How WATCH ABC Changes Will Affect Viewing of ‘GH,’ ‘The View’ and ‘The Chew’; Shows Also on Hulu Plus



It’s been quite some time since Soap Opera Network last brought its readers a weekly breakdown of what’s going to happen during the upcoming week of soaps. With our new sense of direction and focus as we get ready to enter a new year, and a new phase for the site, we thought it would be a great opportunity to get back into the previews game.

First things first, Soap Opera Network preview posts include the word “PreVUE” in their titles, which is our unique term for spoilers, previews, teasers, etc. This means that when you look for upcoming story for your favorite shows, “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless,” and even some primetime shows, you should always expect the word “PreVUE” in the title. This helps clearly identity what the post is about and informs those not wishing to be spoiled to turn around and stop reading from that point forward. So, without further adieu, here’s a look at what’s going to happen this week (week of December 30, 2013 – January 2, 2014) in Los Angeles, Salem, Port Charles and Genoa City.



“The Young and the Restless” Preview for the week of August 6-10, 2012.
