Soap Operas Pre-empted During Thanksgiving Holiday
Daytime takes a break for a turkey feast with all of the fixings.
November is a time where many make yearly plans to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with family and friends. Some travel to join loved ones, many prepare meals to welcome others into their home, and various people, including soap opera stars, lend their time volunteering at local soup kitchens and shelters in order to make the holiday extra special for those in need. Amid the festive preparations, Soaps.com is back to bring readers the annual scheduling changes during the Thanksgiving holiday season, which includes Black Friday.
Please take note of the ABC, CBS and NBC pre-emptions…
