As The World Turns canceled by CBS

As The World Turns canceled

Daytime soaps are not immune to the cancellation bug – even after 54 years. As The World Turns will end its incredible run in September 2010.  CBS has also dropped the 76 year old Guiding Light which hows that the decline of viewers combined with a failing economy meant a daily show was just not making money.  Add to that the fact that many more women are working and not staying home to raise families as was the case years ago means that there aren’t new audiences sitting in front of the couch each day. Former cast members of the show include Marisa Tomei, Meg Ryan, Julianne Moore, Parker Posey, Martin Sheen, Steven Weber and Larry Bryggman.
