Will ATWT be replaced by new "Pyramid" remake?

EW.com has an item tonight that CBS is looking at a game show option to replace As the World Turns when it goes off the air in September, and it looks like a remake of  $1o,000 Pyramid is the front runner!

The CBS network confirmed that it plans to shoot a new pilot for Pyramid, which was originally considered as a replacement for Guiding Light until the network decided to go with a  revamped Let’s Make a Deal. Rumor has it they may also shoot a pilot for Password, which first aired in 1961 and was hosted by Allen Ludden.

Apparently, CBS feels the decision to replace Guiding Light with Let’s Make a Deal hosted by Wayne Brady was a great move.  Since now the game show is averaging 2.43 million viewers, up 12 percent from what Guiding Light was attracting when it went off the air.

Please do not take As the world turns off the air. I have been watching for well over 30 yrs as so has my family for 50. Its a timeless show that is allowed to stay would probably outlast tv itself. Please please do not put another reality or game show. There are thousands of them. Just one ATWT though. Its has become apart of my every day life and with so many other people as well. I will not tune into yet another plane old game or reality. Why I as I can turn the channel and there is about 1000 shows just like that…Please let the fans keep there show. It would be well worth the placement. You have people who have tuned into that show for over 50 yrs…yet people drop off the radar on all other shows. That in itself should tell you something right there. How could you cancel a show that people have watched and will continue to watched if allowed and still on. For some cracker jack five and dime show you will replace it with?

I detest game shows particularly one that is replacing soap operas . Soap Operas are practically an institution. Allow “As the World Turns” to remain on the air. You will be disappointing many fans of soap operas and game shows will be a much faded fad that will lose in the ratings.

If they absolutely MUST cancel “As the World Turns”, why not expand “The Bold and the Beautiful” to a full hour? “10,000 Pyramid” would not feel right as a one-hour show. It’d also be cool to see them resurrect that 1960’s cult classic, “Dark Shadows”, as a daytime soap.

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.
