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.

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 !

    Good lineup. Count me in.

    P&G involved. Complicated. Slings thrown at time. Soaps expensive. 2 entities wanted profit not going to happen.

    Miss ATWT so much . . . can’t wait to see them all again. Just wish it wasn’t on the show that replaced them.

    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 doubtful but I can hope) the “Barker’s Beauties” —- Janice, Holly, etc. (you could have them appear in a segment after Bob since I don’t think the women left the show with a high opinion of him).

    TUESDAY – Y&R, fill it with present cast and bring back some fan favorites (Tricia Cast, Barbara Crampton, Nina Arvesen, J. Eddie Peck, etc.).

    WEDNESDAY – B&B, same thing as Y&R with Susan Flannery, Kimberlin Brown showing up for a segment.

    THURSDAY – ATWT, the ones who appeared and what about the other veterans that no one even had the time to mention on this episode — Don Hastings, Eileen Fulton, Kathryn Hayes, etc.
