Calling all Springfield and Oakdale fans, CBS Daytime is commerating its 30 years as the number one daytime television network with several special events, but this one is not-to-be-missed!

Next week on the October 12th episode of the Daytime Emmy Award winning talk series, The Talk, former cast members from Guiding Light and As the World Turns will join stars from current CBS series, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

The Talk will feature two mini-reunions during the hourlong episode.  On board and set to appear from Guiding Light are:  Kim Zimmer (Reva Shayne Lewis) Robert Newman (Joshua Lewis), Grant Aleksander (Phillip Spaulding), and Beth Chamberlin (Beth Raines).  From As the World Turns: Martha Byrne (Lily Snyder), Colleen Zenk (Barbara Ryan), Ellen Dolan (Margo Hughes), and Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda Walsh).

This will be a heart-tugging moment for fans of these two iconic shows: Guiding Light, ran on TV from 1952 to 2009, and As The World Turns bowed in 1956 and ran for 54 years till it went off the air in 2010.So, excited about the line-up from GL and ATWT on the special episode of The Talk?  We will update fans in the days ahead with the final line-up from B&B and Y&R.   Comment below!

It was always funny how fans of AMC and OLTL say they boycott ABC over those two soaps cancellation but CBS cancelled these two iconic soaps GL ans ATWTs and no one said they were boycotting that network!!!

hey Jimh..
ABC has the best primetime soaps, really great entertainment programing.
If they want to be kooky and miss out on the awesome series, their loss, and foolish..
Like g’ma would say;
”don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” ….

Anyways, I have no idea as to who those people are lol, so you enjoy seeing them, once again !

The amount of time spent with the GL and ATWT actors was PATHETIC. Each group must have gotten no more than 5 minutes. Very sad. If The Talk wanted to “celebrate” 30 years of CBS being #1 in the ratings, why not devote a whole week (5 episodes) to it, giving each show its own hour??? There primarily were 5 shows in the period (if you exclude “Capitol” which was cancelled in 1987, after the first year of the 30 year run and “Let’s Make a Deal”)….. MONDAY — Price is Right, bringing on Bob Barker, Drew Carey and (highly… Read more »

‘Soap Opera Know-It-All’ Virtual Game Show Debuts

This week, the Michael Fairman Channel dropped the premiere episode of the first-ever virtual soap opera game show, Soap Opera Know-It-All.  

The game features four soap fans from around the country who test their knowledge against each other for prizes and the bragging rights to be the “Ultimate Know-It-All” come seasons end.

With the coronavirus pandemic still among us and life not fully back to normal, the game show is produced and hosted by Michael Fairman that brought fans from different parts of the country together for the kick-off.  They are: Marni Ockene, Floyd Elwell, Nicholas Hess and Gina Patterson.

 

The game is played in two rounds, and the players receive points for each correct answer as they choose questions from 2 game board categories which are all soap operas; either primetime or daytime in a ‘Jeopardy’-like format.

However, come the knock-out round we are left with two players who try to answer the final question from this week’s guest performer, The Young and the Restless‘, Sharon Case (Sharon).  If no one is eliminated, the game goes into “Sudden Death”.

On each new episode, different soap operas will be featured on the game board and/or in different amalgamations, plus you never know just which of your favorite soap stars might pop up!
