‘Pyramid’ to Replace ‘Light?”

Thursday, April 2, 2009 10:40 PM EDT | By Scotty Gore (SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Only one day after CBS announced that they were cancelling "Guiding Light," the network provides a glimpse at what may take its place on their daytime line-up.   In an update to a story SON first brought you yesterday concerning the cancellation of "Guiding Light," television's longest running daytime drama, new details have emerged as to what may move into the time slot presently occupied by the iconic soap opera on the CBS schedule.  TV Week is reporting that executives at CBS are pondering replacing "GL" with a revamped version of the classic game show "The $25,000 Pyramid," according to an Entertainment Weekly story posted on their official website early Thursday morning. While neither CBS nor Sony, the studio developing the supposed project, would comment publicly, sources...
After 72 years on air between radio and television, CBS's "Guiding Light" will cease broadcasting on the CBS Television Network due to low ratings. Love may save the world, but apparently it wasn't enough to save television's longest running daytime drama. Even with having its name published in the Guinness World Record Book and winning three Daytime Emmy's for Best Drama Series (the most recent being in 2007), "GL" found itself unable to withstand the mass exodus of viewers from the traditional daytime soap format in recent years.
