Guiding Light information

Guiding Light cruiseCBS’ long-running soap opera Guiding Light left the air last September after more than 50 years on television. Many viewers found it hard to say goodbye to the characters and the performers who played them. Now, if you have the money and time, you can say goodbye up close and personal.

A “So Long Springfield” cruise is taking place on Carnival’s Glory ship from July 31st until August 5th. The boat is set to sail out of New York City and visit St. John, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Performers scheduled to take part include Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Justin Deas, Grant Aleksander, Beth Chamberlin, Ron Raines, Jordan Clarke, Tina Sloan, Roger Bogue, Liz Keifer, Michael O’Leary, Frank Dicopoulos, and Mandy Bruno.

Guiding Light

The stories of Springfield's multi-generational families unfold in this long-running drama. The soap opera began as an NBC radio program in 1937 and continued until 1956. The show's title refers to a lamp in the study of Reverend Dr. John Ruthledge, a major character in the radio years. The light could be seen at a distance by family and residents when they needed help or guidance.

After more than 15,700 episodes, CBS has cancelled The Guiding Light. Thankfully, the company that actually owns the show, Proctor & Gamble, wants to keep it going -- perhaps online or via a cable channel. Jeannie Tharrington, Director of Communications of P&G's TeleNext, said, "We're looking at all our options. This show started as a 15-minute radio show, and then it was a half-hour television show, so it has adapted over the years." If you'd like to see the show continue, let them know that you support their efforts and encourage them to keep searching to find a way to "keep the light on." Here are some suggestions. If you like the show, make sure that you tune in to watch it on CBS. Encourage your friends to do the same. The show's decline in viewers is the reason why the show was cancelled. The higher the viewership, the more likely it is that P&G will be able to find a new home for the soap.
