As the World Turns is a soap opera on CBS.
The show, in its current, one-hour form, debuted on December 1, 1975. It dates all the way back to 1956, though, in terms of total time on the air. This is one daytime drama that has always filmed in New York City.
The series is famous for slow-moving story lines, as events certainly take place on As the World Turns, but not in the sort of immediate, dizzying fashion as they do on other soaps. A perfect example of this?
The widely-publicized gay relationship on the show between characters Luke and Noah.
Well-known soap opera actors on the series include:
- Van Hansis
- Marie Wilson
- Jon Hensley
