This Week: More Basketball, But No Missed Soaps

This week, MARCH MADNESS kicks off on Thursday and Friday, pre-empting the CBS Daytime schedule, including THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL.

But unlike last week’s ACC TOURNAMENT carried by LIVE 5 WCSC, MARCH MADNESS won’t make you miss anything on your soaps:  CBS, which is carrying the NCAA Tournament across the Network, isn’t producing soap episodes for those two days.  That means that when soaps resume next Monday, they’ll pick up right where they left off this Wednesday before basketball.

We received complaints from soap fans last week because we had to move the soaps to our second channel, LIVE 5 PLUS, so that we could carry the ACC games.  Those games were not carried by CBS itself, which is why there were soaps to move to begin with.

So the good news is you won’t miss any of the developments with your favorite characters and couples!
