  • As the World Turns slips to #4 behind Days of Our Lives in Episode Counts

    Although it seemed unlikely to happen way back in 2010, on April 24 Days of Our Lives slid past As the World Turns to become the US Soap Opera with the third-longest time-span on television: 19892 days

    And in 1008 days it will beat Guiding Light to #2, but not before General Hospital moves into the #1 spot in only 56 days. **

    In terms of Episode Counts, Days is still 16 episodes behind ATWT due to the greater number of pre-emptions it's had over the years.

    It's a shame that we don't have some of these shows anymore.
    For me, Guiding Light and As The World Turns will always be numbers 1 and 2 because they were the firsts.
    Cancellation dates don't negate that in my opinion, but this is interesting.

    Sunset Beach and Capitol didn't make the list?

    Thank you for posting mlauenstein

      I stopped the list at Bold and Beautiful as they are the lowest ranked show currently running, so there won't be any lower-ranked shows passing anyone higher on the list. Unless something comes back on the air unexpectedly.

      Of course I'll leave Another World on the list even after B&B passes it.
