    Saving Passions Again: Updated

    Friday, December 28 2007


    (NBC)
    Last week, DirecTV publicly stated that they are planning to end their relationship with Passions this summer. This was deja-vu for a lot of the fans who heard a similar note from NBC around this time last year. While few people suspected that Passions would survive and be picked up, the show shocked many skeptics by slimming down and getting a new lease on life. The big question now is: Can it do it once again? While DirecTV has not categorically rejected the possibility of continuing with the show at the end of the summer, the network and fans have already geared up to weigh the other options. Now that the show has been streamlined and costs substantially less to produce than it once did, it may still prove a viable commodity to its owner, NBC. Although no official statements have been made to confirm it, there has already been media speculation that Oxygen (a network recently acquired by NBC ) may take on the show.

    To add to the sense of deja-vu in this situation, fans of the show have already started to campaign to keep it alive through petitions and letter writing. It did work once before and it can work again. (Just check out our article on fan petitions here.) If you're interested in adding your voice to the call to keep Passions alive, you may wish to visit a few of these links and let your voice be heard.

    Well, I'm sure it will all work out. I'm disappointed that it will be moving somewhere? To begin with, they should of not moved it. I truly miss watching passions, especially for folks who are not located in the lower 48 states to have DirecTv. Thanks, fan in Alaska!

    This soap could of had a new life on Direct Tv. It is not Direct Tv's fault. I think the writers let us the viewers and the cast who do an excellant job down. If they would of given us closer on NBC, then started a new slate on Direct Tv I think it would of given it new life and the fan base and demand would of grown. It is really a pity. I feel sorry for the whole cast.

    Come on people let the dead stay dead! Enough is enough already. There is no saving what does not want to be saved. Let it go

    Passions ratings is very bad. It has been moved from station to another. Overseas had problems too, in Australia it has been stopped then put on at AM then stopped again. They are wasting money and I used to love the show but it lost it vibe. They are wasting story lines, they should go off with a big happy ending. Like Gwen and her mother go to prison for life and happy ending for Teresa.

    What is really going on here??!! Passions is the only soap on today that really keeps it interesting. NBC or Oxygen needs to pick it up cause i really LOVE Passions. If it'll help, maybe they should put it on at night or in the evenings when the other soap shows aren't on so they won't have to compete with the veteran soap shows. But all in all i really hope and pray that they save passions and put it back on cable. So come on NBC or Oxygen. Pick it up!!!!!
