Guiding Light: Bizzie vs. Lyrus

This is one of those polls that I know I'm going to regret asking about. As a Bizzie fan I really want Bill (Daniel Cosgrove) and Lizzie (Marcy Rylan) to end up together, but I'm sure there are those who would like to see a Cyrus (Murray Bartlett) and Lizzie pairing. Even though I have a preference I will say that I would be all for a smokin' hot Bill/Lizzie/Cyrus triangle.

Which couple do you want?

Top 10 Reasons To Watch Guiding Light Right Now

Funny how the universe sometimes lines up and minds think alike, isn't it? Guiding Light is in the thoughts of a lot of people these days. Bloggers, soap journalists and industry watchers — not to mention the writers, cast and crew of GL — are all on pins and needles about this 72 year old institution. The writing has been on the wall among commentators on the Internet and in the soap press for some time regarding GL's maybe/probably/likely cancellation, which would essentially signal the final march along daytime's trail of tears as the end of the genre.

The signs are obvious and ominous: GL has been hovering at a 1.5 rating for the last few months, a situation exacerbated by a genre-crushing free fall in advertising revenues, which have in turn led to massive budget cuts by the networks for all the shows. If GL doesn't get its act together by the Ides of April, as our own Jamey Giddens so aptly put it, the oldest series on broadcast television will bite the dust. However, there is hope. As has been reported here, Guiding Light needs the minimum of a steady 1.8 rating to avoid getting the ax.

Back to minds thinking alike: Just as I was finalizing this list, Mr. Giddens posted his "Top 10 Last Ditch Stunts To Save Guiding Light," followed by Spauldingfield's awesome GL promo posted by Luke Kerr. Because of their excellent efforts I almost decided to not post these recommendations, but the situtation at Guiding Light is so important to those of us who love the show that I felt it was more important to contribute to the call to keep GL on the air and risk repetition than not do so. Therefore, consider these considerations an addition to their efforts. GL needs viewers not tomorrow, but today and here are ten reasons to tune in right now! READ MORE

Quote of the Day: "You Want My Blessing To Bang My Mom?"

Guiding Light's Lizzie (Marcy Rylan) had the quote of the day for me when she asked Coop (John Driscoll) "You want my blessing to bang my mom" and then hauled off and slapped Coop. What is your quote of the day from your favorite soap?

The Hills Spins Off The City

Ellen Wheeler's Guiding Light role model The Hills is getting a New York City spinoff called, you guessed it, The CityMarcy Rylan's Lizzie Spaulding could so be the Springfield version of Lauren Conrad or Whitney Port, if they would just write her that way.

Oh and another thing, both The Hills and The City have arch-nemesis for Lauren and Whitney, who does Lizzie have? No one. Why is it that "reality" TV does soap better than soaps?
