  • I cannot believe what the liberal writers or producers are now doing to this classic show. It is wrong. In the instructions above keep the language clean? The show has become explictly bad with its new theme of gay male couples.

    ATWT use to be more about families, the Hughes and the other doctor families with their little(or big) affairs. Now it is much much worse. I cannot believe the owners or producers of this show are doing this to this classic soap. I use to watch it for years. Not now. I am very disappointed in what they are doing to this soap. Why? Is it for ratings? Is anyone else doing this on the other CBS soaps? I only watch CBS soaps and this one was my favorite and my mothers from the beginning. Bob Hughes has not changed!
  • It is on a downward slope

    I have watched ATWT since I was about 5 years old. It goes through it's ups and downs. It seems to be on a downward slope since Carly ran off with Simon as a way to arrange maternity leave for Maura West (Carly). They have essentially destroyed Carly and in turn Carly and Jack. There is nothing to root for on this show anymore. The character of Meg Snyder played by Marie Wilson (a nice woman) is just a horror to watch. I'm sure Marie is a good actress she's just being handed material to work with that is making us hate Meg. I used to like Meg but now she seems like an indecisive ninny. Craig or Paul, Craig or Paul, Craig or Paul???? I'm bored watching it and when I'm not bored I want to choke Meg to death.

    I'm just not feeling this show the way I used to. I continue to watch because I hope it will get better.

    I like Noah and Luke (Nuke) but I know the network is going to cop out and not let a gay storyline be played out in the way real gay men interact. I can tell by the response over at the Soapnet boards that people are in an uproar over it. I don't care what year we are people still want to be intolerant.
  • As The World Turns is a Classic Soap Opera originating in the 1050's. Following the daily lives and loves of the staple characters and their families, this program addresses issues such as loves formed, loves failed, teen issues, gay issues, etc..

    I have been a fan of As The World Turns for over 40 years. This used to be one of my favorites and I hated to miss a day. Unfortunately, I had become unhappy with the storylines and the loss of so many of the best actors and actresses on daytime, I did not pay much attention over the past year. I realize after 40 years, there will be repeated storylines and similar situations, but this show has just gone down hill. As The World Turns always made even the most absurd storylines fun to watch. Not anymore. This story NEEDS a Super Couple desperately. They need a heterosexual veteran couple to take center stage and work stories around them. All of our highest ratings have always come from a huge supercouple storyline. They HAD that with Jack and Carly! When Carly got sick and they had the way to bring these two back together, they threw it away YET AGAIN! Margo and Tom could be another super couple if they played it right...instead they just use them as access to the younger generation. Emily is a beautiful and talented actress....but pairing her with Casey???? Are you kidding me??? Why do they do that to such a talented actress?! I have to change the channel everytime they come on screen. It looks so disgraceful! I don't care if he's supposed to be over 18! Geeze, I see NO chemistry there...he looks like a baby! Knowing her history with Danielle and Tom, even Emily wouldn't do this! It again frustrated me to no end! I hated the prostitution storyline for Emily! Emily and Dusty could have made a Super couple easily! Now THERE was chemistry!I think Paul and Meg have great chemistry and have built up quite a history...why can't we have some time enjoying them for awhile before you have to throw in this "mental" issue in the mix?! I mean, how many times can Paul have a gun pointed at him?? Do the writers really believe we have to have a happy couple face such huge drama immediately after they come together??? Come On! Meg is beautiful and has become such an outstanding actress...the two of them can make the screen sizzle without all of this constant unbelievable drama! Which brings me to this all of the women in this town have to have some kind of "mental" issues?! Lilly's breakdowns, Emily's long stay in crazy town, Lilly's daughter's eating disorder, (although, that was a good storyline), Margo's past issues with traumatic stress syndrome, to name a few, and now we have to see Meg cracking! Be careful's only a matter of time before you snap.....Overused! Overused! Overused! Add a new man to the picture...please! Pair up Carley with a great looking stable man or bring back Simon for a long term contract and get some stability on this show! I know we need drama, but the best shows always need a staple! USE YOUR VETERANS, like Bob and Kim and Lisa in other ways then heart attacks and strokes! People over 50 can have wonderful interesting lives that deserve front burner stories aside from deteriorating health, for goodness sake! (Look at some of the backstory from Bold and Beautiful, the character of Sally...God Rest Her Soul!) I have some small hope for the new developements with the virus story...we'll see.... This show still has enough good actors and actresses on it to really make a super comback. I just wish they would reevaluate the situations they have going on think about it more....I miss "loving" this program!
  • Hot new kid with Luke and Noah. "Jack Walker-Pearson"

