So after 13,858 episodes As the World Turns ended on Friday to little fanfare.
Apparently the two and half tornadoes that hit NYC was more important. So any special soap opera coverage never happened.
As the World Turns was a NY filmed showed and it should have been an event but with the bad weather and the fact the show wrapped up back in July it did not have a big impact.
The final episode showed no old clips instead it had the chief of the hospital retiring in a quiet moment while a glass globe spun on his desk.
The ending was awkward since the shows power couple, Holden and Lilly, were not back together. This is because the original actress who played Lily was dumped last year and the replacement was not as good. Also ever clip of Lily was the original actress so they chose not to show her face again which was a big mistake.
As far as I can tell all the storylines wrapped up with love and babies.
So for the next week instead of showing clips and best of episodes the will have The Price is Right. Then after that they will have a new talk show that is just a copy of The View, which itself is a copy of Politically Incorrect.
The golden age of TV is gone and if I never get an HDTV I no longer care.
