In 2009, CBS canceled "Guiding Light" after 72 years on the air, citing diminished ratings. The series, with 18,262 episodes produced over seven decades, was the longest-running scripted series ever produced. CBS replaced "Guiding Light" with a remake of "Let's Make a Deal."
Paul Ranch, the executive producer of "Guiding Light " when the network canceled the series, was reportedly working on a revival of the show prior to his death in 2012.
