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???
