Though plagued since its inception by low overall Nielsen Ratings, Passions has historically been top-rated in key demographics.[3] The series was not renewed by NBC for a full ninth season in 2007 as a result of the network's decision to extend its morning news and talk show Today to a fourth hour.[4] Satellite provider DirecTV soon picked up the series, and began airing new episodes on its original-programming channel The 101 in September 2007.[5] The series runs Monday to Thursday at 2 pm ET/11 am PT, with repeats airing on the weekends.

Storylines

Major storylines throughout the soap's run have included:

  • Theresa's (Lindsay Hartley) schemes to steal Ethan Crane (Travis Schuldt, Eric Martsolf) away from his wife, Gwen (Liza Huber, Natalie Zea, then Huber again). Ultimately Theresa seduced Ethan away from Gwen, who retaliated by exposing the fact that Ethan was not a biological Crane (his father being his mother's secret lover), a move that resulted in Ethan changing his name from Crane to Winthrop. Since then, Theresa and Ethan have married, though the revelation that Theresa's son from another marriage is Ethan's own biological son hangs over her head.
  • Kay's (Taylor Anne Mountz, Gina Marie May, Deanna Wright, Heidi Mueller) desire to be with her cousin Charity's (Molly Stanton, Kristina Sisco) boyfriend, Miguel (Jesse Metcalfe, Adrian Bellani), and her current inability to choose between Miguel and now-husband Fox Crane (Justin Hartley, Mark Cameron Wystrach). After Fox lied about his fake illness and Miguel trying to run him over with his car, Kay has chosen to be with Miguel.
  • Tabitha's (Juliet Mills) desire to wreak havoc upon the citizens of Harmony, her exploits with her "living doll" Timmy, and the raising of her daughter, Endora (Nicole Cox).
  • Eve's (played by Tracey Ross) affair with former Crane heir Julian (Ben Masters) and the search for their long-lost son, who was revealed to be the hermaphrodite tabloid reporter Vincent Clarkson (Phillip Jeanmarie), who wreaked havoc throughout Harmony as the villainous masked blackmailer.
  • Charity's premonitions and powers of good being a target of Tabitha and other evil forces. Her powers often foreshadowed many secrets and events that would affect the people of Harmony. More specifically, Tabitha trying to prevent Charity from making love to Miguel so she would not come into her full powers, the prom boat disaster, Warlock Island, Hecuba the witch, and much more.
  • The recurring character, Norma, trying to kill Tabitha (and Timmy during his time on the show)
  • Whitney's (Brook Kerr) romantic relationship with Chad (Donn Swaby, Charles Divins); when Chad was mistakenly assumed to be Whitney's long-lost brother, Chad turned to a homosexual relationship with Vincent Clarkson, who later revealed that he seduced Chad to punish Whitney for growing up with her mother.
  • Ivy's (Kim Johnston Ulrich) schemes to win back her first love Sam (James Hyde), with whom she conceived her son Ethan behind her husband Julian Crane's back.
  • Sheridan (McKenzie Westmore) and Luis's (Galen Gering) relationship, which collapsed when Sheridan chose to marry Luis's brother Antonio (Christopher Douglas) rather than be with Luis. Their relationship was further strained when Sheridan had accused Luis of not doing anything to find their son Marty, who was kidnapped by Luis's psycho ex lover Beth,(Kelli McCarty), and was presumed dead. When Luis attempted to move on with his life by beginning a relationship with Sheridan's niece, Fancy (Emily Harper), Sheridan transformed from heroine to villain and vowed to destroy both Fancy and Luis's lives if she could not have Luis. This has led Sheridan, among other crimes, to allow Luis to be convicted and executed for a murder he did not commit, to attempt to murder Luis's sister Theresa, to make Fancy look like she is crazy and lying about being attacked, and to attempt to slander Fancy's good name; this culminated with the arrival of Fancy's sister Pretty, whom Fancy accidentally disfigured when Pretty provoked a physical altercation with her sister over a boy, and Luis finally realizing what Sheridan had been up to and wanting nothing more to do with her.
  • Alistair's (David Bailey, John Reilly) continuing efforts to meddle in the lives of the citizens of Harmony, and recently his quest for ultimate power, including the impersonation of a monk to lure sixteen people from Harmony to Rome as pawns in his scheme.

