CBS Daytime continued its year-long celebration as the number one daytime network for 30 years with the release of this epic “Class Photo” featuring over 100 plus daytime favorites from across current and former programs, including Let’s Make A Deal, The Price Is Right, The Young And The Restless, The Bold And The Beautiful, The Talk, As The World Turns, and Guiding Light.

This illustrious group gathered together a few weeks back for this photo shoot which emulates the classic 1978 CBS primetime TV photo shoot which featured, among so many others, the late Mary Tyler Moore.

Along with the photo, CBS released a behind the scenes video of the making of this soon to be iconic photo featuring moments with: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braeden, Peter Bergman, Eileen Davidson, B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, Heather Tom and Don Diamont and the one and only Bob Barker from The Price Is Right.

Check out the the video after the jump and let us know what you thought of the CBS Daytime Class Photo? Can you identify everyone in it? Share your thoughts and comment below.

I miss Guiding Light and As the World Turns.

I wonder if the fans can order the photo?

I miss GL. What they did to that show in the final years was criminal.

Remember Stenbeck’s final funeral on ATWT? His ex wife stabs the corpse in the chest just to make sure he’s really dead this time? Sooooooo good.

So agree Tomas about what they did to GL…I loved GL when Douglas Marland was the head writer…

Yeah Guiding Light is definitely missed. Too bad their previous exec producer Paul Raunch passed away because according to Grant Aleksander (Phillip) PR was working with P&G/CBS about bringing back GL on the internet. It was a done deal and then he passed away.

How do I love Peter Bergman? Let me count the ways. I also love Melody Thomas Scott, the one and only Eric Braeden and Eileen Davidson. How interesting was it to hear MTS talk about having her picture taken with the late and great Mary Tyler Moore back in 78. (by the way, what has MST done to herself? She looks amazing!). I could have done without the women from The Talk trying to hog the spotlight while patting themselves on the back for being number one. Their show is not number one and they are just lucky to be… Read more »

Peter Bergman’s picture is next to the word “Class” in the dictionary. Love him!

I would love to get a print of this BUT Cheryl Underwood HAD to be front and center and ruin it! She is loud AND obnoxious! No thank you.

Yes, she is.

Agreed. The Talk cast period is annoying, and they showed way too much of them in this video. Same with actors from Y&R and B&B, I was hoping to see more of the Guiding Light actors.

Why do they keep on bringing newbies on Bold & Beautiful when we haven’t seen Caroline in ages. She went to New York with the baby, came back and left again. I want to know how she takes Ridge & Brook’s engagement. I don’t think she left because they still show her picture in the credits at the beginning.

The photo is too small to identify who all is in it, but it’s a lovely idea. I wish they would offer it to the fans as a keepsake. Does anyone know if it’s for sale anywhere?

Rodd, did you push the play icon? You’re right–you cannot see much from the small photo but if you play the video it makes a lot more sense.

I did, but it was so quick, I could identify most.

You’re welcome. It’s actually the latest issue of PEOPLE (that’s the date on my magazine) on newsstands now.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

ATWT Favorite, Jon Hensley, Releases New Single ‘I See Heaven’

Former As the World Turns, and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Jon Hensley (Ex-Holden Snyder and Ex-Dr. Meade), has announced not only the launch of his new website, but his new single called “I See Heaven”.

According to Hensley, the new track is a 9/11 20th anniversary song.  Through the holiday season, Jon is noting that you can make donations in lieu of the song and he will take a portion of the proceeds and donate them to various 9/11 charities.

In his welcome note on his site, Jon shares: “Welcome to my site, I am very excited about my new project. Most of you might remember me as Holden, it’s been a long time since the good old days in Oakdale. Who knows maybe they bring them back some day. As the World Re-turns?  After the show did end in 2010, I slowly started getting back into music. I spent some time playing in Las Vegas and decided a year or so ago it was time to release my debut album. Over the last few years, I wrote many songs with my great friend and producer Alan Schwartz. And my 1st single, I See Heaven (911 20th anniversary song) is now available as a download. Sing Out Revolution, my title track which was inspired by the Tennessee Williams quote on my home page, is a revolution on love. I’m planning to release SOR by Xmas 2021. And the full record by early 2022. Join my mailer for updates and thanks for listening!”

So, excited to listen to more of Jon’s music? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
