Days of Our Lives is the only soap opera currently running on NBC.
"Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." For half of a century, those words have introduced and underscored one of daytime drama's rare mainstays. NBC's "Days of our Lives," which turned 50 in November 2015, first premiered as a half-hour drama in 1965 and expanded to an hour 10 years later.
It airs weekday afternoons on NBC.
