It's time for another edition of Notes from Around the TV Horn! As The World Turns, the long-running daytime drama, will complete its final season on the CBS Television Network in September 2010. CBS has decided not to renew the show for the 2010/2011 broadcast season, thereby ending its 54-year run on CBS. The epitome of multi-generational, serial storytelling, As The World Turns has been entertaining generations of fans for more than half a century. The show boasts a well-loved and long-tenured cast, including actress Helen Wagner (Nancy Hughes) who spoke the first words on the premier broadcast of ATWT in 1956. To this day, Nancy is still at the helm of the Hughes family, earning Wagner the distinction of portraying the longest-running character in television history. ATWT joins Guiding Light, which ended this past September, as a canceled long-running soap opera.
First-run syndicated series The Bonnie Hunt Show will go off the air after the end of this season. The Warner Bros. produced series is currently in its second season. The series is averaging only a 0.8 household rating.
Meanwhile, Twentieth Century Fox's Judge Alex and Divorce Court have both been renewed through the 2011-12 season. For next season, 2010-11, each program is cleared in 75% of the country and in the top 15 markets as of now, including on the Fox Television Stations in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago. B&C reports that Twentieth is also offering off-network Nat Geo's Dog Whisperer to stations for fall 2010 and off-net FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia for fall 2011, as well as renewing Fox's Family Guy for a second cycle. The company also is marketing Family Guy spin-off, American Dad!, for a possible fall 2011 launch. Stay with us for more on this at NATPE next month!

A reminder that ABC will air the new holiday special Disney Prep & Landing tonight at 8:30pm, followed by an all-new Scrubs, and the season premiere of Better off Ted at 9:30pm! Watch!
