At least mostly.

There was a time when soap operas reigned supreme, but the numbers have dwindled over the years as, one by one, the daytime dramas have been canceled.

‘Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem’

Lisa Rinna as Billie Reed is shown in a scene from "Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem."

If we can’t get more soaps, we will gladly take a limited series.

“Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem” features some fan favorites of the long-running soap, including Lisa Rinna, Deidre Hall, Eileen Davidson and Jackée Harry in this spin-off that includes a story line about missing jewels.

It’s now streaming on Peacock.

‘Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.’

Peyton Elizabeth Lee stars in "Doogie Kameāloha, M.D."

Hollywood loves to celebrate youth culture.

That was the case back in 1989 when “Doogie Howser, M.D.” debuted — and it’s even more so now with “Doogie Kameāloha M.D.,” which moves the concept of a superbrainy teen doctor to the island of Hawaii.

This time around, the physician is a young woman, played by Peyton Elizabeth Lee, who has to juggle work along with the typical teen growing pains.

The new show is streaming on Disney+.

‘Blood Brothers: Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali’

Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali had an unlikely friendship. And yet it made sense, given the dynamic nature of both of their personalities.

It’s a nice, nonfiction balance to the Oscar-nominated “One Night in Miami,” the award-winning film by actress-director Regina King that imagined a now-famous meeting between the activist, the boxer, NFL star Jim Brown, and singer Sam Cooke.

Even if you thought you knew everything about Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, this doc may surprise you.

It’s currently streaming on Netflix.

Two things to listen to

Kacey Musgraves attends the 53rd annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, November 13, 2019.

Kacey Musgraves has both a new album and a short film based on it.

“Star-Crossed” is the fourth album from the country star, who has stoked speculation that this new one might be more pop than country.

What we do know is that heartbreak is a major theme of the album, and the film — which will play at some AMC theaters — is described as a “modern tragedy in 3 acts.”

And yes, her divorce last year from her husband of nearly three years, musician Ruston Kelly, was an inspiration.

“I wasn’t going to be a real country artist without at least one divorce under my belt,” Musgraves told The New York Times.

“Star-Crossed” drops Friday.

Reggaeton star J Balvin’s new album is titled “Jose,” and it’s the follow-up to last year’s “Colores.”
