The Days of our Lives still come on but right now the Young and the Restless and the Bold and the Beautiful are reruns because they stop production due to coronavirus. Maybe Days still has more episodes already filmed. And I think General Hospital still has new shows as well.
But not as many soap operas as they used to be, as the New York versions went off the air such as Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Edge of Night, All My Children, and One Life to Live. I thought the New York shows overall had better writing and more legendary characters such as Erica Kane, Phoebe Tyler, Dorian Lord, Victoria Lord, and Reva Shayne. And legendary As the World Turns actress Eileen Fulton was born in Asheville and also apparently had lived in Concord and became famous as Lisa.
The soaps today miss such legendary performers, especially since Mrs. Chancellor passed away on the Young and the Restless. All they have left now is Victor Newman who is great and Jill still appears sometimes.
