Courtesy/CBS

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.

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.

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.

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
