    CBS cancels As The World Turns

    CBS announced today that long running soap As The World Turns has been cancelled and will end in September 2010.

    As The World Turns also airs on Global.

    It seems like every year a soap get's cancelled, Passions in 2008, Guiding Light in 2009, and now As The World Turns in 2010. It also means CBS is down to only 2 soaps, NBC only has 1, ABC currently has 3, I wouldn't be surprised if one of the ABC soaps is next to go.
    My views are my own and do not represent any company.

    The audience for soap operas is shrinking. Many families have both parents working, so they're not able to stay home and watch them, and the generation that grew up with soaps and watched them religiously is fading away.

    I'm a guy and I hate soap operas but the one soap opera that actually had me watching was Passions, which NBC stupidly canceled (I guess they had bad ratings, though). I think that was the only soap opera that had a chance with the younger up-and-coming generation.

    So yeah, I agree with lunarworks, soap operas will soon be dead.
