Guiding Light takes place in the fictional Midwestern town of Springfield.

Guiding Light was the longest-running drama series in history. It began on radio, as "The Guiding Light", on January 25, 1937, and originally revolved around Rev. Dr. John Ruthledge (played by Arthur Peterson) and his congregation. NBC canceled it in 1939, 1941, 1942, 1944, and 1946. Each time, letter-writing campaigns led to the show's return. It was on radio and television from June 30, 1952 to June 30, 1956; the actors had to perform scripts twice a day. Its first color broadcast was September 11, 1967. The first 30 minute broadcast was September 9, 1968. The first hour-long broadcast was June 16, 1975. The final episode aired September 18, 2009. See more »
Ah, yes. I can remember when I was in high school. The first thing I would do my junior and senior year when I got home was turn on the TV and watch this classic soap opera. From that moment on, I was hooked on it. In addition, I also enjoyed the days when Signy Coleman (Annie Dutton) was on the show. Ever since Saundra Santiago (Carmen Santos) left the show in 2002, I haven't been watching it as much. If you ask me, she was absolutely diabolical. You'd have to have seen the show between 1999 and 2002 if you want to know why. However, this is still a good soap opera. In conclusion, I highly recommend this classic soap opera to all you die-hard CBS fans.
