This is unbelievable. As The World Turns has been turning around and has been so great. I am not a long time viewer only since 2007, but it is the first soap i got into and i love it more than any other show on TV. This is such a sad day.

This is awful. I'm speechless. That leaves OLTL as the last NY produced soap? Wow.

Brian Frons is salivating right now...I bet he is even now trying to set up deals to get some of those actors for All My Children.

I feel so bad for ATWT...Damn P&G! And I work for them too!

Oh no! Such sad, terrible news! Ellen Wheeler was announced as going to ATWT YESTERDAY!!! This must be some kind of record

Even if you don't watch this soap, it's a terrible day for the genre as a whole. I'm so sorry ATWT fans!

This is devastating. I have been watching Guiding Light and As the World Turns since I was like five and my grandmother had cancer and lived with us. I was real upset when GL got cancelled but it was alright cuz ATWT was my absolute favorite.

For the 6 remaining soaps, take notice!  The writing is on the wall.  Soaps are dying...quickly!  One dead, one on the do not resuscitate list and 6 on the US government sponsored health plan....Damn!

So what's going to replace it? The all new Newlywed Game with Arsenio Hall hosting?

To the cast and crew of ATWT, thank you for your many years of dedication and great work.  I appreciate the sacrifice you made in your personal lives to bring these wonderful stories and characters into our lives.

Never Surrender, Never Forget.

Please use the remaining time on CBS to tell a great story. 

Best wishes to all of you.

Okay guys, this one was not Ellen Wheeler's fault. She was only directing. Barbara Bloom and Chris "I Don't Care What The Fans Thin" Goutman are to blame.