History

Passions debuted with major fanfare (Reilly had been credited for a large surge in the ratings for Days of our Lives) but also some controversy (lead heroine Sheridan's best friend was the late Princess Diana, and, in flashbacks, Sheridan spoke to Diana on the phone right before she was killed).

For much of the first three to four years of the series, supernatural elements such as witches, warlocks, and closet doors leading to Hell were major plot points. One central character was Charity (Molly Stanton, Kristina Sisco), a saccharine young woman who would regularly become possessed by the "forces of evil" and turn into "Evil Charity" or "Zombie Charity." NBC even made a deal with the owners of Bewitched to allow "Dr. Bombay" to appear in scenes with witch Tabitha Lenox (not to be confused with Bewitched's Tabitha Stevens). "Dr. Bombay" appeared on three occasions, but Bewitched nixed any future visits; however, when Tabitha had a child in 2003, she named the baby Endora. Tabitha also stated on an episode that her mother was named Samantha and that her father was a mortal named Darren. Recently, a new storyline brought back some of these elements with the introduction of the character Siren, a mermaid that Endora brought to life and made human to keep Kay from leaving Fox for Miguel.

Over time, Passions moved away from supernatural elements and began to concentrate on the usual array of love triangles and returns from the dead. One of their most popular storylines was the interracial romance between filthy rich letch Julian Crane (Ben Masters) and icy doctor Eve Russell (Tracey Ross). Their '70s love affair produced a child, but Julian's father Alistair demanded they break up so Julian could marry a more "suitable" (white) woman. Eve married former tennis star TC (Rodney Van Johnson) and had two daughters, Whitney (Brook Kerr) and Simone (Lena Cardwell, Chrystee Pharris-Larkins, then Cathy Jenéen Doe). Years later, the revelations of Julian and Eve's love as well as the news that Eve had caused the car accident which ended TC's tennis career led TC to dump Eve and take up with her half-sister, Liz. Julian, who had never stopped loving Eve, reunited with her after giving up his boozing and adulterous ways. During the summer of 2005, TC and Eve's youngest daughter Simone came out as a lesbian. Passions made daytime history by being the only serial to show two women (Simone and Rae) in bed making love. Most recently, Chad was revealed to be the child of Alistair and Liz, allowing him and Whitney to get married and raise their son Miles.

A major storyline started on October 10, 2006 entitled "Passions: Tabloid Truth" This was another interactive storyline not unlike "Passions: Red" and "Passions: Vendetta" During the 12-week umbrella story we will see the some of the shows biggest secrets revealed via tabloid reporter JT Cornell. In the last months of Passions on NBC a mysterious half man and half woman blackmailer was practically blackmailing the entire hamlet of Harmony and that lead to many secrets being revealed. The blackmailer turned out to be Vincent the long lost son/daughter of Eve and Julian, who happens to be intersexed which leads many fans to think Vincent and Valerie are the same person since they are never shown together. Valerie knew who their child was months before it was revealed to be Vincent.

Controversy

When it premiered in 1999, Passions featured a controversial storyline in which Sheridan Crane was identified as a close friend of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. In the storyline, Sheridan recalled speaking to Diana on the phone immediately prior to the 1997 car accident which took the Princess' life. Sheridan also had a similar accident in the same Paris tunnel, and spoke to a "guardian Angel Diana" who urged her to fight to survive.[9] Sheridan later adopted the name Diana after a boating accident that resulted in amnesia. This article is about the year. ... Princess Diana redirects here. ...


In 2003, Passions submitted a trained orangutan named BamBam, who had been portraying the recurring role of Precious, for a Daytime Emmy Award. Precious was the non-speaking live-in nurse and caregiver for elderly Edna Wallace (Kathleen Noone), and held an unrequited love for Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald (depicted in elaborate fantasy sequences). In early 2004, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which administers the awards, disallowed the entry, with the following statement: Year 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Our ruling is based on the belief that the Academy must draw a line of distinction between animal characters that aren't capable of speaking parts and human actors whose personal interpretation in character portrayal creates nuance and audience engagement that uniquely qualifies those performers for consideration of television's highest honor.

