    Let's Make A Deal Will Take Guiding Light's Spot.

    Monday, August 03 2009


    (CBS)
    Making the news of Guiding Light's cancellation even more real, CBS has made it official that the soap's time slot will now be filled with a game show. A new version of the series, "Let's Make A Deal" is now expected to take over. Comedian and former talk show host Wayne Brady has already shot a pilot for the new project which is set to begin airing after Guiding Light goes dark on September 18.

    Since the soap opera's cancellation was initially announced, it was widely rumored that a remake of "The Dating Game" or the "$100,000 Pyramid" would come to take its place. Both of those shows have also been tested and may still be appearing on CBS at some point.

    Well, CBS will be losing this viewer! The only reason I watch tv during the day is to watch Guiding Light. Now why is Guiding Light the only soap to get the ax?

    Ditto that. As for Guiding Light being the only soap to get the ax---I PREDICT THAT IF THE WRITERS DON'T START DOING BETTER WITH ATWT, IT WILL BE THE NEXT TO GO!!

    I do not care what takes Guiding Lights time slot. I will not be watching it or anything else that is on CBS daytime.
