NBC Daytime was the daytime programming block of NBC. It historically featured a large number of soap operas and game shows. Its main competitors were CBS Daytime and ABC Daytime.

Game shows were discontinued from NBC Daytime's lineup in 1994 and soap operas were largely dropped in the 1980s and the 1990s. By the 2000s, NBC Daytime had been reduced to only two shows: Days of Our Lives and Passions.

Passions was moved to DirecTV's 101 Network in 2007, resulting in the immediate discontinuation of the NBC Daytime branding. As such, NBC no longer has a daytime programming block, but the network continues to air Days of our Lives. The former official website of NBC Daytime now redirects to the NBC website for Days of our Lives.