In recent years, homosexuality has become a focal point of several of Passions' storylines. In 2007, Passions began the storyline of Chad Harris (Charles Divins) cheating on his wife Whitney (Brook Kerr) with a man (his biological nephew, Vincent, played by Phillip Jeanmarie). Passions also featured the lesbian union of Simone Russell (Cathy Jeneen Doe) and her partner Rae Thomas (Jossara Jinaro). Another recurring couple with an implied lesbian relationship is Norma and Edna, who met in a mental instution and became allies against Tabitha. In an August 2007 episode they were seen dancing romantically and talking about their love life.

NBC finale

The final airdate on NBC for Passions was September 7, 2007. The episode, while answering a few questions, was largely made up of cliffhangers designed to entice viewers to DirecTV.

  • Miguel Lopez-Fitzgerald finally found out that Tabitha Lenox is a witch, and that his girlfriend, Kay Bennett, possesses magical powers. When demons from Tabitha's basement tried to kidnap Tabitha's daughter, Endora, Miguel rushed after the little girl to save her and became trapped in Tabitha's basement. When Tabitha and Kay were finally able to get into the basement, it was empty; the Boys in the Basement had left, and they had apparently taken Miguel and Endora with them.
  • While Viki slept in her room, Fox Crane and Esme Vanderheusen made love for the first time; each admitted to feeling as if they'd "always been together." When Fox got up to get some wine, a loud sound was heard. Esme hid under the covers and asked Fox what had happened, and he replied, "A gunshot." When she re-emerged from beneath the covers, she found Fox lying on the floor, a gunshot wound in his chest and blood trickling from his mouth; she began to scream for help, and he appeared to die.
  • Eve Russell went to visit Valerie Davis and inform her that her ex-boyfriend, Vincent Clarkson, had fallen from a cliff and died. After Eve left, Valerie began to converse with Vincent, who answered with Valerie's mouth. Looking in the mirror, Valerie ripped off her mask and revealed Vincent beneath.
  • Spike Lester showed Sheridan Crane a video of her son, Marty Lopez-Fitzgerald, in an unknown playroom. When he zoomed in on a calendar, which showed September 2007, Sheridan received proof that her son did not die in a train accident a year earlier.
  • Alistair Crane attempted to use his mind-control device to force his granddaughter, Fancy, to slap and verbally abuse her boyfriend, Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald. The device malfunctioned, though, and gave Fancy a near-fatal headache. The headache stopped, but Fancy soon received a heavy nosebleed, and fainted.
  • After learning that their son, Ethan, had awoken from his coma, Sam Bennett and Ivy Winthrop kissed, apparently reuniting. In earlier scenes, Sam also seemed to have forgiven Ivy for her schemes to break him apart from his late wife, Grace.
  • Ethan Winthrop finally awoke from his coma and remembered his wife, Theresa, telling him that he had a son. While Theresa waited for Pilar to bring in her son with Ethan, Little Ethan, Ethan's ex-wife, Gwen, arrived with an infant baby boy and announced that he was her son with Ethan. (Theresa only never told Ethan that he had a son, never clarifying that said son was Little Ethan, or that she was the mother of his son.)

Developments since the DirecTV move

Sheridan convinces Luis to help her find him but continues to treat Luis poorly, going so far as to refuse to allow him to help her find their son unless he keeps Fancy (who's brain implant does not work 100% of the time, to Alister Cranes' dismay) in the dark about Marty being alive. However, Sheridan is unaware that Spike is manipulating her and Luis to keep them from finding Marty.


Kay and Tabitha are ordered to create havok and misery in exchange for the dark side returning Endora and Miguel to them. Their first assignment of evil is to destroy Fancy's heart by reuniting Sheridan with Luis (a drastic change of previous portrayals of the dark side's interest in Sheridan and Luis, due to the unpopularity of Sheridan with fans and the popularity of Fancy and Luis as a supercouple). Kay refused to go along with this demand and shrinks Tabitha and places her into a magical paper bag to prevent her from hurting Fancy. Luke and Lauras record-breaking wedding, November 16, 1981 on the daytime drama General Hospital. ...


