News Brief

AfterElton: Best Gay Week Ever. "Fans of Nuke definitely didn't get the Valentine's gift they were hoping to receive from AS THE WORLD TURNS. In fact, judging from the comments on Brian's liveblog of Thursday's episode, viewers feel they were handed a big bouquet of cow puckey. And I can't say I entirely blame them."

Televisionista: It was Valentine's Day on CBS' Procter & Gamble-sponsored and increasingly insulting daytime soap AS THE WORLD TURNS and although kisses were abound, the iconic gay teen couple got to do the only thing they appear to be allowed to - hug. Last time I checked it was 2008, not 1988. But I suppose time has stopped for an old-skewing CBS and an obsolete Procter & Gamble. How utterly embarrassing for them.
