According to The New York Daily News, viewers aren't satisfied with the new look and feel of Guiding Light:

A number of readers seem to agree with the complaint of angry viewers that the new style of Guiding Light isn't working.

The 71-year-old soap gave itself a major face-lift last month, with hand-held cameras, extreme closeups of the performers and a generally less "canned" look.

The producers say they're happy and that it gives the show a fresher, more contemporary look. Reader Carolyn Brown, among others, begs to differ.

"Producer Janet Morrison says viewer response has been generally great. I am sorry to say that this is a blatant lie," wrote Brown. "All of the Web sites that I have seen constantly give bad reviews. I would say that about 90% of the feedback is negative. Longtime viewers such as myself demand that 'Guiding Light' go back to the original format. We cannot watch the show as it is."
