Turn off the Lights, . .

. . . the party's over.

CBS Turning Off ‘Guiding Light’ - ArtsBeat Blog - "CBS announced Wednesday the cancellation of the longest-running scripted program in broadcasting history, the soap opera “Guiding Light.”

It has been on radio and then television for 72 years, beginning on NBC radio in 1937 and moving to CBS television in 1952. The last broadcast is scheduled for Sept. 18."

Holy cow!!!! My Grandma, my mom, aunt, cousin, myself, and my sister all watched this show.

Not recently, it's gotten pretty bad recently.

But it is sad to see such a long-running show like that end. Some of the actors on the show were on there for decades.