    I don't watch much Soap. But when I do watch I watch "As the World Turns" or "GL" I just happened to be watching today of all days. I just love the Luke and Noah story line. I'll admit, I'm a fan. But today I saw that new kid, Jack. And I felt compelled to say I saw something uniquely real in his eyes, something wild and untamed. He had such a small part, but I felt him and believed him. I'd love to see more of him. Plus he's hot! Bad colors on him and needs a haircut, but such natural beauty and talent! And his eyes – OMG! I want to know where he's been hiding his whole life.
  • Parker and Liberty: Kissing Cousins

    I don't understand As The World Turns Parker Snyder/Liberty Ciccone storyline. It reeks of white trash. Particularly when no one is concerned that Liberty (brother 1 Brad Snyder's daughter) and Parker (brother 2 Jack Snyder's adopted son) are knocking boots. He's underage and they're cousins.

    Oh, sure Parker isn't Jack's blood, but he is his legal son, which makes it incest. The cast is fast approaching the uninhibited amorality of The Bold And The Beautiful. I'm sickned by it because it sinks well below the supposed taboo relationship of Luke and Noah, which some viewers find repulsive. Well I find incestuousness extremely repugnant.
  • I have watched this soap since its orgination. I can not believe the story line between Liberty and her "first cousin" . If this continues this becomes incest. What a miserable message you are sending to our youth. We wonder where kids get their id

    I can not believe your writers have become this desperate for material. I can not believe your cast has not expressed concern about this developing relationship. Set an example. I am ready to change the channel. I sit here amazed since you have always addressed "social" hot topics. And, oh yeah, Katie..dumped Brad he doesn't seem to be getting the
    message on staying away from Janet. I have watched your
    show from the first episode and am very disillusioned. Our
    children are too impressionable now adays. They believe what they see and "follow the leader". Please nip it in the bud before I change the channel.
  • It's a totally nuts show, where everybody is everybody's sibling. You know...

    I have watched this way to many times. It was just on when I was eating. Finally I eat at another time. Thank God I did. This is a really depressing show. It is so predictable that it makes me want to cry. Like the constant recasting of Hal's character and Craig. Come on allready. And then that child runs a way and that docter gets fired. And then there is a charity and then they are fiting over Katie or Meg or Lily is to fat and so is her daughter. How much drama can you put in one show. Not to mension all the dead coming back to life. Do we remember David Stenbeck.... This will do.
  • When life is boring or stressful, nothing helps more than to yell at the t.v. during a soap opera. ATWT is one of the best because even through the drama, it's a small town and every one is family. Nothing is too bad to be forgiven and forgotten.

    Why Why Why do I watch this show?! It's plots are crazy, unrealistic, and sometimes annoying. The answer however is simple. I love it. I have watched it literally all of my life. I know some of the characters on their probably better than I know some of my own family members. And, to tell the truth, when life is boring or stressful, nothing helps more than to yell at the t.v. during a soap opera. ATWT is one of the best because even through the drama, it is a small town and every one is family. Nothing is too bad to be forgiven and forgotten within a couple of storylines. And no matter whether someone just stole another's baby or dumped them for their sister or accused them of murder (falsely or not), the citizens of Oakdale always come together for family events. (Even if they get into a delicous catfight at a funeral.) ATWT is too easy to get hooked on. I dare you to not be an addict.
  • Not the average soap.

    As the world turns is not the average soap! It is such an amazing show. It is filled with rising actors and actresses and story lines that everyone can relate too. It makes me feel as though I belong in Oakdale. It iss funny, charming, romantic, and suspenseful. The teen story lines are fantastic as well. They are not too dramatic or too dumb, they're really easy to follow and they're also consistent. They do not tend to bring back characters from the dead either, like most soaps do. It iss really an awesome show that everyone needs to watch!
  • As The World Turns is a soap opera on CBS, which celebrated it\'s 50th anniversary in April of 2006. The show focuses on the citizens in the fictional town of Oakdale, Illinois.

