    CBS will be sorry for what they have done. No soap fan will watch what crap they’ll replace it with. I’m watching ABC soaps now.

    I also miss ATWT. I will not watch any other soap. I will not watch the replacement talk show, not ever.

    I too very much miss ATWT. I was a viewer since 1958 (I was 2 years old then!)! I’m not watching that crappy-a** talk show in October. I’ll continue watching OLTL at night on SoapNet! Aside from that, I’m through with soaps!

    i doubt i’ll watch another soap unless Van or Eric are cast on one. i’m debating if i want to check out Maura on Y&R, i don’t really like that show or Michael Park or Trent Dawson, but those 2 are doing alot of theater right now.
