    I loved both and still miss both. (Even though I agree they ruined GL @ the end). Now I get to watch Y&R and B&B which don’t even come close IMO. I agree with the poster who said in a perfect soap world the two CBS soaps on air right now would be ATWT & GL (the older, better version of GL).

    Witch... Yep.

    albeit, the older characters, i.e. Lindsay Frost, and others, they were relatable to my almost 13 yrs, older than me big sister.

    She liked the taller blonde, best. (That would be Lindsey Frost) She was saying, she was a better realistic, fit in real well, more than

    she said the other (played by Meg Ryan.) I didn't start watching til years later." Adios.

    ATWT to me felt slower in pace. Not as action adventure as much for the most part, unless Duncan was involved. GL felt briter in terms of atmosphere. I don't know how to put this. ATWT had a 7 pm nocternal feel to it. GL always felt like all the action was taken place at 2 pm in the pm. ATWT felt like all of the cast were on everyday and they would be at family/work/social events, but still playing out their story. GL felt like individual stories were playing out. The Bauers/Spalding/Lewis/Cooper Clan were the focal point.

    GL felt like I was visiting my cousins. ATWT was a bit more like family. Even though my ethnic background is Jamaican. Lisa would be my God Mother. Kim/Bob would be my Aunt and Uncle. Tom/Margo would be by older cousins. Jessica would be my Aunt. If I go by how they made me feel watching it.

    ATWT was better but I liked both soaps. I wish CBS had kept all their soaps. I miss ATWT and GL a lot.

    I miss seeing Lucinda, Josh and Reva on my TV!!!

    This is such a Sophie's choice question for me. I watched GL more because I would get to see the entire episode. I'd only get to see the last half of ATWT when I'd get home from school. Once I had a DVR though, I never missed an episode of either. GL strayed from it's roots where ATWT tried to stick closer to theirs. I really wish that another network would have swooped in and saved them both.

    I prefer Lindsay Frost over Meg Ryan.
    I always thought Mary Ellen Stuart would've been a good Betsy recast but she wasn't right for Frannie. It also really bugged me that they made Frannie and Sabrina not look alike anymore. Terrible continuity, and a missed opportunity for storytelling, as "twins" are a great way to showcase an actor's range and talent.

    I liked GL better through the 90's and then ATWT became the favorite until the end. GL become a hot, ugly mess during most of the '00s. ATWT ended with some dignity, although, looking back, it was pretty terrible in the last 3 years.

    Preach. If we were living in a perfect world, the two CBS soaps on the air right now would be As the World Turns and Guiding Light while the ABC soap would be One Life to Live and the NBC soap would be Another World.

    100% truth.

    I always like comparing soaps. GL and ATWT were very unique in their shows. Its not like ATWT was like YR or GL like GH. I guess with Mindy/Rick/Philip/Beth would be counterparts to AMC-Jessie/Angie/Jenny/Greg.

    In Russia we only had chance to watch "Santa Barbara", "Sunset Beach", "Bold and Beautiful", "Passions" and "Dallas" with "Dynasty". I never watched soaps like "Guiding Light" or "As the World Turns". I know them only from the wikipedia and youtube.

    I must admit that now I watch "Days" and "B&B" and I think these sopas are great too. "Days" remind me the style of "Santa Barbara" and "Sunset Beach".

    I have 2 agree with U on this one.


    Although, my mom watched both & I still remember Ed/Mike Bauer when they were were much younger.

    But, IMO the 1980's was their very BEST they ever were with the introductions of...the Lewis, the Spauldings, and especially REVA SHAYNE!

    And the soaps on today are an embarrassing comparison.

    Absolutely! I liked both soaps but probably preferred ATWT. I was so sad when it went off the air.
