Today is a sad, sad day in the world of daytime television!
The final episode of As The World Turns airs today, after a 58 year run, including 4 years on the radio, and 54 years on TV. Wow!
The show debuted in April, 1956, and has been a staple of American culture for decades.
Here's a statement about the show's ending by CBS' Senior VP of Daytime Programming, Barbara Bloom:
"The true legacy of 'As the World Turns' will be the fictional characters and stories of a small Midwest town that resonated every day with millions of viewers over multiple generations, becoming a treasured daytime institution in the process."
Still kind of hard to believe that this legendary soap opera is ending. Even if you didn't watch the show…it's still a tough reality to accept!
How do U feel about the end of As The World Turns after 58 years?
