guidinglight

 The Guiding Light is a television soap opera that is credited by the Guinness
Book of
World Records
as the longest-running television drama in history, airing
from 1952 until 2009, preceded by a 15-year broadcast on radio. It stands as
the third longest-running program in all of broadcast history.

On April 1, 2009, CBS canceled Guiding Light due to low ratings, ending its 72-
year run. The show taped the last scenes on August 11, 2009, and its final
episode was broadcast September 18, 2009.
