Daniel Cosgrove and Marcy Rylan
Barely a day after CBS announced a Sept. 18 series finale for Guiding Light, there is talk that the long-running daytime drama might find a way to run a bit longer, somewhere else.
While visiting TVGuide.com to preview (for a forthcoming second video) Bill and Lizzie's excellent upcoming adventures, Marcy Rylan told us, "Honestly, there might still be a home for the show on another network. We're holding out hope."
But might it be false hope, the typical spin that follows any TV program's abrupt cancellation? A source close to the sudser had no details available, but told us that "options are being explored."
In this video Q&A, Rylan and leading man Daniel Cosgrove share how the cast members who were at work the day of CBS' unfortunate announcement were delicately told the news. Despite months (if not years) of cancellation rumors, Cosgrove says, "I think it just caught everyone by surprise. There was still that bit of shock."
