Many fans have known and have noticed that SOAPnet has removed Knots Landing from the weekday line-up effective today. They went through the cycle and finished yesterday and now the short lived Paper Dolls is airing in that slot instead. And when that show is finished, they will air another short lived soap, Pasadena. After that, let's hope Knots returns to the weekday line-up. You can still catch Knots Landing however on Saturday nights at 9 p.m. So all is not lost!
