Default Upcoming Olympics vs DOOL

I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere (although I may have missed it), but will the Olympics be pre-empting DOOL again on a daily basis?

And if so, will they be showing DOOL after hours like they did the last time the Olympics took over daytime TV, i.e., the middle of the night?

I really have a hard time with DOOl always being pre-empted by something like Summer and Winter Olympics, Wimbeldon, Golf, Breaking News, and of course...the President.

Can't they pick another channel for pete's sake?

Talking Re: Upcoming Olympics vs DOOL

Days fans can breath easy regarding the 2014 Winter Olympics.

NBC is using a combination of it's cable channels MSNBC, CNBC, and NBC Sports for the bulk of the Olympics coverage. This due to the time zone difference between the location of the games and the US. Coverage NBC's network affiliate will be confined to the evening for the most part

Days will preempted only once on Thursday February 20th for Olympic coverage

There will not be a 2 week break like there was for the 2012 Summer Olympics this time around

We're getting pre-empted for TENNIS?!@?!?!&%^$ Like, Siriusly? I'm Canadian and I love me some Hockey, so I don't object to being pre-empted for hockey. BUT TENNIS?? Even a dog show pre-empting us is questionable.

Thanks Jason!

KK, Days always gets preempted for tennis and golf at those times. For years. I don't mind a dog show as much.

After YEARS of watching Wimbledon interrupt DAYS, I was happy to hear that NBC lost the contract....but then pick up the French Open. Boo.

Thanks Jason for the calendar. Now I wonder if NBC will be airing the Olympics during the middle of the night, cause that is when they show DAYS here in my area. I will be pissed...especially with SoapNet no longer on the air.
