News Brief

Nuke-lear Response from P&G
After months of public speculation that As the World Turns was treating its gay couple, Luke and Noah, differently than other couples, many fans were delighted when the two finally kissed again last week. But there were those who were less-than-thrilled: The American Family Association issued a call for action against Proctor & Gamble, which owns and runs the show, for "using explicit, open-mouth homosexual kissing" and making "the decision to support the homosexual agenda."

P&G doesn't appear to be cowering. The company told "P&G has a diverse, global workforce and a diverse group of consumers who use our products. We strive to be a responsible advertiser, and sponsor programming that enables us to connect with a diverse consumer audience. We recognize that there are times when the subject matter on P&G sponsored content will not be acceptable to all viewers, and ultimately, the viewer decides what is right for their personal entertainment choices."

In other words, if you don't like it, don't watch it.

Many Happy Returns on ATWT
It's a week of returns on AS THE WORLD TURNS! INTURN winner Alex Charak is back as Elwood to make trouble for Casey on Monday, May 5 and Tuesday, May 6. Also on May 6, Daniel Hugh Kelley's Col. Mayer once again brings his particular brand of open-minded charm to Oakdale.

Where are they now: Kevin Bacon (Ex-Tim, GUIDING LIGHT)
In the early '80s, as Kevin's acting career began to blossom with regular soap opera work, the Bacon brothers lived for a brief while in the same Manhattan building, where they would, when time permitted, continue to work on songs together. While Kevin was finding success on The Guiding Light, Michael's musical career had taken a lucrative turn toward film and TV scoring. Starting with small, offbeat projects, he has since gone on to win an Emmy for his work on the 1992 historical film The Kennedys, one of many in the renowned American Experience documentary series.
