Picks and Pans Review: Viewer's Choice
CBS'S AFTERNOON SERIAL GUIDING Light gets to stay up late on Friday (June 12, 9 RM. ET). Well, it is a special occasion. The soap is marking 40 years on television with Guiding Light: The Primetime Special, a cornucopia of clips arranged thematically. Newlyweds Hampton and Gilly (Vince Williams and Amelia Marshall) introduce a segment on weddings. Hot couple Harley and Mallet (Beth Killers and Mark Derwin) handle the topic of romance. Billy Dee Williams and other GL alumni will drop by. There's also a tribute to Charita Bauer, the show's matriarch for 35 years, until her death in 1985. Before Guiding Light joined CBS in 1952 as a 15-minute program, it had been a radio serial for 15 years. This show has sold a lot of soap.
