A holiday weekend always has soap fans double-checking the schedules to see if their favorite shows are actually going to be on, so we're here to let you know exactly what to expect over the Thanksgiving holiday so you don't miss a single episode!
THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will be airing a repeat episode on Thanksgiving and will be preempted on Friday, Nov. 29, for sports. But fans of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will need to make sure their DVRs are set because there will be brand new episodes airing on both Thursday and Friday. However, Y&R will be preempted Thursday on the West Coast due to the CBS Thanksgiving Day Parade and will air at 3 p.m. PT on Friday due to CBS Sports coverage of NCAA football. So be sure to seek Thursday's episode out online or on demand and then make sure you adjust your DVR schedule for Friday.
DAYS OF OUR LIVES fans will get two days off as the NBC sudser will be preempted on Thursday for the National Dog Show and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade encore and then again on Friday for hockey.
GENERAL HOSPITAL will actually be airing a brand new episode on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28. Normally they would take the day off, but due to the preemption from the presidential impeachment hearings, they're taking this opportunity to get back on schedule. So make sure you don't miss it! However, fans can take Friday, Nov. 29, off because GH will not be airing at all. It will be preempted for college football.
So make note of the schedule changes for your favorite soaps and don't forget to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family. Then be sure to come back on Monday when everything gets back to normal. Or at least as normal as things can get when you're dealing with baby swaps, evil twins, memory transfers and stuff like that!
