    Okay remember when i talked about pokemon going on forever? Well i found a show that has been airing since 1965 (acording to wikipedia). Any of you heard of the show Days of Our Lives? I remember when my sisters would watch this way back when i was in kindergarten. How can a show go on for soooo long? Any of you have any thoughts or comments on this?

    yeah its a soap. My mom used to watch it back in the day. It goes on for so long from what I remember my mom saying is that they would kill off all the characters then just make new ones or something but I'm not sure as I never really did watch the show

    some soaps started as radio shows and then went to tv and are still on but i do not know what one because i do not watch them

    edit ok i looked it up Guiding Light - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Due to this series run, it is not only considered to be the longest soap opera, but the longest-running scripted show in history. It has been announced that Guiding Light has been renewed into its 72nd season through 2009.

    The program was created by soap writer Irna Phillips, and began as an NBC radio serial on January 25, 1937 before moving to CBS on June 30, 1952, as a televised serial.

    Did you know that?

    In the 1920s, radio was booming, and broadcasters wanted to get advertisers in on the act to increase their station's profits. So radio stations convinced businesses that sold household goods to sponsor radio shows. To appeal to the main consumers of these items -- female homemakers -- the radio stations created the daytime serial drama format. The first radio soap opera ran in Chicago and was sponsored by a margarine company.

    Soon, all the networks had serials aimed at women, and companies selling cleaners and food products rushed to sponsor the shows. For example, Proctor & Gamble's Oxydol soap powder sponsored a popular serial drama in 1933. By 1939 the press started calling the shows "soap operas" because so many were sponsored by soap manufacturers. "Opera" had already been used in a non-musical sense in the '20s with "horse opera," which described Western movies.

    Now you know!
