"As the World Turns" (1956)
I've watched "As the World Turns" since 1957. It is my second favorite soap these day, "Guiding Light" is number one with me. " As the World Turns has held up over the years. It dropped from number one in my book after they lost their most terrific writer some years ago whose name escapes me. I thought this person was brilliant whom I believe wrote the best plot ever presented on daytime tv which ended at "Dreams End" It's not "As the World Turn's" fault that their shows plots do not have it's former brilliance, no-one in daytime soaps comes close to that writer's abilities. I've watched other soaps over the years & for one reason or another I've dropped them. I have never dropped "As the World Turns" and "The Guiding Light" I think they are the best soaps on tv, even if they don't get the ratings.
