    Really Proctor and Gable? I mean you are really going to use CamMat instead of one of your actors from ATWT? I mean really? It doesn’t matter that you have a talented cast to chose from—you would rather use someone with 1/2 the acting chops? Really??

    Is this your subtle way of letting the fans and ATWT cast & crew know that you are canceling the show? I mean really? How nice P&G–you suck–and I mean really!

    If only Seth Meyers would do something like this on SNL. Well, maybe–they did talk about the end of Guiding L:ight this season.

    I think it shows that P&G can poke fun at the daytime drama genre they created over 70 years ago. Relax posters, it’s just a fun online site that sends up the ridiculous nature of soap operas. Has anyone watched some of the videos, they’re funny. Sandy is in a coma and they throw her a surprise birthday party. It’s hilarious actually.
