As the World Turns Last Episode Airs on CBS: Soap Opera Cancelled – As The World Turns is perhaps the longest running soap opera on television. The show runs for 54 years until it airs it’s last episode entitled, “The World Stops Turning.”
This is the second soap opera that CBS has canceled in two year and the main reason seen is money of course. As The World Turns features Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete, Marissa Jaret Winokur, and Leah Remin.
ATWT premiered in 1956 with the legendary Helen Wagner as Nancy Hughes utterd those infamous words “ Good Morning Dear”. If you haven’t seen As The World Turns last episode, perhaps it will be a good thing to watch it and see how 54 years of the series ends. Is it a good ending or was it rushed due to the cancellation of contract?
Here is a brief summary of As The World Turns last episode from the website “TV Series Finale”
The last installment aired this afternoon and was filled with closure. Doctor Bob Hughes (Don Hastings) retired from the hospital , Barbara (Colleen Zenk) dissolved her partnership with Paul (Roger Howarth), Casey (Billy Magnussen) left for law school, Chris (Daniel Cosgrove) proposed to Katie (Terri Colombino), Lucinda (Elizabeth Hubbard) and John (Larry Bryggman) got back together, and Janet (Julie Pinson) asked Jack (Michael Park) to be Lorenzo’s godfather.
It seemed like everyone’s storyline was wrapped up in some way, except for Luke (Van Hansis). As fans are well aware, he lost Reid (Eric Sheffer Stevens) last week and yesterday, said goodbye to Noah (Jake Silbermann). The closest he got was to be able to use Reid’s stethoscope to listen to Reid’s heart, now pumping in Chris’ body.
