Question: I just visited some ladies at a local nursing home. They were devastated that “Days of Our Lives” is being removed from NBC and moving to Peacock. They have no ability to live stream episodes. This is very thoughtless of NBC. That show has been part of their lives for decades. Is there any recourse for my sweet friends. They feel very forgotten.
Answer: NBC announced Aug. 3 that the soap opera, which began in 1965, will be moving to Peacock, the network’s streaming service in September. It will be replaced with a network news show. Judging by the comments on various entertainment websites most “Days of Our Lives” fans are angry and upset about the move.
Michelle Butt, the president and general manager at WXII-Channel 12, which airs “Days of Our Lives,” told us how to register a complaint to NBC about the move to Peacock.

“All of us at WXII realize the connection our viewers have with the residents of Salem. Unfortunately, WXII had no prior knowledge or input into the decision to move ‘Days of our Lives’ to the Peacock. All we can do is encourage our viewers to make their frustrations known with the team at NBC, via email www.nbc.com or by phone, 212-664-4444,” she said.
Q: Why has “Jeopardy” switched to reruns this week with no explanation?
Answer: The show will be in reruns for about a month, according to Larry Audas, the president and general manager at WFMY-Channel 2.
“We’re now into ‘Jeopardy’s’ summer rerun schedule. CBS (distributor of show) will be running reruns from this season until 9/9. This is standard summer programming,” he said.
