  4. 1clockworkorange says:

    the story lines were just no good anymore (they never really came back from the original Danny and Michelle)

    It’s been one whole year without Guiding Light. I still miss it very much. I wish there was facial expressions on this page because I’m crying.

    I wonder if The Simpson’s Springfield is a parody of this Springfield

    @rockermom58 coz soaps are boring and stupidly written

    Makes me cry just seeing this! RIP GL. RIP ATWT.

  11. JONgal7 says:

    Shame on CBS! GL was the BEST!

  12. AdArmand says:

    In the early 90s, Guiding Light was written with all the care, conscience and passion of George Eliot’s Middlemarch.

    I was so happy to see that Original Recipe Alan and Roger made the cut into this tribute, as well as a shot of the great Nola Reardon Chamberlain, Frank and Eleni… Though I wish there had been more clips from both the seventies and eighties, to show that GL was the gold standard long before Reva took over the show and they turned Phillip into a lunatic (which thankfully was fixed before the end) and there was an Alan before they turned him into a cartoon.

  14. TheJetsfanatic says:

    @whalers59 Your completely right somebody should start a website to show canceled soap operas. Or somehow start making new GL and ATWT episodes on the internet like the GL people tried to do by cutting their salaries.

  15. rekcufrats says:

    I miss Guiding Light soooo much! It was always a show I would turn to when I felt like I needed a friend…weird I know…but that’s how it felt.

  16. cowgirlamy1 says:

    Hands down GL was the best show on TV in its heyday. Nothing could touch it. Us fans warned TPTB for years the show was severely lacking in quality since 1998 but it fell on deaf/stupid ears. CBS, Les Moonves, and Proctor & Gamble shamefully abandoned this show after this show gave them so much loyalty and revenue over its years. I wish some of the big stars who got their start on GL would have paid tribute in the end. Julianne Moore did for ATWT and has my respect forever. That is class.

    put “Betty White” in the title of this and maybe more people will see what they missed! Guiding Light, the best soap EVER!!!

    look when Jessica walks to Crystal, and Crystal takes Jessicas hand and put it on her waist. you can see if you look really close. SO CUTE!!

  22. vicehoundelite says:

    I cried watching this.

  23. whalers59 says:

    I can relate, John. I’m a 38-year-old male, married with two kids. My mom listened to Guiding Light when it was on te radio, and I started watching it with my mom when I was just five years old back in 1976…even before the Spauldings made their first appearance. This show is a family tradition that goes back to my great grandmother, and I wanted to pass it on to my kids, who are three now. I hope it comes back in some fashion…don’t give up hope.

  24. johnbond25 says:

    Let me just say that I think it was wonderful that they used that theme song “Hold on to love” in the tribute. I am a 30 year old male and I remember my mom watching Guiding Light every day . When the show ended for the day my Grandmother would call my mom and they would talk and review the show for hours. Every time, believe it or not I hear that song it does bring memories and tears to my eyes, so THANKYOU for making that theme song as part of the tribute and bringing back great memories. :)

  25. fullimmerzion says:

    I watched the show since 1993. Buzz Cooper was my favorite character since his first day on the show… then I loved the Coopers, Jenna, Alex, Alan, Roger, Holly… almost everyone in Springfield. And I miss them all. Wonderful soap… simply the Best!!!!!