    Lately, As The World Turns has become the best soap opera on daytime television. It manages to take somewhat far-fetched storylines and make them seem real, as if it could happen to anyone. You get lost in the show because the writing is superb, and you want to identify with these characters. The show focuses on the core families of today such as Holden, Lily, and Luke Snyder, Barbara and Paul Ryan, Gwen and Will Munson, Carly and Jack Snyder, Mike and Katie Kasnoff, and Tom and Margo Hughes. The show is good at letting everybody have their part, with the new up-and-coming stars of the show but letting the veterans who have been on the show since it started have plenty of air time also, so the age group that watches varies from people of all ages. As The World Turns is known for taking on controversial storylines and social issues with their main characters. Recently Luke Snyder told his parents he was gay, a ground-breaking step in daytime drama, and the show has also recently brought up a sexual abuse storyline with one of the main characters. However, the show manages to have lighthearted storylines such as characters being trapped on a deserted island (in which laughter and excitement is the main point). I recommend this show for anyone who wants to escape from their day for an hour to see what is going on with the people in Oakdale.
  • Fabulous show

    I love to watch this Show..
    It has been a favorite soap opera of mine for about 5 years now..
    The show is packed full of action, drama, comedy, mystery and intrigue and thats why I love it..
    My favourite characters are Katie, Mike nd Alison..
    I hope to watch the show for a long time..

  • A classic soap!

    I watch now for about 8 years as the world turns. I love the soap. It think it is good that they get sometimes now players. That make the show new, and more of this time.

    Sometimes it is borring that the get over and over the same problems. The same bad people are coming back or people wo have better there life turning into bad again..

    I love it that te soap is for 45 minutes! ! I think that is better then 30 minutes each time.

    You don't have to see each episode to follow this show well.
  • You'll come for the drama, you'll stay for the characters

    ATWT is one of the most character-driven dramas on TV today. The history of this show is rich and the subtext behind the dialogue reaches back to 1956, when this show premiered. The Hughes, the Munson's, the Snyders and the Walshes are the dominant families of the show. Yet, all the characters have some connection to each other in a cosmic way. Oakdale is filled with secrets and lies that keep this soapy drama fresh. This ishow is one of the best of its kind still airing.
  • used to watch it long time ago... tried to watch it again but just can't hold any interest anymore

    I used to watch this show religiously about 15 years ago.. It was the era of Duncan & Shannon - Tom & Margo - Barbara & Hall - Lily & Holden , the good old days..The storylines were compelling and interesting.. the focus was more on the adults. nowadays it seems to be more like the O.C. !
    Well maybe it's just nostalgia for me.. and when getting older you just idealise the shows you watched in your youth.
    I can remember the Lilith-Shannon-Duncan storyline with the big scottish wedding, love it.
    Lily fleeing to Malta where she met Damian.
    Margo being pregnant with Hall's baby instead of Tom's.
    good stuff! ;-)
  • Only started watching it when they took Another World off the air.

    Starting my soap watching on on CBS with the Young and the Restless and B&B, I use to switch to NBC to catch Another World. When they took AW off the air, in protest, I refused to watch it's replacement, Sunset Beach (which is now also off the air) and instead I kept the channel on CBS. Only half paying attention to ATWT at first, I eventually got hooked and have added it to my list to watche when I get a chance. As with any soap, they have some good storylines - some clunkers - some good actors and actresses (I loved it when Sarah Brown came to town as Julia!). My thought with soaps is that if you don't like the storyline - don't watch diligently - in a couple of months it will change and maybe you will like the new storylines! Stay faithful!
  • Great show, great cast, mixed story lines

    This is the definitive soap on the air. No other can claim to have been so entertaining for so long. There are a few characters I don't care for, but my all time favorites on any soap ever are Carly and Jack. Janet is also great. I never thought I would like to see Jack happy with anyone other than Carly, but I do like him with Janet. The "new" Craig is great--the only Craig I've ever liked. I also love the way that the relationship between Luke and Noah is portrayed. And the seasoned cast members such as Kim, Bob, and Lisa--well, I'll never get tired of them. And I am so over being interested in Meg and Paul. They are both totally messed up when it comes to relationships.

    Still I am sure they have their fans.

    May this show go on and on and on.
  • keeps you interested

    I am not a big fan of soap operas but this is a truly nice one. It keeps you interested and is very unpredictable. For about forty years or something this show has been broadcasted worldwide. Imagine a story that interests people for fourty years! We have seen many characters grow up to be the adults they are now. You have to be a serious insider though, to figure out the complicated family connections but once you get it the fun begins!
  • I must confession that watching 'As The World Turns' is a guilty pleasure of mine!

    This soap opera is by far one of the best ever created; and its 50th Anniversary is testement to that!

    I have been watching this show since i was a little kid, and even though i would get angry because they did something horrible to one of my favourite characters, i have never stopped watching it.

    'As The World Turns' is set in a town known as Oakdale, where respectable families in society live...but they are humans and are prone to making mistakes like most people.

