On SOAPnet: the cabler announced on Wednesday that it had acquired the rights to all four seasons of each of the youth-skewed serials, to begin unspooling Apr. 9. Specifically, the early misadventures of Marissa, Ryan and the nubile Newporters will begin airing weekdays at 6 pm/ET, with the Tree Hillers airing an hour earlier, at 5.

Speaking of sudsy matters, don't forget to catch the Scissor Sisters (notice how I said that as if I know who they are?) and TVGuide.com's own Daniel R. Coleridge on NBC's Passions today and Friday. (Check Soaps News for more.)
