Trivia:
When Teal Ames's character was killed in a 1961 episode, CBS received so many calls after the episode's broadcast that Ames and John Larkin had to appear at the end of the next day's program to reassure viewers that only Ames' character, not the actress herself had died.See more »

Brilliant, Unusual daytime serial, 9 January 2000
Author: devalier from USA

"The Edge of Night" was without a doubt one of the best daytime soaps ever. Unlike other soaps, Edge focused on intelligent, complex mysteries fraught with irony, suspense, and edge-of-your seat action. The show's ensemble cast was probably the best in daytime history, supporting Edge's reputation a classy, well-written, and terrifically acted program. Sadly, after 28 years of superior programming, Edge was dropped in favor of higher-budget, more popular soaps, all of which in effect plagiarized Edge's plots, action, and individuality. Accept no susbstitutes: Edge was The Best!
