Good News and Bad News
The bad news: As the World Turns, now the longest running soap still on TV, has been canceled, although it's been given a long leash -- until September, 2010. To be honest, I never watched it regularly, but when I worked at NBC daytime, it was one of the opposition shows I admired. ATWT took the notion of family and stability seriously, and its fans were loyal and rabid.
On a happier front, this season of Top Chef has been fantastic. Even if you haven't been following it, I hope you'll check out the season finale, tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo (with the penultimate episode re-airing at 9). The top four chefs are by far the strongest crop ever, and among final three, any could win. It should be a great show.
