    well, i guess it was inevitable.
    just hate not seeing the show for (2) weeks.
    i’ve always wondered why we have sports channels if it is not to carry things like olympics, etc..
    just blowing off a little steam….

  2. From Rose

    I am so bummed! 2 weeks?!? I am guessing the Today show will still be on for 5 hours a day as usual.

  3. From tori

    While I like some part of the Olympics I would much rather see DOOL. I am going to be so lost without them for 2 whole weeks.

  4. From dailyupdate

    I think we should at least have an option…honestly, I don’t care about sports or the Olympics too much, and it should be MY choice if I want to watch my soap opera instead. Just frustrated that someone else gets to choose and limit what I watch and what I don’t.

  5. From Tricia

    I will be on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens to Sami & EJ. I love them together.

  6. From grannyg

    As paying subscribers I think we should be able to choose what we want to watch. I DVR days so it’s not like I sit by the tv waiting for it to come on every day…I just don’t care for sports…especially the olympics and think I should be able to choose when I’ m paying for it!

  7. From Amanda

    I agree with GrannyG. I DVR DOOL also. Like somebody else also said, “there are sports channels…why cant the Olympics be on there”? & I like to watch the Olympics……..

  8. From Davidand Sandy

    I am a 58 year old man and as much as I hate to admit it, I watch this soap. They can put the friggin’ Olympics on msnbc or whatever, or show it a 4 am or whatever so we can DVR it

  9. From bebelapin

    man im gonna be haveing days with drawls dont do that to me

  10. From Debra

    I have the same comment as most–if we have sports channels why aren’t the olympics on them. Many of the shows on TV these days are not worth watching and the ones that are are often interupted by sports or presidential speeches….

  11. From Larry

    It will be awful without DOOL for 2 weeks.I love Dvring and watching it with my wife then printing out the blogs and reading them while Im on break at work.I love local sports but Olympics totally bore me.

  12. From Kat

    I would like to see the exec on NBC who thought soap fans would be happy about giving up their soap for two weeks. Pay attention advertisers soap fans are not going to swap out their soap for the Olympics.

  13. From Nancy

    Why do we have sports channels???? Oh, so they can pre empt our afternoon shows? Don’t get it. Why not show it at night for 2 weeks, I dvr anyway… I hate this time when the pre empt for Tennis and Olympics…. Ridiculous….. Pisses me off actually. NBC you suck.

  14. From luckymare

    THIS IS TOTALLY UNFAIR—IN THE PAST DOOL WOULD AIR AT 2 OR 4AM THEN YOU COULD SET AN ALARM OR DVR–THEY HAVE LEFT US WITH NO CHOICE:(
    PLUS THEY ALSO GAVE US NUMEROUS CLIFFHANGERS—UGGGGGGGG HOW HORRID IS THAT:( I KNOW THERE ARE SOME EXITING THE SHOW & PERHAPS THIS IS EASY WAY OUT/BUT SHOULD HAVE WAITED TIL AFTER OLYMPICS FOR THIS BIG A STORYLINE TO CARRY IT THROUGH–WAITING TIL THE OLYMPICS IS OVER IS JUST SOOOOO UNACCEPTABLE—-

  15. From Brenda

    Its a big cliffhanger on Friday and now we have to wait for 2 weeks to see what happens. Why don’t they put these olympics on sports channel. That’s what its for. Its awful we have to wait 2 weeks. Its my favorite soap.