The newly revealed hermaphrodite Vincent begins his quest to gaslight his mother Eve, by appearing to her intermittently, sometimes using technology that projects himself as a ghostly apparition. This causes Eve to think she's going insane and Eve onca again begins drinking, abusing prescription medication, and ultimately slits her wrist in a failed suicide attempt. Vincent also, in his guise as Valerie, seduces his own father Julian into having sex with him/her, ultimately becoming pregnant as a result.


Fox dies from his gunshot wound and Julian agrees to let Esme and Viki live in the Crane mansion. However, two more of Esme's lovers die after their first dates with Esme, leading to her believing that she is cursed.


Ivy, still bitter towards Kay over how her relationship with Fox ended, tries to convince Sam that Kay is responsible for all the recent unsolved murders in Harmony, as well as the sudden disappearance of Tabitha, Endora and Miguel. Tabitha, still in the paper bag doesn't make it easier for Kay by planting incriminating evidence against her using magic at the scenes of murders of Esme's various lovers, all. Later, Ivy stomps on the paper bag Tabitha in a fit of anger, unknowingly freeing Tabitha in the process. Tabitha then confronts Kay, who reluctantly agrees to allow Tabitha to continue to her unholy quest to help Sheridan in exchange for her using her powers to undo the frame job she put into motion.


Gwen and Ethan's son Jonathan is ill, due to him being a premature birth and becomes even sicker when Vincent alters a prescription Eve wrote for the child that makes him deathly ill. Meanwhile, Rebecca and Gwen discover a shocking secret about Pilar -- Pilar killed her old friend Juanita's husband while he was raping her after she learned that he was still an active organized crime figure in Mexico. When the police came after Pilar called them, the police killed her children in a shoot-out and arrested Juanita herself, who blames Pilar for her loss of her husband and children, and vows that someday she'll kill Pilar and her whole family in revenge. Rebecca and Gwen use this knowledge to force Pilar to make Theresa remain silent about Little Ethan also being Ethan's son and make her forsake Ethan once and for all. However, Rebecca contacted Juanita anyway and told her Pilar is in New England. After Vincent nearly kills baby Jonathan via the altered prescription, Gwen refuses to allow Jonathan to receive any further medical treatment from Eve or the hospital Eve works at, culminating in her revealing that she did not put Ethan on her son's birth certificate, which in turn keeps Ethan from forcing Gwen to let Eve continue to treat their child. Organized crime or criminal organizations are groups or operations run by criminals, most commonly for the purpose of generating a monetary profit. ...


Trademarks

Pop culture spoofs

Over its run, Passions has become widely known for its numerous parodies of pop culture. One fan favorite was the 2003 spoof of the 2002 film Chicago, in which character Edna Wallace fantasized that she, her demented daughter, Beth, Charlie, and her orangutan caretaker, Precious, had been incarcerated for the kidnapping of Sheridan Lopez-Fitzgerald and her unborn son, Marty. In this fantasy, the three women sang "I Ain't Sorry", a parody of "Cell Block Tango". The song was performed in the style of musical theatre, and was simultaneously mocked and adored by fans. Another spoof popular with the fans was the 2006 Bollywood spoof, in which Gwen dreamt of a life in India with her husband, Ethan, far away from his ex-fiancée, Theresa. The original song accompanying this spoof, "Love is Ecstasy", was a hit with fans, and NBC even put both a video clip and a downloadable mp3 version of the song on their website. The show has also featured storylines and sequences paying homage to or parodying films and books like Titanic, Brokeback Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Wizard of Oz, The Da Vinci Code, The Little Mermaid and Wicked.

