime.

    I went to school with Josh Evans who played a demon possessed doll who came to life on the show. He died at 19 in 2001 due to his heart condition that he was born with (the reason he was so small). It's sad that the show is being cancelled cause when I watched that show it was sort of a living legacy to his family and friends that though his life was short, he lived it fully. Now it's cancelled. He DID also play young Grinch in the movie version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, but he'd made a lot of friends on the Passions set. Business before sentiment I suppose.

    It's a damn shame that passions has to be cancelled. It's better then the other soaps out there.

    I can't believe this news, this is absolute bullshit. NBC cares more abt money then its fans.

    I was so suprised to hear about this. I can't believe they would do this, it is the only soap I actually take the time to watch! I can't believe it, NBC is really making bad decisions lately, I am so sad to hear this, but at least thanks for telling us, so I can prepare myself.

    I heard a rumor that soap channel may pick up passions, but they also say when days of our lives contract expires in 2009 that it will be cancelled as well.
