Not that it comes as any big surprise to most people but the failing soap opera Passions has been cancelled to make way for a 4th hour of "Today". The cast members were told during a lunch break and then it was back to work to tape more scenes.
Passions is a soap opera focusing on mainly witchcraft and the oddly occult. It should come as no big surprise to most viewers as it has been on the bottom of the ratings chart for quite some time. No word yet as to when the show's last episode will air but the show will remain on until "Today" starts the expansion.
I can honestly say that I've only caught a few episodes of this and found it very boring and very silly and childish. The only person in my opinion that made the soap worth watching was Timmy. The actor who portrayed him passed away some time ago (last year, I think) and will be missed.
All in all, I don't think too many people will be disappointed about the show's demise. No big loss. Farewell Passions.