Dream sequences

One of Passions' most notorious trademarks is the false "dream sequence". Often, the show will play out an outlandish event, or explode a huge secret viewers have longtime been waiting to see, only to immediately after go back and reveal it all to be a day dream. This dream sequence can last anywhere from a few scenes to a few episodes, typically beginning without warning. On Passions, often a dream sequence will begin with no visual cues of any sort what so ever. Often going as far to include contradictory elements to give the dream sequence credence. (For instance, another character may show up within the dream wearing an outfit, or revealing information that the daydreamer had no possible way of knowing about beforehand.) While a veteran viewer can usually spot a fake dream sequence once it's neared its climax, the fake dream sequence tend to cause confusion amongst the more casual viewer who may not get to catch the revelation that it was all dream.


Roman Catholicism

Roman Catholicism and its principles figure greatly into the show's themes. Several characters, including Grace Bennett and Pilar Lopez-Fitzgerald, are portrayed as being particularly devout Catholics, often praying with a rosary. Father Lonigan, the blind priest, has the ability to sense evil, causing lots of trouble for Tabitha over the years. Many theological debates on the importance of Catholic marriage vows have arisen over the years as well, as various characters attempt to divorce or remarry. The Roman Catholic Church, most often spoken of simply as the Catholic Church, is the largest Christian church, with over one billion members. ... Our Lady of Lourdes - Mary appearing at Lourdes with Rosary beads. ... Father Lonigan is a minor fictional character on NBCs daytime drama Passions. ...


Fate and "destined" couples

Another trademark of the serial is its preoccupation with the concepts of fate and soulmates. Since the show's first episode in 1999, the writers have pushed several couples onto the fans, claiming that they are "fated", and, with few short-lived exceptions, have failed to mix up any of the relationships. Some of the early "fated" couples were considered to be those of Luis and Sheridan, Ethan and Theresa, Miguel and Charity, and Chad and Whitney. Common indications of a couple's status as "fated" include (but are not necessarily limited to) Tabitha's desire to split said couple up, an unshakeable love that survives numerous break-ups and relationships with third parties, and/or an ability of one character, or perhaps both characters, to "sense" when his/her "soulmate" is in danger. However, despite the fact that each of these couples has existed as a storyline since the first episodes, the show seems to have given up on the "fated" angle as it approaches its end. Ethan and Theresa are still in love and fighting to be together, but Miguel is now in love with Kay (not Charity), Luis loves Fancy (not Sheridan, though Sheridan schemes to get him back), and Whitney recently left Chad after finding out about his affair with Vincent. Chad later died. For other uses, see Destiny (disambiguation). ... This article is about the term, soulmate. For the Natasha Bedingfield song, see Soulmate (song). ...


Summertime extravaganzas

Likely due to Passions' school-aged target audience, the show often cooks up large, wild storylines for the summer, which often, but not always, take place in a city outside of Harmony. In 1999, a carnival came to town as characters were introduced; 2000 saw Luis and Sheridan traveling to New Mexico in search of his then-missing father, Martin Fitzgerald, and 2001 witnessed the failed double-wedding of popular couples Luis and Sheridan and Ethan and Theresa, and their subsequent journey to Bermuda, where Sheridan apparently perished in a boat explosion and Theresa wound up married to Ethan's ex-stepfather, Julian Crane. In 2002, Julian and Timmy set out on a journey in the magical land of Oz as Theresa was "executed" for Julian's "murder"; 2003 saw six characters (Chad, Whitney, Fox, Theresa, Ethan, and Gwen, collectively known as the "LA Six") travel to Los Angeles for the summer (and into October), while, in 2004, Luis and Sheridan traveled to Puerto Arena, Mexico, to retrieve his younger sister, Paloma (and ended up finding his missing father, Martin, and her "dead" mother, Katherine). The plot of the summer in 2005 was a deadly earthquake and tsumani, which destroyed much of Harmony and resulted in the death of James's mother, Maureen, while 2006 saw the extravagant Passions Vendetta plot,[11] in which Alistair lured seventeen people (Whitney, Simone, Paloma, Chad, Ethan, Theresa, Gwen, Lena, Spike, Jessica, Maya, Noah, Esme, Fancy, Luis, Beth, and Marty) to Rome, where he planned to take over the world with a chalice stolen from the Pope's private chambers; the plot saw the death of Lena, Maya, Alistair, Beth, and Marty. Summer 2007 saw the resolution of the "blackmailer" storyline as Vincent Clarkson was revealed to be the half-man/half-woman blackmailer and Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald was saved at the last minute from execution for Vincent's crimes.

