I Hope Guiding Light finds a new home because I've only just found this and I've quickly fallen in love with it.

This is a great show with a rich history. Don't cancel it for a game show.

You have to be kidding CBS, The Guiding Light is tradition. Shame on you for trying to get rid of it. I and my family, will be so disappointed in you if you continue with this. It was mentioned that CBS is going to add a new TALK SHOW. Oh yeah, we certainly need another one of those ridiculous experts trying to give us folks advice. I watch none of those shows. I love Ellen, she is the only talk show entertainment worth watching. Leave the daytime programing alone and leave The Guiding Light alone..
Please and Thank You.

GL has been grossly mistreated. First, they put it on at all different times around the country!! NO STEADY TIMESLOT. Then they put it on at 10 am, for gosh sakes ,in the NYC area virtuallly burying it there in the biggest market in the country. This alone has affected the numbers negatively. Then they bring back our great stars like Grant Aleksander and others and don't even give the show time to reap the benefits. Grant is just back and we don't even get to let the ratings reflect all the improvements.
GL isn't glossy and full of posing models and snippets of dialog--it's real and well acted and moving. Please don't take it off!!!

I am so upset to hear that you are cancelling the Guiding Light. This show has been a part of my family since I was a young child. I am now 49 years old and these characters have been a part of my life. Why would you consider cancelling this show when there are so many marginal quality shows on TV such as Big Brother and the Bachelor on TV. Really?? Are you serious??? You are callously cancelling something that is a part of people's lives.... Save the Guiding Light!!!!!

Guiding light hass been a traditin in my family since the beginning. My grandmother watched it with my mom, my mom watched it with me, and now I'm watching it with my daughter. If guiding light goes off the air it will be a very sad day for all of us as this show has been a bond between our generation for years. Hopefully another network will pick it up and the tradition can live on.

Come on you have to be kidding me. Is it our fault that EW ruined the show, please reconsider. Im sure GL will get back on its feet, if giving the chance.
