It was really heart breaking when The Guiding light was canceled. Now ATWT The only good soap tha we had. Im disappointed in CBS for not listening to all the older fans of both. Game showw are dumb and a waste.

Guess what all you 35 year old number crunchers,there are actually intelligent people who watch escapist media entertainment. I am a Ph.D who is absolutely sick of political talking heads, gurus constantly telling how to improve myself and divas who have an opinion about everything and anything and non thinkers who listen to their guests like a preacher at a revival meeting. Escapeism is mentally healthy. I tape and enjoy the plots and intrigues and still see you commercials even at 11 O.K. C.B.S &P.& G. I won't watch your replacements or your shows and even as a P&G shareholder I won't patronize you.P.S. I read Steven King and Belva Plain ,too. Don't presume to know everyone's preferences----you are usually wrong.

I can't believe that CBS has cancelled ATWT. Why on earth would this happen?? If it is replaced, I don't think I'll watch whatever replaces it. This is 2 times in the past year that you've taken good soaps off the air! If it's for another game show, you're going to lose lots of viewers. I know I won't be watching. Oh yes, why did 3 of the actors win Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress if this soap is not producing story lines that people enjoy?? Give me a break CBS... I want ATWT back!!!
