CBS Bravely Shows As The World Turns‘ Gay Kiss to Internet-Only Audience

The 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, where game and talk shows take annual turns accepting an award, last weekend paid tribute to As The World Turns, the CBS soap opera that’s going off the air in the fall after continuously airing since 1956. So producers of the telecast, which also aired on CBS, queued up a tribute to the show that included gay characters Noah and Luke (who once had The Sex). Except television audiences didn’t see the smooch.

Editors cut away to the next scene in the vignette before they locked lips, because ewww yucky!! But the complete version, notes After Elton, has been released in full — kiss and all.

I’m surprised they don’t make you verify your age before clicking play.
