    I am actually around 3 weeks behind on watching Y&R, so I'm actually ok with preemptions. I might actually have a chance to catch up!

    That's great, Boldbeautiful. Usually people are quite angry!

    I have put up with March Madness since I started watching soaps. I don't like it and think it is rediculous to preempt shows in the daytime for games that most people can't watch because they are at work. For those that want to watch the games, put them on espn, as everybody has cable now. CBS should know they have a much bigger audience in those who watch soaps than those who watch Bball. If they feel they have to air the games then do it after the soaps(at 2:00pm), cause nobody watches The Talk and the game show anyway. Most (myself included turn to ABC for those soaps), especially since they got rid of ATWT and GL. I personally will be watching some other old soap on soapnet this Thursday and Friday until 2:00pm each day, or will be doing some spring cleaning during that time.
    One last thing, did I say how much I hate March Madness and Bball. Oh and Also when the shows are preempted for Tennis too. Hate preempts. Okay rant over.

    Will Thursday & Fridays episodes be current on SoapNet, or will you show older shows of Y&R?

    I totally agree with Lady53. People who watch BBall are usually at work during the day anyway.

    why don't they put the March madness on in the wee hours of the moring. I don't care for basketball, baseball or anything else that interfers with the y&r. that is the only soap i watch and i hate when they take it off leave my soap alone if someone wants to watch March Madness like I said put it on in the early hours and let them tape it or get up to watch it. Why is it always the soaps they take off to put that kind of stuff on. CBS listen this is from a loyal soap opera base that watches cbs for many years now. Have watched Y&R since it began in 73 and it is the only soap that I have stayed with all these years
