A light will be going out soon on daytime television...Guiding Light, the longest-running drama in television and radio history, will air it's last episode on September 18th.


It debuted as a 15-minute serial on the radio in 1937 and then switched to CBS television in 1952, entertaining generations for 72 years!!

Charizma77 says, "This used to be my favorite soap but I lost interest three years ago and then they moved the time to mornings so I stopped watching it. I am going to DVR the final month for old times sake. I hope they bring back some old charecters. The show deserves an awesome finale and I hope they do it justice!

kathieb923 is sad to see it go too, "This is truly sad, sad news! It is like losing a member of my family. I have been watching this show for over 30 years."

I didn't watch the show, but how sad!!
