For many As the World Turns fans, this year's special Emmy tribute to the show fell short. How do you sum up more than five decades of show in a 90-second video clip? Obviously, there was a lot of condensing involved. It wasn't that the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences didn't feel that As the World Turns deserved a longer a tribute.
