As The World Turns is DONE-Zo! Canceled T

Michael Park: Jack on ATWT from Canandaigua, NY. Thank goodness he's great on Broadway!

Yep...another soap bites it and it's a NYC based one. That leaves ABC's One Life to Life as the last soap on the East Coast.. As the World Turns has been on the air for 54 years. We all have to wonder where in the world the soaps are headed. Or do we?

I think we all realize that in five or ten years there's a real possibility that GH, DOOL, Y&R, etc. may not be on the air on broadcast networks like they are now. Hopefully that won't mean they'll be gone altogether, just in another form delivered via a different medium (cable, internet, etc.).

With ATWT being cancelled the following actors become free agents


Roger Howarth (ex-Todd, OLTL)
Jon Lindstrom (ex-Kevin, GH)
Marie Wilson (ex-Karen, PC)
Lesli Kay (ex-Lois, GH)
Julie Pinson (ex-Eve, PC)
Cady McClain (ex-Dixie, AMC)
Stuart Damon (ex-Alan, GH)
Lynn Herring (ex-Lucy, GH)
Noelle Beck (ex-Trisha, Loving)
Forbes March (ex-Nash, OLTL)


Tom Pelphrey - GH wanted him to play Dante or Valentine

Daniel Cosgrove - OLTL wanted him to play Joey

Plus all of the other talented (and award winning) veteran actors and actresses who have been with ATWT for years.

I hope TPTB are paying attention over at ABC and they hire some of these people to fill in the holes!

I don't watch the CBS shows; but here's a thought...
Soapnet! Why not move them there instead?

it sucks that yet another long-running soap is being canceled, but maybe we'll be able to get ghost Alan back for a little while. they could also try to bring back Kevin and Lucy, but i don't see any of these things happening in the near future.

I've never really watched ATWT but wow... this is really sad... first GL now this. Sadly, the writing is on the wall for OLTL.