Sexual violence

Another recurring theme on Passions is sexual violence. Many storylines, especially since 2005, have included rape as a plot point. For the domesticated crop plant called rape, see rapeseed. ...


In 2005, so many plotlines came to involve an element of rape that fans began to refer to that year as the "Year of the Rapes". Early that year, Paloma Lopez-Fitzgerald was sexually assaulted during a club raid, and Jessica Bennett was also raped a few weeks later while at a club. Also early in the year, Alistair Crane repeatedly raped his wife, Katherine Crane, while at the Crane Compound. Late in May, heiress Fancy Crane was nearly raped by a man in Las Vegas who demanded "payment" for letting her into a party after she lost her invitation. During the tsunami and later in November, Liz Sanbourne attempted to rape Julian Crane at knifepoint. In August, Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald was raped by Alistair Crane when she refused to pay him (with sex) for helping her with visitation of her infant daughter, Jane; Theresa later married Alistair, and he continued to rape her throughout their marriage. Also in August or September, Kay Bennett was attacked by a gang of men while walking through the park at night, though Fox Crane soon arrived and the two defeated the group. Liz Sanbourne also revealed during the tsunami that Julian Crane had raped her in Boston many years previously (she later revealed that it had been Alistair who had done the deed, thus producing a son, Chad Harris-Crane).

Oddly enough, men on the show are equally as likely to be violated as women.

Eerie deaths

One unfortunate trademark for Passions has been eerie deaths. In 2002, Josh Ryan Evans, who played Tabitha's extremely popular doll sidekick Timmy, died while on medical leave, just as scenes were airing where Timmy died in the hospital and went to Heaven. Passions had planned to revive the character in a few months once Evans returned from his own surgery, but instead had to write Timmy out. After five years of evil Crane patriarch Alistair being heard but never having his face seen (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer), Passions finally cast the role with longtime daytime vet David Bailey. Bailey was a hit with the cast as well as the fans, but on Thanksgiving Day 2004, he drowned in his pool, just as scenes were airing where various characters tried to kill Alistair, who actually suffered clinical death before being magically revived by Tabitha. Again, the viewers and the producers were stunned, but the show had no choice but to recast the pivotal role (with John Reilly). Also see: 2002 (number). ...

Breaking the fourth wall

With its humor and occasional tongue-in-cheek tone, Passions has been known to "break the fourth wall," or somehow call attention to the fact that the show is fictional. In an early episode, Kay, Simone and Zombie Charity were seen actually watching Passions. In a 2002 episode Theresa was giving birth while stuck in a cabin with Ethan and Gwen; she had a hallucination in which the three of them did a dance together and sang the show's theme. In 2004, TC made a reference to "that crazy soap after Days of our Lives", which in most areas airs before Passions. In one episode Fancy Crane used a magazine to hide her face from Noah; the magazine had an image of the then-unseen Rachel Barrett with the sentence "Who is she?" under the Passions logo. Fancy later commented that serials "are just like life; you never know what's going to happen!" In an early 2006 episode, Ivy and assistant Valerie were searching on the internet for Miguel to bring him back to Harmony and interfere with Fox and Kay's relationship. They couldn't find him, but Valerie tracked down his last place of employment: he was last seen working as a gardener in some suburban town on a street called Wisteria Lane. At that time, Jesse Metcalfe (ex-Miguel) was playing a gardener on the prime-time serial Desperate Housewives, which takes place on a street called Wisteria Lane. In the March 30, 2006 episode, while Passions reruns were airing on the Sci-Fi Channel, Simone compared life in Harmony to living in a show on the Sci-Fi Channel.[12] Similarly, in the August 10, 2006 episode, Theresa commented that her office wasn't like a NBC daytime serial, and that she wouldn't hire somebody just because he looked like Jesse Metcalfe (who had portrayed her brother Miguel from 1999-2004). A similar inside joke occurred when the character Fancy had a dream that she was a cheerleader; in real life, Fancy's portrayer Emily Harper was a "Laker Girl" (cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers) from 2000-2003.

