As The World Turns Wraps

atwt2000

I guess I long last I can answer my own long time question about which soap I love best ATWT or GL. While I will miss As the World Turns very much and feel at a loss every day at 1 PM, I don’t feel an compulsion at all to create a blog  or a YouTube discussion group about ATWT. So I must have loved GL more. Still I feel very sad to announce that today was the final day of shooting of P&G’s final soap. It’s the end of an era.

For some reason they are done shooting a full two months earlier than GL was last year for a similar end date. The sets went dark for the last time today, Wednesday, June 23, 2010. The cast has already had its wrap party (see photos at the second link below). TeleNext has already sent out its hollow message of regret (as if everyone didn’t know the writing was on the wall when GL went and after that obnoxious interview with the P&G head said the era of daytime soaps was over and that they had no intention of continuing to support the field). I wish all the cast and crew the best.

Please send them all your best thoughts and keep the world turning in your heart.

So Long! Farewell! Amen!

UPDATED June 24, 2017: I checked the two links I included and fixed the one. I added the signature block and an image. I’ll also point you to my As the World Turns meal post.
