On today’s Ellen Show and all week long, Ellen DeGeneres has launched a soap spoof in homage to all the recently canceled soaps and as part of a marketing promotion with sponsor Tide ( A P&G product).

In it, Ellen along with comedienne Wanda Sykes and hunk du jour, do a take-off of soaps with long gazing stars, complete with organ music, and a humorous little plot revolving around a lipstick stain.

However, the funniest part of this was the opening title sequence where in very “soapy” fashion, Ellen is dressed as myriad of characters.

Watch As the Tide Turns episode one after the jump!

Too bad Ellen doesn’t have her own network…..she would probably save the soaps, unlike Oprah and her crappy network.

I love Ellen, but I didn’t like the fact that she used Tide as a sponsor. Weren’t they the jerks who killed As The World Turns? ( P & G)

The writers could have used a different brand. It just pissed me off more with them using Tide. I don’t blame Ellen, but the writers should have know better. Then again, they’ve probably never watched a soap opera…I think most of them are 20 or so.

I still miss ATWT!

I like they they are using the intro notes from Days of our Lives in the beginning.
I don’t think it’s the writers that choose what brand. It’s product placement within Ellen’s show. They are getting paid by Tide. I can’t blame Ellen for using it. It is ironic that the brand used to support several soaps and is now sponsoring sketchs of soaps.

As the World Turns Cast To Perform Virtual Reading Of Final Episode

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
