The awful news about the cancellation of As The World Turns also reached the Netherlands this week. The Netherlands is one of the few countries where the show airs and in the 20 years on the air it has always been a success. It has even earned higher ratings than The Bold and the Beautiful. In the Netherlands episodes from June 2008 are airing right now which means that the last episode will air in 2012.
Entertainment show RTL Boulevard talked about the cancellation on Wednesday's episode of their show. You can watch that clip (with English subtitles) after the jump. READ MORE
Daytime's first super bitch, Eileen Fulton spoke with the Associated Press about As The World Turns having the plug pulled.
It's a hell of a Christmas present, said actress Eileen Fulton, who will mark 50 years playing the character Lisa Grimaldi on the show. Her character has been through nine marriages and Fulton was hoping for a 10th before the signoff. I'm just very sad, she said. I'm sad for all of the people who work out there in Brooklyn (where the show is filmed). We're a family. I hate to be split up. It's like a divorce.
