CBS Daytime is continuing to celebrate their 30 years at number one in the ratings with an absolutely iconic "class photo” that will go down in history! Over 100 stars from soap operas, talk shows, and game shows were brought together for an iconic photo, including actors from THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as well as the late, lamented AS THE WORLD TURNS and GUIDING LIGHT!

Back in 1978, CBS took a class photo that included celebrities like Carol Burnett, Bea Arthur, and Mary Tyler Moore, and they recreated it in 2017 with the current stars of CBS Daytime. Impressively, THE PRICE IS RIGHT’s Bob Barker actually appears in both photographs!
“It’s a wonderful experience,” Barker said. “I’ve enjoyed every moment of it, and I’ve enjoyed talking with these people again.”
B&B’s Heather Tom (Katie) was thrilled to see everyone who assembled for the massive undertaking. “I’m so excited to see people from the past and people that I grew up watching,” she marveled.
Recalling the original photograph from the 70s, Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) admitted, “That was such an iconic portrait. It hung in the hall for many years. So it is exciting for us to be a part of something like that.”
CBS released a behind-the-scenes video of the shooting of the new photo where you can see some of your current and past daytime faves having fun with each other and talking about what the experience means to them.
The stars also took tons of their own personal backstage photos at the epic shoot and you can see them in the amazing gallery below!