    The show protrays everyday issues facing families and it is as close to reality as it gets.
    However, except for the occasional promiscuity and adulterous behaviour of one or more characters...who can't help it, since the show is basically confined to the town of Oakdale ( and its limited supply of citizens!).

    Put aside these road bumps, the show is has great romance and passionate love stories, that tell of a tale where love conquers all and that 'all is fair' in Love & War!
  • Great soap.

    I like a lot of soaps on the television and I have to say; ATWT is my favorite. It keeps interesting. Lots of people think it's a old-fashioned soap, but I think it is not at all. I've been watching it for a while now, and how more I see it, the more I like it. When I'm on holiday in Austria, the only sender I can see is the one where they send ATWT. I'm always up-to date then ;). ATWT is special, and it keeps intresting. Lots of good actors and hot guys ;) Love it, a 9.2.
  • I do not agree with you Eve.

    I do not agree with you Eve. Even when you watched it years ago, you can still follow the story. Okay, some people disappeared or switched partners, but always, always you can follow the storyline.
    And Lily and Holden are still together and Margo is still in the serie.
    Now I like it that Katie and Mike are together. And finally Simon is back! I hope that Lucie will disappear soon, I don't like the new Lucie. I liked the story when Carly, Rose and Emily were in that Spa, but they didn't know that they were kidnapped.

    But above all...

    I think it is a great soap.
  • I want to watch this

    I'm living in Australia and really wan to watch this how. Does anyone know where I can watch unedited version? The videos on youtube is edited too much and parts were missing (sometimes it is confusing).

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

  • This show is absoulutely fabulous! I love it it makes me weep tears of joy!

    This show is great! Even though sometimes it gets really is still a great show! me and my mom watch it all of the time! Well....everyday! I come my homewrk....then sit down and watch As The World Turns with my mom. I like it because things you dont expect are going to happen! For example, the slasher thing, everybody thought it was maddy...blah blah blah, then wat do you know its Eve, maddy\\\'s sister. Now, everybody wanted it to be JAde. Well, because jade is a byotch. Nobody likes her. Why do they keep her on the show?!?!?! But, my favorite story line of this show so far, was the slasher one. It gave the show an air of mystery and more people started to watch the show I bet! I mean this show is in no comparrason to HANNAH MONTANA (A show on DISNEY CHANNEL) because that show is the best ever! But As The World Turns is pretty good too!
  • Take a gander at the main page ;)

    I have watched this show since I was in gradeschool, it is so easy to get addicted to it! Even when they are in a plot slump there are still characters to love, some to hate and some to root for. This show can be complex, rich and just plain funny. I'll probably always love it :D
  • need to bring them back....

    I am shocked that they have left us all and now I am asking for you to bring it all back,miss this show so much and really your can do without all those realality shows,we can see that stuff in our own lifes everyday so putting it on tv just aint going to last.....bring the soaps back please?do the right thing cbs......

  • The best soap opera ever !

    This is my favourite american daytime drama. The storylines is great. I love Cleo storyline and i love all the cast. The cast is awesome :-) This show is very long but is not bad. Is awesome ! The second longest running daytime drama kills another soaps :-) I love this show. I live in Poland and we have for american soaps, only The bold and the beautiful. I watching ATWT thanks for internet. I don't understand why the show ratings is low. This is the best soap opera ! Watch ATWT ! :-) Best soap opera in american broadcast history... 10/10 !
  • AS The World Turns is the second longest running daytime drama on television, and has a rich history.

    As The World Turns is a compelling show. The show has an appreciation for its history, as the current characters refer to past characters and events. There are plenty of vetran actors on the show, mixed in with arguably the best young set of actors on daytime. Jennifer Landon (Gwen) and Jesse Sofer (Will) shine portraying a young couple facing many obstacles. The show mixes in humor, played wonderfully by Trent Dawson (Henry). Michael Park is terriffiv as Jack, the character always trying to do the right thing. The writers do well in not writing pedictable/recycled storylines.The most recent example was Will instantly knowing that someone was impersonating his wife. The writers do well in having various characters interact, and writing storylines that do not drag on too long.
  • Good day-time show and cast. Good Story lines

    My mom watches this show everyday her favorite story lines right now are Craig and lucinda , Cleo, Will, Gwen....My mom feels that Carley should have remained gone with Simon, and that sometimes the writers have weird storylines like the one where Adam was still alive dispite the fact that Gwen and Maddie buried him alive. The writers should develop the henry and Vienna story more and let them get married. Tired of Meg and her poor me... she needs to be with Paul not Craig... and they need to kill Craig off once and for all ...really tired of him.
