What happened to the soap opera Passions? Passions was cancelled by NBC in January 2007 because of low ratings. DirecTV saved the soap and began airing it exclusively in the Fall of 2007, hoping that fans would be willing to pay to watch. Unfortunately, the deal didn’t work out as well as expected and the satellite TV provider pulled the plug in December 2007.
Where can I watch Passions the soap opera? That terrific web dramedy about a band of struggling Hollywood actors has returned for its second season and is now available via Hulu (hulu.com/workshop).
What soap did Passions replace? Enter “Passions,” which replaced the venerable but ratings-impaired “Another World” five weeks ago on NBC (Monday through Friday at 2 p.m.). “Peyton Place meets the X-Files” is how creator James E. Reilly describes “Passions,” a mix of teen angst, standard lather and the occult.
