Trivia

When CBS moved the show from its longtime time slot of 12:30 PM Eastern to 2:30 PM Eastern so that The Young and the Restless (1973) started their afternoon line-up, Procter and Gamble Productions was unhappy with this. NBC offered them their old 12:30 time slot, so P&G moved the show there. Promos asking viewers to "Follow the Search" did not mention the show's new network by name; they simply said "another network." Ironically, the show got far worse ratings in its four (final) years on NBC than it did in the year it occupied the 2:30 time-slot on CBS. See more »

Back in the 1980s, soaps ruled daytime. It's not replaced with talk and service shows now. There are only 9 shows. Only four are produced in New York City and the 5 are produced in Los Angeles. There was a time when it was 14 and New York City ruled daytime television. Those days are long gone because of production costs and the fact that audiences don't seem to be interested in daytime television as much as prime time. In England, soaps are very popular and acceptable. They have become part of their culture. It's sad that the same country that produced the early daytime serials like Search for Tomorrow which showed Agnes Nixon's creative genius and actors like Mary Stuart and Larry Haines play Jo and Stu for 35 years to lose daytime television. Daytime soaps like Search for Tomorrow are no longer being produced in New York City. I don't believe New York City will ever reclaim or want to reclaim it's title of the daytime television industry. It's a shame. There are plenty of actors who want to stay in New York City and work in stage, film, and television without having to relocate to Los Angeles. Maybe the answer is north in Toronto where actors and actresses can work on stage, film, and television. I remember Mary Stuart and Jane Krakowski from Ally McBeal fame in this show. This was a pleasant half-hour on television. We don't have them anymore.
