Trivia

When CBS moved the show from its longtime time slot of 12:30 PM Eastern to 2:30 PM Eastern so that The Young and the Restless (1973) started their afternoon line-up, Procter and Gamble Productions was unhappy with this. NBC offered them their old 12:30 time slot, so P&G moved the show there. Promos asking viewers to "Follow the Search" did not mention the show's new network by name; they simply said "another network." Ironically, the show got far worse ratings in its four (final) years on NBC than it did in the year it occupied the 2:30 time-slot on CBS. See more »

Shows like Mom used to watch!
1 September 2006 | by (Middle Tennessee) – See all my reviews

In my case, this IS a show my Mom used to watch (she watched all of the CBS serials to varying degrees) and unlike today's soaps, as all of the marital infidelity, etc., was never on screen, I suppose it was all right for a little kid to see, although I seem to remember that JoAnne Tate lost a son about my age and it bothered my mother a lot. In those days the plot lines really moved slowly; I could go back to school for nine months and still know what was going on the next summer! I've always wondered how actresses like Mary Stuart who played the same character on the same show for decades did financially; presumably it was good enough that they didn't go look for other work. I've heard that more of the people whose TV careers started on this show became stars after they moved on than any other soap opera. And this show was really that - a true soap opera in every sense with all that implies. When I was a kid it still had the ominous organ music, a carryover from soaps on the radio (even though that this one, unlike "The Guiding Light" with which it shared a half-hour when they were both 15 minutes, did not go all the way back to the radio itself).