Promotion and product placement

During its NBC run, Passions was known to "promote" other NBC programming within its storylines, and to incorporate commercial products into the plot in a promotional tactic known as product placement.

In a 2004 episode, TC watched an NBC ad for Days of our Lives on his TV, and went on to praise the writers of Days of our Lives for coming up with such good storylines; Days, at that time, was under the helm of James E. Reilly, head writer of Passions. In the September 4, 2006, episode, Fox was sucked into a black hole; he then told Tabitha that it was the kind of black hole that one gets sucked into on the Sci Fi Channel, which was the channel on which Passions repeats aired in 2006. Tabitha then told him stick with NBC (Passions' network). In an episode later in September 2006, Siren tried to get Miguel into bed by singing her Siren's song. Miguel told her that she should not audition for America's Got Talent, which airs on NBC. In another episode, Tabitha talked about The Biggest Loser season finale, which was also aired on NBC. A more recent episode featured characters watching a trailer for the 2007 Diane Keaton film Because I Said So (produced by Universal Studios, which, like NBC, is owned by General Electric).

Theme song and opening sequence

The theme song for Passions is titled "Breathe," performed by Jane French and written by French and John Henry Kreitler. A long version of this theme was also released but was never used on the show. Jane French is an Emmy-nominated American singer/songwriter. ...


The opening title sequence used since the show's premiere in 1999, features shots of the city of Harmony and its landmarks. The sequence opens and closes with the show's logo in an italic typeface and in an Arial Black typeface in generic caps posted in front of the cursive form of the title. From time to time, the opening theme is shortened to the last two verses to fit in extra scene time. This example of a title sequence, from long-running serial drama Another World, was seen from 1966 to 1981, making it one of the longest-running continuous title sequences on television. ...


Passions is one of the few American serials that, with the exception of occasional abbreviated versions of the intro, has not changed its opening theme since the series debut.

In January 2001, HarperEntertainment released Hidden Passions: Secrets from the Diaries of Tabitha Lenox, an inside look into the history of Passions involving all the major characters, written from the viewpoint of Tabitha Lenox. A storyline involving the character of Tabitha and Timmy and the promotion of this book was aired on the show. During this time when the show enjoyed its peak popularity, the book even reached #4 on the New York Times Best Seller list. The novel was billed as being canonical, but the televised canon has diverged significantly from the novel since that time. For example, Rachel Barrett presumably did die in a boating accident decades earlier, and the death scene of her sister, Katherine, who was recently revealed to be alive, is included in the novel. In addition, the book portrayed Eve Johnson Russell as the daughter of a wealthy society couple in Boston, but the show has more recently revealed an upbringing in the rural South.

Ratings/broadcasting history

As a replacement for the long-running serial Another World, Passions claimed AW's 2 PM timeslot when it debuted on NBC on July 5, 1999, and spent its entire NBC run there. Another World was an NBC soap opera that ran from May 4, 1964 to June 25, 1999. ...


Passions remained dead last in the daytime ratings for virtually its entire eight-year NBC run. During the 2002-2003 season, when the show was possibly at the peak of its popularity, the show averaged a weekly 2.1-2.3 rating (which at that time equaled roughly 2 million viewers). However, the ratings slowly declined with each passing year, to the point that the show averaged a 1.3 weekly rating (about 1.7 million viewers) throughout much of the 2006-2007 season, its final year on NBC, especially after the network's January 2007 announcement that it was cancelling the series. The final episode on NBC had a rating of 1.3 (around 1.4 million viewers). [citation needed] The following is a list of television ratings and rankings for American daytime soap operas. ...


Passions was broadcast nationally in Australia on the Seven Network each weekday at 3 pm, beginning in 2001 with the series' 1999 episodes. In 2005, the series was moved to an earlier 9.30 am timeslot, before the show's international licensing was cancelled due to the music copyright fees.[16] The series also aired in Canada, first on CTV and later on Global, for its entire NBC run.
